I have decided to run a Star Wars KOTOR setting RPG for two people. In deciding on this game I examined the Dread game and unfortunately Jenga isn't tenable over Skype.

However the Dread system of surveying your players is fantastic. I am enjoying toying with survey questions to help PCs who aren't great at developing characters make them. I even think such questions are useful in taking veterans out of their comfort zones, or making them examine their roleplaying traits.

I think most questions you can ask a player are workable in any genre. Let's brainstorm questions, shall we?

Why did you cheat just to win?
How did you survive the cave in?
Who did you leave behind?
When did you know you were capable of killing?
How did the dark side tempt you?
What broke you, what fixed you?
When you were given to the order who fought to keep you?

I am confused by this thread.

Okay I may be drunk but let me try and clarify.

The Dread system demands the play character be created by answering survey questions. This gives the Host (GM) hooks to use to enhance the game. Or make the game interesting. I am making a KOTOR rpg wherein I intend to use this method.

HOWEVER I figured it'd be cool to just have a Dread-Question-General thread. What questions can we ask PCs to force them to make characters that interest them AND give GMs things to work with?

Do you pity those who cannot use the force?
Power, or control?

Do you have the right to intervene in the affairs of others?
Does the ability to change things infer a moral responsibility to do so? How about the right?
Whats more important, Control over others or yourself?
Is it better to be safe or free?
Is it more better to lead or to follow?
