Who is your Secret Crush?



Love is in the air! Or is that the gentle lavender perfume of the druid leaning against the cave wall not ten feet away?


Love is one of those fickle emotions that can come and go faster than the speed of light. But its younger sibling, the Crush, can sometime come out of nowhere and consume our every thought, even before we know love is anywhere to be found.


Even if your character never acted on it or let it wash over them, chances are your character probably had at least one crush on another person at some point in their life. If they did, did it happen during their childhood, or was it in adulthood that it manifested?


If it happened in childhood, was this crush a friend to your character? Or was it someone they only knew from a distance? Did your character ever let this person (or others) know about this crush? If so, what was the outcome? What trigger brought about this crush, and how did it affect your character's life?


If it happened during adulthood, you can ask these same questions, but then add a couple more. Did the crush manifest before or after joining your character's current adventuring party? Is the target of your character's crush an NPC (non-player character) that they met in their hometown or at some point during their adventuring? Or is this a crush of their current adventuring party?


RPGs are all about developing relationships with your character's adventuring party and sometimes those relationships turn into crushes or even full romances. It is a good idea to work with your DM/GM and/or the player whose character your character has a crush on to see what kind of awkwardness and fun can be born out of this secret (or not so secret) crush.
