[Ask RPedia] Getting Together: How To Meet Your Characters!
Anonymous asked: Alright, I’ve been reading your stuff and it’s all really helpful and you’re awesome- I’ve gotta ask this though. How do I get two characters to meet and a story going? I can’t seem to come up with good reasons for people to interact with my character and it’s really frustrating.

Any tips or anything would be great!
