D&D Tips n Tricks #25 | Motivations

"Remember that everyone in the game has motivations. Your character, party members, NPCs, and the bad guys all have wants, needs, goals, and baggage. This is also where that insight check comes in handy. Knowing a person’s motivations is extremely helpful in predicting their actions or in negotiations. Take notes on any suspected or known motivations for characters- including your own. Reminding yourself of your characters motivations helps make choices for them easier."
