comment Good sources for creating a poison and blackmail-based character? P&P
It is a bit confusing, since I've mostly seen "pen & paper" used to describe tabletop RPGs, to differentiate from LARPs or from CRPGs.

comment What is the background of Christian resistance to role-playing?
Any answer that doesn't address the history of Christianity and RPGs - Jack Chick's Dark Dungeons, the demon/devil->tanaari/baatezu shift and other milestones in the history of the hobby is, I feel, extremely incomplete. Christian organizations have given explicit reasons for their disapproval, and they should be mentioned in a good answer.

@Pallid Closing as a duplicate isn't meant to punish you for doing wrong, just to point you - and anyone who might find his way here in the future - towards the place where you'll get the best answer. No point in duplicating the answers, so we just link them this way.

comment Forgot the name of a game I saw once - like Ars Magica, but more freeform
You mention "saving the file", implying you encountered this online. Could it have been a homebrew addition to Ars Magica?

comment How to help a player to roleplay the character he created?
I think it's perfectly normal and non-despotic - until it causes a problem, which is (from the limited information we have) what is happening. My starting point us the problem, not the request for specific characters.
