Never compromise character, not even in the face of RP death
Character is much more important
Sitting on the fence
Plot is much more important
My characters are puppets dancing on the strings of the plot. Mwahahaha!
I said Marginally Character, but that's not because I think character isn't that important. I generally plot solely with my character in mind, so my stories wind up being what I would like to see through my characters, not merely a cool story in which my characters are actors.
