Player Styles

When it comes to being a player for TTRPGs, there are so many different types of players with various archetypes. Sometimes they work well together, or they should avoid one another at all costs. Everyone is unique with their own interests and personality. It is important as a player to understand your play style. Why? So that you can find the correct type of party, and be able to look for GMs that will adequately meet your needs. It is also important to know what you're good at, but what you also tend to risk doing - or what other players might be like. As a community, we can all improve and do our part to try and help the TTRPG community thrive from good, reputable games.

I have compiled a list of Player styles below that I believe cover every aspect of nearly every player, with endless mix and match combinations being possible. I am hoping that providing this content will mean happier players and Game Masters all around. Each player style description also includes what type of players and GMs will be best for them.

Just remember, every player is unique, as we are all individuals with unique identities. No one can be entirely boxed in by style labels, but it's still good to have an idea of where you land to avoid Crit Crab moments, just purely due to interest conflicts between other players, the GM, and yourself.

What's your Player Style mix based on this list? Share down below.

Think this could be useful for your own party or community? Make sure to share with them and help everyone get on the same page! And if you're not confrontational but have some concerns about how your players are acting in the game, you can always share this to make them "subtly" aware of their own risks and negative traits.
