Description: Prior research in character believability has demonstrated the importance of believability for establishing the psychological and social reality of character activity within the game world. We believe a gap exists in utilizing how characters grow and develop as an aspect of believability. We explore how values and beliefs can be utilized as a moral reasoning device; we also look at how they can improve the believability of a character, especially within faction games.
