How do you feel about the "f**k"-word? How would you want me to spell if I used it in an FPL Character? ****? F**k? F---? What do you usually do?

Try to avoid using it. But uh any censoring would be fine if we can tell what you mean.

I use it in some characters, but Pseudo has a point, overuse will make the writing seem immature and bring nothing extra to the table. Use it if it serves a purpose. It's legal to say, and supposedly Landon was the first guy to use f*ck in a character sheet, but he's a good writer so he can get away with it.

So I guess that's my advice; only do it if you think you can get away with it. That's pretty good advice all around I'd reckon.

It's how you use it. If you're not comfortable with it, you can use alternatives or self censorship. I wouldn't recommend using it unless you're fairly decent a writer though. It's an effective word when used right, but it can back fire and *vulgarity* up your narrative if used unwisely.
