So, there's a habit of mine that I'm worried about. And it's something I've noticed others occasionally doing. It's the act of basing your characters off of those from other works. For example: Basing a Death God off of the title character from Memnoch The Devil. Or a demigod son of Apollo who draws from Icarus/Jay Guthrie in terms of looks and talents with a mother inspired by Patsy Blackwood. That kind of stuff.
Anyone else on the sight do this? And...It's okay to do, right?
