This video will give you a couple of ideas for programming more characters for your story.

The new character needs to be a new sprite.

Click “choose sprite from library” to pick your character, or duplicate the monster to reuse the “show feelings” blocks.

You can also add a monster from one of the other starter projects.

Navigate to the first video and select a different starter project.

Add the monster to your backpack.

Then, click back to your project, and open your backpack.

Drag the new monster sprite to the sprites area.

You may need to refresh your project so the monster appears in your backpack.

In this example, the second monster is a duplicate of the first, with some changes to the code.

There are “wait” blocks added to synchronize the conversation, allowing the new character to add its comments.

Now, it’s your turn.

Add another sprite to your project.

Have the sprite interact with your monster - consider using different looks and control blocks.

Be creative!
