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

The new character needs to be a 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.

Monster Noise
