Wanted: Dead or Alive – Assignment Bank – Week 7

For this week’s DS106 Assignment Bank assignment, I chose to create a Wanted Poster in the style of the Wild, Wild, West. My chosen story theme is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Each MBTI type has their own strengths and weaknesses. I chose the Robinhood (ESTP) character because he is a thief, but with good intentions. A classic ESTP, Robinhood is…

Police Call – Stolen Car! – Week 1
