I've just created four DSF files, and assigning one OS domain to each. No other storyform variables were entered.

Will assigning storyform variables create additional build character patterns?

I've noticed the changes too, but i think it's to match the theme browser in terms of domains, so I can't say that these positions will change if you choose "Perception" over "Interpritation" or things like that... though I'm still fairly new at this so I could be way off base... The only thing I do notice that changes is the MC and IC crucial elements dependent on which character takes that element.

Right, these patterns match the 4 classes in the theme browser. The patterns will not be changed by other storyform choices.
