Character Generation Notes
rolling stats: 4d6 reroll ones and drop the lowest
health: full hit die for all levels
no evil alignment, no third party sources
A short backstory is preferred not required (helps me integrate your characters in the world).
You should have reason your character would have been harrowed and what they asked (harrowing will occur).
If you need help with a character background, monsterbaby and notsonoble used the following questions:
Step 1: Write five things about your character’s concept and background, five things that you think are the most essential parts of your character. You don’t have to stop at five, if you like… this is just a minimum.
Step 2: List two goals for the character that you, as a player, think would be cool to see accomplished in-game. During any session in which you take positive action to achieve that goal, I will award you an action point that can only be used in scenes furthering that goal. These Action Points are separate from the action points you gain by resting and reaching milestones. You can change goals later, though you lose all the accumulated Action Points for the goal you abandoned.
Step 3: List two secrets about your character. One is a secret the character knows, one is a secret that involves him but that he is not actually aware of yet. This will help me in creating plots that center around your character. I will also be creating a third secret which you as a player will not be aware of, so expect some surprises!
Step 4: Describe three people that are tied to the character though blood, romance or honor. Two of them are friendly to the character, one is hostile. All can do something useful for you, if you can get the situations to line up. If you like, you can include an enemy of yours here as well, so I have an instant NPC nemesis to throw at you.
Step 5: Describe three memories that your character has. They don’t have to be elaborate, but they should provide some context and flavor.
Read your answers above, then answer these questions in one sentence:
—Who are you?
—What do you want?
—Why are you here?
—Where are you going?
—Who do you serve and who do you trust?
