Character Creation

3rd, draw an event for your backstory:

On a previous adventure you found a magical treasure unique to you. Bards croon about your adventures and your use of this item (subject to DM approval).

On a previous adventure you stumbled upon a man who taught you an ancient skill in magic. Bards tell tales about your mysterious 2/day power (subject to DM approval).

On a previous adventure you rescued a damsel in distress whose father awarded you a title that carries special favor. Bards discus your valor and subsequent political clout.

On a previous adventure you were pushed to your limits and to survive you learned quickly on your feet. Bards pray to one day achieve such feats (2 additional feats you meet requirements for).

On a previous adventure you drank of a magic elixir and good things just seem to happen to you. Bards cry from their jail cells for the Gods to give them such luck (Things tend to just “work out” and you can re-roll a failed roll 1/day).


4th, draw and help craft the back story for another player:

One player at the table grew up in the same village as you. Who was it and what was growing up together like?

One player at the table saved your life. Who was it and what were the circumstances?

One player at the table betrayed you. Who was it and why are they still in your life?

One player at the table owes you a great deal of gold. Who is it and why are they so deep in debt?

One player at the table has told you about their wavering faith in their Deity. Who is it and what shook their faith?


Lastly, draw and collaboratively intertwine your backstory with another character:

You and one player at the table share a secret that only the two of you (and the GM) know. Decide together what that secret is.

You and one player at the table share romantic feelings for each other or for another character/npc. Decide together the nature of your relationship.

You and one player at the table share a quest for a McGuffin. Decide together what the item is and why both of you want it to the exclusion of the other.

You and one player at the table share a nemesis. Create that NPC together with a backstory involving both of you and give it to the DM.

You and one player at the table share a mentor. Create that NPC together with a backstory involving both of you and give it to the DM.
