10 Minute Background
ackground is sometimes a hard concept for some players. Here are 5 quick steps which could be considered, as a starting point, to create a decent background.
Step 1: Write five things about your character’s concept and background. These five things should be the most essential parts of your character. You don’t have to stop at five though, it’s just a minimum.
Step 2: List two goals for the character that you, as a player, would like to see accomplished in-game during the campaign.
Step 3: List two secrets about your character. One is a secret your character knows, the other a secret he is involved with but isn’t aware of yet.
Step 4: Describe three people who are tied to the character through blood, romance, honor or plain friendship. Two of them are friendly to the character, one is hostile or unfriendly. All can do something useful for you if you can get the situation to line up.
Step 5: Describe three memories that your character has. They don’t have to be elaborate, but should provide some content and flavor.
