3.0 Character Backgrounds

Character backgrounds are optional for many characters.  We use backgrounds to generate personal plot for characters at our events.  

The 3.0 setting and time-skip transition is an opportunity to tell new stories. Because of this change, we encouraging players to re-submit their character backgrounds for 3.0 if you so desire. Perhaps your old background includes characters that are no longer in play, or themes that are no longer relevant in the world. This gives you the chance to change narrative elements that are no longer relevant in the new setting.

Now is your chance to rewrite your past, to better tell the stories that interest YOU in the future.

To that end, there are couple things we ask players to keep in mind so we can generate personal plot for you.  

  • Please be brief. We receive a lot of backgrounds, and those longer than two pages will have to be condensed.

  • Stay local. The TX Chapter only has storytelling authority over the Lone Star. Characters from abroad will require approval from the chapter in that area. Keeping your character background in the Lone Star gives us more options in what we can run for your character.

  • Please keep any groups in your background as small as possible.

Name *
Some strains may require special approval of background and costuming.
Please tell us about any other player characters that are tied to your character.
Tell us about any important Supporting Characters (NPCs) in your background and their name, such as family members, best friends, or mentors.
What settlements and cities has your character visited previously? In particular, locations in the published setting.
