Main Site: Character Histories

I would like to have everyone's character histories in please so that I can put them up on the main site. Please either PM them to me, or email them to:

shards.of.alesya@gmail.com

Inclued a character pic if you have one so I can be sure to get everything together. If you submitted one in the past, please resubmit it to me because it could have gotten misplaced.

You want actual character histories? I'm really confused, Christen. So explaining this to me would be cool, seeing as how I'm blonde.

I think what's she's wanting for the main site, if this was along the same ideas I had, was basically what someone asking around town would know. As in Nuk is a dark elf pain in the arse that creates cool dark tunasaurs...

I don't about Christen but my concept was basically instead of me as a new character walking into town knowing nothing, it's more like I've talked to people in the villiage and surrounding areas on my way into Haven and this is the common info I would hear about the PCs.

You can do it one of two ways...

1. Actual character biogrophy. The truth and background story of your character.

2. Like Reid said, local knowledge and rumor.

It's up to you based on how you write the thing. For myself, I wrote a real character boi for Robin and Gin, history like. However, you can do it in any format you like, I'm not going to be picky.

Does that clear things up?

I don't understand why you think we should put full character histories on the main site? Isn't that like, in game stuff, and we should be role playing to learn this about each other?

Do we really want new players walking in with all this knowledge about our characters?

The idea is that the information you send in for your Bio is things that people could find out by watching you or by talking to the villagers or other NPCs. Its common knowledge stuff. Now, Robin is a loud mouth so it would make sense that her entire character history is on the page :)

That's not what christen was asking for though, she was asking for either that or in depth personal histories. I think the personal History is not something that should be posted on the site.

If a player is willing to share their history, it can be given to Garet Maevers and put into the lore archive he maintains. It is an IG archive that the entire populace has access to. It is not a requirment.

Remember, our characters live together year round. Throughout that time, they gradually get to know each other. I'd put on the website what those of Haven would know about you, given that. Mind you, what they think they know doesn't necessarily have to be the truth.
