Determining Personal History
Bags and stuff

Once you've decided on which sample character you would like to use the next step is determining your character's history. Personal history shows your PC's birth and experiences. It is useful for determining your PC's personality.

The personal history has no effect on your character's abilities. It is useful for working out how your PC would act, as well as for the GM, who can bring in characters related to your PC's past.

Personal history is determined in the table to the right (below). You can choose for yourself or allow the dice to decide, it's up to you. If you choose to roll you will need to roll 3 dice.

If the first roll is 1-3 use Table A, if the dice comes up 4-6 use Table B. The results of the second and third roll will decide one of the PC's past experiences.

You can choose up to 3 events for your PC's past. If you dislike the result of a roll feel free to roll again, or simply choose a result that you like. If you wish you may also talk to your GM and create an event that does not appear on the tables.
