We encourage all our players to get into their characters, and to that end we also give you the chance to write up a "Character History". This helps you to flesh out your character, and helps us with ties to your character that will allow us to run plots based on the information you give us. See the Rulebook pages 48 & 49 for more details.

Please make sure your Character History is a minimum of a single page (typed & single spaced) of information about your character. Past, present, and future. Goals are immensely important and we will ask for these to be updated yearly.

The first Page will be worth 5 CP, 4CP for the second, 3CP for the 3rd, 2CP for the 4th, and 1 CP for the 5th and any further pages up to a Maximum of 20CP.*

Thats it. So get to it! The more you give us, the more we can give back!



*Keep in mind, anyone caught uselessly filibustering will be severely flogged

If anyone wants any help writing or editing their histories, I'd be happy to help.

So for those of us that turned in a history but never got points for it, can we add and resubmit to get points now? :)

Oh, this could be a lot of fun ... but to get started is there a more detailed write up of Gnomish Society? I know they have a Capital City in the North and that it's really the only place with any substantial gnomish population since they have a tendency to migrate from place to place. But any other history or details on their culture would help in exacting the details of Timin's adventures.

Also, for us newbies in the game ... is the Character History eligible for Fast Track as well?

Yes it is fast trackable. I'm not sure if there is much about gnomes. The city is Castilion (not sure of the spelling right now)

there isnt a lot on gnomes, mainly because they blend with other cultures in order to experience and catalog new things, since they are ocd. Castillion is a human city that has the largest population of gnomes and stands a the seat of anything they could possibly call a government, it was also built by the gnomes, in fact many towns and cities have gnomish influences in their construction. there are few gnomish settlements or small towns, as they tend to want to work more directly with the other races. The only entirely gnome town i have heard of is port quarter, and thats just a small experimenting outpost.

Awesome.

So now all i have to do is double space it, change to a spacious fontnt, and set the font size to 13.

;)

We might need some general guidelines.

todd already mentioned single spaced...

though, I wonder what'd happen if I submitted it written in Wing Dings, since Dwarves can't read and write.
