So I know i've been here for a bit and I submitted a history allready, I would however like if someone could give me a hand with Crunch's history. I'm not exactly the creative type. The history I put together is very bland and kinda wrong with my more recent understanding of how orcs work so It needs some fixing.

Hello, I have a couple of questions regarding backstories. In the backstory, I'm going to reference events in my character's life so I was wondering if I could get a brief synopsis of any sort of calender system that you might have in-game.

I know that new characters don't come into the game knowing any existing PC's without GM permission and a good reason. However, I was wondering if the same stipulation applies to characters made at the same time as I'm going to be joining with a friend who is starting at the same time.

You can come in knowing each other if you want, as long as both of you are ok with it.

Welcome! For months, we just reference the month number (January= First Month, February= Second Month, and so on) and for the year, we use our current year minus 1000, so we are in the year 1014 PEW (Post-Essence War).

So, is this still a thing? Because I'd totally be down for typing this up if it meant CP. ;)

Yup. Char histories are still worth CP

From the beginning I know we were encouraged to create character histories, I didn't cp was involved. It's something I wanted to do but I struggle with details of the character. What he knows and what he is allowed to know.

I imagine him being Scottish and a swordsmen, kind of like Sean Connery's character from Highlander. A protector, guardian, leader, and mentor. He only has the best intend for people and the world. I kind of know where I'd like to take the character.

I'm unsure what I can say about him, where he comes from and what he brings to CARPS. I have been content to make his story the story that I have actually experienced while at CARP.

Any suggestions or general help?

Thanks,
Michael (Duncan, the swordsman)

Well, we don't have Scotsmen or a Scotland for that matter, but if you want to wear a kilt you could be a Caldonian.

Also, it's rare that I have any kind of back story for my character other than a really basic one before I've played a character for an event or two. That and it's hard to find out about the game world OOG. I've tried and because of the constant lack of information or being told 'find out in game' I've really just given up.

On this note, where can I learn more about Orcs in relation to the CARPS universe, and how PC are different than NPC (aside from being runts kicked out of the fold)?

Have you checked the Races forums? I know they were filling in a lot of the general knowledge about the races there.

Yes'm. Most of those threads are empty, including Orcs. :/

Can back stories still be submitted for extra CP? Or has the program stopped?

They can! You can submit them to carpsgame@gmail.com for extra CP. The awards can go up to 10CP now and are awarded by the GM, based more on content and not length.

Awesome. Is there a rough target amount that they are looking for?
