Character Questionnaire

Character Questionnaire

Postby Twoey » Tue Dec 09, 2014 8:47 pm

Here is a questionnaire for you to fill out and send to CGs to start the process of making a character!


Here are a few questions to help you think about your character. If you don't know the answer on something, don't worry, that's what we're here for!

We are here to help you build well thought out characters that fit well into the setting and have substance so you can have an enjoyable time.

But enough about us, let's talk about you:

The general character questionnaire:
What's your out-of-game preferred human name?
What's an email address where we can contact you?
Are you new to Dark Prospects? Welcome!
Tell us a bit about you. Have you LARPed before? Played WOD? games? What brought you to our crazy little corner of the woods?
Is there something in particular you want us to help you with?

Ok then! Let's talk about your character..

Can you give us a few sentences about your character?

What's your character's name?
What faction/camp, if any, is your character going to part of?
What happened during your character's non-supernatural life?
What about your character's family; What non-supernatural things shaped their background?
What was your childhood like?
Does your character have any particular status or rank? How was it earned?
What is the driving desire behind your character's actions? (e.g. love, power, helping others, etc.)
What is your character's greatest fear or weakness? (e.g. enclosed spaces, alcoholism, death, etc.)
How knowledgeable is your character about the world around them? How did they learn?
Will you be taking any Merits or Flaws?
How are you justifying them?

If you have a background story, we'd love to hear it!

Please send us your sheet! CGs have to okay your sheets, and determine with you how much of it is seen by the STs!

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Is there anything we can do to help make this process easier?

If you are building a restricted concept, please check the current restricted cost list: https://darkprospects.endogaming.net/Ch ... restricted to determine if you can afford to, or want to pay the restricted cost for that concept.

As a note on linked pairs - these characters have linked XP, but should not be linked concepts. The idea behind linked pairs is not to have two related characters, but to have a second character you can play who can make the town feel a bit more rich, and receives some free experience.
