Quick and Dirty Character Background


Consider making a very light or non-existant background and discovering your character through role-play. This method offers more flexability during game play whereas a detailed predefined character could be "stuck in a rut". A GM can help you adapt your character to the campaign and offer some insite or a teaser, "You the only son of a high-up executive at PGC."
