Character Creation

Post by Sherlock on Sun Aug 14, 2011 2:18 pm

The purpose of the Character Creation Guide is to help members adapt their characters to the environment and the setting of the game. Backwinded is a partially a story-driven game where all actions made by characters in one way or another help shape and advance the storyline and members can participate in and contribute to the plot with their own ideas and plots.

Important Character-related Links:
1. Canon Characters
2. Wanted Characters/Needed Positions
3. Adoptable Characters

Making Your Characters
It is highly recommended that your first character in situated at sea,

Naming your characters:









Common Character Types to Avoid:
These are common characters that occur in roleplaying games but the following apply specifically to what is more likely to be found on Backwinded:

  • Main Character Syndrom: The mother of all annoying character types
  • The Lone Wolf: I have noticed that people in general have a tendency of making characters who are "new" to the setting of the site (usually fantasy), are completely unconnected from other characters, or have no impact over the plot. I've done this before, too. There's nothing wrong with this character type given that the player understands that due to their character's position, they may not get threads.
  • The Sex Monster:
  • Sick Princess:
  • Emo Harry:
