Character Backstories

Writing a back story can be a grueling task for those not blessed with a free-flowing pen, but it is important to establish the relationship between your character and the world-as-presented. It is in some ways a commitment to the character you will play. Thus it is written, so shall it be done. In others, it is a compact with the other players that this is the ground you have staked out, and they are safe to stake out their own ground, secure in the knowledge that they won’t be invading your domain.

Mostly, I think that a good back story gets you into the mood of the character and the campaign, and is fun for the doogan mieser and the other players to read.
