Red Mage's class on how to be a good RPG character starts now!
|Red Mage||I think everyone should work up a unique back-ground story before the adventure starts.|
|Muffin||I kind of hoped this conversation died.|
|Red Mage||They have a million uses!|
|Red Mage||Or at least several.|
|Red Mage||You background can justify unrealistic equipment load outs.|
|Red Mage||"Where'd you get that masterwork sword?"|
Dad was the greatest swordsmith of his age!
"Okay, why's your melee skill so high?"
I trained my whole life to avenge his murder!
|Red Mage||Quicktip: Tragedy equals depth.|
|Red Mage||You can even use your background to justify crazy stuff that completely contradicts it.|
|Red Mage||"Where did you get that ancestral Dwarven full plate you can't even wear because you're goddamn human?"|
My dead master swordsmith dad was an armorer. Also a dwarf.
|Red Mage||Secrets equals depth too.|
Quicktip:Lies Disguised as secrets also equal depth.
|Muffin||Yeah, I guess I've got one of those backgrounds too.|
|Muffin||Ten thousands years ago I established the Dragoonish order to kill of the other dragons so I could tak all their power, treasure, and knowledge.|
Then I systematically killed the Dragoons so they'd never find out thier generations of work to save humanity from evil dragons benefited the most evil dragon in the world.
|Red Mage||Secrets, lies, and tragedy. The Trifecta.|
Knowledge was misspelled knowlege.
