Red Mage's class on how to be a good RPG character starts now!

Cast AppearingEdit



Red MageI think everyone should work up a unique back-ground story before the adventure starts.
MuffinI kind of hoped this conversation died.
Red MageThey have a million uses!
Red MageOr at least several.
Red MageYou 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 MageQuicktip: Tragedy equals depth.
Red MageYou 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 MageSecrets equals depth too.
Quicktip:Lies Disguised as secrets also equal depth.
MuffinYeah, I guess I've got one of those backgrounds too.
MuffinTen 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 MageSecrets, lies, and tragedy. The Trifecta.
