A Suitable Background?
« on: May 22, 2018, 07:25:15 PM »
I'm coming back to activity after being off Armageddon for a year, and I want to try and make this my best character ever. Starting with a good description (I've done that) and now I'm trying to come up with a good background.

I was wondering, is it acceptable to write in that my character is the child of some nebulous character that has a shop in a city or something like that?
All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
Trying to find, trying to find where I've been.

You can write almost anything really, you could write up that your character is the child of a successful merchant who owns a shop somewhere, but you will also need to come up with some small reason why you dont have their money etc.

It's my understanding that being the child of an in game NPC *must* be approved by staff FIRST.

Alluding to a vNPC is entirely up to the roleplayer.
I'm taking an indeterminate break from Armageddon for the foreseeable future and thereby am not available for mudsex.

Its perfectly alright to say that your father used to own a small stand in the bazaar, or that your family has always sold pottery on the street, etc.

Just remember that there may need to be a justify, as Hauwke said, why you don't have access to their money, or why people can't just go for a round in the Bazaar and not see your family.
