These are the questions the PCs have to answer.
1. Are you from Chicago originally? If not, where are you from and why are you here?
2. When did you Awaken? What was it like? What do you take to be the principal lesson of your Awakening?
3. How did you come into the Pentacle’s fold?
4. Why did you join your current order, and how do you feel about the others?
5. What (or who) do you most miss about your former life, and what do you most enjoy about being Awakened?
6. What ties to your former life do you still have?
6. What kind of a relationship do you have with your direct superior?
7. What is your driving ambition or goal? If everything goes right for you, what do you imagine awaits you in the future?
1. What’s your favorite song?
2. What’s your favorite movie or book?
3. Who’s your hero?
Finally, tell me three things you want to see, do, or accomplish in the game. You can be as vague as “ghosts” or as specific as “a crotchety archwizard who behaves like a transplanted Dungeons & Dragons character”. Or be goal- rather than object-oriented, like “I want a situation to arise that will get my character to react in this way” or “I want someone or something else to respond to me in this way”. But I need three from everyone!
