I’m looking for character names and descriptions. Characters should be 1st Level. Provide the character’s name, race, class, gender, and, description, most importantly, background & personality. I’m especially looking for an interesting backstory and unique personality, so keep that in mind. The campaign will be taking place in Mystara, which is an old TSR game setting. Most people aren’t too familiar with it, so I recommend using this tool to help you come up with Mystaran characters.
Submit your characters in either the comments section below, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we have some good submissions, I’ll work with you guys on fleshing out the characters we like the best, and then we can get started.
Below is an example that I copied from the Mystara message board:
Male Human Fighter
Description: Decius is of average height for a Thyatian- 5’ 11”- with a lean build. He has dark brown hair, blue eyes, and goes clean shaven. When on a mission, he wears his armor and full helm, and a purple tabard with red trim.
Background: Decius was born in 972, to a wealthy Kerendan family in the Empire of Thyatis. Coming from a strong religious tradition, Decius forswore his inheritance and took vows with the Church of Thyatis when he was 15. Rather than follow the devout teachings of the clergy, however, he chose instead to follow the more militant traditions of the paladin. In this stead, he embarked upon holy endeavors across the mainland of Thyatis.
Personality: Decius is a dedicated man, almost to the point of obsession. He firmly believes he is doing the good work of the Immortals in bringing the tenets of the Church of Thyatis to Karameikos. Even as he combats the evils of the land- undead, lycanthropes, and the like- he tries to combat the superstitious beliefs of the Traladaran people, lauding the Immortal patrons of the Church of Thyatis in their stead.
