As roleplaying points are now given to newly created characters, skill, attribute adjustments will not typically be made (in 95% of cases) on submitted backgrounds.

Backgrounds are and always have been optional and was put in place not for the purpose of gaining extra attributes/skills (which is what it seems to have become) but rather to confirm that your character will fit with the mythos.

We would like to go back to this concept. Backgrounds will be required for those requiring out of the norm characters, see help background for more information on this. But otherwise, it remains entirely optional and to be used predominantly to confirm that it fits in with the games mythos.

One thing we will look at (as it is not something you can directly spend rpp on) is jobs, if you wish to start your character in a particular role, and the appropriate wage set, you will need to contact us about this.

BACKGROUND HELP FILE

You will have been given some RPP (roleplaying points) to spend on your
attributes and skills which you will be able to use to customise your
character.

You may, in addition to this, submit a background story detailing things
like your characters history, personality, skills weaknesses and any other
information you feel may be useful to ensure that the character fits in
with the mythos of Shadow Siege. Submitting a background will NOT give
you any extras by way of skills or attributes.

Backgrounds are typically actioned between 24-48 hours and you will receive
an email confirming whether it is approved, or whether adjustments need to
be made.

Be aware that if your character differs significantly from the 'norm' it is
compulsory for a background story to be submitted and approved prior to the
character entering roleplay. For example, the following things would need
a background submitted and approved prior to playing (some of these may also
have an additional roleplay point cost).:

- a noble character
- a non-human race
- a character with multiple personalities
- a well-known hero/heroine
- a character with prior experience or knowledge of the darkness/demons
- an atheist

Things that will automatically get turned down:

- characters from other worlds
- characters who do not fit into our mythos (ie, dwarf)
- "super" characters (characters who are good at everything)

You can submit the background via the form on the website or direct by email to:
mina@shadowsiege.com
