A Brief History of County Siogal By: Dozus

'I fear, dear Marius, that either you or I have been led astray. The Legends of which you spoke claimed Showgull was a land of great Magick, perhaps even the very Wellspring of the first Magick, with a People whose blood runs with æthereal power. You know how serious I take my work, Marius: is this a jest to you? These are a barbarous People, who know little Writing and fewer Manners. They are hostile to the very Idea learned Magick. That anyone should call this a Nexus of magickal power is risible. No wonder so many Kingdoms have been eager to trade off this Place in their treaties.'

- the wizard Abelard Selanius, Esq., letter to his colleague Marius Dubesque

Options for expanded character backgrounds By: Clemmensen

Below you will find 8 options to make your character more interesting and detailed. Personally I would recommend using all options at the same time, since they are easy to implement and they provide interesting story tools for your character, by creating keywords for him/her/it and rewards you for acting out the personality and background of your character.

These options can be chosen individually, but some of them work better when combined. By including them all you will see, that they compliment each other, since each option covers different aspects of your character.
