Character Background Ties Thread


Im starting this because I feel like there's going to be a need for it- and I figured its worth a shot. I am usually not much for manufactured relationships but this kind of game seems to favor it because it only plays once a month and new players could have a tough time doing it strictly in the course of play on weekends-and not everyone knows how or wants to do between-game roleplay.

So, heres the deal: Have an opportunity in your background for people to tie into? Could be anything. Put your name, your character name, and your contact information in a response to this thread with a short explanation of the kind of relationships/opportunities you can offer, or the kind of history that might work with yours or region of origin- or whatever you need to say to give someone an idea and then be open to other players contacting you and seeing if you can make some kind of background tie happen. Don't post secrets, just give enough teaser to flavor what you are offering/looking for.

Likewise, new players or people looking for background ties, take a look at what gets posted and privately contact the poster if you see something that interests you. Noone is obligated to do ties with anyone if the fit dosnt seem right, but ya should go in with an open mind as in general, the point is to break down some of the ooc barriers that can happen as a game grows by creating chances for additional interpersonal depth and getting new players/characters an option to get more involved more directly.

In my background I have opportunities for family members and childhood freinds in a variety of different capacities. Also for rivals/frenemies with advanced/polite pvp potential on a limited basis.
Best match (but not strictly limited to) would be with average commoner Wylderkin, Human and Sarr players out of central Acarthia (Tiatar, Rivervale, Warchester regions)

Additional particular opportunities for people looking to play wylderkin in the general category of classic European/american game critters. Deer/elk/that kinda thing, boar, rabbit, wild sheep, pheasant- that kinda thing.

There are numerous options for childhood friends, clan-mates, and acquaintances for Sarr from the Seven Hills. For those that aren't Sarr, the best options are folks more traveled than an average commoner, primarily from the northern areas of the world. I am fairly open with connecting myself to those who want to, just bother me with messages!
