Backgrounds
Backgrounds on Eternal City work a bit differently than you may be used to from other World of Darkness games. A chronological history is not required to enter RP. Rather, the game uses a set of targeted questions to create immediate hooks and conflicts for storytelling use. This overview creates a general portrait of your character, to be fleshed out during the course of roleplay.

Optional character story-sheets explore motivations, fears, and aspirations in much greater detail. Questions explore the defining moments which shaped your character into the person they are tonight in Rome. Incentive XP is offered on a per-question basis, so you can answer as few or as many questions as you like. Story-sheets can be filled out at any time during or after approval.
