Creating a Player Character

You will begin the game detained by the Citadel Guard. How did you get there? Are you a nomadic outsider to the Citadel, rescued from beyond the walls? A member of the Citadel’s criminal underworld? A disgraced member of the political classes, on trumped-up charges? Perhaps you were brawling in the streets, are being kept for your own protection, or were caught somewhere you weren’t supposed to be.

Your character will have Traits, Keys and Secrets. See those pages for some examples, or pitch them to Matt when creating your character.

Most people have traditional pre-Ruin (what we would call mid-20th-century) English names, or names drawing on Greek mythology.
