The Hall of Characters

In a roleplaying game, many elements combine to create a good story and an enjoyable game session. A lot can be said for a good plot, the right atmosphere setting and props. But eventually, what makes or breaks a game are the characters.
In the following articles, I intend to present some characters and the circumstances that have brought them in to being. Many of these characters can be used as is, but they are mainly intended to be used for inspiration.
If you have any comments, suggestions or requests, I’d be delighted to hear them. Just drop me an e-mail
