Creating a character

In order to play Tales out of Anchor, you will need to create a character.

The Deadline for submitting characters is Tuesday 19th of September

Choose Your Concept

Dashing skycaptains, surly dock-workers, revolutionary students, embittered Inquisitors and charismatic bureaucrats are all examples of simple character concepts, but really, your imagination is the limit - have a look at the wiki and think about what you would enjoy playing.

Link: Character Details

There's more advice on this below.

  • ALL players should fill in the character submission forms - even if you have played before. This time round, we are asking a number of different questions, but the form should guide you through the process of creating a character.

That's it!

We will email you closer to the event with event information and any briefs that you may require.


Writing Your Character Background

We are particularly interested in the answers to the following questions:

  1. What would you like change about the status quo?
  2. What will you never surrender?
  3. Where do you live; and where spend most of your waking hours? (Ref: www.firecat-masquerade.com/anchor/the_city)

We will email you to confirm we have received your character background. We will then approve your character and assign you one merit (skill), which will be emailed to you a couple of weeks before the game.

Picking your Influence

You will also be asked to select your character's Influence - their ability to gather news and get things done around the city.

You may select Influence in Bureaucracy, Church, Docks, Islanders, Nobility, Skydancers, Underworld or University.

  • You have THREE points to spend. You may put either ONE or TWO points in each Influence selected.
  • For each point, you must indicate whether your influence is KNOWING - your contacts within than group; or DOING- your leverage within it.
  • You CANNOT put all three points in the same social body.

- EXAMPLE 1: Skydancers 1 (Knowing), Church 2 (Doing)

- EXAMPLE 2: Docks 2 (Doing), Islanders 1 (Knowing).

- EXAMPLE 3: Bureaucracy 1 (Knowing), Underworld 1 (Knowing) Underworld 1 (Doing).
