Central Casting: Heroes of Legend
A Character Creation System -A Roleplaying aid for all Fantasy Roleplaying Systems
Until now, beginning heroes have been flat, lusterless characters with no sense of history or depth of personality. A warrior was a fighting machine, a wizard provided heavy artillery, a thief acted as a mobile lock pick, and an elf just had point ears.
With Central Casting: Heroes of Legend, characters take on lives of their own. They gain families, friends, enemies, personalities, detailed past histories, and most importantly- gain motivations for life and adventuring.
