AHE CHARACTER CREATION

CHARACTER CREATION

ORDINARY

RICH

EGESTUOUS*

CRIMINAL

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin...


A travelling circus caravan passes by an alley. The alley is located behind a hospital - all having a new born character crying its need for shaping – a child born at the turn of the century maybe, one that will enter the Mythos world of Cthulhu horror…

Who are you going to be?

 

What defines this moment is ultimately the financial background and it is at the CORE of your character – where your life has come from. Was your background as you grew up:


 

Like most of modern lives, you can generally become anything you desire with enough effort, but the paths available to you are defined by this first choice – an Egestuous person living in the gutter isn’t going to be able to get to university, and nor is a Rich person going to learn the survival street skills that they and some criminals possess. The criminal will gain attention from the law, whilst an ordinary person won’t stand out, both a blessing and a curse at times.

Each CORE life path overlaps but some have unique routes taking you to destinations that define your role in society, and more importantly, the game world.

You may have a definite character choice in mind – this can be worked out, but everyone has the same beginning opportunities. Of course, should you survive, and return, you’ll develop these skills and learn new ones…


Click each picture to get a sense of the world that each background will experience and then start sketching out your own character in the world of AHE games. Start thinking how you'd costume the level of wealth that your character has, how they'd act when confronted with something a bit more scary than a spider or, even forfend, a criminal!



PLEASE NOTE - CHARACTER GENERATION IS CURRENTLY BEING WORKED ON - BEAR WITH US - THANK YOU!






*So yes, I wanted to spell CORE and found an archaic E word to represent the poverty and outsiders of society –  at least it's not SHIELD... [too soon? Hail Hydra!]
