Weekly Wonders - Legacy Character Creation

Pass On Your Character’s Legacy!

It’s one of those ideas that every long-time roleplayer has had at least once: when their character’s time comes, and they retire to a nice quiet farm or open up a tavern, and go from being a PC to an NPC, and they have a child or three, wouldn’t it be fun to roll up your character’s child and play them in a later game? Of course, you don’t need a special character creation method in order to do so—the regular rules of the game are more than capable of handling character creation.

But what if there was a character creation method specifically designed to take advantage of this sort of situation, which used the traits of the character’s parents in order to determine the abilities and capabilities of the character? What if, through generations of careful cultivation, a player could develop strong familial traits that make for highly specialized and capable characters? Luckily, there’s no need to wonder, for this book contains just such a system.
