PostSubject: What is your story? (Fun)   Tue Mar 09, 2010 1:26 am

You wake up one day, but you are not in bed. Instead, you wonder if you are, in fact, still dreaming. You float comfortably, staring at stone tablets with markings that look familiar. They are rune symbols. Where did you see them before? One is yellow, one is green, one is purple, and so on. They appear to be raised, you could push one into the wall they appear in front of. However, you get the feeling that it will be an indelible decision. What do you do?

You are to join Guild Wars, like it or not, and you only get one set of choices. Do you live your dream life, or consider carefully and make yourself most suited to survive? You will host a new body that is fully adapted to your choices, only your memories and experiences will be combined to bring you into your new world as the projection of life in Tyria, Cantha or Elona. Bear in mind you will eat, sleep and live as you decide, and you cannot make changes once you enter.

GREAT TOPIC, ORIAN! This was fun! I wrote this in first-person, though (of course) the details are not at all similar to my real-world self.

[Native Lands]--Native Ascalonian, but has seen much of the world.
[Job]--"Student of the World"... meaning I don't do a whole lot.
[Nobility/Class]--Lowish middle class.
[Notoriety]--Middlish, depending on who you ask.
[Alignment]--Chaotic good.

[Profession]--Depends on the situation, but tending toward Necro.
[Mastered Attribute]--Illusion Magic, but also fairly advanced in Domination. Particular interest in Death Magic as well, but not enough to say "master of" yet. Sub-novice in most others, but not afraid to pull them out. In general: jack of all trades, master of very few.
[Elite Skill]--Fevered Dreams.
[Trademark Skills]--Aneurysm. Larceny. Confusing Images. Hypochondria.
[Resistance]--Physical damage, due to my ability to draw on others' strengths and turn them against them.
[Weakness]--Hexes, elemental spells...

[Armor]--Elite Rogue Armor dyed deep purple. Just like Corin wears anyway!
[Weapon]--Really depends on the situation. Tend for two-handed staves (better for poking) but without much preference for skin. I'd use a plain twig if I could.

[Childhood]--Fell out of traditional instruction. Major falling out with parents and stuff. Etc.
[Personality]--I will say Honorable Rogue, meaning that if there are injustices being done, I'll work to fix them. Think sort of like Robin hood. Unwilling to admit when I need help.
[Skills/Traits]--Independent, yet in need of support. Good people skills. A pro at infiltrating the enemy's ranks.
[Life Story]--I grew up in the idyllic countryside of Ascalon, beginning my magic education at a fairly early age. As I entered my teens, I began to improve much more quickly than my classmates, which led to a nasty altercation with the Master who led the class. Long story short, I completely dropped out and severed ties with that school, which created problems with my parents. I left at 16, eventually finding my way to Lion's Arch, which further led me to glorious Elona and Cantha. My heart belongs in the golden fields of Ascalon, though, and I always return. For the last three years, I've lived alone, supporting myself by whatever means seem best at the time. I have run into a few unfavorable characters, though, and kicked their butt. Surprisingly. Naivety is my forte, but I always get myself out of scrapes.

I hate bios. And I don't like 'splaining the awesome idea of my character that I have in my head :/
