  • Tips


    • Spell check, use paragraphs, and edit. The point of you writing a history is to get plot's attention. Reading 6 pages worth of solid, unformatted, wall of text will not impress the plot team, and won't make them want to write personal plot for you.
    • Please try not to write your history in the 1st person, or from the perspective of another person. We can't tell what's lies from truth when this is done. Keep them short and factual.
  • Copy and paste your character history into the above text field if it's just few paragraphs or upload your word document using the upload button below.
