  1. How to create interesting PC

    There's plenty of guide on how to optimize character for most damage or utility but very few on to write a background story. Playing a rogue wearing dark cloth who is an orphan is boring.

    Even orphan had parents who died for a reason, had jobs, relatives, you get adoptives parents,... but let say you do have parents, are they farmers, merchants or minor nobility.
    A son of farmers may go an adventure to get coins to help his family, he may wear the chain mail of his grandfather ...

    Even worse because of stuff like this CRAP posted by CTV News.
