Tell Us About Yourself
Name: *clears throat and glares*
Paul and I’m not telling you my last name so don’t ask.
Do you have a moral code? If so what is it?
Morality? With the things I’ve done, sweetheart, there aren’t enough hours in the day to answer that question.
Do you like animals? Do you have any pets/animal companions?
No. Humans are hard enough to be around.
Do you have a family? Tell us about them.
*frowns and looks at the floor*
….I used to. They…They’re not…look, forget it, all right? Next question.
Do you have any phobias?
Yeah. Being killed. That’s a huge phobia of mine.
Tell Us About Your World
Please give us a little information about the world in which you live.
It’s dark, it’s mean and if you’re lucky, you won’t get shot.
Do you travel in the course of your adventures? If so where?
Wherever my list takes me, which is pretty much anywhere in the US. Nothing outside the country—makes it harder to get around.
Does your world have magic? If so how is it viewed in your world?
Magic? Does coming back from the dead count?
What form of politics is dominant in your world? (Democracy, Theocracy, Meritocracy, Monarchy, Kakistocracy etc.)
Dictatorship, through and through. There’s no such thing as thinking for yourself—that’s one of the most dangerous things you can do.
Does your world have any supernatural/mystical beings? Please tell us about some.
*fidgets and looks over his shoulder*
*sweat pops up over his forehead*
I used to think there was no such thing…but I was wrong.
