Writing a three to four page background seems like a lot of trouble to play a game. Backgrounds information will be based on a simple Question and Answer system. We want players to feel like creating a character is not too difficult or time consuming. No player should feel like giving up on the game because they've lost a Character.
Please try to flesh out the questions a bit, but how deep or creative you want to get is up to you. Background information is not too important, but having a direction to which you want your character to go is, in our opinion, more important.
Whether you build the answers around your sheet, or the sheet around the answers doesn't matter. All we ask is that you try and flesh out the answer.
While the questions above might not be the exact questions for the background that we'll open the game with you want to may want think about these to help develop your character.
