Creating a Persona for FoE
You don't have to create a character or role-play in order to be a member
of FoE. We love to have fans of all kinds in on the fun with us.
When you join FoE, you will be sent, among other things, a Persona Bio
Sheet. This is what you will use to create your character for FoE. The
sheet has all the things necessary to create a background for your
Character, such as: Parents, Siblings, current job, special abilities, and
FoE does not
use ranks or statistics, except in live actions role-plays. We rely purely on
We recommend that you talk to talk to the New Member coordinator and
division leader of the division you are considering creating a
character for to get a feel for the club
When you do decide to create a character here are
somethings to keep in mind:
Here is a Sample Bio
- It is important that you do not come into the club with an
inflexible character concept. Our version of the Star Wars universe
has varied somewhat from the movies and more recent books etc. You
should talk the New Member Coordinator, the division leaders and
some other members about the kind of character you want to create.
There may be things we've established in our universe which would
make your character out of place. There are also limitations on the
initial power your character could have. Obviously you most likely
won't be able to come into the club as a Grand Admiral in the
Imperial Navy, you have to work your way up. And there may be
something in your history that might not work. For example, you
might want to be the only survivor from Alderaan, besides Princess
Leia, but the club already has several other survivors from Alderaan
(in fact we are beginning to wonder if there was anyone on the planet
when it was destroyed). So don't come in with your character concept
locked in, be ready to be flexible.
- Be creative!
- Don't make your character too powerful. No one want's to
role-play with a god, or with someone immune to blaster fire, or
someone who can teleport anywhere they want. It just is no fun for
others, and they won't want to role-play with that kind of
- Force Users are ok, but we do have quite a few of them. We
encourage non force users, just because there can't be that many in
the galaxy, but if you want to be someone who has the use of the
Force, that's fine. You will probably not, however, be able to come
in as a fully trained Jedi or Sith unless you can come up with a
really good explanation in your background. Once you join the club
there will be personas around who will be more than happy to train
you in the use of your "gift".
- We also encourage originality. Don't necessarily create a
character related to the move characters. We have enough Vaders,
Skywalkers, Solos, etc. to choke a horse. The more original the
character, the more interesting.
- A person must be a member of the club for three years before they can
petition the Galactic Council to play a movie or book persona.
- You can have more than one persona. If you want to have a
persona in both the Imperial and Rebel divisions, that's ok. But
remember, if you do have more than one character, one doesn't
automatically know what the other one does. We recommend waiting
before you decide to create more than one persona, to get a feel for
the club and get used to how we play.
- You aren't locked into your character. If you create a character
and play them for a while, and they just aren't working out, get rid
of 'em. Give them a fiery death scene or just make them disappear.
You probably shouldn't get rid of your character every 6 months and
start a new one, but if you're not happy you can always change.
- Don't be afraid to be creative. Besides the things mentioned
above, almost anything goes. Fell free to make up a home world for
your character. The galaxy is a big place, with a lot of planets,
there is sure to be one to fit you. Also don't be afraid to make a
character from a strange background, or culture.
- A good way to
get ideas for your character is to read the Club's Persona Bio Books
(detailed in Club Publications). They list all the personas in the
- Above all else use common sense. Think "would I want to
role-play with (or against) this character?". Talk to the New
Member Coordinator and the Division leaders! That is what they are
On to New member helpers,
or back to In-Character Divisions
