Creating a Persona for FoE
When you you create your character you will use a Character Bio
Sheet. The sheet has all the things necessary to create a background
for your Character, such as: Parents, Siblings, current job, special
abilities, and Character history.
If you decide to create your own world you will fill out a Planet Bio
form. It has all of the background information you will use to create
your planet, such as: Location, Sector, major Imports, Climate, Tech
Level, Sun Type, Government, and much much more.
The forms are available here as Word Documents, Plain Text, and PDF.
Text only Character bio form and Planet bio form.
RTF formatted bio: Character bio form and Planet bio form

FoE does not use ranks or statistics, except in live actions
role-plays. We rely purely on role-play.
When creating a character, you should talk to the Division Leader of the
Division in which you are creating the character.
See the Alliance Sections
Here are somethings to keep in mind:
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
your Division leader and the Member Coordinator 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 wants 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 character.
- 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
- We also encourage originality. Don't necessarily create a character
related to the movie characters. We have enough Vaders, Skywalkers,
Solos, etc. to choke a horse. The more original the character, the more
- 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.
- 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.
- If you are creating a character that is either from or living on
another club members original world, you must have their permission
to create that persona. See the planet
bios for more information on planets in FoE.
- A good way to get ideas for your character is to read other character
bios. Visit the Persona Bio section.
- Above all else use common sense. Think "would I want to role-play
with (or against) this character?" Talk to your Division Leader! That is what
they are there for!
