You are free to create NPCs within reason (teachers, parents, siblings, partners, ect) while writing your back stories, but if you give yourself the legendary Excalibur that you won in a game of poker, you might not get in :P

It was almost 300 years since the world ended, or so the elders say. It started with what they called the first of the superbugs... No vaccine or cure could be found to fight it. One by one, the medicines of the world seemed to stop to function, and a hundred years of medical knowledge seemed to slip out the window. Than machines started to break down... From the most complicated of supercomputers to the lowest of little gizmos that people seemed to take for granted. The large cities became death traps, as those whose skills were more suited for the office struggled to make it in this new world.
It is said that close to 6 billion people died that first year alone, and humanity itself seemed to be heading on the fast track to extinction. No one knew why this happened... Some suspected that God had abandoned the world, either through our own choices or from giving up on mankind. Governments all over the world broke down, factions split off in a desperate struggle for survival.
275 years ago was the first known occurrence of magic. While rumors say that it was someone in the middle east, it spread throughout the world like wildfire. No one was sure why some had the gift for the arcane, but these early mages were worth their weight in gold.
Fifty years later, the gods arrived into the world. At first people were sceptical of these new powers, clinging to the faith of their grandfathers. As the years stretched on, the temples of Pelor and Boccob seemed to become as easily locatable as the churches and temples of old.
It is about this time that people started to notice that humans did not the only ones on this planet. Maybe they had always been here, hiding in plain sight... Maybe they are how people mutated to adapt in this brave new world. Those who fled to the mountains were said to become what we know as dwarves, Elves to the forests, and all numbers of other variants upon the human condition.
The cities of old are little more than ruins now... Many of what had once been thriving metropolises became little more than wastelands, where little more than dangers await those who are willing to delve for treasures of the past.
The year is 238 NE, and a story of new heroes is about to begin in a little fishing community called Issaquah the end edges of Lake Sammamish... Though the original meanings might be lost unto the sands of time, the names held.
Alignment: Neutral Good
Backstory: Born the bastard son of a rich earl,and abandoned as a baby. I was raised by an elderly couple who had just lost there only son to disease. They were what one considers poor so we struggled. The husband was a blacksmith by trade, and the wife a seamstress. Thus I was forced to basically rely on my wits. In my teenage years is when I found out who my real father was. I quickly began to hate and loath him, therefore it comes as no surprise that I began to learn my trade as a rogue.
By honing these new skills at my fathers expense I was able to find friends. And make a few early contacts throughout the town where I grew up. They would contact me about some sort of shipment of goods, that was being transported to my fathers estate in the middle of the night and I would steal it. I made this kind of a ritual, and the rest of the town would benefit from it.
Around the age of 19 i began to notice a longing to be in the wilderness. At this point it was time for me to move out of the town of my youth and explore the rest of the world. One dark rainy day as I was moving through the forest seeking shelter I felt a sudden urge to change direction. A short while later I discovered a clearing where a tree had fallen and trapped a family of foxes in there den. I quickly devised a way to move the tree away from the entrance to the den, and allow the foxes there freedom. It is there that I found my calling as a ranger.
Description: He is tall and slender at 5'9" and 165lbs. His face has a constant downcast look made all the more compelling by his hazel eyes, neat and tidy. the only blemish is a jagged scar running from his left temple to his jaw. The rings in his armor look like they havn't been polished in a while, and the cloth vest hides the glint of his armor nicely. Black boots compliment his dark brown pants to a tea. but the thing that catches the eye the most is the jeweled pommels of his 2 swords that are expertly crafted. the only other thing about him that would draw your eye is the wintergreen color of his long cloak.
Personality: Some friends may call him kind, others may call him dependable. Not a bad guy to have by your side when it all goes to the nine hells in a hand basket. He is very resourceful when he needs to get out of a sticky situation. He finds it hard to trust new people. He usually tries to stay unnoticed and out of the way. He is also very modest when he does something good he doesn't like to stand on ceramony very much.
