Apparently, I've been away from the game itself for a long time.
Since then a lot of things have changed...
This Delta Rising thing landed, and apparently, it is the best expansion ever, and the players love it. On top of that I see a lot of changes to crafting, duty officer stuff and even the map between planets.
I'm a tad overhwelmed, and it feels like a brand new game, not necessarily a good thing.
Now there is this Delta Recruit event and I feel like I need to create a DR to not only re-learn key parts of the game, but to take advantage of the bonuses it offers.
This brings me to a bit of a creative issue.
For some reason, I can't just 'make a character'. I can't make a random sexpot character (Chesty LaRue) or duplicate an existing character (Mr. Spork) to play this new content. I need to develop my own character with a history, ambitions and a place in the world, I need something I can build off of, and hopefully write about.
I was hoping you guys could help me brainstorm a new character to get the creative juices flowing. I need some inspiration to fire up a part of my brain that has been dormant this last year.
Can you throw out a 'one line' character summary, or point me a tool for generating characters, or offer up any other thoughts or advice on brainstorming?
