The most well-worn cliché in the world of fantasy roleplaying games is probably “My parents were killed by orcs.” In theory, it sounds like an interesting character background; In practice, it’s usually an excuse used by players who want to ignore any possible familial relations of their character and erase any connection to her past.

Here are three suggestions for motivations for a character who seems to lack a past. These are the reasons she goes out adventuring, providing a possible basis for later complications in her story. There’s no need to actually use orcs as the village-destroyers - the following motivations can be used as an interesting dramatic basis for any character background that starts with “something big came and erased my history”.


The Three Suggestions... series is meant to give players and GMs some interesting and roleplay-provoking ideas, for use in all sorts of settings. Each set of suggestions is also accompanied by a new or variant rule, for use in either Fifth Edition or Dungeon World.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
