What the tourist guidebook for Bisbee, AZ doesn't say.

Backstories!

Who: ALL OF YOU!
Why: SO YOU CAN SPEND THE EXPEEZ
Where: IN PM TO GOE STAFF OR IN GOE LITERARY FORUM
When: BEFORE YOU CAN SPEND THE EXPEEZ
What: A backstory of your character! Can be bullet points, outline, wall-o-text, poem, novel, or anything else you want. (note: wall-o-texts are hard to read. Line breaks are your friend!)

But things it must include are: Name! Name of your character, as they were born with/grew up with (yes, even if your character doesn't remember/use it). Also, when you were born (can totally be approximate).
How and when they were taken! By chance, deal gone bad, trickery, force, whatever (yes, even if your character doesn't remember it).
Who your keeper was. This lets us do evil, evil plots.
What your durance (time spent in Arcadia, land of the Fae) was like (yes, even if your character doesn't remember it, and they probably don't).
How and when you escaped (yes, even if your character doesn't remember it).

Things you should include: Fetch, and status of! Did you have one? Is it alive? Does your character know about it? Does it know about you?! This is optional, because you may let the status of your fetch be determined by staff. If you don't put it in, we might just make one up for you that fits (so if you don't want to have one, say so and explain why you don't have one!)

Other ideas for you to throw into your backstory:
What your life was like before you were taken.
What your life's been like since you got back.
Motivations and goals for the character now.


Also, there will be rewards of DELICIOUS EXPEEZ for awesome backstories.
