Numerous times I've been told that my bios are top-notch, so I'm not trying to brag. The key to creating a good bio is coming up with a detailed backstory. Yeah, it might be easy to say Bob was born in Wyoming and went to school, then he became a Starfleet officer and was put on the USS Whatever and sent to the Delta Quadrant. You've got the bones, but where's the meat? Once you've got a basic frame, you need to flesh things out a bit. Where exactly was Bob born? What was the town like? What school did he go to? Did he break his leg when he was five and did it make him want to become a doctor? Did he get in fights often making him want to be a Marine?

Little details like that make or break a character. If you need any more help, don't hesistate to ask.

Just giving this a bump to remind people its here, cause bob is right most of our histories suck

Aside from Felix's bio (cause that one I'd been planning for awhile), my histories suck. Vares' cause I was new, and Frankenfield's cause I didn't really care. I'd have improved them but as I said I don't care. Maybe if people read them....

alright, I've been letting bios slide, alot, but in two missions the site will be going through a major overhaul. There will be a roll call at that point with a BIO element to it. I am not sure exactly what the qualifications will be, but many of you will need to add onto your bio or risk removal.

look forward to it

Ok mon capitan, Have been updating my bio, and as you probably had guessed , its overly LONG.... but... have been having a lot of fun doing it, thou it is 2 years over due....

Hope you like it, as it has let me excise a few demons... next, how do I do the bio's on my NPC's ?. should I request positions and do bio's that way, or as we had previously discussed (two years ago), just go to my 'Departments' section and add bio's there (probably easier, as there are several of them).

let me know here
Jeff
