One thing that makes Ars Magica unique and interesting is that all of the players can make suggestions for all of the characters, because during the course of a Saga, it is possible for all players to play all of the characters. Ars Magica is after all a Storytelling game, rather than a regular role-playing game.

This Saga is still at its planning stages; collating notes and ideas, collecting players and developing characters.

“Nothing is more important to role-playing than character development. If you slowly develop your character over the course of the Saga, your alter-ego becomes alive with personality and vigor, as does your roleplaying. Don’t worry about accounting for every aspect of a characters personality from the very start; rely on the events of the Saga to flesh out the bare bones. When creating a character you should decide on some goal to pursue, passions to reveal, and dreams to fulfill. Answering these questions contributes to the development of the Saga.”

When copy/pasting a CharacterSheet into a Character Page, please use the top section (Description, crunch) for the copy/paste and the bottom section (Biography, fluff) for original concept, outline, notes and ideas. One thing always useful for characters is to write a paragraph each for Background, Motivation, Personality, Description.
