Zeitgeist: the Gears of Revolution
Now I’m not going to copy completely everything you can read in the Players Guide because that’s silly. You can just go and read it here: http://www.enworld.org/forum/rpgdownloads.php?do=download&downloadid=1018.
Now that we have that out of the way, when designing your character keep in mind what your background and history is. What character theme are you choosing? Your theme should directly relate to your background.
Lastly, pick two districts in Flint and create two NPC’s that will be your contacts. They could be a friend or family member, criminal informant, ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, a merchant whose shop you frequent, a minor noble who owes you a favor, a religious figure, your fey pepper dealer, or many other options. These NPCs help connect the PCs to the city, and will come in handy as they investigate a murder mystery and other threats.
