Blood of Dragons

The 'A Song of Ice and Fire' MUSH


2.1.3. Are the characters pre-generated?

Yes and no.

All of the characters in the CDB have a certain set of details pre-determined. This always includes name and age. Most characters also have their closest family members and marital status pre-determined. It is also quite common for characters to have a position set. These are the basic details that we add in whenever we add a character to the CDB. You will be able to see all of these details by viewing the character’s family tree and by typing +cdb <name> on the game.

In addition to these basics, characters who have relations in play may have a few relations set (you can check this using +cdb/rlist <name>). Occasionally we also end up setting some notes (+cdb/nlist <name>) and events +cdb/elist <name>) on a character based on what has been going on with related characters.

However, unless a character is listed as CGed when you check them with +cdb <name>, the character has not been fully pre-generated. If a character is listed as CGed, on the other hand, it means that it has been taken through CharGen and fully setup with all the CharGen attributes as well as a complete background.
