The Chronicles of Chronology
What’s the essence of a character? You might think it’s her powers or her astonishing skills and training. But those things can change or come and go. If you want to take a snapshot of a character’s personality, background, and attitude, you need to look at her Distinctions.
Distinctions are traits with two sides. They’re catchphrases, significant personality types, and interesting backgrounds that can both help and hinder your character in her efforts. For this game, we use Distinctions to capture the essence of a character.
