"They're not stereotypes - nor are they cloned from a motion picture or television screen. Real heroes are unique. Even when made larger than life, they still vibrate with that last keyword: "LIFE!" Yet so often, role players fall back on stereotypes - flat, un-original, cliché characters. If characters are developed at all, it's in terms of their possessions or powers. Can someone really be defined by the car they drive or how well they throw a punch? With the Central Casting:TM character creation system, characters take on lives of their own. They gain families, friends, enemies, personalities, detailed past histories, and most importantly, - they gain motivations for life and adventuring. Complete a Central Casting history for a character and you will know where she carne from, what she's done with her life, and who she knows - both her friends and her enemies. You'll have a real character on your hands. The Central Casting system is a stand-alone network of tables, charts and roleplay guides for creating thoroughly individualized characters. By following step-by-step instructions, Game Masters and players can give life to any character. All you need is dice."
