Hero Creation

Hero Creation
Your Name
You’ll find a nice list of names at the end of this hack, courtesy of the Story Games Name Project. Pick one that seems cool, then pick the name of your father or mother. If your parent is one of the gods, your name die will be a d8 to begin with, and you begin the game with a fate of 8.
Under ‘lineage’ of your hero sheet, put your parents name and attach -sson if your hero is a man and -dottir if your hero is a woman.
