Unlike Fantasy genre roleplaying¸ Science Fiction games have studiously depended upon character backgrounds to give their heroes skills and professions. Yet like their fantasy brethren¸ SF adventurers are usually nothing more than two-legged weapon platforms or the under-utilized organic parts of 50 ton battle machines. Sure¸ they served with the space marines¸ picked up a few skills and a gigawatt microdoom blaster¸ but theyre still just a bunch of lifeless statistics-nothing but flat¸ lusterless characters no different from a hundred other ex-space marines. With Central Casting: Heroes for Tomorrow¸ 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. Central Casting is a detailed¸ stand-alone system of tables¸ charts¸ and role-play guidelines for creating thoroughly individualized role-play characters. By following simple¸ step-by-step instructions¸ both game masters and players can give life to player and non-player characters alike!
