Consequences-Style Background Builder (8)
Session Zero - 'Consequences-Style' Background Builder
You must have played the "Consequences" game at some point. A group of people take turns to answer a series of questions on a sheet of paper¸ without seeing the previous answers¸ and so a random narrative is generated as a result.
I've come up with my version of this for RPGs. This is it. The idea is that each PC gets a randomly generated background by using the 'Consequences' type mechanic at the table. I suppose it's not necessary for everyone to have their PC's background generated this way (but that would be more fun)¸ as long as everyone doesn't mind chipping in to help fill out the questions.
In my version¸ people get to read the answer directly above the box they are filling in¸ just to aid with the consistency of the narrative.
The idea is that the answers to the questions can be used to 'seed' a background¸ or used as is (maybe needing a bit of a narrative/tweak to weave things together i.e. to join up the dots)

I'm very happy for you to pay nothing for this product; and anything given to me will only be frittered away on RPG-related wares anyway. That said¸ even a nominal sum like 50 cents seems to bump this thing up the DriveThru charts and encourages me to make more things like this!
