So, I have played Achaea on and off for a long time (I think about 10 years). Since I went long spans of several years without playing, and since I have tended to be a serial org/class changer, I don't really remember everything my character has done in the past. Now, a lot of organizations want to know my character's history. I generally mention what I can remember, and play off my forgetfulness as disorientation from my soul being absent for so long. However, I'd like to compose a background and get more into RP, and I feel like "I have amnesia" is kind of lame and overdone.@Tecton
are records kept of character activity, such as what organizations they have been members of, and when? I know that some of the orgs I've been part of, like the old Runewardens guild and the Mojushai, don't even exist anymore, so I probably can't go back and check their records.
Have any of you older players run into this problem? How have you addressed it? If I can't conjure up the use of admin-power for assistance, I suppose it could be interesting to actually roll with the whole absence-induced amnesia thing, and make discovering his past a part of my character's motivation. The problem is, part of me feels like that's sort of lazy storytelling--but on the other hand, I don't feel like I can just make stuff up, since some of it would be at odds with my character's actual in-game history. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
