What to look for
Consider the following for each player’s character and how it relates to the locations, NPCs and story hooks you’ve created so far.
What is in the character's background?
What motivates the character to adventure?
How might the character be connected to other characters?
But be considerate!
As the DM/GM you get to build the setting, non-playable characters and the storylines. It's okay to tailor those things to your characters, but always check-in with your players before you change something about their character to make sure they are on board with your ideas.
