Meet The Locals: Premade Characters for Stars Fall Up

Hi All,

BLP had an amazing time running our game Stars Fall Up with folks who attended Jiffycon this past weekend! A huge thanks to all who showed up and hung out with us. Seeing people be excited about the game makes us 1020% more excited about it as well, and personally speaking, it makes me want to keep making supplements for the game.

So here’s our first offering. Below you’ll find six pre-generated character that we used at Jiffycon for our SFU session. They’re totally free to use and remix however you feel like, so go nuts. The character templates are purposely vague to allow for a great amount of customization from players, while not having to fret over coming up ideas for backgrounds and #tags.

An important note: These characters’ Relationships are all connected to each other. It works perfectly if you’re planning on using all six characters in a single game, but otherwise you should disregard those Hearts and re-do them to fit whatever Pilot City you’re going to plop them down in.

Enjoy! And please remember, we  want to hear from you about your gaming experiences with SFU! So leave us comments on our facebook page, twitter, or even email us directly (emails can be found on our Contributor profile pages).
