Character Creation (World of Tyrus Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
Take some time to learn about the world of Tyrus and the conflicts the different races and classes have with each other. If you have a question about these conflicts, ask your DM. If you do this you will be able to to construct a character that will have a legitimate reason to be working with people in your party who may hold conflicting backgrounds and ideals.
When creating your characters, you should understand what type of characters that the DM wants in his game. This will help the DM get the genre and feel that he wants to present in the game. You will also create a character appropriate to the game before you.
D&D is an action oriented game. Your character will face a myriad of dangers. Your character must be willing to face those dangers. It is up to you to find that motivation for your character.
Focus on the Party
Your character wants to cooperate with others to achieve their goals. Team-oriented characters are the cornerstone of a party. If there is already a druid in the party, create a different character. Unless your druid is going to be significantly different, or there is some in character reason, you should try to avoid having two similar characters.
Some back story is good for the character. Too much back story leaves your character nowhere to grow. The best back story is one that helps define your character, but still leaves you room to innovate.
