Psi-punk Character Questionnaire

The character questionnaire is an optional, but very useful character creation tool. By filling out these questions about your characters, you will gain a better understanding of who they are, where they came from, where they are going, and what makes them particularly special. Players should be en- couraged to respond to as few or as many of these questions as they would like, but to try and consider each of them.

This is not meant to be a definitive list of all of the questions that can or should be asked. As usual, feel free to add, subtract, or modify the questionnaire as you see fit.
