Create Your Character

After you have registered, you will receive a copy of the Rulebook, which will help you select your Character’s special skills and zombie weapons. You can then create your own personalized history. This history, if submitted at least six weeks before an event, may be considered when our plot writers create the plots for our individual campers. Please note that we do reserve the right to use your Character history, story ideas, and rule suggestions for plot and game purposes at our camp.

Remember that some of the best sources of ideas are stories about World Mythology, History and Literature. Since our plot writers base all of our creatures and many of our artifacts on actual references in history, literature and mythology, you should consider the folklore and history of various cultures instead of making up creatures or artifacts in your history.


Here is a list of questions to consider when writing your Character’s history:

  • Where did you come from?
  • What is your family or cultural lineage?
  • Are you looking for something or someone from your past? Are they looking for you?
  • What is your code or your symbol?
  • Are you a wandering Defender on a mission?
  • What are your Character’s goals? What motivates you?

To submit your character history, fill out the form below:

Character History Form

  • You can choose to play yourself as a visitor from modern day to Sidleterra… or a character born in a remote land of Sidleterra. Middle names can be added in the First Name space.
  • This is the email where we should direct any questions we have about your history. Only provide your personal email if you have your parent’s permission.
    If you haven’t been to our camp before and you are local to us, please visit the Guard Up facility in Burlington, MA to try a free adventure night.
  • If so, what’s your friend’s real name (first and last) and character name (if you know it).
  • The realm of Sidleterra pulls characters from history, literature, screenplay, or mythology that existed 50 or more years ago. Choose any point in history from before 1966 (be sure to tell us which country and when) or any character from literature from before 1966 (doesn’t need to be the main character or even a character specifically mentioned) or a character from mythology (any world mythology – not just Greek or Roman) that you represent. The more details the better!
  • What was your life like before you came to Sidleterra? Tell us about your friends – and your enemies. Any mysteries or secrets about your past?
  • Is your character on a quest to find something or someone? What is important to you or your character?
  • Do you want to be a fighter? or a mage? Perhaps a woodland ranger… or a great healer?
  • These pertain to your real abilities as a person, not a characer. Example: Do you know how to play an instrument? Do you know a lot about a certain subject? Do you speak another language? Can you juggle? etc.
  • Write here what doesn’t fit above.
