Sorry about missing a couple of weeks--other commitments, plague, pestilence, that kind of things. I'll try not to let it happen again (much). I'm going to ease back into things with a couple of easy tables of random magical items that you can base your next story around. Conveniently enough, Hex produces two American Artifacts PDFs, each with 20 items of that type. Start out by rolling a d20. ON a roll of 10 or less, roll on the table for American Artifacts. On a roll of 11 or more, roll on the table for American Artifacts 2. Once you've determined which item you'll be using, all you have to do is buy the PDF, read up on it, and figure out the storyline.
It's an awkward situation and nobody likes to admit it, but sometimes when you're making characters for a new game, you can't help but thinking to yourself "this calls for Nic Cage." The question then becomes "Which Nic Cage?" After all, Cage--like the universe itself--is infinite and ever-expanding. While we can't help you determine whether your character will be the delightfully offbeat Cage from Raising Arizona and Adaptation, the over-the-top, trying-way-to-hard wannabe badass from Con Air and Face/Off, or even the "Holy shit! When did this guy learn how to act?" Cage from movies like Leaving Las Vegas, but we can give you some random tables designed to result in some Cage-o-licious character ideas.
