Traveller backstories

This is not really about gameplay and a bit off-the-wall, but here we go...

I kinda want to make up backstories of the two Traveller lines in Adventures, since DXV said in the original Hero preview that he liked putting the storyline behind the cards. For Page/Champion I'm sort of picturing a Joan of Arc or Mulan thing where she joins the army but keeps her gender secret until achieving a high enough status, and for Peasant/Teacher I'm thinking maybe that there are charges of treason going around the soldiers and he runs away before joining the church or something.

I don't want to turn this into a book or anything, but maybe a series of one-shots, each revolving around one card/stage. Thoughts? Ideas? Bonus points if you factor the card effects into the details.

Ooh cool idea. Hermit/Madman would also be interesting. Maybe I should do this kinda thing for more cards than just the Travellers...

I've been on-and-off working on a story about how Dame Sylvia abandoned her knighthood and went Rogue….

Point iguana. Not that points really matter with a result, but still.
Igu is town or trying the hardest he ever has as scum.

I always thought it would be fun to take random game logs and write a short novelization of them. You'd get some pretty silly stuff, like "Sir Vander had to choose if he would help his enemy with his rat problem or assault his Fortress for no reason. It was not a good day for Sir Vander."

By keeping my Goons masqurading in the King's Court, I pinned my enemy down in the Copper Mines and the Cursed House.

"And so, having acquired much wealth, the king continued to gain more wealth.  It was very boring when there wasn't anything interesting to buy other than money and land."

You have no idea how high my expectations are of this.  No pressure though.
