PostSubject: Making Character applications.   Wed Feb 09, 2011 6:25 pm

I'm not going to be ridiculously harsh on this, because i know people complain when prompted to write character applications because they feel like they have to write a novel or something. This isn't the case. All you need for a character application this time is just a few short peices of information. Nothing too painful.

Character apps are being implemented to weed out stupid characters who are either unfitting or likely to cause problems. You don't have to make them immediately, but expect to be nagged untill you do if you leave it too long.

If you're specifically asked "go and make an app for this character right now please", just do it. If i see any characters i think are likely to cause problems or be stupid, then i'll ask people to do that so that if people have problems with the character, they can be debated over and changed on the forums, without the character getting too settled into the roleplay, as last RP we had problems with this sort of thing.

All a character app is going to require is:

Quote :
Name
Age
Race
Gender
Brief history/reason that they're on the planet/how they got there
Brief physical description

Personality & Skills


And a generic example:

Quote :
Name -
Ian Secondnamerson

Age -
31

Race -
Human

Gender -
Male

Brief history/reason that they're on the planet/how they got there -
Born and raised at the human colony on Varia, joined the Colonial Military as an engineer, where he served for 5 years before being involved in a friendly fire incident, which led to him and most of his squad deserting, heading out to the recently discovered region of the planet containing The Sanctum, where he and his squadmates began to work as mercenaries, hoping to make some money.

Brief physical description -
A tall, stocky man, dark hair and blue eyes, Carries an assault rifle and military-grade armor.

Personality & Skills -
Calm and relaxed, but a quick thinker. Moderately skilled with
technology and most of the vehicles commonly found on Varia, quite a
capable driver.


If you want to add a lot of detail, go ahead and write a lot. It's always nice to see long and well written character bios full of information, but it's not compulsory. You can always write a short amount to get your character accepted, then flesh it out later, providing you keep the core facts and things that matter when playing the character (physical aspects, mostly) the same.

There's two approval sections right now, I think. Just a headsup.

Well, physical description doesn't really apply to, well, equipment and psychological things. I'd suggest,

Quote :
Physical description -

Psychological description -

Equipment -

"Physical description" is anything that physically exists. As in, "physical - having substance or material existence; perceptible to the senses; "a physical manifestation"; "surrounded by tangible objects""

i can never do psychological descriptions of my characters until i've played them for a week or two so i can get their personality completely down

I just chose to have "physical description" so we can easily spot 12 foot tall indestructible synths with bones of iron and concentrated hate who are easily annoyed and likely to pk people because they're super strong and powerful and you shouldnt piss them off etc

but yeah i'll add "personality" too since that helps.
