Character Application

Post by Sherlock on Wed Aug 10, 2011 12:42 pm

Once you are finished your application, you may post it in this board with your character's name in the topic title (do not include middle names. Initials and titles such as "lieutenant" or "lady" are permissible). We ask that you do not post an unfinished application, this is to avoid clutter. Your application will likely be reviewed within twenty four hours by at least two staff members. If not, it should take no longer than two to three days to be reviewed. Once reviewed, you may receive private messages informing you that you will have to make edits, if not then you will be approved.

There is no word count requirement, we don’t expect you to write a novel. You should be able to decide if the information given is sufficient amount of detail for your character. What we do look for in an application is:

  • Does your character fit into the game and the setting/time period of the site?
  • Is the information provided of the character consistent, well-rounded, and realistic?
You are allowed to make edits or add new events and relationships into your character’s profile, but you must PM an admin to do so.

    Current Character Restrictions: N/A, but keep the Character Rules and Character Creation in mind!
    Needed Characters: N/A, we need all types.
If you have any questions, feel free to send a private message in the way of a staff member.

By creating an application, it means that you have both read and agreed to the rules of the game.

Player Information
Username: (What would you like to be called on here?)
How did you find out about Backwinded?
Other characters:

Character Information
Full Name:
Nicknames:
Age:
Sex:
Place of Birth: (You may include their date of birth as well.)
Social Class: (Nobility, gentry, military, middle class, working class, etc.)
Occupation: (Your character’s social class and gender will determine if they have a job and what. Does your character work on land or at sea?)

Family:

(Descriptions of family members and their date of birth are not needed but if you wish to include, you may. Just list the family member and their relationship to the character.)

Background:

(No “unknown” histories, the history of your character is important. It’s what shaped and developed your character into who they are today and you need to show that.)

Personality:

(Tell us about your character’s general behaviour, their hopes and dreams, their fears, their ambitions, their insecurities, their flaws. Like stated in the rules, no one is perfect just like in real life.)

Strengths and Weaknesses:

(What are they talented at and what hinders them from achieving things? Make sure that the weaknesses are actual weaknesses.)

Physical Appearance:

(Remember, not every character can be attractive or a Hollywood star! Attraction is subjective, what may not be attractive to one individual may be for the next. Try to keep this section realistic.)

(You may include an image of your character as well as their PB underneath the description of their appearance.)

Additional Information: (Anything else about your character you would like to include? Secrets?)

Writing Sample:

(Write as you usually do and use a role-play sample of how you will RP this character. Please, do not use an RP Sample from another character or site.)
