001: Character Creation
« on: September 16, 2013, 11:06:23 AM »
Character Creation

Here at Darkest Web, we have decided to go without a major application process. Instead, character bios will only be required to have minimal information filled out and have your jewels rolled.  Once this is done, your character will be sorted, and you can begin playing your character.  Although new characters will be screened, we are trusting you to create characters that are reasonable both in power level and craft skill. 

About the Character Bio Format:

We ask that use the format provided.  The first two sections of the bio has all the essential information and the bottom has been set up to give you as much creative control over how you present the rest of your thoughts about the character.  You need to just give a very basic outline of the character in this section.

About Jewels:

All players can pick their offering up to Opal for any character. After one year of activity, you may pick your offering up to Red and you are reward with 2 Gray jewels or 1 Gray and a petitioned EG/Black.  You may also request a character jewels rolled for a chance at a darker offering.  There are store items that would allow you affect your character's jewels.

About Castes:

Characters are allowed to be any single caste or a duel caste female. Triple caste females and double caste male can be made after you are active on the board for one year.  A quick note about Queens, since we are not limiting the number on the board, all players need to understand that there might not be enough characters for a Queen to have a PC court.  On the flip side, the board is focused on the various courts, so we ask that all players consider placing there characters in one of the PC courts.

About Character limits:

There are no character limits on the board, we just ask the you at least TRY to keep your characters active.  Please don’t attempt to “farm” jewels by just making characters that you are not planning on playing.  All new players are asked to only make two characters to start with.  Once those characters get involved in the plots and are posting, you may begin making other characters.

Required Bio

how to apply

  • Using the bio form below, start out by filling out the basic bio. It's up to you to decide how much to disclose, how much you want to establish to start, and how you want to organize that info within the form.
  • Use your character account to post your bio in the Characters forum (with your character's name as the thread title) and wait for your jewels to be rolled or approved (if requesting a certain jewel combo).
  • If you choose to utilize a play-by (PB), please check the listing of Face Claims so you don't accidentally duplicate a PB.
  • Fill out the areas on your character's account profile with all the information found their.  Once that is done, go forth and play!
  • The character will be looked over by one of the staff with in the week and then moved into the Accepted character forum.
  • As you get a feel for your character, you should update the bio with any important events or updates as you rp.
