3. Character Creation

Post by FD Admin on Fri May 20, 2016 3:54 pm

CHARACTER CREATION



Before you're able to roleplay on Fighting Dreamers, you need to create your character and have them approved by staff. The process has been made easier by separating your character's general profile and arsenal approvals - you should keep them both in the same thread, but separated by posts. Even if your arsenal isn’t completed yet, just leave a placeholder/empty post for you to use to fill it out later.

This way, you're able to have your character's physical and biographical information reviewed and approved for roleplay, and can get to socializing with other characters more quickly. Do keep in mind that you cannot participate in any sort of combat or missions until your arsenal is approved, but you could, for example, have your character meet their peers.

When you're ready, be sure to post your applications in the proper area designated here, and follow the template provided.

Note that while you're free to spiff up the templates, you MUST include the information asked for in the template as listed, and if you opt to go for a simple application, please at least use the coding in the template as provided. Also, please keep all of the sections in the same order as listed!! This is for consistency and ease of locating information. The templates are explained in the posts below.

As your character progresses, you can request additions/edits to their biography, so don't feel restricted by what you write for their initial creation.

Keep in mind that order to start at a rank above C, you must get permission from staff, as this is usually only permitted when there's a need for higher-ranked characters, or as a reward for players that progressed a lot before their previous character's death.

--

When creating your character, you are granted a specific amount of funds to use to pick out your starting arsenal, including traits, techniques, items, and so on. Note that this is only used to determine how much you can put in your initial arsenal - if you don't max out the points you can use, they do not carry over into your account. And since you're using these funds to upgrade your traits as well as acquire equipment and techniques, use them wisely. The funds distribution is as follows (you cannot start off as S-Rank or higher, and starting at higher ranks is very rare):

Starting Funds Per Rank:
Starting Ranks:Points:
C - Rank240 Funds
B - Rank480 Funds
A - Rank720 Funds


You're not limited to techniques and equipment from the data books and are free to put custom creations in your arsenal - please read more about custom creations [url=here]here[/url](coming soon) before putting them on your application.

If you and another player/other players have related characters and they are listed, please include a link to their profile(s). This section is optional if Personality or History are completed.

Although it doesn't need to be extremely long, please be sure you're thorough (At least two or three paragraphs are expected depending on richness of the content).

Role-Play Experience: This has no effect on whether you're accepted or not and is only here so others know where you stand.
