Sparks of Unlife Notes

Post  God on Wed Mar 16, 2016 1:38 pm

'What the hell is this?' I hear you say, with a suspicious tone in your voice. One that suggests you suspect I'm asking for a light novel.

Do not worry - I am not.

Sparks of Unlife is simply the one-stop thread for the grab-bag of details about your character which need to be fleshed out - from their Backgrounds to their hunting methods. The premise is simple: if we deal with these things now [at the start], this means less time me asking about them later. Result: more RP'ing, less fielding standard questions from me about simple things. After all, you came to play, right?

There is another, more subtle reason for Sparks: it allows you to flesh out your character. The more about your character I know about, the better I can tailor their chronicle to them.

Below I will give you a list of things which must be detailed before your character enters group play. I am not asking for a thesis; bullet points or a couple of sentences on each will be sufficient. Players who go beyond the mandatory things may be rewarded with extra XP, as well as those who keep their character's Sparks in good order [aka updating them]. However, I reward quality, not quantity. I will not be in the mood to dole out gifts if you've given me several hundred words on their wardrobe or a run-down of every book they own to wade through.

All Backgrounds
Personal Goals [Both long term and short term]
Possessions [The large or significant ones only please].
Personality [The UK is a small land. This will allow me to have NPCs comment on your PC]
Hunting Technique[s]
Hobbies/Interests [Just what does your character do when not in threads?]

As with everything else, I am willing to help you do this.
