Characters are an essential part of role playing. They are the very base of everything that happens. But when there are such important things, there must be regulations.

Character CreationEdit

To create a character, one must go to the guide, and follow the instructions on the page. Then go to Forum:Orientation. Make sure to sign the forum. An member of the Administration team will look at the forum, and tell you if your character is okay. ALL characters MUST be at least 16 years of age.

General RulesEdit

  • Multiple characters may be made for one user, but he/she has to be able to handle all of them. Even if you are a high enough level to have multiple characters (see here for how user levels work), that doesn't mean you have to have the maximum amount of characters allowed, if you don't have time to role play them.
  • Characters should be reasonably named. Simply, names may not be rude, and they have to follow common sense (For example, dfjldhfgrupqzs is not an appropriate name). They should also not be named after characters from well known media sources, such as Harry Potter or Bruce Wayne.
  • Your character must be of your own original creation. You can not steal ideas from other media. (Other media includes films, TV shows, manga, anime, cartoons, books and/or comics.) You also cannot steal ideas from other users. The history of your character should be as unique to you as possible.This however does not pertain to species in general. If you have come up with a new idea for a character class, although the the rpg site should in general adhere to the basic principles of how the new character class works, that doesn't mean others can't also have a character of that class. For instance, using Harry Potter is a blatant rip off from J.K. Rowling, but the idea of wizards in general was not hers, is not owned by her, and can be used by anyone.
  • After two weeks of user inactivity characters are at severe risk of demotion, displacement, or deletion. Administrators reserve the right to implement any of the prior punishments if deemed necessary.
  • Upon creating an account at this wiki a user automatically receives a slot in which to create a character. From there they receive additional slots according to their user levels. As stated above characters must be maintained and remain somewhat active. Administrators reserve the right to disallow additional creation of characters.
    • Creation of minor characters may start at any level, however, abusing the privilege of being allowed any number of minor characters will not be tolerated, you should still have some level of ability and time to role play any and all characters you have, including minor ones.

Character Page StandardsEdit

  • Template:My Character should be at the top of every character page. This makes it easier for people to know what user controls what character.
  • Template:Character Infobox can be used on character pages. It is not required, but it is recommended.
  • Character pages must be properly categorized. Here are the categories required:
    • Category:Characters
    • The species of the character (Category:Investigators for investigators).
    • Optional categories also include nationality, male/female, birth year, etc.
  • Character pages should be substantially more then a photo, name and sentence. They need to have actual bio/history/facts about the character, if you receive a notice that your page is too short or needs to be improved in some way, and do not do so by 5 days following the request, the character will be put on lock down, until the problem is corrected, if it has not been fixed after 14 days, the user will receive a warning.
  • Your bio and history also needs to be within reason, as this is a role play wiki and not a fan fiction wiki, these characters are interacting with each other. Characters should not be OP. There should also be some level of realism to your bios.

Un-Oriented CharactersEdit

It is required characters be oriented with the Orientation forum. If a character is made without being oriented, the creator will be notified with Template:Claim Warning. The page will be deleted. The user will have the option of making an Orientation request. If he/she does then the page will be un-deleted.
