Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Sentinel

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

*wipes sweat from brow* Whew, political correctness is a lot of hard work. But it has to be done.

ANYWAYS, we did it - we (almost) survived 2016 which, I think we can all agree, was pretty damn terrible in many ways.

Official Character Aid Thread!

Post by Hime on Sun Dec 29, 2013 7:48 pm

Hello, everyone!

Characters are a very important aspect of every single RPG, because each one is different (or at least, we try to make them different). As much as I love creating unique characters, sometimes I get stumped in doing so. We end up doing the same things, like name and biography and personality and looks.

Wouldn't it be fun to have depth for each character you create? It's always a nice feeling to have a character you remember in each story you're a part of, and maybe I can help in getting that started. ^.^

Below is a form I found extremely helpful, and can help develop your character further beyond name. I hope it helps you guys! :]

Of course, don't use this form in regular RPGs. This is just to help people look further into the bits and pieces of the story that they create.

Enjoy!
