A. OOC INFORMATION
1a. Who are you? What is your name or online alias, and what is your age?
2a. Have you roleplayed before, and if so, who and where? If you're new, how'd you find us? If you play here or previously played here, please list all of your current or most recent characters. If you're requesting a 7th or 8th character slot, say so here.
3a. Do you need a wiki account? If so, give us a login name (that is not itself a character name) and an e-mail address to associate with it. If you already have one and want one to preserve a secret alt, specify as much.
B. CHARACTER SUMMARY
Your Profile, Advantages, and Disadvantages (Flaws) are your face on the MUSH. They tell people who you are, what you can do, and what you stumble at. Please remove all examples before submitting the application form. (For example --> Name: Your character's name. 18 character limit, no special letters. <-- should simply read --> Name: Link)
Name: Your character's name. 18 character limit.
Faction: See News Factions for details. Concord, Paladins, Watch, Unaffiliated.
Function: What your character does, or a title. Like 'Demon Hunter' or 'Gundam Pilot'. Can be silly or serious.
Series: Your character's series and themelisting number. For example, Pokemon-6, Star Wars-1, etc.
Quote: Something your character HAS said, or which they might say.
Profile: A general summary of your character, incorporating elements of personality, history, advantages, and disadvantages. Should be brief.
2b. Character Type: What kind of character are you applying for? Categories are FCs (Canon Characters), OFCs (AU takes on canon characters), and OCs (Original Characters).
This section is divided into three categories: DEFINING, SIGNIFICANT and MINOR. To see how to fill out Advantages, read: http://multiversemush.com/mw/index.php?title=Advantages
3b-1. Advantages: Defining
3b-2. Advantages: Significant
3b-3. Advantages: Minor
This is split into three sections: TROUBLE, SIGNIFICANT and MINOR. To see how to fill out Disadvantages, read: http://multiversemush.com/mw/index.php?title=Disadvantages
4b-1. Disadvantages: Trouble
4b-2. Disadvantages: Significant
4b-3. Disadvantages: Minor
If a +themelisting does not already exist for your character, you will have to write one yourself. This should be a concise description of the setting from which the character comes, and if it is a modified/non-canon theme it should usually explain how it diverges from the original. Additionally, we'd be interested in knowing if there are any series -- preferably but not necessarily existing in our standing +themelists -- that you'd be interested in seeing your theme mixing with as neighbors in the Multiverse.
C. CHARACTER INFORMATION
This section describes your character in terms of their personality, motivations, quirks, fears and aspirations. Give us a good idea of why your character is invested in the Multiverse, how they get themselves into RP, and why they’re fun to play with. Each section must be answered in 100 words or more, ideally less than 400. If in need of inspiration, take a look at Nathan Hall's personality guide.
1c-1. Response to the Multiverse
If you are applying for an FC: How has the Multiverse changed your character or challenged them in new and different ways? If they’re totally new to the Multiverse at the point of application, how do you expect them to react to the reality of new environments and challenges, and how do you think it will change them?
If you are applying for an OC: What do you feel is the driving force behind the character that would bring them out into the Multiverse, instead of staying within their own theme? What compels them to leave and see what the Multiverse has to offer?
If you are applying for an OFC: What did the changes to the original theme do to make the character different from their source material? Answer the above question for OCs as well.
What best motivates your character to visit other worlds? What sort of things do they react to by getting out the door and pursuing them? What kind of things excite and intrigue them? What kind of things frighten them or give them pause?
1c-3. Good Side
What would you call the brightest point of your character’s personality? Where do they excel as a person, and what are the upsides of knowing them?
1c-4. Bad Side
What would you call the lowest point of your character’s personality? What qualities of theirs are less than ideal? Do they recognize these low points? How do they feel about them? Most importantly, why is this side of their personality fun for other players to play off of?
1c-5. Faction Relations
Why is your character in the faction that they’re in, or failing that, why aren’t they in a faction at all? If you’re in a faction, what sort of conflict might your character have with that faction’s ideology, and how might it be resolved in play?
Give us a brief, concise overview of your character's background.
For OCs and OFCs: Three major moments of your character’s life that shaped them as an individual, explaining how each are important.
For FCs: A quick rundown of “the story so far” in your own words, in full or bullet point format, and justify your portrayal of the personality you intend through the most significant moments.
5c. Combat Give us an idea of how good your character is in a fight, with emphasis on relative effectiveness and importance in their source material. Specific questions to answer: Do they have room to grow, and if so how much? Where do they sit in their setting-- are they the final boss, a recurring midboss, a one-off, or something else? If this is an OC, why is your character where they are in their hierarchy? Optionally suggest a PL or range you think is appropriate, but understand it's non-binding and by default not discussed with applicants.
6c. Why? (OPTIONAL): This question must only be answered if you're applying for a Restricted concept, or if Staff prompts you to answer it. Why do you want to play this character? What do you want to do with them that you can't get out of something else, or something more simple? Can you handle it if it doesn't work out? What do you want to get out of it RP-wise, and what do you expect other people to get out of it in turn?
7c. Miscellaneous: This is just a miscellaneous field. If you have any notes or special requests (potential defection notices, for example), this is the place to put them.
