  • All major scars/disfiguring marks must be explained in the history. Eye, hair and skin colors must be realistic.
  • Please use the form as it is coded. We reserve the right not to look at an app with a modified format as far as the section titles go -- they're intended to be standard. You are welcome to write the sections in a format of choice as long as the required amounts are there. Special tags are used to ensure visibility on all skins.
Now that the notices are done, below you will find the application as it will appear when you post it, details on what each section asks for, and the coding so you can copy and paste and start filling it in.

The Character

Full Name: For help with a name:, (steer away from old english).

Class: Guardian, Handler, Rogue, or Order Rogue
Starting City:
If you are neither a Guardian nor a Rogue affiliated with the Order, you may choose which city you want to start in OR have it chosen for you at random by the staff. If you ARE a Guardian or a Rogue, fill in this section with the city where your Lord, Lady, or Trick Lord resides.
Patron or Trick Lord: See above- do not fill out if you are not a Guardian or Order Rogue.

Overall Appearance:
Two paragraphs minimum; a picture is optional -- no larger than 500x500 unless put in a link. The picture does not replace the written description. Include things like basic build and height, facial features, preferred clothing styles, complexion, et cetera. Remember that paleness will be rather unusual except in the upper classes/possibly tailors and indoor craftsmen since people have to work outside or in the daylight for much of their food or gold. Please note that the modern average height for females is from around 5'4'' to 5'5'' (1.65m) and for males is 5'10'' (1.78m), and during this time period people were very often about 4" shorter on average.

By and large, tattoos should only be worn by native peoples or those who came from a culture where they were done; tattoos were very uncommon in the medieval era and carried a very high risk of infection, which could result in the loss of body parts or in a fatality if not treated quickly and well!

Distinguishing Features:
OPTIONAL. If your character has anything that makes them easy to pick out of a crowd, here's the place to put it in a quick list. It's okay to have a plain character, remember, and sometimes being plain keeps you alive.

Overall Personality:
Two paragraphs minimum. Include things like strengths, weaknesses, quirks, fears, hopes, anything that makes your character who they are.

Four paragraphs minimum, please.

RP Sample:
Please read your character class's topic and play out getting your pokémon and/or joining the Order or Guardians accordingly. Staff will present you with an egg and 3 pokémon choices, so please refer to your pokémon simply as 'the pokémon' or something similar for this sample.

Weapon and Armour Choices: Please choose from those listed in your character class's topic.
Intended Aptitudes: Please choose three from list.

The Player

This section is entirely optional.
Time Zone:
How did you find us?
Anything Else: Please do let us know, here or privately, if English isn't your first language or if you have any type of neurodivergence such as dyslexia and we'll bear it in mind when we read your app! This is also a good place to put pronouns if you want.
