This page contains information about
how to submit your PC for this Chronicle. Everything on this page applies to all PC's in all Genres, regardless of what
character you are making.
This does not include
specific restrictions for individual genres. Anything specific to only one genre is on the
Rules Page. Be sure to read both before submitting a sheet.
[A] Submission Guidelines -
Deadlines to Submit
should have at least a first draft of your Character Sheet & Background within two weeks after you first come to our
should have finished all corrections and turned in a final version within a month of first arriving. You
will not be penalized for the wait for approval as long as you
submit on time.
If you cannot do this
much, you probably won't be able to keep up with the pace of this Chronicle, and should not play here.
Players who have not
sent in at least a first draft within two weeks of arrival, or a
completed PC by a month of arrival, will be asked to produce such or be asked to leave.
This is not a social hall.
Please submit your
completed Character sheet in *.xlc or *.doc/rtf format (see the
Downloads Page for Char Sheets),
along with your Background Bio that answers the
Four questions (both with your email address on there) to the ST listed
on the Sub-Genres
Rules Page for your genre. You can ask in channel for the email
address to submit your sheet.
Special Requirements for your CS or BG:
Special Requirements (such as additional background information,
equipment or details) for Submission of Character sheets are detailed on
Rules Pages, as they vary by genre. Some
genres require more data.
LONG UNTIL I AM APPROVED?:
do not guarantee a turnaround time on character sheets. We want to take our time and make sure we don't miss
things that just end up having to be redone later. The reasonable wait
time is approximately a couple of days after receipt of your sheet.
It can happen sooner but no promises.
We will try to
approve you quickly, but  we do not ST 24/7, and  Not every sheet is ready to go when we first
You can speed up
the process by making sure your sheet and BG are in
order as specified HERE. (Hint: this
why you should put your email on your CS and BG both.)
Approved chars will be Voiced (+v
mode) in the OOC Channel.
Feel free to politely
inquire about the status of your PC, no more than once a day.
Excessive hounding for approval may result
in you being removed from the game. We know you are anxious to RP, but
remember we are also people with lives, and they don't center around
getting this done in 15 minutes.
It is your responsibility to confirm that your
submission has been received, with the ST to whom you sent it.
NOT RP UNTIL YOU ARE APPROVED.
longer Temp approve characters, as this has been abused in past cases, some of which ended up in illegal combat that had to be redone
or redlined. Do not go IC even socially for any reason until you are
approved, voiced in Chanserv and subscribed to all the Yahoo Groups
you are supposed to belong to. No exceptions. Players have no means to
predict if a social scene will remain social or not.
APPROVAL OF MULTIPLE CHARACTERS:
Approval of one character is NOT automatic approval to play
more without submitting each to the same approval process. Each
character sheet must go through the process of individual approval.
Having voice (+v) in channel is not permission to run a new char that
we have not approved yet.
[C] WHO NEEDS A COPY OF YOUR SHEET?:
Obviously, your ST (listed on the Genres
Rules Pages). Your ST
will also need an updated copy of your sheet any time
anything changed. This is your responsibility to offer, not ours to hunt you
down and ask.
You will only be allowed to dice off the sheet your ST
has approved and has a copy of.
Op/St from our game, even from another genre, asks for your sheet for
any reason, give it to them.
[D] ONGOING RIGHT TO SPOT-REVIEW CHARACTER
*Please read this paragraph
carefully, until you are absolutely sure that you understand it. Every
player is subject to this rule, yet we still have had numerous players
argue and act as
if they never saw this section. Please don't be one of them.*
STís reserve the UNCONDITIONAL right to, on demand: review, question,
or ask for explanations, backgrounds or revisions on ANYTHING on
ANYONEís sheet in this chronicle, at ANY TIME for ANY
may occur weeks, months, or even years after initial approval, if an
ST feels that is warranted. That is their right to make that call, not
order to fairly referee our game, we reserve this right.
Sometimes we miss stuff, or STs disagree, and that
means we have to go back and change something. It happens.
play here, you agree to this condition. Anyone who has a problem with
this concept can play elsewhere.
Extend the same right to diligence to
every ST, that you would want on your side if your character's life
depended on the ruling. One night, it very well may.
[E] HOW MANY CHARACTERS MAY I SUBMIT?:
STARTING NUMBER OF PC's:
players will begin with just ONE PC, so choose your design with
Once you have played for a few weeks and have shown you can
handle all of the obligations of that PC, you may ask to have more approved.
do understand that having only one PC limits the chances for you to
RP, but that is more motivation to choose a PC that will fit in well
in the overall chronicle, so that you will be busy.
If your PC
design is too hard for you to carry, you may be able to swap it for
another one, ONE TIME. If you can't get the hang of
designing something that works after that, even with our reviews and
help, then you must use what
you have and make it work. The STs can help you but you need to take
their advice if you want to be relevant in the story.
 MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PC's:
We do not have a set number of
maximum characters you can run. This is an individual
thing, much like asking "How much food should I eat?" Obviously, what
you need, and what you are able to handle.
The guideline is that you
may submit and run as many characters as you can consistently handle
and obey the participation
guidelines. For some players, that
isnít even one character. For others, they can juggle many at the same
If you begin to slack, your ST may request you
catch up or get rid of some characters. If you get into the habit of creating a
characters that you just ignore, you may not only have them confiscated, but be
restricted from creating any more until the STs feel you respect the amount of
time and effort we expend in
the approval process.
may not make another character until ALL of your currently approved
PCs have been in good standing for the 2 months prior to creation.
Good standing means obeying the participation
guidelines and being IC 1x per week (8x in the last two
months) and submitting 4 downtimes ON TIME. If you can't handle this,
you can't handle more characters on your plate no matter how bored you
See the section called "Inactivity/Hiatus
Guidelines," if you simply
have a legitimate need
to put a character on hold, or retire them.
