Character Sheet Application

CHARACTER SHEET APPLICATION



Welcome! If you are reading this, that means you are ready to create your own character and join in on the fun. Hopefully this guide will make the process quick and painless. All you'll be needing is the form below, and an urge to create a great story and character.

First, you will need to copy and paste the following form into a new topic in the Registration forum. Make the topic name the name of your character, followed by his/her species in brackets, followed by the application's status.

Example: Steel Strike[Unicorn][WIP]
Example: Megabyte Stream[Pegasus][Completed]

Remember the Factions as you work on your application as well. You may be any species and join either side. You may be a pony(or other non-griffon race) who is a simple civilian; or, a member of the rebellion.  You may also be a griffon who is a simple civilian, or part of the griffon army. Totally up to you. Just try to keep in mind the repercussions of choosing one faction and position over another. Griffon civilians get it all, life is easy for them. Same with griffon army and guerrillas. If you are another race, you must keep in mind that you are open to griffon oppression, regardless of whether or not you are part of the rebellion.

Pictures are not required, but are recommended. They may be self-drawn, commissioned, or generated. If you need a generator, here are a few good ones: General Zoi's Pony Creator, HUB's Facebook Pony Maker, Griffon Generator. If you would like to commission a character, try looking around on DA or check the Art section.

Before You Make Your Character

While we do not discriminate, please note that the following
is cliche as hell, and will make you seem generic:

"I am a super assassin who can dodge bullets",
"I killed my parents", "My entire family was massacred",
"I want revenge because they killed my parents",
"I am really bonkers and will kill everything without remorse".

Application Form:



=Information=
Name:
Species:
Gender:
Age: (use normal age equivalents)
Occupation:
Likes:
Dislikes:
Astrology?: (optional, feel free to use the Zodiac Pony emotes we have in the "Animated Emotes" section in the emoticons bar.)
Special Talent:
Minor Talents: (optional)
Alignment: (Rebels, Griffons, Neutral, Undecided)

=Appearance=
Height: (normal pony/zebra height 4'(max is 5'), normal griffon/diamond dog/buffalo height 5',(max is 6') males are generally about 4" taller for each race. Donkey height 4' min/max)
Coat Color:
Mane/Tail Color:
Eye color:
Cutie/Glyph Mark: (ponies/zebras only)

Picture: (pictures are not required, but are highly recommended)

=Bio=
Personality: (try to make this at least 2 paragraphs with at least 5 sentences each)


History: (try to make this at least 2 paragraphs with at least 5 sentences each)

Special Skills/Abilities/Spells Descriptions: (for characters have any special qualities that need a more in-depth explanation; if you possess unicorn spells, like teleportation and the like, list them here.)

Personal Timeline: (once the character begins posting, keep track of the posts here.)



Once you've finished, be sure to mark your application [Completed]. Then you play the waiting game. A staff member will be along shortly to review and approve, or show what needs to change. Once approved, your application will be moved to the Character Sheets form. Once that happens, you are free to post. At the end of your CS, it is required to keep a timeline of the cannon threads appeared in. For more information please see Individual Character Timelines

Keep in mind when creating your character, which race you choose to play as. Each has flaws and  advantages. You may find a complete list of the races available in the Griffon Kingdoms: Essentials manual, with strengths and weaknesses for each. Keep in mind that certain races are more popular then others, and staff appreciates it when people ask whether or not a certain race is underpopulated.

You may be any race and identify with either side. It is possible to be a griffon who supports the rebellion. Griffon citizens are not uncommon in Equestria, and do not have to comply with the griffon/pony law. They would make excellent spies. Ponies, or any other race, can be aligned with the griffons as spies as well. However, to start it is recommended you stick to your race's side. After a handle is had on the setting, can always make another character.

Have fun!
