The character creation stages are starting, so, for all those wishing to become writers, now is probably the best time to jump in!
There will be 10 sessionists (writer or writer artist teams), each in control of a single 10 player session.
To become a sessionist, you will first have to register you session:
Each session will need a sessionist (writer or writer/artist team), and a name and symbol (Greek alphabet), optional additions; what special aspect you want, character(s), moon, rung (1-5, with 1 being closer to skaia and 5 being further)
For an example, lets use the present only confirmed session, Zeta:
Session: Zeta ζ
Character: [see below]
The character creation is a little more complicated; but in essence you follow these guidelines:
The characters first and last name goes here. remember the 4 6/7 rule
which of the sub sessions is it in. if you are not a writer simply put [session pending]
class and aspect, think really hard about this one, use google doc to find classpects
put the basic sprite here
For help use the 'WHAT WEAPON WOULD YOU USE THREAD'
For help use Pommy’s modus shop
both parts of the chum handle usually have something to do with the character, keep that in mind
the general idea when creating these is to base it off of some pun, or have it just generally have it have something to do with the charecter, so for example, if your charecter REALLY likes mario galaxy, maybe its the Land of Moons and Mushrooms
first who is the guardian, then a basic rundown on personality
The intro paragraph that tells us where they start in the story and who they are.
how will they develop in the story, will they? do you have any plans for these characters?
As suggested in the sessions session, you can suggest characters without running a session, and for that time being, they’ll be put in the “unconfirmed character abyss”, where session writers can pick them up if they chose too.
Other reasons for going into the abyss include ‘unfinished information’ (lack of sprites, lack of guardian lack of chumhandle, etc.) and ‘Breaking the Rules’ (more then 4 letter first names, being a troll, set as plot focus, etc.).
Any “breaking of the rules” will be pointed out by the Continuity Officer ‘perspectiveFanatic’, so you can fix them up if you so wish.
Also note that if a writer takes in a character, they have the right to change parts of it that they feel need changing.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!
