How to submit a character

Post by jelle619 » January 3rd, 2019, 18:28

This how-to will lead you step-for-step through the process of creating your very own character for Pactbound! Please keep the following in mind when creating your character:
  • Make sure it fits within Pactbound. The wiki might come in handy for this.
  • Make sure your character is completely finished before trying to submit it.
What does a character application need to include?
Please make sure your character application includes at least the following:
  • Username: the username you use on the forum.
  • Name: the name of your character.
  • Pronouns: your character's preferred pronouns.
  • Species: your character's species.
  • Nationality: your character's nationality (can be different from where your character currently lives).
  • Alignment: how "evil" your character is, whether they generally have good intentions or not.
  • Appearance: what does your character look like?
  • Personality: go more in-depth on your character's personality.
  • Abilities: your character's abilities (make sure they are not overpowered and do not forget to mention their weaknesses as well).
  • Backstory: anything important that has happened to your character up to this point in time.
You may, of course, mention other stuff besides this in your character in your application. The above is just the bare minimum. You may also create a character that represent you in the world of Pactbound! To do so, just give the character the same name as yourself.

How do I submit a character?
  1. Create a new thread in the Character Submission forum.
  2. Use the following format for your thread's title:

    Code: Select all

    Character Name, Species
  3. Fill out one of the forms below and use it for your forum post's contents:
    • If you want your character application to be hosted on our site, use the form below (feel free to include artwork or images as well if you want):

      Code: Select all

      [b]Username:[/b] the username you use on the forum.
      [b]Name:[/b] the name of your character.
      [b]Pronouns:[/b] your character's preferred pronouns.
      [b]Species:[/b] your character's species.
      [b]Nationality:[/b] your character's nationality (can be different from where your character currently lives).
      [b]Alignment:[/b] how "evil" your character is, whether they generally have good intentions or not.
      [b]Appearance:[/b] what does your character look like?
      [b]Personality:[/b] go more in-depth on your character's personality.
      [b]Abilities:[/b] your character's abilities (make sure they are not overpowered and do not forget to mention their weaknesses as well).
      [b]Backstory:[/b] anything important that has happened to your character up to this point in time.
      
    • If you want to host your character application's contents outside of this site (e.g. a web page), please use the form below instead:

      Code: Select all

      [b]Username:[/b] the username you use on the forum.
      [b]Name:[/b] the name of your character.
      [b]Species:[/b] your character's species.
      [b]URL:[/b] The link to your character application.
      
  4. It's time to submit your character application! Our staff will take a look at it as soon as possible. Once it's approved, you may start using them right away!
Need any more help?
You may always ask for help on our Discord server or PM staff. If you already have an existing character from, for example, another role-playing forum, we'll help you bring them over!
