  1. So everyone's heard me note this for awhile. Either as "canon-friendly characters", or similar terms. This post is here to clarify my plans for those who wish to utilize the system. Please note that this system is intended for those who wish to delve their characters into the world and be shaped by it. They are held to a higher standard than traditional "hop in the game and just roleplay", akin to those familiar with the intended purpose of the old Nation Head roleplay characters in older renditions of A'therys. Choosing not to utilize this system does not affect the "My Timeline" feature Sellt plans to initiate, nor your ability to use it. In fact, the two systems cross-section in several cases, and you may see similarities in the plans for both. With introductions aside, I now present a brief summary on Player Characters. Player Characters A player character is a player-made character that has been approved as canon-friendly. These characters may be found in the official A’therys Wiki, and will be denoted with a header stub that they are an active player character, rather than a canon story NPC. How Do I Make One? A player-character is created via a “player character approval” form, submitted and approved by the Loremaster + 1 Lantern; or 3 Lanterns Any player-character must meet the following criteria to be approved as canon-friendly : All characters must be OC [Original Characters] Do not bend or port characters from other stories. A character ripped directly from their original source will result in a 1 month suspension of future applications. A player may only have one Player-Character; and may not have an additional on an alternate minecraft account. A player using an alternate account who is caught doing so will have both player characters revoked from further updates in the Wiki. Well-written background IE: Avoiding Mary-Sues. Naming convention matches their nationality. Not having a Daidamese character named Bob Smith In addition - will not accept player-characters from eastern nationalities (Alor, etc.) Player will be given a [[Destiny]] Choose either a ‘Past Haunt’, ‘Present Situation’ or ‘Cryptic Future’ These will likely be a lot of generic ones; with some tailored in with the character's nation Example of a "present" one : "You have recently been inundated by odd looks, curses, and the occasional challenge to a duel." So say the player might decide that a notorious bandit looks like them, and they are paying for his mistakes; and they develop their roleplay initially around that. An example of a nation specific one: Daidama: "Your cousin is a member of the Justices, and wants you to join." Maybe they decide that they sought this cousin for aid; and his aid has a price; the price being "join up with the justices" Examples of “Cryptic Futures” The black messenger will fall. Beware the one who loves you most. Miracles do happen, as you shall see. There is very little that cannot be undone. Examples of “Past Haunts” Your father was a respected officer, and he saw to it that you had every opportunity to follow in his footsteps. No longer able to cope with the horrors she has seen, your lovely younger sister has retreated into a world that exists only within her mind. Long ago you were beaten badly at what you do best. Worse yet, the person who showed you up was a good friend of yours. In the end, Destinies are a Rorschach Test type deal; it's vague enough to be a situation - but open ended enough to be interpreted in a lot of creative ways. Sounds Great! What do I do once I have a player-character? Once your player character is in the wiki; you may archive your activities in roleplay; and write up a summary of your events in an “Update Report” An update report is posted on the forum, and approved by 2 Lanterns. Update Reports should be written either as a summary of events which can be transcribed into a wiki article, or written in paragraph form by the player wishing to update. All update reports for a Player Character will be on a specific forum topic denoted to that Player Character; ensuring that all their updates are in one location. Update Reports are subject to the following criteria : Any mentioned interaction with another Player Character must have either written consent from the other player; or proof of said action (Screenshot, tabbychat log, etc.) Any claims of titles or achievements must be confirmed : either by witness or via the My Story feature on their profile. Mentions of non-canon names (IE: town of Alabasta) may be removed from updates, depending on name and copyright infridngement. Approved update reports will be added to the player-character’s wiki entry! Okay, so what are the benefits? Your story goes into the Wiki as an entry; which includes Linking Names. As a canon-friendly character, actions in Storyline Events are noted and updated. To any that server as nation head, this includes notation of the position. Plus: You get this nifty side-bar!
