Setting: The setting will focus on an older Massachusetts town: Driftmoore. Driftmoore is a small, but thriving city due to the influx of richer visitors that live in the forested bay. In the city, the school system is small - two public schools and a private university. The town is mostly filled with wandering teenagers and the occasional businessman that is there for a meeting. Massive chain stores have yet to reach this area due to their low population as they are lucky to even have a shopping center with a super market. Name: (Please put your name here. Odd names and nicknames are acceptable, but nothing incredibly ridiculous.) Age: (How old you are? The age range is from 10 to 80. As long as you are able to move and investigate.) Gender: (Self-explanatory) Appearance: (Describe your character's appearance. How they look, birthmarks, scars, clothing style.) Personality: (Describe your character's personality. This doesn't have to be very detailed, just enough to get an idea of your character.) Life History: ( Major events that happened in your character's life that guided them as a parents. Parents, childhood trauma, a first love, etc.) How did you come to Driftmoore?: (You have come to Driftmoore at some point in your life. You could have been born here, moved here, visited a relative or a business partner. You MUST have interacted with the town in some direct way.) Personal Memento: (Everyone has a memento. It could be a wedding ring, your parent's old school ring, a toy from when you were a child. What is it and do they still have it?) Misc: (Any sort of trivia about your character) Character Sheet Code: Name: Age: Gender: Appearance: Personality: Life History: How did you come to Driftmoore?: Personal Memento: Misc: A final note: My philosophy of role-playing has immensely changed. I'm not sure how this will translate into forum RP though. I've had players in my Dungeons & Dragons game send me a .doc file with five pages of their family heritage and back story. They insist that it's the best character they've written, but when they come to the table, they're bland and vapid. Your back story does not define your character - your actions do. If you write about how your character is observant in a back story, demonstrate it. For example: Observant Player lost his train of thought when something blinded him temporarily. He looked over at the glimmering golden watch that stood out against Tony's tanned skin. The watch look was worn as anyone could tell from the scratches along the gilded loops that clung tightly. The watch clung tightly... Tony must have visited the watchmaker recently. "Hey, New watch, Tony?" Lastly, please feel free to build the world and interact with it. If you're a school kid and you have friends, feel free to control them and use them as props. I will control them when it matters. If you personally don't like the butcher in town because of his scar or his bald head - there is a bald, scarred butcher that doesn't like you. Any questions, comments, or concerns, please let me know.
