So, a few notes about applying:
1. You will need a character journal for the game, but you don't need to create one until you're accepted in the community. There are no specific rules on what the username should be, but try to avoid: excessive underscores (____zeus), numbers (zeus16233), or x's (xxxxzeusxxxx), just to make it easier to search for the journal.
2. Please fill out the application and send it in an e-mail, or send us a link to the app in your character journal.
3. Please make sure you have read the rules, FAQ, and checked to be sure neither your premade nor PB is on hold or taken. Comments are screened.
4. If you are applying for a sibling/spouse of a character already in the game, it is highly recommended you read that character's bio. That way, you can make sure that the history you're writing doesn't conflict with theirs.
5. If you have already been accepted to the game with a character and are applying for another, you do not need to complete the first person example or roleplay sample sections.
If you'd like to get an idea of what we're looking for, feel free to check out the Example Application, which is Ash's application for Persephone.
If you are accepted:
1. Congratulations! Your first order of business will be to create a character journal. Then you'll need to join the three communities with that journal--paxletale (First-person community posts), paxletalelogs (Third-person logs), paxletaleooc (OOC posts). You can also join letalesquee for all your flailing needs. Please also comment to the apartment list with what apartment number you'd like for your character.
2. Next, you'll most likely want to make a post in the OOC community. Introduce yourself! Let people know where they can read your character's bio, and how they can contact you if you want plot.
3.Please also take a glance at the guidelines for posting in each community, which are located in the community profiles. You can also go look over the contact post and provide your contact information (this post is locked), and enter your username into the friending button so you don't miss updates in people's personal journals.
4. The rest is up to you! Plot, make your first post, have your character introduce themselves to the rest in a log or a post in the main community, whatever you like!
If you are rejected:
1. We will give you reasons, on request, for why we couldn't accept you to the community at this time. But don't lose hope! Take your application back, tinker with it, rewrite it, do whatever you need to do to improve, and feel free to apply again after you've waited one week to give someone else a chance.
Journal: (Your personal journal, where ever you have one) (Optional)
AIM: (Or any other instant messenger you can be contacted through.)(Optional)
Are you 18 or over?:
Where did you hear about us?
Name: (your character's name)
Pantheon: (Greek, Norse, etc)
Deity: (Please include the name and at least one link to online source material.)
Age: (No characters under 18 will be accepted.)
Played By: (Please provide the name and an image link of your desired Pb.)
Requested Apartment: (The list of taken and available apartments can be found here.)
Personality: (Talk about the character's likes, dislikes, and fears. Discuss their favorite possessions, their habits and quirks, their physical mannerisms. Are they selfish? Naive? How do they speak? Do they act differently around some people rather than others, or are they all one note? Who are their favorite people? Do they have any friends? Don't be afraid to go into detail--there is no such thing as too long. Must be at least two paragraphs.)
History: (Exactly what it sounds like. Give as detailed a description as you can of your character's background. This is where you really get to shine. Take the premade you've been given and spin it into a life. Where were they born? Who were their parents? What was their childhood like? Did they have a difficult time growing up? Go into as much detail as you can, and don't be afraid to wax a bit long! Must be at least three paragraphs, preferably longer.)
Future Plans: (This is your place to discuss what you'd like to see your character doing in the community. How will they be spending their days and nights? If there's someone they have a crush on, do you see them pursuing that person?)
Transformation: (Future plots will require your character to turn into their deity; what are your plans for this? Characters must have both a partial and full transformation, as plots will call for each. Transformations must be physical; it is not acceptable for deities to retain their mortal form outside of a partial transformation. If you have questions or need help defining your character's transformation, please contact the mods.)
Ability/Powers: (What sort of powers your deity will eventually develop. Characters are permitted no more than one power/ability. Check out the faq for some ideas of what we're looking for.)
First Person Community Example: (Please provide an example of at least one paragraph of a community post your character might make. Remember that the community is like any other community on LJ, just people posting on the internet to talk to one another, and thus should be in first person. Try to showcase their voice as much as you can.)
Roleplay Sample: (Please provide a roleplay sample in third-person format. You may provide a link to a scene with another character [or characters - but keep in mind, your character should be prominently featured], or paste it into your application. Please remember to indicate which character is yours! :) )
Notes: (Is there any other pertinent information about your character or yourself that you'd like us to know? If you have previous roleplaying experience and you'd like to link it as a reference, please also feel free to do so here.)
Ready to apply? Copy and paste the application from the following box into an e-mail, or send us a link to the app in your character journal. Applications should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
