Mortal Background Information
Please fill out the questionnaire below and email to Nighthawk at email@example.com and Hawk at ShelteringHawk@gmail.com. Thank you. :)
Virtues 7. None over 4.
Willpower = Courage. Never over 5.
Humanity = Conscience + Self-Control
All Virtues and Attributes start with a rating of 1. Players then add their expenditures to that rating. So if you spend 2 dots in Dexterity, you would end up with a rating of 3. 2+1=3.
I will not accept 5's in anything out of the gate.
You should only have one or two 4's in abilities and attributes. My preference is one. If you have two 4's, please make sure its justified. I am reluctant with as it gives you very little to work for. Initially I allowed them and seems to have encourage a culture of roll play vs roleplay. 4's will need a strong justification and at chargen, should be considered rare.
I know people love to write short stories. The problem with short stories is while they might give insight into your character, they are extraordinarily difficult to extract crucial information from, if that information made it in at all.
This questionnaire replaces what is required for your background. You may choose to do a traditional story background in ADDITION TO the questionnaire, however, it will not fulfill what I require for approval. Some players love to write short stories to demonstrate their characters. The problem with short stories is while they might give insight into your character, they are extraordinarily difficult to extract crucial information from, even if that information made it in at all. Thus, staff requires a new approach. Your application's background will be divided into nine parts, and you will provide the information that staff requests in them. You must be able to answer all these questions.
