HEY GUYS. Guess what? The character mods have been planning to make a new character template, and we've finally accomplished something finished it! Feel free to use it if you find it more interesting.

However, in order to help with character making, we'd like you to read it over and give us your opinion on this template. Some things you think should be added, taken away, extended, etc. Anything works!

Code for Form:
 



        * birth certificate



          Name:
          Nicknames: (if applicable)
          Age:
          Place of Birth: (optional)
          Godly Parent:
          Mortal Family:
          Claimed or Unclaimed:



        * camp life



          Year-Round or Summer Camper:
          Years at Camp:
          History: Must be at least 6 sentences long (See also: Guide on how to write well rounded character)



        * the psyche



          Personality: Must be at least 6 sentences long (Please include flaws in here.)
          Fatal Flaw: (Please do not make this a ‘flaws’ section. Flaws must be evaluated in the personality.)
          Likes: At least 3
          Dislikes: At least 3


        * the appearance



          Physical Description: Must be at least 6 sentences long
          Dressing Style: Optional



        * the defensive system



          Demigod Talents:
          Weapons:
          Pets:



        * the puppet master
        (for new members only)

          Interests:
          How you found this site:

I thought we discussed just bumping 4 to 6 sentences for B3 characters?

What. We did.

I thought we were just going to reduce it from 8 to 6 sentences. But we should ask the members, yo. :\

    Are we required to use this new template if the option "I approve of this" wins?

Not necessarily the coding, but the fields will be needed to be filled out.

UNLESS someone suggests an alternative in this topic.

I don't understand the point of likes, dislikes, and place of birth. Like...does anyone really care about that? Or couldn't that be added to the personality description to lengthen it?

We discussed increasing the descriptions from 4 to 6 sentences for big three characters, not regular characters. :I Not everyone can write more than 4 sentences for certain fields. And yes, while many of us can, if we're capable, then we simply do. 4 sentences for those who can't seems enough to me as is.

I feel like 'place of birth', is unnecessary to have as a separate spot. Like, it can be just included in History or Brief History. Other than that, I don't care about the rest of it. :I

They add character development. Make a well rounded charcter. Like head canons.

I can't change that right now, I'm on nobile. Could you change it for me?

This new template needs a section for Weapons and Demigod Abilities/Talents plus their limitations. We don't want people going overboard with their character's powers.

And I agree with Zan. Place of Birth does seem unnecessary when you can just include it in the History section.

In my opinion, it's definitely a great template, I just don't think there's much that makes it very different from the one now - other than categorizing the sections and separating some of them into the finer details.

I think it would work well if you maybe released it with some pretty, possibly personalizable coding and made it just a fancier alternative to the current template. That way, people who like basic templates or who like to customize their templates can use the current one, and people who don't know much about coding or maybe want a more organized/detailed template can use the new one.

I wouldn't really like it if it were mandatory to separate my template into named sections - but that's just personal preference and I could suck it up if the other members were fine with it. *o*

No, we just decorated it. The sections aren't mandatory.

I don't really think nicknames should be mandatory, because if the character doesn't have a nickname, then it might take up space on the template, but make it optional and I think it looks nice.

I love it. Some of them should definitely be optional, but adding more sentences is good, as well as providing people with a nicer template.

Good job Cher!

So, if we make a new character, are we supposed to use this template, or the other one?

Oh dang, I just accepted someone who used this template. I mean, its been here for ages, and all the info seems adequate. Some of us don't exactly follow the template given our information is sufficient.

We should decide on it soon though.. :)
