HI!!! This seems really interesting, and i would love to be in it, however i have a few questions.
1. What do you want, in terms of info, on the character sheet? For example, do you want something extremely detailed, so people know about my character in head of time, or more like a skeleton so my character can be more of a surprise?
2. What questions do you want answered on said character sheet? (i.e. baackstory, gender, sexuality, powers, name, monster/human, personality, etc.?)
3. How long has this been going? I don't want to post on something you created 5 years ago and since forgotten.
4. How long do you want each post? Do you want it short and sweet or long and detailed?
5. Can you have multiple characters?
6. How long do you think this roleplay is going to last?
Thanks for reading my (probably stupid) questions, and (hopefully) answering them!!

Hello! This seems like an interesting role-play. :) Before I start writing up a character sheet, I also have a couple of questions to ask. Is this going to be fast paced? I may not be able to join if it is going to be too fast. I can respond often for summer, but when the fall semester starts I won't be able to respond quickly. Are you going to ensure everyone has a chance to respond before people are allowed to post again? How many people do you want in this role-play?
“What are you?" she asked.
"A monster," said Kell hoarsely. "You'd better let me go."
The girl gave a small, mocking laugh. "Monsters don't faint in the presence of ladies."
"Ladies don't dress like men and pick pockets," retorted Kell. Her smile only sharpened.
"What are you really?"
"Tied to your bed," said Kell matter-of-factly.
"And?" His brow furrowed.
"And in trouble.”

@Phyra
1/2. Name, Age, Gender, Faceclaim, Personality, and Species is all I need. More of a skeleton really. But you can include anything you'd like.
3. Just made it two days ago, and no one's joined yet c:
4. And somewhere in the middle. I'm more of a rapid fire person, but my posts go anywhere from one to six paragraphs. I'm only requiring one.
5. Definitely :3
6. Hopefully a long time. But the storyline isn't made that way. The basic arc could be done in a month or two or longer, it depends on the speed of the roleplayers.

@FaddedFox
Probably not too fast paced, it all really depends on who's there and how often they're online. I'd prefer at least one post from everyone a week, but it'll vary. Additionally, I think how often people post would depend on the situation. I don't usually require turns, as often that leads to an rp dying out, so usually it's just first come first serve, but let at least one person post in between yours. And a smallish group might be for the best; possibly two to four monsters, and two to four hunters. The amount should be even, so around eight or less.

Sweet! Thanks for the answers. I will go right ahead and create a character. Probably going for vampire, but we'll see as I flesh out the character. Also, for the face claim... I am not a huge fan of using real people but I'll try and find a realistic photo/painting/sketch. I am not used to using face claims lol. I hope we get more people soon. ^^

Hello - I am interested in creating a character for this roleplay. I'm currently thinking about making a male hunter, but if there end up being too many for the humans, I won't mind switching to a monster either.

If there needs to be more characters either way, I am experienced with RPing multiple characters effectively too, so that's also an option, ahaha. I love RPs like this - thanks for making it!

I'm happy to make RPs :3
and go right ahead and make a male Hunter. At the moment, we've only got 'monsters', so I think we'll be ok.

I'm going to role-play one Hunter and one Monster, if thats okay. If it ends up that more people want to join ill give up my monster persona. Okay?

I doubt you'll need to give up your character, I don't see this as getting uber popular, but go ahead and make however many you'd like.

Hey, me again. I'm in the middle of creating this really awesome monster character, but i'm distraught over what i should make her age. I am tied between making her 26 (around the age that most of the characters in this rp will probably be) or something really old like 140 (as this would be around 26 human years in her species life span). The reasons i am tied is because a. the lore on my characters species bassically say that they can only start turning into humans at about 50 years of age, b. because the lore also says that they gain tails (i'm doing a nine tailed fox) as they age (like they start with 1 but slowly get more over the span of their lifetimes), and finally c. i think it would be really weird to look the same as when the other rpers characters were young, and me always being the same in their memory, as i am assuming that the monster community is decently tight knit. Now, I'm thinking either a. just making her 26 and saying hell to the lore or b. making her have been in Japan (as this is where they originate) or somewhere else distant and having her recently moving here. The reason i think the latter is slightly undesirable is because that would mean that they wouldn't trust her, but that might just add to the character. Which one do you think is better for the role-play and the style of the role-play? I just feel really unsure about the whole thing, so if you could give me some insight that would be great!

p.s. sorry for the lengthy message XD

No problem. I think either would work, as they'd probably be used to old but young looking characters. Either way, it's a good idea. But, pm me, as I've an idea if you're up for it.

So, I've submitted a tentative character profile - got the basics down and any changes made would be superficial/wording-based. Please let me know if there are any issues that should be addressed before acceptance!

Ooooo. I was really excited for this, tell I saw the face claim thing. I can't quite fill that requirement, on account of my monster character doesn't quite fill the bill of "human looking". I have a DeviantArt piece lined up, but that's about as far as I can go on that. Sorry, I'm not trying to be the guy who starts the "can I be an exception" train. I can write up the character concept so you can judge if it warrants justifying this, if you'd like.

If its not a human looking creature, then yes, go ahead and disregard that rule.
