When you write a synopsis, what sort of thing do you put?

Anything that you want. There is no hard and fast rule that you must follow. My advice is keep it short. Some people make it a factual statement of their character while others quote lyrics or something else. It's up to you.

Hi, can I just ask, how do you put a character code in the introduction of the RP? Like, a CS for the people to fill in?
This is a story about two boys
The taller one has a gun tucked into his waistband
He thinks the bullets are meant for him.
The older one has a record player in his head
He sings along to the same five songs.
They know each other
Down to the colour of blood
And the sound of bones breaking.
But they are strangers.
The one with the gun keeps forgetting the words
And the boy with the music won't let him shoot.

You can create a "code box" by typing all the information you want inside of brackets beginning with [ code] and ending with [ /code] without the spaces.

This is so helpful! As a total newbie, I really gained a LOT from this, so thanks! :D
Quick question, though, if you don't mind-

Are the only ways to create a character through (1) submitting a character to an already existing RP and (2) creating a character by creating your own RP?

I'm interested in creating a character independent from any RP at the moment and later using her in various RPs; is this possible or does she have to have origins in one RP?

Thank you for your time and this eye-opening guide! :D

Yeah, that's pretty much it. If you want a dumping ground for characters, The Multiverse is as good a place as any. (By the way, I'd be the QB that edited the OP.)

You can have characters with the same name in different RPs, but most GMs would probably appreciate it if you changed at least a bit of information to fit the setting. For example, if you make a traveler from a faraway land, look through the RP and find a suitable location in the Places setting.

One last nitpick, IDK if it was covered before: You can edit everything except the name. Also, I'd submit a character first and edit stuff in later whenever possible, as bemoaning the loss of an hour's worth of work or more is more common than it should be.
