Profile Guide

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Tue May 16, 2006 8:03 am

A lot of people like to post character profiles, detailing everything about their character. Some prefer to just act it out. Here's to those of you who want to post profiles.

To post a profile, create a new topic, using the following format:

[Universe] Character name (Variation)

Where Universe is where that version of the character exists... Multiverse being anywhere, any universe, any storyline - while getting more narrow, such as [DBZ], would state your character to be a DragonBall Z character. A universe of [AnimeLeague] would mean that the character is specific to AnimeLeague. Profiles without a universe are considered Multiverse.

Character name is fairly obvious, you should use the full name here.

Variation is somewhat intuitive, if you have two versions of a character within the same universe or site, you may want to use this field. It is optional.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Teh Andy on Sat Mar 31, 2007 2:36 pm

If anyone has no clue what to put for height and weight ratios (and trust me, several of you don't) let me know via PM. I just need to know what kind of body type you want and how tall they'll be and I can get you a weight. Pics of comparable figures help.

I don't know about you guys, but I know that when I first create a character, I don't always know enough about them to create a profile. I'd suggest an ongoing profile.., just make sure to clear that with the people running the rp you're in.

For you new people, here's what usually goes into a profile :

Name:
Age:
Height:
Weight:
Haircolor:
Eyecolor:
Accessories:
Abilities:
Background/History:


Some other ideas are: build type, race, class, employment. Pretty much, anything you think people might need to know.

Now, I'm building a character where I have very little of her profile up. I have her basic physical appearence down, that always happens by the end of the first attempt at rping a character. I have her first name, still working on the rest of it. And then I have "other stuff" where I'm making notes about her as I go along. Currently I think it has five bullets.

Oh yes, I'd also suggest keeping a document on your own computer with the permanent link to your character profiles. Yes, multiple. Because you probably will join more than one rp, and characters have to be changed a little for each one. And the suggestion is because they have a tendency to get burried.

I always use this kind of template:

Name:
Age:
Sex:
Race:

Personality:

Likes:
Dislikes:

Good qualities:
Bad qualities:

(Optional for non humans) Powers:

Other (information):

Appearance:
(Image)

---------------------------
Why I don't use that whole describing the appearance?
Even if you're doing it detailed, I'd probably be confused. I don't read long stories containing short sentences. So if someone puts it like: Brown eyes, blue hair. Has a few freckles on his right cheek, a scar on his left cheek, brown pants, black shirt, long jacket goes down to his knees.
I skip that part.
An image gives you the information right away.

Though sometimes, I could put medical records in the profile like this:

Age: Records:
3 fallen from tree, broke leg
16 arrested by police for strong violence, broke jaw
21 hospitalized from a carcrash

And so on and so on.

That's a pretty different profile right?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Dulra Ayatsuru on Tue Aug 12, 2008 8:17 am

Hi I am fairly new here, though not so new at RPing. I wanted to know if, for the universe section, can we add our own universe or must we choose one or multiverse. I realise creating an entire universe is somewhat of a large task to take on, but I feel ready, as I have been working on one called "TechGen: War" for a while now, and I do think it is ready. For now it is merely my characters humble abode, however I want to make a full-fledged rp out of it - When I feel ready. So is that okay or should I stick to a multi?
