Guidelines on Posting Your Character Sheets

Post  Damxge on Fri Mar 30, 2012 12:12 pm

Character sheets are just in depth descriptions of a person's Role Play characters, going into great detail on appearance and personality.

When posting one, remember a few rules:

-Do not post another person's character, it can take some people alot of effort to make their own custom character, and it just isn't right to steal that from them.
-Character Sheets are for users who have put enough effort into a sheet to make it worth reading over; so put some effort in yours/
-There can only be one character sheet per character, make a new thread for another character if you wish.
-Use the format described below, or your Character Sheet will be removed.
-If posting pictures, MAKE SURE YOU OWN THE ART! Don't post some picture of a manga or anime character as looking like your own, either draw your own, or purchase a commission from others.
-You can trade characters with another person should you finish with them, kill them off in your own Role Plays, etc...

Now for a few simple formal guidelines.

The Title:
It must contain the character's name!
Simply: Roman Marvarak
Would made an okay title for my character Roman Marvarak.

The Body:
When writing your character sheet, remember a few things.
-Start off with the name of your character, and follow with what RP he/she is active in (if any).
-Now is the time for a picture, if you feel like one.
-Next should be the character's backstory, this can be simple if you don't feel like writing a long one, but make sure its there.
-Now you can go into body detail.
-Once you're done with how they look, go into their personality a bit.

View below for a BASIC EXAMPLE! Do not copy this exactly as it does not go into enough detail.

Name: Roman Marvarak
*Picture*
Backstory: (Long backstory)
Eye Color: Green

Body Type: Tall and thin

Good luck and happy sheeting Happy

If you want to make a very detailed character sheet. Don't
Save that for dA
However if you're like me, you add onto other's character sheets

So if it's ok with Cross, I'll put up a small, moderately detailed character sheet
Or try too

Name:
Nicknames:
Age:
Race:
Gender:
Eye:
Hair:
Skin:
Body Type:
Distinguishing Features:
Personality:

I hope that's short enough and gives you chance to make a moderately detailed character.

Good idea Mr Tomyh Happy

If you get more time, could you possibly write up a more detailed one?

Oh I can do that
I have at least one Character sheet on a word document. Only it is really long.
This I got off an old group I was part of on dA. It's closed down now so I;m sure the original author wouldn't miss it

Not as far as some I've seen on dA. They go WAY deep.

Describe your characters life till now, motivations, family situation, pet peeves--anything that comes to you:

What is the one thing in the world your character would do anything to avoid? Why? What has he already done to avoid this? What do you see him doing in the future to avoid it?

Try that one for size

You don't have to follow the default word for word. Add your own, or subtract some, so long as its still in depth.
