Welcome to the Character Creation Journal For #FairyTailFantasy
In order to create a character, there are several items that need to be discussed.
-First off, due to Fairy Tail revolving around Magic, just about any kind of magic can be used. If you can think it up and explain it well enough in words for an admin to understand, you're good.
-No magic, however, that is inherently God-mod, such as immortality, invincibility, etc., will be allowed. Everything has a weakness, and YOU ARE NO EXCEPTION.
-Please, oh PLEASE, don't make any Mary-Sues. Make your characters realistic in their actions and personality. Don't go saying that their entire family was killed in cold blood, and making them completely cheerful ALL THE TIME. Have them make sense.
-Your character sheet should reflect hard work and effort; it should be detailed and make sense. Your character will be the bridge to the rest of the Fairy Tail Universe in the room, so there should be no half-assed sheets submitted. If there are, then you WILL BE ASKED to work harder. But do keep in mind that length doesn't equate to effort, spelling, grammar, originality, and plain thought all count too.
-There are several LIMITED types of magic. First are DRAGON SLAYERS. Dragon Slayer magic is very powerful, and will only be given to those who are deemed capable of wielding it without Godmodding. Second, please don't use magic from the arc that is currently occurring. Wait until the arc is finished and we know all about the magic before making any characters. Celestial gates magic is limited. If you make a gates user, the zodiac keys are non-existent in this universe. Instead, you can have custom keys that summon other powerful beasts.
-Give your character strengths and weaknesses based on their rank. A rookie in a guild would NOT have the same powered magic as an S ranked mage.
-No animals, or any type of creature other than humans. Period.
-You only need a single approval from an admin in order to rp, but please, don't start rping BEFORE you're accepted. It'd be a good idea to let your guild master have a look at the sheet as well. Also, admins, please POST your approval in a comment on their sheet in order give hard evidence of your approval.
-A piece of advice: give your character a theme, and several quirks. A theme helps tie the character together, and quirks make RPing a whole lot more fun.
The Character Template
You don't have to use this exact formatting, but please include everything shown. Also, please copy it down into a journal entry, and post the link as a comment. This will save space, and it will be easier to edit your character upon a promotion or if changes need to be made.
Name: (Simple enough)
Nickname/Alias/Title: (Here goes nicknames, aliases, or titles. Self-explanatory)
Sex: (Male or Female)
Age: (Nobody would recruit a toddler to a guild, and please keep the age reasonable. No 500 year olds please)
Physical Appearance: (General information about your character including hair color, facial features, eye color, body build, height, weight, etc.)
Accessories: (Clothing, and anything else that they wear that isn't attached to their body. If it could count as a weapon, leave it until said section)
Personality: (Please be detailed and specific. Try to match it with the history so it makes sense)
Likes: (Self explanatory)
Dislikes: (Self explanatory)
History: (Please, dear god, PLEASE be detailed. Tell everything you can think of that was important in their lives before the present day. It should be at least a dozen sentences, longer if your character is older)
Magic and Combat Information
Magic Name: (Dragon slayer magic, Celestial Gates, Ex-quip, etc. Give your magic an original, creative name)
Magic Type: (Elemental, supplementary, etc.)
Magic Description: (DETAILED description of what exactly your magic is. If you are using a canon type of magic, then give a link to the Fairy Tail Wiki page)
Magic Techniques: (Special techniques using your character's magic)
SAMPLE POST: (A sample post in which you show how your magic would work. It's optional, but it WILL help explain if your magic is complicated)
Guild: (What guild are you going to join? If you're remaining unaffiliated, state so)
Weapons: (Any weapons your character is in possession of)
Strengths: (What is your character good at? What makes them a good fighter?)
Weaknesses: (What could your opponent possibly do to defeat your character in battle? Must be exploitable weaknesses)
Magic Value: (Look below)
Physical Value: (For now, don't worry about this value. It will be detailed on in the character improvement journal. You get 2 numbers, a magic value and a physical value. They relate to your character's combat capabilities. You receive a total of 10 points as a newbie, and you can dish these points out to each stat. You have to give at least one in each category, and it basically determines your strength in that area. It will be detailed further in the Character Improvement Journal)
