Mandi's Character Adoptions

A D O P T I O N ♥ I N F O R M A T I O N

Whether you're looking for a muse-boost or interested in joining an on-board family or simply have a concept in your head that you don't want to design an appearance for, there could be something here just for you! By and large, I'm typically a relaxed adopter and completely recognize the challenges that circumstances and creativity can pose on adopted characters. The most important thing to me is that you're happy with your adoptable, because that makes for a successful adoption!

That said, it is paramount that the Adoption Contract is read thoroughly before contacting me regarding any available character. Though I will always try to work with you on any requested changes, plans, or ideas, there are some adoptables with which I either cannot or will not consider alterations to. But I consider myself fairly approachable, so never hesitate to poke me with your ideas :)

Thanks to Sie, Raze, and San for this template! <3

Contract

Terms

Each character will come with specific contract terms. Please take note of these when considering a certain character:

Strict

  • Character does come with preexisting connections and/or has been previously played.
  • Character has strict constraints and may either be required to join a particular pack, have preexisting plots, and/or be previously well-developed.
  • Character will be reclaimed if dropped or if contract is broken.
  • Player must have solid activity, good communication and comprehension skills, and no recent rule infractions or issues.
  • Player will be required to provide a writing sample in character's POV of 200+ words.

Moderate

  • Character may come with preexisting connections and/or has been previously played.
  • If character is a puppy, they will be required to remain in their birth pack until they reach 1 year of age.
  • Character may be reclaimed if dropped or if contract is broken.
  • Player should have solid activity, good communication and comprehension skills, and no recent rule infractions or issues.
  • Player may be required to provide a writing sample or test-drive this character in LASKY at my discretion.

Relaxed

  • Character may come with minor connections and/or has been previously played for a short time.
  • Character does not come with additional constraints and is allowed to join any pack, be involved in any plot, and is open to all interpretations.
  • Character may be reclaimed if dropped or if contract is broken.
  • Player should have solid activity, good communication and comprehension skills, and no recent rule infractions or issues.
  • Player will not be required provide additional writing samples or test-drive this character in LASKY.

Adopter Rights

  • All baubles (art, titles, icons, etc.) originally given with the adoptable return with the character.
  • Gift art and gift graphics are typically considered reclaimable with the adoptable. If you bear a particular attachment to a table or something, let me know; I am flexible.
  • Commissioned and bought art is considered your property. New players must request your permission to use such items, even in the case of art customized to that particular character.
  • Titles and icons:
    • If earned via game points or contests, these are considered your property. You must, however, request removal/transfer in a timely manner after dropping the adoptable or they become property of the new player.
    • If purchased via the 'Souls store, these are considered your property and may be removed/transferred to your own character at any time.

Re-Adoption

Every character I create (or help to create), regardless of the terms, means something to me. I really care that these characters find dedicated players and are played to their full potential. As a result, I may choose to reclaim the character if you have:

  • been removed in an activity sweep without contacting me within one month to discuss.
  • dropped them for a period of 6+ months with no attempts to pick them up again.
  • dropped them after only brief play (0-5 months or 0-100 posts).
  • dropped them after inadequate play, such as unfinished threads, unfulfilled plots, errors in interpreting preset constraints, etc.
  • broken the character's adoption contact in any way with no intention of remedying the issue.
  • been permanently banned from 'Souls.

That said, I understand things come up and I may be willing to re-adopt to you again if you are willing to work with me and show a genuine attachment to a particular character. It never hurts to reach out to me <3

Pre-Adoption Changes

For characters without development
These characters likely have not appeared at 'Souls yet

  • You are free to discuss pre-adoption changes to their history, appearance, family, etc. I'm typically open to such changes, so throw your ideas at me!
  • I understand that character development just happens sometimes, but if it's your plan from the get-go to take a character a different direction than I envisioned, let me know beforehand.

For characters with development
These characters have probably appeared at 'Souls already

  • Changes may not be possible, especially regarding their appearance and backstory, if they've spoken of their history in-game.
  • In general, I prefer not to allow changes to characters with active roleplay history.

Post-Adoption Changes

  • Generally, you do not need my permission to do things with an adoptable. They are your character to develop however you want! c:
  • Some specific characters may have more stringent terms than this, such as requiring them to join a specific pack — double check on your particular adoptable's information to make sure!
  • For no characters am I looking to control every little aspect of our characters' interactions.
  • For some characters I may have stricter requirements about what I want out of them plot and thread-wise; I might require a thread for our characters to meet, or for a plot to be carried out, etc., but I'm okay with anything they do outside of that.
  • Please ask me first if you want to kill off a character! :c If you're simply bored of them, then I might re-adopt them out instead — but if it's an unimportant character, or one you've played a good long time and wish to be retired, then I'm more open to it.

Application

You must use the form if you are serious about adopting a character. I cannot adopt a character out to you unless you have used the form to indicate that you agree to my adoption terms. If you happen to chat with me and say "I want to adopt so-and-so" but do not follow through with sending me the official form, don't be surprised if I adopt so-and-so out to a different person who asks! Please contact me only by one of the two provided methods above.

Application Form

Stipulations

  • Your OOC name:
  • Character name:
  • Writing sample:
Required only if character term is strict.
  • Character interpretation:
Briefly summarize how you might intend to play their personality, motives, relationships, etc.
  • Plots or ideas you have for the character:
Briefly describe your plans regarding the character's family, conflicts, packs, etc.
  • Do you understand and agree to the contract terms in their entirety?:

I greatly appreciate and prefer adopters who are active and thoughtful roleplayers invested in their characters. I may not adopt to players who:

  • Constantly pick up, drop, and switch characters.
  • Consistently ask for adoptables, then fail to join with them.
  • Show severe streaks of inactivity or constant absenteeism.
  • Are new and struggle with board concepts, rules, and policies.
  • Break rules, fail to follow board-wide policies, or treat others discourteously.

But don't be intimidated! If you're interested, just ask c: I am always willing to try and work with you if you're genuinely interested in a character!
