Hello! It looks like you've found my adoptables page - Are you looking for an exciting new character to play? If so, please read on!

My adoptables usually stem from characters/families/plots that I am directly involved with, and as such they often have pre-designed connections to help you jump right in to tasty RP. I also love to create visual designs for characters, so most all of my adoptables come with concept art in some form or another. Some characters are made to fill a key role in an overarching plot and might have detailed backstory or ideas to them, whilst others are far less complex and more open for personal interpretation. Please carefully read over my adoption information below before you contact me regarding interest in any of these chumps.

If you have any other questions, or need information that is not specified below, please shoot me a PM - I don't bite! ❤

FREEFORM

MODERATE

STRICT

  • Colour: Freeform adoptables have a green tag.
  • Constraints:
- Freeform characters have minimum constraints, and are perfect for adopters who want to have full creative control over their character.
- New members or members who already have a high number of characters are welcome to apply for freeform adoptables.
  • Lineage Rights:
- Player may do whatever they choose in relation to this character having offspring! No discussion required.
  • Colour: Moderate adoptables have an orange tag.
  • Constraints:
- Moderate characters have some constraints, and are perfect for adopters who like a little guidance when growing into their character.
- New members or members who already have a high number of characters are welcome to apply for freeform adoptables, but preference may be given to current members and those with fewer active characters already in play.
  • Lineage Rights:
- There is unlikely to be any restriction on this character having offspring, but individual adopts may have other specifications in their contract.
  • Colour: Strict adoptables have a red tag.
  • Constraints:
- Strict characters have explicit constraints. They are best suited to experienced players who want a challenge.
- Only current or returning members will be considered for these adoptables. Players with a high number of characters are less likely to be chosen - these characters are intended to be primary, secondary or tertiary in priority.
  • Lineage Rights:
- There is likely to be restrictions on this character's offspring, possibly due to their bloodline. Their individual contract will outline this.

PRE-ADOPTION & POST-ADOPTION CHANGES

Pre-Adoption Changes - For characters without development (no on-board history)
You are free to suggest pre-adoption changes to their history, backstory, appearance, etc. I'm pretty relaxed about this, though of course it may depend on the specifics of the character being adopted. I understand that character development just happens organically, but if it's your plan from the get-go to take a character a drastically different direction than I had envisioned in the adoptable's pre-existing info, I think it is polite to let me know beforehand!

Example: if you're applying for an 'evil-ish' characters and you plan to take them in a more lighthearted direction from their outset, including edits to their history to make them less of a bad guy - you should tell me about it when you apply!

Pre-Adoption Changes - For characters with development (with on-board history)
Changes may not be possible for characters who have already been active on the boards, especially regarding their appearance and backstory if it has been shown/discussed by characters in-game. In general, I prefer not to allow drastic changes to characters with active roleplay history.

If a character has been played by another player on the boards, I encourage the character's new owner to mostly pick up where the previous one left off. It's simpler that way!

Example: if you're applying for an on-board NPC, it's generally not possible to make drastic changes to them, as they're on-board and an "active" character (not in the sense that they have a player, but they're actively partaking in the game).

Post-Adoption Changes
I don't like to police what happens to a character after they have been adopted - so long as changes happen organically and in a way that doesn't undermine the spirit of the adoptable, do what you want! I love when adopters get creative with their characters, and I'm a hopeless creeper on adoptables I've made once they are being played. The only situation which may warrant some caution is if the character is a strict adoptable, or the character has specific terms to its adoption. You will be informed prior to adopting a character as to whether or not it has specific terms, so don't stress over this!

As with anything regarding one of my adoptables: If you are not sure about something, just ask :>

RECLAIMING & RE-ADOPTING

I really enjoy giving my adoptables art and shiny baubles to help you visualize their character, and to entice other adopters. This means that some of them come with a lot of extras: Art, pixels, written descriptions, wiki layouts or even full biographies! These things take plenty of time and effort to create, and I do it out of the love of making something new and seeing it brought to life. It does mean, however, that it can break my heart a little bit when adoptable characters I have made fall into disuse/misuse - In this event, I'm likely to want to find them a new active player! Below are the situations which may warrant me taking back an adoptable from its previous adopter, so that it can find a new loving home.

Specific Terms
I may reclaim and/or re-adopt the character if you have:

  • Been removed in an activity sweep (I will normally give you time to contact me after this, and like to be pretty flexible on it - we all have bad months, and that's OK! Just make sure you get in touch with me ASAP so we can discuss it.)
  • Dropped them for a long period of time without consultation (6+ months since character was dropped)
  • Dropped them with only brief play (0 - 5 months, 0 - 100 posts, etc.)
  • Been banned from 'Souls; Permanently OR temporarily.
  • Broken a specific term of the adoption contract (e.g., if I stipulated prior to adoption that the character must join Salsola, and you take them to Inferni instead)
  • Taken an extended period of time to actively play the adoptable (unless discussed otherwise, I expect the character to be actively played within no longer than 2 months of their adoption)

Player Goods

  • All baubles (art, wikipage, titles, icons, etc.) originally provided with the adoptable return to my possession when reclaimed.
  • Gift art and gift graphics are considered reclaimable with the adoptable unless the artist specifies otherwise; Exceptions made with discussion.
  • Commissioned and bought art is considered your property. It's up to you if you wish to allow new users to use commissioned art.
  • Titles and icons...
... earned via game points, contests, etc. are considered your property; However, you must request removal/transfer in a timely manner after dropping the adoptable or they become property of the new player.
... purchased via the 'Souls store are considered your property and may be removed/transferred to your own character.
  • If you are not in contact or at all contactable, purchased titles will be removed without notice, and it is your responsibility to discuss re-claiming them from the SA.

APPLICATION FORM

WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL ADOPTER?

If you are interested in adopting one of the listed characters, please contact me via one of the methods listed at the top of this page.

Please include the following information in your application:

Your preferred name/alias: Player name
Character: Name of the adoptable you are applying for
A single writing example as the adoptable character: Optional - A single paragraph is fine, I don't need an essay!
Your interpretation of the character: No need to be overly wordy here -- just tell me how you might intend to play their personality, their motives, etc.
Any plots or ideas you have for the character: Optional
Have you read, understood, and agree to the contract terms on my adoption page as well as the individual contract terms for this character?: YES/NO
When will you be actively joining with the character?: An estimate is fine - be sure to update me if your timeline changes

I greatly appreciate adopters who are patient, reliable and active roleplayers, etc. I may not adopt to players who:

  • Are not a current member on the boards/are new to 'Souls
- For moderate to strict adoptables, I prefer players who already understand the general rules of the site prior to adopting from me.
  • Constantly pick up, drop, and switch characters.
  • Constantly ask for adoptables, then fail to join with the adoptable in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Show repeated streaks of prolonged inactivity, constant absenteeism without notice, etc.
  • Are not going to join with the adoptable as soon as possible.
  • Have adopted from me before, only to have the situation go awry in some way.

Don't stress too much about this! It's all common sense stuff. If you're interested, please be sure to ask - The worst thing that can happen is nothing at all, so ❤
