Ann Adoptions

Hello, I am an Ann, and I really like to make lots and lots of new characters and them share them with lovely players! Below you will find everything you need to know -- please make sure you have read through the Adoption Information and the rest of this page before you contact me! I like to believe I am a laid-back adopter, so even if you're unsure of your approval for one of my shinies, ask me anyway! I don't bite, I promise<3 I also stole this template from several different people, muaha! (Love you!)

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 three writing samples of 200+ words each. (New members only)

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.

Interested?

CONTACT

(PREFERRED METHOD)
  • AIM: bann.anna

Contact me by one of the two provided methods. Please include:

  • Your preferred nickname:
  • Character:
  • A writing sample, 200+ words: Required ONLY for players who are not currently or previously active on 'Souls- if you are a past or present player, this is OPTIONAL. (Links to threads/posts are welcome!)
  • 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've gotten for the character: OPTIONAL!
  • If you are approved for the character, you will be contacted with an adoption contract that you must electronically agree to.

Forewarning

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

  • Are not a current member on the boards/are new to 'Souls
Many of my adoptables are complex, and I prefer players to already understand the general rules of the site prior to adopting from me
  • Constantly pick up, drop, and switch characters.
  • Who constantly ask for adoptables, then fail to join with the adoptable.
  • Show severe streaks of inactivity, constant absenteeism, 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 be intimidated! This is just a warning :) If you're interested, ask anyway -- the worst that will happen is a no, after all! I'm pickier about some characters than others, but it can't hurt to ask if you're interested!
