:3 Some characters might have more backstory or ideas to them, but others are far more open to interpretation. Please carefully read over the entire page before you contact me regarding any adoptables. :)

Thanks a lot to Sie for this template! <3

  • Note: I no adopt out to non-'Souls members (i.e., people who have not had a character at 'Souls yet).

1.  Contract Terms

  • Contract: Very Strict: This adoptable has some pretty strict terms, and I definitely want some pretty specific things out of them. I'm going to be very picky with who I allow to play this adoptable. Players with inactivity streaks, drop/pick-up, etc. may be denied.
  • Contract: Strict: This adoptable has some strict terms. I may want certain things out of them. I'm going to be moderately picky about who I allow to play this adoptable. Players may be approved if they have inactivity issues in the distant past.
  • Contract: Neutral: I'm neither strict nor relaxed with this adoptable.
  • Contract: Relaxed: This adoptable has some pretty open terms. I'm not going to be very selective in who I allow to play this adoptable.
  • Contract: Very Relaxed: This adoptable has some pretty open terms, and there may be opportunities for a new player to adjust their history, personality, or appearance.

2.3  Connections

If the character was presumed dead by kin in 'Souls, a plot with the roleplayer of the kin is advised right away if I, Bek, own that character. Any relations with family and friends in 'Souls will have to be played out as specified in the adoptable's contract. If no relation's (in a relaxed adoptable for say) it will be completely up to the player on who they interact with.


3.  Adoption Information

3.1  Pre-Adoption Changes

For characters without development (e.g., they have not appeared at 'Souls yet):

You are free to discuss pre-adoption changes to their history, appearance, etc. I'm typically open to such changes: however you find it most fun to play them, have at! 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.
E.g., if you're applying for one of my "darker" characters and you plan to take them in a more light-hearted direction from their outset, including edits to their history to make them less dark -- you should tell me about it when you apply!

For characters with development (e.g., they've 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.
E.g., if you're applying for an on-board NPC, it's generally not possible to make 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).

3.2  Post-Adoption Changes

  • Generally, you do not need my permission to do things with an adoptable. Develop your character how you want. ^^
  • 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 would be open to it.

4.  Re-Adoption

About

I work hard to make my adoptables shiny -- some of them come with a lot of junk! I also try to put thought into their appearances and biographies. So, in cases where a player doesn't stick around very long, I'm liable to find a new player. Generally, if you've adopted a character from me and you've dropped them or disappeared, please don't be terribly surprised if I find a new player.

Specific Terms

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 long period of time (6+ months since character was dropped)
  • dropped them with only brief play (0 - 5 months, 0 - 100 posts, etc.)
  • dropped them with inadequate play (unfinished threads and plots, errors in interpreting pre-set character history or personality, etc.)
  • been permanently banned from 'Souls
  • broken the adoption contact, e.g. violated a character's required stipulations
  • been deceptive in an attempt to obtain the adoptable, e.g. hiding identity

Your Stuff

  • 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...
    • ... 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 at any time.

5.  Interested?

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.

CONTACT

Private message me only if you are interested -- do not chat/IM me regarding adoptions. Please include:

  • Character: What character do you want to adopt?
  • A RP or other writing sample: Optional, but I may ask for a sample with the character in some cases.
  • Your interpretation of the character: Tell me how you might intend to play their personality, their motives, etc.
  • Any plots or ideas you've gotten for the character: Tell me what ideas you might have regarding the character's family, conflicts, packs, etc.
  • Have you read, understood, and agree to the contract terms on this page as well as the individual contract terms for this character?:

I do not require you to write a certain amount for each field. However, I am much more likely to adopt a character out to someone who is enthusiastic and goes above and beyond talking about their plans for the character! If you write only the bare minimum, it seems that you are not very serious about the character. (That said, if you only have a few ideas but want to discuss more plans with me, I am happy to talk to you about it!)

Some characters may require an additional writing sample or LASKY thread which will be discussed -- usually to set the relationship between certain characters, such as a currently attached cNPC, or gauge whether you fully understand the character.

5.1  Forewarning

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

  • Constantly pick up, drop, and switch characters.
  • Constantly ask for adoptables, then fail to join with the adoptable.
  • Show severe streaks of inactivity, constant absenteeism, etc.
  • Have adopted from me before, only to have the situation go awry in some way.
  • Have a history of OOC or IC issues (e.g., rule-breaking, discourteous behavior, dropped plots).
  • Are new and struggle with board concepts, rules, policies, etc., or are obviously very new to roleplay.

Additionally, I reserve the right to say "no" for any reason, even if it is not listed above. That said -- don't be intimidated! Please ask if you are interested. :> I am usually okay with second chances even if I say "no" the first time!

I'm pickier about some characters than others, as per the list above; for example, a character not integrated in my roleplay or plots are pretty much open season, whereas I might be considerably more selective in considering the player of a character's on-site child.
