Freeform

  • Coming soon!

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 are attached to a table that I've made, I can change the name.
  • Commissioned and bought art is considered your property. I will request your permission to use this art should you go inactive.
  • 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.

Re-Adoption

I have put a lot of work into my adoptables, even the ones with very relaxed contracts, so they mean quite a lot to me and this means I really want to see them with dedicated players. I may choose to re-adopt the character if you have:

  • dropped them for a long period of time (6+ months since character was dropped)
  • dropped them with only brief play (0 - 6 months, 0 - 100 posts, etc.)
  • dropped them with inadequate play (unfinished threads and plots, errors in interpreting pre-set character history or personality, etc.)
  • disappeared from or otherwise permanently departed 'Souls (2 years or more)
  • been permanently banned from 'Souls
  • broken a specific term of the adoption contract

Characters that were played for a long period of time and have lots of posts still return to my ownership. While I may not try to adopt these out again, they are likely to become my character's cNPC.

Pre-Adoption Changes

  • Changes can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Some characters can easily be changed while others may already have a lot of established development and will not.
  • I understand that character development just happens sometimes, but if it's your plan from the get-go to do or be something other than what I designed the character as, please tell me about it when you apply.

Post-Adoption Development

  • I fully expect characters to change over time! The only thing I like to see is that large changes in personality come from in-character developments over time. A shy, introverted character is unlikely to suddenly turn into an extrovert.
  • For no characters am I looking to control every little aspect of our characters' interactions. The only exception is killing the character. I strongly prefer that this doesn't happen.

Interested?

Please submit this form to me by one of the two provided methods. Once you are approved, I will send you my official contract spelling out all of the character-specific considerations. If you haven't sent the form, then I can't consider your interest to be official. Please do feel free to ask me any questions, though! I am available on aim and Skype -- PM me for my screennames! (I keep getting spam messages when I have my screennames out in public. Dx)

Application Form

  • OOC Name:
  • Character Name:
  • RP Sample(s):
    • Should be 200 words from the character's point of view
    • See the Terms for how many samples are needed.
    • If you would like prompts for this, please let me know and I will be happy to provide them!
  • Interpretation of the character: please be concise!
  • Plots/Ideas/Arcs:
  • Have you read, understood, and agree to the terms on my adoption page?:

Stipulations

I greatly appreciate adopters who are active roleplayers who are 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 the adoptable, or have a lot of adoptables lined up to pick up.
  • 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.
  • Break rules, fail to follow board-wide policies, or treat others discourteously.

Don't be intimidated. :) If you're interested, ask anyway -- the worst that will happen is a no, after all! I'm pickier about some characters than others.
