Thanks a lot to Sie/Raze for letting Kitty steal this template, so I could steal it from her! <3

Adoption Key and Info

Player Contact

Strict

Moderate

Freeform

  • Private Message: Cleome Valentine
  • AIM/Email: marinaliz123@gmail.com
  • Discord: Liz_Bot#5025
  • Strict adoptables have a red tag
  • These characters are generally plot-intensive characters.
  • I will be looking for a player who is active and can write well in these cases, as well as those who show great commitment to plots!
  • I may ask for an example post or LASKY test-drive thread to get a feel for how you will play one of these characters
  • These are guaranteed plots and interaction!
  • Moderate adoptables have a orange tag
  • These characters are ones that might have a back story or plot opportunity that would require a bit of beforehand discussion, but are generally rather open for interpretation and don't have to adhere completely to the suggested points.
  • These are good characters for if you want a potential back story or plot to work off of, but not complete commitment.
  • They are guaranteed to have some minor relations, but no obligation to them!
  • Freeform adoptables have a green tag
  • These characters are ones that have only basic details; I generally am not picky in adopting these out, and most characters come with a ton of creative freedom!
  • These characters are for those who want to essentially make "their own" character but with ties to a particular family and opportunities for plots.

Other Adoptables

Sometimes characters of mine aren't listed here, but might be available for adoption; if something catches your eye, don't hesitate to ask! This includes any of the following:

  • Siblings or relatives of my existing characters which do not have players or wiki pages.
  • Creation of a new character into the Akreon family, or the Augustinia and the Charioteers packs.
  • NPCs of my characters may be available, even when they are not listed for adoption.

2.  Adoption Information

2.1  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, backstory, appearance, etc. with me. I'm usually open to such changes, but if you are taking a character into a different direction from the start, let's talk it out! Any changes that happen because of character development don't need to involve me, depending on the adopt!
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, and so on. 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).

2.2  Post-Adoption Changes

  • Generally, you do not need my permission to do things with an adoptable. Develop your character however you want.
  • Some specific characters may have more stringent terms than this -- double check on your particular adoptable's information to make sure you don't mis them!
  • 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.

3.  Re-Adoption

About

I work hard to make my adoptables shiny and pretty, I also put thought into their appearances and biographies. So, in cases where a player doesn't stick with them very long, it's likely I'll find a new player. I understand life happens and sometimes we need a break/hiatus, and that's perfectly fine, but if that's the case please let me know. If you've adopted a character from me and you've dropped them or disappeared, please don't be surprised if I reclaim them and give them to a new player :c

Specific Terms

I may choose to re-adopt the character if you have:

  • been removed in an activity sweep and have not answered my contact after 2 weeks
  • dropped them for a long period of time (6+ months since character was dropped)
  • dropped them with only brief play (0 - 3 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 a specific term of the adoption contract (e.g., if I stipulated character X must join pack A and you take them to pack B instead)

Additionally, please note that after acceptance of adoption, player has up to a maximum of 2 weeks to pick the character up or i will reclaim.

Your Stuff

  • All baubles (art, titles, icons, etc.) originally given with the adoptable return with the character.
  • Gift art and gift graphics are considered reclaimable with the adoptable; some 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 at any time.

4.  Interested?

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

  • Your preferred nickname:
  • Character:
  • A RP or other writing sample (e.g., from a previous game): Not necessary if you currently play at 'Souls.
  • 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!
  • Have you read, understood, and agree to the contract terms as well as the individual contract terms for this character?:

5.  Forewarning

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

  • 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.

Fear not, t'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!
