Rat's Character Adoptions

Looking to adopt a character with existing connections? I give you Rat's adoptables! I'm generally a pretty relaxed adopter; as long as you actually pick them up, and don't change their personality too drastically or too quickly, I'm usually fine with it. That said, communication is important to me, so don't be afraid to ask me about pre or post adoption changes or let me know if your timescale for picking someone up is delayed!

Featured Adoptable

  • Strict: I usually have a specific plot or arc in mind for these characters, and they may come with a lot of backstory.
  • Moderate: These characters come with some constraints and history. I'm usually open to discussing these things, but they're not freeform.
  • Relaxed: These characters are freeform and have few constraints. These are the adoptables who are most open to major pre and post-adoption changes.

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 writing samples or a test-drive in LASKY.

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 in a drastically different direction, 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 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! 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.

Application

Please make sure to use the form if you have serious interest in an adoptable. If you express a casual interest over AIM or chat but don't follow through with the form, don't be surprised if the character ends up being adopted to someone else! I strongly prefer email or PM contact for adoptable discussion.

Application Form

  • Your preferred OOC name:
  • Character name:
  • Writing sample:
    • Required only if character term is strict
    • Not required if you are a current 'Souls player
  • Your interpretation of the character:
    • Just a brief summary of how you might intend to play their personality, motives, relationships, etc.
  • Any plots or ideas you have for the character:
    • What are your plans regarding the character's family, conflicts, packs, etc.?
  • Do you understand and agree to the contract terms, both in general and with regards to the individual character?:

Stipulations

I greatly appreciate and prefer adopters who are active and thoughtful roleplayers 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 them.
  • Show severe streaks of inactivity or constant absenteeism.
  • Are new and struggle with board concepts, rules, and policies.
  • Break rules, fail to follow board-wide policies, or treat others discourteously.

But I don't bite! If you're interested, just ask c: I am always willing to try and work with you if you're genuinely interested in a character!
