Keep In Mind (Character Suggestions/Guideline)

 

  • Your character's personal traits (These do not need to be specifically defined but are something to keep in mind):
    • Your character's age and physical/mental abilities. Are you too old to be running as long and as hard as you have been? Does it make sense to be able to?
  • Avoid bringing in characters with predetermined stories that do not respect foundations laid by other players/characters: 
    • A new character should not come into the city already heading a crime family/gang. They do not have those connections, relationships or stories to build from.
  • Your story is not about winning, rather about playing a part and strengthening the story for all involved be it winning or losing.
  • Magical & Sci-Fi: Magical and Sci-Fi characters are not permitted, you are starkly human. (No Theoretical Science) This rule will go into effect on 7/1
  • Characters employed by LSPD, EMS, LSFD should avoid willingly breaking the law, this may result in termination from the role.
