Receiving Feedback

To allow you to develop your new character, it's always good to write things down. For this purpose, we allow you to create a new topic within this section; to gain feedback on your character; and to help you in developing them further. You may title this topic whatever you like, but the name of your character is always a good start.

Character Development topics are also a great way for other role-players to find information, be it out of interest for your character, or simply to see if a future role-play might be possible with their characters, and yours. You may also use this topic to build a profile of your character, and over time, understand where you wish to take them during their existence.

If you are new to the community, this may seem really exciting to you. So with this in mind, you do not have to rush your development topic and post as soon as you register; we recommend you take a day or two to think about the answers and information you wish to share. :D

As much as we would love to see detailed development topics with reasons for your choices, how much information you wish to write about your character is completely up to you. If you feel something is worth noting, simply add it to your post. If you don't know what to write, this is where other users can help you; by asking various questions about your character.

You can choose to reply to these questions either in-character or out-of-character, but do try and reply. Posting in-character may help in their over-all development too.

Because we are lovely people, we have provided a template for you, which may help in starting the development of your character:
