"Resetting" a Character?

Postby Roland Eir on October 25th, 2017, 12:11 am

Hey, I was wondering if there was a way to reset or restart a character. Obviously I don't have a ton of posts with this guy, but they are from a while ago. Having to explain what he's been doing more or less on his own for the past few years doesn't work with the character concept I initially set up for him: someone naive about the world outside his home city and unable to survive on his own. I'd love to play with him again, but I was wondering if there was a way to just start over and maybe delete any previous posts he's had? Thanks!

As you have 57 posts you cannot right now rewrite Roland. You can retire him though. You would need to start a new PC to 'rewrite' Roland.

Until I have some free slots available I will not be taking on any new threads.
Thank you for understanding.

If I retire Roland and write up a new character that is the same concept, even going so far as to copy and paste elements of my character sheet, would that be allowed?

"Resetting" a Character?

Has Roland interacted at all IC with others? Because making an actual copy of a character that has interacted and already exists in Mizahar is a really weirdly meta thing to do. I suggest making a new character entirely rather than recycling him, especially if you are against continuing to write him in his current form.

He has, which is why I'm reticent to do this. I really, really enjoy his concept. Maybe you're right. Maybe I should just keep going. :)

Just remember to do your seasonal expenses, and then send him on his way into the world!
