Character sheet

From Mizahar Lore

Jump to: navigation, search

A character sheet (or CS for short) is, in essence, a thread created by the characters’ player that records all the relevant character’s information. Character sheets are mandatory and serve as a place to keep track of certain information about their Player Character (PC). And while only the bare bones essentials are required (Name, Age, Physical Description, Skills & Points, Ledger) players often use these character sheets to really portray who their characters are. They can be as simple as a single post that simply lists all the required facts, or they can be as complex and elaborate as a player wishes to make them. Players often give each section its own post, decorating it with frames, images, and even clip art that pertains to their character. We suggest you look around the Character Sheet Forum and see what others have done before creating your own! In addition, its always a great idea to place a link to your character sheet into your user profile or signature.

When creating a Character Sheet, being sure to consult the whole Starting Guide is a must! It's also recommended that you refer to your starting city's atlas/codex/guide.

Your character sheet is posted to the Character Sheets forum. When posting, be sure to make the New Topic subject the same as your character's name.

Various templates can be seen here.

Players can then submit their finished Character Sheet to the current character sheet review thread so a CS Liason or Storyteller can go over it.
