Congratulations! You are taking the first step required to get your role-playing game character up and running. Before we get to the create-a-character template there are some things that I want to go over before you start making that amazing character.
Character creation is an important aspect to any role-playing game, and good characters are not built on a simple template alone, or the length or depth of the character biography itself.
It is important to keep in mind that we highly encourage you going ALL out on a character sheet, but in the instance of character development, that is something that happens throughout the duration of the role-playing game, events will take place as the story progresses and all this content can be added to your character sheet for "fluff" if you want a bolstered character sheet that is!

There are some tid-bits of the Fukitsuna Character Creation process that you will find important, many of which can reflect how the character will go about their time in the role-play, or in many cases where they will start out at.
IMPORTANT: all characters will start off with a VERY LOW BASE VALUE, meaning, they will not be all powerful when they are first created, remember, this is a role-playing game. If we are all to be highly powerful right out the gate, it provides no challenge, no reward for completions and really ruins the entirety of the game itself! Keep it interesting and make your character fresh starting out!

Another important rule of thumb to keep in mind is, the building process itself.
People are always in the mood to create a character, but we want members to really CREATE a character for themselves.
The spirit of role-play and building a character you want is MAKING the character you want.
Take your time with the sheets, really put some important information in our requests!

For information on each portion of the information requested during the character sheet, I have included a small bit of help in the following for each question you will see on the character creator!

Basic Information Help;
Full Name is pretty self explanatory, we ask that your character AT LEAST have a First & Last Name, a middle name is optional
Nicknames & Titles This can be what your friends in the RP call you, Like Michael to Mike, or what job title you have (eg: Shogun Guard)
Gender here we are asking what gender you are, if you are a making a Meccian you will put in Meccian.
Age You will put your character age in this section, the role-play starts at 1300NA. So what you will do is take a calculator and minus your character age from 1300 to get your character age for the role-play.
Race / Homeland You can find a list of available races here, as for your homeland, you can refer to the Japah and Chenzhao maps here.

Character Appearance Help;
Most of the information are self added as you are building the character thought with
Physical Features we are asking that you place down a general overview of your character's looks. How they are built physically, how tall they are, give us a whole overview of their looks to help us better understand how they look!

General Character Information Help;
Place of Birth here, much like hometown, we are asking that you refer to the maps here and make a decision.
Group/Clan Affiliation Please refer to list of clans here, or you can place down Not clan Affiliated
Enemies here you can list particular members, a shogun or someone you just completely made up!
Wealth Status here we are asking your starting Yen, or what you have in your pockets or bank. Please keep it reasonable when starting out, 200 Yen at max for most users!

Character Abilities and Proficiency help;
Favored Weapon What weapon does your character most like to use?
Weapon Skill How well skilled in your character with this weapon? We ask that you have a moderate skill or low skill when first starting off, you can build this over time.
Magic Abilities Does your character have magic? Can it perform magic or use it in combat. If so please explain what that magic is. Also, we ask that you keep magic skills to a SMALL AMOUNT, we are a melee oriented!
Magic Strength How strong are you with magic abilities, again, keep it low!

Character History & Origin help:
History and Backstory What we are looking for here is a paragraph (at least) of your character's backstory, what they did in the past. Some examples you can place in your backstory is where they were born, parents names, activities they did as a child, some extra-curricular studies, training, skills, friends, social status, job performances, major moves, noteable activities that can give life to your character in this sheet.

Remember though, when finishing off your backstory, have them end up in some city within Japah, or some city with Chenzhao!

Have fun, and good luck making the best character you can!

For the code below, please COPY the information and make a NEW THREAD under CREATE-A-CHARACTER thread using your character's name as the topic title! For more information on this, please read the forum tutorial on how to post threads here
