Name: Create a name for your character. Character names should follow the general Country traits found here unless there is an IC reason for this to be otherwise.

Country Affiliation: What country is your character currently affiliated with? A map of the current countries may be found here. If you click on the map, it will lead you to the corresponding Country page for the area you clicked on. If he or she isn't related to one then put down "Wanderer".

Race: The race may determine what your face claim should look like. Each race has its own perks and downsides. More on races can be found here.

Tier: Everyone starts out at D-Tier [Novice]. See the Rank systems for more information on tiers here.

Class: Every character starts with a primary class. The different types of classes may be found here. If your Class is Magician, state your starting Magic Type as well. Magic and their various Types may be found here.

Age + Birthdate: How old is your character? What day and month were they born on? (Year they were born on is not needed)

Gender: Male or Female?

Sexuality: What gender(s) or race(s) is your character attracted to romantically? You can be Heterosexual, Homosexual, Bisexual, or any other sort of sexual orientation which comes to mind. If you are completely uninterested in romance, or just don't know what you want it to be, feel free to fill that out here as well.

Personality: Explain everything about the way your character reacts to his or her surroundings. How do they act on a normal basis? How do they treat other people? This should be at least 200 words in length.

Likes: What does your character like? Include at least 2 likes, with at least 1 sentence for each that explains the like and why they like it.

Dislikes: What does your character dislike? Include at least 2 dislikes, with at least 1 sentence for each that explains the dislike and why they dislike it.

Aspirations: Aspirations are what drives your character. An aspiration should be a goal that your character wants to reach, one that is not within their immediate reach. You need at least one well explained one, or three smaller ones. It would be good to explain what your character aspires to become or to reach, as well as how they intend to take the first steps towards reaching their aspirations. Needs to be at least 75 words minimum

Phobias/fears: Phobias and fears are things that your character are terrified of and afraid of. You need at least one well explained one, or between one and three smaller ones. The explanation should contain things like how they came to be afraid of it and what they would do when confronted with it. Fears are not always rational, and do not have to have a reason why you are afraid of something, however this section must be at least 75 words in length.

Face-Claim: Each character has a face-claim. No two characters may share a face-claim without being twins. You may not use face-claims from Magi, nor from real life. They must be kept to OC drawings, Anime, Manga and Video Games. A list of face-claims that are currently taken may be found here.

Hair Color: What color is your hair? In the event of your race being a Fanalis, this should be red. In the event of your race being an Imuchakk, this should be blue.

Eye Color: What color are your eyes?

Height: How tall are you? This is to be in centimeters, however you may post it in ft./in. in parenthesis () as well.

Weight: How much does your character weigh? This measurement should be in kilograms. You are free to post this in pounds as well in parenthesis ().

Appearance: Write at least 100 words on what your character looks like. The types of things that this covers are things such as what they wear, what their normal body language looks like, as well as how they show their emotions through their body language.

Rukh Alignment: What kind of Rukh is attracted to your character? White Rukh is attracted towards those who live according to the flow of fate. They don't resent what's happened to them and have hope to build a better future for themselves and others around them. Black Rukh surrounds people who resent their past and have cursed their own fate and develop dark intentions for others. If you do not mind spoilers, the Magi Wiki has a good explanation on the two types of Rukh here. However, the actual Rukh System is located here.

Special Features: Is there anything strange about your character? Do they have a tail for some reason even though they're human? Is there some strange condition he or she has, like multiple personalities or voices speaking in his or her head?

History: Write a background for your character. Where did he or she come from? What happened in their life to bring them to where they are now? This should be a minimum of 350 words in length.

Role-Play Sample: This is where you get to show us your role playing skills. We're looking for something AT LEAST 100 words long. You can go over that amount as much as you wish! Keep in mind that nothing you put in your rp sample is considered "Canon" meaning it never happen in-character.

Now that you have finished your character, you may begin on the creation of your starter item. This would be a weapon for Warrior, Ranger and Assassin users, a Staff/Stave/Wand for Magicians users and a Beast for Beast Tamers.

Weapon Smithing is done in The Bazaar [OOC Shop] -> Merchant's Alley -> Hakim's Smithy -> Weapon Smithing. You will post a topic here using the template for your appropriate weapon that is posted in this part of the forum to be approved by staff.

Staff/Stave/Wand creation is done in The Bazaar [OOC Shop] -> Merchant's Alley -> Old Wizard's Arcane Shop -> Staff Creation. You will post a topic here using the template for the Staff/Stave/Wand that is posted in this part of the forum to be approved by staff.

Creation and adoption of your beast for Beast Tamers users is done in The Bazaar [OOC Shop] -> Merchant's Alley -> Ivan's Animal Emporium -> Beast Adoption. You will post a topic here using the template for the Beast that is posted in this part of the forum to be approved by staff.

Now that the Character and Weapon/Magoi Conduit/Beast have both been created, it is time to register your starter abilities. You may begin with 5 starter abilities for your primary class. During character creation, you may have briefly read into the different classes when making a decision on which you would like to pick.

Everything Ability related may be found in the sticky topics located here . This includes examples of abilities in each class thread, as well as templates and guidelines for the abilities.

Once you have decided what you want your abilities to be, post them in a new topic in the Room of Fortitude [Creation Center] -> Abilities/Traits. This is located here (same part of the forum the sticky topics are in for ability guidelines and templates). Once approved, starter abilities will be moved to the 'Trained Abilities' sub-forum located here and will be ready for use in character.

When you are ready to register additional abilities beyond your starters, they will need to be approved as well in the same place. Once approved, these abilities will be moved to the 'Approved For Training' sub-forum, found here. The difference between starter abilities and non-starter abilities is that you must train your non-starter abilities in character. Once they have been trained, post a link of the training in the topic where your abilities were approved in order for your character to be able to use the new ability.

While it is not necessary to have your weapons or abilities registered in order to roleplay, it is not suggested to enter combat situations without these things. You may start out in any area, regardless of your nationality. Good luck out there, and have fun!
