Creating A Character
GUIDEBOOK
Creating a Character




Must Reads!

We do have rules that are very important to know when joining our game. Please read them first, so you know what you're getting into! Rules & Frequently Asked Questions

As well, it is a very good idea to read about our species, keeping in mind that each species has individual characteristics that you will be required to know to properly create your character. If it states that a species has a certain body type, that is the only body type that is allowed, as well as certain types of coloring to the pelt and other details. 



Create An Account

We are an account per character site, so for each character you wish to play, you will need another account. Our forum is set up so that you may use the same email address for all of your accounts, and your accounts may also be linked via an option in your User CP so that you may switch from account to account without logging out and logging back in again. 

Your character's account name should be ONLY the name of your character and nothing else. There should be no special "symbols" in your name such as exclamation points or other non-name symbols. You may use just your character's first name, or their full name, should they have a middle and a last name.  Please note that we are not a "Warriors" forum, using the "Warriors" naming convention for your character is not recommended. 

You are not required to have an OOC account, but you may if you wish. 



Craft Your Character

Once you have created your account, start filling out your profile. To do this, go to User CP > Edit Profile. The link to the User CP is underneath your account name in the top right corner of the forum.

You must fill in values for the sex, species, class, height and weight appropriate to your species, mutations (if you are taking any as freebies or are spending crowns on another character after your first), and the three 'detailed' areas of the profile: description (bare minimum, you must give the primary color of your wolf's pelt), personality, and history.  Keep in mind that if you wish to provide links to references, or a voice claim, you must do so using proper html to provide a clickable link. More information on how to do this can be found Here!

In your history, it is required to mention whether your character has come to these lands via a portal or is a native of these lands. Characters are allowed to come to these lands via a sorcerous portal that has ripped them from their old world into this one, or they may have lived around these lands their entire lives. Please take a look at the Creating a New Character In Our Setting information for further elaboration on this.

There are no length requirements for any of these fields.

Your character may not have been originally born a human or have any advanced knowledge on humans or the human world. Humans are not a large part of Sverige, and there are no plans for them ever to be. If they have come through a portal from a place where humans were a large part of the world, they will have forgotten all of it when they get here.

You get either two skills, two mutations, or one of each for free when you create a new character. You may not choose a sub-skill of another skill as a starting skill, as the requirement to have a sub-skill is to have an apprentice level in the "parent" skill. You also may not "level" a skill up to another level with one of your free things, as all skills require xp gained in character to level up.

Once you have finished filling out the profile, create a thread in this board. The title of the thread should only be the name of your character, and the message will only need to include which two free starters they will be getting. When you have posted the thread, an email notification will be instantly sent to the admin, and your application will be looked over next time she is doing admin duties. Calico, the admin, generally looks over applications in the early mornings, Eastern Standard Time.

RE: Creating A Character


Profile Guide

Our profiles are huge and contain all the information important for your character. If you need help understanding what to enter in some of these fields, please continue reading below!


Sex: Does your character have male or female parts? 

Played By: This should be your OOC name- what you go by, what you use in the cbox, what you use when you claim a name or voice, what you want us to call you! Please DO NOT use different names for all of these- it is extremely confusing! Please pick one thing to call yourself and put it here!

Date of Birth: This is the date of birth for YOU, OOCly. This is optional. 

Date of Birth Privacy: Do you want others to see this or not?

Character Name: This should be the full name of your character.

Aliases: Does your character use any false names or have any nicknames? For example, if your character's name is Rosie but they often go incognito as someone named Thorn, you would write 'Thorn' in the line.

Sexuality: This field is optional. If you want, let us know if your character is straight, gay, pansexual, etc.

Species: Select the species of your character. You cannot create NPCs, so that is not something you should select.

Class: Is your character a mage, rogue, or a warrior? Keep in mind that each species has a designated class. The 'classless' option is for NPCs and beasts only, not for wolves.

Born: Select from the drop-down box which season your character was born in. This cannot be changed once your character is accepted, and every time the season comes around again in character, you should age your character by one year.

Age: How old is your character? This should be in years, not moons or seasons or anything else. Please do not include half years, either. Keep in mind that the youngest you can create a character is six months, and that they will likely have to join a pack or group in order to survive until they reach adulthood.

Height: In inches, tell us how tall your character is. Remember that each species has a limit on how tall (or short) they can be.

Weight: In pounds, tell us how much your character weighs. Remember that each species has a limit on how much (or little) they can weigh.

Eyes: Describe the shape and color(s) of your character's eyes. If they are missing an eye or have some other damage done to them, include that here. Optional field.

Nose: What color is your character's nose? Optional field.

Tongue: What color is your character's tongue?  Optional field.

Paw Pads: What color(s) are your character's paw pads? Optional field.

Claws: What color(s) are your character's claws? Optional field.

Markings: Does your character have any special markings? You can describe them in detail here, or write a brief description if you would like to go into more detail in the detailed physical description section.

Scars: You can briefly describe (if you go into more detail in the physical description section), or go into detail, about your character's scars here. Optional field.

Scent: Describe what your character smells like. Keep in mind these should only be natural smells, and described as a wolf would know them. Optional field.

Voice: Even though our wolves make "wolf sounds" and the speech we write is for the human role-players, you are still able to describe what you feel like your wolf's bark/howl/etc. sounds like. Describe your character's voice, and/or include the name of a celebrity whose voice you are using with a link to an example of their voice. Use HTML to do this! <*a href="URL">link (remove the asterisks) Please note that if you put only the URL in and do not make it a link, you will be asked to fix it.

Mutations: Describe the mutations your character has. Include the name of the mutation, and then what it means for your character. Example, if your character has the knobby mutation and it gives them ram horns, you would say: "Knobby: so-and-so has a pair of ram horns growing from the top of their head." Do not put the skills your character has here. This IS a required field!

Detailed Physical Description: Describe in detail what your character looks like, you MUST at least elaborate on what your wolf's pelt's major color is. You may not simply insert an image, as not every user will be able to see it properly.

References:  Do you have any references or artwork of your character? Include a link to them here. Use HTML to do this! <*a href="URL">link (remove the asterisks) Please note that if you put only the URL in and do not make it a link, you will be asked to fix it.

Alignment: This can be how your character sees themself or how you see them, but your choice should reflect whether your character is good, bad, or somewhere in between.

Likes: What does your character like? This is entirely optional.

Dislikes: What does your character dislike? This is entirely optional.

Fears: What is your character afraid of? This is entirely optional.

Strengths: What is your character good at? What makes them strong? This is optional.

Weaknesses: What is your character bad at? What makes them weak? This is optional, though of course that does not mean your character can have no weaknesses at all.

Detailed Personality Description: Describe your character's personality in detail. 

Member Since: To be filled in only if your character is in one of the currently available in character packs. Input the season your character joined the pack, and the in-character year. For example: Spring, year one.

Former Allegiances: Referring only to packs that are in the game (not packs your character might have been a part of before becoming part of Sverige), put any packs your character was previously a member of here. For example, Villan was a member of Orior, but then he left. In this field, he would put Orior.

Detailed History: There are no length requirements here, however we ask that you at least let us know if your character is a native of Sverige or if they entered the world through a portal.

Current Threads: What threads is your character currently in? Be sure to use HTML! <*a href="URL">link (remove the asterisks) This is optional. You do not have to keep track of your threads here, or at all.

Complete Threads: What threads has your character completed? Be sure to use HTML! <*a href="URL">link (remove the asterisks) This is optional. You do not have to keep track of your threads here, or at all.

Mother: Who is your character's mom? This is optional, unless your character was born ICly.

Father: Who is your character's dad? This is optional, unless your character was born ICly.

Siblings: Does your character have any siblings? This is optional, unless your character was born ICly.

Mate(s): Include any mates your character has had. These are not characters yours has had sex with, but those they were in a serious and dedicated relationship with.

Pups: If your character is a parent, list their puppies here.

Friends: You can keep track of your character's friends here, if you want. This is not required.

Enemies: You can keep track of your character's enemies here, if you want. This is not required.

Mini-Profile Avatar: That picture that you hover over and it disappears? Yeah, that's this. Input the URL to your image here. It needs to be exactly 675px wide by 175px tall, and should be of your character- nothing else!

Level Up: The total amount of XP you need to earn in order to unlock a new skill or level up- your XP goal. If you input this number in, when the admin adjusts your XP, the purple bar below your health, stamina and mana will increase or decrease accordingly.

OOC Location: Where in the world do you live? This is optional.

OOC Bio: Tell us a bit about you, if you'd like!
