» player information
PLAYER: Self explanatory.
TIMEZONE: For contacting purposes, so that we know when is the best time to reach you at any given time. For our purposes we would highly suggest you add in the UTC +/- along with your regular timezone.
CONTACT: Plurk is preferred, but feel free to list your Discord, AIM, or any other contact information here.
» character information
NAME: Character’s name, nickname, or whatever alias they go by.
CANON: List the character’s canon here. If the character is an original character, please list it as “original canon”, along with the canon’s name, if applicable. If you're taking the character from another roleplay, please list that game along with their original canon.
CANON POINT: Please list what timepoint you are pulling your character from. It is highly suggested that you be as specific as possible. Writing that you are taking characters after a certain episode, chapter, novel, etc., is also fine.
HISTORY: For canon characters, you are free to link to a website outside of Dreamwidth (Wikipedia or TV Tropes are completely fine) as long as the history is sufficient. If not, please type at least four paragraphs of the history section. Bullet points are also fine as long as they describe sufficiently the history of the character that you are applying for. If you decide to use bullet points, we suggest at least 15 concise ones minimum.
For original characters, we expect at least five to six paragraphs minimum for the history section. Please explain the world they came from as well as the character’s history. What we are looking for in this section for original characters is both originality and depth.
PERSONALITY: For this section, we would like for you to be brief, but concise, as this is one of the most important sections in the application. We would like this section to be around 500-1000 words maximum if you're playing a canon character, and 1500 words maximum if you're playing an original character. As stated in our answer in the FAQ, it is perfectly fine if you go under (as it is a maximum, not a minimum) or a little over; we will not reject you based off of that. Rather, what are we looking for are how your character grows over time, how they act towards other people, along with strengths and weaknesses. Basically, things that you feel about their personality that might be important for us to know about them in a murdergame setting.
ABILITIES: Whatever abilities your character may have in canon, magical or otherwise. Please list them and explain what each ability does in full detail. Remember that characters will not have their abilities at the beginning of the game!
REGAINS: Please list up to ten possible physical regains - outside of any abilities - that you would like to regain.

Note: This section is completely optional, and you're free to skip it entirely if you wish.
MAGICAL NAME: Feel free to come up with something as silly or as clever as you'd like! If you want them to stick with their original name, just put "N/A". If you want us to choose the name, just put "RNG".
MAGICAL FORM: This will be the form they transform into. It does not have to be elaborate and can be as simple or as creative as you want. You can have males turn into magical girls and vice versa. Or you can have them stick to your gender too, if you wish. For those who come from magical boy/girl canons, feel free to also link images if you wish to use those instead of giving them a new form.
» plot information
Would you like to be the traitor? Y/N, please list why your character would be good as the traitor. If you would like to be the traitor and your character wouldn't be good as it, feel free to list why you would want them to be the traitor and what possible ways they can be blackmailed into being one.
Would you like your character to be killed first? Y/N. Saying yes will increase your chances of getting rolled on week one.
