    Name: Anna [Administrative Level Requirement: 2, Reference: 1] Thesia

    Age: 32

    Appearance: 5' 4", somewhat pale, straight black hair, green eyes. Typically seen abroad in a labcoat.

    Personality: Warm, though somewhat dry and crisp. She occasionally strays into the realm of pretension, especially when under pressure. Inquisitive.

    Backstory: Born and raised in [ALR: 3, R:2], she performed well in early predilection examinations in resource management and medical science. She advanced farther in the former than the latter. Anna achieved certification only as a nurse, specializing in the fields of chemical administration and anesthesiology. When she turned 22, she began formal [ALR:3, R:3] training, with emphasis on [ALR:4,R:4], having been groomed as a potential over the years based on early employment scoring examinations. Her distinctive service touring in [ALR:4, R:5] afforded her rapid promotion, and distinctive honors. Her second tour positioned her as the direct subordinate of [ALR:3, R:6], and secured her next tour of duty in New York when the need called for it.

    First Tour:

    During her first tour, the settlement she was stationed in came under attack. Several were wounded, and she worked with rapid efficiency to ensure there were no fatalities. Famously, in one instance she improvised defibrillation utilizing a pair of metallic clock-hands and a laser pistol. When the [REDACTED] landed en-mass in the area and began to destroy settlements, she was withdrawn. During her time there she secured a number of resources which were retrieved for further study.

    Second Tour:
    Based out of [ALR;4, R:7], she was instrumental in the negotiations regarding the acquisition of [ALR;4, R:8], securing the first major population center in the region. Until recalled to serve in New York, she maintained a position as an indirect representative there, her influence and insight bringing new life into the town, though her success was somewhat limited somewhat by the presence of the [ALR:5,R:9].

    She has one sibling, and estranged brother who lives in the NCR named Phillip. Her mother works in an administrative department, and her father is an engineer. Her mother supports her career, though her father does not, wishing she wouldn't place herself in the line of fire. Neither of them are aware of the specifics.

    We'll start with your first section, and if you fix that up I'll give you notes on your backstory, and how you can change it to be approved.

    Definition of meta gaming:Meta gaming is the use of information which the player has found out about while not in character (OOC) and are using it while in character. (this includes motives and actions)[/b]

    Definition of power gaming: Power gaming is when a player forces a move and/or a reaction out of/on another character or situation.[/b]


    These definitions look like you've just copy/pasted them, if not then my apologies. We ask this question because they are the two cardinal sins of RP, and if you don't have at least a basic understanding of them, you're gonna have a bad time.


    What is your past experience in RP, Fallout or otherwise?: rp games and I was part of a Shadow of Israphel reanactment, I played Skyrim & Fallout 3 and new vegas[/b]


    We don't particularly count playing the games as experience, but it is helpful that you have a basic familiarity with the lore. Can you expound on what RP games you've played in the past?


    IC:[/b]

    Name: Kay[/b]

    Age: 18[/b]

    Appearance: Kay has a trench coat, a PIP Boy, his father gave him, which was his before. He has black hair, he is African American. He has black eyes. And to the naked eye, he looks kind, with his smile. He is a skinny person, he's not very strong, but he is agile and is good with a long range gun, but can also[/b]


    In general, unless he comes from a vault we don't allow PIP boys to come with characters as they join. If they do, we like a very good explination for where it comes from. You can cut everything past "and is" in the last sentence.


    Personality: A bright mind tainted by the wasteland,happily cynical, grumpy, and Proud. He never forgets what people do. He is too sided. He loves Nuka Cola and snack cakes. He is trying to find something worth fighting for in the Apple or something to invest in. He loves to push people and is quick to anger. He is also a little paranoid and sometimes hears thing that arent there. He is willing to do anything to survive. Falls into random flashes of Depression.[/b]


    From what you're describing, I'm not getting a good picture of the character. On the one hand, he looks happy, and is a bright mid, but on the other he is quick to anger, paranoid, and is randomly depressed. Try and come up with something a little more cohesive.


    Beyond that, firm up your spelling/grammar, and try again.

    Hello again, Sam. We're all familiar with your work, and the whitelist chat has had a talk, and we'd rather you weren't on the server. On a personal note, I do hold you partially responsible for the closing of Iron Hearts. I could be more specific as to why that is, but I'd rather highroad you instead by saying I'm sure you'd rather not have your dirty laundry aired in public. I wish you the best of luck in finding another community, this one is just not ready to take you back yet.

    I appreciate you giving this another try. The quality here is much higher than your previous attempt. What we're looking for in a backstory is information from the character's past which reveals details on how the character responds to various situations. If this were the backstory for the aunt you mention, it would make a lot more sense. If you could make it a little more of an oversight of what has happened so far in you character's life, and the decisions she's made rather than one specific situation I don't see any reason why I couldn't approve you. Some questions you might want to answer are where she came from, her strategies for overcoming conflict (not necessarily combat), and what her plans are for her future.

    @worldhero


    We're not huge fans of dead parent backstories, and yours raises some questions in particular. How was his mother exposed to that amount of radiation in a vault?
    What experiments do you refer to?

    How do you plan to have a character survive in the harsh wasteland of New York with dementia and a vulnerability to the sun?

    What is the point of including the crazy plan when the vault was just opened?
    New Jersey is underwater, we'd prefer if you picked an unspecified vault outside of New York to have him emerge from.

    We want more of what your character's motivations and what has made him what he is in your backstory, rather than a jumble of attributes. It's an interesting character, please re-write some of those details and resubmit.

    "With The help of Ana's kind brother they successfully impregnated Kass... exactly where it might lead them."

    I was with you up until this point. This section smacks of RP you've done in the past with this character, which I fully support, however you're going to need to strip several parts from your backstory ranging from towns which don't appear in our canon to her sudden, immense gain of wealth. Your backstory also raises several questions which aren't answered, the first of which is why she can't find a sister whose name is spread across the waste. I'd love to see a reworked version of this which is a little more conservative and is more in line with the details of a character who would just be starting out, and how she wound up in New York I'm going to turn you down, but you're welcome to revise and reapply, and I'm sorry it took so long for us to get back to you.

    (Posting this on behalf of a player that's having login issues with MCforums, this is not an application I wrote)

    **Out of Character**

    IGN:

    Dylanduran

    Age:

    16

    How did you find us?:

    I discovered this server by word of mouth, a few friends of mine kept telling me about this server, so I thought I'd have a look at what it has to offer. As it seems to be a really good server (not to mention based on the Elder Scrolls, which I love) I thought I should give it a go.

    What Roleplay experience do you have?

    I've RP'ed a LOT over the past few years (been into it since I was 11) in games such as WoW at first, but then moved on to more advanced means of roleplay (I attend D&D meetings fairly often, which are a blast). I think I started roleplaying in minecraft around two years ago, and have since played on multiple RP servers such as LotC, Heroes of Galderon, and Rise of Kings (those are the only ones I remember, there may have been others).

    Define Meta-gaming in your words:

    Meta-gaming is a term used to describe the use of knowledge gained from a source outside the 'game' in order to better fulfill your character's needs. For example, if I was talking to a group of people who were also playing on this server, and asked them exactly where they were, and then headed to their location ingame, that would be considered as metagaming, though there are more extreme examples.

    Define Power-gaming in your words:

    Power-gaming is an odd term that can mean a lot of different things, though I believe the main form of power-gaming would be when you 'force' your actions upon another player without their consent. An example of this would be:

    *John stabs Jack in the chest, killing him instantly*

    When the better course of action would be:

    *John attempts to stab Jack in the chest*.

    However, power-gaming could also refer to you 'power-leveling' your character to a practically immortal state, though I'll still stick with the above example as that would come under God-modding.

    Define God-Modding in your words:

    As I briefly mentioned above, God-modding is the act of making your character much 'better' than everyone else, either by RP'ing them as an unbeatable warrior, or a mage with infinite power (to name a few examples).


    **In Character**

    Name:

    Luthian Debentie

    Nickname: (Optional)

    Sadly, Luthian isn't known by a nickname.

    Age:

    21

    Gender:

    Male

    Race:

    Breton

    Appearance:

    Luthian can best be described as a rather plain young man, with his most unique and defining physical characteristic being his almost complete lack of muscles. Standing at the firm height of 5"6, he is of average height for a Breton, though he might have grown taller had his growth not ceased at the age of 14. He has fairly light brown hair (the same colour as his eyes), with an almost non-existent beard due to his obsession with remaining as what he deems 'clean', though strangely that does not extend to mud, as he's often caked in the stuff.

    Personality:

    Oddly enough, his personality somewhat contradicts his appearance. Whereas most people would peg him down as a rather simple man who wouldn't know the difference between a bottle of skooma and a way to get arrested (quite possibly because there is none), he is in fact a remarkably intelligent young man, especially considering that the closest he ever got to a 'formal education' was learning how to shove small animals off cliffs in the hope that they would die, granting him and his family food for the night. That being said, despite his logical mind, he often acts irrationally when faced with anything he does not favour, usually concerning violence against him. His irrational, and partially idiotic, behaviour has led him to develop a rather unpleasant complex, specifically a fear of rain. Should the skies open, you will usually find him screaming his head off while running in search of shelter.

    In-game RP example:

    *Panting with exhaustion as his weak legs ran through the forest, Luthian stopped for a small moment to catch his breath, which he lost roughly ten minutes ago*

    "C-Can't... see anywhere... to stay"

    *Drawing air into his starved lungs, he began to jog forward, before yelping with fright as a thunderclap, closer than before, echoed throughout the skies. Sprinting once again in the hope that he could find somewhere to hide from the terrifying entities that are drops of water. Another booming echo of thunder, and he began to scream*

    "No! No! No! No! No!"

    *He continued to shout these same words as he ran, half stumbling through the thick bramble of the forest. Then, overhead, the skies flashed with a white-hot flame as a loud rumble seemed to shake the land, causing the delirious Luthian to close his eyes in terror. The sudden loss of sight resulted in the Breton running headfirst into an obstruction of sorts, which, after squinting in pain, turned out to be the wall of a cave that he had somehow wondered into. Turning around, he watched in horror as the rain began to fall. Backing desperately into the darkness of the cave, he waited for skies to clear once more.*

    Background:

    As with most Breton's, Luthian hails from the province of High Rock, in Tamriel, a land that he hated almost from the day he was born. With the majority of Tamriel still plagued with the horrors of war, his childhood was an unhappy one. His parents were seemingly agoraphobic, or at least wanted nothing to do with others outside the small family home. This isolation led to Luthian being extremely miserable throughout his early life, until, at the tender age of 11, he realized that if he ever wished to experience the joys of life he would have to become less closed off to the outside world. That being said, his parents did not share his optimistic attitude, due to their fear of exposing themselves, and their son, to the despair of the war that was raging in cities throughout Tamriel.

    Despite his parents unwillingness to let him venture outside on his own and experience the world for what it was, be it bad or good, Luthian was determined to keep himself occupied, which he did through the means of hunting in the nearby woods with his father (which he was abysmal at, but none the less kept him happy). Sadly, even his falsely cheerful outlook on life in High Rock could not stop his mind from being twisted from the countless dreadful occurrences throughout Tamriel, most of which he heard of rather than witnessed. This created a peculiar being, with Luthian's appearance and outlook being that of a bumbling, smiling fool, while in his mind he was a thinker that could be considered as 'damaged', or even cold-hearted. His condition worsened during his teenage years, until he was struck with the second major revelation of his life. He knew that he could not carry on living in the oppressive, though relatively safe, environment of High Rock, and he knew that the other provinces of Tamriel fared much worse. From this, he came to the conclusion that he had to leave Tamriel, or risk becoming like his parents, fearful of others with no reason other than superstition and hatred.

    When he heard of the ships travelling between Tamriel, and the continent of Akavir, he knew that he had to be on board, else he would risk losing his sanity. After a whole night of begging his parents to flee and take him with them, he gave up, they were too afraid of the outside world. The next day, with no money to speak of to his name, he resorted to the dangerous task of sneaking onto one of the ships by himself, which he barely succeeded in doing before it set off. The journey to a new life took months, most of which Luthian, now at the age of 20, spent starving, barely scavenging for food without being noticed. Indeed, his 21st birthday, which was not celebrated back in High Rock, came a mere two nights before arriving in Akavir. When the vessel finally arrived in the city of Abel Mon, Luthian quickly scrambled off the ship as quickly as his starved body would allow him, into the city's streets. His new life had now started. With luck, it will be a better one.



    (Little side note, thankfully Luthian did not have to resort to the evils of Skooma during his long, lonely voyage. Remember kids, Skooma Kills.)
