    So we have a in character (IC) RP thread and a lot of people now wish to make characters for their toons to join in. Unfortunately not everyone is as good at writing or coming up with concepts. In order to help those people out I've made this thread where you can ask for help making a character, and those guys who have experience in doing do (Me, Viral, Fed etc) can help you out.

    Now the hardest part of making a character can be starting. So when people have asked me in the past for help I've thrown a bunch of questions at them to kick start their brain. I finally got around to compiling an official list of these questions and writing an example for each for anyone to look over and use to help them start. The first spoiler contains all the questions on their own to make it easy to use. The second spoiler contains example answers as well as questions.

    Question Template:

    Example Answers:
    So if you need help just post a basic description of your character/using the template in the spoiler and we'll get around to helping you big grin

    There's a cool forum that people RP in, just read what happened so you can stay on track. Or listen to the band Earth and run around thinking about pretty things... That got me going for RP lol.

    Another question is there any specific story line for the forums? If so i'd love to read it or is it mainly following the actual story concept of the game?
    (I know i'm an idiot but i'm curious is all)
