Character Creation Guide

Guide

At ChroniclesRP we love and share in the creation of new fantastic stories and characters. We recognize that members enjoy having creative options to showcase their characters histories and information.

For this reason, we offer the ability to use infobox templates as a quick at a glance option to frame your character’s picture and their most basic information. Below you will find the guide on Character Creation and the template in code at the bottom for your use.

As a reminder, please keep the following Character Creation Rules in mind when creating your character:
  • The use of ‘canon’ Fantasy characters is not allowed. Please do not try to roleplay characters from published works such as Aragorn [LOTR], Rand [WoT], or characters from other popular fantasy works;
  • Create your Character biography in the Character section of the Chronicles wiki;
  • Character account display names must be the character's name, nickname, or alias;
  • There are no face-claims, however avatars must represent your character.

Guide for Template with infobox

Infobox_character has more fields available than used in this guide, so check the link out!

Appearance

Feel free to elaborate on your character’s appearance here. What do they normally wear? Do they appear ragged? Clean? Do they stand out or do they seem to blend into the crowd? What are interesting physical characteristics?

Skills and Abilities

Everyone in is good at something. What are your character's major skills? Are they capable of manipulating Magic? (Please limit to two initial choices)

What Traits does your character have? Are they held back in any way due to their origin? This may include racial traits and flaws.

Personality

What is your character's personality? Are they mean? Charismatic? Rude? Do they have any quirks?

Biography & Lore


What is your character's background? It can be as rich or as mysterious as you want it to be. We recommend you consult the Board Story for reference and to more find a place for your character into this setting.

The Lore Section of this Template is perhaps the most important. Here you should detail what is known of your character in the wide world of Chronicles RP.

This section can be either short or long; it can be written in the style of a journal, a history book, or just in a standard way. It is important to fully convey just how your species is viewed by others and how much is known of your character by folk at large.

You can also utilize this section to establish unique and interesting story aspects of your character.

References

In this section you should list the references of IC roleplay. For characters, this can serve as a good place to track the threads you've participated in and an easy way to link new lore as your character develops through RP.
