Detailed Character Form




Rules


  • All the rules on the regular form still apply (Read: Character Form.)

  • Put [WIP] at the beginning of and color the topic title red if form is unfinished.

  • Form must be readable (e.g. no ridiculously small font, unreadable font, bad color contrast, etc.)

  • Minimum of five flaws including at least one natural physical distinction (eg: big nose, bushy eyebrows, narrow-set eyes, etc).

  • Must be extremely detailed. Just filling out the form is not good enough, so make sure to elaborate where necessary. Minimum of 1,000 words is required to qualify for a drachma word (does not include sixty words in the form.)

  • Minimum 10 sentences for both Life Before Camp and RP Example sections.
  • You may remake old characters (that you still roleplay with) using this form and still be awarded.

  • You may not REMAKE an old character, previously made with this form, for extra drachmas.

  • If you decide to complain about not getting as many drachmas as someone else, we will simply remove the awarded drachmas.

  • You can make up to five detailed characters each month for drachmas

  • Do not include redundant information to boost the word count.



Hunter Rules


  • All above rules apply to Hunters.

  • A non-detailed Hunter form is located in the Character Form topic. (Read: Character Form.)

  • Hunters must be between the ages of ten and nineteen.

  • No romantic relationships.

  • Hunters can get several types of pets that normal demigods cannot -- these animals are normally reserved for hunting (e.g. hawks, falcons, ravens, wolves, etc.)

  • In order to convert a current character into a hunter, you must remake her with the Hunter form.

  • Hunters are not allowed to interact with demigods outside of camp; they may not enter CJ/CHB without permission from an admin.

  • We will allow the Hunters on several occasions to enter Camp Half-Blood and interact with characters from there. Hunters can be assigned on certain missions (in Hunts section) to hunt down certain monsters; sometimes Hunts will be randomly assigned, sometimes they can be bought.

Form Guide

In case you are confused about some of the terms, here is a guide to what everything means. If you have any questions or want clarification, contact an admin.


Spoiler:


Name: Your character's full name, given name, and any nicknames they may have.
Gender: Whatever gender your character identifies as (male, female, agender, genderfluid, bigender, trigender, non-binary, etc.). Don't say your character is obviously whatever their gender is. Gender is not obvious.
Mortal Parent: Name your character's mortal parent. Here you may also describe his/her background and heritage. You could also describe their personality here, if you like.
God Parent: Your character's godly parent. If it is an obscure god/goddess, please specify what they are the god of.
Date of Birth: Specify the year, month, and day your character was born.
Place of Birth: Where your character was born. If they grew up somewhere different, also specify.
Hometown: This is where your character grew up. It may or may not be the same as where they were born.
Last Residence: This is where your character last lived before coming to camp. It may or may not be their hometown and it may or may not be the same place they were born.
Race: “Race is an indication of the heritage with which you were born, regardless of location or learned behavior.” ie. Skin tone, eye color, hair color, etc. (eg. Caucasian, Asian, South American, African, etc.)
Ethnicity: “Ethnicity is about the learned cultural behaviors celebrated throughout regions around the world.” ie. accents, traditions, mannerisms, language, etc. (eg. American, British, Chinese, Russian, Mexican, German, South African, Polish, etc.)
Accent: An accent modifies the ways words are pronounced. . “Normal,” “None,” or “American” won't cut it. Be specific and do some research if you must.
Skin Tone: Everything from Albino to Black.
Eye Color: If your character has a unique eye color, explain why.
Hair Color: The color of your character's hair. Include their natural color if they dye it, if you like.
Hair Length: The length of your character's hair. You can also specify hairstyle here.
Height: The approximate height of your character in feet/inches or centimeters at the time of creation.
Weight: The approximate weight of your character in pounds (lbs) or kilograms at the time of creation.
Body Type: The shape of your character's body. Are they a bean pole? Do they have natural curves? Are they more portly? Try and be realistic. Not everyone is supermodel thin. (This should make sense with their height/weight. A 6'2" male will probably not weigh 120 lbs and be super muscular. Do a bit of research on body mass index if you have to.)
Appearance: Here you summarize your character's appearance. You may include things from previous sections, but you don't have to. If your character has interesting scars, freckles, wears glasses, etc. Include that here! We expect you to have at least one good, proper sentence here. “See above” won't cut it.
Weapon: The weapon your character uses in battle. Remember that most demigods use celestial bronze, children with god parents from the underworld can use stygian iron, and Roman kids use imperial gold.
Armor: The type of armor your character will use in battle.
Pet(s): Any animal familiars your character might have. Stay away from anything that is exotic, illegal to own, or does not appear in the book world. (eg. Small hellhounds are allowed, but dragons are not. House cats are allowed, but jaguars are not)
Talents/Skills: Talents and Skills are things that your character is good at. (Math, running, fighting, archery, making friends, writing, etc.)
--Talents are general things that your character is good at. (eg. Good at running, quick learner) These are usually less specific than skills and make certain skills more easy for them to pick up. You can not learn a talent.
--Skills are learned. (eg. Good at soccer, good at math) Anyone can learn a skill if they work hard enough at it.
Flaws: Flaws are personality (or physical) traits that hinder the character's abilities or make them less likable, less likely to succeed in life if they don't overcome them, etc. (boastful, shy, has a limp, clumsy, etc.) Each character should have at least one physical flaw, but a majority of their flaws should be personality flaws.
--Personality flaws are something that can cause the character problems in life. (eg. Percy Jackson's fatal flaw is Hubris) They don't have to be super detrimental, but they should give the character more depth. This does not include things like allergies.
--Physical flaws can be anything from something they see as bad (lips are ginormous) to something that will change them for the rest of their life (Missing a leg). If necessary, explain how and why they have this/these physical flaw(s).
Strengths: Strengths are personality traits that will help them in life by making them more likable, more apt to learn, less likely to fall into trouble, etc. They are not talents, per-say, but they are positive things about the character's, well, character. (eg. Happy outlook on life, charming) Obviously there is bound to be some overlap with talents/skills, so it's your call exactly where each trait goes.
Weaknesses: A weakness is something the character is currently struggling with, but could later on in life be turned into a strength if worked on or a flaw if they fail to mend what needs fixing. Weaknesses are not as permanent as flaws. (eg. Has a hard time making friends, bat at archery, etc.) Weaknesses may have some overlap with flaws, but try to avoid this.
Likes: Things your character likes.
Dislikes: Things your character doesn't like.
Fears: Anything your character is afraid of.
Personality: Here you summarize your character's personality. Try and make this descriptive like you would read in a book. You may include things from previous sections, but you don't have to. If your character has odd quirks, put them here!
Abilities: Abilities are passive powers inherited from your character's godparent or legacy. They do not require energy.
Powers: Any powers your character may have that are beyond this world which require energy. (Eg. Shoot fireballs, make plants grow...) These must include restrictions and cool down times.
Social Status: The social status of your character prior to arriving at camp. (eg. Loner, popular, band nerd, jock...)
Summer or Year Rounder: Does your character stay in camp only for the summer and go home for school or do they stay at camp year-round for whatever reason?
Years at Camp: How long have they attended CHB?
Life Before CHB: Describe your character's life before camp using at least 10 complete, descriptive sentences.
Role-playing Example: Give a roleplay sample of at least 10 sentences for THIS character on THIS site. Don't use anything for another character or anything from another non-chb site. This displays how you intend to roleplay your character.
Notes: Anything else you would like to add goes here.
