This page is for the character application. For a TP Application, see TP Application. For an Upgrade Application, see Upgrade-App.

Before you can get a character on TFU, you need to write an application for either a Feature Character, or an Original Character of your own creation.

  The application contains 11 questions, though the last half is used only when applying for Original Characters.

This is the catch-all app. For specific apps:

  • DC App (5 questions, but less detail needed)
  • FC App (4 questions, mostly just "How would you RP them?")
  • EFC App (7 questions, most stringent requirements)
  • OC App (7 questions, more detail needed for a custom character)

  Please send all applications to tfuapps@gmail.com.

In the subject line include the character's name/faction/type,
i.e.: Ironhide/Autobot/FC.

Ironhide

Your Name:
Email Address:
Age/Birthdate:

Character's Faction:

Please answer the following questions in full, rational sentences. Pay attention to correct grammar and spelling; an application that is a chore to read is probably less likely to be approved. Please double-space between questions. Thank you.

1. What is your MU* experience? List any current and former characters you have played. If you've never played on a MU*, please detail any table-top or other roleplaying experience you may have.

2. How would you roleplay this character? What is your interpretation of her/his personality? Please be as complete as possible; the answer to this question should comprise the bulk of your application, and is what we look to most when deciding to approve or reject an application.

3. (For FCs and EFCs) How much do you know about this character's background and IC history? If you can, list a few critical points that affected who the character is today. Don't just cut and paste a history block from Wikipedia -- we don't want a book. Demonstrate you know something about the character.

4. In what sort of plots or events do you see this character taking part?

For FCs, the application is finished.

Please answer the following questions if applying for an EFC:


5. How much experience do you have in playing important, powerful, and/or leadership-oriented characters? If you've had any admin experience please list it, as well as which staff you were a part of.

6. Realistically, how much time do you have to devote to this character?
(EFCs are expected to be online and IC 6-8 hours/week at minimum.)

7. What ideas do you have to promote RP on the MUX using this character?


The following questions are for OCs:
