Transformers Universe MUX

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 15 questions, though the last half is used
only when applying for Original Characters.

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

  • DC App (7 questions, less detail needed)
  • FC App (8 questions)
  • EFC App (11 questions, most stringent)
  • OC App (12 questions, more detailed)

  Please send all applications to

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

Your Name:
Email Address:
Character Name:
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 much do you know about Transformers/G.I.Joe in general?
How well do you know and comprehend the theme here at TFU?

3. How do you balance consensual roleplaying with ICC/ICA (In-Character Consequences for In-Character Actions)?

4. 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.

The next three just delve a bit deeper into the above, and can be combined into one section if you wish.

5. What interests you about playing this character? What are this character's personal goals? What do you plan on achieving with this character both ICly and OOCly?
6. What do you see as this character's greatest strengths and weaknesses, beyond what is listed in the note? Keep in mind that as Springer once said, strength is more than physical.
7. What odd quirks or traits does this character possess?
What makes her/him unique?

8. (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.

For FCs, the application is finished.

Please answer the following questions if applying for an EFC:

9. 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.

10. 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.)

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

The following questions are for OCs:

12. Please give us some information for your character's IC finger.

Motto: (one line only, please)
Note: (This should be written in the style of the Transformers Universe
entries from the Marvel series; i.e., full sentences, written in third
person, one paragraph. Full note should not cover more than one screen.)

13. Tell us what you would like your character stats to be:

14. Please provide a full justification of any stats or attacks over 7, and any abilities you've requested.

Note that while we have no set limit for points here, we do require justification for higher-than-normal stats and attacks, and for all abilities.

15. Finally, please give us an idea of your character's history and motivations.

After this momentus task, you're done! Send in you app, and be patient.
