RP License Reception Program


How to get your own RP License

Uses of the RP License:


The RP License is required for you to participate in any mid/high-tiered story such as the "Grand Saga", "Origin 33", "Grand Trilogies", etc. You do not need a License if the starter of the story approves your participation in that story, nor do you need the license to participate in your own RPs. Nevertheless, we recommend you have an RP License on hand; having one shows your seniority in RPing and story-writing.

How to Obtain One:


In order to obtain a RP License, you must post up the RP Character (s) you wish to use (Separate topics, please) by making a new topic in this forum and naming it by your FULL CHARACTER NAME. In your post, include the following information: Full Character Name (s), Character Nickname (s), Age / Date of Birth, Relatives (Parents, siblings, children, etc), Class / Job, Gender, Height / Weight, Other Physical Attributes / Appearance, Mental Attributes / Personality (In different situations - be specific), Background / History (Be sure to include the place of Origin), Equipment (Be sure to include what kind of clothes you wear, what weapons you have, etc), Other Information (If you have any drawings, pictures, etc please place them here)

Notify Us


After you post up your Character Profile, either inform an administrator through PM or reply here with a link to your topic. An administrator will then respond to your profile with a grade out of 100 percent.

Grading Policy


You must receive 80% or above in order to qualify for a license. Generally, we pass most applications; only the least quaified submissions are rejected. If possible, all of the administrators will grade each profile; otherwise, you need two passing grades to receive the license. If you passed only on one grade out of two, and the two differ by 10 or more points, a third grade will be used to assess your qualifications.

Grading Criteria


Holistic Grades:
Length: (10+ points)
English Syntax / Readability: (10+ points)
Total / Final Grade: (100+ points)

Profile Content:
Full Character Name(s):
Character Nickname(s):

Height / Weight:
Other Physical Qualities / Appearances: (20 Points)
Mental Qualities / Personality: (20 Points)
Background / History: (30 Points)
Equipment / Clothing: (10 Points)
Other Information: (Recommended but not required)

Follow the format:


Graders: Check for completion of the profile by determining whether all criteria are completed. Copy all of the following code, and insert the scores for each criteria. Then determine whether the total passes or not.
CODE
[u]Profile Content:[/u]
[b]Other Physical Qualities / Appearances:[/b] (20 Points)
[b]Mental Qualities / Personality:[/b] (20 Points)
[b]Background / History:[/b] (30 Points)

[b]Background / History:[/b] (30 Points)
[b]Equipment / Clothing:[/b] (10 Points)
[b]Other Information:[/b] (Recommended but not required)

Warning!


IMPORTANT: All fields must be FULLY filled for the profile to be graded; in the case that a certain information cannot be determined or is unknown (IE: Age), state "Unknown" and give the age from a visual appearance (IE: If he looks 21 or 5, etc). Also, YOUR PROFILE MUST BE IN THE APPROPRIATE FORMAT IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE GRADED and thus for you to receive a license. Do not leave out any of the criteria, and be sure to BOLD all of them, ensuring there is a space between the : (colon) and the content following. "Gender: Male" is appropriate whereas "gender:male" and "Gender:male" etc are NOT.

Exceptional work will receive "Extra Credit" (Marked by "+")

If you already made another topic, I'll be nice and leave it here...basically leaving up to Grand whether to delete it or not. If you didn't, I'll split your profile from this topic and make a new one.

TOPIC UPDATED

Update 1: I've changed the official passing grade to 85% from the original 60%. I'm sure everyone can do it. We haven't failed a single license lately.

Update 2: I've included the following as the third paragraph under "How to obtain [a license]" (It's self explanatory. No explanation needed, but if you have questions, don't be afraid to post it) Hopefully we can get all of our administrators to grade each profile; if that is not possible, you need two passing grades to receive the license. If you passed only on one grade out of two, and the two differ by 10 or more points, a third grade will be required. Then, we will determine whether you pass on the average of the three grades.

Update 3: I've updated the "General Criterias" (renamed it "Holistic Grades", and removed the 5 pts for the topic name. Now, instead of minusing points, it will be required that the rule is followed (read the next update) before the profile can be graded.

Update 4: I've also added the following, so that basically, instead of deducting points for missing fields or fields of the inappropriate format, we will basically be REQUIRING that all fields are filled and are of the appropriate format before it can be graded: IMPORTANT: All fields must be FULLY filled; In the case that a certain information cannot be determined, or is unknown (IE: Age), state "Unknown" and give the age from a visual appearance (IE If he looks 21 or 5, etc). Also, YOUR PROFILE MUST BE IN THE APPROPRIATE FORMAT OR ELSE IT WILL NOT BE GRADED, and you will therefore not receive the license! Do not miss any of the criterias, and be sure to BOLD all of them, ensuring there is a space between the : (colon) and the content following. "Gender: Male" is appropriate while "gender:male" or "Gender:male" etc is NOT. This is for consistency of format.

Update 5: Point structures are updated, increasing the point values of the more descriptive fields (such as background / history) to reward extensive and detailed information, and decreasing the point values of the more "easily filled" fields (such as gender, name, etc)

Update 6: Renamed a few fields, but that's minor.

Enjoy ssmile.gif

I'm applying for an RP liscence as well.

Profile Content:
Full Character Name(s): Morgorin Karngroron
Character Nickname(s): None, he has no time for such things.
Age / Date of Birth [If Known]: 3rd day of Wailan, 205. That makes him about 27.
Class / Job: Mercenary
Gender: Male
Relatives:

Parents: His parents are just like him, Dragonlings, but they are a feral species of this kind, acting more like beasts than he does. They were killed when fighting over territory.

Siblings: Well, this is the interesting part. His kind lay eggs and in order to ensure the whole "Survival of the Fittest" they pit the newly hatched Dragonlings against each other in a battle based on instinct. There is only one survivor per litter, Morgorin was the fittest.

Height / Weight: 6’ 9” about 300 lbs of pure muscle.

Other Physical Qualities / Appearances: Morgorin has prominent wings that support his body in flight. He also has a tail that he uses somewhat like a club. One of his strangest traits (beside the wing and tail) are the gun metal gray scales on his extremities. His skin is dark gray, nearly black as well as his hair.

Morgorin’s eyes, in contrast to the rest of his body, are flaming orange with slightly elongated pupils.

Mental Qualities / Personality: Morgorin is quite clever, as is most of his kind.

Morgorin is quick to anger and spiteful. He is conserved, though, when in the prescience of a perspective employer. Morgorin is an ambitious young... thing... and this may drive him to double cross and deceive when he may profit from it.

Background / History: Dragonlings are "cursed" beings that have been hunted and are now forced to live on small islands throughout the world. The dragonling race is more civilized than originally thought, though they do have some rather barbaric traditions. The basic structure of Dragonlings is tribes, based on what traits of their original dragon forms they have. The most dragon like tribe is the Egoroba, all members of Egoroba have long snouts, webbed ears, claws, horns, wings, tails, and scales covering all parts of their bodies. The second most dragon like, which Morgorin is part of, is the Karngroron. All members of Karngroron have scales over their extremities (and sometimes undersides), hair on their heads, wings, tails, and otherwise human like traits. The other two tribes are the Kazgi (useless tails & wings, and some scales) and Konath (Scales covering their whole body). Each tribe has a strict social caste system, based on coloration. It is not known what the other tribes social class is to the other tribes, this is to prevent killing off of especially high ranking members of society. In Morgorin's tribe the caste system goes as follows : Green, Black, White, Blue, and Red. Morgorin falls under the High-Middle class of black, even though his scales are technically dark gray (as all are). Not all tribes have all colors, the metallic ones tending to be in Kazgi, and especially bright colors being especially constant on Egoroba. Tribes also were separated in their magic and belief systems, though they are also unknown to the other tribes. The Karngroron believe in their god Karn, the god of civilization. He takes the form of a full grown dragon and is the patron of the storm. Their magic, corresponding with their god, is Storm magic, using lightning strikes and heavy winds to fight battles at times. In order to use their magic they need only clear their minds of everything but what they want to happen and to hold a hand to the sky. This can take anywhere from several minutes to merely a second, depending on their skill. They need no magi, still having some of their abilities from the dragon ancestors.

Morgorin started his life as an egg, waiting to hatch. When this finally occurred he was the first egg to hatch, making his odds greatest to win in the gambling of the eggs. (The gambling of the eggs is the contest described under siblings). Morgorin survived the gambling easily, defeating his fellows in less than half and hour. He was then dubbed Morgorin, after the original dragonling of his clan. He lived a normal childhood and grew to a tallish size. His fondest memories are, even now, his constant battles with the other tribes and attempted genocide of the Konath. (The Konath were the outcasts and were considered disgusting by the other tribes.) His battle and magic skill gained him respect and honor among his own kind and word eventually reached the few rogue sailors that landed on the forbidden Isles in search of adventure. He began to get bored with the battles on the island, having his tribe now unchallenged, and began learning the common language used on the sea. He took off with sailors who paid him a large sum of money to fight for them. His story has been interesting from there.

Equipment / Clothing:

Sword: Morgorin owns one sword, which he received through his battles with his brethren. The grip of the sword is in the shape of a dragon with two rubies for eyes, somehow fitting perfectly to Morgorin's hand. The pommel contains one bright yellow gemstone, though what type it is is unknown. The guard in in the shape of scaly arms wrapping around and meeting at a large Peridot, the claws gripping the stone. The blade of Morgorin's sword is shaped into three prongs, with sharpened tips and edges. This makes it effective in stabbing especially, though it is not lacking in slashing effectively.

Poison Daggers: Morgorin carries an array of poisonous daggers, with varying poisons for varying purposes. These are his weapon of choice in sneak attacks, assassinations (He can throw them if need be), and when he does not intend to kill.

Knives: Morgorin recently... acquired... two wonderfully crafted fighting knifes. The knives double as brass knuckles and can endure most of the abuse Morgorin would ever put them through. These are his weapons of choice in hand-to-hand combat and he uses them more than his other weapons.

Morgorin wears a dark suit of light (in weight) armor, though it is able to repel light arrows and some light blows from a sword. The armor used to carry a crest that features an eye overlaying a lightning bolt to symbolize his clan, though this has recently rubbed off from use. The color is similar to his skin and scales in color and is very hard to spot in a dark alley...


Other Information: This characters race was not originally created by me, though it has been most recently perfected by me. I have come up with an entire culture based on this race, and an entire world history for them. This is only a very small portion of what I have done with the race and this character.

No! Read the topic. You must make a SEPARATE topic for your RP character, and you also must stylize (bold when necessary) the entry. Those are basic requirements you must fulfill before anyone will grade your submission.

Thanks.

Don't worry about it. Our RPG section is in hibernation just now, so there is no real point to the Licence until we get around to reawakening it - but I liked your profile sbiggrin.gif good job.
