Player's Name: AIM / YIM: (A chat program is essential contacting fellow players. AIM is preferred for contacts, and required for for plot chats. Get it here.) Time Zone: Are you over 18: OOC Journal: (You may give us your personal journal, or a journal that is used for RP related posts. For some of us, those are the same thing. It is optional, but highly recommended.)
Character Name: (The name of your character according to myth.) Pantheon: (What pantheon do they come from? Greek, Egyptian, etc.) Parentage: (Some gods/goddesses have multiple possible parentage - so list their mother & father here!) Patronage: (What are they the god/goddess of?) Residence: (They can reside in the mortal world, or in their traditional home - the Underworld, on Olympus, etc., or both. Just tell us.) Personality: (Personality should include strengths and weaknesses - remember, gods served as morality tales, so try and make sure you include the flaws of their personality as well. Three paragraphs or more.) History: (Including their mythological origins and what they've been doing since the end of the myths and into in modern times. Three paragraphs or more.) Miscellaneous: (If different sources for mythology have conflicting information about important details – such as parentage, for example – you may want to clarify here. Also include special abilities not covered by their patronage. Ex. - Zeus' thunderbolt.) Plot: (Optional. If you have any plot ideas for your character going in, or have character interactions in mind, list them here! We're always excited to see who you'd like to play with.) Writing Sample: (At least four paragraphs in third person form. Links are not acceptable, we want you to write in the voice of the character for which you're applying. Current players applying for another character may omit this step.) References: (We need links to the resources you used to research your character. At least two. Three, if one of them is Wikipedia. We strongly urge you to use resources other than Wikipedia. If you need help finding resources with good details, e-mail us and we'll be happy to provide you with the links we've found informative.) Played-By: (PBs must be appropriate to the pantheon. (No bleach blonds for Sumerians, no swarthy skinned Norse, etc.) Avoid duplication by visiting the current list here.) HQ Picture: (We need a good, high quality picture for your character's icon on the icon wall, so give us your favorite here!)
