So you see the issue now. Of having someone write on a general topic not knowing some much needed info?
  DBL / Colorful_insanity / 11d 16h 12m 40s
Aye. Plus its a world of Your creation, not a topic other people would have prior knowledge of
  Sapherno11 / 11d 16h 45m 13s
I mean i could but the topic of dragon rider is a very broad thing.
  Colorful_insanity / 11d 17h 42m 46s
The ever war between, "How do I set a writing requirement to weed out undesirables without turning away potentials"

I'm aware of the struggle, which is why I usually have players fill out a good 2 paragraph description of "something" related to the roleplay at hand.

Anywho, off to work for real now, see yah in 8 hours

Had i done the basic skeleton i had originally though up itd have been much easier to fill out, but harder to tell if a person would have been useful.

The skeleton would have been

Puppetmaster, Real life photo, real life name, real life age, Avatar photo, Avatar name, Avatar race, Avatar age, Dragon photos Dragon type.
  DBL / Colorful_insanity / 11d 18h 17m 19s
That's what I figured, but wanted to ask you directly :)

Ok, off to work!
  Sapherno11 / 11d 18h 17m 53s
Think of it more of lime this. The skeleton is a baseline for your character yes, but the character skeleton is done up during your dragon rider while the rp wont start out on the day of dragon riding starting it gives you an idea of what your "group" will consist of power wise. This helps me assert if a person will be good for the rp over minor details like that. For instance as mrs bellyache asked about was Void magic. While possible to obtain one would have to have a very unnatural long life even in the eyes of the elves to get close tp scratching at void magic.

To answer the question forming in your heas it would be the lateral. I had you fill out info before dragon riders so you know what it is your building up to.
  DBL / Colorful_insanity / 11d 18h 54m 52s
Eh, the first one you used works fine.

Also its not an explicit backstory per say, but more little things like our custom weapons, or our ranks in society, or what they did before being dragon riders. Things like that.

Knowing our characters start at level 1, it almost implies they have a past history BEFORE we "take over" their bodies as players, rather then create them at start.

The other option would be if you had us create the stuff we planned to use in advance, and the characters would catch up eventually to where we are in the skeletons.

I remember, and considering they've been here almost as long as any other race, I'd assume they'd pick the largest mountain range to work with. Plus the fact that I did call it the "northern dwarven kingdom", would make sense for it to be the first one.

The cities location works with the first edit you made.
  Sapherno11 / 11d 18h 56m 6s
Because you have to remeber saph the photo has 5 mountain ranges and the dwarves only claim two of them as home...
  DBL / Colorful_insanity / 11d 18h 59m 22s
Also if your going circle type of water base your mountain range your from doesn't have to specifically be on the main land, as The map that is in the rp itself is all unlocked...

So it could be [ this] area also.
  DBL / Colorful_insanity / 11d 19h 2m 35s
Saph there shouldn't have been a back History to your character's Avatar at all...As for everyone starting out in the same location. Think SOA... Everyone got summoned to one location and send out from there. The Avatars will all start in different areas when the game first launches because the call to an area hasn't affected them yet.

Once the announcement is made that they are trapped within the game however everyone will be in the same town, which I actually need to go marc on the map. From there its free game.
  DBL / Colorful_insanity / 11d 19h 5m 30s
Actually while thinking about it, I did have a question.

We had to fill out a section about our Avatar's past history and such.

If only the starting area is unlocked though, how does that tie in with us not being able to be in our starting areas for our races? Like for example, the Silver Groves. As an elf, I would have assumed you would have Started there, and I would have started in Thraka'Dar, but with all races starting in the one unlocked area, how can our avatars Have a backstory?
  Sapherno11 / 11d 19h 10m 43s
Ahh, yeah that would work too.

I more went for the other location because it looks more...idk, circular?

That said, the fact there was a giant earthquake could have changed the shape of the land itself, especially added in a eruption.
  Sapherno11 / 11d 19h 15m 22s
Your Good... I totally forgot about that.... lol I wasn't thinking there really, I was more thinking of [ Here]
