Application Proccess

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 19, 2012, 8:57 AM


1. Choose a division and an element:

There are 5 divisions,

Biohazard: This group specializes in research and communications. People in this group aren't exactly front-line fighters and they are mostly behind the scenes.

Poisonous: The support group. Those with high defense or medical abilities belong here.

Radioactive: The assasination division. They take on paid missions and have to be quite stealth-orientated.

Flammable: Members in this division specialize in close range combat and usually have alot of physical or magical destructive powers.

Corrosive:This is an elite group, consisting of a mix of people who excel in their respective fields.

:: If there's a specific element that you want and someone has already applying for it, then you'll have to compete with the other person!



2. Create your character using the template in "resources", and the reference also in "resources".


Name:
Age: [Min. age is 15 Max. age 90001; because of their elements it is possible that their aging process differs from the norm.]
Gender:
Height/Weight:
Nationality: [This is optional because there have been lots of migrations and changes in the world so it's possible that your character has an undetermined nationality]
Rank:
Division:
Element:

Description: [Describe your character's looks, any unique physical quirks that can't be drawn out of there was no space left on the page or whatever, this is optional, so yeah.]

Weapon/Power: [Please explain how they fight, like their fighting style, how they use their power/weapon. Include strengths and weaknesses to balance them out. No OP Characters.]

---------------------------------------------------
Powers: [[PLEASE READ; VERY IMPORTANT]]
[ -it MUST relate to their element i.e. Arsenic is very poisonous so something related to poison
   -Limited to 1-2 powers per character
   -Please include a weakness to your power i.e. Only able to use it for a fixed duration, char feels nauseous after using it etc.]


** DO NOTE that your char should be relatively CAPABLE WITH THEIR POWERS/abilities otherwise it is  unlikely that HAZARD would accept them.**
---------------------------------------------------

Personality: [You can do bullet points, or write it out, but it should somehow correlate with your background, how they were built or became like they are. It makes it easier for anyone RPING with you to know!]

Background: [Write or describe how they came to be after reading Hazardous/Bionic's BG info. They're past, and write it according to the timeline, it's okay if you have a hard time writing, just try your best, mods like me stink at writing too, no biggie. Doesn't even have to be their past, just give some sort of background on your character if you want a mysterious one, and later on develop more on them, reveal more, etc.]

Miscellaeneous: [Do whatever here, likes, dislikes, relationships, secrets, etc. More stuff you can think about writing but no category? This is where it goes, no restrictions, have fun.]

WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR AN ESSAY or a fully fleshed out, amazingly developed character because the group and the ongoing plot is SUPPOSED to help you with character development.
We ARE LOOKING FOR BELIEVABLE characters who aren't one dimensional, with their own motivations and purposes and fit into the setting of HazardBionic.




3. Note the Captain of the group that you made the application for:

Flammable: :iconmizury:
Poisonous: :iconkelcake:
Radioactive: :iconjourne:
Biohazard: :iconmaennaise:
Corrosive: :iconvonnabeee:



4. Wait for the captains to get back to you on your application!

Please do take note that the captains are busy with other real life things as well, so please DO NOT pester them constantly for a reply. You may ask for an app check but the captains are NOT OBLIGATED to provide you with one.

All captains will finish with applications on the given app deadline.



Main Guidelines:

~ Follow the rules for the uniform that will be written on the app sheet.

~ No overpowering, otherwise automatic rejection.

~ Traditional and digital art is both okay for application as long as you show effort. Proving that you'll be involved in the group.

~ Element must not be taken by any current member.

~ We like unique characters! Don't go too far though, like too many accessories or clothing, etc. It does not have to look like the captains, the more unique you look, the better your chances!

~ Personality and everything should be unique too! We don't want everyone having the same personality. WE ARE NOT ASKING for crazy, out of this world characters with personality disorders, what we want is little things that make you character different. Little quirks are great for your app, it makes your character seem more legit, because no ones absolutely perfect.

~ Copying and tracing, be it pose/ character design is NOT tolerated. Don't think that we do not check these things, because we DO and we are very strict about it. (We understand that poses are commonly repeated but please do not trace them off a base/ another picture)

~ We will not accept any application that is:
   -done with a base.
   -drawn by another person that is not the applicant.
   -traced.

~ THE MAIN FOCUS of this group is going to be on drawing, especially for missions and such, so if you are someone who does not draw, you might want to reconsider application.



RETURNING MEMBERS (if you are a new applicant, you may skip this)

`You do not have to reapply with the same character/ to the same division.

`You DO NOT get any special privileges, even if you apply with the same character. However, since activity IS one aspect of consideration, if you used to be an active member you'll already have that box checked.

`If you are applying with the same character:
  -the time passed is 2 YEARS, so please edit your char's age accordingly unless your character ages differently from the norm.
  -Your character's personality/ basic information should essentially remain the same because they are the same person. Any sudden change in personality should be explained clearly and should be logical.
  -You SHOULD be applying to the same division because your character will have the same element.
  -Feel free to elaborate on their time spent in HAZARD in the backstory section, i.e friends they have made, things they have learnt etc
  -You may apply with the same application but please edit the information accordingly.



Judging process

. Judging will be tough, because there is a limited number of slots.

. There is a high chance you might not be accepted if there is a small flaw in your app (especially if it's something already mentioned in the journals), make sure you check it carefully.

. Depending on the size of the group as of current, your chances will be better if the group is large. .

. If you don't get into this group, there's always another chance because we will continue having openings until every Element is taken up.

. EACH DIVISION has their own set of standards, so something that captain A rejects could be something that captain B accepts.

. Please do not hate any of the captains if they do reject your app. If we DO reject your app, it's may be due to many reasons, but it's definitely nothing personal! Sometimes your app might be perfectly fine, but you might have been rejected because of strong competition.

GENERAL CHECKLIST:
-Did you cover everything we asked for in the application
-Is the character believable
-Would he/she fit into HAZARD/ that particular division
-Does it fulfill uniform requirements
-original+unique design
-Is the character over-powered
-Does the power fit the element
-Is this applicant going to be active (by active we don't mean submitting a picture every other day, but we don't want people who submit an app and then disappear after that)

**BESIDES THE GENERAL checklist each captain has their own set of standards and whether you get in or not will also depend on other people applying for the same element!**




Don't worry we won't be so strict once you've made it into the group. We're all about crack rping and drawing.

I'm sorry, but I have questions about the Power. When it says "Limited to 1-2 powers," does it also mean how the character use that abilities? Like for Madhu, he can solidify clothes, using that ability as a weapon and as a defensive. So does the ability and how the character used that said ability different?

So, I just found you all right now (someone I watch applied), and I was wondering if/when you'll open applications again, or if you'll have another of these groups at some point? (Otherwise I'm going to do my best to get my application in on time. Wish me luck?)

;v; Just a note, you probably shouldn't just leave the apps unanswered if they aren't chosen. A simple "We are sorry, but your application is not up to our standards" or something like that would be nicer.

I run a big group and not saying that they've been declined causes waaay more issues than just leaving it ignored.
