If you think something needs to be added, don't hesitate to let me know, comment about it! I'm aiming to make this in depth and high quality. Also, this sheet is
designed for fan-characters, mind you, it can be utilized that way, but it's not designed for it!
My sheet for character creation, yes it's long. Yes it's meant to be.
*Filling this out doesn't automatically make a character great, it shows you know a great deal about them. This is meant to be a tool, a springboard if you will.
*Even if you fill this out, if you question whether your character is MS/GS, take a good hard look over your character. Remember, characters aren't your kids. You can tweak them as needed.
*Definition of MS varies, and what may be MS in one realm, will not always be so in another. If everyone is a magical anime character with DBZ level powers in the realm your character is in, then you have a human with no powers, they may very well be in a MS position.
Basically, respect the realm you're putting your character in so you can have an effective character.
*If you fill out this sheet in a half-assed manner, don't be surprised if your character seems half-assed as a result
*If you don't know what something means then look it up, you have access to the internet to even be viewing this character sheet. So make use of it, dissolve that confusion.
*If your character has a name that means something rather abhorrent, such as loveless/black death/tormented soul etc. and they exist in at least semi-real realm. I pity them, if your character's parents wouldn't name their kid that, why should they have a name that's so ridiculous.(Could you imagine life with a name that means something like that?)Giving a character a grotesque-meaning name for no apparent reason other than sounding cool is a stupid thing to do, as a general rule.
*To make characters believable, take a look at yourself, and those around you, if you have a sibling/teacher/friend/spouse/husband/human being around you. You're probably more than aware of their flaws, character(quitter mentality), and topical(minor, such as being allergic to wheat). It's those same elements(not necessarily the same issues, but you get it) that make a character engaging to a reader.no, you do not have to have some loser human character to make a character believable
*This isn't idealized for fan characters, and it will not(ever) be made for such. It's designed for original characters and original roleplay characters.
*I've made this sheet over the course of a year, gradually editing, and revising. That's another reason why it's so long.
*Don't like all the questions? No one said you have to answer all of them.
*If something about the sheet is null and not relevant to your character, then just remove the question and go on.
*You can remove my parenthesis notes if you want, you know
*If your character is offended/you don't care to share some sort of embarrassing detail about your character. You're way too attached to that character
*This isn't made for author-inserts. Please take your sock-puppet/amplifier elsewhere.
*This isn't made for (per)(fur)(sparkle)sonas. Fill out the basic for that, it's more flexible that way.
*If your character has some sociopathic/psychopathic/mentally crippling disorder and is in some kind of position of power yet lacks any mental or emotional stability and suddenly snaps to being some logical mastermind. There's a problem. A BIG
*If the financial bit confuses you, do some research on the occupation your character has to get some idea. If they have some job that's not at all heard of in the real realm, well, you can design the economy, minimums and maximums of income. Go for it.
*Not linking back here is a crime
Okay, with that out of a way. I look forward to seeing your fill-outs!

Yes I edited it again, I re-structured it somewhat and added a few more things.
But wait! There's more!
I just released a shortened, considerably more basic version of this sheet. It's here, but remember, it's basic!
