You find yourself walking down what feels like a maze of hallways. Left turns, right turns, and you swear you’ve seen that one off colored door three times already. By now you’re having a difficult time remembering where the main entrance you came through even was, but after what feels like ages, you finally find yourself standing in front of a door that has a sign reading “Public Relations Office” on it.
Maybe your palms are sweaty from nerves. Maybe you’re standing tall in confidence. Maybe you’re still half asleep because it's too early or late to be doing this right now. Whatever the feeling or reason, you reach out to the doorknob and give it a turn in order to enter the office.
“Have a seat.” You hear from the desk on the other side of the room with a chair waiting for you across from it. The figure sitting there looks through a stack of folders before pulling one out and reading through the contents as you do what they asked. “So, you’re our newest member? Welcome to the family, it’s nice to finally meet you in person. I’m the head of Public Relations.” They lean back in their seat, eyes set on you as they gesture towards you.
“Now then, tell me how you got here, and why you decided to join up with us.”
For this “mission”, you will be showing your character getting situated in their chosen faction. Was there something from their backstory that you wanted to show off more leading up to this moment? Want to give a glimpse into their life before and after joining their faction? Maybe you want to explain how they got acclimated to this new life they have? This “mission” is very open to interpretation, and serves as an opportunity to help introduce your character in more depth than from their backstory on their application alone.
Because this isn't an actual mission, it does not require a mission prerequisite. It does, however, need to be done before a character can try participating in any future missions. All player characters must do “Mission 0” in order to progress further and rank up, this includes when you purchase a new character slot for another playable character.
There is no deadline to have “Mission 0” completed. When submitting it to the group, please be sure to submit it to the “Missions and Mission Prerequisites” folder in the gallery. You may make multiple parts for your “Mission 0” and do a mix of art and writing if desired.
If doing a submission that is in multiple parts:
Please submit each part with a link in the description to the next and previous parts so that it is easier to follow along and review.
You may also do collaborations with other members who may be in the same faction as you, or even a roleplay if you desire. If doing a roleplay, remember to submit it in story format, and it will also be submitted to the “Missions and Mission Prerequisites” gallery folder instead of the “Role Plays” one since it is for a mission.
