Guidebook

Character creation

Profile breakdown


This brief guide will give you everything you need to know about filling out your profiles here on Sol. You will notice a good majority of the information is either minimal or not required at all. This is because while we will offer all the places to store information about your characters, we encourage organic IC interactions. This means secrets of ones past, and personality if so desired can be hidden from OOC eyes only to be found out IC. Here at Solanacaea we feel this gives the players a unique opportunity to truly interact blind — just as you or I might until we got to know one another.

Name All accounts should be your characters first name, full names may be added to your profiles.

Aging

While wolves on Nidria grow physically like real wolves would, their mental developement is closer to that of a human! Next to their physical age you'll see the human equivalent of their mentality

  • Pups: 0 - 12 months (newborn - 12 year old)
  • Juveniles: 12 months - 4 years (13 yrs - 20 yrs)
  • Young adults: 4 - 8 years (21 yrs - 30 yrs)
  • Adult: 8 - 14 years (31 yrs - 50 yrs)
  • Elder: 14 - 20 years (51 yrs - 80 yrs)

Foster pups!

Anyone may make a foster pup as long as there is not a current ban in place, however you must find a guardian BEFORE you audition your character
  • Pups should not often wander around unattended! While it does happen that they wander off, it should not be a regular occurrence until they're older and more self sufficient. Being able to wander about alone all the time would defeat the purpose of them having guardians or parents at all. Guardians or parents should choose a single land in which they are living that a pup should be expected to stay in until they're about 6 months or older, at that point you may extend their range to an entire zone, and so on and so forth!

  • Pups under 6 months without an active guardian! Once a guardian goes inactive for 2 months, the user playing them will be notified that they need to find a new guardian within two weeks or the account for the pup will be moved to inactive. The pup can be re-auditioned once they are either older than 6 months or find a new guardian.
Sex This is your characters biological sex only, preferences while of course welcome are to be left to the details of your characters appearance or personality sections. Or revealed IC!

Birth The season your character was born. Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn

Sizes

  • XSmall: 1-2ft | under 35 lbs
  • Small: 2-3ft | 35-80 lbs
  • Medium: 3-4ft | 80-150 lbs
  • Large: 4-5ft | 150-200 lbs

Ancestry: Native or outsider. Whether your character was born & grew up on site or was born elsewhere. If they are native it is natural they have grown up with the customs & beliefs on Nidria & if they are an outsider they may have very different beliefs & it is expected they know nothing about how the natives on Nidria live & function.

Affinity: The one element their powers will revolve around. You may only choose one, this will be chosen in your audition & added to your profile by staff. Your affinity CANNOT be changed once accepted. Please see the affinity (click!) section of the guidebook for more details!

Appearance: Appearances are very open base here on Solanacaea, you may have any color, marking, mutations you’d like with no purchase necessary as long as your character falls within the limitations of nature. The wolves here on Solanacaea are very much mortal, bound by physical restrictions. This means we restrict mutations that would limit survival, such as a skull for a head, vital exposed bones (such as a skull), missing organs or zombie like rot. Please ask a staff member if you are unsure if your mutation would be allowed, as it may differ in case-by-case situations.
  • Birth defects such as albinism & melanism are free to make as long as there is not an active ban in place. You may check the auditions board for current bans
  • Please supply a reference OR a 200 word description. While we encourage you expand beyond this, it is not required.

Personality: We require at least 5 key personality traits for each character. We encourage you to expand past these, but it’s not required.

History: This is not a required field, while characters do need to have a history, you are not required to share the details of this and may leave it up to be IC determined only.

Familiar: All characters with an elemental affinity (this means no mundane!) have the right to a familiar, see more details about this on the familiar portion of the guidebook.

Grimoire: This is where you may store all the details about your characters abilities. While primarily optional in order to fight with magick you must have these filled out BEFORE you enter a fight! Characters may only have 4 abilities in total! Although you are allowed to forget old abilities to learn new ones! But this means you will no longer be able to perform the one given up. Keep in mind tampering with magick abilities, and strengths directly before or during a fight is strictly forbidden.
