In my experience, applications are sent as forum PMs to 'Active DMs'. As for formatting, just do your best to touch on the points needed for the application in a format you feel fits.

Pretty much.

As a rough guidline I'd go:

Forum PM go Active DMs
*name of character/or log in and the app you wan't (noble, good monster, ect)

Then in the body of text:

*Ideally the name of the character - if you've not decided that then your log in
*What you are applying for
*A little backstory (Note this doesn't have to be a 390 page novel. Just a paragraph or two is fine.
*A bit about the characters personality/drives/methods/stuff like that - who they are.
*Consider how your app relates to the character, tie that in with the above.

For Specific Awards/PRCs consider

*With Good monster races, consider how you're going to roleplay the dictomony of being a good monster in an evil setting (the underdark) and what you might do if you're 'found out' as someone with morality. What your plans are for such an eventuality
*With a NPC Noble House app - consider how your character fits in (or doesn't!) to the noble house in question. Make sure to touch on that.
*Pirate UD race - consider how they chose a life of surface piracy, over the underdark.

I think that covers most of the normal awards? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Oh.

Bonus Content: - If you're apping for An assassin? You'll also want to add a Sample Assassination - writing up an example of an assassination job your pc might do.

This too shall pass.

(I now have a DM Discord (I hope) It's DM GrumpyCat#7185 but please keep in mind I'm very busy IRL so I can't promise how quick I'll get back to you.)

Can I add this to the wiki?

We had this, but it feels it is extremely outdated:
