With the change in who handles 5% applications, the discussion of a generic template to follow has come up. Having reviewed previous applications it is evident that everyone writes different levels of detail. However, that there is often areas that are left grey and empty which follow up questions are needed. However, the template should enable for all key areas to be satisfied for an appropriate review while facilitating a faster rate of approval / rejection and the receiving of an in-game character.
For all future applications please send them directly to myself (Spyre) on the forums as a private message with the template below.
5% Application Template wrote:
Private Message Title: 5% Application - (Player Name)
Player Name: The username in which you actively use and obtained your reward for.
Public CD Key: Please do not post your full CD Key. Follow instructions here: http://wiki.arelith.com/CD_key#Public_CD_key
Proposed Character Name: Pretty self-explanatory
This section should focus on what you are spending the reward for. The following areas of focus should be touched in this section:
- What race are you applying for?
- What mechanical benefits / weaknesses are supported in lore for this race that are also Arelith focused? (Provide references)
- Where in the Arelith setting they are planned to be played
- Does this race exist already mechanically or is it a custom addition?
Provide all relevant character background that has been made for this character. A developed concept helps aid the process along - we want to know they are, what their strengths and weaknesses is, behaviour in society and their purpose coming to Arelith.
Anything else that you feel is relevant and needed that is not addressed in the above sections.
