Character Application
Templates and Such

Please post applications in their own topic with a subject of "Last Name, First Name" and a description of "Birthright Jewel to Descent Jewel Caste | OOC Name" Once you are ready for Jewels, simply reply to the thread and let us know what kind of roll you are using and whether you need any family rolls. You may request up to ten family rolls per character.

Jewel Rolls:
  • You can request a Rose Birthright or a Rose Descent, descent level and Jewel Power (JP) will be rolled for you unless you request no descent.
  • A Light Roll will result in a Birthright Jewel between White and Rose as well as descent unless you specify that you want a Birthright only.
  • A Random Roll will result in a randomly rolled Jewel from no Birthright to Red as well as descent. With this option there is a 1% chance that your character might end up with no Birthright Jewel.
  • Other options can be purchased in the Shop. A Dark Roll from the Shop which will result in a Birthright Jewel between Blood Opal and Red. You may also purchase specific Jewels from the Shop or Character Crates for importing a character and their Jewels.
  • You can also use a Family Roll. If you do this, please link to the original application with the family roll and then we will roll strengths for the Jewels.
  • All Jewel reductions must have the same or lesser descent. You cannot reduce a Birthright Jewel to give your character a greater level of descent. We have descent items for purchase in the shop of you want a higher descent for your character.

When you are finished with your application and ready for it to be looked over by the staff, please reply to the Ready for Review thread so we are aware that it is completed. If you do not post there, your app will not be reviewed.

A Note to Territory Leaders: You have 5 days to complete lore checks before applications will be approved based on staff understanding of your lore. A second reminder that there are pending checks will be sent out on day 3.
