This is the must-read thread for creating your character. You will have a much better chance of being accepted, and believe me- we will know if you have read it as certain rules about the form are only located here.
Name: Must be a name having to do with nature. For those who have read warriors, it's sorta like that but only one of the name parts: ie. Leaf , Flower , Sky , Star , Mist , etc. Must have a second name that is two parts (like a warrior name) and is their parents last name. When two cats beocme mats on of them takes the other's last name. That would be the kittens last name.
For every twenty cats there is one slot available for a cat with a 'non-normal name'. A Non-normal name (NNN) is a name that is in another language or simply a mix of syllables that sounds cool but isn't anything. (ie. Ahjad)
If you wish to role-play a cat with a non-normal name you must check to see how many available slots there are and then PM the following form to me
[b]Ooc Name :[/b]
[b]Cats on the site :[/b]
[b]Name you want :[/b]
[b]Ideas for the cat you want it for :[/b]
[b]Why they have a non-normal name:[/b]*
[b]Your Points :[/b]
*There must be a reason (ie. They only remember being with humans and go by the name the humans gave them.)
View the census to see how many slots are available.
Gender: This is pretty self-explanatory.
Date of Birth: The role-play is set in the present so if they were born on christmas 2005 and its christmas 2007 they would be two years old. They must age the same as we do so you have to up their age every year on their birthday lol.
Height: This is done in centimetres at shoulder. (Roughly between 20 and 25)
Sexual Preference: Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bi, etc.
Status: Neutered/Spayed or not? For a male, either put 'Neutered' or 'Not Neutered'. For a female put either 'Spayed' or 'Not Spayed'
* For those of you who might not know, neutering/spaying is an operation humans get for their cats to prevent them from having kittens. If your cat has been neutered/spayed he/she is unable to have kittens.
Coat Color: See 'Appearances' thread in the encyclopedia.
Coat Pattern: See 'Appearances' thread in the encyclopedia.
Eye Color: See 'Appearances' thread in the encyclopedia.
Fur Length: Short, Medium, Long
Appearance Extra: Scars and such.
History: They cannot have been born on the streets unless their parents are members of this role-play however they can have run away or been a stray for a bit after. Their history should end with them being left on the Old Road but it is not necessary if you really don't want to - runaways are acceptable as well. Minimum of 400 words for a cat 3 years or younger. If older, minimum of 550 words.
Personality: Try to really descirbe your cat. Make him/her interesting and unique. The personality should really show what the cat is about. Are they shy or bold? Fierce or sweet? Flirty or withdrawn? Do they find it easy or hard to love? What are their opinions on kittens? On humans? Try and make the cat as realistic as possible. Try and make the cat interesting with different levels. Is anyone actually constantly happy? Do they have any troubles? Minimum of 300 words but it is preferred you write more if possible. As an incentive, you'll receive 25 points for a personality of over 400 words and 50 points for a personality of over 500 words.
Image: Must be less than 500 x500 pixels.
Your OOC Name: Again, pretty easy. What name do you go by on the Internet?
