Here are a few notes you will want to consider when building your character application for marvel_nextgen:
Alternate Universe and Time displaced canon characters are welcome, as are totally original characters. Not every character is going to have parents that were X-Men or Avengers. So feel free to use your imagination!
Adult versions of any canon teenagers are welcome, as well as canon characters and villains in their adult incarnations. (Ie: Julian Keller, Kate Bishop, Tommy Shepherd, Billy Kaplan, Nico Minoru...)
Please also note that Xavier's is not publicly known as a place for mutants. There is an underground network in place to direct mutants to Xavier's. The Avengers are listed in the phone book and publicly known. Characters can directly contact them.
* No close relatives of active player characters will be accepted without approval from the player(s).
* Applications for close relatives of semi-active or inactive characters, including siblings, MAY be accepted at moderator discretion. Players of those inactive or semi-active characters will be given advance notice and opportunity to comment, but they will not have the final say. These new relatives may be required to be estranged or from an alternate universe, if that would fit our continuity better.
Feel free to contact the mods at the email below and we'll answer any questions you have!
When your application is complete, please email it to the mod team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give us at least 48 hours to look at your application. We will email you when the app is approved. Once it's accepted, you can jump right in. If we have any problems or questions with any applications we'll contact you for clarification. In some situations a sample with another player may be required.
When your application has been approved, please then do two things:
1. Join both the IC comm and OOC comm with your character journals.
2. Click on this link to track the OOC comm to be notified of new posts. This will keep you up to date on what's happening in the game.
