Applications for a Monstrous PC or AMPC
« on: October 26, 2006, 03:34:04 PM »
Before applying for a monstrous PC (MPC) or Atmospheric MPC (AMPC), please make sure to read the introduction here. Make sure you feel yourself able to fulfil the role with it's demands and genuinely interested in playing it as such. It is generally a selfless experience, where the satisfaction of playing the role comes from the roleplay satisfaction you bring to others.

There are further some practical conditions and terms playing a MPC or AMPC:

- The prospective Monstrous PC player cannot have been banned for anything within the past 6 consecutive months of active play.  (That means none of this getting banned and disappearing for 5 months, then playing for a month and claiming to have been good for the last 6.)

- The prospective candidate must have a minimum of 3 consecutive months playing time.

- Needs to prove detailed knowledge of the particular monstrous subrace they are requesting (as per written application with cited sources of monstrous mythology).

- Monstrous PC's may be subject to forced closure if captured (circumstantial), and should be ready to accept this unconditionally.

- Only one MPC per player at any given time. If your MPC is brought to closure, you may apply for another, though you are not guaranteed to get a new one simply because you had one before. You may play both a MPC and an AMPC at the same time however.

- Please keep in mind once your character becomes MPC it is in far the most cases final. The DM Team will not be accepting requests to revert a MPC to a regular PC, with the only exception being when curing lycanthropy, but even that is a very involving process and won't be done unless very compelling IC reasons points toward it.

- Only existing PCs will be made into MPCs. You may not start a brand new character off as a monster. Existing PCs will transform into monsters as the result of a plot/event and will totally be in-character. If you want to start out as MPC, apply for AMPC instead (see below).

- All MPC's have a six month expiring date.

- MPCs can apply for extension of the period if there are circumstances that speak in favour of it (OOC circumstances or if it's clear that things are heading toward culmination/closure but just need a little more time to bring it about). Just send a PM to the DM team explaining the reason in brief.

- Characters who are at the 5th stage of the Dark Corruption path (DP 5) now count as MPCs (being subject to the same terms).

Please submit your application using the form below to any of the active DM's on this list. Please note that all Monstrous PC applications are subject to review by the entire DM Team and are not a guarantee in and of itself that your PC will become one.

The current playable Monstrous subraces are: Death Knight, Dread Flesh Golem, Dread Revenant, Ghoul, Mummy, Red Widow, Vampire, Vassalich, Werebear, Wereboar, Werecrocodile, Werejackal, Wereleopard, Wererat, Wereraven, Werewolf and Wight. We may add more in the future.

Atmospheric MPC (AMPC)

As an alternative to the regular MPCs, we also offer the possibility of playing an AMPC. The  most distinguishing feature is that they are PCs that start out as MPCs. The application process for AMPCs is done quicker, especially if you have successfully played a MPC or AMPC before. The other requirements remain the same.

Further features worthy of note are:

- Compared to regular MPCs, they should particularly be played with emphasis on building atmosphere rather than story. They should be played as more cunning adversaries than regular AI controlled foes in the world, raising general sense of fear and adding an element of uncertainty. They still need to be careful of not grieving low level players though, and if possible, prefer scare rather than slaughter when victims are willing to be scared.

- Their life duration is by default 6 month (182 real life days), but exceptions can on rare occasions be made, if it serves the atmospheric purpose. Deciding this will be up to the DM team.

- A player can only have one AMPC at a time. You may play both a MPC and an AMPC at the same time however.

- You can send in an application for an AMPC even if you currently have one, but if accepted, you won't be allowed to play the new AMPC before the prior dies or expires.

- By default, an AMPC start out as level 13. More experienced/successful MPC players may be allowed to start out as higher level if able to provide convincing reason for requesting this. Higher level MPCs will be expected to avoid hunting lower level zones.

To apply for an AMPC, follow the same process as with MPCs, but clearly specify that you are applying for an AMPC.
