Create your character profile here by starting a new thread with your character name in it:
http://hollowworld.co.uk/index.php?forums/character-profiles-journals.24/


Include the following information, but please read the advice below as well. These should be seen as a guideline, I recommend reading some of the approved profiles to see how it's done!

Name:
Nickname/Alias:
Age:
Gender:
Race:
Height:
Weight:
Hair:
Eyes:
Skin:
Identifying Marks:
Appearance:
Strengths:
Weaknesses and fears:
Religion and cults:
Profession:

The following is an EXCELLENT little character building guide modified from a tabletop rp called
Shadowrun. It is a bit long winded but if you really consider these things your character will more whole in a way that many movie and book characters never are.

We are shaped by our heritage. Facial features, skin tone, height,
build, race, even aptitudes are influenced by the genes
passed from parent to child. Attitude, too, is taught by parents,
informed by their own lives and their cultural heritage. Where
does your character come from, what is her lineage, who were
her parents, and what did she inherit from them?

Parents can be proud of their children or regret ever bringing
them into the world. Some are loving, and some are indifferent.
All of them are only metahuman and have their own opinions
of their children. Assuming they could speak, what would each
of your character’s parents say about her?

People have control over their own living arrangements. From
the child young enough to use crayons and tape all the way up
to the elderly shut-in who plasters her walls with family photos
and cat pictures, everyone makes their living spaces more personally
pleasing. What is your character’s living space like, and
what has he added or changed to make it his own?

Everyone has beliefs, and many have beliefs strong enough to
be convictions. Some are religious, some are political, some are
social, and some are just about why people are here. What does
your character believe in, what are her convictions (if any), and
why does she hold them?

Everyone has aspects of their personality that grate on someone.
Even the best of friends annoy one another from time to time.
The flaws in a person’s character are as important as the qualities.
What do you dislike most about your character’s personality?

Hollow World is considered by many to be spinning out of
control. If anyone could exert control over it, it would be the
Kings and Queens. These almost god like mortals(?) exert a lot of
influence on everyday life in the realm. Which of the Kings
does your character hold in the highest regard,
which does he like the least, and why (Make this an RP decision, not a "Steel banned me once for spamming so I like Squee more" or some other BS)?

People make acquaintances and friends; we’re hardwired for it.
Humans are social animals. This is especially true in Hollow World,
where often it is not the power you have, but the power you
can borrow, and not who you, are but who you know. There’s a
story behind each and every one of these relationships. What is
the story with your character and her contacts?

It’s Sunday morning, and your character has no commitments
until tomorrow afternoon. What does she do for the day?

Your character has a specific skill set, a list of active skills and
knowledge that define what she knows and her areas of
expertise. How did she come to learn those skills, and how did
she develop them to those levels?

Everyone has their limits. People can be dark, but most people’s
instinct is to draw the line at certain actions and thoughts, and
they keep to their own moral convictions. Is there a moral limit
that your character enforces on the jobs/adventures she takes, and in what
work would she refuse to engage?

Life as an adventurer is by definition outside the bounds of
“normal” life. Adventurers do not truly fit into the lives of
ordinary people, whether they live in slums or mansions. What
does your character think of ordinary life, mainstream culture,
and those who abide by it?

Everyone has nightmares. Sometimes, we forget the dream
completely on waking. Sometimes, the nightmare haunts us or
even recurs. If your character had a lingering nightmare or a
deep-rooted fear, what would it be, and why does he find it so
terrifying?

People tend to attach sentimental value to items in their possession
or people they are close to. They make an effort to
keep these close by and safe. What is your character’s “sacred
object” or “close one,” and how did they come to be so important
to him?

One of humanity’s greatest assets is its ability to look toward
the future and imagine a better life. Even small children
have dreams about what they want to be when they grow up.
What did your character want to become when he was a child,
and what are his goals now?

A person’s appearance can say volumes about him. From fashion
sense, to the colors he prefers, to the way he walks and speaks.
Sometimes, his personality determines his appearance, and,
sometimes, the appearance he chooses to present the world effects
his personality. What does your character look like, and
what inspired his choices?

That was the old whitelist applications, it's not relevant anymore.

However a character profile/journal will greatly help your chances of getting in.
