Ilium is a different sort of roleplay. Traditionally, RPs are about player-player interaction. Here, we take an approach that is more similar to collaborative fiction. This style of writing means that your lasting mark on ilium will be a unique contribution to our world, and may not necessarily be the types of back and forths you are used to. Please read the Introduction before posting here. This thread is only for complete applications. No WIPs. Only 1 character per player (for now) Feedback will be given via PM. Please message any questions to @unanun HIJACKS MAY HAPPEN, A CHARACTER IS A VEHICLE FOR THE STORY Code: [b]Name:[/b] (no modern names) BE BRIEF!

THIS IS NOT NECESSARY. YOU CAN REVEAL THIS IN THE ACTUAL GAME. How awesome can I be? This roleplay runs on the Karma System. What that means is, you can be as powerful as you want, but with great power comes great responsibility. Asmodeus and Tegan will reward good roleplaying, not good powergaming. So if you dominate too much, interfere with other players too much, or get too cocky, there will be consequences. Here's an example: Using magic burns calories. The more magic you use, the more you need to eat, hydrate and rest. What's more, maybe it ages you prematurely, or gives you long-term medical issues. Here's another example: Martial artists need to practice every day. You need to stay fit and limber, because muscle memory soon fades. And one more: You've got a great sword? You need to keep it maintained. Sharpen it, stop it from rusting, ensure the hilt is rebound and treated correctly. The more you try to abuse the power levels in the roleplay, the more likely you are to pull a muscle, catch an illness, break your shit, fall off a cliff or attract the attention of mind-raping psychic parasites.
