RTJ Format
WARNING: MAKE SURE TO READ THE LORE POSTS BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR RTJ. THIS IS NOT GOLARION.

To submit your RTJ, please fill out the following form:

Character Name:
Species:
Class:
Alignment:
Homeland:
Background:
Appearance:
Personality:
Goals:

I would also appreciate a writing sample (of any kind, really), to check for style and grammatical ability. I don't need your grammar to be perfect, so don't feel discouraged if you are dyslexic or have a few issues. I only need it to be understandable.

Why such a long RTJ?
I want your characters to be interesting, complex, fleshed-out people, not just a list of numbers on a sheet. They should work with the world, and they should have a goal, preferably one more interesting than "I want adventure!" or "Money, dear boy!" That's not to say that wanderlust or a mercenary attitude can't factor into your character, but they should be well-thought-out and roleplayed accordingly.

Why "species" instead of "race?"
Because I am PC trash and because most fantasy "races" are actually species by the most common definitions of the term.

How far can I go with my background?
Do not worry about that section of your RTJ getting too big. I have a serious brainboner for backstory, and I will do my best to integrate personal connections, especially rivals, into the game. The only limit is that you shouldn't mess with the established lore; beyond that, let your imagination run wild.
