If you get accepted, you’ll need to be able to seriously commit to the role once you get your character page set up on the wiki. Try to be on and post at least once a week (Sunday through Saturday). However, if you do end up take long absences, you can easily explain away these absences with the RP-wide plot point that time in the town doesn't work like it does in the real world.
On a related note, if you have your characters in frequent interactions with other players’ characters, don’t always rely on the other player to start paras. You have to take initiative sometimes, too.
Multiple Character Auditions
You are more than allowed to have multiple characters.
You can only have one para per character at one time. That way, your character(s) won’t be in two places at once. Trust us. This has happened before in our sister RPs on Tumblr.
How do I audition?
On our info blog at https://the-lost-town-rp-admins.tumblr.com/, just click on the “Submit” button and fill out the form. If you’re accepted, you have 24 hours to set up your character page here on the wiki.
What sort of information do I need to include in my audition?
- Your name
- Your age (because we can’t guarantee there won’t be PG13 content)
- Your time zone (to take into account scheduling issues)
- Any RP experience
- The character’s bio (name, age, etc.)
- The face claim you want the character to look like
- Instead of a sample paragraph of writing, write a bit about their early life.
How many characters can I create?
You can create as many as you like. It’s a good idea to have multiple characters, in case one of yours dies, and you want to keep RPing.
What is a face claim?
Basically, it’s the actor or actress who the character is modeled after.
If I want to start a para with someone, how do I set it up?
