family roll calls, how do they work?
« on: August 21, 2017, 01:39:33 PM »
I have ideas floating around about doing a family roll call at some point in the future.  how does one typically go about getting this setup, getting your lore approved by staff, etc?

Here's what I did with an elf family role call I made:

1. Died.
2. Thought about it a bit.
3. Jotted down some documentation ideas, formatted nicely.  About a page since it was actually a tribe, outlining the things the help file asked us to outline.
4. Submitted a Role Application Request with the documentation I had drafted up.
5. Staff and I went back and forth tweaking it.
6. Staff gave me a Request # to post on my chargen character's bio.
7. Posted in Player Announcements a brief announcement saying I was accepting applications for family members.  I asked them for playtimes, since I wanted to play together.
8. Went through the apps and picked four of them.
9. I sent sorry messages to the ones that didn't get accepted.
10. I entered the game through chargen using the Request # staff gave me.
11. I told the other family members my PC's name via PM.  I also insisted that I didn't want very much OOC communication.

Step 12 is optional, but that's when half your family dies within the first IG week.
