Welcome to the OOC members-only community for knyghtfall. This community serves as our backstage area. If you're interested in applying for membership in our RPG, please contact the moderators - our e-mail address is knyghtfallmods AT gmail DOT com - or you can leave a comment here. We take at least 24 hours to consider all applications. When applying for a character, please use either the canon or OC application form.

The current cast list can be found here.

In addition to the writing sample, please tell us a little bit about how you see the character, the kinds of stories you'd be interested in doing, etc.

Basic rules to remember when applying:

1. Players may have three characters to start with.

2. Game play is based in and around New York City, but is not excluded to such. If your character lives in or has some sort of tie to New York, you are welcome to apply. We will accept pre-existing RP characters on a limited basis, i.e. if the character's RP canon does not clash with the premise of this community, if the character has a reason to be in New York City, etc. Characters may be OCs, fandom-based OCs, or Canon characters. All are generally welcome within the setting, but please remember that this is present-day New York, on planet Earth. If your character is from the year 3000 and has eight tentacles, chances are it will get some funny looks, even in Times Square. Basic rule here is that if your character fits the setting, then it is welcome to apply to join. Just use some common sense with what type of character you submit.

3. The moderators’ decisions on applications are final. If for whatever reason your character has not been accepted, don’t take it personally. We will let you know why if we can, and you are always welcome to resubmit a tweaked/modified character application after three weeks. The three-week rule makes it fair for other players if they wish to pick up a specific character. We will not necessarily hold a character place for you.

4. Upon acceptance, you will have three weeks to begin interacting. This is a community after all. If you don’t want to play with your character, then don’t submit them. We would like enthusiastic players who are more than willing to play and send their characters to meet and greet. The last thing we want is a community where no one plays or gets mixing with it. If after three weeks there is no interaction within the community with your character, then it will be dropped from the community. Again, if this happens, don’t take it personally. After three weeks, you can the resubmit the character to us if you wish, if the character has not been taken within that time.

5. If at some point you wish to drop the character, please contact the moderators to let us know. We'd appreciate the courtesy, rather than wondering why your character has seemingly dropped off of the face of the communities. You can let us know at the OOC community and it will only take a moment of your time to save ours. Likewise, if you anticipate being away for a period of time and you need to request a hiatus, then by all means please do so. Communication is everyone's friend.

6. This is a moderated community. If problems should arise between players, the moderators will become involved as a last resort, and our decisions will be the final word.

7. RP is consent-based. Purposeful, deliberate god-modding will not be tolerated, period. Omniscient/omnipotent characters need not apply.

8. Absolutely NO chat-speak, period.

9. No duplicate characters are permitted except at the discretion of the moderators, and only if the canon supports the application.

10. Players are required to join both the RP community and the OOC community with their character journals.

11. If your pre-existing character is still involved in other games or RPs, we request that references to those games or RPs be kept to a bare minimum within this community, out of respect for the integrity of this game itself as well as that of other players involved in this game.

12. Due to liability issues, no one under the real-world age of 18 will be permitted.

13. How to get started:

1) Read the rules above.
2) Check to make sure your character is available. This is a list of all the approved or pending character apps already in game.
4) Fill out an APPLICATION.
5) When you've been approved, follow the Character Setup Guidelines.
6) If you're new to RP or just want help getting interaction, feel free to contact any of the moderators, or post in the OOC community.
