So, gonna do something slightly different here. As opposed to previous RPs where we've done stat sheets that only get used during fights, and only wind up dragging down the RPs and annoying everyone involved, we'll be forgoing that format and instead focusing on more useful information.

I happened to recall a thread Jonathan and I had been playing around in a while back, so I went back and dug up the beautiful character reference card we created there. I made a couple tweaks, but now it should be ready for use.

SO! What I want from you all is to provide my with the information below, but send it to me via Discord or an OOC thread here on the forum. I will handle the posting of all the character sheets, since I suspect most of you will get confused if you try to work with all the coding involved in the card's construction. Basically, I'm saying don't post in this thread, just read it! Anyway, please send the following:


BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION:
Provide me with the character's full name (including middle names, hyphenated names, juniors and seniors, and so on), the character's main moniker/nickname/title, the character's height, date of birth (once a month/year system is established) and a few notes. If the name or D.O.B. are secret for story purposes, that's fine, just give me whatever can be known.

SKILLS & ABILITIES:
A list of things the character is skilled at (if a common thing) or competent in (if an uncommon thing) performing.

POWERS:
A list of major magical powers. If the character uses magically-imbued objects but does not directly invoke magic through sorcery (inherent magic) or wizardry (spell casting), then it should not be noted here. Because obviously it is possible for characters to know a lot of spells or have a lot of unique powers, so focus mainly on the "base" magic types. For example "Fire Magic" or "Ice Magic" or "Telekinetic Magic" and so on.

WEAKNESSES:
Mental or physical instances that are of detriment to the character. Examples might include physical weakness to sunlight, an allergy to magic, a susceptibility to alcohol or a phobia of spiders. If you list something, please try to make sure your character reacts accurately to that weakness, should it ever present itself in-story.


For the above information, let me know if you think having an experience system would be a good idea. For example, a 1-3 or 1-5 scale of level in each category. If not, we'll skip that and leave things vague.

Example of a completed card (image is temporary until I get the updated one uploaded):
