We need to set up a system for auditing and approving new characters, especially if we're going to go public and start advertising the group in the future. Doesn't need to be too in depth, just a quick once-over from someone to make sure everything's on the level and legal by the rules we're using. A rough skeleton of the process might look something like this:
- The player posts a thread in a 'Character Approvals' category. This post should include:
- The character's name
- A link to their completed character sheet
- Optionally, information on the character's appearance, personality, and background
- Links to any material outside of the Core Rulebook for easy reference
- Someone in charge of character approvals (possibly a Councilor, but we may wish to take volunteers for this duty) looks through the character sheet and relevant material to make sure it's all rules legal, and then either Approves or Denies it.
- If the character is Approved the player has permission to make a wiki page for their character (which must link to their approval thread), and can now play their character. If they're Denied, they need to make adjustments to the character and then update their thread for someone in charge of approvals to take another look at it.
For example, a thread might look like this (using Vera as an example):
Title: Vera Song, Tiefling Cleric
Appearance: At 6'1 and 260 lbs, Vera is massive and imposing. She has a stocky, wide frame, and despite her weight maintains impressive physical strength and endurance. Her skin is thick, tough, and covered in a thin sheen of white hair, contrasting with a serpentine tail coated in shaggier hair and bat-like ears that betray her otherworldly heritage.
Vera usually wears light, minimal clothing in town, but keeps robes around for formal situations and padded chain mail if it's apparent that battle will be necessary.
Personality: Generally boisterous and assertive. Has a closer definition of 'personal space' than most, which can make her seem artificially threatening. Friendly and energetic when she's in a good mood, but has a biting, sarcastic side.
