Q: I’ve never read the Anita Blake novels can I still
A: Most definitely! We’re an alternate universe sit so there's no need to be familiar with canon and our guides cover anything you need to know.
Q: Can I make a fey?
A: While there were mentions of fey in the AB books we aren’t allowing them on the site like they were in the books. We do, however, have a yokai character type which allows you to make almost anything.
Q: How steadfast are you sticking to the books?
A: For the most part, we use most of the lore from the books most of our species are canon and the laws in the AB universe still apply here. If you’re familiar with the series and don’t see something you were expecting to see in the guide feel free to come to the staff and we’ll be happy to explain why it isn’t there or why we aren’t holding to that rule.
Q: How long does is take for a character app to be approved?
A: Not long at all, as soon as you’ve activated your account and a staff member is around we generally get to it within 24 hours, but if you need validating, drop us a line in the discord server and we'll get you approved.
Q: I think I’m done with my character application, where do I post it?
A: Click here scroll down to where you picked up your template. You will then go Here to our WIPS, click on new post and post it there under your OOC.
Q: Can I change the application template to fit me, like a free-form app?
A: Unfortunately, no. It confuses other members that might use yours as an example and our powers sections tend to be tricky for the newly joining. We want to keep all our applications consistent.
Q: Can I make a character that is a Yokai or Wanderer as my first?
A: Unfortunately, no again on this one. We have these listed as special species that have to be won or “bought” with points. This means if you decide to join up and you’re around long enough to participate in plots and challenges you’ll be eligible to grab one.
Q: I have a pretty powerful character can I bring them over?
A: You can, but, they will most like be stripped of anything that makes them an alpha/master and you’ll have to work your way up to being that powerful. You can buy powers and status though our points system though.
Q: Can I bring canon characters from the Anita Blake/Merry Gentry series?
A: No, we aren’t accepting canon characters. We don’t accept any kind of characters that have in some likeliness to any in the novels, we respect Laurell far too much to butcher her characters.
Q: Who is on the staff and how can we can get in touch with them?
A: As a rule, there's always someone floating around in the discord (we're all on different timezones) But they are Samantha, Gian Avur, Jo-jo and Leelan
Q: I want to join and make a character that is an alpha or leader as my first. Can I do that? Do you do "leader" auditions or anything?
A: "Leader" positions are generally taken because of how important they are for a group to function and stay active. On the off-chance we have one open up, it will be offered to existing and established members first. We realize some people may find this alienating, but we operate under a loyalty and activity reward system - every active player has an equal chance at titles and positions, but it is something you earn by playing.
