Addition of Petition to Dual Caste Female applications
« on: Feb 03, 17, 02:23:42 PM »
Hello Writers!
Historically on BR, we have required petitions to be made for male characters with two castes and female characters with three castes. This process has worked well, and helps both the writer in conceptualizing the weight and need of additional caste(s) in their character concept, and the reviewers in determining whether sufficient thought has been given to the additional caste(s) requested.

However, HBC has decided that the same weight and care should be applied to applications for female characters with dual castes. In order to reflect the rarity and significance of these special characters, a short petition form will be required on all dual caste female character applications, just like it is for dual caste male and triple caste female characters now. These characters should reflect a very small portion of the overall Blood population. While there will be no caps added to the number of dual caste female characters one can play, it is HBC's wish that writers will save second and third castes for those characters whose concepts would not work without them.

Currently, dual caste males and triple caste females require two approvals from Review in order to be put in play. Dual caste females, even though they will now use the same petition form, will still only require one reviewer's approval. Those of you who have applied for dual caste female characters before already know that those applications are expected to clearly reflect both castes, and often receive more feedback than single caste characters. It is our hope that the petition will make the requirements for these characters clear from the outset, potentially streamlining your review process.

If you have any questions about this change, we invite you to reach out to HBC via email at hbc@bloodrites.net.

Thanks, and happy writing!

-phinn, on behalf of HBC

A+ And highly approve.

If anyone needs help with these going forward, I would be happy to help answer any questions you may have for the petition process.

Will dual caste female reactivation petitions require the addition of the dual caste petition or are they assumed to meet the requirements since they were already approved?

Previously accepted characters will be fine without the petition, though we will be paying a little more attention to the reactivation petitions for those Cs. We'd prefer it if you can point to specific plot plans for those particular resurrected Cs.
