Character Petitions

Caste, Jewel, and Re-activation Petitions

The Templates for All the Petitions of Blood Rites, Along with an Explanation for Each.

Petitions

Petitions are the way to get what you need if it’s really important here at Blood Rites. The following things can all be petitioned: Birthright Jewel, Caste, and Inactive Character Re-Activation. Petitions are to be used for characters that will be integral to the over all plot of Blood Rites – examples of such characters are major political players/schemers, potential ruling characters, villains, etc.

Though it requires far more effort than a conventional application, or even a Jewel OR a Caste petition, you may, on the same character Petition for both Caste AND Jewel.

Please bear in mind that you cannot Petition your first character at Blood Rites; you must have an accepted character before you can begin the Petition process.

When using a petition, or multiple petitions please place them at the bottom of your character’s application, after your history and your offering post.

Birthright Jewel Petitions
Please remember that one never need petition for the following Jewels – White, Yellow, or Tiger Eye, they can be SELECTED at character creation at any time. The following form should be used when you want a specific jewel rank from Rose to Red. New players may not petition for a Birthright Jewel and must have a minimum of one accepted character with 5 in character posts before they can petition a Birthright.

It is important to note, that the darker the jewel, the harder it will be to have your petition accepted, and the harder you will have to work on your application. Jewel requests of Rose-Opal require only ONE stamp of approval, whereas Petitions for Birthright jewels of Green, Sapphire or Red require Staff Majority approval.

You may only petition for the RED jewel once every 5 characters, and not until you have at least four characters with ten in character posts a piece to their names. Once you are denied the Red birthright twice, you lose the ability to petition for this particular jewel for no less than three months.

Jewel Rank Requesting: Jewel Rank (Rose, Summer Sky, Purple Dusk, Opal, Green, Sapphire or Red - The Jewels White, Yellow and Tiger eye are granted upon a simple request!)
Reasons For Requesting this Birthright: Please bear in mind that ‘dark jeweled family’ is NOT an acceptable response, and petitions using this as their sole answer will more than likely be rejected.

Plans for this Character: How does your character having this jewel affect the plot he/she is intended for, and why could they and the plot not be the same without it.

Other Petitions you’ve made here: This only needs to pertain to Character Caste or Jewel Petitions.

Caste Petitions

All Dual Caste males and Dual and Triple Caste female characters require a petition. In order to even be eligible for one such petition the player must have at least 4 characters with 10 posts a piece on them, and been an active member of the Blood Rites community for no less than two months. Requires two Staff approvals.

The petition should be filled out as shown below:

Caste Requesting: ie. Black Widow Warlord Prince, Black Widow Healer Queen.
Reasons For Requesting these Castes: Please keep in mind that the more unusual the request (Natural Black Widow is much tougher than trained for a male) the more explanation will be required.

Plans for this Character: How does your character having this combination of castes affect the plot he/she is intended for, and why could they and more importantly - the plot not be the same without it.

Retired/Inactive Character Re-activation

This petition should be used on any characters who have been willingly retired or have been deactivated due to inactivity.

Why did this character became inactive? Identify the circumstances or reasons as to why the character was inactive or retired.

What will you do to prevent this character from becoming inactive again? Impress upon the Staff how you will maintain activity for this character.

What are your plans for this character? Identify the plot plans are in place to sustain the character's activity going forward.

Number of previous Reactivations: The number of times the character has been reactivated. If none put 0.

Changes Made to Application for Reactivation Process (if any) : Identify any changes, if any that have been made to the application during the reactivation process. Sometimes if a character has been inactive for a long time, minor details need to be adjusted for a player to get the most out of writing and plotting with that character.  These changes may not conflict with our established AU canon.

HBC and Review Council will not be policing applications, but if a deviation from canon is brought to our attention there will be an undefined points fine.

Lost Character Sheets Application/Petition
« Reply #1 on: Jul 15, 10, 09:14:11 PM »
Lost Character Sheets

As we have unfortunately discovered not everything was cached by Google or was able to be recovered after the end of IPBfree. We know that our application process is long and forces writers to dig deep and as such we could never ask for them to do it a 2nd time on those lost characters. It simply isn't fair and we understand (we lost them too). We've devised a way for writers to continue working with those precious characters without sacrificing their sanity to re-write the applications.

Please submit the petition below as your new character sheet for these lost characters only. We do have a recovery database of many files that we were able to get back. Make sure your character is not in this database. Click here for the Recovery Database.

When it comes to the Bullet Point History all you need to do is provide a short list of the major events in the characters life. We are no asking you to re-invent the wheel, absolutely not, but simply call out those big moments (don't even need full sentences, but please use proper punctuation and grammar ;) ) that helped shape the character.

See [http://forums.bloodrites.net/index.php?topic=85.0]Isaar Mikette[/url] for an example of a Lost Character Sheet Application.
