 Application Template, and rules
Ace

|APPLICATION RULES|
  • When filling out the application, TOPIC is your character's codename and TOPIC DESCRIPTION is their actual given name.
  • If anyone else apps with a name from pokemon they will be directed to a pokemon roleplay site. This is a Marvel RP. Please keep that in mind. That also goes for Harry Potter, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, and Star Trek.
  • Do not change the format of the template. We will not even look at your application. We will simply deny it.
  • This site is loosely based on Marvel Comics, following its own alternate timeline. We welcome Canons and OCs, mutant or human. We have recently opened up applications for Street Level heroes outside of the X-Men, X-Staff, New Mutants, and Brotherhood of Mutants. And, as always, we have an Unaffiliated faction for those who do not fit anywhere.
  • Do not post WIP applications. We will delete them. Only your best, polished, completed applications should be posted.
  • Before apping a NEW character, you must have your last character at least one full month and post with them a minimum of ten times to ensure they are developed as a character. Remember we are about quality, not quantity.
  • REGARDING CANONS, please understand that we are granting a great deal of artistic license and look forward to your interpretation of the characters we love, but Staff does reserve the right to remove a character from a player if we feel they are compromising the integrity of a character. Do not worry, we will speak to you first regarding characterization. If a player continues to write OOC, we will do what we have to to preserve the integrity of the game. You are welcome to see our list of taken canons here.
  • REGARDING OCs, please try to be original, but realistic in equal measure. Not every character can be a badass ninja sharpshooter spy with perfect hair and the ability to walk away from an explosion without looking. Despite this being fiction, keep it realistic and don't go heavy on the cliches or sue-isms in your application. Characters, like people, are flawed and imperfect and even in the Marvel Universe, not everyone is a superstar (ie. Clint Barton). In terms of names, please pick one not already in play.
  • OCs can have up to two (2) powers that relate to each other. For example Menagerie can speak to animals and take their form. Hellfire can channel energy from a hell dimension and is immune to temperature extremes.
  • Pick whoever you like as a face claim so long as they are not already taken. You can see the list of FCs already in play here. We ask that you ensure the celebrity you choose suits the character.
  • Application images are to be 500x250. If this is difficult for you, we have made an empty frame for your convenience. Just put a picture inside of it.
  • Staff will always be willing to help bring your application up to the standards we expect for this site. We will encourage and work with you to make the very best character you can. That being said, please understand we cannot write the application for you. The point of the application is to show us you have a firm grasp on your character's personality, power, and history. We require you to adequately explain your character to our satisfaction. If you don't understand them how can you RP them?
  • Do not plagiarize off of the X-Men wiki. It is a resource to encourage and inspire. Not to be copy/pasted.
  • Here on Marvel: Evolution, we recognize that there are powers that are far too vast and affect game balance to an extreme degree. As such, we have a soft ban on the following powers. If one wants to use them, please contact a member of the Administrative staff so we can discuss if it is an acceptable exception. For example, Backup can back up an item or person's personal timeline as a form of time manipulation, but does not have full fledged time travel powers.
    -Reality Warping
    -Time Travel
    -Full Precognition
    -Power Cosmic (ala Silver Surfer)
    -Powers that fully remove player control of their own character
    Staff will have the right to decline mutations that are not explained well, or are severely overpowered.

Powers will be closed to OCs when a mutation set has three active users on the board. Capped powers will be bolded. Feel free to ask a member of the staff to negotiate.
Capped powers for OCs include:
  • Animal Shape-shifting/Traits
  • Bone Claws
  • Healing
  • Healing Factor
  • Telekinesis
  • Telepathy
    Also included in OC caps are mutants under the age of 13, as very young mutants are rare and there are oodles of canons that are available if you would prefer a younger character.
Capped powers for Canons include:
  • Spider-Man based powers - wall crawling/web slinging
  • Adamantium usage


|SPECIAL CHARACTERS|
    Special Characters currently include: X-Men's First Class (Jean Grey, Cyclops, Beast, Angel, Iceman)
  • These cannot be first characters. If you are interested, please feel free to PM the staff for information.
  • You must be a member of this site for at least one month, in good standing on the site, and not be on probation from activity check to audition for a special character.
  • Failure to achieve your monthly post requirement (4 posts) in any character will result in losing your special character. If you have special circumstances, please speak to any of the Admins so we can work with you. We want to see everyone succeed.
