Your Details

Name     : 
Gender   : 

E-mail :

Note that for "Gender" I am looking for the gender you want to be cast as. All the characters in this game are either male or female. If you want to discuss this further, please get in touch.

How would you prefer your character information be sent to you? Please note that unless you have an extremely good reason to select plain text, I would prefer you to select one of the other formats, which all preserve formatting. And frankly, I'd rather send you a pdf than anything else.

Previous Experience - roughly how many others games of this sort have you played in?

Where are you playing the game?

Note that the following questions about age are just to give me a better idea of how to cast you and to avoid casting 50 year olds as teenagers, etc. It will not necessarily limit your choice of character since I am happy to re-write characters' ages to fit the player if their age is not essential to their plot.
What age range are you happy to play? 
How old are you?                      

What would you like to play

What character/type would you like to play? Please enter a "Y" if you would like to play the character/type and an "N" if you don't want to play the character/type. If you absolutely do not want to play one of these character types, please put an "X" in the box. You will then not be cast as that character type no matter how good the match elsewhere in the casting process. It will be assumed that you don't mind playing any of the characters/factions that you don't mark.

Please note that putting a Y (or an N) in every box is equivalent to leaving all the boxes blank and is not at all helpful!

The Princess Nirnadel and Chancellor Nimroth are specifically named since they are pivotal characters in the game. These characters will be very busy and will be constantly in demand. Please do not select these chcaracters if you are looking for a quiet game!

Character Traits

Please select the following character traits that you would or wouldn't like your character to have. The marking scheme is as before, enter a "Y" if you would like that trait, an "N" if you don't want that trait, leave the box blank if you don't mind and enter an "X" if you absolutely don't want to play a character with that trait. Note you can be as contradictory as you like (ie you can pick both loyal and disloyal, although obviously you won't get both!).

Once again, putting a Y (or an N) in every box is equivalent to leaving all the boxes blank and is not at all helpful!

All the characters are equally important to the game, but they have different roles within the game. The main distinction is between those who are driving the plot and those who are reacting to it. Those who are driving the plot will have to make the running in the game, while those who are reacting will have things happening to them.

As before, please choose which type of character you want with a "Y" or put an "N" if you don't want that type of character.

Plot Driver : 
Plot Reactor: 


Many of the characters are involved in either the economic or military side of the game. While there are some mechanics attached to both aspects of the game, they are not that difficult to master, particularly since all the details are automatically tracked by the Referees.

As before, enter a "Y" if you would like to play a character involved in the economic or military side of the game, an "N" if you don't want to and leave the box blank if you don't mind. Only enter an "X" if you absolutely don't want to play a character involved in the economic or military side of the game. Note that this will SIGNIFICANTLY reduce the range of characters that are available.

Economic : 
Military : 

Final details

Is there anything else you'd like to tell me that would help me in casting? For example, is there anything I should specifically be paying attention to in the answers above? A short sketch of your favourite/perfect character or what roles you like/dislike would also help. Finally, if you have any particular concerns/requirements with costuming, this is the place to say.

Please note that the box is space limited. If, like me, you write reams of stuff, and a scroll bar appears on the right hand side of the box, you will break the form. Please don't let that stop you if you have more to write: just send me the additional details by e-mail.

Please note that the casting form is currently disabled.
