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:

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, a "N" if you don't want to play the character type and leave the box blank if you don't mind playing 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.

There are a number of nationalities in the game. While outrageous accents are encouraged, they are not required and should not put you off playing a particular nationality. The marking scheme is as before, enter a "Y" if you would like to play a character of that nationality, an "N" if you don't want to play a character of that nationality, leave the box blank if you don't mind and enter an "X" if you absolutely don't want to play a character of that nationality.

Specific Requirements

Some of the characters have very specific requirements, so in each case, I have asked about the characters. The marking scheme is as before, enter a "Y" if you would like to play the character, an "N" if you don't want to play the character, leave the box blank if you don't mind and enter an "X" if you absolutely don't want to play that character. This is the only Section of the form where you are encouraged to uses "X"s!

Richard Blanc is the host and founder of the Society of Lady and Gentleman Adventurers of Geneva. This character will be very busy and will be constantly in demand. Please do not select Richard Blanc if you are looking for a quiet game!

Not What They Seem: There may be characters in the game who are not what they seem, but actually don't realise it themselves at the start of the game. If you are NOT prepared to have your perception of your own character completely changed at some point in the game, put an "X" in the box!

Not What They Seem: 

Split Personality: There are zero or more characters in the game who have a genuine split personality which means that within the game, they will have two separate character sheets.

Split Personality : 

Dr Anarchy always appears in public in his (or her) trademark large black hat and red bandana covering his (or her) face! We can supply the costume if requried, but please do not select Dr Anarchy if you are not prepared to wear this costume during the game!

The Squirrel is a costumed adventurer with a secret identify. We leave the precise costume up to you, but the character's face must be covered at all times. Please do not select The Squirrel if you cannot provide such a costume and are not prepared to wear it during the 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 having the trait and enter an "X" if you absolutely don't want 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!). It will be assumed that you don't mind having any of the traits that you don't mark.

Final details

Is there anything else you'd like to tell me that would help me in casting? A short sketch of your favourite/perfect character or what roles you like/dislike would help... Also, if you have any particular concerns/requirements with costuming, this is the place to say. Finally, this is place to tell me if there's anyone you don't want to be cast with/against.

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.
