How would you prefer your character information be sent to you?

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

Which run of the game are you playing in?

Note that the following questions about age are 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                     : 

Who would you like to play

What sort of character would you like to play? Please enter a "Y" if you would like to play a particular character or a member of one of the main groups listed below and a "N" if you really don't want to play the character/group member. Note that in all cases the character's gender will be your own and all characters can be either male or female. It will be assumed that you don't mind playing any of the characters/group members that you don't mark.

Various characters have different levels of plot, which are defined below. As before, please put a "Y" if you would like that level of plotting and an "N" if you really don't. Note you can put a "Y" next to all three if you like, but please don't put an "N" next to all of them!

All the different characters are equally important to the game. A plot-light character is likely to have plenty of time to develop and choose which plots to get involved in. In contrast, a plot-heavy character is going to be busy pretty much all game long and isn't going to have to go looking for things to do!

Light: has no specific plots of their own, but lots of hooks to get into other people's plots
Medium: has a few plots of their own and opportunities to get involved in other people's plots
Heavy: more plots than you can shake a stick at...


Finally, please select the type of goals that you would like your character to have.

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 there is anything/anyone that you absolutely don't want to play, then now's the time 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, a scroll bar will appear on the right hand side of the box. At this point, you have just broken the box and I will not get all of the information in the box when you hit "Submit".

Please don't let that stop you if you have more to write: just e-mail me the additional details. Thanks.

Please note that the casting form is currently disabled.
