    What do you call yourself?
    In a number of other places, I've called myself Netto Takashi, but for various reasons, I've decided to instead go with Kappatechy here on Star Army.

    How'd you find Star Army?
    A friend who's just returning after a long absence suggested I might be interested. Apparently his username here is Toshiro.

    What interested you in joining?
    It was recommended by a friend who I do a lot of roleplaying with on Skype. It's at least worth trying out.

    Ever done this text-based roleplaying thing before?
    Yes! Plenty! I was a heavily active member on a Megaman EXE RP forum roughly a decade ago, and have done a lot of one-on-one RPs through Skype in more recent years.

    Any previous experiences you want to share?
    Aside from the above points? Nothing comes to mind.

    Now for the questionnaire!

    Do you prefer:
    • Playing male, female, or other-gendered characters?
      I prefer female characters, followed by other-gendered characters. Oddly, I'm not that interested in playing as my own gender.
    • Spontaneous or planned RP?
      Both are nice, in different ways. When I just want to goof around and have fun, spontaneous RP is preferred, but if I'm interested in committing more time and effort to it, a planned RP can feel more rewarding in the end.
    • Military or civilian characters?
      I have little experience RPing military characters, so I don't have much of a basic for comparison as of yet.
    • Humans, androids, anthros, or aliens?
      I enjoy playing all of those, though if I had to pick one I liked the most, it would probably be anthros.
    • Being on a starship or being on a planet?
      I've done very little starship-based RP, so again, no basis for comparison. Based on what little I have done, though, the two don't feel particularly different. But maybe that's just me.
    • Roleplay via forum posts or in real-time?
      Again, both have their upsides and their downsides. Real-time posting allows one to go through a whole scene while still in the same mindset as when they started it, but forum posting allows more thought and care to be put into each post, and it's less likely the other poster(s) will interrupt you mid-speech.
    On a scale of 1 to 3, what's your preferred level of these in your RP:
    • Language: 1-2, though I don't often go above 1 myself, and can handle 3 from others
    • Violence: 1
    • Sexuality: 1-3, depending on my mood at the time
    What's something cool you'd love to RP?
    Umm... an ice fairy? A yuki-onna? I dunno, I'll just RP whatever comes up, I guess.

    Welcome to Star Army! Looks like you've already got your eyes on a plot and started up a character, so you should fit in fine!

    Don't forget to drink your Chil Mil for brain power before posting

    A lot of Star Army members, including myself, play some characters who are differently gendered, so that's pretty normal in this RP community. I think you're going to fit in well.
