  • Spontaneous or planned RP? Somewhat planned. I'm adaptable.
  • Military or civilian characters? Both, depending on what I'm in the mood for and what those encompass.
  • Humans, androids, anthros, or aliens? Humans or humanoids. I enjoy making machines and other races as well.
  • Being on a starship or being on a planet? Again, both. Let me at em!
  • Roleplay via forum posts or in real-time? Not sure what the contrast is. Either or? I'm pretty flexible when it comes to posting and fairly consistent.

Welcome to Star Army! It was great to have you at the Community Meeting last night. I didn't get a chance to say hello due to technical issues with my discord, but welcome aboard!

"Roleplay via forum posts or in real-time?"

Real time differs because it happens on pads online. Sort of like notepads but whoever you give a link to it has access and can post simultaneously alongside you. There's not a lot of funding for the pad sites so they have been going down over the years, but a few still work and some people do google docs. Those are called JPs or joint posts as they are being worked on jointly.

Welcome welcome!

Usually it shouldn't take more than a day or two. All you're waiting on is for the Game Master of your chosen RP plot to post in the thread or, if you're not joining an existing plot, you can be approved by a character moderator.
