-There are pros and cons to playing an independent character. On one hand, you are able to go anywhere in the setting at your leisure, only interacting directly with faction managers and the setting manager when necessary. On the other hand, as a role-player it may be difficult to find other player characters for yours to interact with and some of your threads might be considered "​[[guide:glossary:canon|soft canon]]."​ Rather than having a forum to roleplay in, you will generally be using the top-level forum of the nation your character happens to be in, (for example, the Abwheran Star Empire forum) or the Other Factions and Independent Ships forum. Sometimes you may be the only poster in your thread. For this reason, we recommend independent characters for motivated, prolific writers with some familiarity with (or interest in researching) the [[sarp:​sarpiverse]].+There are pros and cons to playing an independent character.
