Character Template Form

This form helps you create a character article for the Star Army Roleplay. It contains all the fields in the standard biography template and will automatically generate a wiki page for you. This is useful if you're unfamiliar with the Formatting Syntax.

Note: Character pages will be created in wip:character: namespace. They can be moved to character: later after they're approved.

Instructions

Open the character creation guide, Creating a Character, in a separate tab. It will provide instructions and species-specific guides for making characters. As you go through those, fill in the blanks on this form. Remember not to close this tab until you hit the submit button and if you open any links from this form, open them in new tabs so you don't lose your data before you submit.

The page you make doesn't have to be perfect; you can always edit it later.
