4: Beginner's Guide to Supernatural Races & Applications
« on: January 30, 2020, 04:32:18 PM »
As previously mentioned in this topic, the server boasts several playable races. Some are harder to acquire than others, which is mainly due to their complexity or exclusivity in the WoD universe. It is however fairly simple to get into supernatural roleplay if you start low.

Generally speaking, you will need to submit an application to play or acquire any supernatural related things. This level of moderation is needed to keep things relatively balanced and to ensure that the player is knowledgeable enough to hold a race they've received.

There are currently four ways to acquire a race for your character.


I. Starter Races
This system is only reserved for Vampires and Werewolves, and is generally intended to be a system for newbies to try out the WoD systems when they lack in-depth knowledge about a specific race. The steps and prerequisites for this one are fairly simple.

Requirements:
  • You require a level 1 account. If you do not have one at the moment when your character was accepted, you must create a new account.
    ALTERNATIVELY:
    You require an account in which you selected Werewolf or Vampire at the creation phase. (This can be checked in (/stats))

  • You must read Beginner's Guide: Werewolves or Beginner's Guide: Vampires before submitting an application.

If you meet the prerequisites, you can submit an application in the form of a Google Forms/Quiz. The tests are fairly easy. There is a score from 0 to 100. You need at least 80 points in a test to have your race accepted. If you do not meet the quota and score between 60 to 80 points, you will require the guidance of a moderator on the topics you answered incorrectly before being racechanged.

Vampire:
You can attempt the Vampire quiz here: Click me.
Restrictions:
  • You will have 6 clans to choose from at character creation.
  • Your generation will be set to 13th.
  • You will be unable to progress in Disciplines for 10 days of play after creation.
  • You may only choose between the Camarilla, Anarch Movement and Independent affiliations.
  • Your character will be considered a Fledgeling. Your embrace took place no more than 1 month ago.



Werewolf:
You can attempt the Werewolf quiz here: Click me.
Restrictions:
  • You will have 6 Tribes to choose from at character creation.
  • Your rank will be set to Cub.
  • You will not have any Gifts at character creation.
  • You may only choose between the Wyld and Weaver affiliations.
  • Your character will be considered a Cub. Your first change took place no more than 1 month ago.




II. Initiation Program
The Initiation Program is a limited system that allows you to dabble into a race with the help of a direct mentor. Generally, you start playing in a sub-race, and after learning the systems under your mentor - you will be able to acquire full race privileges. Everything is done through IC play, so this is a very good way to retain the progress you've made on a character.



III. Exclusive Applications
If you have sufficient knowledge about the WoD systems and read the specific race books, you are eligible to apply for exclusive races. Elder vampires, advanced werewolves, arete 3 nephandi mages, and so on.

This is done by submitting an advanced application in this board category.

If you meet the Activity & Admin Record requirements, you can follow the format detailed in each topic and submit an application. Following a manual review from your moderator, you will then be given the race. If your answers are lacking, you may be given an in-game quiz to compliment your application.
 
Requirements:
You need to meet one of the following requirements:
  • You require a level 1 account. If you do not have one at the moment when your character was accepted, you must create a new account.
  • You require an account in which you selected Werewolf or Vampire at the creation phase. (This can be checked in (/stats)).
  • You require a Racechange Token which costs $30,000 in game currency or 4 USD. (/buytoken)



IV. Donations and Tokens
If you do not have the time to submit an application but are confident in your ability to roleplay a given race, you may elect to donate. Not only will you support the server, you will be able to gain access to a race instantly without any restrictions. Keep in mind that failing to roleplay an exclusive race, namely Mage, Demon or Changeling - may lead to your character being killed permanently (CK) or your race stripped from you.

Donation Information contains all of the prices and details.

You can use a Racechange Token (30,000$ IG cash or 4USD) to:
- play a Cliath Werewolf of a common tribe;
- play a 12th Generation Vampire of a common clan;
- turn from a vampire/werewolf into a human.

You need to pay more for exclusive races such as Demons, Fera, Mages, Changelings, Hybrids and Beasts.


If you require additional information, don't hesitate to consult the helper team or other veterans on Discord.
