Harsh Light of Day
This survey is optional, but we really hope that you'll all fill one out because it helps us do a few important things:
1.) Gives us a better understanding as to what you, the player, like in a LARP.
2.) Helps us (and you) understand your character a little more before they hit the floor.
3.) Gives us some starting off points for your character to better integrate them into the world.
Plus, you get 5 whole experience points for filling it out and sending it to us! That's an extra game's worth of XP right there, plus one!
The survey comes in two parts, an Out of Character portion where we ask you, the player, to answer some questions, and an In Character part which simulates some of the paperwork your character would have had to fill out to become an Ambassador. Just copy-paste the whole thing into the body of an e-mail, fill in your answers, and send it off to email@example.com
Please try to answer the OOC portion as honestly as possible, it's for your own benefit, after all! For the IC part, put down the answers your character would, in their own voice. If your character would lie on the application (naugthy, naughty!), then please write down their falsehoods along with the truth in brackets, like so: Filthy lies and slander. (The terrible, unfiltered truth)
The lies will be what NPCs who have read these papers believe, but it's important for us STs to know the real reasons behind your characters actions. This allows us to tell a better story for everyone involved! Ready? On with the survey!
