"omg i have such a good idea for a ship!" has this thought or something similar crossed your mind? if so you should probably put up a wanted ad so that people looking to make new characters can help you out. wanted ads can be for individuals or for groups of characters - just look in the appropriate forum.
character development is all about fleshing out your character through any sort of creative way that you want. this can mean journals, pictures, past conversations, or anything else that is done in pursuit of development. we encourage anyone who wants to take advantage of this forum.
this is where you can pretty much discuss anything you want - whether it is about your life, popular culture, a book you're reading: anything! this is all completely out of character so kick back, relax, and if you are legal grab a cold one and chill.
who doesn't like having a little in-character fun with their characters in an informal manner? games are the perfect way to do just that, and for many of us they are our guilty pleasure. don't worry, most people love them and we all have our favourites so feel free to post and play!
