    Step 1: Creating an Application Thread
    1. Click on "Forms" at the top.
    2. Choose the faction you wish to apply to.
    3. Proceed to step 2.
    Step 2: Filling Out the OOC Information
    • There are two parts to all the applications: The OOC (Out of Character) section and the IC (In Character) section
    • The OOC section consists of a few parts:
      • Member Name- This is your forum username.
      • Steam Name- This is your current Steam nickname, the name seen by all of your friends.
      • SteamID-This is your SteamID, which can be found here:
      • Roleplay Experience- This is asking you your history with any type of roleplaying. Put a little effort into this part as this will allow the forum members, who give +-support to your applications, the type of person that you are.
    Step 3: The Roleplay Scenario
    • The roleplay scenario is still apart of the OOC section, but I've decided to put it into a different step because you need to take a different approach to this than the previous OOC questions.
    • Your roleplay scenario should be in the format of how roleplay would be on the server (line-by-line and not a wall of text)
    • Your roleplay scenario MUST include the following items:
      • The character of the faction you're applying to.
      • The scene must be appropriate to the faction you are applying to.
        • MPF/CCA: Detaining citizens, fighting anti-citizens, patrolling, re-educating.
        • Resistance: Fighting the MPF/CCA/OTA, freeing citizens.
        • Vortigaunt: Following an MPF/CCA's orders, being beaten.
        • BMD: Selling to the resistance, fighting MPF/CCA/OTA
        • CWU: Selling to citizens, assisting MPF/CCA
        • Hospital worker: Healing citizens and MPF/CCA
        • OTA: Fighting resistance
          • (Thanks to Mondays for this)
      • /me's
      • Attempts, which leads into:
      • As the server implements rolling, rolls must be in the scenario (/roll)
      • Proper grammar
    • Your roleplay scenario is not limited to the required items as listed above. It may have:
      • /it's, to describe the scene
      • OOC information, such as a Citizen stating he doesn't resist.
    • An example of a bad roleplay scenario would be:
    • An example of a good roleplay scenario would be:
    Step 4: The Backstory
    Step 5: Answering the IC Questions
    • Your name- The name of the character you're applying with
    • Physical Description- The exact physical description of your character
    • Skills/Talents- List some of the characters skills/talents. If you have none...then why even try applying?
    • Fears/Disabilities-No fears/disabilities is unacceptable answer. "Perfection is perfect by having acceptable flaws." (Author Unknown); list those flaws.
      • Skills/Talents and Fears/Disabilities must be balanced.
    • Why do you want to be apart of the...- Answer honestly and truthfully.
    Step 6: Waiting
    • Upon completion of the application, click the "Create Thread" button.
    • Applications that have not received a comment may be bumped every 3 days. This time resets once someone replies.
    • Do NOT advertise your application, patience is a virtue.
    Thanks to Tru for the RP scenarios.

    Step 1: Creating an Application Thread
    1. Copy the faction's application format you wish to apply to.
    2. Create a new thread in the correct sub-forum and paste the format into the body of the thread.
    3. Enter the "Thread Title"; this should read: <Forum Username>'s <Faction Name> Application.
      1. Example: BrianC's MPF Application
      2. Abbreviations for factions are okay.
    Step 2: Filling Out the OOC Information
    • There are two parts to all the applications: The OOC (Out of Character) section and the IC (In Character) section
    • The OOC section consists of a few parts:
      • Member Name- This is your forum username.
      • Steam Name- This is your current Steam nickname, the name seen by all of your friends.
      • SteamID-This is your SteamID, which can be found here:
