Getting Started

Here is everything you need to know to get started creating a profile for your character. Read and follow everything on this list and help us to keep Nevereskaya running smoothly.

First things first - Join an account!


Character Portrayals & Claim

-First thing is to find which actor/actress/etc. that you would like to use to portray your character.

-We are strict when it comes to portrayals. You must choose a person that fits the historical/fantasy theme of Nevereskaya . We will still allow images "out of the timeline" IF the image can be edited to remove/hide the portions of the image that are not time-appropriate. 

-When you think you've found a potential portrayal, make sure he/she has not already been claimed. (See 'Official Character Claim List' the always updated list of portrayal claims). If your choice has not already been claimed, you need to claim that person on the 'Character Claim' board as soon as possible. Note: claim your portrayal under that character name. Use this thread to upload images for your Profile.

-See our 'Clans and Families' page to see if you would like to join one of the noble families. 
 

 

Character Forum Accounts

-Character avatars must be only of that particular character. If you don't have an avatar, Admin's will add one for you of your character portrayal.

-Do not link to anything in your character accounts section 'web site'. Management will add a link to your character profile once it's been approved and is available on the website. 

-You may role-play before you've finished you're character profile, but you must at minimum complete the demographic layout below prior to posting. You have a week to finish the History section of your character profile.
 

 

Your Character Profiles

-All Nevereskaya characters are required to have a character profile.

-No pornographic material. No pictures that are not of your character. 

-Do not direct link (copy/pasting pictures from inside or outside this site). The best thing to do is to load your pictures on a site like http://www.photobucket.com and use the code they provide to add your pictures to your character thread. (the [IMG] code) Administration will create graphics for your page from these images if you aren't photoshop savvy.

- Go to The Empire of Nevereskaya and use the login form at the bottom of the page. Login using the same login you use on the forum (character profiles are listed under your Primary account (OOC or Character if you don't have an OOC Account).
