In Remnants, characters are everything. They drive the plot, and they make the story what it is! Once you've created an account and read our rules, you're ready to make your character!
This thread will guide you through using our character sheet template to make your character. Due to the mechanics used on our site, we use a specialized character sheet, so please do not use your own templates. If you have any trouble with this template, please contact Finch , as they coded the template. If you have any questions about character creation in general, feel free to contact any staff member.
Your image may be an image of your character, including art or a faceclaim. If you include an image that is not yours, please include credit at the bottom of the template. You may also include an icon or symbol that is related to your character. As long as it is related to your character and is appropriate, it is allowed. Please ensure that the image you choose is square, or it will not show up properly in the template. It may also not be transparent.
In order to replace the image on the character sheet template, replace the url in the following code with your image's url. If the image does not show up, try uploading it to a separate image hosting site. Proboards can be picky when it comes to images.

To start off, you'll need some basic information about your character.
Name - Your character's name is entirely up to you, though we ask that it is different from your own name, to avoid confusion. Please only put your character's first name in the "name" slot on the template.
Faction - Your character may be in any of the factions of Seattle, or they may be outside of them entirely. Information about the factions can be found here. If you wish for your character to be factionless, write "loner" in place of a faction name.
Rank - Each faction has their own rank system. These systems can be found in the allegiances of each faction, found in the allegiances board. You may select to be of any rank, as long as that rank is open. If your character is not in a faction, simply list "none" for rank. This also applies for the Jackals, as they do not have a system of ranks.
Pronouns - Your character may have any pronouns, regardless of their gender identity or presentation. You may put multiple sets of pronouns if you would like.
Age - Your character must be 16 or younger. Creating characters with certain traits may merit special benefits! To learn more, see the points thread.
HP - For information about HP, see the HP thread.
Next, there are three sections for writing more in-depth about your character. Appearance is required, while personality and backstory are optional. If you chose not to write for a section, please delete the section from your sheet so that it does not take up space.
Appearance - Describe your character's appearance in words. Your character must be human, and is not allowed to have any non-human features. Unless you have purchased the Physical Abnormality perk, your character may not have any unnatural features. This does not include reasonable changes your character has made to their appearance, such as dying their hair. Such changes are allowed.
Backstory - Describe your character's personal story. How did they get to Seattle? What hardships have they faced during the apocalypse? If they are in a faction, why did they decide to join? Your backstory may be as minimal or as detailed as you choose.
Personality - Describe your character's personality. This may be as extensive as you choose. Some things to think about may be your character's likes and dislikes, reputation, and personal philosophy.
Finally, mechanical information about your character is needed.
Abilities - For information on abilities, see this thread.
Skills - For information on skills, see this thread. If your character's skills overflow the table provided, feel free to make a second skill table below the first.
Advantages - Advantages are special perks purchased from the point shop. If your character has no advantages, you may leave this table blank, or delete it altogether (don't worry, it can be added back in later.)
Once you have filled in your template, go ahead and post it to our Character Applications board. If you wish to post your character sheet before it is finished, please put "WIP" (work in progress) somewhere in the thread title.
An admin will review your posted character application as soon as possible. If it is accepted, the thread will be moved to the appropriate allegiances board. Then, you're ready to start roleplaying! Create an account for your new character, using their name as your username, and start your adventure!
