We’ve had a lot of new players lately and a lot of activity, which is great to see. This has, however, highlighted one of the complexities with how Blood of Dragons is setup, with many characters having been in play before: staying true to what has been established about a character. If you take up a CGed character, you do have to play that character the way it was setup. You cannot ignore or rewrite parts of it that you do not like.
Your character’s past should, naturally, stay as it has been established. If something about a character’s past appears to contradict something else or seems odd in some other way, please speak to Staff. Sometimes oddities do slip by us at the approval stage and sometimes subsequent players make unapproved additions to History and Events.
Your character’s present situation should also pick up where it last left off. It is particularly important to keep in mind that a CGed character will already have been established as being present in either King’s Landing or Sunspear. If you want to work out that the character went away for a while and have now returned, you need to speak to Staff first and make sure it doesn’t conflict with anything.
Your character’s personality and relationship also need to stay consistent with what has been established. You are able to edit existing relationships and to add new ones, but this must never be used to rewrite a character’s connections to other characters without IC reasons that develop out of actual roleplay rather than just a player’s desire to change something. Do keep in mind that the game is on a 1:1 ratio. Characters can of course develop, both in terms of personality and relationships, but not overnight and not without the roleplay to motivate it.
If you are at all uncertain about any pre-established details about your character and/or whether a change to something is reasonable, please don’t hesitate to contact Staff.
