[OFFICIAL] AG Characters
Posted Mar 15, '09 at 7:12am
Hi, it's me. I've been watching and discussing and we've come up with a proposal.
...here comes a big OP. But if you're interested in putting your character here and you're an AG regular, I advise you to read the entire post carefully.
There have been a growing number of fictions that involve some of the users portrayed as characters, or user characters. For this reason, despite the presence of previous threads of a similar nature, I've decided to make this one, the purposes of which will be:
* To have all pertinent information on any of the characters regularly depicted in AG forums in one place.
It's the latter reason that is important because some people might wish that a character is portrayed as accurately as possible, especially the creators themselves. I don't wish to monopolise on this, but this thread will be run very strictly for the sake of tidiness. This is how it will work:
1) Fill out the template. I will detail this later.
So to emphasise, the only posts here will be character templates. There will be absolutely no commentary on the characters or any other off-topic posts on this thread- I will automatically delete those comments for the sake of neatness.
One other thing, we're trying to keep this to a minimum so I will also delete characters that have either just been concocted for the purposes of being involved in this thread, or have not been used in larger fictions on AG, e.g. the MWT, Moderation Wars, Chronicles of AG, SoS etc. I understand this is arbitrary and may appear exclusionary. Again this doesn't mean I have outright rejected your character but you will need to become more involved in the community before applying again.
Now, the Template. This is in a fairly standard format:
1) Images of your character, or a link to said images.
Remember, this is an official thread. It is up to you as to how much detail and what details you provide but make sure you're pretty set on the level that you would like other people to follow. Once again I expect the character sheets here to have a great deal of thought put into them.
Finally, if you want to include a character that belongs to somebody else in your fiction, you need to ask first. That applies regardless of this thread. Unless you are writing a work of parody, which is exempt from certain copyright laws.
Okay, that's it for now. Have fun!

Well alright, what images do we need? I have asked most of the people for my stories, yet some do not reply or are inactive. In this case what do we do?

Above post stays because clarification is needed.
By "images" I mean images of your character and things related to your character. This can include character's possessions, special or essential features and even character's house. However they must be 100% relevant and preferably original stuff, or at least posted with permission. For example, (if we're talking about Strop) a portrait of Strop is fine but a picture of a random horse with the caption: "This guy on two legs" is not...unless you want some very confused readers!
Last point: obviously post only your own characters!

Further clarifier: Cholokid's character (whom I call El Cholokid) is his intellectual property. I merely visualised it with a concept sketch:
Cholokid, George the Duck (c) Cholokid

Alright, so Cholokid kicked us off, so I'll show you how I do it. I tend to be relatively finnicky so I'm going to include a lot of detail:
Original Strop concept. Note Strop's unmasked face.
Alias: Strop. Strop is short for StrawPony. The reason behind this alias is a secret.
While not of superhuman strength or possessing any special ability, Strop is very agile, physically skilled and surprisingly hardy.
Clothing: Main dress is his ninja suit- a one-piece black jumpsuit with a black hood that has openings for his tail, ears and a slit for his eyes. Over this he wears dirty white bandages that cover his cannon and the distal half of his forearms, up to the fingers.
...it is never made clear what he does when he needs to pee.
When off-duty he can be seen wearing a t-shirt or a tank top and gym shorts, or a tracksuit depending on the weather.
Note: As a moderator Strop has the power to summon and dispose of these at will.
Personality: Complex. Affable and approachable most times. Almost always hyperactive and enthusiastic. Appears to be violent, impulsive, irreverent, a simpleton and a ditz but is in fact gentle, measured, respectful, considerate and observes a deep sense of duty and discipline.
Occupation: Moderator, healer. Frequently leaves AG to go on "secret missions", by which he means doctor's training.
LOL SO CORNY. Oh well, there you go.

Oh well, better get to it... Lack of structure...
Cenere, usually called Cen for "some reason"..
Male, whatever people say..
Discount glasses, the darn glasses are glued to the frame..
Lacks sleep a lot, and can be found sleeping in the Tavern after a night of wandering the Streets of AG. Eats rarely, depending on him having money or not (This gives Strop plenty of opportunities to compare him with Raskolnikov, the protagonist of Crime and Punishment).
He is a student and freelance artist, and now judge of the ASC (it gives nothing!!). Zombie slayer in training.
Lives in a rather small apartment on second floor. Usually rather messy with clothing, papers and books, but he cleans it once in a while.

OK so lets see I shall just show the character based off of my self for now, as that is I feel like showing for now(I had one for Sasquatch that I think is really nice,but I think I might hold on to it till a second MWT comes up,or until I feel like showing it)Anyways...
Alias:Crimson(I have had that nickname since the early days when I first made it last year on Xbox Live
Height: You figure it out!!!
Clothing:Has a black article of clothing of some sort...I already said that,but other then that the rest of clothing is to be deciphered later
Personality:Prefers to be alone,unless around people with similar interests and enough maturity to not get annoyed by them,but other then that just a ridiculously mellow person who according to some needs to show more emotion when speaking
Likes:Crimson Blades!!!!!oh yeah and video games,as well as food...food is good.
Dislikes:You...and your little dog too...and if you don't have a dog then I will get you a dog so I can dislike it,OK seriously though...
Real Dislikes:Noobs,Spammers,immature freshmen,Potheads,stir fried vegetables,anyone who says "thats what she said" a lot,people who think they can rap but are horrible at it,the group ICP(I swear they are at the top of my list on music groups that I hate),any form of alcohol or drugs(including cigarettes and any substance that is illegal),and finally Zombies...yes that is why I enjoy the Game Resident Evil 5 and the Zombie Survival Club.
Occupation:Lately doing a lot of Odd Jobs
There you go my character sheet...or attempt at one at least.

Guys, maybe this will make it a bit clearer- though I didn't want to put it in these terms...by regulars, we're thinking users who have, say, at least ~1000 posts, the majority of which are in the Art forums.

Alright, so I have decided that I found a relatively awesome character to display as me:
Most used picture (normal dress):
Original concept (Pivot stick figure, strictly for animations):
Meditation wear (for rest time):
Alias: Phil (Real name), Chaik(Shortened version of his last name, given by father), Mills (Mother's maiden name), slliM (Old Aim handle, uses as name on many forums), Skittles (No one knows how this name came to be).
Phil is a very agile stick. He has been known to freerun in his free time, but does not like to lift weights. His most powerful muscles in his body are his legs. He is quite the stealthy one.
Height: 5 foot 2 inches. Very short.
Clothing: Main dress is displayed in picture 1 - Skinney jeans, prep shirt, usually black or white, boxers, Nike Jordans, and his lucky Wu Hat.
He has also been known to keep a knife in his pant leg.
When he is "Just Chilling" he strolls around in baggy sweat pants, shirt optional. During this time, he may or may not wear his flip flops.
Optional: DS, iPod, BlueBerry (Mock Cellphone).
Personality: Appears to always be doing something stupid. Phil has ADHD along with dyslexia, this doesn't stop him from defending his self, it just toys with his mind a bit. Very approachable. Sarcastic at most times. Can be a real pain in the arse if he gets bored. Acts very kiddish at times, but can take control of a situation very easily.
Occupation: Theif. Buisiness Consultant. Subsitute teacher. Con-Man. Especially that last one. There has been two nationwide manhunts on him because of his job. Only went to jail for one.
