Restricted, Overused, and Banned Character Types

Character Application

To apply for a character on Eidolon, you will need set your character with the following information in the chargen room in addition to your finger info. Instructions for setting this information on your character bit will be provided there.

It also pays to brainstorm with staff! Part of the reason that we like to brainstorm with players is that we love to give our shinies to our players! What are shinies? They're things that make your character important in their own way. A shiny could be a secret connection or a supernatural object or dirt on another character family. You can only get these things by going through the approval process. However, they must be documented on your sheet or in RP logs to be used in play.

(If you're looking for a TP application it can be found here: )

Feature Characters (FCs)

Feature Characters are those characters who act as the head of a faction or occupy a very important powerful position within the context of the game such as the chief representative of a temple or guild or magisterial household within the city.

Generally these characters are looked to as examples of theme and should be willing to encourage new players and help foster RP on the grid. Before applying for one of these characters, please speak with staff to verify that you have all of the applicable information at your disposal and the concept is solid.
