Character Restrictions

Character Restrictions

Restricted characters are those that can be apped but have a more stringent approval process. They will be looked at closely. Once approved, they may be burdened with working alongside staff for plots so more is expected of them. Put in a +request if you are interested in one of these. Banned characters can't be apped at all. Staff NPCs will be run by staff for plot purposes and are not currently able to be apped. Below are examples of each category but keep in mind that given the number of characters created by media sources, these lists are not comprehensive.

Characters from novels, movies and/or television, and games, whether they have a comic or not, are likely banned. Certain concepts that fit very closely - GI Joe can fit seamlessly into SHIELD, for instance - might be exceptions. If you think something might fit the genre, submit a +request and it'll be discussed.. Do not start CG until staff gives the go ahead.
