Canon characters are, as with most sites, some of the most influential members of Tortallan society upon Eastern Lands. While far from being the most important, these characters are by their very nature potential game-changers and plot-twisters. If you are interested in claiming a canon character, we ask that you take a few things into consideration.
Please stay true to the image we have created for these characters. Staff gave each of the Canons a specific "flavor" of personality for a reason, and we do plan to utilize these facets in the future.
A canon character will be considered "reserved" for 7 days once a member has created an account for them. If their profile is not ready for review by the end of the 7th day, the character will be considered free for the next person.
When it comes to playing a canon, there are a few caveats and conditions you must consider before taking one of these characters on. In light of transparency, staff wants you to understand that:
Canons are at the mercy of the staff. This means that we have full rights to affect any of these characters at any time, without permission of the current player. While all characters are responsible for their actions, canon characters are more so. We can choose to kill them off, banish them, or otherwise remove them if we see fit.
Canons must play their role. If staff feels you have taken a mild-mannered, patient, loyal canon and twisted them into a deceitful traitor without reason, we have the right to strip the canon from your control and re-open them to other players. This holds to the above that we have these canons intentionally personalized. **HOWEVER, if we feel the storyline you, the player, has reasonably played out to support the change in the canon, we will allow it.
Canons must stay active. These characters are critical to plots more often than not, and inactivity of a canon when they are needed to move a site plot forward is unwelcome. Should we feel a canon is not being played actively enough - and we will give a warning beforehand - it can be removed or NPC'd by staff at any given time.
Canons are final. This means that no detail of the Canon provided - including age, magic, etc - can be changed. We will allow playby changes but only on an Approved By Staff condition. We also will not allow others to create immediate family of the canon prior to the character being taken, as we feel it fair that the member taking the canon has say in their family.
