Your Character Portrait

Character Page Template was an sample page made to help people writing their own Characters a page. We would prefer character portraits to be of a traditional fantasy-esque nature suitable for this kind of game. There are plenty of resources available online to help you find your character's portrait. We will also allow pictures of the player dressed in the character's costume. It is also worth noting that the table of contents will be automatically added by the wiki if you exceed a certain number of headers within your page.

Early Life

In this section one writes as much or as little about their character's early life as they wish. Remember that none of the information put on the wiki for player characters is to be treated as common information, so this purely serves as a deposit for one's back story. For those who want to keep their character's backstory to themselves, phrases such as 'no records appear of Character' or 'where Character came from originally is not strictly known', but by all means put some speculation up there ('they have a notable accent' or 'their skin shows signs of being exposed to severe weather conditions').

Present Day

In this section one writes about their character's experiences. What motivated them? What have their experiences been? Who do they consider their friends? Have they been affected by the death of anyone in particular? This also becomes a 'what are they up to now' section and can include what they are doing today, any professions or hobbies they have, and where they can most often be found.

The Coding

Below is a version of the page without Wiki formatting, so you can see the coding that is used throughout. Notice how character pages do not open with the character name actually in the page - the wiki will put that in bold at the top of the page for you.
