Character Submission Questionnaire

Here is the stat block you can use to copy and paste if you wish to enter your character in the ideal format.

Domains (if cleric):
Biography and Description:



Character Name:

-What is your character's name?

-First or last names as well as pseudonyms in any combination are suitable.

-This must be the same name as you use when creating your character in-game.

Character Age:

-How old is your character at creation?

-For the current year please look at the top of the page, just beneath the Layonara logo.

-Please refer to the allowable starting ages here.

Character Class:

-What is your characters class?

-If multi-classing, please indicate the desired split between the classes. Make certain there is a minimum of five (5) levels in each class before level twenty (20).

-First time players are allowed the following classes: Barbarian, Bard, Fighter, Monk, Rogue, Ranger, Sorcerer and Wizard.

Character Race:

-What is your character's race?

-Half-races must be born on or before the year 1421.

-Exotic race (Goblins, Orcs, Wemics, Brownies, Dark Elves, Sea Elves) submissions are restricted by limited time availability for applications.

-First time players can play the following races: Elf, Dwarf, Halfling, Human and Gnome.

Character Sub-Race:

-If submitting a subrace, please ensure the biography fits the given lore for the race.

-Wemic, Brownie, Ghostwise Halflings, Sea Elf, Dark Elf or Goblin submissions will require substantial support as their basic circumstances of life differ greatly from the core races.

-First time players are not allowed a subrace at this time.

Character Gender:

-Does your character present as male or female?

Character Alignment:

-What is your character's alignment?

-First time players are allowed the following alignments: CG, NG, LG, LN and TN.

Deity Association:

-Does your character favor one god over all the others?

-A character is not required to associate with one particular deity. In fact most people on Layonara pay homage to multiple gods, depending on the situation.

-There is ample evidence for the existence of gods so although atheism is virtually impossible, apathy to the gods is possible.

Cleric Domain:

-If submitting a cleric, please note the Deity Domains you will select upon character creation.

-Please make certain you read over your chosen deity carefully as domains are restricted and in some cases have special rules.

-This section isn't something you need to worry about as a first time player as clerics are considered heavy lore classes.

Character Birthplace:

-If appropriate, indicate where was your character born?

-If the character does not know, this is fine to skip or hint at as necessary.

-Please note that all submissions must originate on Layonara and not from other worlds, Pits or planes.

-Please refer to the map for ideas, but a general indication is also fine. Feel free to venture through our (ever expanding) write ups on locations for more information.

Character Biography:

-This can take any form that you wish, and can include as much or as little detail as you desire. The primary purpose of the biography is to convey a sense of the character as well as the past events that affect their current situation.

-This can include information about the character's parents and siblings, a brief history of any training they received, a chronicle of the character's travels, even traumas or triumphs that helped make the character in to the person they are, physically, mentally and emotionally.

-A novel is not necessary, but the biography should give an idea of how the character ended up as the rare person who becomes an adventurer.

-There are a few things we do not allow for lore reasons. Characters may not:

  • have direct ties to gods, dragons or royalty of any kingdom.
  • have direct contact between themselves and a deity (this includes visions or dreams provided by a deity, a deity walking the lands and visiting the player or their ancestors, physical markings by a deity or an agent, or gifts provided by a deity, or anything of this nature). A character is welcome to believe what they like as long as the player can acknowledge the actuality of the circumstances.
  • have apparent powers beyond that of a level one (1) character. This can be rather tricky with characters who are intended to have a level split but try to keep in mind power level when addressing level splits.
Extra Credit:

-An optional section can include anything else you want to describe about the character. (e.g. Height, Weight, etc..)
-Use this section to describe any unique or particular physical traits of your character.
-This can include the way they walk or talk, any scars or deformities, their hair and eye color, tattoos, or any objects that they obviously carry.
-This section should also reflect the character's physical attributes (strength, dexterity, constitution and charisma to some extent), as well as the choice of race.
-What is you character's personality?
-Are they friendly, private, quick of temper, thoughtful, etc...
-This section can help explain a character's alignment and mental attributes (intelligence, wisdom and charisma to some extent).
-It should also reflect the choice of race for the character.

Final Notes:

  • If a character starts out with a story where by they might have received special treatment (extra money, influence from wealthy family lines etc) even if the story removes this, we need an OOC statement at the bottom of your application that states you acknowledge the character will receive no extra benefits.
  • Please make sure your alignment statements are completed if necessary.
  • Please make sure, for druids, clerics, paladins and certain PrCs, your commitment statements are completed.
  • If the character suffers from a mental condition such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder (in description as these titles will not apply across the lore line) we have special considerations that the character approver will address with you.
