► Welcome to Tibumeru ! To join, we require that you follow our steps ! All steps can be found on the front page. If you have any questions, please ask or check our F.A.Q !
► A Quick Summary:: Tibumeru are unable to feel pain, bleed purple and are extremely hard to kill. At lower levels, Tibumeru are more animal-like than they are human, and may not understand the most basic of human skills such as reading even singing a song. They live in a pretty post apocalyptic world. Girls are just as strong as boys, if not stronger. Keep it simple ! Our rules all come down to one thing:: Respect others !
► It looks long, but it really isn't ! Everything is different subject clearly explained due to previously asked questions. Take it step by step !
►At Lv.50+, you can change the colors of your application and you even get a bigger ref ! Here's the recent Leader apps::
► Start by asking yourself a few questions.► If I was reading my application as if it was someone else's, what is the first impression I would get ?► There are things we really really do not want to see in our group. You can find out what those are by clicking here. We're sorry, but we took a mass vote, and many people did not like these characters.
► Can my character start an RP without needing to be approached ? Can it get over its problems enough to say hello ?
► Will others find my characters unpleasant ? (Having no friends sucks. Be careful.)
► Can I draw my character's design ? Does it have specific patterns ? Complicated characters scare others from drawing them, && take away time.
► How does my character eat ? Does it have the will to kill for its food ? Can it fight ?
► There are several different kinds of application, but as a new member, you only have to worry about one, the main character application. I'll explain the other applications later. You can get the .PSD file by downloading it here. There are all the applications on it, you only use the blue application, the others will have what they're for on top of it.
► Note:: The Human EVENT application was for an event, it is not to create human OCs. We are not accepting human characters at the moment. Please, do not use the other applications. You may make your application prettier, but it must stay blue !
► Fill this out entirely before joining. Here, you will have your character. Draw it in. In the case that you are a traditional artist, just copy-paste your application on. If you cannot draw, you may commission someone to draw your character, that you made. Someone else may not design your character for you unless they have official permission. To see who is permitted to sell "adopts" or "character designs", check this blog entry. If you use someone else's artwork, notify them that you are going to use it. They must be 100% your character.
► Above, you see the team logos. As a newbie, you start off as a Neu-recruit. Simply cut out the logo and paste it into your applications, redraw, trace it, whatever ! If you downloaded the .PSD application, the logos are already on it.
► You cannot pick your own team right away, and we will force you to change it if you try. Once again, the teams blog entry is one of the ones you will read into later.
► Finally ! After you have drawn out your visual application, you must put this in the description of your application ! I'll have a version up without all the words, so be patient ! All of these will be explained here, please read them carefully ! Sorry for the length, we've been bombed with questions.
★ Name:: In the case that you pick a name that is taken, we'll ask you to nickname your character. We're okay if you have same names, BUT, you may not use the names taken by the Admins (Ray, Janik, Lituca).
★ Gender:: We allow genderless, transgender, and the normal male/females ! If your character is genderless, state what gender they look like the most, maybe. Like, female dominant or male dominant to give others an idea for drawing their body type, and describing as he/she. If you refer to your character as a "xe" (genderless neutral), please make sure you include that so people understand what that is.
★ Appears:: Tibumeru are nearly ageless, so we have what age they appear to be to others. Tibumeru do not age more than 25 years old, and that's at their oldest. The youngest is generally 12 years old. We do not allow members to make characters under the age of 12, and we are against sexually attractive children (Shotas, Lollis, etc). If you simply cannot draw older characters, make their appears age at least 16 anyway, so others know. If your character is under 17 years old, they are not allowed to wear revealing clothing regularly, and are not allowed in explicit drawings.
FAQ #248: Are there restrictions on art using children or teenagers (fictional or otherwise)?
★ Actual Age:: Same as before, the restrictions of young characters also applies here. We understand that children get into similar things that adults do, that doesn't mean we support it. Members are not allowed to have characters younger than 12, and older than 80. Please do not pick an extremely old character if you do not understand the group. Being old does not give you any perks besides story line.
★ Height:: How tall are they ? This is just for visual purposes only. Try to keep them at least 4'9'', the maximum being around 6'5''.
★ Relationship Status:: You can say if your character is single or taken. If you don't want others to know or really don't want people coming after you for ships, put unavailable. Please keep in mind, this is not a group for ships. If we find your application covered in "good at the sex" or even "great kisser", we will deny you, sorry ! Characters obviously made only to try to get smut RPs are not welcome. Added due to popular demand.
★ Preference:: Keep it simple. Avoid sexualities that most wouldn't know. LIKES GIRLS, LIKES BOYS, LIKES WHATEVER is fine. Again, you can put Undisclosed or unavailable. Added due to popular demand.
★ Personality:: Please keep in mind, that insane is not a personality. It is a mental disorder for the most part, and we do not allow mental disorders ! If you wish to describe a character who by your standards is insane, try "vicious, cruel, uncaring, quick to attack".
★ Hobbies:: Straight to the point. Just remember, Tibumeru are really really dumb. Keep it simple. At best case, starting out, your Tibumeru might know how to paint a little bit or collects shiny things.
★ Skills:: At level 100, you may master a skill. You must ask admins about them first. But until then, you cannot be a master of any skills. Maybe your Tibumeru can sing a little bit, or poke at some guitar strings. They cannot seriously do either of those at a professional level until they hit level 100. Remember this ! To see what levels you can learn new skills, reading && writing included, check this out. Remember Tibumeru are like animals at lower levels.
★ History:: Keep it short and sweet. You character cannot have effected the Tibumeru world in anyway, unless you are an admin or someone who knows what they're doing, and have actually participated in events. You can update this later. We'll accept you even if your history is "spent most of life in cave". We'd sooner accept that over "Learned to heal others after years of college", "family died in fire". Humans do not regularly hunt Tibumeru, they do not eat Tibumeru. Unless you were a threat to them, they would not go after you. Please, do not use rape sob stories. We will deny you. We do not want anything involving rape in our group. If you update your application, please notify us !
★ Bad Habits, or Specific Traits:: Things that make your character, your character. Maybe they enjoy picking scabs or can't stop twitching. Just little things. Maybe they curse constantly, or like to touch everything.
★ Legend:: How do they believe they were created ? Science ? Fish evolving ? Windex to the face ? Anything is fine. Even if they don't believe anything. Legend belief is a religion for some characters, who work the way they do because they believe in a god or science. Real religions do not apply to Tibumeru. They are fish, and the god they have is the Lochness monster at best.
★ Theme Songs:: Three at most. You can pick these later, you can change these later. Music often plays in inspiring a character !
★ Extra:: Whatever you wanna add.
► As you take part in the group, you will gain EXP for participating, drawing, writing, whatever ! (Don't worry about EXP, Fancy-Bee does all that for you. Just make sure you're keeping up with the blogs. We update them when EXP has been added.) And your character will grow. As your character levels up, you gain 1★. You start off with 20s (25s for admins) to put as you wish, max being 8s on one stat at level one.
► As you level up, you must keep stats more or less equal. You cannot have 1★ DEFENCE, and 25★ ATTACK. You HAVE to balance them.▼ An example of Balanced High level Stats.▼HP:: 10★
ATTACK:: 12★ [Strongest Stat]
DEFENCE:: 8★ [Weakest Stat]
★ After you hit this, you wonder what to do next ? It's simple. You start adding again until you hit 18/20/22 on all stats, like::
ATTACK:: 22★ [Strongest Stat]
DEFENCE:: 18★ [Weakest Stat]
★ Then again, you go until you hit 28/30/32, then 38/40/42, and so on. Easy enough ? You just have to keep it balanced !!
► Lv. X (You start off as Level 1, max level is 200 for regular members, 225 for admins.)
► HP ;; ( 1★ = 10HP )
► ATTACK ;; ( 1★ = 1DAMAGE. This doesn't mean that your character is super strong. It's more of they KNOW HOW to attack. Characters who can pick up cars are not welcome here. Unless you have high att, your character will not know to attack the neck.)
► DEFENSE ;; ( 2★ = 1DEFENSE. 1 DEFENSE takes off 1 DAMAGE made. )
► SPEED ;; ( 1★ = 1 SPEED. Whoever has the most speed gets to attack first every time and helps when it comes to dodging attack. If the other is reallyreally slow, you may get another attack in on your turn.)
► INTELLIGENCE ;; ( 1★ = 1 INTELLIGENCE. Intelligence is your characters ability to use your surroundings to your advantage and set working traps. Not to be mistaken with their intellect or maturity, which shouldn't be above that of a pre-teen. )
► WEAKEST STAT ;; -- (Weakest Stat will get -2★ in the end)
► STRONGEST STAT ;; -- (Strongest Stat will get +2★ in the end)
► We're not that picky about stats. If you're a bit off, we'll just correct you, so don't worry ! We'll accept you anyway. These were put into play to make sure no one is able to power play.
►Don't worry about this, Fancy-Bee does all this for you. You can use it as a cheat sheet, though.▼ EXP Rewards Cheat Sheet ▼★ You need 100% EXP to level up, 1 time.
