Character types can be divided into three categories. Feature characters and original characters are grouped together for these purposes.

TYPE I
These are major, plot significant characters, usually tribal leaders. Admin approval is neccessary to play these characters, and you'll need to audition for them. Auditioning is an easy process: you just play a short scene with a wizard or staff member to make sure that your portrayal of the character is consistent with prior play. When they do not have a player, Type I characters are puppeted by admins and can be requested for scenes.

TYPE II
These are characters with a large range of influence on the MUSH, whether it's through age or rank. For feature characters, these are typically ones with significant amounts of screentime. You do not need to audition for feature characters in this category, but simply fill out a short application detailing what direction you want to take the character, and potential plot ideas.

TYPE III
These are the average characters on the MUSH - the weavers, the menders, the hunters, each of which is vital but not neccessarily plot relevant on their own. Feature characters in this category usually have a minimal amount of characterisation, little screentime in the comics, and are treated the same as any original character.



Starting off, there's no way to tell what feature characters people will want to apply for - and which will even get played. The "give us a short blurb of your ideas" thing could probably be skipped for Type II characters and just have them make the application as-per-normal. Have the plot-blurb thing only apply to those who are adopting pre-made characters (or in this case, FCs who have already been played)?
