Submitting A Bio Character Name Will Go Here [Jun. 24th, 2004|09:18 pm]
Marauders Uncut Biographies

[mood |curiouscurious]

You've got the bio set up below, now I'm going to go over the format I want you to submit with.

Introduction: This is for you, as yourself. This means your name (whether real or online persona, doesn't matter), a general background on you... who you are, where you live, what you like, student or worker... you can be as vague or as detailed as you feel comfortable with, but just stick with the truth. Nothing I despise more than people who lie online, cause you always get caught doing so. You can basically talk about whatever you like.

RP Experience: What have you done before? Characters you played. where you did this, whatever you like. It gives us an idea on the background of our fellow roleplayers. If we don't know you and your previous rp experience, the more detailed the better.

Your bio will be within a LJ cut. This is done by using < lj-cut text="Character Name" >, inserting the Bio as outlined below, follwed by < /lj-cut > (take away the spaces to make this work right)

Additional Comments: Whatever else you wish to say to us. Links to writing/art samples is great, helps us get to know you better and faster, as well as gives us an example of how you would rp, if we aren't familiar with your style already. You could also do a sample post.

Welcome To Uncut Bios [Jun. 24th, 2004|07:52 pm]
Marauders Uncut Biographies

[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

Welcome to the Uncut biography journal. However you got here, I'll introduce again what we're about. We're a Harry Potter RPG based in the years of the Marauders. This is the sister community to marauders_uncut. The purpose of us here is to organize biographies, and screen potential new role-players.

Uncut was most recently at the Silver-Blaze Forums, but I've decided to move it over to LJ for ease of the users, and so it will hopefully be less confusing. We'll see how it works out.

My next post will have helpful guidelines on how to create a good character bio.

A quick note on canon characters... Some are taken, some are not. The ones that are are held by people who have proven they are good in their roles. They have become adapted to the character, and play it to a satisfactory level. If you wish to take a canon character (which obviously hasn't been claimed), please ensure you can play that character well.

Taken Canon Characters are:
Sirius Black (played by myself)
James Potter
Remus Lupin
Lily Evans
Severus Snape

There may or may not be more... depending on who rejoins this RPG.

A list of alternative canon characters are as follows, from the list by April.
Peter Pettigrew (yes, he's a rat, but someone's got to take him. Think of it this way: you'll definetely post a lot.)
Rudolphus Lestrange
Narcissa Black
Avery/Nott/other misc. future DE's
Andromeda Black
Frank Longbottom
Alice (his future wife)
Regulus Black
Ted Tonks
Bartemius Crouch Jr.
Rita Skeeter
Gilderoy Lockhart
Marlene McKinnnon
Kingsley Shacklebolt
Emmeline Vance
Sturgis Podmore
Hestia Jones
Edgar Bones
Caradoc Dearborn
Elphias Doge
Gideon Prewett
Fabian Prewett
Dorcas Meadows
Benjy Fenwick
Antonin Dolohov
Augutus Rookwood
