Edensphere is now officially CLOSED.

This page is being kept up for moderation records; any applications that are sent in will neither be accepted nor processed.

※ Applications
※ Brief Reminders
Before applying...
  • Read the Rules, About Applying and Game Intro FAQs.
  • Check the taken and reserved lists for character availability.
  • Players may only apply for ONE character at a time.
  • From June 28, 2008, and onward, Edensphere only accepts email applications.
Completing and sending your application...
  • Please copy and completely fill out the form below as a plain-text email including HTML tags.
    Details regarding the application's individual sections are outlined below in Content Guidelines.
  • All, if not most, application writing should be your own; please don't paste in references from outside sources.

  • Double check your spelling, grammar, capitalization, and formatting.
    • Moderation knows there are players who don't speak English as a first language and will make allowances for that, but we ask that the application be clear and readable as possible.

  • Indicate 'Edensphere Application' in the subject and send to edensphere@gmail.com.

  • Expect a confirmation email that your application has been received.
    • Contact moderation in the rare event that you haven't received a confirmation email within a week of sending your application; maybe yours did not reach the appropriate filter.
    • When moderation receives the application, it doesn't mean that it can or will immediately be processed.

  • If/when moderation requests clarification or elaboration, it does NOT mean we're rejecting your application! It just means we need more information to understand where your character is coming from.
※ Content Guidelines
This is the rubric that the moderation teams uses when looking over applications. Hopefully this will take care of a lot of questions in advance and help applicants know exactly what we're looking for in each section of the application.

NAME: Whatever you'd like us to call you; doesn't have to be your real name.

LJ: It's recommended that players reserve with personal/player LJs so that we can more easily identify their applications.

AGE: Beyond marking minors in the taken characters and contact list pages, moderation keeps this confidential.

CONTACT: Provide at least ONE METHOD of contact for notifications and potential plotting/interaction.

LOCATION/TIME ZONE: For a general idea of when you might be available for contact.

CURRENT CHARACTERS: If you're an existing player, moderation takes your current activity levels into consideration.

CHARACTER NAME: Who you're applying for.

SERIES: Where the character is from.
  • If the series has divergent storylines, such as Fullmetal Alchemist or Kuroshitsuji, please specify which source material you are taking the character from.

RESERVED: Indicate whether or not you reserved the character. Y/N

WISHLIST: Indicate whether someone else has requested this character via wishlist. Y/N

PERSONALITY: An idea of what your character is like, preferably something more specific than a one-line overview. Edensphere is a memory-loss game, and personality is one thing characters mostly retain, so we recommend you flesh it out.

TIMELINE: Describe what point in the story your character is taken from; please cite the episode or chapter if/when possible.

BACKGROUND: Typically the longest section, this is an overview of the character's canon history. Lengthy play-by-play walkthroughs are discouraged; focus on the character's story and elaborate on life-changing or important events and highlights. Because moderation is not familiar with all fandoms, we appreciate explanations of canon-specific terms.
  • We emphasize that if the character's history can be summarized in a few vague sentences/paragraphs or requires major headcanon/fanon fill-in, s/he might not be substantial enough for a first-time applicant. Current players who find this problem are encouraged to use the AU special application.

ABILITIES: List and describe the character's abilities to the best of your knowledge. What is your character capable of? Does your character have static abilities, immediately available or ready-to-go with a memory jog? Or unlockable abilities dependent on specific items/weaponry and only executable after seriously training or relearning? Do these abilities affect many or few? Are there world-breaking consequences to any of their powers? Be prepared to cite instances when the character demonstrates obscure abilities.

EDENSPHERE NAME: What the character will be called in Edensphere.
  • Moderation discourages using parts of a character's real name or actual identity, even if it's a name s/he hasn't used since once-upon-a-time. Also, please avoid situations involving the guide/greeter naming your character.

BIRTHDAY LOG: Would you like to participate in a birthday log? Please include our key phrase from the Game Intro FAQ before your Y/N reply.

DREAM: Describe the dream your character has upon arrival; this counts as an RP sample of how you'd play your character, 3rd person POV.

JOURNAL SAMPLE: This is a general idea of what your character's first journal entry would be like assuming s/he had a birthday log and is settling in temporary housing. It should be consistent with your character's personality.

ASPIRATIONS: What are you looking forward to? Is there anything you'd like to see happen to/with your character in Edensphere? Moderation would like to know in hopes of helping you reach those goals.
