Sometimes, it can be a little confusing to figure out who belongs where and who is open and who is not. The lists below are subject to expand as the board grows. If you'd like to apply for a god that isn't listed here, do not worry. You can still apply for them and we will just add the pantheon after.
<P>
Those that we have deemed as too powerful to be a first character or just too powerful in general will be deemed as NPCs. Those that wish to apply for an NPC will need to contact a staffer via PM.

<P>
So, we've been open for a few months (yay us!) and we feel it is time to finally open it up so that people can sign up to have their characters in the blank photo space of the banner up top. This will change between everyone's characters. As we are rather small right now, you can sign up with all of your characters currently so long as you provide the high def picture that you'd like used. Below you will find a sign up sheet to enable you to sign your character up for this. If your character is deemed inactive (after an activity check or several attempts to get in touch with you), your character will be removed from the banner. That being said, please see the code below to sign up!
<P> <p>
Example:<br>
Character Name: Nora Kirkwood
Links to Hi-Def Pictures of Your Character: pic 1, pic 2, pic 3
<p><p>
If you have multiple characters, please do that for each character (i.e. shampoo, rinse, repeat). Thank you!

Lore Posting
</div><div style="font-family: advent pro; text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 10px; border-bottom: 1px solid #6C788E; color: #6C788E;">

for all your lore posting needs

</div><div style="height: 1px; border-bottom: 2px solid #6C788E;"></div><div style="font-family: tahoma; color: #6C788E; font-size: 10px; line-height: 90%; text-align: justify; padding: 10px;">

These are just a few things about posting your lore to support your character's background. There are creatures lurking on the board that incredibly unique. It is in this forum that you can post the lore behind the creature that you're playing and add to it as things unfold. Anything you wanted to add in the application, but felt would make it too long can be put here. There are a few guidelines though. There's not much, but please keep these in mind!
<p>
1.) Please be respectful of each other. While we don't feel that this will be a problem, it does bear mentioning. This is a game and meant to be fun. So, please do be respectful. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif
<p>
2.) If someone already has lore posted about the creature that you have, please collaborate with them if you wish to add more. You can contact them via their preferred contact method or even just via PM.
<p>
3.) Members can use the [do html] template at the bottom for uniformity, but you can post lore without it. If you don't post with it (or don't feel comfortable doing so), a staffer will edit your entry and format it with the template we have chosen for uniformity's sake.
<p>
4.) Guidelines are subject to change at the discretion of the PiB staff.
<p>
That's it! Pretty simple, right? Post away, guys and enjoy (and please see below for the [do html] template to post with)!

These FAQs are subject to be added to or changed in some form or fashion at any point. Please check here before you ask a question as it may already have been answered. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif
<p><p>
Q: Can I make a vampire that sparkles in and can withstand sunlight?<br><p>
A: Unfortunately, the only lore that backs that up is a piece of crap whiny novel that was created to have a vampire and a werewolf fight over a hollow character. Please, don't make a Twilight vampire. Please, for the love of everything that is Holy, don't do it. Just don't.
<p><p>
Q: Are arch angels chained to being just males?<br><p>
A: No, much like in the SPN universe, we believe that arch angels would be able to choose their gender for when they appear in the flesh on Earth.
<p><p>
Q: What about gods and goddesses then?<br><p>
A: Well, we'd think the same goes there (except for maybe some of the patriarchal gods like Zeus and Odin). Technically, though, Zeus or Odin likely could temporarily disguise themselves as women if they so chose. Just be careful about things like that, please!
<p><p>
Q: Can we make a whole race of beings that doesn't have lore on it?<br><p>
A: Well, technically, if you can find a way to base them off of something in lore, like maybe an offshoot of a type of creature, then we could certainly see. We tend to take this on an app by app basis. So apply away!
<p><p>
Q: The description says this is a site that is based on lore, legend, myth, and such. What is lore though and what does that mean?
<p>
A: Lore is a body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth. Basically, we want you to apply for your character while keeping in mind those concepts. Your character's species could be a plain ole human or it could be a creature that is based myth or legend or lore. Lore can sometimes be region specific though. So, do your research and have fun with it! So long as you have something to back it up, then you're golden!
<p><p>
Q: Can't I just take some sort of lore from a television show?
<p>
A: Depends on the show. Shows like Supernatural base their show lore on actual real world lore in most cases. However, they can have differences based on what they can show on television. Mostly, if it's based on supernatural, it's likely cool to bring over, but make sure you have real life lore to back it up too.
<p>
Now shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer are somewhat like Supernatural in that most of their lore is based on actual lore, but they made up things like vampires always having a demonic face when they go for the blood or 'vamp out'. And there really isn't any actual story about vampire slayers outside of the show. That part was from the brilliant mind of Joss Whedon.
<p><p>
Q: Wait, I'm confused. So does that mean I can use lore from shows?
<p>
A: No, that just was our round about way of explaining how shows can sometimes use lore for entertainment purposes. The meat of the matter is, we are not a multi-genre verse. So, while we don't mind you taking some aspects from shows, you can't just throw Dean and Sam Winchester or Buffy Summers into the mix here at PiB and be like 'done.' We will deny your app if you do that. However, if you want to do something similar, be our guests. Just make it your own and try to make it plausible in this storyverse. That means, don't copy things word for word from the show's story line. We will find out and then you'll get in trouble. If you need help with something like this, hit us up in the c-box. We love to throw ideas around so that you can do something similar, but with your own spin on things!
<p><p>
Q: Is there a place where I can put lore to back up my character's background so that if people want to collaborate and possibly have their character come from the same place, we can all be on the same page?
<p>
A: Yes, there is. As soon as your character has been accepted, you can copy and paste the lore from the app and even add to it as it grows and expands with play on PiB.
<p><p>
Q: Can I have my character be experimented on by the government?
<p>
A: We're glad you asked that! We have a few subplots on here that you may want to check out! There's one that involves hunters selling supernatural creatures to pharmaceutical giants (dead or alive) to harvest or experiment on. We're also coming out with a government project subplot too (thank you Gadget) that will be available for people to have had their characters take part in.
<p><p>
Q: Wait, what are subplots?
<p>
A: Subplots are how we track what's already in play on PiB that people can take part in. This way, people can collaborate amongst themselves in a plot that's already in play. They also can inspire board wide events in the future, based on the popularity of said subplots. As people sign up more and more for particular subplots, that will allow us to know what we can, as a board, build upon and allow us to offer more chapters in said subplots. We will, of course, collaborate with those already involved in those subplots as things progress. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif
