HOW TO JOIN THE ACTION
First of all, you need a character... selecting an existing one should be a piece of cake. Just look up the stats for said character from SEIBERTRON.COM's database or simply in the RPG Profiles threads, if the character is there. We are currently only accepting applications for the small Infiltration teams on Earth. Check the Canon Roster List to see who's available. We may be willing to substitute a character for one on the list, if that character is reasonably well suited to Infiltration, and the change will not alter the balance of power. As the story progresses (and the number of players grows) more characters will become available.
Name: Name of your character.
Allegiance: What group your character belongs to: Autobots or Decepticons.
Function: The function of your character. Warrior, engineer, etc.
Alt. mode: What your character transforms into. Every Transformer needs to have an alternative mode. This is an Earth-based game, so take the opportunity to look up what specific vehicle your character is. Bumblebee is a Volkswagen Bug, not a just a little yellow car. Detail is more interesting.
Weapons: List the weapons your character has.
Special Abilities: List the special abilities your character has (i.e. a cloaking device). If character doesn't have any, leave this part out.
Height: The height of your character both in feet and meters.
Quote: 'Write a motto that tells something of your character's view of life.'

TECH SKILL: 1-9 (10*)
CHARISMA: 1-9 (10*)
RANK: Assigned by RPG moderators.
Profile: Write a profile for your character which tells something of his personality and possible history.
Abilities: Tell others what you character is capable of. List top speed and range without external fuel tanks. Explain the effects of your character's weapons. Remember to be specific, otherwise figuring out what happens in combat scenes is more difficult. Autobot chars should include a brief description if their Holomatter Avatar here, so other players know what you look like.
Weaknesses: Every character has some kind of weakness, write it here.
Sample Post: In here you can let your creative talents come to a boil. You've put all this time into showing us you know your character, now show us what you can do with them. Write a sample post for your character. Have them in a combat situation or a non-combat situation. Just remember that grammar and characterization counts. We prefer that sample posts reflect the game's setting. This is to demonstrate that you read over the background for the game. So be warned that if your sample doesn't fit the game (i.e. samples involving Megatron or Prime being on Earth, or that ignore the Infiltration protocol) you may be asked to write a new one.
-You must post your character's abilities and weaknesses, alongside with their profile. This way, other players know what they are up against and vice versa. Posting the character profile can be delayed if the player wants to keep his newly created character as a mystery for story telling purposes, but even then the strengths and weaknesses of the character must be made visible for others. However players are not allowed to use their OOC (out of character) information of characters against each other in the game unless they have learned that information IC (in character)! The full character profile has to be shown to RPG mods before starting playing regardless of how one wishes to introduce his character.
-Characters are awarded based on merit of the application. This means that sometimes we will be reviewing several applicants for the same character, and that first come does not equal first served. Just do your best, and don't get discouraged if you don't get every character you apply for.
Below is the code that should be used for profile. Just copy and paste and fill in your character details.
