Before your application can be processed, you MUST request to join the game, messenger and OOC communities. Applications that are not accompanied by these community requests may be delayed.

Do NOT submit your application as a Google document or attached file. The application will be denied, and we will ask you to re-apply.

Update your pup's userinfo page with the following information: Name, canon, point in their canon at which they enter Haurvatat, physical description, a disclaimer. Here is a good example of what we are looking for. (You can copy & paste this info from your application if you wish.) This is so people who are not familiar with your pup or the canon can get a basic feel for who they are. Your application will not be approved unless you have this information on your pup's profile.

Once you have been accepted to the game, you MUST add your contact info Here. Failure to do this will result in removal from the game.

Once approved, Go here and reply with a room number for your pup (or a request for a room mate). Room numbers are RANDOM. It doesn't matter what room you choose, as long as it isn't taken.

2. Appearance (eg. Changing pbs)
3. Abilities (eg. Becoming a vampire, expansion of magical/mutant abilities not on your original app)
4. Alignment (eg. they were neutral good when you apped them, you've canon updated and now they're.. the Master)

An update to the original pup application will need to be completed and approved prior to making changes/updating:

1. Why do you want to update/modify your pup? (At least 150 words)
2. How does the canon update/plot change/effect the powers/abilities of your pup?
3. Why do you feel a canon update will benefit how you are currently playing your pup? (At least 150 words)
