Fera Applications

Quick Ref

  • Developing your Concept: Start out by logging in and typing "+concept shifter=<concept" and give me at least a few sentences about what you intend to play.
  • Sending your Application: When your concept has been reviewed and approved, prepare and email your application (form below) to
  • Statting Your Character: Use 20th Anniversary Changing Breeds mechanics to stat your character

Banned Concepts

No Shifters will come in with Sorceror abilities. You can learn Sorcery ICly from PCs.
Professionals that are Shifters. You are a bottle of rage, it doesn't work.
Unknowing or confused Shifters. You know what you are and the usual rules and culture.
Camp Members - this is a land of outcasts, no camps.
Possessors of klaives and similar fetishes.
Rank 4 or 5. You can only come in at Rank 1, 2 or 3.
Although several Fera breeds do tend to be loners, I will expect and encourage you to make your character compatible with the multiplayer dynamic of a MUSH (that is to say, isolationist/hermit characters and so on would not be reasonable and I will ask you to alter a loner-based concept).


We do not accept the following:

  • Backgrounds: Not on the Shifter section of the approved Backgrounds list found here.
  • Merits: Animal Magnetism, Bad Taste, Camp Goodwill, Code of Honor, Fair Glabro, Family Support, Favor, Metamorph, Mixed-Morph, Natural Channel, Notable Heritage, Noted Messenger, Reputation, Silver Tolerance, Spirit Magnet, or Supernatural Companion
  • Flaws: Anosmia, Camp Enmity, Compulsion, Dark Fate, Dark Secret, Double Jeopardy, Driving Goal, Insane Ancestor, Intolerance, Naive, Nightmares, Overconfident, Persistent Parents, Phobia, Short, Shy, Slip Sideways, Strict Carnivore, or Twisted Upbringing
  • Duplications I try to keep merits, flaws and character types 'special'. So some merits and flaws, skill sets, will be denied as there is already someone in the sphere with them.
  • 4s and 5s: I allow one four in an ability, no 5's at chargen.
  • Kinain: Per Loki, no Kinain Shifters

Cross-Sphere Applications

If you wish to go cross-sphere then you must also forward your application to the appropriate staffer of that sphere. In this case, your approval may take longer as it will need to be reviewed by additional staff, who may deny or require changes to your application (in part or as a whole) at their discretion.


Please fill out the application and email it to If you wish to submit a backstory in addition to the application, then you may do so at your choice, but the application itself is strictly required for approval. Please keep all emails in the text based format as some things are much easier when we can cut and paste from the email. Please follow the format here on the wiki beginning with Basics. Thanks!

Attributes, Abilities, Backgrounds

Using 20th anniversary editions, please set your character's stats and submit them in the following format:

- Strength 2
- Dexterity 2
- Stamina 2
- Willpower 6
- Rage 3
- Gnosis 3
- Merits Concentration <1>|Acute Hearing <1>
- Flaws Bad Sight <-3>|Deformity <-3>

Please remember: all gifts and rites must come from WW20 books.

- gifts Gift1 <1>|Gift2 <1>\Gift3 <1>
- rites Rite1 <1>|...

And so on.

That is to say, for each stat that has a numerical value, put each stat on one line. Type a dash (-), a space, the stat name, then the numerical value of the stat. This formatting requirement is so that staff can more quickly manually set your character.

Fetishes And Talens

While you will have explained your Fetish/Talen previously in the written portion, please include an explicit book and page reference for the items you wish to have out of character generation.
