For everyone, both you who're already here and for those of you who are completely new to the board, please keep in mind some important things when making an OC;
- Bows aren't all that common
- Not everyone can have all the army/survival/combat/hunting training in the world
- Can wield weapons like the devil isn't either common
From now on we are going to be a little harder with characters that obviously have some of these traits in their apps. We understand, it's cool to be badass and surviving but realistically speaking, not a whole lot of people know all of these things. Think smaller and think creatively. Aunt Betsy is a top chef and even if that doesn't give her any training it still means that she could have her hands on some decent blades and possibly could use them. Basically we think that the people with perhaps less chances are the more awesome ones. Beating the odds with frying pans is more realistic and down to earth basic survival.
We want all of you to think about the small details that knits your character together. Here on IS it's about character development and the psychology of being put into the zombie apocalypse. Let's face it, we all need a couple of badasses for sure, but true character growth lies within being flawed.
