Before you apply, make sure you've read the Application Rules.
To submit your species application, fill out the following form using the bbcode template and post it in the Species Forum in the sub-forum called Ready Submissions. Please use our code below, and do NOT alter our template in any way. You must submit finished applications only. No WIP please.
NOTE: If admins ask for edits to your submissions, please notify us by posting in your submission thread that the edits have been made. Otherwise, we won't know that your application is ready for re-review. Telling us in the CBOX is not a reliable way to inform us and is in violation of our CBOX Rules. Additionally, we need to keep ALL correspondence about the submission in your submission thread so that we can track any edits.
Once your species is approved, staff will post in your thread, and move your submission to the forum called Approved.
You may add an image to represent your species. Center it and place it where indicated in the template. Make sure your image is no wider than 400px and please link to the source.
You are able to freely create 2 Species per writer. Writers may create additional species for 25, 75, 150, etc In-Character posts.
This form is for sentient playable species only.
Note: The Site Staff holds the right to request edits of submissions where the species is depicted by images of well-known alien races in popular culture, especially those from Star Wars and Star Trek.
