In addition to the writing sample, please tell us a little bit about how you see the character, the kinds of stories you'd be interested in doing, etc.
Basic game guidelines below:
1. Canon is a guide, not a straitjacket. There are big canon issues and little canon issues. Magnus and his family are ruling from Genosha. Shaw is running SHIELD. Those are all good examples of big canon issues that don't change. Smaller issues that are subject to change would include things like who a character is dating or where they are living at a particular time - as long as we have internal story logic, things are fine.
An encyclopedic knowledge of House of Magnus canon is not a requirement. However, you will be expected to learn or know canon pertaining to your character: for example, if you are playing a member of the Red Guard, you should know who the other members are, where the headquarters is, and have a general idea of who is capable of doing what. If you need help, have a question, or need to get familiar with the HoM setting, please feel free to ask in the ooc community. Other players are always willing to help.
2. Play nice with others. This is one of the most important things. Plots don’t need to be approved by the mods, but we do want players to check with other players for stuff that involves their characters. If you have problems with another player, please contact one of the mods either personal email or the mod email at email@example.com
3. All IC game posts should be made at house_of_magnus. Questions, thoughts and comments should be made at house_of_m_ooc. We don't have a minimum posting requirement because real life happens. We know this and accept this. However, if you know you’re going to be away for an amount of time, let people know. If something compes up like your computer dies, find some way to let someone know so they can pass it on. Generally people say, "Okay, you can NPC my character, and they're likely to do thus and such in a given situation," or they let a trusted friend play understudy. Whatever works for you. Characters who haven’t posted after two weeks may be NPC’d by people in the ongoing thread.
4. Regarding any likely triggering issues (i.e., stories involving rape, child abuse), check for OOC player comfort level before you launch. If any posts contain any sensitive issues or topics, please put a warning at the beginning of the post and put it behind an LJ Cut.
Regarding character violence, no maiming or killing without the other player's permission.
