|Q: Can I hold a character?|
A: Yes you can. You can hold a character or a Played By for 7 days.
Q: Is this game set in real time?
A: No. It is every two real life weeks for one game week. The mods will post reminders in the OOC community when the change in the week is coming up.
Q: I need a code to make a journal! Where can I get one?
A: If you already have a journal on Insane Journal you can go to Code Share and make a post asking to see if others will share an extra code or two. If you are new to Insane Journal and can't find a code please make a note in your application. The mods have a few codes that they can use and are willing to give them out to anyone that is accepted into the game. We will email you the code after we have accepted you!
Q: Are original characters accepted?
A: No, they are not. We only accept canon characters.
Q: Would it be all right to re-use a journal which has absolutely nothing to do with the character's name? Or is it better to just find a new code?
A: Yes, it is ok to reuse a journal. But we can also get you a code once you are accepted if you want to make a new journal.
Q: Is there a limit on which characters and fandoms may be applied for?
A: Nope! No limit. Any fandoms are open. Just check the Character List and Hold pages to make sure the character you want to play hasn't been taken.
Q: When does the game start and what year is it?
A: The planned date to start is May 10th. As there is no such thing as a calendar on the island we will just be going by weeks. (ie. Week 1, Week 2, Week 3)
Q: Do we need a Played By? Can we use just use cartoon or anime icons instead?
A: No, you do not need a Played By but the mods encourage each character to have one. You can use icons of the character from a cartoon, game, or anime. You can even use both: Played By and anime icons.
Q: If my character is sick or injured when the goddess pulls them out of their timeline are they healed or are they still sick or injured?
A: That is up to you as the player. You can have the goddess heal them when they are placed on the island or you can have the goddess leave them as they are.
Q: Does my character have to be from the time of the book/movie/show they're from or can it be from before or after that time? (ie. Bellatrix lestrange: can I make her from her time at school or does it have to be during the book?)
A: You can have the character pulled at any point in their life. I'll use your example: Bellatrix can be pulled during her time at Hogwarts, after her time at Hogwarts, during the Harry Potter books, after the books, whenever.
Q: Where does my character start on the island? Anywhere?
A: No. The goddess will place all the characters within the city that has no name. They will wake up from a sleep wherever you put them (ie. floor, bed, roof) with a hologram computer cuff on their wrist.
Q: What is this hologram computer cuff that my character wakes up with?
A: It looks like a normal silver wrist cuff but once you touch it a hologram screen and keyboard appears. It can do a lot of many different things so have fun with it. It is removable for those characters that don't like technology.
Q: My character is able to do magic. Will they still be able to do magic on the island?
A: Yes but it won't be as powerful and it won't always work how they want it work. Plus the goddess has put a block on any kind of magic that will be life threatening damage. (ie. The Killing Curse: Avada Kedavra)
Q: What happens when a character is dropped? Can I pick them back up? Do I have to deal with back story?
A: You can picked up any character that isn't already taken. Even one that has been dropped recently and you won't have to deal with remembering any back story. How this works is the goddess would just pick the character from a different point in their timeline. So it would be the same character just different spot in their life they were taken from. The only thing is your character will have to deal with other characters already knowing them and thinking they are friends/lovers but that is part of the fun.
