Welcome to Floating Boats, of FLoB as we so lovingly call it.

You’d likely be here due to a love of writing/RPing, as we are, and we know that you’d be eager to get started. First and foremost, however, you need to create your character.

For those of you who are new to Forumotion or RP sites in general, we’ve put together a guide for you to follow, explaining the application process as well as how to get your character involved in all the different fandoms.

1. Make an Account.
You should have one account per character. The account made should be your character’s first and last name, with a space included. (For example: Violet Lynch)

2. Submit Application.
First, decide on a fandom (or fandoms). Then, find the corresponding template sheet, which can be found here.

All you need to do is copy it and fill it out. We suggest using another place to do it, such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs, as there is no autosave on Forumotion and if you accidentally close or refresh the tab you could lose everything you've typed.

These templates will ask you to write the background of your character specific to the fandom or ‘world’ that you will be writing in. You only need to fill templates for the fandoms you want to RP in; there are no limits to these.

(For example, the ‘Harry Potter’ template will ask things such as your character’s Hogwarts house, wand core, and blood purity (along with general attitudes around the politics in the canon), whereas the ‘Superhero’ template will generally ask things such as your character’s superpower, whether or they’re a hero or a villain, and etc.)

A written background is required for each different fandom. This should encompass your character’s upbringing, family life, and certain life-changing events that have moulded your character to who they are in the present canon. Each written background may differ slightly due to the differences in canon with each different ‘world’.

Submit this to either the 'Complete Profiles' or 'Incomplete Profiles', depending on whether or not you finished the application. (It will only be approved if it's completed, however; the incomplete profile section is a place to store it if you don't have time to finish it and can't save it elsewhere.)

Before posting anything else, you must wait for Admin Approval, which in the form of a reply to your app, saying 'approved'. Face Claims/Power Claims are accepted after your app has been.

Note (2/18/18): The prior Basic Template has been discontinued. Also, if you wish to have your character in more than one fandom, you must complete the Character Template for each fandom. You may simply copy and paste details that apply in multiple fandoms, and adjust other details as needed. This will aid other users in knowing which characters are participating in their fandom and are available for posting with.

3. Claims (optional)
You may claim a face (a celebrity that 'represents' your character's looks), power, ability, and etc, if you wish. Some fandoms require claims, such as the Superhero area. You may make claims at any point, but please note that they will not be approved until your app has been accepted.

You can find the claims center here.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact an Admin.

Happy RPing!
