Hi there folks.... Since the most important thing seems to be that we have a good way to categorize and sort characters, this is draft of the traits each uploaded character should be given. The first 2 are required, the rest are not (for uploading) but will be added or edited later by me.

Thought: I'd rather allow anonymous people to upload characters without an account (I can count on anti-spam techniques to stop most nonsense) as this will encourage greater participation.

Please review the following questions (for each uploaded character) and let me know if I have missed anything super important. Please note that I can't include every possible genre or scenario.... a general category that helps the reader discern what is going on is all I'm hoping for. Ultimately, characters would be search-able by any of the following traits.

Text Version: .txt, .pdf (required)
Character Sheet: .pdf (optional)
GCA4 File: .gca4 (optional)

Genres: (pick one or many) (required)
Fantasy
Space
Ancient
Swashbuckling
Modern
Supers
Cyberpunk
Horror
WWII
Dungeon Fantasy
Traveller
Transhuman Space
Other

(this stuff below is not required to upload a character, but can be added later by an editor if it is left blank)

Most Appropriate for the following TL: (pick one)
0 - 12+

Can this character be converted to another TL, with a few minor changes?
yes/no

Character Role: (pick one)
Hero
