Reading the articles in order from the top of this page to the bottom is a good way to walk yourself through the process of creating a character for PMM!


Application

Main article: Application

This page is a good place to start, even if you're not ready to write a full application yet. The questions throughout the application are what you want to start figuring out for your character. Not only their history but how it shaped how they see the world, how they interact with others, etc. The tips for each section on the application may also be helpful and thought provoking. There is also an example application written by Gab you can use for reference.

Rules

Main article: Rules

The rules of the MUSH and surrounding community itself. Note that these are the MINIMUM guidelines, and players are generally expected to behave much better.

Restricted Species List

Main article: Restricted Species

You can check this list to see if your character's species is restricted on the MUSH or not. Some of the species are restricted to only be Second Generation or Freebirths but a lot of others are fully restricted and can't be applied for on the MUSH at the time. To save time for everyone involved it is probably the best idea to not worry about species you can't apply for.

Timeline

Main article: Mostly Complete Timeline

A huge help in creating and expanding the history of your character is to look over the official timeline. This timeline consists of the largest events in pokemorph history rather than the small day-to-day life, but it gives you a chronological view of the world of PMM.

Pokemorph History

Main article: Pokemorph History

This page expands upon some of the events in the timeline and gives you more of a quick lesson on why and how pokemorphs were created, treated, and came to live on Pokemorph Island. It also includes an explaination of the different generations pokemorphs can fall under.

Pokemorph Island

Main article: Pokemorph Island

Pokemorph Island is where the MUSH takes place and where all of the pokemorphs have taken up residence. Knowing the layout of the city and surrounding area of Pokemorph Island is useful for writing into an application.

Life as a Pokemorph

Main article: Elemental Types

Life differs from pokemorph to pokemorph, but one thing they all share is their elemental types. Reading over your character's elemental type can help you understand what living day in and day out with their element is like. The page gives clear advantages and disadvantages of each type.

Pokemorph Society

Main article: Pokemorph Society

Pokemorph society is similar to human society but differs in many ways. This page explains the differences and how pokemorphs live their daily lives including information about how relationships are handled, what type of technology exists on Pokemorph Island, and many other things.

Factions

Main article: Factions

The various factions operating on Pokemorph Island (the Pokemorph Intelligence Agency, Team Rocket, the Seafangs and the Friends of Nature) all maintain different goals. It is a good idea to look into each of these groups and decide how your character would react to them and if they have ever had any history with them.

MUSH Etiquette

Main article: MUSH Etiquette

Last but certainly not least, if you're not familiar with online roleplaying this is a guide to introduce some terms and concepts such as retcons and consent rules. MUSHes are plenty old too, and lack some features of newer chats and forums, so there are some things MUSH-specific in here.
