Fera Apps

Fera Player-Characters & Tiers

  • Ananasi PCs will be allowed on a case-by-case basis. A player may pitch their Director with an idea for an Ananasi PC. The Director will only approve ideas that fit in the the rest of the MUSH. Historically, the lone Ananasi hasn’t seemed to gain much traction, in terms of maintaining a player’s interest in the long term.
    • I am almost more interested in seeing one who was trying to blend in with the Leeches of Los Angeles, rather than cooperate with the Gaians, where they’re largely unwelcome.
    • There is a mysterious, organized faction of Ananasi on the grid, though are nearly as likely to be hostile to most PC Ananasi as they are to Gaians. If your desired Ananasi concept somehow lines up perfectly with them, and you seem to be an excellent writer, I might bring you into the storyline from their perspective. No promises.
  • A few Bastet Tribes are more likely to find in Los Angeles than others, such as the Balam, Ceilican, Pumonca and Qualmi. You don’t particularly need my permission to apply for one of these, and I would even be happy to offer a Tier III incentive, depending on the concept.
    • A couple Tribes are not entirely unheard of, such as the Bagheera and Bubasti who each have a vaguely plausible enough reason to find themselves in Los Angeles. The Bagheera owing to the numbers of their South Asian Kinfolk who have found their way to L.A., and Bubasti owing to the secrets and mysteries that the City of Angels offers the shadowcats to explore. I’m not particularly inclined to incentivize them, though.
    • There isn’t as much narrative space at the moment for Khan, Simba or Swara. But I could be potentially persuaded to allow it with a great app, or maybe just a dedicated group of players (like a small group of Simba with a stellar reason to be in L.A.). I’m willing to discuss it.
  • Corax are perfectly welcome. I am open to incentivizing almost all wereraven concepts.
    • I already have a Tier I on the grid (My Fera Producer, David), and wouldn’t mind a few more Tier IIIs or even a Tier II, depending.
  • There isn’t really much of a narrative space in Los Angeles for Gurahl, owing to the city being rather far from any location realistically inhabited by a bear.
    • I had room for one Tier III whose identity and isolation would play into a couple of themes that I felt appropriate for Los Angeles, and that slot has already been filled.
  • Mokole might be allowed in the future. If I can think of a way to integrate them into a Los Angeles-based narrative that makes sense.
    • Then again, they might not be. Don’t hold out for this one.
  • Nagah might be allowed in the future. If I can think of a way to integrate them into a Los Angeles-based narrative that makes sense.
    • It would probably have to be as part of some group app, composed of at least three players who I knew wouldn’t flake out, and weren’t retiring Shifter PCs they already had to play them. And even then, I might not be thrilled. But if such a magical event should transpire, and all three wrote a great app, I would seriously consider it, once we’ve been open for a few months.
  • Nuwisha are perfectly welcome in Los Angeles.
    • I have a slot for a Tier II Nuwisha app, and currently all Nuwisha Apps that pass muster qualify for at least a Tier III.
  • There are a great many Ratkin in Los Angeles, and they are fully available for application.
    • In a nutshell, the main Ratkin narrative dynamic consists of the Courtiers of the Port of Los Angeles Colony, located in San Pedro, waging war against the Port of Long Beach Colony, located in Long Beach, for control of Terminal Island.
    • Ratkin PCs are considered to be Ramblers, who are caught between these opposing Nests, and who best resemble mercenaries, refugees, exiles and all-around troublemakers. Ratkin Ramblers are the only group likely to have Homids among them, or to even spend much time in Homid form, and thus are the only Ratkin likely to interact with other non-Ratkin PCs in a significant fashion. Because of this, all Ratkin PCs are Ramblers.
    • I have a Tier I (Dallas) on the grid, and a Tier II (Lily), who form the core of the Ratkin Rambler’s leadership.
    • I have several Tier II roles available for Homid Ratkin, who have a close association with Bone Gnawers, and who do not belong to any Freak aspect besides Twitcher.
    • I have several Tier III roles for any Ratkin who do not belong to any Freak Aspects.
    • Other Ratkin roles, such as a Rodens Munchmausen (if you must) are allowed, yet are not incentivized.
  • Rokea applications are not currently being accepted.
    • At some point in the future, if a few players get together and come up with some plausible In-Betweener group of them who happen to roll into Los Angeles, I might be convinced to go along with it if you are all just great writers with well written applications. You shouldn’t wait around for this opportunity though. And be warned, I have zero interest in approving a single, random Rokea that just hangs around on the beach.
