The Longest Night: A Walking Dead story character submission sheet!
The story thread has been released! You may still submit characters, in fact, I'd love if you did, but if you have, or just want to read and/or vote casually, then here's the link: https://www.telltalegames.com/community/discussion/98230/the-longest-night-a-walking-dead-interactive-story-by-maxbear29
Hello, to everyone on the Telltale games forum. It's cool if you don't know who I am, I wasn't really all that well known while I was super active, but if you do, hello! Just as an FYI, I'm out of touch as fuck, as someone who hasn't been on here for 4 months, but I really want to write, and I have no way to do so. I hope I get some level of support, and I really hope you guys enjoy whatever I end up with. I have bad commitment issues, but with nothing going on in my life, and an urge to write for an audience again, this is the place I used to do such things, so I am making a triumphant return to writing! I'm playing it safe here, and doing a walking dead-esque story, but if this goes well enough, I'll be damned if I don't branch out and do other stuff.
It's dark, dreary, and disgusting in the world, but can your character find the secret to survival? I guess you'll have to see. Now, I want at the bare minimum 5 characters before I begin the actual story, and I hope to get far more than that. It's FAR more fun to me if I have 20-30+ characters to write about. Even if you feel uncreative, and feel as if you cannot create a character, you can just submit yourself as a person! Every character is valued, and will be treated as a "main character", no matter when they are introduced. There will be decisions to be voted on, and I hope this goes as well as I want it to. Thank you in advance for any amount of support, advertising on my behalf anywhere you think would be useful (like I said, it's been a number of months), or just submitting a character and reading idly while things happen, I appreciate all of it. Here's a template for how to submit a character, and I promise to stick to this once I've started it. Like I said, thanks in advance everyone
Name: Just the name of your character. Can be your name, your username, your pet's name, a name you made up, whatever you'd like, fairly straightforward.
Age: Hopefully needs no explanation.
Personality: Their personality traits. Can be malicious and greedy, and only cares about himself, can be a selfless saint, can be a power-hungry lunatic with delusions of grandeur and a heart of gold. Whatever you'd like, I'll work with it to the best of my abilities.
Appearance: What your character looks like. Eye color, height, weight, hair color, quirks like freckles or dimples, etc.
Backstory: Where they are from, their upbringing, any specific moments in their lifetime, stuff like that. Can be long and well-thought out, can be short and sweet (lonely college student from Maine, loves family, abandoned by group, all his stuff was stolen.)
Starting point: Where we first encounter your character. (On the road, in a field, in a church, in the sewers, I can choose, whatever you'd like.)
Anyway, hopefully I get enough submissions to start soon, and thanks in advance!!!!
