+news Upgrades

When you wish to upgrade a section of your application — generally +abilities and +skills — you must submit a +request that details this upgrade. We ask that you provide:

  • a detailed explanation that one would find in an application. If the upgrade is a rewrite (improvement of an aspect of your ability or gaining experience in a skill, as opposed to a new skill or manifestation), then please submit the rewritten portion in its entirety;
  • a note regarding how your character came to earn this improvement. Where possible, please provide logs that display on-screen development, or other justification. If you are +requesting an upgrade that does not have the background justification (such as an emotional manifestation that triggers unexpectedly, IC), then explain what you can about the situation.

It is very important for you to note that upgrades are considered to be a rare occasion. Some characters — in fact, many characters — will go through their existence on the game without upgrades to either section. We will not approve multiple upgrades to an +ability in one +request unless the circumstances are exceptional somehow, and may ask you to choose, although +skills will be treated with more leniency — but we may ask you to scale back all the same.

We will also not approve upgrades if they are requested within a short frame of time of one another, as we believe time is required for a character to develop significant manifestations and improvements. We may also deny upgrades that seem to deviate too wildly from the original +ability, or expand in too broad a direction — basically, upgrades are treated with the same scrutiny as an application, so such criteria applies.

After enough upgrades, staff may inform you that we will not be approving further upgrades to your +ability, as we believe it has reached a maximum potential. Characters that have been apped to be exceptionally powerful already may also be denied, as well as players who have had difficulty in the past working within +ability limits. This may occur with +skills too in extreme cases.
