Banned Concepts & Characters

While, for the most part, we of Maelstrom Earth welcome most characters and concepts, especially with a very well written application, there are certain concepts that simply are not going to work. Or if they could work, we don't want them to. These are characters who are simply not tenable for roleplay, such as Ego the Living Planet. There are characters who are such ridiculous parodies that they won't work (Captain Carrot, Howard the Duck). And there are some characters who are of such a dark persuasion that there is no roleplay for them that we are comfortable permitting on the game (Kilgrave, Eros the Titan).

Removing a character from the Banned list will require a unanimous vote from all active staff members, and the app itself will require approval from both an App staffer and the Headwiz. When the player retires from that character, the character is immediately freezered in the Banned category again.

This list is what occurred to us during the setup process and is by no means all inclusive. There are, undoubtedly, things that we simply could not anticipate. However, these are good starting points to get a feel for what we steer clear of here.
