There are guards there who will check on individuals deemed suspicious, like Gunther (I don't think people are lenient of tall guys who seems to hide things in trenchcoats and wearing a huge hat) or if the mages' identification spell detect something suspicious. I see it kinda like airport security, only I don't think they really need a metal detector.

this is often the case, of course not necessarily. Most people just like to show one of their OCs as their avatar, thus representing them. Not everyone does, but I guess most people would assume that you'd want Sonic to represent you since he is your avatar and most People just don't like fictional videogame characters in Felarya.

Well the best thing you could do is create a character that is a species that already exists in Felarya. You can always post new ideas on the forum though!

About the avatar thing... I hope people don't think I'm a man-eating fairy, because I'm just a 27-year-old good and normal-sized man. xD But yes, some of us like to show our OCs as our avatar in this forum.

Now about character creation, as it has been mentioned, you better check the current species in Felarya, either predator or prey. Document yourself on which one fits your character better and learn how he/she could be implemented in the Felaryan setting better. It's a hard process, but with some feedback, you can flesh out a character that both pleases you and fits Felarya.

When creatign a character, you have two options;
To use a species that is native to Felarya; such as a Felaryan naga or dridder. (There are non-Felaryan variants of these species too.)
Or you can come up with an offworld character, someone of a species who isn't in the wiki.

Keep in mind that if you do choose to make a Felaryan native species, then you will have all the information on them available to you, which will make things much easier. You can't contradict things that are in canon though. Another obvious thing is that since they grew up in Felarya, they have the knowledge and experience that would impart.
As Feadraug has said, you will have something that will obviously fit in, since their species is already accepted.

If you choose to come up with something of your own, then obviously you will have the option to come up with whatever you want. However, since they would be n offworlder, they wouldn't have the same experience that a native would.
In addition, if you come up with something completely new, you run the risk of making something that just doesn't fit with the setting.

Since you are new, I strongly suggest that you talk to some older members about your idea, if you have one already. They will be able to provide invaluable feedback.

Everyone does this. I talk to people about my ideas and people talk to me about their ideas. This is a community, the chance for good ideas favours the connected mind.

Yep, I have that thought as I was talking from the perspective of someone creating their first character. Better be sure you're in the right path by looking up the wiki for good info about some already established species to begin with.

Arturia is too good to be one of my characters. I'm just paying homage to her. I know most people are actually used to seeing that spelled with an h, but ever since seeing it spelled without one I've never included it.

That said, I've never had an avatar that included one of my characters. I'm fairly certain on these boards my avatar has always been of Zefiris (Scrapped Princess), Arturia (Fate/Stay Night), or Penny (Inspector Gadget). I don't think I've used anything else.



As to races and characters, I'd say it depends on comfort level. I've done writing before Felarya, I just hadn't done any recently. It was easy for me to incorporate past participles and build upon them to create what is now my story. A lot of my characters are actually accidents or mistakes - S'ryne for one was never meant to be anything special. I have no idea where Euna came from. Ion and Nyselyn were in there from the get go. So was Warismat - actually, this is not the first story of mine where a Ti'Glath named Warismat was a central character....

It is the first time I've killed him off though. Heh.

Reya and Aidee were opposite sides of the spectrum. I have always loved the Eurhyssa wasp design, but I decided to feature my main character as a dridder. While I am arachnophobic, I can recognize the beauty and ingenuity in the design. The research I had to do into creating Reya was quite extensive, and I learned a lot along the way. Additionally, Reya and Jewel Dridders alike now share many ideas - Autu provided the idea for hair color and the initial implementation of her color pattern. Lyiba has localized a lot more of her detailed features, and for the first time showed her carapace as 'hard'. AJ, CB, and Sean added in bits and pieces when I was initially fleshing out the design, and FS provided feedback for a lot of my stories.



As has been said before, one has to be willing to let your character evolve. Notice I didn't say change - a good character doesn't require change. But as time goes by they will evolve or devolve in accordance with the skill of the author and the feedback of the reader.

I'll also add that when you are going to make a character a good start would be picking a race that isn't normally used. Felarya already has enough nagas, fairies and dridders to choke a dimensional whale with. Try using sphinxes, or squamataurs, or chlaenas, or jotuns, or even slimoids, or practically anything in the minor races section. It's a shame that beings with so many posibilities get often shunned for what everyone else follows.

This is more a thread for general in-universe questions, but I will answer this anyway.
Stars have to do with your forum rank. It is nothing important, don't worry about it.

Officially: Unknown

- Currently, we know that humans can only crossbreed with other near-human species (Elf/Human hybrids have been confirmed by Karbo to be possible)
- It is currently unknown if a human can produce a human/fairy hybrid by mating with a fairy.

Unofficially: Probably not (Keep in mind, this is just unofficial theorizing, taken from various forum discussions)

- A large number of people seem to feel that even humanoid species like Nekos and Inu would be too different for a human to crossbreed with and produce a child, so Fairies would also be out of the question.
- Even Fairies cannot crossbreed with other non-fairy species, besides Harpies, in the case of male fairies (Elementals don't really count, since the mating is done through magical means)

Personal views on why it should not be allowed
- Prevent abuses of Fairy magic
- Prevent people from saying "Oh, he/she is a human/fairy hybrid, and isn't voracious. He/She could totally get into Negav"
- A half-fairy with full use of fairy magic seems like it could lead to quite a few mary-sues/gary-stus (My personal opinion, remmeber)

Also, no, a non-voracious human/fairy hybrid would not be able to openly enter Negav. Assuming he/she takes after the fairy parent, and has wings and full use of fairy magic, they would likely be killed on sight.

It should be noted that human/fairy hybrids HAVE been done in other stories, with varying degrees of success. Depends how maturely an author can handle it, really.
