Hey there! Don't worry about it not being digital. All we care about if that you made a character to you best of your abilities!

Now here's the part I hate to do... You app is a good start, but there are some things that conflict with the group's rules and guidelines. First of all, everyone starts at level 0 because the 'game' hasn't even started yet, so all characters are required to be a Recruit, and wield a Knife. (Don't worry, everyone will get a class and better weapons soon! This is just for the beginning.) You already have a lot of in game back story which just isn't possible. The idea is that everyone starts with a clean slate and builds their character's story with other members in the group!

Secondly, in the character creation guidelines, we stated that characters have realistic hair and eye colours. As AWESOME as it would be, purple hair isn't exactly realistic. Since she's Japanese, she should have black or dark brown hair naturally. Without having to change Miyuki's backstory too much, she could have maybe blonde or light coloured hair if you give a believable explanation. One example I can think of is in the manga/anime Peach Girl, where a girl named Momo had tanned skin and light reddish hair because it was bleached from chlorine from swimming all the time, and she was teased for being a Ganguro. Also perhaps you could mention a bit in her history as to how she got into online gaming. Creativity is yours! Just make it believable!!! O v O

Lastly, we're inspired by Sword Art Online and other things, but we never said this was SAO, lol. Saria and I never made any mention of being 'trapped' in the game!

Please reread the journal posts, especially Rules and Guidelines (Here: echoes-gate-online.deviantart.… ) and tweek some of the bio and I think you're set! If you're really stuck here are Saria and my apps for reference. echoes-gate-online.deviantart.… echoes-gate-online.deviantart.…
