View Full Version : Is there a wrong way to do a profile with digimon?

I was curious if there is a wrong way to d a profile? Now I've joined other sites for the sole reason of RPing with a digimon Now I believe the case is that it is like RPing. You can screw it up if there isn't enough details but other then that it's up in the air. Here is two examples of profiles I did. I believe they are both crappy because I'm still learning how to do it.

Here is the better first.

Name:Maw Andrew Wane
Description: A warrior that has been battle damage to the point he is part robot. The only reason he was given the operation is because he fought many foes with weapons to save his sister. She died while he was attempting a rescue, and in the end she died so Maw wouldn't have to. he blames himself for her death because of that. That is the reason why he is half robotic. Half of his face is robotic along with his right arm, half his chest and his left leg. He wears a brown Fedora over his head and black sunglasses which hides his half robotic face. Over that his torsal he wears a white long sleeved shirt and a black tie.The black gloves he wears hides his robotic hand same as his long sleeved white t-shirt does. Blue jeans with a brown trench coat over his blue jeans and brown sneakers. The only friend he has is his digimon. For his digimon a warrior ready to fight past the point of reality with him. His Digimon Pokomon, the reason he did not give up on life.

Personality:A warror bound by honor who is always changing because of his digimon.

D-Arc Color:(Not exactly sure what that means. I think that it is the color while they evolved) Purple

Digimon Partner:Pokomon

Digimon Partner Evolutions & Descriptions:
(This is to show the path I chose for my digimon not if it has evolve to that level.)
Pokomon>Renamon (http://wiki.dats.us/index.php?title=Renamon)>Leomon (http://wiki.dats.us/index.php?title=Leomon)>Loader Leomon (http://wiki.dats.us/index.php?title=Loader_Leomon)>Bantyo Leomon (http://wiki.dats.us/index.php?title=Bantyo_Leomon)

Digimon Partner Personality:That of a fallow warrior, often more serious then Maw, which allows Maw to be less serious. One is always funny when the other isn't and the other is serious. The both always find a way to make the other smile when the other can't.

Digimon Partner Attacks: (This section will also be skipped if the Digimon isn't custom. Attacks for all levels should be added)

Back story:During a moment of great loneliness after his replacement Maw found the lonely Pokomon about being hurt. A couple of unhonorable teenagers were picking and hurting Pokomon. Maw being the honroable person forugh them to defend the little Pokomon. After the unhonor teenagers were defeated Maw took the little Pokomon home and mending Pokomon till he was better. Through the treatment and kindness Maw treated the Pokomon, he evoled to Renamon. The two most fought and train together after that fighting whatever Digimon is unhonorable or on the rampage the two fight the Digimon. Either together or when Maw hadn't been training Renamon forces Maw to fight by himself till help is needed.

Now here is the bad one.

Known Digimon: Renamon

Rank: Rookie

Known attacks:
Diamond Storm

Evolution Requirements so far:
Digivise containing data of Veemon and Renamon


Know Digimon's Data been absorbed:

Now I believe the second one is bad because of the lack of detail. So since it lacks the detail is it a bad way to do a profile. So would that be the wrong way to create a digimon profile because it lacks the detail or is it both are good because it is in a different formats? Now I am new at this so I leave it to the great people here since I do not know enough to truely know the anwser.

Generally they'll give you set parameters to follow when filling out a profile. Like they'll say:

"Here is the character sheet you need to fill out:

Name of Character: The name of your character
Gender: Male or Female?
Age: Character's Age
Physical Description: What your character looks like
Personality: Your character's personality
Digivice color: The color of your digivice( in your case, it says D-Arc color. It's asking you for your digivice color. The name of the digivice is D-Ark. The D-Ark was in Season 3, Tamers.)
Digimon Partner: Your Character's partner
Partner Biography: Your partner's life
Partner Evolution Line:Your partner's evolution line"

Those are just some basic ones they might give you. If they don't give you one, then just put as many details into it as possible. Either way, be detailed and descriptive.

I also suggest not putting in EVERY bit of detail. Leave some wiggling room for the plot to deveope around your character, something of a mystery. I always find it fun to do.

The first isn't bad, though depending on the administrator or topic starter, they might disallow it on the terms of "...that's just not fitting with the setting at all". In my opinion, every added detail helps the starter/admin work with the player to create a more enjoyable environment. I mean, who would want to play a game where all the characters exist in a vacuum? What's their past? What's their goals? Those kind of things make the character as much as the description does.
