ArcheAge Breakdown Character Sheet
300+ Questions
(Omit any fields that don’t pertain, or that you do not want or need to answer.)


Name Information

First Name: (Real first name.)
Middle Name: (If your character has a middle name. If not, omit.)
Last Name: (Current last name. Delete or leave blank if no surname. Note: Elves in lore do not traditionally have surnames.)
Maiden Name: (This applies to characters whose surnames have changed due to marriage, adoption or anything of the sort. Omit if your character’s last name is still unchanged.)
Nicknames: (Names other characters call your character, usually shorter versions of your character’s name.)
Aliases: (Other names your own character calls themselves or prefers to be known by that isn’t a “nickname”.)
Titles: (Any prestige that comes with your character’s name, like “Countess,” “Baron,” “Lord” or anything of the sort. This is especially for the use of noble characters.)
Name Meaning: (This does not need to be a real-world meaning. You can use your imagination.)
Name Origin: (Where and when is it from? Not real-world, but in game. Again, feel free to use your imagination.)


Demographic Information

Race: (Nuian, Elf, Harani, Firran, Sallium, Malika, Ynystere, etc. Not sure which races are available in game, or what limits you can toy with? Check out this thread.)
Nationality: (Nuian or Haranyan – referring to continental affiliation. If something else, explain.)
Birthplace: (Where they were born.)
Citizenship: (To what rulership they pay taxes and/or primarily reside. Examples: Two Crowns, East Ishvara, Austera, the Firetalon Tribe, etc. These aren’t zone names but ruling parties. If you are not sure what your character’s citizenship would be, ask. The game is not straightforward about this, and “Lord Perinoor Ruins” isn’t actually a ruling body.)
Country: (This would be the zone your character primarily resides in: Hasla, Solis Headlands, Halcyona, Sanddeep, etc.)
Other Land: (Any other land your character might own.)

Class: (Is your character a commoner? A noble? Homeless? Tribal? A serf?)
Income: (How much does your character make in a year? Or a month? Or a week? Or a day? If you’re not sure about the exchange rate in game and what is average, IC, use language like “above average income” or “average income,” or “slightly below average income” or “disgustingly immeasurable mountains of income.”)
Debt: (Does your character owe a lot of money to someone? How much, and to whom?)
Assets: (What assets does your character own, and how much is all of that roughly worth?)

Age: (Your character’s age. Note: Firrans come of age in their teens; 15-17 or so. Elves do not fully physically mature until 50, and are not considered adults until about 100. Elves can live for hundreds of years, but in present day, it is rare for any not to die in combat around 300-400 years. Nuians and Harani (as well as other ordinary human races) have normal real-world human lifespans. RPers in AA generally use a 1:1 passage of time rule, meaning every real life day = one IC day, despite the game system using a 1:6 passage of time rule. Careful not to age up too quickly.)
Birthdate: (The use of real-world month names is canon in ArcheAge, and you can use words like “August,” “February,” “April,” etc. – From Tales of the Twelve: “September in Delphinad was still summer.”)

Sex: (What sex your character was born as.)
Gender: (How your character identifies. Does not necessarily need to be the same as sex.)

Languages: (What languages can they speak, read, write, and understand?)
Accent: (Describe their accent in their spoken languages.)
Voice: (What does their voice sound like? Feel free to list or link any references.)

Sexual Orientation: (Are they straight? Gay? Bi? Pansexual? Demisexual? Polyamorous? Any combination of all of that?)


Physical Appearance

Height: (How tall your character is. For reference, Harani males have been guessed to be around 5’2” – 5’4” (157cm – 163cm) and Firran males are estimated to be around 6’5” – 6’7” (195cm - 200cm). Measurements are not exact, however, and your character does not necessarily have to be the same height they are represented as in game. This data is just for a point of reference.)
Weight: (If you need a reference, use this chart to approximate.)
Build: (Lean, muscular, pudgy, thin, slim, slender, etc. Any words you can think of to describe your character’s body type.)

Eye Size: (Are they average? A little larger than normal? A little smaller?)
Eyelid Type: (Single eyelid? Double? Is it hooded? There are a lot of studies on eyelid types online if you’re confused about this field.)
Pupil: (What sort of pupil does your character have? It might be totally normal, but for Firrans the pupil might be faded or a gradient instead of a simple black, circular pupil. If your character has any issues with their eyes, they might also appear a little different IC than how they appear in-game.)
Nose Shape: (Is it flat? Do they have a pug nose? A tall nose with a bump in the bridge? Is it turned upwards, or does it hook?)
Nose Height: (Where does their nose rest on their face? Right in the middle? Lower, closer to the lips?)
Nostril Shape: (Does your character have wide nostrils? Average? Are they thin slits?)
Lip Shape: (Describe the shape of your character’s lips. This also has a good deal of resources online if you’re not sure how to describe it.)
Ear Size: (Big? Small? Average? Long?)
Ear Shape: (Very pointy? Long and knife-like? Delicately pointed? Round? Big and floppy? Elves and Firrans can have a lot of fun with this one.)
Facial Hair: (Does your character have facial hair? Describe it!)
Facial Features: (How about freckles? A birthmark? A mole?)
Facial Scars: (Any scars or permanent injuries on the face? Burns?)

Neck Thickness: (Is their neck thick? Thin? Average? Muscular?)

Waist Size: (You can generally describe this, or provide a waist measurement. The waist is the “dip” in the hourglass shape, or where your stomach is (or just above).)
Hip Size: (This would be where your character might wear a belt. You can give a measurement or a general description.)
Leg Shape: (Are they long? Short? Thin sticks? Shapely?)

Titles: [color=#999999](Any prestige that comes with your character’s name, like “Countess,” “Baron,” “Lord” or anything of the sort. This is especially for the use of noble characters.)[/color]
Name Meaning: [color=#999999](This does not need to be a real-world meaning. You can use your imagination.)[/color]
Name Origin: [color=#999999](Where and when is it from? Not real-world, but in game. Again, feel free to use your imagination.)[/color]


[size=15][b]Demographic Information[/b][/size]

Race: [color=#999999](Nuian, Elf, Harani, Firran, Sallium, Malika, Ynystere, etc. Not sure which races are available in game, or what limits you can toy with? Check out [url=http://archeageroleplay.com/forum_threads/2310780]this thread[/url].)[/color]
Nationality: [color=#999999](Nuian or Haranyan – referring to continental affiliation. If something else, explain.)[/color]
Birthplace: [color=#999999](Where they were born.)[/color]
Citizenship: [color=#999999](To what rulership they pay taxes and/or primarily reside. Examples: Two Crowns, East Ishvara, Austera, the Firetalon Tribe, etc. These aren’t zone names but ruling parties. If you are not sure what your character’s citizenship would be, ask. The game is not straightforward about this, and “Lord Perinoor Ruins” isn’t actually a ruling body.)[/color]
Country: [color=#999999](This would be the zone your character primarily resides in: Hasla, Solis Headlands, Halcyona, Sanddeep, etc.)[/color]
Other Land: [color=#999999](Any other land your character might own.)[/color]

Income: [color=#999999](How much does your character make in a year? Or a month? Or a week? Or a day?

Age: [color=#999999](Your character’s age. Note: Firrans come of age in their teens; 15-17 or so. Elves do not fully physically mature until 50, and are not considered adults until about 100. Elves can live for hundreds of years, but in present day, it is rare for any not to die in combat around 300-400 years. Nuians and Harani (as well as other ordinary human races) have normal real-world human lifespans. RPers in AA [i]generally[/i] use a 1:1 passage of time rule, meaning every real life day = one IC day, despite the game system using a 1:6 passage of time rule. Careful not to age up too quickly.)[/color]
Birthdate: [color=#999999](The use of real-world month names is canon in ArcheAge, and you can use words like “August,” “February,” “April,” etc. – From Tales of the Twelve: “September in Delphinad was still summer.”)[/color]
