background and putting in a short history of your character is an excellent way for interactions staff to know something about you that they can use in RP situations. We recommend you do this as soon as possible.
Try to keep the background information as concise as possible, just a few lines about where your character came from, his/her geneology, any important background facts, and perhaps the direction where you'd like to see your character going. You have a maximum of 3000 typed characters for your background.
This would insure that IA folks treat your character as you'd like to be treated.
*NOTE* All nobility backgrounds must be pre-approved by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. After a staff review, your character concept may be approved and you will then receive a confirmation e-mail or staff meeting. See nobility for additional information.
