So to start off, the comparisons in this article and topic are being presented as an example of themes, techniques, and different points of view in writing. I ask that the owners of the characters take this article with understanding.
Unlike the distinction of Good vs Evil, a Sympathetic Character is not always a good person, and an Unsympathic Character is not always an evil one. This is an effective way to add an element of grey to black and white story set ups, and have been used in countless mediums.
A Sympathic Character can be defined as a character who may have noticable flaws that cast a negative light on their morality or behavior in general, but are redeemed through some manner of their personality, actions, or mentality.

Given the repeated interest in the subject, I am calling for everyone to make a list of things they would like to see in the story remodel/retcon. My current idea is to make a seperate space in the wiki, like a Retcon RP page where we can iron out the new details in RP and then transplant them to where they would properly belong, that way we have a centralized operation where we know everything is if needed for reference.
A general concencus on the subject matter should be reached before a retcon / remodel of a part of the story can be approved. Please provide your list in the comments of this blog for convinence. I will add mine at a later date.Read more >
The War Arc will be drastically reformmated and changed given several unfortunate circumstances, and much of my future content is being suspended or locked off until such time I deem it worth my time investing in them.
I am giving full notice that beyond this point in story, I am going to distance my involvement in the story and its happenings, and have no plans to participate in major arcs with a main character, to be clear, by the end of the 'final battle', I will have no main character and I will not likely designate one again for the far foreseeable future, until such time that I feel it worthwhile participating on that scale.
I will continue playing my various side character roles but will seek to avoid dragging them into the main story…Read more >
Characters who have not finished their respective story arcs and roleplays tying into the War of Worlds may not participate, and the longer theytake to complete said stories, the later they will be put into the story. Each character is given their own missions, and they should focus on completing their mission rather than intervening at random. Missions being abandoned for another count as victories for the enemy. Roleplays will be done with Missions, in which players/their characters, depending on their affiliations, are granted story missions to complete. These range from sabotage, battlefields, survival encounters, boss eliminations, espionage, and more.
The route the war takes is purely dependant on the actions roleplayers ta…Read more >
It is my current decision to permenantly ban all alternate accounts aside from Drake Ryunexo. The ban for this alternate account will be released on the same day as Dragon Kid's primary account. However, all of the following accounts have been permenantly banned from chat:
Axis of Creation
Smaxis of Destruction
Dr Salt and Dr Pepper
All listed accounts are not to be seen or used again, they will be struck with a new permenant ban. Any staff who wish to reverse this decision should consult Axis of Destruction before taking action.

If you're wondering why Chaos is currently inactive on the Wiki, know that it's because any motivation Chaos had towards this place is dead. Not dead because of lack of interest, but because of the additudes of two members. Until one of them realizes that people in question can react at their own levels and don't always want "advice" shoved down their throats because of their outlook on the world around them- In fact said person contributes heavily to that outlook- and the other gets a better grasp on their temper when things don't pan out their way- at the very least not having a mad fit, at the most reigning in the temper altogether- Chaos refuses to edit anything related to them.
Additionally, Chaos would prefer it if said parties would …Read more >
For one reason or another, I'm going to be writing a ton of side stories for characters. Normally this wouldn't be worth a blog post, but the rating for some of these stories will be mature as opposed to teen oriented because not every theme or side story can be depicted in a "soft" or light manner. For all of the mature side stories, there will be a disclaimer and it is advised that they only be read by the intended audience.Read more >
Notice: This message is directed at every inactive user and or user affected by the recent changes. The Clean Up Crew is doing its job and will continue to do so until further notice.
If you've been paying attention, the number of pages on the Wiki has dropped and changes have been made to pages. This is because of the continued work of the present team in cleaning up the wiki, namely because of the deletion of pages. We are in the process of deleting pages from inactive users or that serve no purpose on the Wiki as it is presently(i.e. Old Guidelines or year old character pages with to recent edits to them by their creators, if said creators are inactive or otherwise gone from the wiki). There are currently two types of deletion on the Wiki…Read more >

As most of you know, we've been discussing reorganizing TZ and giving it a fresher set of regulations, guidelines, support for newer members, etc. While this is going on, I'd like to ask that any smaller issues aside from editing for grammar and uniform style be posted here in the comments below so that they can be fixed ASAP if you are unable to fix the issue yourself or if the issue requires more than one person to properly resolve. To do so, list your issue and explain the cause(Be specific). Here's an example and a real issue in one:
Issue: Cannot update Wiki Navigation to replace Top 10 in the Omniverse section with Top Ten section and include both Top 10 list:Top Ten in the TZverse(Standard) and Top 10 list:Top Ten Dungeons Top Ten Li…Read more >
Ok, here's an idea while we're redesigning TZ...
As the blog title says; TZ Archives.
The idea for this is to make an entirely new wiki to (as the name applies) store complete pages onto the Archives as we focus on redesigning TZ. This could also be a test wiki to test out some new stuff like layouts and such, to start off, if this idea goes through. I do obviously promote Axis, Chaos, Kam and I to be the main staff at the Archives as we are usually the most active (This does mean that since my Summer holidays have started, I can be much more active). Now I do add that any of the older members can come along and help, but if you're not going to be as active, then don't bother.

For the next two weeks, I may or may not be on at all, with the exception of weekends. This is because I'll be juggling a five hour work day as part of an internship and attending driving school for three hours a day after working. If for some reason I am needed, leave a message on my wall and I'll respond when possible- if possible.Read more >
I will be returning home Saturday around the afternoonRead more >
Due to the recent influx of characters with Omni- abilities without valid explanation other than "They were born with them" or "Their parents were..." ALL characters with Omni- abilities made within the past month and from now on will need to be additionally reviewed by an Admin. If the page and creator does not give a valid reason denoting why character xyz has the ability other than to help out in a storyline, they will LOSE the ability, end of story. While this may seem unfair to those of you who have such characters, it is even more unfair to flaunt that your character has Omni(Fill in the blank) and mess with the storylines or characters that others have established because you want to beat the bad guy or prove your character's superi…Read more >
The wiki is undergoing changes that make certain pages unnecessary now. I will begin the Repurpose Project, to make the pages into either characters or guides.
The unneeded pages are:
Stat related pages
Some pages also have unneeded sections. These are:
Missions(There will a specific page for these later on, but until then, these sections are of little importance.)

It is for you to tell me anything regarding character personality, appearance, etc. It's very much difficult to make a design for a character I know nothing about when I have nothing to go on. I could always wing it, but then you lose the personal touch you'd prefer. So far I have done Zane's, and have been meaning to do DP's for a little while now. The other ones I know almost nothing about right now, so if your character is A. A pillar character, and B, the main cast, I'd like to have all the descriptions if you can this next week. If I don't see any effort done once Friday is hit (next, not this week's), well I may start guessing. And trust me. If I have to guess, sucks ta be your character.
I more or less have DP's info, so I think I'm …Read more >
This is a short little parody of Hellsing Ultimate. Most characters belong to the creators of Hellsing. A limited amount belong to us, and this is just for fun. Enjoy.

We've improved and added a few important things to the wiki, but now another task has come about: we need to add details to our smaller pages like the Realms and blank Character Sheets. Minor edits to pages for spelling and grammar should also be made to improve quality and clarity. Other than that, we're still on the right track and should continue doing what we're doing.

So far on this wiki, we've established the basics. We've created pillar characters(Protagonists, Neutral, Antagonists. Still in progress.), locations(in progress), shops(in progress) and an alignment system(of sorts) along with a few guidelines(Species and Leveling are works in progress that should be completed ASAP) to hep other users begin their stories in this wiki.
What we need to focus on now(besides completing all of the basic things we need) is the advanced works like quests, determining alignment(via actions), tiering(really just the requirements to advance from one tier to the next), creating npcs/generic to advanced enemy characters(I'll spear head this minor project) and the plot line for characters who are not included on the ma…Read more >
