The unlock system is how your character regains their canon memories. Memories unlock at a fixed rate, and most characters will have finished unlocking their memories in five months. Memories, items, plots, and changes to canon must be redeemed using the proper redemption form.MEMORY 'TABLES'
Every character needs to have a "memory table" in their journal. Meaning there has to be some way to keep track of what memories they've gained and what memories they have yet to gain. You can do this however you like - a fancy table, or a list in plain text. We've provided code below that players can use for their 'tables', which takes advantage of some html tricks to count up memories all by itself! See it in use here.CHARACTERS WITH LITTLE CANON
If your character only has a small part in your fandom such as one chapter or one episode, please feel free to contact the mods. We can help you flesh the list out! The minimum required memories is 20, and we'd hate for a player to feel left out or like they couldn't pick someone up to join the fun here. There is an example of someone who has taken a single movie character and given them plenty of memories to regain here. Be as creative as you need!DREAMS
When you redeem memories for a character the memories will come to them in a dream. This can be a recurring dream or a one-time-only dream, it's up to the player. Once you have "unlocked" a memory on your memory table you can give that dream to your character as many times as you want/need.REMEMBERING PEOPLE
A character that is regaining memories will never fully know the complete canon of another character. They can only know so much about that character as they actually do in canon.ITEMS FROM HOME
This is reserved for personal items only, something like a ring, wand or weapon. This does not include larger items like a house. If you would like a large item from home and it is something that cannot be built in the game world due to the lack of technological advances or supernatural powers please speak to the mods. We can work out a plot for you!CANON POINTS
You may update a character's canon point at any time during their gameplay as long as the new canon point is from the same canon they apped in with. As an example, Wolverine has applied to the game with a comics canon point. He can update his canon point to include new comics at any time, as long as he hasn't changed his canon already that month.PB CHANGES
Sometimes a face isn't working out for a character, or something happens to them as they "unlock" memories that forces them to change faces.PREGNANCIES
Characters who want to add to their family are welcome to redeem a pregnancy plot. The form should be completed and submitted by both of the parents in question, and is subject to mod approval. The mod team just needs to keep track of these so that every woman in the game isn't pregnant at once.YOUR OWN PLOTLINE
This is reserved for large, possibly game-wide plots that a player may want to introduce into the game. Things like a body swap plotline or even taking all of the game characters to their home world for a week. Players have used these plots to bring in enemy invasions from their home world, space ships, or send their characters on a time travel adventure. Be as creative as you like, but remember the mods have the right to veto something although this would be a rare occurrence.
Players are expected to keep track of the activities they have done to earn extra memories and post a redemption form for them.
