Seeking: Friction Spar Match

Mon Nov 20, 2017 6:40 am by Yori

Looking for a spar for Alexa.

Howdy, I'm new to the forums and figured I should get my, and my characters toes wet with some good old fashion sparring. It can be a one off, or blossom into something else down the road for a friend/rival relationship. Alexa as a character is a fresh face, and an unrefined talent. I don't mind having someone at her skill level to have an event match, or someone superior to her to have a more one sided bout. I'm looking to use this regardless as a way to build …

Gonna be slow the next week or so... just had surgery IRL

Wed Nov 15, 2017 2:33 am by SleeperAgent94

Hey guys, got back from surgery today. Ruptured abdominal wall. In a LOT of pain right now, so posts will be VERY brief the next few days.

Character updates.

Wed Nov 15, 2017 4:14 pm by Lotuswarrior

Since I'm starting to get a bit busier here, I'm trying to be a bit more professional. With that I'm going to overhaul my characters and update their profiles or release them all together. I'll post any images here of the characters I release, so that you guys/girls can claim them if you want.

Also looking for some characters to interact with outside of matches.

History, is it really needed?

Post by Cirno on Wed Jan 22, 2014 2:10 pm

Doesn't it feel.. Y'know... Silly for AFW? This was that before becoming a lesbian wrestler.

Just saying, when is history actually being looked that?

I think history can be used to form a storyline, for example, if there's like two characters that had previously met in the past before they go into AFW.

Personally, I care for character's personality more than history in a bio.

But then you'd read that history through the RP thread, not the character profile itself, people tend to skip large history text and would find important stuff of it later through interactions of characters.

So personally.. I don't think History is worth writing in the bio.

Well, not every part of a character's past can be revealed in an RP, or it could take a while until a certain part get revealed. Also, while someone might be interested in a certain character, they might not necessarily check all threads that involve the characters (threads that had been completed for months or years, for example).

There's no harm in writing a short back story of some sort, I guess, but writing long paragraphs on it isn't really worth it.

At least explain why they joined the AFW.

As someone who sucks at writing profiles, yeah, I hate writing the history. I never have any idea what to put, and while most of it is unimportant bullshite anyway, it can be used to explain whatever certain quirks or attitudes characters may have.


Like Kitten said, at the very least put some effort into explaining how your characters got into AFW. It's just so annoying to see "She heard of AFW and joined because it seemed fun!"


Last I checked, most wrestling companies, and most companies in general, didn't just let you sign yourself up of your own accord.

I think, if anything, a good backstory is good for defining the personality of your character. Knowing where they came from, how they grew up and what they want out of life can be a big help in deciding just how a character should act in certain situations. So yes, I personally think a character's history is just as important as everything else in their profile.

Also, if you are planning an in depth RP with several other characters, it's good to have a history. Characters with a similar upbringing, at least in my opinion, would have better chemistry. I guess if you really aren't trying to do much more with the character than just have her get in the ring and toss around another girl, then sure, having a background is pretty pointless. But giving the character something to base their personality on is needed to really have a character that people can find interesting.

Firstly, Fukuyama was a fucking idiot.

Obviously it depends how deep you like to roleplay, but where someone comes from determines where they're going, to a massive extent. I can't imagine NOT writing at least a couple of history lines.

Seeing as it's something people sometimes struggle with, I genuinely wonder if we should have some kind of collaborative character workshop thread - post a pic you like and get the forum to piece together a bio. The AFW version of a random character generator.

Wrestling companies seem to like to recruit failed athletes who are big enough to pretend to fight but failed in the thing they really wanted to do. I bet Vinnie Mac would hire an impressive looking bodybuilder or strongman with zero wrestling experience on the spot if he came to the training facility and flexed for him, but that`s another story.^^

I like to have a little backstory to generate interest in the character, but that seldom pays dividends or lieads to storylines and sometimes even hinders me when I think of what the person would do when I think about her background.
