Rebooting an Alt


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I am considering using my alt Melodiafor the Yellowjackets in Limsa. Problem is I introduced her here on the forums as a sadistic killer villain. But only briefly. I only barely got to rp with her in game once for maybe 15 minutes before that ended abruptly.

 

So my question is, can I reboot her? Start fresh and let the stuff that was just be done? She really is unusable as is and with this stuff I'd like to just start over with her, but I don't know how you all feel about that. Thoughts?

 

And I mean a full on reboot, fanatasia and all.

Unless you've already hit 50 with her, which represents quite a bit of investment, I'd actually recommend starting with a brand new character.

 

If you've already invested in her heavily (hit 50, got gear, have vanity/glamour, etc.) then it shouldn't be a problem to reboot her, fantasia and all. Depending on how memorable said introduction was, you may get a few raised eyebrows here and there, but likely no more than that.

Conceptually, sure, you can do whatever you want, it being your character. However, it's worth considering other RPers in the equation. It sounds like the character played only a bit role in one or two scenes; in that case, there's no real significance to a retcon, and it should be no big deal. You may want to check with those involved, though, to make sure that what seemed like a small role to you wasn't actually a big deal to them.

 

EDIT: Oh, yes, and do verify that your FC doesn't have specific rules for handling retcons. I know Mysterium and a few other RP FCs have specific procedures on retcons to ensure that continuity is maintained. You wouldn't want to blow the character up and end up with your FC leader pulling you aside for a "chat." :)

Thank you. And yeah...even the other person probably forgot the scene it was that short and he ended up getting interrupted with rl isues. So likely not a big deal.

 

And our FC...LOL....I last logged in with her about 50+ days ago? I think when I do log in they will all be like "Yay a new person!" :P

If I remember correctly, you've only had one in-game scene with her and you were a little discouraged from other RP outside of it because people found the character to be a bitch...?

 

Other scenes were the journal for Nonotano and well that doesn't involve other RPers. In which case, I'd say reboot her. If x person says "isn't that the name of so and so from the journals?" you can always just say it's a coincidence or that you rerolled her into something completely different.

 

I would let the one other know just in case they still were interested in developing something with her eventually.
