Welcome to the new Muppet College Dorms. Game Information. A. Application. In order to join the dorms, you need to fill out the following form and submit it to me via the forum's mailer or PM or through my regular online address if you happen to have that as well. All previous residents shall be contacted first as we attempt to settle everybody back into the main dormhouse. Application Form: 1 First Name. 2 User Name. 3 Muppet Roommate(s). 4 Room Number. 5 Birthdays. 6 Valid working email address so we can contact you in the event of dormwide news. Please wait until your applications have been resolved before posting in the thread itself. Each applicant shall be attended to individually. Posts made by people not as yet approved to move in will be deleted without prejudice against that person. B. Roommates. Regarding Muppets one can choose to have as roommates at the dorms, keep in mind the following guidelines. 1 An applicant can select up to a total of five (5) Muppet characters as roommates if they so desire. You don't have to have five if you don't want five, I leave that to each individual applicant to decide. 2 Characters from all Henson productions are available to be chosen as roommates with a few exceptions. a. Baby Muppets... What would they be doing at a college/town environment anyway? b. Human characters from the shows or movies, it'd be weird to find them being "manipulated" by other people. 3 Fanfic created Muppet characters are allowed, so long as you have at least one (1) actual Muppet character for each fanfic character of your own creation. 4 If selecting more than one roommate, please try to choose those who go well together. If you take Little Jerry, then mayhaps it'd be a good idea to have the rest of the Monotones. If you take one member of a duo like Statler or Red or Biff, then it'd make sense to take their accompanying partner as well. 5 The one overriding rule we have is that once a character has been selected by a resident, they cannot be chosen by anyone else for that term. Consult the roster thread to see who's been taken so far, and thus help when choosing roommates. Muppet College Dorms List 6 If you feel so inclined, you may change roommates. First make sure they haven't been taken by anyone else and then contact me about making said changes. I would ask you think before requesting said changes, as the characters you have as roommates are the ones others will associate with you and I will not abide another revolving room situation where people are asking me to change roommates every other week. C. Rooms. The rooms in the dorms are numbered from 1 through to 59. Please select one from what is available at the time of submitting your application. Please choose from those remaining from Rooms #1-#29, as we wish to fill up the first two floors first, moving upwards to the other floors should demand for joining the dorms prove necessary to go there. A floor-by-floor map of the dormhouse will be provided within the dorms' description. D. Birthdays. Please include your own birthday and a birthday for each Muppet member of your party. Search for Character Birthdays at the Muppet Wiki. If you can't find one for your particular character, then: 1 Submit the airdate of when the character was first seen onscreen, or 2 Provide that particular character's Muppeteer's birthday. E. Gameplay/Dorms Life. Please take notice of the following guidelines. 1 For simplification, there will be three main dorm gameplay threads: a. New Year of Memories: January-April, b. Summer Vacation: May-August, and c. Home for the Holidays: September-December. These threads will be regenerated as we go through the years, invariably closed and replaced with a new one for each appropriate term. Also, if you submit an application for residency and are accepted, please make an effort to participate therein, either in your own individual everyday routines with your roommates or interacting with others. Though you don't have to be plugged in 24/7 nor have every other post be one of your own,the degree to which members participate will influence application approvals when resubmitted at the opening of each new term/thread. 2 You can use the following thread to post a descript of what your individual rooms look like, according to your own tastes and those of your roommates. Having this along with the layout of the dormhouse itself in a separate thread will make it easier to find everyone's place. MC Dorms Descriptions 3 You can interact with other people's roommates, but please do not outright control them directly. The only time when this will be allowed is if either: a. You are staging a Muppety musical number or play/movie with parts for everyone, or b. You have been asked to temporarily look after another resident's roommates. 4 If you have an idea for a storyline involving yours and others' roommates that will span multiple posts/pages, please consult me about it first. I sincerely hope this will help cut down on the apparent overdramatizations in recent times, and I would also say that you try to keep all Muppet characters in character. There is some wiggle room for a bit of violence, it's been present in all Henson productions, but PLEASE do not let it get carried away. The last thing I will say is ultimately, have fun, and hope you enjoy your stay here at our home on the MC forums.
