Some roleplayers find it easier to "get into" a game if they have a character with connections, plots, etc. Other roleplayers may wish to offer characters of their own creation for plot purposes, or simply to create a character. This thread provides a way for players to browse over available adoptables, as well as a way for 'Souls roleplayers to advertise their own characters.
If you're interested in adopting a listed character, contact the individual adopter/owner. These characters are not "officially sponsored" or canon characters. If your adoptable has a forum account, ask the character's adopter/owner for the password. The 'SA does not give passwords to adoptable accounts except to the character's adopter/owner. A sidenote: we do not reset post counts!

Players are encouraged to establish specific and exact terms for reclaiming adoptables -- e.g., terms for player inactivity, personality, pack membership, etc.
Sometimes, players do not set very clear terms. There is then a lot of ambiguity about the agreement. For example, basic agreements over AIM or PM can be open to all kinds of interpretation and argument later about what the character was supposed to do, what their history/personality was, etc. Players writing clearer "contract" terms for adoption leave less room for these disputes.
Remember that especially stringent contracts may also make adoptable characters less attractive to players looking to adopt. In general, we do definitely recommend giving adopting players freedom; part of roleplay's fun comes from not controlling every single aspect of everything, after all.
If a player has violated an adoption contract and you wish to reclaim the character:
Our default assumption is that if you created the character and adopted it out, inactivity is always a term for reclaiming. Do note though, that there are situations where it's unkind/impolite to reclaim even an inactive character.
