Starlit Avenue's template system is far from exhaustive, and there's absolutely things we've missed. If you find yourself in a grey area, please read below to get some help.

I am planning to play an original species of my own creation. You need a custom template. To make one, please think carefully about the species, their strengths and weaknesses, and then fill out the following form and post it as a reply. A member of the staff will contact you to work on creating a custom template:

Code:
Custom Template Name: What is the name of your species?
Description: Describe this species in 1-2 short sentences.
Availability: Who can play this species? Just you? People who talk to you about it? Anyone?

Advantages: In simple terms, what do the excel at?
Disadvantages: Similarly, what are they worse than a human at?

I am planning to play a species that does not have a template. You need a public template that hasn't yet been made. Please post the template you want, and any relevant details. A member of the staff will most likely contact you to work on either making a new template, or finding a hybrid template that will meet your needs.

I'd like to suggest a specific trait for a template that I feel was missed. Please post, and include which template and a description of the trait. Traits will be added if it is something that works with the site's balance, and if it's thematically consistent with the template in question.

I'd like to suggest a condition for spellcasting. Please post the condition, and include examples for it at different levels. Conditions will be added if it is something that works with the site's balance.

Could Immortality be added to the Whereshifter template?
After some discussion, no. Werewolves are not considered traditionally immortal - when it comes up, it's more an outlier than anything else.

Template Name: Centaur.
Description: A human torso attached to a horse's body where its head and neck would be.


Advantages: 2x Speed.
Disadvantages: Restricted diet (grass/hay).
After some discussion on this, there simply isn't enough distinct to a centaur that couldn't be covered by using the 'hybrid animal' form.

Custom Template Name: Anicorn.
Description: A hornless dream unicorn originally from two dream dimensions called the Subliminal (the night anicorns) and Etherial (the day anicorns).
Availability: Discus with the owner (Etlaayz).

Advantages: In simple terms, what do they excel at?
Unicorn form.
Animal sense.
Travel Home.
Major illusions (they can create illusions...).
Longevity.
Disadvantages: Similarly, what are they worse than a human at?
Elemental weakness (light for the night anicorns and darkness for the day anicorns).
Restricted diet (herbivore).
Blood weakness (someone with their blood can control them).
Confined area (...but their illusions can only exist inside their bubble).
Fixed reality (they can not change what is there).
Magic dependency (without their specific magic, their blood will not regenerate. They must return home to heal).
I'll reach out to you on the side to discus.

I'm worried that this may be a bit complex but here goes--
(Also the character I'm intending this for is only half, so.......)

Custom Template Name: Veccieri
Description: Aliens from a far-off planet outside of the Milky Way, proficient in using raw magical energy
Availability: Anyone, but I'd prefer people ask first

Advantages:
-Vena -raw magical energy; they can form it into solid, liquid, or gas (English has other words for it)
-Flexibility of magic (They can convert magic/raw energy of other places into raw energy and back)
-Magical composition: They have a whole separate system of raw magic, like a separate circulatory system
-(optional) Healing Factor - Some people who tap into their magic just heal automatically; not everyone ends up doing this


Disadvantages:
-Emotional difficulty - Vena is woven into their being; it takes a good amount of emotional control to keep it from getting out of control
-Homeworld Danger- The homeworlds of the Veccieri are very politically volatile; most Veccieri who come out of there are exiles, or running away from the law
-Frailty - Not counting those who tap into the healing factor; they tend to be built more fragile than humans.

I did the best I could to do this:

Custom Template Name: Autonomous Digital Being (ADB)
Description: Creatures from the dataspace, either springing to life from an urban legend, or created by someone who can give form to digital matter, possessing free will to wander between the material and digital worlds, and skilled in handling digital information.
Availability: Anyone, but please contact GrimRPer.

Advantages:
- Digital Matter Body - Their body composition allows them to be lighter, while being as durable and looking little to no different from any normal being. They don't even need to breath. In its natural state their Digital Matter, is a sort of glowing mist of a color related to them.
- Non-biological - Infections and substances biologically hazardous to organic beings have no chance against their system. Chemical hazards however can still affect them.
- Data Ghosting - By dissolving into digital matter they can enter computers and a variety of electronics in general, being capable of interacting with data in there to a small degree.
- Self-Healing - Provided they are well nourished, a digital being can repair any damage on themselves over a period that can range from a few seconds for small damage (like a cut) to an hour (recovering a lost limb)
- (Optional) Unusual diet: Electricity - While they are able to consume food as normal for nourishment, consuming electricity for at least ten minutes a day is as effective as having a full course meal.

Disadvantages:
- Digital Threats - Malwares from within the dataspace can infect them and be as harmful as viruses and bacteria would be to biological beings, or even hacked into submission by a professional hacker.
- Restricted Healing - They can only heal by themselves or by someone who can produce and handle digital matter. It should be possible to reconstruct their data in a computer, but takes a professional programmer to do so over the course of hours if they can't repair themselves.
- Electromagnetism - An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) can blast apart a portion of their data and halt their self-healing for something between five minutes and half an hour, depending on the distance from the source of the pulse and its intensity.
- Water-Lagged - Digital Beings are unable to heal at their normal pace or to ghost while immersed in water, to the point a single cut on the finger can take at least an hour to heal if immersed in water.

This one will need a SEVERE tweak. And I mean SEVERE really.

Custom Template Name: Kitsune
Description: Foxes that either develop supernatural abilities before or after dying will inevitably become a kitsune, a magical being capable of unaccountable transformations and illusions. Some even serve the Gods or act as local deities.
Availability: Anyone

Advantages:
+ 2x Human Strength, Durability or Speed (pick up to two)
+ Animal Connection or Beast Tongue
+ Animal Form (Fox)
+ Animal Senses (Fox)
+ Elemental Control (Type)
+ Graceful
+ Healthy Body
+ Induce Sin (Lust)
+ Magic Sense
+ Mental Immunity
+ Minor Illusion
+ Monster Form ((Multi-tailed) Fox)
+ Partial Shifting
+ Purification
+ Supernatural Beauty
+ Travel Home
= Longevity

Disadvantages:
- Anchor (Type)
- Debt Bound
- Holy Weakness or Profane Weakness (pick one)
- Imminent
- Magical Vulnerability
- Magically Dependent
- Pollution Sensitivity
- Restricted Diet (Fox and Tofu)
- True Name Weakness
- Under Orders (Gods)
- Ward (Type)
- Weak Spot (Tail(s))

Planned way to reduce this list: remove some of the common grounds with Gods, Angels and Demons
