LIMITED EDITION ISSUES
At last, that moment you've all been waiting for! The limited edition issues are here. Before you jump on in, however, please read the following blurb so that you'll know what to expect, if you decide to create a character with one of these limited issues!Research:
Oh yes, you will need to research. Limited edition issues applications will be scrutinised more closely than regular applications. As you know, we normally do not allow some of these issues as a rule, so don't make us regret the decision to include them please. Be realistic, and be thorough. If in doubt, ask questions, read articles, watch documentaries on youtube! Apping:
When you post up an application for a limited edition issue, please mark somewhere at the top
of your app that that is what you are applying for, to help us out. Make sure your app is thorough and well thought out. Many of these issues are likely to have resulted in prior hospitalisations, so we'll want to know about those, and the sorts of medications they were or are on, etc etc. See point one.Reserving Limiteds:
As you can tell, these issues are extremely... well, limited. As such, we're going to include a code at the bottom here and you can reserve a limited issue while you work on the application.
If you reserve an issue, we would like to see the application up within 24 hours
at least. After 24 hours, your reservation expires. This is a first come first served set-up. You can see how many of each issue are left by glancing to the number next to the issue in question. This number will reflect reservations and
any applications that have gone up. In the case that we were not on the ball and didn't update the number when a reservation went up, make sure you check the rest of the thread
, to be sure! Any butthurt about failing to reserve and losing your spot, or reserving and then not posting the application in time will be met with a comedy pie to the face and a barrage of amusing, mocking gif images in the chat box.
- Paranoid Schizophrenia (1)
Paranoid schizophrenia is one of several types of schizophrenia, a chronic mental illness in which a person loses touch with reality (psychosis). The classic features of paranoid schizophrenia are having delusions and hearing things that aren't real. With paranoid schizophrenia, your ability to think and function in daily life may be better than with other types of schizophrenia. You may not have as many problems with memory, concentration or dulled emotions.
- Disorganized Schizophrenia (1)
Disorganized schizophrenia is one of several types of schizophrenia, a chronic mental illness in which a person loses touch with reality (psychosis). Disorganized schizophrenia is marked by thoughts, speech and behavior that are inappropriate and don't make sense. Disorganized schizophrenia is considered a more severe type of schizophrenia because people with this condition may be unable to carry out routine daily activities, such as bathing and meal preparation. It may be hard to understand what people with disorganized schizophrenia are saying. Also, frustration and agitation may cause them to lash out.
- Chronic Hallucinatory Psychosis (2)
Chronic hallucinatory disorder or chronic hallucinatory psychosis is a sub-type of psychosis. This disorder comes in the classification of “Other non-Organic Psychosis”. What makes this condition distinct from other mental illnesses is that other symptoms of psychosis are generally absent. Usually the patient is otherwise normal. People who suffer from chronic hallucinatory psychosis also don’t exhibit confusion and memory lapses that are usually seen in psychosis. Some people may exhibit positive signs of depression, paranoia and melancholia. This disease is primarily a disease of hallucinations.
Dissociative Identity Disorder (0)
Dissociative identity disorder (DID), also known as multiple personality disorder, is a mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states that alternately control a person's behavior, and is accompanied by memory impairment for important information not explained by ordinary forgetfulness. Identities may be unaware of each other and compartmentalize knowledge and memories, resulting in chaotic personal lives. The primary identity, which often has the patient's given name, tends to be "passive, dependent, guilty and depressed" with other personalities or "alters" being more active, aggressive or hostile, and often containing more complete memories. Most identities are of ordinary people, though fictional, mythical, celebrity and animal alters have also been reported.
- Depersonalization Disorder (1)
Depersonalization disorder (DPD) is a dissociative disorder in which the sufferer is affected by persistent or recurrent feelings of depersonalization and/or derealization. Common descriptions of symptoms are: feeling disconnected from one's physicality; feeling as though one is not completely occupying the body; not feeling in control of one's speech or physical movements; feeling detached from one's own thoughts or emotions; a sense of automation, going through the motions of life but not experiencing it or participating in it; loss of conviction with one's identity; feeling a disconnection from one's body; inability to accept one's reflection as one's own; difficulty relating oneself to reality and the environment; feeling as though one is in a dream; and out-of-body experiences'.
