Traditional Search

Search is search! If you’ve done it elsewhere, then you’ll find search a familiar and comfortable process. You apply OOCly, are searched on camera, interact with your fellow candidates and SearchCo, and stand at an on camera hatching where you may or may not impress a dragon written just for you!


Are you looking to write dragons rather than get a dragon this cycle? Check out [[igen-sco |our SearchCo page!]]

  • The character must be unwed.

    • Only male characters may ride bronze dragons
    • No character may ever Impress a white dragon

Players are also prohibited from insta-ing a dragon during the search period.

Candidacy Options

There are three different ways to get involved in OOCsearch at Igen Weyr! Each has their own chances for character development and interest levels.

Standard Candidate Application
A standard candidate is in for the long haul. Apply during OOC search, on camera search by SearchCo, requirement to fill out a candidate questionnaire, and a chance at impressing a dragon with a SearchCo written Inspiration.

Stand Only Candidate Application
This candidate has all the perks of being a standard candidate, but without receiving a dragon at the end. All the character development of search without impression.

Once all PC candidates are searched, Insta applications are opened. These candidates are eligible to impress a dragon during the hatching, however, they do not receive a staff written dragon. Instead, they are expected to give SearchCo the basics of their dragon when applying to code onto the PC eggs.

A few notes before the questions!
A) Before submitting this application you should have read through and understood the information on our [[igen-search|Search at Igen Weyr]] page as it relates to candidacy, as the Infopak below.

B) You have read, understand, and are willing to comply to both the [[policy|Game Wide Policies]], Igen’s policies regarding [[igen-behavior| area behavior]], and Igen’s [[igen-theme|theme]] information.

C) Take your time with your app! We suggest copying the answers over onto another document and then copy+pasting them into the form to submit. Be as clear as possible. We ask quite a few questions about your dragon, and unless you change your mind completely in your candidate Q, we’ll use this information to write your dragon!

D) Please don’t be afraid to be honest with us! We want to know what you really feel, not be told whatever you think it is we want to hear. This application is our pipeline to you! We want to know who you are and what makes your character tick. The more information you give us, the more we’re able to work for your benefit. There’s a place for Politically Correct, but these applications aren’t it! SearchCo is held to strict confidentiality and what you write stays with us.

E) Are you from Igen? Awesome, forward ho! But if you’re joining us from Southern please drop a courtesy line to *sws letting them know about your intention to move.

F) DEADLINE: Standard applications are due no later than * * at 12:00 AM MST. After this deadline no more standard or stand only applications will be accepted.
