Notes on Using the Character Dossier
Note that tickets are ONLY available to ACTIVE players (Someone who has logged in at least once per week in a calendar month and RPed in open RP.). Tickets handed in by INACTIVE players will be rejected.
Sheet Change and Equipment tickets should specify where the changes should be made on the sheet in the ticket and players should put the changes in a copy and paste format so that STs are clear what is to go on the sheet where when processing tickets.
