Hi Calaboogey,

and welcome to Santharia. CDs vary widely in length, depending on the writing style of the author. Have a look at some of the CDs in the Character Archives for examples. In general, as long as you address all the essential points mentioned in the Character Creation Guide, you'll be fine.

Two random examples of short CDs that got approved very quickly: Cordelia, Pitti.

For an example of an overlong CD, check the link in my signature.  Roll Eyes

Good luck with your character creation!

Alright, thank you, I have just been creating my CD and it's already fairly lengthy  grin, But thanks again for getting back to me and I will definitely check out those examples!

Just some quick advice :) Length is not as important as having all the necessary and correct information within your CD. Yes, some may be longer than others, but that doesn't mean they are better than the other.

:) Good luck with your writing!
