Hi! I'm Coltara, but most call me Tar. I'm a narrative-driven roleplayer with an extensive history and an interest in writing with other experienced writers. I enjoy roleplay with engaging plot, strict continuity, and lots of character development over time.

I have a lot of character profiles in hiding that are outdated, in-progress, or retired! Those you see are the those currently active and/or with more complete information.

Roleplay Preferences
Favorite Genres:
fantasy (high, historical, dark, sword and sorcery), sci-fi (soft, space opera, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, retrofuturism), science fantasy, horror, action, adventure, mysteries, thrillers, suspense

I don't roleplay outside of continuity. I like my characters to have solid frames of reference and strict timelines! I'm terribly neurotic about details.

I primarily join settings based out of Furcadia.

I prefer to play with those 18+ and in general closer to my age group. This does not apply to characters - children are vital figures in any setting!

I can be exceptionally slow. I'm an overthinker plagued by frequent creative blocks. I don't do so well in live scenes anymore and will struggle to keep up with events. I'm growing to prefer casual paced scenes on Discord and playing with those who have patience for my inability to stay focused or maintain creative confidence.

I'm a big fan of "let's say it happened" and a lot of communication between players. I don't believe everything needs to be written out and sometimes prefer to discuss or elude to more casual interactions between characters (especially if they're likely to see one another on a frequent basis).

I am happy to write romance when it develops organically, but it's not something I go looking for. I don't dislike it per se, but I do prefer it in sparing and realistic doses. I prefer slow burn relationships that grow from a genuine chemistry between characters.

When it comes to character intimacy, I generally prefer fade to black.

All Original Content Please

I would rather not play with characters based on 'faceclaims' and especially not those with 'borrowed' art e.g. profiles that prominently rely on borrowing the appearance and images of a real person or already existing character design.

I prefer OC. While I very much enjoy playing in functional 'sandbox' worlds like Pokemon or Fallout with fandom based characters, I am not comfortable playing with or as actual figures from canon (outside of using them sparingly as NPC). I'm also not comfortable playing with canon based characters outside of their given canon.

The vast majority of the artwork you see displayed in my character galleries was either commissioned by or gifted to me. They are not to be used by anyone other than myself or their respective artists.

Rave Reviews

Maxie (played by Tar)
Maxie (and his meticulous player) has drawn out both the worst - and a surprising best - from a character of mine that isn't known for such true extremes, and it's made for some of the meatiest and most rewarding RP I've had in a long time.

And no wonder - for Maxie is a well conceived and written person with a full, thoroughly researched and developed past - and this richness is evident in everything he does. It's been just as fun to read about his adventures as it has been to play with him! - Rigby

What can I say about this fantastic lady? Easy: lots of stuff! She's been a very good friend of mine for a few years now; well-spoken and very thought-provoking when it comes to deep conversations, she's also very good at just writing well-rounded characters and having fun just nerding about things like Pokemon or Batman! <3 In other words, Coltara's fun and awesome! - Copper_Dragon

See all of Tar's kudos »

Inquiring minds want to know why we too should befriend Tar!

Did you remember to explain why your friend is awesome?
