read em', love em', obey em'
We don't have a lot of rules on here guys, so please read them.
OUT OF CHARACTER1.
Most important rule of them all. Respect your fellow role players. On and off site bashing, is not permitted. If you don't like someone, don't talk to them. Problem solved.2.
I hate chatbox rules. I feel like they should be pretty obvious. Don't spam it with "WHY WON'T SOMEONE PLAY WITH ME" or "LOOK I'VE GOT AN OPEN THREAD", keep it pg-13, and if you want to carry on a personal conversation please do so in a private room. Other than that, keep it fun.
IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE SITE CONTENT PLEASE TELL A.J., do not yell about it in the chat box. 3.
This site is pg-13. This isn't our rule, this is Invision Free's. We allow things like violence, sex, and drugs, but please use it with your best discretion. If you are going to have mature content, please keep it decent, and mark it as such. 4.
If it's in the book, but not on the site, we've omitted it from this cross universe. I took a few liberties and changed a few things, simply because it was how I wanted to see the site. Please don't go to the admin and beg for a wereleapord, or a half breed vampire-werewolf, or for an animator as powerful as Anita Blake.. If it's not here, but in the books, we're not acknowledging it for this story. This also goes for it is here, and not in the books, it's what I wanted to see on a site. If you'd like to find a more Anita Blake/Mercy Thompson site, check with our affiliates.5.
Post in the activity board if you're going away for more than 3 days. This is just so we can keep track of active/non active members during activity check time. 6.
You can have five characters, no questions asked. If you'd like more than five, please contact any of the admin. If you're active enough, we'll say yes to more characters. Remember, you have to be active with all of them <37.
No word count, but remember, you get what you put into it.8.
If someone hasn't replied to your thread in a couple days, please don't spam them with "OH MY GOSH! WHY HAVEN'T YOU REPLIED!!", especially in the chat box.9.
One of the biggest pet peeves the admin here have is sucking the fun out of role playing by causing drama. Just don't do it. We're all adults (or close to it), we should all be able to get along and handle our problems peacefully without blowing it out of proportion. If you have an issue, talk about it with an admin. Remember, it's JUST role playing. It's not a life or death situation. Just have fun! 10.
If there is a ban on certain species, genders, sexuality, or specific jobs, please do not come begging to the admin to lift it. We put bans in place in order to balance out the site. Once we get more of other things that aren't banned, we'll lift it. Please be patient until then.11.
You don't have to be an English wiz, nor does English have to be your first language, but there needs to be some concept of grammar/literacy. If you know you have a hard time with spelling/the English language, please take the five seconds to run your app/posts through a spell/grammar check. Mistakes will be made, and that's fine. It's if there's a problem every paragraph, or even every sentence. 12.
Do not harass other members, on or off site. We are not forcing all of you to get along, but if you don't like someone, or something about their character, then don't talk to them. Plain and simple. If a member is found to be telling other members how to write for their character, when to post, picking on them in anyway shape or form to where they are feeling overwhelmed or cornered, they will receive one warning. After that, you will be banned for one week. If you choose to come back to the site after said week, and it continues, character accounts will be deleted (not put to inactive, but actually deleted), and email accounts will be banned.
IN CHARACTER RULES!1.
Please check the species page to see who your character answers to. Their word is law, so you must obey them. No if ands or butts. (unless the player of the leader of your species is god-playing. If that's the case, please contact an admin.)2.
There are certain areas your character is not permitted to go (of course, that's how the best drama is created >3).3.
Each species has their own rules and regulations. Please read all things pertaining to your character in order to keep things flowing correctly. (I know there's a lot for certain species, just please humor us)4.
Canon NPCs are played by admin, more to straighten out rule breakers. They really only interviene in order to clean up messes that might occur on the site. Please look at our NPC page to learn more. 5.
IF YOU ARE A ROGUE ANYTHING PAY ATTENTION!!! Just because your character is a rouge does NOT mean that they're all powerful monsters of death and destruction. There are consequences for every action and slaughtering half the town will get you in a boat load of trouble. Please keep this in mind when creating a rouge. 6.
Do not steal characters. This doesn't just mean from other members, but from tv shows, books, and movies. We don't want to see a thousand Selines running around, or twenty Winchester boys. Borrowing ideas from other people is fine (we all like to play our fandom's canons), and getting inspired from these great characters is great, but word for word, wikipedia copy and pasted text is not allowed.7.
You do not HAVE to have a play by (although we do prefer it), but if you choose to, it must be a real life play by. That means no anime. You may use models, singers, actors, or images from sites like Deviant Art (so long as you give credit to the person's face it belongs to), but please do not use your own face. That gets a little creepy 8.
Register with your character's first and last name, with the correct capitalization, when applying for a character. All screen names will be deleted once a week. 9.
When it comes to your character's age, please keep vampires under 600 years old, werewolves under 175 (we do NOT want to see freaky old werewolves. please read their species info as to why), and fae need to be older than 50 and no older than 300. Walkers, witches, humans and animators all have a normal human life span, so keep that in mind also. 10.
And lastly. No Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters. Just...no.
