PostSubject: Roleplay Rules   December 26th 2014, 2:15 am

1.) No harassment is allowed here on the site, period. If you are caught harassing another member, you will receive 50 infraction points, resulting in a one day ban. The next incident will be another 50 points and a week long ban. A third incident will result in a permanent ban.

2.) Godmodding and Bunnying are not allowed. Any action of Godmodding will result in an investigation and action by the Staff.
Godmodding wrote:
like the common cheat code, "God Mode," godmodding is where a character has impossible limitations, or rather, a lack of limitations altogether. Nothing seems to damage them and they can do seemingly anything they want, whether it makes any sort of sense or otherwise. These characters are often invincible.
Bunnying wrote:
taking control of characters other than your own in order to make the storyline go the way you want it to.

3.) To kill a player character, you must first be in a fight/situation where the death could occur, and you must have a staff member review it.

  • From here on out, all Kishin Egg/Kishin/evil-aligned characters that start a fight within the Death City limits have hereby forfeited the right to be reviewed for no-kill's. To put things simply: if you put your character in Death City, they are evil, and they start a fight, staff approval is no longer needed to confirm their death. 5/12/2016

4.) One hit kills are not allowed, and you may not have abilities that allow such.

5.) Please rate your threads based on the content you intend for them to have or any content that develops in them. We will be using the ESRB ratings E, T, and M, along with suffix letters to explain why.

Example: You have a mature thread with language, gore, and explicit content. You would title it

Title Name, Private/Open, M-LGEc

6.) All members should keep track of their threads and make sure that nothing effects the timeline. (Example: Sam is kidnapped in one thread, but continues to act like nothing happened in the second thread.)

7.) All threads are requested to have a timestamp in the following format.

Month and Day
00:00 AM/PM
Time after any significant event related to thread (I.E: 2 months after X)

8.) Beginning on January 1st, 2015, we will be following a semi standard flow of time. Unless otherwise stated, the date a thread begins on will be it's starting date. Time will then flow as detailed in the thread. We will follow the months of the year as best as possible.

9.) To keep timelines clean, all threads happen in the order they were formed, unless SPECIFICALLY STATED as happening before/after another thread.

10.) Threads must be labeled as 'Private: user and user,' 'Invite/Permission Only' (or Request), Closed (when the max number of users desired are present) or 'Open (to all).'

11.) Please add the tag (Finished) on any and all finished threads.

12.)If you are absent for a long period of time and return and are unable to find your thread, please look in the Thread Archives section. If you find it, please ask a Staff Member to retrieve it for you.

13.) No timeskips over 1 week without Administrator Approval.

14.) In a situation where the number of souls a weapon, kishin, or other soul eating entity is in dispute or not clearly stated, Staff help is required. A staff member will decide based on the situation how many souls are best to be consumed.

15.) Soul Worlds (I.E Soul's Black Room) are acceptable locations to RP, and if you choose to include them please describe them under the Misc section on your character application.

16.) (Added 8/22/2016) If someone creates a thread and does NOT want there to be any of a certain content (violence/fighting or what-have-you) and someone goes against their wishes, Staff is allowed to intervene. This means, in the most specific and targeted of forms, that anyone aiming for, say, a "slice of life" thread has the right to keep their thread as such. If another user comes in and decides that they want a fight, but the creator does not, staff may intervene and diffuse the situation, in-character or otherwise.

Update as of 8/22/2016:
-Thread ratings system has been updated to a hybrid of MPAA (Film) and ESRB (Game) ratings, as follows.
-Users are expected to include a rating in the title of their thread; if no rating is listed, it is expected to be either E/G or PG/E10+. If the thread does not comply to these rules, the thread will be put on hold until the users involved comply.
-Threads may start out with the prefered rating listed in the title, but should post in the introductory message whether or not it is subject to change (which is perfectly fine!). If the rating is supposed to remain as is (let's say T for Teen), but one of the participants posts M or A content, the creator has the right to kick the user out of the thread and contact staff for disciplinary measures.
-Ratings MAY change over time; a thread could start out with the intention of remaining safe for all audiences, but later become T or higher. That is fine. However, if there is any T+ content in the thread, the rating may NOT downgrade below the suitable rating.

Ratings System

E/G: Everyone/Guidance, respectively, this is actually an unnecessary/assumed tag. Threads that would hold this rating are suitable for all audiences. There is no inappropriate content in the thread (including foul language), and violence is at most suggested/referenced vaguely.

PG/E10+: Parental Guidance/Everyone ten and up, these threads may contain slight language (occasional cursing, and basically only less "severe" forms of such), as well as fight scenes. Suitable for our current userbase, this only has to be posted if there's cursing involved.

T: Teen! Things such as mild violence, language, crude humor, gambling, and sexual references may be found in these threads. This rating is where they state being required.

M: Only users 16+ may participate or read these topics, as it involves more than mere references to things such as gambling (casino level, not arcade), sex, and graphic violence.

A: Adults only. It is the preference that users below 18 are not to be found in these threads. However, if it is agreed by staff that the member in question is deemed to be of a mature enough mindset for adult-targeted themes they are the exception. If you are NOT deemed to be under this exception and are found in the thread, posting or otherwise, you will be infracted  by 15 points, to be increased every time you are caught.

P: Pending threads mean that the users are not quite sure where the thread may take them. Open threads are likely to start out as such, especially if there are power heavy characters involved. By the end of second page, this rating is expected to be changed.

Additional, Optional Tag Ratings
-With the exceptions of comic mischief, crude humor, and references, the following additional/detail ratings are for T and up. Comic mischief and crude humor may be used, in mild degrees, in PG threads; quick references may be used in any thread, as long as extreme detail is not given.
-These tags are for simple use as quick, literal Trigger Warnings, for users that may be sensitive to these topics. Please, be respectful to one another.

Blood and Gore - Depictions of blood or the mutilation of body parts
Comic Mischief - Depictions or dialogue involving slapstick or suggestive humor
Crude Humor - Depictions or dialogue involving vulgar antics, including "bathroom" humor
Drug Reference/Usage - References/usage to/or drugs to include alcohol, tobacco, and other substances
Intense Violence - Graphic and realistic-looking depictions of physical conflict. May involve extreme and/or realistic blood, gore, weapons and depictions of human injury and death
Language - Mild to moderate use of profanity
Mature Humor - Depictions or dialogue involving "adult" humor, including sexual references
Real Gambling - Player can gamble, including betting or wagering real cash or currency
Sexual Content - Non-explicit depictions of sexual behavior, possibly including partial nudity
Sexual Themes - References to sex/sexual acts
Sexual Violence - Depictions of rape or other violent sexual acts
Strong Language - Explicit and/or frequent use of profanity
Strong Sexual Content - Explicit and/or frequent depictions of sexual behavior, possibly including nudity
Suggestive Themes - Mild provocative references or materials
Tobacco Reference - Reference to and/or images of tobacco products
Violence - Scenes involving aggressive conflict. May contain bloodless dismemberment
Violent References - References to violent acts
