Rules

These rules are here to keep everyone happy, and are fair and pretty commonplace. If you have questions or concerns, please PM Senaru, or Thalron if you need an admin, if you need a mod, PM Isra or Jackins.

  • 1. Before you begin, please make an account. We would prefer you use full words and not random chat-speak(Preferably a single word nickname), which can be distracting. This means no numbers(unless you must), symbols, or crude words (One account per person, all characters are attached to a single account which does not need to be the characters name! Your account should just be your nickname or whatever you like to be called if you wish). Also be advised this is a mature and literate RP forum. Members of 16 and older are welcome.

    2. When making your character, please follow the guidelines carefully. If you want a unique character, or one that differs from the usual, feel free to ask the admins and mods! We're pretty open minded here. We only ask that you keep the accepting list of elements and races and so on and such in mind- if we've listed an element as off limits at the time, we mean it.

    3. We do not tolerate character-copying or thievery, so please do not copy someone elses character's! Also do not use images not drawn by you or without permission from the artist. (If someone drew it for YOU or you paid for it drawn, you can, otherwise don't)

    4. Respect your fellow role players. Please, no excessive cursing* (A little is okay, but we will let you know if we see too much- If the character itself IS a salty sailor you can run it by admins, but no slurs are allowed), threatening, 'stalking', irritating, or harassing them! If you do, your IP will be banned. We have the right to refuse a member access to this site in the event of an applicant joining whom has gained a bad reputation elsewhere to protect our members.

    5. This is a literate RP, please make literate posts. This includes proper grammar. We're not going to go after you if you typo, but we like to see decent sized posts. That means maybe three paragraphs at /least/*In some cases, Post-Jam sessions may be one to two paragraphs, this moves the story faster and lets you post more.* We don't want to see you puppeting someone else's character's either, which is ultimately frustrating.

    6. If a board is labeled as private and you are not the party listed on it, do not join. If you wish to be included, PM/Cbox the topic starter to ask.

    7. Stay within imaginable aspects when roleplaying. Crack-randomness is not acceptable here. Neither is power playing, (Except for mods and admin or upon special permission when using a PLOT related powerful being) Power-playing/Godmodding includes stating you DID do something to someones character, such as wounding them terribly, or killing them outright, or doing something silly like splitting the world in two. You get the idea. Unless a battle/wounding or killing is planned with your RP partner, do not assume you've struck them. Give them the option of dodging it somehow, even if the outcome is unlikely! no one likes a power hog.

    8. Keep intimate or overly gore related stuff in the mature board. Likewise, you must be 18 to join those boards, please do not lie about your age.

    9 We do not tolerate bad-mouthing the admin and mods. If you have a legitimate issue, please PM a mod or admin who isnt them and talk to us about it. Don't go spreading rumor-mills behind our backs, because chances are, we'll find out eventually. Likewise, this goes for other members too. If you wanna talk to someone privately, that's your own business- please don't flame them on your facebook, journals, or other public places. We like keeping things civil!

    10. If you wish to kill another character, please discuss it with said character's roleplayer. No one likes to see a character die, even if it does happen in battle and war. Keep in mind how long and how much thought went into these characters before trying to kill them! However, beating a character to near death and having them survive is acceptable- as long as you ask the player first. Also, there is a second chance for dead characters- we won't always honor it, but once in a while an Omni might feel pity for a dead person and allow them to go back. This appeal can be made by the person who owns the character, or someone who would like to adopt the character- provided they have permission. If the original owner no longer is on the site, you don't need their permission.

    11. If you wish for your character's to breed with another in a closed flight, please PM an the owner of the other dragon/creature for approval.

    12. If you become inactive for more than a month without giving one of the admins notice, your characters will be moved to the Inactive Profiles section. Site made characters will be put up for adoption* (IE admin made hatchlings, characters you've made up are just put in the inactive thread or deleted if you leave for good. In addition, site/admin made bonded creatures including but not limited to dragons and contest prizes that have not been played whatsoever after many months while others are played (IE some completely ignored) Those will be removed and put up for adoption or otherwise given to another user. This may include as a contest prize or a USD shop item if the dragon's art was done by an admin. TLDR: we will NOT give away characters that you the user have made, only those that this site has made in bonding situations. If abandoned, they go to someone else end of story. *This remains the same if you have quit. If you have left the forum due to inactivity or formally quitting, admin/site made dragons etc will be placed up for adoption.

    13. No fighting in the OOC board. Discuss things in a civil matter if you are having problems with an RP or a player, we don't want accusations flying around. If you have problems with someone, and you cannot settle the trouble, please contact an Admin or a moderator.

    14. You must have fun at all times. Failure to do so will result in someone trying to make you happy! We're warning you, we can be pretty damn fun at times.

    15. You should also watch this Word Crimes

Character Creation Rules


Note from the Admin: Please do not try to make your character topic in the provided categories! make the new topic directly within the compendium. Once reviewed by a mod/admin, we'll move it into its category if it is accepted.

----------------------

  • 1. follow the guidelines of races/dragons and listen to us if we require a change to be made. Do not alter the order of the profile, or do weird coding to it, such as alternating large areas of color or moving sections around. Just fill out the templates as asked. You MAY add pictures if you drew them, or paid for the artwork. (We have a face claim thread too.)

    You may also post images of crystals and such as references for stone. However aside from pictures or making text into a link, please leave the main profile template clean. Large pics of face claimed IRL photos should not be at the top of the profile! Simply use this code and link it in the appearance.
Code:
 
[url=LINKHERE] Face claim [/URL]


  • 2. If you wish to have a character that possesses some unique trait, you must first approve it with the admins.

    3. Do not create a character you will never use.

    4. Try to stay active with the characters you have, please.

    5. Do not allow In Context feuds to cross over to Out of Context. RP is RP, not directed at you. If you feel that someone is RPing purposefully to jab at YOU please let a mod know. We'll look into it!

    6. If a certain dragon, type of pet, or rank is not listed as available, please do not create one. This will result in a Declined application. Any real world animals you wish to have as a pet should follow real world situations for owning one- you can't walk around with a tiger on a leash all day unless there was magic involved- if you want something like that, you can ask about it!

    7. Do not create more characters than you have slots for. A pair of characters, IE a Rider and their Dragon is ONE character slot.

    8. Update your characters as often as possible! The more you play them, the more history they'll have- any battle scars or current wound status would be things you'd update with. * Do not edit special abilities or edit out text from an admin-given dragon, such as from a hatching or event. You can of course, edit on scars or things. If you wish to add onto the character, ask an admin about it!

    9. Make sure to post details about a character in their bio. When writing the profile out, write in paragraph form not list form. Listing abilities, appearance traits, personality traits and history traits in vertical listing will not be allowed. Some have gotten through but they will no longer be allowed. Writing out the full abilities/appearance/personality/history in full sentences is required.

    10. Having a massive amount of writing for a description isn't required, though at least a couple paragraphs would be nice for appearance and personality, maybe a few for history. If you DO make a huge bio, we might be more lenient towards any oddities or possibly be convinced that you deserve a rare breed.

    11. As we are a 17+ age group, we expect good grammar in profiles. If it gives us a headache trying to read it, it will not be accepted. You must know how to use their/there/they're, 'a lot' is two words, not 'alot', to and too correctly, and other such common words. Proper sentence structure/punctuation expected. Due to repeated incidents of unreadable profiles, we have had to get a bit more strict about this. We will help you out if there are a few little ones, that's always fine, but if the /entire/ profile is set up that way you may not be able to RP with the rest of us very well. Remember, we are a LITERATE RP BOARD. (Starting every sentence with 'he' or 'she' is also annoying)

    12. Have fun roleplaying. Yes. This is a rule.
