You may curse, but please don't overdo it.
Rudeness and hostility will not be tolerated. Follow the Golden Rule—treat others as you would want to be treated.
Calling somebody out on their religion, sexuality, nationality, race, or gender will earn you a permanent ban. It is okay to discuss and/or give your opinion respectfully on these topics, but insulting people because you do not like the way they chose to live their life is not.
I will ask for moderators when I need them. Do not ask to be one or you will not be considered.
Do not spam or troll. Also, try to stay on-topic when you post in a thread.
You agree that if you don't actually read these rules, you may be pelted with moldy cheese at any moment.3/31/2012 . Edited 10/22/2012 #1 Report
No lemons. Please.
Do not create a Mary Sue. Mary Sues are RP characters that are constantly bringing the spotlight to themselves, pwn everybody in anything they do, have a tragic past, are oh-so-beautiful, and have the good grace to die in the end. If you aren't sure if the character your created is a Mary Sue or not, try taking the Mary Sue Litmus Test. http://www.springhole.net/writing/marysue.htm
Do not take control of or kill other people's characters. This is known as power-playing and is generally frowned upon. The only exception is when the creator of the character gives full permission for somebody else to use/kill his or her character.*
Do not god-mod. This is when you make your character untouchable and extremely powerful. If you are in a fight, you must get hit at some point.
Please keep all discussion not related to the roleplay in the chat thread.
Any roleplays of any fandom—or original with no fandom at all—are allowed, but this is mainly a Spyro forum. Try not to come up with too many non-Spyro ideas.
I'm not asking for flawless grammar, but if your post's spelling and grammar isn't above elementary school level, it will be ignored. In other words, at least make an attempt to use correct spelling and grammar. Do not use chatspeak.
*If a roleplayer disappears with no warning and is gone for a long time, or if he leaves the RP without tying up loose ends on his own, other roleplayers may take control of the character. If nobody wants to permanently control this character, he can be made to disappear and officially leave the RP somehow (for example a character could want to leave the group to go home, tired of the fighting). If he would have no reason to leave, he can be killed instead.** This is the only exception to the rule.
**If a roleplayer comes back and his character is dead with no chance of him being alive or the reason for his disappearance is non-reversible, the roleplay may be taken back to a previous point if all the players agree upon it. If not, the decision is final the roleplayer will have to make a new character to continue playing.
Examples for above: It is possible for a person to be observed as dead but simply be unconscious; if he was left in the place where he "died" then it is possible for the roleplayer to bring his character back to the roleplay and find his way back to the group. On the other hand, a character who had his head chopped off and placed on a pointy stick has no chance of being alive and the character cannot come back without the roleplay being reversed to a previous point.
A reason to leave that can be reversible is in the example above; if a character decides to go home, he could just change his mind and come back. However, a reason to leave that would not be reversible is the character being detained by the bad guys (in, say, a heavily fortified jail that you could only escape Shawshank Redemption style, which took about twenty years to pull off) until said bad guys are defeated which would presumably take place at the end of the roleplay.3/31/2012 .
