-Please keep Private topics to a minimum, we want to keep the site an Open RP forum, meaning that you should be roleplaying with many people, instead of the same two or three over and over.

-If there is an announcement in the Topic Forum about rules or limits, please read it over before posting your application.

Important Terms

-RP - Role Play. (Bet you couldn't have guessed that one!)

-OOC - Out Of Character. Anything that is apart from the action taking place within the story or with the characters.

-IC : In Character. Anything done through a character's voice or actions, through the narrative, etc.

-((...)) or {...} - OOC bubbles. Used in the middle of a role play session to keep ooc discussion from being mixed with ic writing.

-GODMODDING – Playing God – for example being immune to all types of influence, injury, issues, or being almighty above everything and everyone. People who did this are referred to as godmodders, god-moderators or gmers. (This is action is not proper role-play etiquette, and is a punishable act. This is a a major don’t in the world of role-players.)
-METAGAMING - Using OOC commentary or reading tags and using the information in your RP without having discovered it IC. Be logical with the info you give your character, this also means them randomly knowing where objects that magically appear are. (once again this is not proper etiquette and is punishable.)
- NPC - Also known as Non-Player Character. Commonly used to serve as assault teams or temporary characters in sim-wide role play. NPCs usually will arrive to attack everyone in the sim giving players a chance to unite with each other to defeat the threat.
-Power Playing – Powerplaying, other wise referred to as power modding or god modding, is when someone plays as a character that someone else is playing, without the other players permission. Other less common variations of this is killing other members without their permission, and blackmail. Due to this, We do not allow powerplaying of any sort.
-Liquid posting- posting in more than one topic at a time, you can only hold 2 topics at a time on this site.
