RPA Rules obviously apply here so don't question that.
Discussion threads are the only threads meant for chatting. Keep that in mind and don't bother with posting in the Information center as that is currently OFF LIMITS... except for the Q&A thread...
Heavy arguing will give you a warning. Continue with it and you will be kicked from this RP. If you have a confrontation with another member, take it to PMing. Also, those aiding in the argument will also receive a warning for following through with the argument, not just the starter will be in trouble.
No editing critical posts that may contain dice or depend upon combat/working on objectives. If I smell something fishy, I will have a mod read your edited post to see what changes you made. Yes, they can do that so don't question it. If you are caught with tampering as such, you will be kicked from this RP. No warning will be given. OH and don't type in a fake dice code. If I quote your post, and it doesn't say [roll]0 then you are busted for forging a dice roll.
I am Big Boss and what I say is final. Though I do allow everyone to put in their opinion, there will be times where I, the GM, will make the decision. I do promise it will be beneficial to all in some degree. Also, if I see unfairness in the IC, the person(s) causing it will be in trouble...
Be legible or have whatever you wrote become nihil. In the IC, be clear as to what your actions are. If you attack someone, then write who and with what in the OOC so we all know, and do the same in the IC.
Images and links are allowed in the IC so long as they don't clutter your post. Only one image(Gif, Jpeg, whatev) per post. This must either aid in a visual example of your character attacking/ using an ability OR just for the atmosphere. Though each mission will already have a pre-set look to follow. Links to songs are fine. Use the URL code and NOT a youtube code.
Foul language is allowed to a certain extent in the IC and OOC. Please, no racist terms of any kind or anything to demean cultures or homosexuality. Fuck, Ass, Shit, and Bitch are the only ones any of us should use and no I'm not forgetting anymore as those are the four I only want to see. Don't push it as this isn't the place to try. However, this isn't the place to spam 'Ass' for whatever reason in your IC post. If it seems childish to have in your post, don't use it. They are merely 'sentence enhancers' at times when appropriate.
Switching sides in the IC is permitted but if one team begins to complain(single member or all) about you switching too much, you will be locked with the opposite team that complained or another if more teams are allowed. Some members will start off as neutral for the sake of side missions. These members are specially chosen.
Secrecy in planning is allowed and a good way to surprise the enemy and better your chances at winning. There are no password-safe threads for you so you must PM your comrades on what to do. You will have time before a chapter begins to plan things out.
Controlling others is only allowed if both members or more agree to it in the OOC. If not, then you must edit your post. Remember, just because you managed to wound a member doesn't mean you can throw them around the place like a sack of potatoes.
KO = KO only so don't say you killed another member. Yes, you may have shot them several times and wounded them with a heavy weapon but thanks to the omnipotent Admins trying to protect everyone, all that happens is the character is knocked out from all the damage ie they passed out from blood loss but will quickly recover in the next turn thanks to magic.
No cutting as your turn will come in the chapter. You must wait for the appropriate person to post before you continue. This way it is fair for everyone to get a post in. Also, I may use Turn and Phase interchangeably. Turn relates to everyone's chance at posting within a single phase. So like a board game, everyone must wait their turn. Once everyone has gone, the next phase/turn begins and everyone can go once again and so on.
This RP requires your attention. Though seeing as the OOC will inform you of what is going on, you are required to post when it is your turn within...uhm four days unless otherwise notified. If you do not post within that time, you will be skipped(not kicked). Please inform me if you are having computer issues or going on vacation as I will take control of your character and do only as you wish.
YOU CAN NOT RESET YOUR STATS at any time! What you put for your attributes, weapons, abilities are now set in stone! A future inventory item will be available for purchase that can reset your stats, allowing you to place your points wherever you want. Until then, NO TOUCHY
