If your character’s name is intangible, or their full name is a secret, you may post the name they go by. (This rule applies to some Demons, Shadow Creatures, and the Folk)
2. If you make a mistake, contact an Admin and we will have it changed.
3. Please use the appropriate application template and post in the “Pending Characters” Forum
3a. * For Supernatural characters or Magical Humans, remember that all of your abilities must have downfalls. For Magical Humans don't forget to add the abilities appendix to your application, which can be copy/pasted in the “Skills” sections of your app.
4. If you wish to create a cannon character, register with a name of your choice after reading the Cannons forum, then PM the [SS] Administration account for more information on your character before submitting your application.
5. Characters who are “Almost There,” “Not Quite,” “On Hold” or any other status that is not “ACCEPTED” or “DENIED” will have two weeks to make the necessary changes to their application barring extraordinary circumstances.Rating and Posting
1. This forum is rated R unless otherwise marked
. Adult content is allowed and even part of our plot, but please MARK if your forum is going to contain explicit sexual situations, drugs, violence, or extreme language. Because these situations include possible traumatic triggers, “Trigger Warning” is usually a sufficient, if not an excellent, tag.
This is an invisionfree forum, let’s keep everyone warned.
2. [SS] is accepting of all RP skill levels. We do not have a set post length.
We only expect something to reply to! That usually entails more than a paragraph, but it is quality over quantity. We only ask that there are NO ONE LINERS.
3.Speech should be placed in " " quotes, thoughts in italics.*
Memories/flashbacks are included as thoughts
4.Please post in the third person only.
5.Pregnancy, murder/death, and Changing (Into a Supernatural) are all parts of life and the game. If you wish for your character to experience one of these things, please PM an Admin for permission.
5a. We also believe in reincarnation here at [SS]. There are special rules for that. If your character dies and is to be reincarnated, you MUST PM an Admin for permission. The stipulations for reincarnated characters are as follows:
* They are to retain the same name and Face
* They are to have NO MEMORIES of their past life save for blurry visions and dreams
*They are to be human. No supernatural that dies can be reincarnated as that supernatural. Everyone is reincarnated as a human.
5b. Human pregnancies last nine months. That's nine months in real life. If you can't make the commitment, don't get your character pregnant.
6. Not everyone was abused as a child, not everyone has a mental illness, and not everyone is a stone cold murderer. We take these sorts of things seriously, please keep your character’s past in scope. These things do happen, but not to everyone. We will only accept characters with these tragedies if they are treated with the proper respect.
7. You may have as many characters as you wish and can control. Only one account per character please. Any characters that are found to be inactive will be put up for adoption. If the administration finds, when you apply for a new character, that you are neglecting your older characters, you will be put ‘On Hold’ for two weeks until you either decide to retire/kill the “neglected” character, or are on the road to bringing them back to an acceptable activity level.
8. Regular activity checks will be instated! If you fail to attend the Roll Calls, your characters will be put up for adoption. When an Activity check rolls around, you will be asked to post the names of all of the characters you wish to keep along with a link to their most recent thread
. If this thread is more than sixty days old, your character will be automatically retired barring extreme circumstances. Retired characters will be moved to a new user-group and can be reinstated at any time, you just have to discuss it with an admin.Housing
1. There is no housing application process on [SS]. We instead allow members to create their own housing for their characters. There are housing areas available.
2. When a thread comes up that takes place in a character's residence, simply post in the area that character lives in (such as the apartments) with the Topic Description of "[your character's name]'s home" or other indicator that the thread is taking place in someone's home. OoC and CBOX
1. Please be civil. No slurs in regards to racial, sexual, or gender affiliation will be tolerated AT ALL. If you are found making these sort of remarks, you will be BANNED from SS.
2. Please do not pester fellow players for posts in the C-Box. If two weeks has passed without a post in your thread, then it is perfectly acceptable to send your partner a message asking if the thread is going to continue or if it is going to die. Tagging during volleys is acceptable.
3. The CBOX is not a therapy session. While [SS] strives to be a supportive and loving community, and we want to know why you had a bad day and need to vent, it would be appreciated if whining was kept to a minimum.
4. Any complaints you have will be dealt with in a civil manner by the administration
.This means that we ask you to go through us when addressing a grievance with a fellow player that pertains to the site. Not only does this include OoC behavior (such as slurs or other inappropriate behavior in the C-Box), but also IC behavior such as activity level.Please feel free to PM us, IM us on Chatango, or email us if the need is great.
3. Chatspeak is allowed ONLY in the CBOX. Please don’t go overboard.
