RULES

✖ warning system
• A three strike warning system has been implemented to deal with any serious breaches of the rules. Players have two strikes, then on the third, they are out. Small infractions will receive warnings, but any major rule breaking, including the rules on etiquette, is subject to this system.

✖ livejournal TOS
• LIVEJOURNAL TOS: Live Journal's Terms of Service, written out here, are absolute and must be followed.

✖ ic/ooc
• THE GOLDEN RULE: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." When communicating in an OOC fashion, please remember to treat people as you would like to be treated. We understand that some characters are not inclined to behave this way IC, but it's important that the OOC distinction be made.
• METAGAMING: There is a distinction between what a player knows and what their character knows. If a character comes to a conclusion, the clues and hints must be there in the game and the conclusion must be reached ICly.
• THE ICA=ICC RULE: In Character actions have In Character consequences. What this means, just as an example, is if you decide to enter Xanadu covered in human skulls and eating a baby, prepare to be reviled, shunned, and possibly have other player characters trying to end your baby munchin' ways. The flip side of this, of course, is that only YOU have the final say in what happens to your character. If somebody threatens to kill, maim, or otherwise permanently alter your character, you have every right to say "No." We encourage Out Of Character notes as often as you feel them necessary to clarify what's going on. Communication is key.
• STORYLINES: We are accepting of almost any kinds of storylines (no paedophilia, necrophilia, or bestiality); however, we believe that if you are going to pursue a storyline, you research it properly. That means pregnancies, drug problems, anything heavy, etc. ought to be realistic.
• PLAYED BY: Do your best to keep your PBs age/race appropriate. If you can't find one, here is a list of excellent places to look: PB Updates (some race tags may be inaccurate; be sure to wiki and double-check!), Wikicon.

✖ general good advice
• Don't troll.
• Don't bring the wank.
• Keep spoilers labeled.
• Rules will periodically be reviewed and updated. We will make announcements regarding any changes in the OOC community.
