ok i kinda got this off of another group but i think these are good ruels for any RPing group.

RPing What is this? Well...

By definition:

1. In roleplaying, participants adopt and act out the role of characters, or parts, that may have personalities, motivations, and backgrounds ...

2. Action in which a person takes on a role (as that of an actor) and pretends or acts out being that character.

3. Participating through using attitudes, stereotypes or given and predetermined points of view.

Role playing (or RPing) is, for all intents and purposes in this group, a story composed by two or more participants that assume the role of the character(s) that they portray in the story. There are a couple of different ways to write a role play story. Most often spoken dialogue is written plainly and action sequences are surrounded by asterisks. Sometimes the thoughts of a character may be surrounded by asterisks, italicized, underlined or all of the above. This is also known as “chat form”. Chat form is where the text is written as if speaking directly to the other character as you would in an IM session with a friend.

For example:

Naruto:*Turns the corner of the building and sees Jiraiya* Heeeeeeeeeey, pervy sage! You promised to teach me that new technique today!!!

A second form of writing a role play session is called “free form”. In this form text is written as it would be in a book. It is very descriptive, often longer to read and uses standard grammar and punctuation. Some people prefer this method of writing as opposed to chat because they can be more creative or poetic in their descriptions of actions and settings. For example:

Naruto: Feeling rather restless and annoyed because Jiraiya had disappeared on him once again, Naruto walked along the street thinking of what he could do to ease his tension. He turned the corner and spotted just the thing he needed to do so. “Heeeeeeeeeey, pervy sage! You promised to teach me that new technique today!!! " Naruto dashed after Jiraiya, intent on not letting him out of his sight until he received his lesson for the day.

For most role playing sites, and this group, either method of writing the text is acceptable. You may also notice that some role players will identify their character as in the above two examples and some may not. This is also acceptable to most sites and this group, though I do prefer characters to be identified.



Alright, "god-modding". What is it? Well, I'll tell you......

By definition:

1. Godmoding (often incorrectly spelled as "godmodding") is a term used in message board based role-playing games to describe two behaviors of players. The term comes from the "god mode" found in many video games, allowing a player to activate features such as invincibility, unlimited ammunition or lives, or similar power boosts. Godmoding is almost always frowned upon by other members of the game, because it is regarded as a form of cheating against the game's tactic rules.

Passive Godmoding:

Godmoding can occur when a player describes an event or a series of events his or her character has taken against another character or interactive object, most often with the purpose of rescinding negative effects previously encountered or granting some other effect inconsistent with an objective view of the narrative. This is sometimes also termed "Powermoding" or "Power-Lusting". For example, a character may be afflicted with a disease only curable by rare ingredients, yet another character is "lucky" enough to find these ingredients in ten minutes. Godmoding is thus often used like a "Get Out of Jail Free card" when things don't go the way a player wants, rather than working with previously unfolded events.

It is also used to describe the act of creating or playing with an invincible character or using "perfect" or "God-like" equipment (such as unbreakable armor), or possessing limitless power, etc. Some players will create a brand new character, and that character is automatically gifted with skills, and nearly impossible to take on right from the start. In many cases, this happens when a newer character goes against an established one: the newer player may roleplay his or her character as if it were equal in power and rank to the more experienced one.

Active Godmoding

Godmoding can also refer to the case where a player definitively describes the outcome of their own actions against another character or interactive object. For example, if player A states, "A strikes B and B takes damage", they could be considered to be godmoding. Another example of this might be where a character is facing multiple enemies, and they redirect one foe's attack onto another. For example, Player A states, "B misses A completely, and strikes C instead." This form of godmoding is also referred to as "Autoing". Active godmoding can also take the form of controlling characters that belong to someone else.

* Player A: Character A throws a punch at Character B.
* Player B: Character B dodges the attack, grabs Character A and throws him out of a stained glass window. Character A flies at Character B, who warps behind him and slashes Character A in the back.


Got it? Good! Now don't let me catch you god-modding!!! If I do, you will be warned. If you are caught continually doing it then the end result will be a kick from the group.

*Note* In my group it is acceptable to do what I call “light god-modding” . This is where one controls the outcome of an attack against an opponent and or controls the opponent‘s reaction to a small degree. The attack cannot be devastating, only minor, and it must be agreeable between both role players. If another RPer is not in agreement with your post, kindly edit it.

For example:

Enemy Ninja: *Throws and kunai with a paper bomb attached, then as it explodes sending the opponent across the field, he dashes through it intent on finishing him with his sword*

Shinobi: *Goes flying and quickly recovers by flipping in mid-air and sliding backwards on his feet several feet. Dashes in front of the enemy and slashes at him with his katana, causing him to be cut and bleeding down his chest*
