Post Reply Role Playing Rules and Regulations
Posted 6/14/15 , edited 6/14/15
Hi All!
The purpose of Role Playing is to have fun, be relaxed and have a great time with others ^^ While Crunchyroll's rules of 'PG-13' Rating is pretty broad, for sake of clarity we'll go into a little depth here. Any question, please refer to this thread ^^ These rules have to be followed. No exceptions.

1. Swearing:
Come on, loves...keep it mild. We don't mind a few swear words (for the most part, we say them in our daily lives anyway XD ). Just don't go flippantly using the F-word everywhere; and preferably stay away from that too. Mild means: Hell, damn, crap, things like that. low level stuff.

2. Sexual content:
Yep, This is a hot button issue and there's lots of different opinions for what is PG-13. In here:
keep the content to kissing/hugging, not too explicit of your own character's thoughts and don't use sexual/crass terms in reference to any part of the body. No written nudity please.

If your character and another's character are gf/bf, that totally fine...just keep it tasteful.

It's really simple guys, no writing out groping, no bed scenes, just use your common sense. Keep it tasteful. The prince going after the princess, etc....we get it she's gorgeous, he's enraptured. Just keep it tasteful.

if it's going to go into Yaoi/yuuri territory: I'm going to leave this to the Creator of the Forum; some find this offensive and some don't.

For now, if your character wants to hit on someone of opposite gender, that needs to be cleared by PMing that the other is ok with it. Some people would prefer to leave any sort of romance out of the picture. If you want your character to have any sort of relationship with another person's character, then clear it first and PM them if they don't mind if the direction goes that way so there's no confusion.

3. Violence/Blood/Gore: You know I'm not sure if anyone here is actually that objectionable to violence but don't go overly describing organs being ripped out XD Some people are sensitive. If it's a gruesome murder scene, all right. Just don't delve 'too' deep into the state of the carcasses, all right?


4. Playing Fair: This is the most important. don't make your character all-powerful (unless it's already been discussed and it's practically the purpose of the villain to be so). Heroes, same thing. Everyone has weaknesses; that's why there's a struggle! Everyone needs a weakness/some way to be defeated or else this is called Godding, in some Message Boards. This comes from well over 15 years of Role Playing Experience. I've seen a lot and this is the most common problem.

5. Courteousness If you're going to be away, please let us know. At least post once a day or once a night to keep the RP going. If you lose interest, do something with your character or give it to someone else to play if you wish.

6. God Modding Using powers that are beyond what you have to destroy, or to pretty much break the role play.

I agree with all these rules, and I'd just like to say if I find someone breaking any of these rules while moderating the forum I will issue a mild warning, nothing major, just asking to follow the rules to keep things clean and fun.
