Introduction


1 ) How do you begin?

Hello and welcome to the Teen Titans Role Playing Game!

Before you can get started, you will first have to create an account. Creating an account is easy. First you have to click the 'Register' button on the top of the website and fill in your desired account name, password and your e-mail address. When this is a done, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address you specified. Inside that mail you will find a link. Click/Follow this link and your account will be activated.

After this, please have a look around the site. Check how everything is noted down, maybe look at a few posts to see how people roleplay and interact, before moving on. You are not yet able to respond to them, but you will be soon enough! When you think you are ready, go to the ''Common Room'' Category, and click on the 'Introduce your character' sub-category. Without a character, you cannot join roleplays set out by other members nor can you create one yourself.

So far, all you can do is look around, read posts, reply in the chat rooms, enter the chatbox, and edit your profile. However, next to personal data you can generate a character sheet. Unfortunately these won't be legitimate until you have made a character which has been approved. You can color up your profile with your birthday date, age, location, an avatar and a personal signature.

Character Creation



2 ) Creating a character

Now that you have successfully created an account, it is time to create your own character! If you have experience creating original characters (or OC's in short), feel free to use any kind of format you like, but the basis must consist of the template inside the 'Introduce your character' that can help you. It asks general information and character history, providing you with a format which ensures you will write a certain basic amount down.

Of course, there's also the possibility you want to roleplay as a canon character. Canon characters are basically the characters already existing in the Teen Titans Universe (i.e. Cyborg, Kid Flash) or any character that has been created by DC or other companies (Batman, Ben10). Temporarily you are not allowed to portray a canon character, because some special rules apply for this, and it is only advised to do so when you are experienced. More on this later.  

An individual member is allowed a maximum of 2 characters per account currently, with a one account maximum. Exceeding this limit will unfortunately result in deletion of some content and a decisive penalty.

Whenever you start making a character but do not have the time to finish it, you can still post it. If you do so, please add '(WIP)' in the title. This stands for "Work in Progress", and assures us you are not done yet. When you are, a moderator or Admin will review your application. Don't forget to notify them if you are done by replying to your own application ONCE! Removing (WIP) would also be a good idea. This is done by simply editing the application and removing it from the title. (Don't forget to also remove other things from the title of your character like "DONE!", "Rebooted", etc.) What should always remain in the Title is the name/nickname of the character (in my case, Emblem)

3 ) General character approval terms

Once you have finished your character application, there's a process called ''Character Review'' that will take place. It's a simple process which makes sure you character is suitable enough to enter the world of TTRPG. It's a very flexible process, which can take some time.

There are two versions of this ''Character Review'' process: Canon Character Review and Original Character Review. While both bear certain similarities, they have defining differences.

3.1) Original Character Review:

Whenever you have created an applicational profile for your Original Character and have completed it, a Moderator or Admin will read it through when he or she has time. They will look for a few key points: History, Affiliation (Good/Neutral/Evil) and Powers. These affect most of your characters actions and possibilities, but logically, everything else will be looked at as well. One of the things that will be looked at is the strength of your character. Strength in terms meaning how much use his power is in every situation, how it can be used or possibly abused. When starting out, you should keep it minimized for there is always time to grow stronger with even some additional powers to be discovered.

A character may be strong, but there's a thin line between a good strong character and one that is overpowering in many aspects. As stated earlier, it's a flexible process, but if you feel like you need a guideline of sorts, keep in mind that a character would have a maximum of 3 powers currently. These three powers could be strong and weak, and a character with 3 main powers with a few 'lesser' variations for each power (Sub-powers! EX; the main power would be absorbing energy, but sub-powers for that power would consist of shooting the energy back at opponents, getting power-ups from absorbing it, etc.) would get approved earlier then one with 3 'greater' powers with strong sub-powers. Per example, a power such as night vision would be significantly less strong and overpowering then immortality or invulnerability. Keep in mind that if fire magic would be a power, all the small abilities that come with it do not count as powers (Such as a fireball another spell) however do describe what your character does with the fire magic and realize that eating fire would be a sub-power because it is not the same as using it and other such examples that come to mind. The more detail, the better will help us discern whether it's a sub-power or not! Doing research on your characters abilities will also help clear up confusion.

Weaknesses are also a huge part of your character; 2 are needed! Weaknesses are not optional, or anything to just be bullet pointed real quick. Chocolate addiction and a bad temper cannot suffice for powerful characters that can move city buses. The weaknesses should in one way or another immobilize or negate your character's ability to use their own abilities. Also, when presented with situations regarding your weakness it is common to want to find ways around it. While I am not saying that is condoned or not condoned, I will say when blatantly hit or presented with the situation, it should cause severe problems for your character in someway, which stops them from functioning optimumly in that situation. Remember roleplaying needs to be fun and equal for everyone. Even if your character's a GOD like being and you're fighting a human being. Weaknesses are there to keep things proportional.

Those in charge of the reviewing process will also look at other aspects to see if your character is quite well put together. It needs to be a real character, not a combination of some random facts. Per example, if you would have an alien mother and an other alien father and your character would be a human, then that would certainly raise some questions. The Admins and Moderators check this to make sure there are no weird things or uprising questions about your character. In doing this, we try to ensure roleplay creativity, unblocked by questions and unresolved matters that do not make sense normally.

If a Moderator or Administrator does not think a profile is adequate enough, they will ask the creator to either elaborate on things, clear things up, or probably to change things. Their reply will contain all information you should need to further your application. When you have made said changes or answered said questions, they will look over your profile again, repeating the evaluation process until the character is acceptable enough.

Whenever a Moderator or Administrator thinks your character has what it takes to enter the world of TTRPG, they will approve the profile with a positive reply (As of yet, many expresses this with an Acceptance stamp). A second Moderator will be needed to look over and approve the powers, making sure that nothing was missed. After that, the profile will soon be moved to the 'Active' Roster.  

3.2) Canon Character Review:

The reviewing process regarding 'Canon' character is almost identical to that of of a custom character. A 'Canon', in short, is a character that already exists in the Teen titans or Dc Universe. Character such as Raven, Cyborg and Kid Flash are seen as Canon.

TTRPG strives to create a roleplaying world where the custom characters are regarded normal. However, while some of us do not encourage Canon characters, we would not want to deny the possibility to play as one. Due to critique that usually besets those who plays Canon characters, the process of approval is slightly different. Let's say we do not want the 'Booyah-syndrome' to manifest. There's nothing more annoying then an individual roleplaying as Cyborg and shouting Booyah in every sentence. Such experiences are one we try to prevent.

The parts of the application are in general the same as those regarding Custom character creation. You create a profile for the Canon character you want to play as, we review it, and if we think it's adequate, will reward you with access to that character. For Canons, that would be a unique thing. There are however, a few differences.

The quality of the profile needs to be high at the very least. Every aspect that we have stated in the template needs to be there. Every power and part of his/her equipment, alongside a fitting history. It's possible a Canon's history is too massive, but we see this as a test. When a profile is inadequate, then we do not have faith one could play that character right. So please research your character and then condense/paraphrase the history in your own words onto your own application.  (DO NOT COPY & PASTE) The history Section of the template, are vital when applying for a Canon character. The moderators need to be convinced you are capable of roleplaying as that Canon character.

Our assessment regarding a Canon profile is quite strict to ensure quality. Canon character possess more strength then Customs in most cases because we cannot limit their powers or abilities. Profiles are checked, if possible, by a Moderator who has knowledge of the character that is applied for. Again, if they would want you to make changes, they will implore you to do so, their word is rule on this one.

If the staff decides not to allow a Canon character at all, they will say so. This is not to thwart any individual, but sometimes, a Canon character would be too much of an unbalancing factor (The Source from DC). Canon characters who are warped in any way have a chance of being denied as well. Moderators and Administrators also have the right, at all given times, to request further changes, and disallow any member to continue their development. This is to make sure no member tries time and time again, and forms a profile based on a Moderator's requests.  

When a profile gets accepted, you will be allowed to roleplay as the requested Canon character. However, there will be a testing period. This period varies, as some roleplay much, others less. It will be in between two weeks and a month for good reference. If you barely post within that month you risk losing the character altogether. If during this time any individual thinks you lack in quality when roleplaying as the character, they can PM any moderator or the Admin. They will see if the claim is valid at the very least, and if so, will warn the one roleplaying the Canon, or remove his privilege immediately, depending on the faults made. After this testing period, if no reports were made, other members can still report him or her, but it will not be accepted easily. If you have proven yourself, you don't need to fear we will take your privilege away anytime soon.

In short, Canon's are handled more strict then Customs. TTRPG allows the use of them, but tries to handle them with care, only awarding them to roleplayers who are deemed worthy. If you want to apply as a Canon, be warned that it's going to be tough to accomplish such a feat. Try it only when you are sure of your roleplaying abilities!

4 ) Joining a Titan Tower?

It's a possibility that you would want your Canon hero or heroine to fight crime with a team! We offer this option at TTRPG, but have given it a twist. There are a few ways to join a Titans Team or the HIVE if you are a villain. You can discuss a roleplay involving your character getting in or you can roleplay and have your character discovered and added in naturally. Be advised, the Titans do not just accept all who want to join, nor do the HIVE. They are HEROES and VILLAINS for a reason. If your character loves killing and is a lone wolf, a team probably isn't that right fit for him or her. Same goes for the HIVE, except with the killing part being lenient obviously and don't just assume that you will be the renegade bad boy of the team.

The second option is to opt in for a new Tower to be created. Currently, we have one Titans Tower in Jump City and up to four can be created. There's the option to create a new Titans team, however, the others must be filled or there msut be a good reason for why you need your own other than youw ere denied entry to the other. It would be wise to PM an Admin or Moderator if such a Team would be allowed. They will respond, and if so, you can freely create a roster thread and start searching for members. You will need at least 5 members to form a Tower in Jump City, after moderator/admin approval. Do not forget to ask them, any attempt made to create a team without their consent will be denied without consideration.


This brings us to our third option. If official teams are not allowed, your character could always cooperate with other characters and simply try to attain some peace by fighting together. There would be no official Tower, but the fights and experiences would still be there and you can make your own roster and convene in your own bases of operation.

General Rules


5 ) Roleplaying Rules

Every forum has rules set in stone regarding their roleplays. Some point at consistency, length of posts and usage of words. On TTRPG, we believe common sense is the best pointer, but what those words hold is always a debate amongst members. We try to keep the rules simple, and to a minimum preferably, but expect this section to be updated. TTRPG does not have a fixed minimum of words your posts needs to have, but we will not tolerate 2 line roleplays consecutively anymore and encourage you to push yourself and write as much detail as would be regarded good!

The big rules regard the phenomena called Godmodding, Powerplaying, Ninjadodging and Rhinohiding. These terms are explained as such:

Godmodding is the term used to describe typed out actions by individuals that makes other characters do or say things that's unlike them, and/or without their consent. You are not allowed to force any character you do not own to perform any action without their consent. Per example, if Emblem was fighting Krious, I would not be allowed to let Krious say things ('Rainbows make me cry') or be automatically hit by my attacks.

Powerplaying has a slight overlap with Godmodding, but it's meaning is slightly different. While we try to keep a balance in characters to make sure there's still some growth possible and there's no unfair edge they can have, there will always be situations where one character is stronger then the other. Powerplaying basically is a series of actions done by your characters that completely dominates or obliterates your opponent, such as beating them down without any possible escape, defensive mechanism or counterattack possible. Again, without consent of your opponent. Whatever you attempt, your opponent must have the ability to react or do something.

Ninjadodging and Rhinohiding are almost direct opposites of Powerplaying and Godmodding, but they are still quite illegal regarding roleplay activities. Ninjadodging refers to a character dodging everything that is thrown at him, time and time again. I would not think any opponent would still want to RP with such an adversary after two posts of Ninjadodging, but it's unrealistic as well. No character can see every attack coming, and dodge every single one of them, possibly even counter-attacking.

Rhinohiding is almost the same as Ninjadodging. It's where a character either takes all the attacks thrown at him (and not even be fazed, nor have any damage) or hides behind objects such as walls or cars to shield himself from all of it.

It's logical not to allow any form of these abusive roleplaying styles. Would we catch any of you, or would any member report of it, the punishment will be high. If that would not be enough, the community will not like any roleplayer who employs such tactics. The following rules are quite minor, but important nonetheless.

Your character MAY NOT rule the world.

When in mortal danger if the death is 100% unavoidable then your character will die - there is no amping powers or suddenly breaking the rules of the roleplay to save yourself. If there was no way to know of the danger, then circumstances can be altered to avoid death. If you overextend your character they can be freely killed.

Character reviewing is not something that should be overexerted. You only allowed to drop one character in a 2 month period from now on.

Your character may be in as much threads as possible, but needs to know which one happened first. Messing up the chronological order would be quite sad.

Keep any topic PG-13. We are trying to stay close to the Teen Titans Universe, and while some things may be gruesome, don't go too far. Come on it's a Kids TV show roleplay.

Your character may NOT swear on this site. Even if it is a quirk of your character, a swear here and there is no problem, but it's extremely distracting if done more then once or twice in a big post, even if you are a skilled roleplayer. Remember being polite pays off and you catch more flies with honey. Also, we prefer if your character is big on swearing that you replace the curse word with !#%@ signs or s**t. 

Your (Canon) character is not allowed to have an over-the-top amount of relationships or resources. Obviously, we wanna keep a lid on the extreme fanboys and girls of any canon character. Raven wouldn't have a boyfriend, and Robin won't be making regular phone calls to Batman. It's quite pathetic seeing somebody roleplay with a canon character in an unrealistic or extreme manner. There are too many Terra, Raven, Beast Boy and Robin fans floating around, to the point they are almost seen as untouchable. Be original! Getting into a relationship, if you want one, is much more interesting with another member then rekindling Terra's love affair with Beast Boy for example, and it takes some effort! Also using a canon characters does not put them above other original characters.

More rules may be added if the need for them arises.

6) Chatbox rules

The rules are short, simple, and easy to follow. So you really have no excuse for failing to do so. 

- Don't harass other members. You may talk about generally whatever you want with the exceptions named, but if it becomes a problem and they tell you to stop, do so or continue it via pm. Obviously, flaming is also a no-no and if everyone in the CB is speaking on the subject, but you yourself are having issue with what's being discussed, please relocate yourself until the subject ends. We are not going to punish 14 people over 1 persons disposition, so it it's better if you just exit until the subject is done being discussed unless it's offensive and breaks site rules, then by all means report it. 

- Keep it clean. I do mind profanity. If you are cursing you will be kicked, if you return and continued there will be a two hour temporary ban. No exceptions.

- A little flirting or whatever is fine, but cybering is a big, big problem. If I catch ANYONE cybering in the cbox, BOTH parties will be banned immediately from the cbox for a duration of three days. No questions asked, take it to PM or do a scene skip, but NO DETAILS!

- No real life religious discussion. Sorry, we may have a whole lot of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Atheists etc on here and we all have our beliefs and practices and no one has any right to criticize them. Some people are more sensitive than others, so even if you say say something you don't deem offensive, it might be so to another person. 

Now there is an exception when it comes to roleplay, but do not take science vs religion debates too far and keep it to rp. Don't get philosophical and try to get into religious politics in real life. So mythology, stuff with Hades and alien religion, native american or Asian lore gods. Cool, go for it, but stuff like Christianity that doesn't relate to DC is a BIG NO NO!

- Keep everything PG-13. You should all know what that means.

- The user of the account through which any of the above rules were violated, is at all times responsible of anything that occurs with his/her account. Hackers, little brothers, silly kittens, possessing Symbiotes, or mysterious glitches are not any excuse.

- Most important, have fun, even while chatting! That's the point of this RPG, and by extension the cbox, and that's why we're all here! Don't hamper other people's fun. Someone who isn't having fun isn't someone who wants to stay here. In other words, don't complain about your real life issues every other day in the chatbox and continuously bring down the mood of others. We feel bad for you, but still, no one wants to read that everyday.

7 ) Rules on general behavior

Unfortunately, every website has to have one of these parts. Rules on general behavior regarding members and their interactions. Simply pointing to common sense would not be enough in this case, which forces us to write down a few simple things you need to keep in mind. There's an overlap with the Chatbox rules, logically. More rules can be added if the need for them arises.

Rules regarding interaction with other members:

- This is not a dating site for the members to hook up. Keep it to pm's if you're going to.

– Be polite. If you know others personally, they will understand all things you say, but on sites such as TTRPG, you meet a lot of strangers, and all you know about them is their preferred nicknames/account name. Don't be a jerk on your first trip to the Chatbox or any thread. In character is one thing, out of character is another.

– Do not harass other members. If members do not want to talk in the Chatbox, or do not feel like Pming, do not harass or flame them for this. Each member has his or her own life to attend to. Likewise, do not bury them in endless PM's when they do not reply within 24 hours on any PM or thread you posted in. However, if they are blowing you off don't feel any loyalty to them. 

After 48 hours, feel free to skip the user and if you stated they would be skipped at the beginning of the thread if they didn't respond within a certain time do it, by all means that's on them, but still try to be patient and lenient.

– Discussions are alright in general, but do not start pointless discussions time and time again, and do not start these within threads. Take it to an appropriate place, such as the Chat Room sub-board. Basically, stay on subject, OCC & OT ruin the flow of rps.

Rules regarding interactions with the Moderators and Administrators:

– The Moderators and Administrators have the right to point you at the Forumotion Terms of Service accepted when creating your account or any other ruling stated in this rulebook or elsewhere.

– If a Moderators sees any unjust action, he or she has the right to correct it even if the action was not yet spoken about in the rulebook. They will then proceed to contact the Administrator to add a rule correcting this.

– Moderators and Administrators have the right to edit any content on this site, including but not limited to any profiles, avatars, rules, and signatures.

– Unless clearly stated they allow this, no verdict made by a Moderator or Administrator may be up for discussion. If you really think a decision they made is unjust, PM the appropriate Moderator or Administrator and carefully explain why. If they feel your reasoning is valid, they will undo their decision. If not, then you can approach a higher up, but MAKE SURE your reasoning is valid. Basically, don't waste our time. However, most of the moderators are pretty decent individuals. 

– The Moderators and Administrators at TTRPG strive to create a suitable environment for everyone to roleplay in. Respect their decisions, as sometimes, this means a little taking and giving. We want everyone to be satisfied, and have reasons behind everything we do. Moderators and Administrators however, will not voice those reasons every time it is asked for, especially not after they have already done it once or twice. We have no need to fully explain ourselves. Trust us! And keep an open mind.

– Misinterpretation of anything typed by a Moderator or Administrator is not their error, but those who misinterpreted the information unless a spelling/grammatical error occurred. Make sure to carefully read their posts.

– Decisions made by Moderators can only be revoked by the same Moderator, or the Administrator. So do not try telling a moderator of the same standing if you do not get your way on something.

Do keep in mind the Moderators and Administrators are here to help. Contrary to popular belief, they are human. You can ignore personal advises about your character, but every official command they give is to be followed. Don't worry, they're not too bad, they only bark if you behave and only bite if you don't. Talking to them in a formal manner will probably pay off more then the usual internet slang that appears everywhere.

Respect is key here, if you show it to us, we will return it and then some.

Questions and Answers



8 ) Questions and Answers

Questions are good. The questions below have been asked to us, and the answers to them can be found below them. If you have a question which is not found on here, please post a thread in the Medical Bay. If it's a good one, it will be added here. Do know that every member may respond to such a thread, so don't easily take the first reply as final. While most of the members will answer such a question appropriately, any answer by a Moderator or Administrator is 'official'.

Q: First of all, do all of the main canon characters (Robin, BB, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg, etc.) exist in this RP?

A: Yes, the main characters still exist, but is not available at the moment. There will eventually be an option to apply for one of these characters, but this process is difficult, and not easily passed. If you want to use any of the canon characters to support one of your storylines, PM any Moderator (or the Administrator if there's no Moderator available) to ask permission to use that canon character. Do keep in mind that roleplaying a Canon Character is hard, and most over exaggerate one of two features, as per example, Cyborg shouting booyah every sentence. (The Booyah-syndrome)

Q: ...If so are they still titans?

A: They are still Titans, yet they are out and away or on travel, like in the fifth season of the cartoon. They still fight bad guys if they are around, they still know each other, they fight separately and together, but they're all over the world. In the meantime, Jump has grown considerably, and many new villains and heroes have made their way in to the story.

Q: How many titans headquarters are there? Is titans north with Robin or is that south or west?

A: Currently, there is one Titans Tower. We had to take it down a notch due to inactive members before, eventually there will be more. These Towers all stand in a different district of Jump. Currently, Jump is HUGE, one of the biggest cities in the world. As long as there active members, and other towers are full, a new Tower can be formed in Jump City. Towers will be filled with active members, preferably no canon characters. 

Q: I know that Titans East is with Aqualad, Speedy and that crew but I was wondering if someone could possibly create one? Like if someone wanted to make...idk...a Titans Desert Dome or something? Maybe that place is in New Mexico...

A: All Canon characters, including Speedy and Aqualad, are being treated as if they completely disappeared. However, the more members, the more Towers. The focus of this RPG is around Jump City, however. It is ok to move around the world, but the base of operations needs to be in Jump.

Q: Could they say that other titans that weren't part of a team joined their team? Someone like Kid Flash or Pantha or Thunder and Lightning...Wildebeast...etc?

A: Canon characters, meaning all characters from the series, can be used in support and you can apply for one when they are available. If you want to play a Canon character you'd have to show me you are able to pull it off as shown in this rulebook, by making a profile and being watched during a test period. If you're good enough, you will be informed that you can remain roleplaying that character. If the Moderators, Administrators or any other members complain and they are right in doing so, you lose the right to that character.

Needless to say, at the moment the chances of a member forming a Tower with a Canon character are quite slim.

Q: Also, are the HIVE still around? You know, Jinx, Gizmo and Mammoth? Is that place join-able for an evil side?

A: Yes, but no. The old HIVE was abolished, but is still available for enrollment on these RPG boards. You preferably make your original character, then you can have him/her still be enrolled.  However, meaning your character is with HIVE would say he/she is in the HIVE Academy. However, keep in mind that the HIVE is a team and a school. Meaning, your epic killer will have to comply with rules and cannot be the most powerful on the team and will most likely not just be taking over the place.

Q: Can we just make up random evil people for our people to go up against?

A: Yes, be it in a fair setting. We have a Create-a-Villain or "Rogues Gallery" section if you want to create a villain, you have to use the same type of application process for your character there too. All that's vital should at least be wrote down, along with the use of the villain. Is he around for one storyline or is he going to stay a while as your arch nemesis, can others use this character or just you will also be determined. Currently, we don't allow for villains to be just for one sole person.

Q: Do you guys make up big plots that could affect the titans everywhere? Some reason to unite again like some planet taking over dude that has to be stopped for some reason?

A: We had done that before in something we called the Storylines RP-Database section. In this part of the forum, big episodes or storylines were drawn out and people could join it. However, most of the big storylines never came to an end, people preferred staying in one spot and talk and talk and talk endlessly.

The creators of those great storylines (Evil Titans, Mystery of the GEII, Flash to the Future) had the power to let the story progress, but got tired of all these people that kept on talking or trying to make the story about them and kept on grabbing back to what just happened that eventually, those storylines died out.

Nonthe less, you are free to create any storyline yourself within your threads, and let other play a role in it. PMing such members would be a good idea. Huge storylines would be best talked about with a Moderator or the Administrators. They should still be attempted, but be wary of the aforementioned problems. 70% of the time big threads like that will fail if not watched.

Q: So is it frowned upon to just join up with Titans or should I go through the motions of meeting members and getting invited in?

A: Very much. It would be best to read the section regarding joining a Titans Tower and also roleplay around Jump City first and build up a name and experience. This goes for joining the HIVE too. That way when you meet up with the Titans you will have better chance of being accepted, rather than just some random person with powers.

Q: For Canon Chars what about characters like Superboy or Kid Devil and Ravager. Also could I app as someone like Static AKA Static Shock or Supergirl, who are from different shows? Not to mention use of X-men/marvel chars?

A: Good one. There's the reviewing process to be followed for Canon characters and we do not allow X-men or Marvel characters in general, as well as anime. This is, after all, a Teen Titans oriented board. However, marvel and anime characters likeness can be used as long as it's not an exact duplicate of the original and by exact I mean 70% of it must be your own creation. As for DC chars from the comics, no canons are allowed currently, but when they are this will be determined.

Q: For storylines, do we just go do our own thing, or do I have to be a part of a much bigger general RP? Also how would I get a general lowdown of the RPG's history? As so I know not to go into a restaurant for example that's been burnt down in a recent story or something and burn it down again?

A: The site has currently been rebooted and therefore the history is all new. You can do your own thing, and can talk to other members to see if they want to RP with you or anything. Asking other for a general update could be helpful as well in the chatbox.

This list is meant to supplement the already existing rules & remind the members of some issues we have noticed in complying with them:

Magical Powers - Magic spell users can typically have gives you 5-10 spells, but you get 2 less for each additional power you have. In the end, moderators hold the final say in whether your character is overpowered or not.

Mastery over martial arts is now considered a power and counts towards your number of allowed powers. Your character can still have a small amount of training in martial arts without it counting as a power, but being a Quadruple degree black belt in anything will be considered a power. 

No swearing in the chat box. Constant swearing will get you one warning from a moderator and then you are banned from the chatbox for a week. Repeated offenses in this area will result in a permanent ban from the chat box. Moderators have the final say of what is or isn’t offensive.

Characters will not be approved if you cannot display a competent level of writing skill. This is meant to keep post quality high. We want everyone to easily be able to understand your posts.

You are allowed 2 characters, and you may only have one user account. If you have trouble getting into your account and have to make another one, please contact a moderator as soon as possible.

Just a reminder, controlling another player’s character in any way is not allowed unless agreed upon. If godmodding is reported, a moderator will give the offender one warning. After that, the moderator will intervene in the thread and will have all authority in deciding the outcome of the offending character.
