General Rules of the RP Section
We've got general rules, and then rules specific to the type of RP experience you wish to enjoy: Relaxed (it's all for fun anyway! Not too many restrictions or rules) and Advanced (for the more srs peeps). General rules are followed by everybody here, but then it splits depending on which style you want to play with.

General Rules:
  1. The same rules and code of conduct that apply to the rest of the Tainted Onez apply to the RPG. For a copy of the Forum Rules and Code of Conduct, click here.
  2. Role-players and members of the RPG must be active members or participants on Tainted Onez.
  3. All Role-plays must be marked with the following Topic Prefix;
    (1) [Safe] for Teen and younger.
    (2) [M] for mature rps.
    (3) [1x1] for One-on-One Rps.
    (4) [group] for 3 or more ppl in a rp.
    (5) [Event] for event rps. For Staff only thou.
  4. No god-modding, power playing, or meta-gaming allowed.
  5. Keep OOC (Out of Character) talk in role-playing posts to a minimum. Do not post OOC-only posts in RP threads- post OOC-only posts in the OOC thread for your group RP which can be posted in the OOC area.
  6. Once a character has reacted to one of your In-Character posts, you are not to go back and edit your post to change the flow of the story.
  7. Specific posting orders and activity rules are not required in roleplay threads unless outlined in that thread's OOC board, but please be courteous. Please refrain from double-posting. Remember that sometimes fancy color tags and fonts aren't easily read on all computers. And don't hold up a roleplay for three weeks because they are waiting on you to post.
Consequences for choosing to break a Roleplay Zone Rule.
  1. First Offense The member will be contacted via PM by a staff member regarding the violation. This PM will be considered a warning.
  2. Second Offense If the same violation continues to occur or a separate violation occurs, then the member will be contacted by a staff member via PM regarding this violation and a second warning will be issued. At this stage, two things will happen:
    (1) the member will be placed on a temporary one week probation* from all role-plays, including games and events. Their characters will be treated as NPCs until their return. *in this sense, probation means that the member will not be allowed to post in the roleplaying sections of the Tainted Onez, but will still have access to and may post in the rest of the Tainted Onez.
    (2) the member will be requested to join the Writing and Roleplaying Guild and sign up for a Roleplaying Mentor; their mentor will be advised of their situation, and will create exercises for the member to complete in an attempt to improve areas of concern brought forth through the violations the member has. If they complete all exercises successfully and demonstrate an understanding of the issues they had, why it is important to fix them, and how to go about not making the same violation again, they may be allowed to end their probationary period early.
  3. Third Offense If the same violation continues to occur or a separate violation occurs, then the member will be contacted by SalyaDarken (or a RP Mods) via PM. At this stage, the member will be placed on a temporary two week ban from the Tainted Onez - the entire site. As before, their characters will be treated as NPCs until their return.
  4. Final Offense At this stage, the member will be banned from the Tainted Onez and given further instruction by One of the RP staff or SalyaDarken via the email the member's account is registered with.
*** If warranted a serious offense, the member may be temporarily banned from the Tainted Onez or given further instruction by SalyaDarken or RP head Mod.

Character Profiles Role-play Zone
Character Profiles are descriptions of the characters that a Role-player or writer uses in their Role-plays or stories.
General Notes on Character Profiles
  1. All Characters must have a profile submitted to the It's your stories.
  2. Any Profile template is allowed to use.
  3. Photos must be PG.
  4. Post all of your Characters in one thread Unless you buy sub-board in the character zone where you will be allowed to post profiles in different thread. (this will make the Character board cleaner)
Why are Profiles Required?
  1. Organizational Purposes so we, and other players, know who likes to play who and can look into recruiting you for future roleplays.
  2. Knowledge so players can get to know their characters better.
  3. Accountability to remind players to keep in character.
Non-Player Character (NPC) Information
NPC's are non-player characters (as opposed to player characters, or PC's). While Player characters have a roleplayer behind them directing their actions and thoughts, non-player characters generally do not. Their roles are generally side or supporting roles and are used to advance the plot in some way and then usually disappear from the story.
Typically, NPC's are controlled by the storyline creator, but, if stated in the OOC for the storyline, anyone in the roleplay can control them.
Any player can control an NPC, but they could never be them - like we don't write for them but we can write about what they do.

Like you can have them speak and whatnot, just can't be in their minds.

For example, having an NPC waiter/waitress take your order and then describing that they went and got it and returned would be using the NPC, going into her motive behind her actions, her thoughts as she got the food, etc., would not be NPC. NPCing a victim of a tragedy may have them tell the rest of the group what they had gone through, and maybe point out the next objective for the group, but going into their backstory, their feelings, or their thought-process would not be NPC. Generally, you show what NPC's do, not explain why they are doing it.
If an NPC goes beyond the realm of being an NPC - for example, a player goes too far into their heads, making them a feature rather than an accessory - we will request that the player either a) revise their post or b) make a profile and turn the NPC into a PC within one day of the post being made.

If multiple in-depth posts (i.e., posts told from the "NPC's" perspective) are made and it is obvious that the NPC is being treated as a PC by the player, the player will receive a warning for posting in a storyline without an accepted profile.

Players that go on hiatus and leave instructions for another person to "control" their character generally means to treat their character as an NPC, else assure that their character is not left behind if the setting keeps moving - it does not give permission for another player to roleplay as their character without an approved profile.

Character Profile Adoptions
Sometimes, for one reason or another, you might be interested in adopting a premade character profile. Maybe you're just trying out a character and want to get a feel for them; maybe someone put a neat-looking Character up for adoption and you want to give her/him a home; maybe you want to try something new for that upcoming event; maybe a player went inactive in a roleplay that required a specific type of profile, and you'd like to adopt their profile and take over their place (either while they are away or, in some cases, permanently)
General Notes on Character Adoption
  1. If a character is listed as up for adoption, he or she may be claimed by any player, to be used in any roleplay where such a character is welcomed.
  2. To officially adopt a character, PM the owner of the character.
  3. Once you have adopted a character, they are yours! You can change anything about them - use adoptables as a springboard for other ideas, or flesh them out and take them in a direction of your choosing! Have fun with them!

Roleplaying Events
Events are special Role-plays run by Roleplay Staff; there are two very different kinds of events with different rules, expectations, and activity levels for players. These types and expectations are laid out below:
Casual Events
These events are the best way to dip your toes into the RP Zone. If you've ever been curious about joining us here, a Casual Event is the perfect way to try it out!

Casual Events are easy-going and fun, with simple requirements.
  1. Duration:
    >Casual Events can vary in length, which will be determined in the sign up thread. These lengths can be anywhere from a weekend burst to a month-long endeavor. There are also special RTRPs* that only take a couple of hours.
  2. General Rules:
    >Although Casual Events are meant to be care-free playgrounds, there are still a few things you should try to keep in mind whilst participating:
    >Follow the General Rules of the RP Zones
    These rules are the go-to rules that every roleplayer should know. Despite its more casual approach, these events still use the same rules as all other RPs.
    >Be mindful of other players!
    Casual Events are often big and full of many different players, which is always fun and part of the charm! However, we want to make sure everyone has a chance to play. We don't want anyone to get left behind! It's great to be enthusiastic towards the event, but if you notice that you are posting very often and very quickly, try to take a break and give the other players a chance to catch up to you! It's no fun to play alone, after all.
    >Read all posts!
    Make sure to read all of the previous posts before you make your next one! This ensures that you don't miss out on something vital, and can help to keep your character from missing out on some fun interactions or appearing rude by accidentally ignoring others!
    >Keep an eye out for event goals!
    The event host will often post a goal for everyone to reach for throughout a certain period of time. This is normally depicted in a quote box to make it stand out a little more! These are generally guidelines to try and help move the plot along, but they are not mandatory to complete.
    >Try to remain active!
    Keeping a regular posting regimen helps keep the flow of the event going strong! And your character plays a vital part! Of course, things can come up and hinder you from posting, and there's nothing wrong with that. There's no penalty for dropping out, and you can join back in when you have time. If possible, please let the event host know, or post in the OOC thread for the event!
  3. Requirements
    >Character Profile - Participants are required to have their character's profile submitted in their Character theard, then link to that post must be posted in the OOC thread. Once it is approved for that RP, then on the Profile post, list what RPs that one character is in.
    >No word limit.
Examples of Past Casual Events: none right now.
Image
Hardcore Events
Hardcore events are a sampling of all the Roleplaying Section has to offer: dungeon crawler game elements and a one-month time limit to complete the story or get a bad ending.
  1. Duration:
    >One month exactly, unless a problem arises with the host, in which case the event will be extended for the number of days the host was absent.
    >If the storyline is not resolved within a month's time, then GameOver.
  2. General Rules:
    >All roleplay rules and TOZ rules apply.
    >Activity Rule: Participants are required to post within 24-48 hours or will be removed from the event (their characters will either be lost or replaced).
    >>Random Events may be introduced into the story if all players are active within the OOC chat or on the boards; Random Events are storyline plot events in which players will have a limited time to respond before consequences are enacted; each will come with a caveat in that if you cannot respond within the given time-frame, you may request another player's character take your character with them (if movement is required).
    >Consistency Rule: All players are held to the understanding that they will pay attention to the story flow, taking note of roleplay elements (situational - who's talking to who, where people are located, etc) and event elements (their HP, MP, the placement of others on the map, etc.). If a player derails the event with inconsistencies, consequences will occur.
  3. Requirements:
    > Character Profile - Participants are required to have their character's profile submitted in their Character theard, then link to that post must be posted in the OOC thread. Once it is approved for that RP, then on the Profile post, list what RPs that one character is in.
    >Word Requirement - Hardcore Events require minimum 50-word posts.
  4. Additional Elements:
    >Dungeon Crawler - some Hardcore Events will have dungeon-crawler game elements to them, wherein players will need to distribute attribute points to reflect their characters strengths, weaknesses, and special abilities, and will need to prescribe MP requirements to attacks. During these events, they will be at the mercy of random number generators (digital Dungeons and Dragons style die) for attacks and defense rolls to minimize godmodding and/or powerplaying.
    >Certain Events officially happen In <said> Time-line of <world/fandub> and so can be added to character's histories, instead of just their Storyline Information sections. Participating in these events, whether playing an original character or a canon character, can have consequences within this timeline we're creating together - characters can become famous, can make enemies and allies, and can, through storyline events, grow and develop as characters and let that development follow them through the overarching plot.

    Note, therefore, that choices have consequences in these games. Characters can die in these events if their HP goes less than 0 (in some circumstances), and therefore will not be allowed back into the chain after that event, and players who set stories in their character's 'future' may stipulate that a 'dead' character not participate because in their character's canon, that character is dead. This does not happen often.
Examples of Past Hardcore Events: none right now.

Monthly Challenges in the Tainted Onez' Rp Zone
Every month on the fifth, during the Roleplay Zone Monthly Meeting, the Roleplaying Admin issue challenges to the roleplaying community; these challenges range from easy-peasy to woah-that's-tough, and usually focus on a theme, activity levels, storyline completion, or goals. Participating in these monthly challenges is not mandatory, but we encourage everyone to check them out to become more involved in the section! Participation in or successful completion of these monthly challenges can earn players Roleplay Activity Card Points and beautiful 100x100 icons to display in Rain Ablum, not to mention the bonds you've created through banding together with people when roleplaying!
(We don't do an activiy card...yet. I will let the RP staff say if we do it or not)
