Rules of the role plays

Post  Ruinily on Tue Jun 08, 2010 8:06 pm

No advertising
No bumping
No spamming
No killing off other peoples characters without permission of the owner or auto killers
Preferably no overly long posts about nothing that have no reason to be that long.
Preferably no "txt" talk, and try your best with spelling and grammar, though there should be no grammar nazis...
Violence is fine, just dont go too overboard...
Swearing is fine as long as its not too much or out of character.
Romance is also fine as long as we dont get all the tiny details or cybering, if you're desperate to cyber go and type in private message...
In the bars section people can give anything from one liners to a short story, just dont be put off typing by any long posts, ALL post lengths are accepted there. However in the inns section you will need to try and keep up a good length of post, about four sentences minimum unless the thread owner says otherwise.
No threatening, flaming, trolling, or making real drama that is hurtful in the rp forums. All angst and hatred should stay in the rp and be only rp acting.
The word of the threads owner is law that can only be overruled by a mod. You will have to obey them or make your own thread. However if a thread owner is seriously out of order please tell a mod and let them sort it out.
No breaking out of character, unless you are talking in ooc (out of character), then you must surround your writing with double brackets, ((like this.)) Try not to type in ooc too much in an rp, create an ooc thread in this forum if you really want to talk about
The threads in the inns will need a character profile with as much detail as you can manage. Everything from where the character was born to what their favourite food is.

Long list of things that arent accepted in serious rping (though some arent that as taboo as others) :

I didnt write this list, but I think it is a great list of all the different things that might annoy someone in an rp.

An aimbotter is a role player who has ridiculously unrealistic accuracy and unsurprisingly never misses (or almost never.) This is not only limited to firearms but also to any projectile such as mystically throwing a shard of metal into someones ear lobe from a few hundred metres off.
Billy: My two pet humming birds fly around me.
Ben: From a hundred metres away I shoot behind my back with a 9mm pistol and one of the hummingbirds heads fly off, I then spin around a peg my gun directly into the other bird.

The most annoying role playing crime, the player who thinks he is a God, he either never takes a hit, or when he does takes zero damage. They also tend to incoparate many other AMP violating things, which is just modey.
Billy: I slash at your neck with my battle axe.
Ben: The axe breaks in half on my seemingly normal neck. And I do not receive a scratch.

IDKFA- ers are basically spys, with totally unrealistic gadgets or items on their body or person, which are also unrelated to the character, such as a laser pen on Solid Snake. Or James Bond and a condom.
Billy: I raise a gun to your forehead.
Ben: I tap my watch and it turns into a magnet which pulls your gun right out of your hand before a laser cannon emerges from my sunglasses along with two tactical nukes.

Sometimes allowed in certain RPs. If the RP isn't specifically about invincible deities and such, a simple rule is that if the strengths aren't counterbalanced with relatively equivalent weaknesses (or if the reasoning behind the phenomenal cosmic powers isn't eloquently and appropriately explained), you're dealing with a Twink.
Billy: Having knocked you down, I give you my hand to help you to your feet.
Ben: My skin turns you to stone.

Basically the same as a twink but tends to incoporate many more powers as opposed to the twinks token super unstoppable power, and also has usually one (sometimes more) token weakness.
Billy: After you beating me to a pulp with your super magic armour I ask you what weakness's it has.
Ben: Uhh, if you hit both armpits at the same time with a wet towel.

Miss Cleos
Using out of character knowledge in a role play, sons of bitches. Theese are especially frowned upon.
Billy: (( My character is secretly a fire mage even though he shows no sign of it in his appearance. ))
Ben: Turns on a high pressured hose. "Die you fire bitch!"

Mcfly as in the movie back to the future! That should explain itself XD
Billy: Now that your force field is down I can run inside your base!
Ben: Um.... um.... there is also a super secret second force field that is twice as strong as the last one! I didn't say anthing about it before or even mention anything like it because it was so secret, not because I just made it up!

They interfere with things that only the creator of the thread should be capable of usually to do with the environment, for instance self destructing a base, only the leader should have such permission and codes. Tis a no no.
Billy: "My bar has been sieged by evil ninjas!"
Ben: Presses a self destruct button that I always knew was hidden under the painting of an orange.
Billy: ((There is no self destruct button!!))

Dictating what another persons character does or how they react, extremely irritating.
Billy: I walk into the room and sit down at the bar.
Ben: I smash you in the head with a bottle and you run screaming from the room before falling down the stairs and killing yourself.

Billy: I sit down under a tree.
Ben: I sit next to Billy under a tree. My knee scuffed jeans gently padded down on the lofty grass at the bottom of the old oak tree, whose barks was a very light brown. My beige shirt which had a faint rip at the bottom left corner gently swayed in the breeze of a north easterly wind. This reminded me of how when I we were young boys we used to play together. Oh, those were the days, we never had a care in the world, except for when Bradley got the chicken pox and we thought we would turn into chickens! Oh how red my face was when I realised that we wouldn't after all.

Basically the largest idiot in a place, who accuses others of breaking AMP rules when they are. Guilty.
Billy: I slash at you as hard as I can with my sword.
Ben: I catch your sword and snap it in half before punching you in the face causing your nose to bleed.
Billy: ((You can't just catch my sword and make me bleed like that!))
Ben: ((Yes I can! You can't swing a sword without moving foward and everbody knows that I'm uber strong and can snap swords, so you were always going to get punched, and if you think you could have moved that quickly you would be godmodding! n00b!! ))

Shoe elves
A form of puppet mastery that usually involves the lack of another characters role players presence, it is not a very common problem. And usually only a bit of a joke.
Billy: ((I have to go eat dinner. See you guys later!))
Ben: Notcing that Billy stopped moving I walk up to him and shave off both his eyebrows before taking off his clothes and taking numerous photos which I send to playgirl.

Someone who's alters and RP to suit their needs, usually when they don't like the RP itself.
Billy: Considering this is a Medieval RP, I take my time as my illiterate and somewhat retarded peasant, wandering around te town boredly.
Ben: Not particuarly liking the looks of this RP, I decide to spice things up a bit by deploying my Iron Maiden robots, giant metal skull crushing machines of doom, which incinerate all in their path!
Billy: (( This is a MEDIEVAL RP! ))
Ben: (( Not any more bitch. ))

Someone who does far to much in a single post, most in fight posts should only consist of a couple seconds. Otherwise its almost verging into puppet mastery with the lack of the other characters reaction.
Billy: I shoot at you twice with still six bullets remaining in my gun.
Ben: I jump behind a table to escape your shots, and then I get back up and calmly make a cup of tea before walking up to you and slapping you in the face.

A character that is basically the opposite of itself, and therefore extremely unlikely to exist. Such as a pacifist preist warlord. They just don't make sense.
Billy: In this roleplay based in 1840, Texas, I am a cowboy.
Ben: I am a young boy who was trained in Tibet in the ancient art of Kung Jujitsu and also how to shoot every kind of gun there is. And I ride up to you on a motorbike.

Baghdad Bobbits
Puppet masters and aimbotters combine to form an instakill style of role play.
Billy: I look up at the stars.
Ben: I run up to you and grab your hand pulling you over before stabbing you several times in the spine with a large fork.

So named after such things as the xenomorphs from Aliens, the Klendathu bugs from Star ship Troopers, and the teeming hoards they generally are. These hoards are always fearless, will battle until dead, and quite often have some excessive weapons and/or armour. Basically, it's the guys who have too many NPCs.
Billy: I wait in the meadow for my opponent to arrive.
Ben: I see Billy and then whistle and seven thousand of my super ninja warriors appear from the shadows to kill you.

Gaseous Snakes
A character that apparently was everywhere in the past and did everything possible that could benefit themselves.
Billy: I run through the forest, weaving and cutting through trees.
Ben: You fall down a pit I dug earlier knowing exactly where you would run.

The people who alter their character as needed for the situation.
Billy: After revealing your true vampire form I stab at your heart with a wooden stake.
Ben: The stake hits a my chest and splinters because I am also a robot!

The people who quite readily attack others' threads, but then stop all attacks on their own thread.
Billy: "You burnt down my bar now its time for you to pay!"
Ben: My hundred auto turrects activate, as well as a magical pulse that paralyses all living things. As you stand in the middle of a highly dangerous mine field.
Ben: -Deletes post-

The knowledge downloaders, the omniscience wizards. Those people who never learnt anything but know everything.
Billy: After a life being brought up hunting with my father I can use a knife and shoot quite well.
Ben: Growing up alone I became tough. Now I know twenty martial arts and how to fly a helicopter even though your the first person I've ever met.

Remember the gun room from the Matrix, its like that. But in someones pocket.
Billy: At the sight of the full moon I turn into a werewolf and charge at you howling for blood.
Ben: Even though I was swimming and in just a towel, I pull a gun loaded with a silver bullet out from undre my towel and shoot at your chest.

Those characters which mysteriously appear in different areas with no explanation due to poor writing.
Billy: Sitting on the roof as everyone else sits inside I sigh thinking about my dead father.
Ben: I hear Billy sigh and ask him if he is alright and pat him on the back.
Billy: ((Dude you were just inside. A whole storey was blocking us. ))

Aimbotter and puppet master mixed to make a person who tells you how he hit you and how his hit connected, it is sometimes allowed.
-When opponent misses second attack, does not include second attack, or completey ignores attack.
-When player chnages the nature of the attack, best exaple would be someone kicking somes forearm, if that person was varying between forearms and the attack chanegd kicks while person changed their forearm, his new attack would connect with forearm. If new attack is more powerful than last attack the person defending would lose that defense and get hit.
Billy: I take a swing at you with a bat.
Ben: I grab the bat from your hands, spin around and smash your knee caps backwards.

An autodefend is when you ignore logic and manage to dodge attacks which clearly should've hit you; this is not complex physics, rather simple laws of gravity. If you're moving in any direction, you need to take time to stop. Unless you can back up with logical inromation how you managed it, then it's an autodefend. N.B. this is often missunderstood, so please dont accuse someone when you aren't positive that it is an autodefend.
Example -
Billy: He speeds towards you, his blade drawn, flying at an amazing speed, and swings towards your gut.
Ben: Quickly, and having already been prepared for a long awaited attack, he lets out a burst of energy and flies behind you at lightning speed, gains control and slices towards your back.
Billy: He spins around and stops your blade.
