So, Rule #1, be reasonable when playing a character outside of the RP forums?

Guys, gals, promise that you talk to him next time before exploding the forum, please.

I still maintain that the GM needs to be able to say no to a player, if that player is being unreasonable.

edit: Crystal, the way you rewrote rule #4, I'm perfectly okay with that.

I agree with saying no to a player, if you as a GM want something a specific way and they don't follow it tell them no. But, at least give the player a reason to justify their actions.


the GM can give a warring and if it is not fallowed ,they can remove that person from there RP. how dose that sound

Or you can do this: three strikes, you're out.

Yes, I agree with that. Its when they are not allowed to participate at all without even being given a chance that I have a problem with.

Alright, just so you know you can still use 1 character outside of the RP forum as long as you don't overdo it.

That's entirely reasonable. I think the rule should be that "The GM must try to accomodate a new player, as long as the player is reasonable." And the rule should be a guideline...

I think what should be added, is that the topic starter needs not to necessarily be the GM. Because if someone volunteers, and the current GM isn't up to the task, it should be possible to share that with a willing person as long as there's an agreement between both the current and future GMs, and the players.

I agree, GM should be allowed to appoint a second in command in their absence and share ideas.

If you all can come up with a general set of rules, I may be able to write out an official thread for it.

I believe that's what you guys were asking for, but I am unsure.

You know what? I think we could do a quest, with me as the GM.

Not many kingdoms have a male Princess. Let alone one as fair as Princess Venus. The boy-Princess was a kind, if... Eccentric ruler. Until one day, an evil Sorceress kidnapped the Princess. Thus, the Princess's Waifu sought out the greatest heroes in the land some random shmucks. You... Are one of those shmucks. Save the Princess. Prove you are not, in fact, a shmuck.

It is quite possible I will be making up everything as I go along. So yeah, expect hilarity to ensue.

I got an idea, how about you do a choose your own adventure? You make it up then give choices on what to do and can ask for write ins from the members. :D People don't need to apply for roles and you can run it by yourself.

If I may add my own two cents(even though I haven't really been active lately);
Crystal Queen wrote:
6.) Please finish a RPG before starting another one. If you are currently participating in a RPG and wish to participate in another, please announce that you are officially leaving, or wait until it is finished before starting the new one.

I can understand the reasoning behind this rule, in not wanting to get players overwhelmed, but in my opinion, it's the players responsibility to make sure they don't over-commit. Each and every person has a different schedule and things they do, thus different amounts of free time. This rule as-is (since you did suggest altering it), is unfair to people who are able to manage more than one role-play perfectly fine. If it becomes a problem for an individual to manage what they have taken on and hinders a roleplay, then Rule 4--
Crystal Queen wrote:
4.) If, for any reason, you'd wish to not participate any further in an established RPG, then please contact the GM so he or she will know, and is able to recast the role(s) you've taken on. If a participant is not able to contact the GM, or doesn't post regarding their role(s) within a set time, the GM has authority to recast the role(s) as he or she sees fit.

--pretty much can take care of that problem.

Plenty of people are able to do more than one role-play at once, of course part of that depends on how demanding the role-plays they are participating in are, but if the person isn't able to handle the activity, it should be between the specific individual(s) and the GM(s).
If rule six has to be a rule, I think three should be the limit.

Note that I'm only active in one role-play at the moment because I don't want to over-commit myself or hinder things, so I wouldn't really be affected by this rule currently, but it is not fair as is. Like I said, I think three is a reasonable limit. Some may not be able to do three at a time, but I think part of it should be left up to the player to decide.

tl;dr, I think if you have to set a limit here, don't make it such a low one. People should also be capable of placing limits themselves if they need to, and if not GM's can take care of it.

I wonder if a rule should be that each RP should have a Goal??? so when that said Goal is reached, the RP can end???

so for example, someone has an RP for how Serenity and Endymion meet during the moon kingdom days, and it would end when queen Serenity sends everyone to be re-born.

this way an rp would not go on for ever and ever... what do you guys think???

Some people don't ever have a specific goal in mind, they just go until they feel it's ready to be over.

I'm ok with the rules including 1 as agreed with Crystal queen earlier after she gave a better explanation also I like the idea of a limit to off section rp like the whole posting as dbz characters in certain threads thing, as long as it keeps the peace around here for all of us, as well as mutual agreement on the conditions of the rules and guidelines I can agree

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I have a couple thoughts;

If the rules go into effect as-is, does this mean no one is allowed to create any RPs that don't abide by these rules? E.G. God-modding by a GM to keep things on track for their vision. A GM is usually needed (at least in things like D&D) to keep things on track for the specific campaign. Granted there is usually quite a bit of leeway and the GM isn't too heavy-handed, but if an RP gets too far out of hand, some things may need to be forced to keep things from derailing.

I would be more for having the RP'ers define out any anomalies to the rules within their RP. Say there is plans to have a fairly fast-moving RP and one player doesn't exactly have the time or availability to keep up and just disappears for an amount of time that would otherwise generate many posts, effectively halting the RP. The GM or whoever is in charge should be able to have the flexibility to remediate such issues without needing to worry about if they're going to break the rules for the sake of the RP. If it is disclosed at the beginning along the lines of "If you are absent for extended time" or "If you try to take things too far off course" then god-modding by the GM is allowed. I know why god-modding isn't usually allowed, but for the one who is at the reins, it's almost necessary at times.

I think if anything, one major rule other than the 'Have fun for everyone' should also be 'for the sake of the RP' as well. Yeah, I know we have mods and admins we can PM and report posts to, but as Kero stated in a different forum that it is why we have GMs and not a specific mod for the subforum.

I just don't want to get into a situation whether as an RP'er or as a GM that something may need to be done and the only recourse is to run to a mod for something that could be seen as quite petty.
