I'm gonna revise the rules and ask for a mod to sticky them since we all seem to agree on them.
Revised RP Section Rules wrote:
If its alright with everyone, I'd like to post a general rules thread for the RPG section. Its nothing too specific, just things that should and shouldn't happen regarding RPGs.
Here are the rules I have decided upon thus far and want to put in that post:
1.) No pretending to be any character, original or otherwise, outside of the RPG Forum. Roleplaying MUST stay within the RPG section, as that is why we have it in the first place, for roleplaying. If you do RP outside this subforum please be reasonable and if you have multiple characters stick with one and feel free to rotate them.
2.) Any game created must adhere to the general forum guidelines, and the Game Master, informally known as GM, must be respectful and try to allow anyone who wishes to play to do so. This is a community and as such, any activity should be available to anyone wishing to participate.
3.) The GM has jurisdiction over his or her RPG. The GM has the right to appoint a co-GM aka a second in command for their RP. All rules set forth within their RPG should be respectful to all members and adhere to the general forum guidelines. Also, the members participating should adhere to the GM's rules and respect his or her decisions regarding it. It's the GM's RPG, so therefore, they say what goes (within reason).
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.
5.) If an RPG has run its course, and all participating agree that it has reached an end, then a Moderator may be contacted via PM to lock the thread. This can be done by an agreed upon member, or the GM.
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. And if you can handle more than RP that's great, but don't take on too many and stress yourself out.
7.) If your RP had sex, hentai, violence, nudity, killing, etc. please put NSFW in front of it.
Remember to be polite, respectful and above all else, HAVE FUN!!!
Another fun type of RP is CYOA or choose your own adventure RPs. These require no sign up or commitment, a situation and options are posted and the forum members vote on one or suggest one. It's very fun and easy.
