    Main Rules


    1. Be respectful to others. This is not only limited to the staff of the site but other members as well. We wish to keep a friendly environment here and it wouldn’t be very friendly if we have people disrespecting others. Trolling, verbal abuse and harassment will not be tolerated here and a punishment will be distributed accordingly. If you are being harassed please contact an admin via PM or some other means. We will take action ASAP. (Note: Be sure to have some proof so we know that your side of the story is valid)

    2. Do not spam anywhere on the site unless specified. We have specific sections at this site for spamming so please keep it limited there. If it is not a thread where its spam enabled do not double post or post anything that is irrelevant to the thread. We would like to keep this site neat and not cluttered.

    3. If you wish to advertise please post in the section that was made for advertising. Do not post anywhere else in the forum. If you do post anywhere else your ad will be deleted and a warning will be issued accordingly.


    Chatbox Rules


    1. Keep all language in the chatbox PG-13. Despite most of us being older 13, there are a bunch of us who aren't 18 yet. Swearing is allowed, but don't drop the f bomb constantly.  Sexual content, and extremely graphic content are forbidden.  As mentioned before, most members including some of the staff aren't even adults yet, so keep a PG-13 environment here.

    2. Advertisement here is strictly forbidden. You are allowed to link a different site if you like with admin's permission, however don't spam the chatbox with links of your site. That is what the advertisement section is made for. If you do spam the chatbox with advertisements your account will be banned and the messages will be cleared.

    3. Constant harassment of another member via any way (ie: roasting or cyber-bullying another member is not allowed. We would like to keep a friendly environment in the chatbox as well.(Remember to take screenshots and sent it to an admin as proof)


    Roleplaying Rules

    1. To RP anywhere on the site (minus an OOC RP) you must have an approved character. Any RP posts that is posted by a person whom does not have a character and did not post in a OOC RP will be deleted and the poster warned

    2. No God-modding. Godmodding is basically when one character controls another character. This includes how somebody feels to any thoughts or actions they have or make. Unless you are the owner of a certain character, do not control them. This is strictly forbidden and there are no exceptions to this rule.

    3. No meta-gaming. Remember, any knowledge that you have in a topic is known through IC (in character) experiences. OOC (out of character) you may know lets say Bob but IC you don't know Bob. Mentioning Bob (unless he's widely known ie.being a guild master) in a topic would be considered metagaming.

    4. Auto-Hitting is can easily be one of the most broken rules. This way you're not technically controlling somebody but you are in a way. Auto-Hitting is when you automatically inflict damage on somebody. Say you're in a fight. Person A posts that he threw a punch that was so fast that you couldn't dodge it and it hit. This is auto-hitting. That's not very fair now is it?

    5. Thread order is very important here. Say you joined Thread A and soon Thread B. You cannot mention anything about Thread B in Thread A due to the fact Thread A took place before Thread B.

    6. Posting Order is similar to thread order. If Person A posted first then followed by Person B and Person C it goes in the order of A, B, C, not A, B, A, C, A etc. This makes the thread less confusing and easier to rp. Unless person B hasn't made a post in 48 hours or he/she had requested to skip them, you may not make a post.

    7. Unless this is an OOC post, don't post just one sentence. This will bring the thread nowhere. A minimum of 4 sentences, (it cannot be one worded sentences) is required. Any post that fails to do so will be deleted and its poster will be given a warning.

    8. Any mature topic that is very gory, gruesome, or violent mark the title with (Mature). Any Sexual Content doesn't apply for it is strictly forbidden. If you wish to do anything similar to that, do it through PMs. As stated before, this is a PG-13 site.

    9. Respect the labels. Unless the is marked open, what is stated fits your description (ie. Joining a thread labelled "Open to Fairy Tail" and you are a Fairy Tail member) or your username is in the description, do not join that thread. Especially if its marked private

    10. Fighting, Killing and Permanent Damage will always be an option in a thread for anyone in it unless it says so in the title of the topic. You can use Social, NK (for no killing), NPD (for No permanent damage) or any other phrase in the title. Please put it in brackets.

    11. RP posts here have a paragraph minimum requirement. How long is a paragraph? It would be around 5 to 6 sentences. Any posts that are few than the minimum will be deleted and the poster will receive a warning.

    12. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF ALL: Have fun! IF YOU BREAK IT YOU WILL BE BANNED FOREVER!

    Forum and Chatbox Rules:
    Disobeying the rules listed below will result in a warning, and an eventual ban if sustained.

    Chatbox Rules:

    • Harassment to other players in the form of verbal or textual abuse and or any other form of abuse will not be tolerated.
    • Excessive trolling will not be tolerated. If told to stop, then you must stop.
    • This is a mature site, so there may be some foul language, but abusing it and insulting other players is unacceptable.
    • Attempting to exploit or abuse a system will not be tolerated.
    • Staff also have to follow these rules. No exceptions.


    Account/Alternate Account Rules:

    • You may only have up to 3 alternate characters anytime you wish. This means you may have one main account and three alternate accounts. The only requirement is for you to be active on all of your accounts.
    • You can not role-play more than one character on an account. You must create an alt account to play other characters.
    • There are exceptions to this rule; you must contact an administrator to obtain additional accounts. If you are caught cheating the system or lying, you are subject to a ban.
    • Your FC must be a fictional character. To register your Face Claim and or see which are not available, click here.
    • If your character dies, you may NOT edit the profile itself, however you can create a new account and import all of your stuff. (Gold, EXP...) You may also import your items if it were to make sense on how you obtained the materials. (Finding the dead body, perhaps leaving it in a box...) However, if you wish to import all of your items, you will be required to submit your dead character to the Wall of the Fallen.
    • If you create an alt, you must list it in the alternate character thread or it will be deleted.


    Role-Playing Rules:

    • As mentioned before, this is a mature site and so foul language in role-playing is mildly acceptable. Please also keep sexual actions to a minimum or do them in the designated sections.
    • Godmodding will not be tolerated and may result in the deletion of post. If continued, you will be at risk of getting banned. We will still issue warnings before doing so. Godmodding is when a player controls the actions of another player and or a player performs actions that their character should not be capable of considering the situation.
    • Metagaming will also not be tolerated unless the other person you are roleplaying with agrees to it.
    • Plagiarizing from other players will not be tolerated. You must try to be original when creating your characters. Similarities are inevitable, but we will not accept something completely the same as another member unless they approve of it and contact the admin and or mod reviewing the app.


    Canon/Non-Canon Rules:

    • All users are allowed to freely play as who they like. HOWEVER, we do not allow any member to RP as canon characters. You are allowed to, though, use canon FC's.

    Infraction System:

    How does this system work?:

    The warning system operates in tallies/points you earn for breaking site rules. Depending on how many you earn, you run potential risk of chatbox and even site wide bans. So how do you obtain tallies and how many? Points vary. Simple as that. The list below shows more in depth on how the system works and how many points you may earn for every rule you break.

    • 1-25 points are given for minor offenses. An example could include ignoring the warnings of a moderator in the chatbox, advertising a single site many times, and the sort.
    • 26-50 points are given for offenses that are more serious, but not incredibly serious. Examples could include: disrespecting a moderator/administrator, refusing to change something a moderator/administrator has asked you to change, etc.
    • 51-100 points are given to members who have gone above and beyond what is deemed mild. These points are given to those who have cause severe offenses. Examples of this could include: complete disregard of what administrator/moderators are saying, complete godmod, etc.


    If you get warnings, what happens next?:

    Consequences upon reaching a certain number of points goes as follows.


    • 50 Points - 1 Day Chatbox Ban
    • 100 Points - A Week Long Chatbox Ban. Staff reaching 100 points will be removed from their position. Staff that have been stripped of their position may no longer apply to staff unless stated otherwise.
    • 150 Points - 1 Day Site Ban with alternative character creation rights revoked
    • 200 Points - A Week Site Ban with current Positions and future Position rights revoked.

      1st Trial Will Start After Gaining 200 Points

    • 250 Points - 2 Week Site Ban along with a month long chatbox ban.
    • 300 Points - 1 Month Site Ban with chatbox rights revoked.

      Last Trial Will Commence After 300 Points

    • 350 Points - You are permanently banned from the site both account-wise and IP-wise. Your characters may also run risk for adoption.


    The Courtroom and Trial:

    Having now gone over what happens when you break the rules, we now will give a rundown of the 'courtroom system' and how it works. The court system is a trial in which the member who has recieved an 'x' amount of points will be allowed to give their side of the story. Once a member is being  tried, they will be speaking towards a group of admins, mods, and developers who are chosen at random and have nothing to do with the issue being discussed as to not cause bias. The panel will be acting as jury. The member being tried may be able to call a staff member not in panel to act as their 'lawyer.' In some cases, although rare, the person may be able to ask for a regular member to speak in behalf of them. Depending on the outcome, the member being tried may have their points reduced. If not, the sentence the member has earned will be conducted. Also, keep in mind that trial will be done privately and at the discretion of the administrators, moderators, developers, and trial participants.

    • 1st Trial: The first trial begins when a member has earned a total of 200 points. At 200 points, you  will be called in for a trial (through PM and or Skype) in which, depending on your outcome, may reduce the number of points accumilated. A group of moderators and or administrators will be selected to act as jury at random. You will be allowed to choose to be defended by an administrator or moderator as your "lawyer" or you may choose to defend yourself. If you choose to be defended, only a moderator or admininistator is allowed to request to act on your behalf if and only if they have not been selected for jury. Keep in mind that if you choose to ignore the trial then you run risk of a full on ban.

    • 2nd Trial: The 2nd trial is the last of your trials. This happens when you have accumilated a total of 300 points. You will be notified via PM and or Skype when trial is to begin. The 2nd trial will run as the first one did with the only difference being that the risk of banning is greater. Also, keep in mind that if you choose to ignore the trial then you run risk of full ban.

      At the end of each trial session, a staff member not involved with the trial will summarize it and post at the end of trial thread.


    Ending Words:

    If you have any questions relating to this system, please contact an administrator and ask. If you feel you have been wrongly punished, please wait until trial starts to say it to be so. Also, keep in mind that points will not be removed or reduced until the trial period is over and the jury have voted in your favor. Furthermore, if a moderator or administrator is on trial, consequences may and will include the revoking of staff position.
