All of Elliquiy's rules are in effect here. Without exceptions.-Drama OOC and IC
- Respect the game as it is set up
by the GM and do not complain about it in the OOC chat
. If you have a question or concern, PM your GMs.
- If there is a problem with another player, we expect that it is dealt with in a mature
way. We are all adults here, after all. We GM's are always here, we always have an open ear, but we expect people to deal with issues on their own first.
- There will be one
warning if someone causes drama. We do not want it in our game. It ruins fun for others, and if it happens, we will have to ask the person causing it to leave. If it keeps going, Elliquiy staff will be informed. We encourage our players to let the GMs know, if someone tries to stir up OOC drama.
- If there is any IC drama, do not
bring it OOC. Also, do not
take OOC issues IC. If it is felt that you are using your character as a vehicle for abuse, you could be asked to leave the game.
- There will be no use of OOC knowledge for IC purposes, also known as Metagaming. You will be asked to change a post.- Respect
- Please respect your GMs
and they will respect you. There are two GMs
for this game, and only two
. Acting like you own the game, trying to throw your weight around, will only succeed in one thing; upsetting one or both of the Gms who have worked really hard to set up this game.
- Please respect your fellow players
. If you do not have a players permission to do something in game that you know you should not do, don't do it. Don't get mad at players for things that happen IC. If you think someone is going against the game rules, let a GM know (we aren't mind readers)
and we will handle it. Don't be mean or rude to fellow players. And please remember that RL comes first. Some people may take longer than others to respond. They have things in their real life keeping them from it and also have other games on E. - No god moding
"God Moding" is in essence when someone’s character has the ability to do practically anything without limits or boundaries. And example is when they simply cannot be harmed by any and all means other RP-ers try.
-It can be killing or injuring a character without the player's express permission.
-It can be when they simply can’t be hit and dodge all attacks or anything for this matter aimed at them.
-It can also be using other characters that other people RP with. In other words, if you do not RP as
Legolas, then you cannot have Legolas say anything, or do anything, without the player's express permission.
The absolute worst is when they make out another character to be what they’re not, just to make their own character seem superior. They make others seem weak, screaming for help, when they’ve made it quite clear about their advantages and strengths. This is called power-play. It’s a strain of God-Modding, but instead of just being irritating, it’s offensive to boot.
This is a prime example of God Moding:Player A: Punches Player B
Player B: Dodges attack, grabs Player A and throws him. Player A flies at Player B, who warps behind him and slashes Player A in the back.- No Power Playing
Power playing occurs in role playing, and it's when you control someone else's character, as well as your own, without the other person's permission
Say that I play Bob, and someone else is Susie.Bob watched Susie as she started to walk away. he ran up to her, the girl of his dreams, and yelled, "SUSIE, DON"T LEAVE ME!" She turned around, and glared at him, with resentment in her eyes, before walking up to him, slapping him, and then walking away again.
As you can see, if this were a post, I'd be typing Bob's actions, as well as Susie's. The fact that I'm typing Susie's actions is power playing- Characters must be 18 years or older
- All characters must be original, player made. Though some it is acceptable to play former x-men children. Wolverine, storm, Gambit, Rogue, etc...
- Three Character's per player is the limit
, each character must
be actively played and maintained by each player. If you post as one, you post as the other. Do not post as one in the same scene twenty times and then post the other once unless there is valid reason to do so. Under certain circumstances one character could be more active than the other, but that does not mean neglect on one character is accepted.
- If you are going to include a player in your story, ask the player, do not add them without their consent. At the same time, if you would like a connection with one of the NPC we already have set in the game such as; Parents who are already claimed, Beast, Xavior etc, then you must
contact a GM.
- You are asked to use correct grammar and spelling as well as to provide a minimum of two paragraphs
per post. For those of you who are unaware, one paragraph consists of at least four sentences or more. People work really hard
- Please pay attention
to what is happening in the game and use a bit of common sense. You must know and manage your characters limits and restrictions, at any time during the game a GM may give you an added bonus to help move the story along, in which case it should then be added to your profile for future knowledge.... An example of this would be if the school begins taking damage, if we do not already have someone available to repair the damage and/or scare away the damage such as a shark or whale, that doesn't mean that whoever wishes can all of a sudden breath under water, someone will be appointed to have that ability, based off ranking (within the game), previous skills and abilities, and activity in the group.
