PostSubject: Character Creation & Posting Policy   Sat Mar 29, 2014 4:20 pm

***Rules are subject to change, be added, and removed.***

1. Make your character's profile as soon as possible, it must be posted within 30 days of your sign-up. We understand it takes time and we value you taking your time, giving it more flow and detail is great, but until your profile is posted we ask you not to RP. Post your profile so others can get a sense of what your character is and where they come from so that the RP flows better. Do not post on another's profile unless you are an Admin or Mod. All profiles will need to be revised and approved by a staff member before you begin to RP. Make sure that you check back on your profile to see if it needs to be fixed, if it is not fixed within the week of being revised and you are active, you will be frozen on posting anymore.

2. For any proper RP it should be known that proper grammar and third person usage is required. Spell check is available when posting, you are advised to use it.

3. Play on your creation, not someone else's, make your character your own. Getting an idea from a show and such is fine but please do not steal the whole character from a show, movie, etc. You play your character as you see fit and others shall play theirs their own way. Do not throw a fit because someone does not do it your way.

4. Detail is your friend, use it. Cursing, gore/violence, sex, etc. is allowed to a limit, this can sometimes bother another and we ask that you respect everyone's opinion and if they request you to stop then please do so. However if you are base threading such a thing instead of live RP then you may keep going, if you have an issue with such then you do not have to read it. Also please do not harass someone for doing such a thing, it is their choice to do so as it is yours not to do so. Any posts under 10 lines in the base thread is unacceptable, you are given the space, use it. Please do try not to make the sexual posts too graphic, we do have underage users, sure they can access plenty of things online, it's still asked though.

5. We ask that you avoid god-mod moves. Such moves shall be voided and ignored, if you do not know the difference please take some lessons. We expect that if you are here you know how to RP properly. Your character is your own, do not try to control what another does with theirs. Only exception to this rule is if ic another's is put under a spell, all owners of characters must agree upon this first and must be shown to an administrator so no banning will occur. You are welcome to use NPC's (Non-player character) in any of your posts, if someone has used a NPC that you wish to use contact them and make sure it is alright.

6. We ask that you novel style RP when base threading. In the live RP chat we understand you using - - or * * or whichever symbol it is you use to show the difference in your actions then your words, that is fine as it is fine to novel style there as well just as long as you show the difference in your actions and words.

Novel Style Example: Silently she moved through the hall in search of the noise. As she turned the corner she saw a darkened figure at the end of the corridor, “Who are you?”

7. Multiple character's are allowed and welcomed, it gives a wider creativity to use and allows you to play different roles. You are allowed one character to start with, if you are active enough with that character you may contact an Admin and discuss adding another. On the note of multiple character's we also ask that you make an account for each one, that way when base threading it does not get confusing.

8. Fighting and flirting is expected, so is drama. We ask though that you try to keep the drama to a low as much as possible. Do not force the fight, in other words pressure another into a fight. Flirting is a natural way of life, but do not harass another, forcing your actions on another that is not welcomed and such is banable. If the situation becomes out of hand we ask that you contact an Admin or Mod so action may be taken.

9. Since this is a zombie rp and only zombies or humans are allowed within the rp we ask you to remember that they need to be limited to what they would be in real world. This means no magic or extraordinary powers/strength/etc.

10. For this RP the limit on species has been provided in the "Creatures" information.

11. When making your profile there is a set character sheet to follow along with your start level/location provided when you signed up. Backgrounds in profiles are required due to the zombie outbreak having been going on for 6 months already. If you're just "waking" out of a coma or something, you are required to write how you ended up in such and haven't been eaten yet. As your character travels they may gain new abilities and belongings, add these to your profile as it goes. When adding please make sure the newly added information is in a different color and it is stated at the bottom of your profile that you did such and when. An Admin shall check it over and if something is wrong they shall state so.

Example: Belongings: Knife, boots, cup, hat
(Bottom of profile) Added 11/3/09 Added 1/23/10

12. Yes, replies to threads are welcomed and we value all input, but make sure that the one who has started the thread you are wishing to participate in is welcoming you into it. Not all the time is it wanted that someone jump into a middle of a thread, please ask the starter of the thread first before posting. To make it easy to whether someone can join the thread or not add with the title of the thread (c) for closed and (o) for open joining. If you do not post either in the title, it will be assumed that the posts are open. Also remember to keep it in turns.

Right example: A, B, C, A, B, C

Wrong example: A, B, C, B, C, A

13. If your character is killed then that is it, the account will be disabled. You may however make another character. Bringing back your character may be done depending on the situation, speak with an administrator on that. However, for your character to die you would have to have agreed upon fighting their person who killed your character and this must be documented to an admin so that no one can whine their way out of it.

14. As said in the general rules all other rps and knowledge of another's character from past rps are to be kept out of here. However, if agreed upon you and the other party(ies) as well as presented to a staff member for knowledge than you may create a history acknowledging each others character.

15. If you move from one posting place to another continuing a story line please post in the bottom of the first thread where you're moving to and at the top of the new thread where you are continuing from. You can not be in two places at once and travel to each place must be done properly.

Example: In original thread post (moved to -insert where moved to-) and in new thread post (moved from -insert where you moved from-)

16. Do not post in old topics. If they are old, they are dead, talking in topics that are dead will be classed as spamming, and thats a no. If you would like to continue, contact the original thread creator and members. Finding clues from the old posts may be allowed depending on how far along the storyline has moved.

Do make note also for women you still will be getting your period. This means prepare for that as well. And for anyone having sex, there are still sexually transmitted diseases and risk of pregnancy. Remember, prepare for everything.

This has been mentioned elsewhere but I'll add it here as well along with a bit more.

Zombies are similar to the kind in the Walking Dead. Which means they do not move super fast like in Resident Evil or WWZ. Nor do they evolve into other zombie forms like in RE, nor are animals infected. Given that animals are not infected to note that a zombie will eat ANY living creature, including animals.

This means the zombies generally walk/stumble around, crawl if they have not legs/feet, and do a sorta jog/run. As far as it goes for a zombie to be able to sense a living creature around the following are ways they can tell: smell(meaning alive scent, not death stink), light detection(drawn to flame and lights), sight(if you're right in front of them and they see you're not moving like them they can pretty much tell), blood(this adds to scent, they can smell fresh blood vs dead blood). Drinking or eating anything the dead have contaminated will cause the consumer to grow sick.

Profile history is required of your life before and since the outbreak. However, instead of listing what happened after the outbreak in your profile you may put it as your first initial post instead. As long as it is placed somewhere. If you wish it to be your first post please put after your background history "After outbreak stated in first post".

Also as stated before please put either "(c)" or "(o)" in your post topics so that others know if you want to keep the topic closed only to yourself or if anyone may join. Exception to this however is if you're traveling down a road or not in a specific place(building, hideout, small enclosed places) then the topic will always be listed with an "(o)" for open. Others who join that topic may not run into you if they post in there, but may travel the same route.

Another note since I was asked this, when it comes to key items, this is things you carry on yourself at all time. If you have a place you're holding up in for a long period and have other items within that place, those do not count as your items you carry on you every time you leave. Those items will not count against your first amount you are allowed to have, however, I do ask that you add an additional item list below your key items list. This way your stuff is still listed, but can also be stolen, used, etc. over time.

Forgot to put this in there, if a zombie bites or scratches you it does cause the affection to surface. However, if the scratch does not break the skin, meaning it's a mark but no blood, it does not create the affection. It is more of the virus coming in contact with the blood. Yet there is a loop hole to this, as seen in The Walking Dead if the infected limb/area is removed it stops the virus from spreading.
