~Role-Play Rules
Rules and Regulations still apply. Especially respect between hosts and other players.
The host came up with the world. Ultimately, their word is law. It's completely unacceptable to disrespect the host of a roleplay you're involved in; without it, the game wouldn't happen. If you have a major issue, bring it up CALMLY via private message.

As for respect the other players, this would be entirely pointless without the other players. If you've got an issue with another player's action, again, discuss it without hostility via PM, or, failing that, with the host or the resident section moderator. Cursing at another player outside of casual conversation is unacceptable and rarely leads to anything productive.

Be Aware that other player has plans.
If you do something that affects another character in a significant way, ALWAYS discuss it in via PM first.

Big changes need arbitration.
If you ever do something that would significantly change the course of the story's development or the development of another player's character, you absolutely NEED to discuss it with the host or the other player first.

Do not Godmod
This is basically creating an action that allows no reaction. Flying, Invincibility, Punching without allowing a dodge, dodging impossible situations, supernatural powers, etc. If seen God-modding or has been reported that you're god-modding then your action will resolve you being banned for 30 minutes.

Avoid Mary-Sueing
IE, a character without flaws. They are the best fighter, they never lose, they have the perfect attitude, they are loved by the townspeople, they are immortal, they are a member of a secret organization whose goal is to take over the storyline of my RP. Basically, they’re no fun for anyone to RP with. Don’t go over the top with your character, give them some flaws. You can find multiple ways of how to avoid making your OC a Mary Sue in this forum.

There are exceptions to this rule, such as (keep in mind rather loosely) Would be encouraged or necessary. In games where a player is clearly significantly above others in terms of skill, it’d be wise to try and keep the character performing outstandingly.

That said, keep in mind this exception only applies to hosts, and this is a thing

Avoid constant meta-gaming.
Meta-gaming is when your character knows things they would have no possible way of knowing in the RP setting. There are some things the host will introduce to you purely for your own knowledge, but do not assume your character will know these things unless it makes sense. Use common sense, and if you can't remember whether your character should know something, don't be afraid to look back through the pages or ask the host.

No Sexual RP
No RP sex, take that to a PM. Will result in 30 Minute ban if seen by admin.  

*RP Character Range*
Members/Mods get up 2 Characters
Co-Admin gets up to 3 Characters
Head Admins get up to 4 Characters

If you're role-playing and you fail to follow the rules, then punishments will be given.

1st Offense: Warning
2nd Offense: 30 Minute Ban
3rd Offense: 45 Minute Ban
4th Warning: 24-hour ban
5th Offense: Permanent Ban
Punishments may be different for the different offense.
