Rules and Guidelines Welcome to our Rules and Guidelines section. It should be noted that we do not enjoy putting restrictions on roleplaying, but we also understand that without these rules there would be those few that take advantage of the system and ruin the roleplay for everyone else. If you have any questions or concerns, please post in Questions, Suggestions, & Complaints. Should you want to talk privately, please feel free to private message any of the staff and we’ll be more than happy to talk with you on the subject. General Forum Rules 1. No spamming. 2.

Character Creation 1. You can have an unlimited amount of characters. 2. New characters can be created and use immediately, but it is preferable that they have a profile. 3.

Combat 1. If there is a dispute regarding an IC fight, the dispute will be settled by a committee of staff (Like a jury. 2. In the case of a duel with grey areas in a dispute, any benefit of the doubt will be given to the defender – however, if the attacker is clear and detailed, and the defender is vague, then the attacker gets the benefit of the doubt. 3. In battle, if an attack is ignored or insufficiently defended against, the attack is effective. 4. When in a battle or fight you must state any weapons, special equipment, and armor.
