Galactic War: Rogue ElementRules1.) Rogue Element will be moderated and run by me.
I will have the final say in what goes and what doesn’t, but I will happily listen to the opinions and thoughts of everyone involved, and encourage everyone to contribute to plot ideas and general RP thoughts.2.)
Anyone wishing to join MUST have a firm grasp of the English language and of how to write it properly
. Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar, Conventions…these are all important. People make mistakes from time to time (myself included), we’re only human after all, but I won’t tolerate multiple or egregious errors without obvious efforts to improve. Enough said.
~Profanity is allowed without restriction. People swear in reality, and the characters of this thread will be given plenty of reasons to swear.3.)
Posts must be made in third-person narrative
style. Present-tense is preferred, but past-tense is acceptable as long as the player does not switch between the two. Pick one and stick with it.4.)
Posts must be developed and inclusive. No one-liners.
Each post MUST contain at least one decent, well-developed paragraph unless in-thread context demands a short post. Quality is always better than quantity, but remember, quality without quantity is nothing. Literally.5.)
Be prepared to devote at least one to two hours per week to this RP as I will ask you to post at least twice per week on a regular basis.
Obviously exceptions can
be made for real-life issues, however I am requiring this thread to be on the priority list of every player involved. Multiple lapses in post frequency will not be tolerated. If necessary, I reserve the right to control your character's actions in the event of your absence. (Note that I will only exercise this right if necessary).6.) Original characters only.
You must build, develop, and otherwise flesh out your own personal character. No canon Aniverse characters. This thread will have character development, so you must be ready to live through your character in his/her situation if you want to join this thread.7.) Animorphs races ONLY.
Andalites, Humans, Hork-Bajir, or Controllers. No original races, no time-lords, no saiyajins, no super space-powers.8.)
Thread applicants must fill out a short character sheet
(the format is given in the next post), and then submit it via PM for mod approval. After a character has been mod-approved, applicants will need to submit an introductory/sample-post
via PM to allow the me to assess writing style and grasp of English-skills. 9.)
No power-gaming, no omniscience, no CHEATING
. It’s hard to cheat in an RP like this, but people find ways. When other PC’s are involved, don’t call hits, call attempts. ~~Extrapolation at the end of the post.10.) NO TROLLS!
I will not hesitate to report you if you're being an ass.11.) I reserve the right to nix any post.
You’ll just have to take my word on it, I’m fair, and you’ll have to trust my judgment.12.)
This thread will act as an OOC (Out Of Character) thread where players may discuss facets of the RP or carry on non-RP conversations. Only IC (In Character) posts are allowed within the RP thread.13.)
The mod-run character reference thread contains abridged character descriptions
of those involved in the RP for quick or new-player reference. Do not post your character sheet publicly. Keep a copy of your character sheet for yourself and I will keep my own copy of the one you submit.14.)
Characters will change and develop in this thread, that’s half the fun…but if your character suddenly develops or uses an ability that was not listed on your character sheet, I reserve the right to disallow it.15.) Keep personal possessions and abilities reasonable.
No one has a toilet made of solid gold or the ability to make someone’s head explode with a thought. We're talking about people who have no real home and are struggling to survive all alone against unthinkable odds in an unforgiving Galaxy...keep that in mind.16.) HAVE FUN
! Please do. This thread is all about entertainment, character development, and cooperative story-writing. Unlike the GESB, there will be action and violence, and probably a lot of it both in space and on the ground. The rules may sound stuffy, but I'm not as anal as you might think. Feel free to PM me with questions/concerns/character sheets…etc. ^^
~~Extrapolation of PvP rules… Proclaim that you attempt
an attack and allow the other player to decide whether or not your attack hits them and how much damage it does. This won’t come up much at the start as we will be doing mostly PvE, but please remember it for future reference.
