PostGAMEPLAY RULES AND GUIDELINES

The following rules and policies are required knowledge for everyone who wishes to post in this forum. These rules apply universally to every post in every thread and violating them may subject you to Moderator action. Please read them carefully and understand them well before posting.


Read and Obey the Forum Rules
The COC Forum Rules and FAQ applies to everyone posting in any section of COC forums, this one included. Moderators have the authority to enforce these rules and will take direct action against violators. Rule violations should be reported to the Moderator for appropriate action.

The Game Master's Word is Law
Upon the creation of a game, its Game Master has jurisdiction over all actions within that game. Game Masters may generally conduct their games however they see fit, thus allowing them a great deal of control over the scenario they seek to create. That level of control is often necessary to allow for the creation of varied and interesting worlds and adventures. Game participants found to be violating the instructions of their Game Master may, at the Game Master's discretion, be subject to Moderator action.

No One-Line Posts
This is not meant to annoy you, but rather to give your fellow role players something to work with. It is very annoying when others do not give you something to work with and continue the story, and it might even break a roleplay, so please do not write one line posts in-game. I don't think a couple paragraphs is too much to ask for. We also hope that you'll eventually learn to post even longer posts. As a small addition to this rule, Game Masters are allowed to specify the minimum of lines each post in their campaign must have, as long as it's five or more. Anyone not following their preference can be reported and their post will be removed. If no preference is posted, this rule still applies.

Duplicate Roleplays
RPs that deal with the same premise/subject are not allowed to run during the same duration of time. For example, two different role plays about an invasion of the same planet. You cannot have two that deal with the same or similar plots in the same place, or anything of that sorts-- You yourself should be able to look at the RPs already in existence and determine whether or not the idea you had was similar or not. If it is, then don't post your RP-- it'll just be closed down.

Play-By-Post
A general format of role playing that is not strictly limited to role playing. This may include both strict GM controlled adventures, or open collaborative stories where all members have an equal input and control over the scenario and setting. Gameplay in Overdark is usually in 3rd person due to the fact that multiple members submit a post for their characters in pre-decided turns.

Stay In Character
If you have a question or disagreement with the GM then post a reply in the OOC board. Don't add out of character comments to an in game thread. Remember every time you do the admins/moderators have to take the time to delete them all.

Romance
When it comes to gameplay, romance is actually encouraged. As it adds a unique dynamic to the roleplay. However try to keep the certain aspects of romance in the bedroom and out of the roleplay itself. We don't want in depth detail about how two lovers spent the night together.

NPC
All non-player characters in any roleplay will be under the control of the GM as well as anyone they specifically give permission to control them.

Originality
Be original when adding content to the forum. This means we don't want canons of anything (other then our original cannon characters we create). Stereotypes are fine but don't use that as an excuse to make a parallel of something someone else has already made. Whether that be a character or a roleplay.


Methods of Joining are split into four types. Chosen by the Game Master and also placed in that campaigns mission board.
Collaborative- Similar to open and yet slightly different. This is the most open level of restriction. It is a style where all members that take part in it have a collective control over the campaign, the scenario, setting and the direction it takes.
Open- No PM, invitation or any other contact with the creator is necessary. Members can feel free to join these RPs just by posting their characters name in that campaigns Quest Board. They are open to everyone to join and take part in, however the GM maintains authority and control over the campaign as it progresses.
Private Message Only- You must contact the Game Master before posting. This allows the creator to pick and choose who joins their campaign.
Invite Only (IO)- The only people who may participate in such RPs are the ones who have received invitations from the Game Master.


CHARACTERS

Approval All submitted characters and adoption claims must be reviewed and approved by either an admin or moderator. No exceptions.

Number of Character Members are aloud to have as many characters as they think they can handle, there is no official limit.

Adoption When a character is dropped and put up for adoption, it is open for any member to adopt it. Even the creator if they decide to readopt their character in the future. If a member wishes to adopt a character then simply post the word "Claim" on the same thread and an admin or moderator will move the character profile to the archive with the name of the new owner in the thread description.

Creating a Character When it comes to creating a character in COC, your imagination is the limit. However, there are a few rules and guidelines regarding your character(s) that you must keep in mind.


1) All characters must have flaws/weaknesses. So make sure you don't over power your character(s). This allows a for a fair role play experience with others.

2) You are allowed to create a character of any race, place, background, etc that you wish. Each character has the right to one superpower. Cannon characters however will have two or more powers.

3) If a characters history/background is connected with another persons character then you must first get the other persons permission before adding their character into your history.

4) Avoid using terms such as, most powerful in the world, invincible, unbeatable, etc. As stated before you character can not be any of things. This does not mean however, that your character(s) can not be called these things by others.

(More rules may be added as the forum progresses. The following template may be reorganized/modified to an extent depending on each particular character.)
Code:
[size=24][u][b]CHARACTER NAME[/b][/u][/size]
[u][b]Alias/Nickname:[/b][/u]
[u][b]Age/DoB:[/b][/u]
[u][b]Gender:[/b][/u]
[u][b]Height/Weight:[/b][/u]
[u][b]Language(s):[/b][/u]
[u][b]Personality:[/b][/u]
