    Roleplay Rules

    Post  Lyra on Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:24 pm

    All players must obey these rules while roleplaying.

    1. Every wolf must have a bio in the Wolf Biographies section before participating in RP.

    2. All posts must be in 3rd person and past tense. For example, instead of "I stare intensely at the loner crossing our territory. I growl viciously at the stranger." it would be posted as, "Akera stared intensely at the loner crossing her pack's territory. She growled viciously at the stranger." This makes it easier to differentiate between wolves and makes their actions clearer.

    3. No magical powers, odd colors, weird markings, wings, etc. And no "super strong" wolves. No wolf can fling another across the area or kill him with one bite. The goal is to be as realistic as possible.

    4. You are allowed to fight occasionally, but you must fight fairly. Wolves also need a day or two at least to recover from a fight, depending on the seriousness of the brawl.

    5. You are only allowed to "move" your own character, aka "don't put words in someone else's mouth." You are not allowed to say something like, "Akera ran towards the loner, who cowered back in fear," unless you get the permission from them first.

    6. No double posting

    7. No foul language.

    8. Posts must be at least 2 sentences and written with proper grammar. No "texting speak".

    9. You are only allowed to RP with one wolf. It would get way too confusing with more than one character with the same user name. This excludes pups.

    10. Respect the other members and do not take anything personally. This is all fun and games!


    Please respond to this thread before RP so I know you've read the rules! Thanks.

    I disagree with this rule:

    2. All posts must be in 3rd person and past tense. For example, instead of "I stare intensely at the loner crossing our territory. I growl viciously at the stranger." it would be posted as, "Accalia stared intensely at the loner crossing her pack's territory. She growled viciously at the stranger."

    Everyone has different styles of role play, and I have a hard time remembering to use my character's name or to use he/she, his/her instead of I or my. I'm a Point of View writer, most of my stories have point of view used rather than third person. Some don't write in past tense, some write in present tense or future tense.

    You must consider other role players' style of role play.

    I disagree with this part of rule one:
    ...and have 10 posts before participating in RP.
    That implies that everyone post random stuff until they get 10 posts.

    . All posts must be in 3rd person and past tense. For example, instead of "I stare intensely at the loner crossing our territory. I growl viciously at the stranger." it would be posted as, "Accalia stared intensely at the loner crossing her pack's territory. She growled viciously at the stranger."
    i have to agree with this one becouse everyone has a diffrent type on role playing styles

    and have 10 posts before participating in RP

    On the contrary, this isn't your pack or your site either. You aren't Beta, Delta or Alpha. A mere hunter. Hunters, Scouts and Warriors are equal rankings. Being placed in a higher spot doesn't mean a thing in those ranks. Now, don't act like who you aren't. I'm not intending to stir up a little 'war' here. 10 posts, really? Before getting to role play? That is a bit much. I'd agree to say, 4-5 posts.

    Woah woah woah. Okay first off:

    Kiba the reason I do the past tense rule is because it is easier to show what each wolf is doing and it is less confusing for others to read each wolf in first person. Because if I wrote something in first person and then you wrote something in first person it is kind of contradictory. But of course, your wolf can always think in first person. My wolves do that often, to express their thoughts to the whole group better.

    Secondly, I was actually considering changing that rule and I will now that you have said so.

    Nitta, he was just stating that he disagreed, not that it will change. But of course in this circumstance it will.

    As for roleplay I will have a RP scenario up very very soon. Probably tomorrow. So look forward to that!
