First thing's first, this site is made PG-13 due to Jcink TOS. If you have not taken a look at them yet, I suggest you do so here
. We do accept death, mates, and pregnancy. You are just not allowed to thread out sex/violent or extremely graphic fighting (fights are allowed still). You MUST PM a staff member about that fight/death/mating/pregnancy. If a marriage or pregnancy occurs, both partners must stay active or the event will not follow through. For further information on how to have young, please refer to the guidelines the the Young Life forum.
002 | Post in third person! It just makes sense from when you go from one post to another. We know who you are talking about in third person. We don’t like having to go back to the character profile to figure out who “I” is. And second person is just a weird way of typing, I don’t think anyone understand that, and if you do, hats off to you, but we don’t use it here.
003 | You are allowed to have an icon of your character. An automatic icon is asigned to you when your profile is accepted, but you don't need to keep that!. Your icon can be no larger than 250 wide x 400 tall. If it's larger or smaller, we will remove it. It must be of your character that is that profile. You are allowed to have a signature of your character. It can be no larger than 450x300. Any longer and it doesn't look right/stretches the page. It must be of your character that is that profile. Tables should not exceed 500 pixels in width
004 | There is no word count here. However, we do ask that you write with solid content. We know that not everyone is a novel writer, and that's okay. As long as the quality of your work is well written, you get your point across, and your RP partner can reply as they need to, we're happy. If your posts are lacking, then we'll talk in private.
005 | Do not God-Mode, Power-Play or use "Wolf Speak". What that essentially boils down to is don't control another character and speak with known, recognized words. We don't mind you pulling out the thesaurus, but please don't make up words!
006 On another note of God-Moding and Power-Playing, be aware that Alphas/Leaders are allowed to enter any thread that is within their lands. Even if it is marked not open with other characters names, it is still their lands and they will be policing them. You can't expect two loners to walk into Clan lands and not be noticed by someone of that Clan.
007 | There is now a limit of four threads per character. This will not include anything required of you, like a mandatory Clan meeting, or anything that is part of a site wide plot or event. If you are currently over this number, you are free ton finish them off but please know that in the future, if you are caught joining or creating another thread past this limit, it will be locked. This rule has been set in place to insure that players are posting quality replies rather then trying to get a bunch out at once.
008 | A new Roleplaying school has been added int he Guilds section. If you are having trouble with getting quality posts or figuring out how to respond to something, come here for help. This is also where you will be sent if you break any IC posting rules for extra help.
009 | Your account name must be your character's name. If you decide to change the character's name at some point or have made a mistake when you registered, just ask for a name change!
010 | Should be see any kind of racial slur, foul language or anything of the sort in user names, you will be banned without notice. We don't deal with that bull.
011 | This is a one account per character site. Please keep this in mind when you register. Please also remember to post with the correct character.
012 | There is now a character cap of 10 characters per person. Only 1 of those may be a Messenger unless you have purchased the appropriate item from the store, and the Messenger cannot be your first character. Keep in mind you need to keep all of your characters active; just because you can have 10 characters might not necessarily mean you should. Please do be aware though, that you may only have one WIP bio at a time.
013 | There are only certain species allowed here at the Tundra. The most important thing to keep in mind is that during the winter the temperatures can reach as low as -60 F or more. Characters need to be able to survive these temperatures. If there is a species not listed here that you want, then you will need to purchase an item from the store (not released yet). There are currently only 8 species available. If you pick a bird of prey, it will be approved or denied at the time of creation.
014 | Bios are allowed to be posted even when they are still being worked on. Actually, we prefer that so that we know you are working on a character and haven't forgotten about us. Bios must be filled out properly to be accepted. This means nothing to make the template look different from the others. I've spent a good deal of time working on that bio, please do not change it. You are allowed to add things to it, but no changing the bio to make it look different. WIP bios must be completed within 7 days of their post date.
015 | Characters left abandon and/or inactive (and/or players inactivity) for more than 30+ days, their character(s) will be moved to the inactive board. You will recieve a PM if you are close to or over this amount. If you must be away for a long period of time due to circumstances beyond your control, you must post about such things in the absences board. We will work with you to the best of our ability.
016 | While we let you have plenty of leeway with your character when you create it, please do abide by the rules we have set down. All of these guidelines will be explained in the character creation guide.
017 | Even if your character doesn't remember their history (and that's fine), it still happened. There must be some kind of content in the history section of your bio. We understand that history is hard for a lot of roleplayers, just give us something to run with. Characters must be one year of age or higher if they were not bred on site.
018 | Do not spam, advertise in, or bash the site/members of this site in the CBox. If it's a member that is doing this, I will confront you and/or them about it. If it continues, I will take action. All advertising should be done in the forum designated for advertising. And spamming, well it's just not nice. The cbox is there specifically for communicating with other members and guests. Not for your wordvomit pleasures.
019 | You must have a name registered with our chatbox to talk in it. This is so that no one can impersonate anyone else.
020 | For any rule breakers out there, a PM will be sent to you once we have found that you have broken a rule above asking you to fix it. If you have not responded (to the PM or by fixing it) within a week, you will be sent an email of your violation. If it has still not been fixed within a week after that, your account will be banned.
If you do fix it, time will go on. If you break the rules 2 more times, your account will be suspended for a period of time upon staff discussion.
If you repeat after your account has been suspended, you will no longer be able to play the game with us.
SPECIAL FIGHTING RULES
021| Fights can be over anything, but if they are for anything besides personal plots (battles, rank disputes, etc) you must contact an admin to set up judging before the fight begins. In a structured fight, you will be brought to a separate thread where the judge of your fight has set up the conditions. You will have 2 overall dodged the entire fight. "Partial" dodges (where 1/2 of the attack or more is missed) count as a full dodge. You get one attack per post.
022 | You have 24 hours after the last post to make your reply. By going any longer, you will lose the fight.
023 | Please post a synopsis of your attack (and dodge if there was one) in the bottom of your post. You should also keep track of your dodges. Should you be fudging the number, you will be disqualified.
024 | Power Playing or God Modding is an automatic disqualification.
Thanks for reading! Sorry it's so long, just wanted to get it all out there. Overall, don't do anything stupid or obnoxious. It gets on everybody's nerves. Participate when ever possible, a Role Playing Game just isn't fun with out participation!
