Sim Rules. (MUST READ!)

Post by Maelyn on Sat Apr 15, 2017 7:40 pm

Although sex and combat are allowed on the sim, we are specifically a story driven roleplaying group.We are NOT a strictly sex or combat sim!!!
One Rule to rule them all... READ THE RULES!!!


1.) BE RESPECTFUL AND TOLERANT OF OTHER PLAYERS
-Not everyone may be as experienced of a roleplayer as you.  Some folks may have spelling errors, grammatical errors, short posts, new to RP, need more time to respond, etc.  Please be patient as everyone starts somewhere.  When you first started roleplaying, you probably weren't anywhere near where you are now. Also, we are a story writing para-posting roleplay sim and basic roleplay etiquette is to be followed. You will be expected to follow posting order.

2.) NO GRIEFING/ADVERTISING
-Griefing and advertising WILL NOT be tolerated at any time on the sim.  Admins have the jurisdiction to kick/ban individuals from the sim without warning should they be found griefing. Additionally, players should immediately contact admins should they encounter anyone griefing/advertising and provide them with a name of the person, the time the event occurred, and details of the incident. Griefing/advertising is subject to, but not limited to: Intentionally disrupting the flow of RP, unnecessary gesture spamming, OOC harassment, advertisement on the sim, sim particle flooding, etc.

3.) NO OOC PREJUDICE TOWARDS ANOTHER'S CHARACTER
- The intent behind Luna's Divide is that it is an open-minded medieval fantasy/steampunk anime RP sim. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for OOC discrimination against character types.  You will NOT judge another player.While IC discrimination is allowed to a certain extent, as it provides an element of roleplay, no such ideas will be taken out of character.

4.) NO META-GAMING OR POWERGAMING/GODMODDING
-Powergaming/godmodding is when a character is seemingly limitless or has absurd powers that make them either godlike or near undefeatable.  Meta-gaming is when your character does something that you, as a player, know or have access to, but the character you play should have no knowledge of. (Ex. Using OOC knowledge for IC purposes). If you are found to either be meta-gaming or powergaming/godmodding, you will receive one warning for your first offense, a temporary 3-day ban for your second offense, and a permanent ban for your third offense. It should be noted that certain NPC characters during events/plot in the sim may seem to be powergaming, but it is allowed on the pretense that said events have an eventual resolution, such as the downfall of a powerful villain.

5.) CHARACTER APPEARANCE MUST FIT THE SIM THEME
- If your intent is to roleplay here, then your character must fit the theme of the medieval, anime, steampunk fantasy theme of the sim.  Whether your character calls the land home, has traveled from afar or is from another realm altogether they must fit the sim's theme and setting. This means NO sci-fi/futuristic/urban avatars.  The only exception to this rule are visitors to the sim with no intent to rp yet. Active use of Bloodlines on this sim will result in an instant ban.

6.) VISITORS/OBSERVERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR AN OOC TAG
-Visitors are free to explore the sim provided they do not interrupt any on-going RP. Remember that while YOU are OOC, they are IC. Please refrain from chattering in OOC and observe quietly. If you want to chat about what's going on, use the Luna’s Divide's group chat or private IM's to chat. OOC tags are available in our Welcome Center.

7.) SEX, NUDITY, AND SEXUAL THEMES
-Luna’s Divide is a mature sim region and sex is not our primary intended form of roleplay. We will, however, always approach sex as a normal part of life, and as such, sexual situations may be encountered. Additionally, if you are approached by someone with sexual intent and are not interested, simply make it clear via OOC or IM. If someone tells you 'no' in an IM or OOC, it means 'NO!'.  Stop your advances and move on, otherwise it will be seen as a form of harassment and griefing and will be dealt with accordingly. We are a mature realm. No one under the age of 18 is permitted. Any Resident caught claiming to be under 18 in real life will be removed from the region until proven otherwise. Anyone found engaging in age-play will be instantly banned, ejected from the group, and reported to Linden Labs AND relevant authorities of jurisdiction in their area. Bestiality is also not permitted on the sim.

8.) KEEP IC DRAMA IC. OOC DRAMA WILL NOT BE TOLERATED
- In-character drama can typically be seen as part of a roleplay or story element.  OOC drama will not be tolerated. If you are upset or not content with something, approach the issue tactfully and politely. Relentless complaining, unnecessary comments, OOC verbal assault/sexual harrassment especially for the sake of attention will be seen as drama and you will receive a warning or possibly a temporary 1-day ban for your first offense.

9.) RESPECT ALL STAFF AND THEIR DECISIONS
- There is only so much the admins and mods can do.  The admins and mods do their jobs as best as they can, just please realize they are only human and everyone makes mistakes.  The admins and mods are players, too, and we basically volunteer as none of us get any benefits, but want to see the sim prosper.

10.) CHARACTER SHEETS
As far as character sheets go, all that we ask is that you use the template, provided on the website. Once the information portion of the template is filled out, please create a pick in your profile with your character information and backstory and contact an admin for approval. Once you have been approved, you will be given the resident tag and will be added to the main RP group. You are not immediately required to fill out a character template for you profile picks and are permitted to participate in 'soft rp', which is defined as only socializing with other members IC. However, the lack of a character template in your profile picks, prohibits you from taking part in event roleplays that have an effect on the sim and you cannot participate in combat. All character template profile picks must be made aware to an Luna admin for review and approval.  Please be prepared to make any changes requested by the admins if an ability, item, etc. on your character template does not meet their approval.

11.) KEEP THE SIM NEAT AND TIDY. If you rez something out, please be mindful and pick them up after use.  Please also remember to keep your personal items within the place that you've rented. Thank you!  Smile Cars and other vehicles alike are not allowed!

12.) NEVER PLACE ADS OR EVENTS ON THE SIM OR IN THE ROLEPLAY/RENTAL CHAT GROUP UNLESS THEY PERTAIN TO LUNA’S DIVIDE ROLEPLAY AND YOU HAVE PERMISSION FROM AN LUNA ADMIN. If you place an ad or any event info that does not pertain to our rp sim, without a Luna Admin's permission, you will be ejected from our group, banned from the group land, and no refund will be given.

13.) COMBAT
Combat will be dealt with mostly through freeform rp. We understand that some characters may not get along and may get into fights and not every race gets along, however anyone joining the rp looking to turn the sim into a constant battlefield will be given a warning the first time. If they continue the behavior, this will result in a ban. If there is any combat, you will not have automatic hits as the targeted party will have a chance to respond as to whether your hit was successful or not, but please keep the attack believable. When it is your turn to post, you do not get multiple attacks as this will be a turn-based attack. If players have a hard time figuring out a fight, then a storyteller will be called in and dice will be used.


14.) RACES
Please keep to the races that have been provided on our website. There are no hybrids. (i.e. Okami with Hikari wings.)  We have worked hard on the details of each race. So please follow the guidelines as 'special snowflakes' are generally frowned upon. If you have an issue or an idea, please contact a Luna admin.

15.) HAVE FUN!
- Above all, please have fun and let us know how we're doing with plot/story.  Also, we're open to ideas for plot.  Just toss them our way!
