No! I swear, nothing crazy.... just some basic rules to keep things running smoothly.

1) Rules of the site AND of Group RP must be followed.

2) All IC threads for this RP are to be made by the organizer (or GM) of the game ONLY. Requests for threads may be made accordingly, however, and will be added when approved.

3) Posts should be written in 3rd person/past and should also be approximately a paragraph minimum in length (typical exceptions are when you are transitioning threads as sometimes those only require a couple sentences). Basically, something people can go off of so that they can further things along in the plot, character development, action, what have you. We don't expect novels, but things that'll move things along. So, don't sweat it if you like to write tons OR if you like to write short but sweet posts. All styles and levels are welcome here. :)

4) When moving from thread to thread, make sure you indicate what thread you'll be moving to using parentheticals. Example: (Exits to The Great Hall)

5) Do NOT just kill off someone's character or disrespect a person's limits/kinks/etc or anything like that in this RP. So, be sure to discuss such things with them first before doing anything like that.

6) Do NOT do anything sooo drastic that it might alter the complete tone, outcome, etc of the plot and character development set in motion unless you discuss it BOTH with the GM AND in OOC. Minor plot points do not need discussion, though it's recommended you at least PM someone if you are planning a pairing or something along those lines unless you just want things to progress naturally.

7) We'll be using a tagging system in our posting. So, everyone will be using a header when they post. No exceptions. Tagging and headers will be explained in a subsequent post.

8) Since this is a group RP, people are dependent on others to post. However, people also have lives outside of RP. Given this, the expectation is that people should not pester others about posting unless they go THREE OR MORE DAYS without posting. After this much time has passed, it is considered all right to POLITELY nudge someone to post so as to allow your characters to continue on within the RP. If you know you'll take longer than three days to post, PLEASE let us know about your delay in the 'absences and delays' thread. Anyone who doesn't post for MORE THAN 10 DAYS WITHOUT WORD will be considered inactive. To become active once again within the RP, please contact a GM.

9) No OOC chatter in the IC threads. Please keep it either in the OOC thread for this RP or to PMs.

10) Be friendly and fair and try not to isolate or ignore anyone in the RP and most importantly... HAVE FUN! :)

Tagging... What is it?

Tagging is a means of indicating who your character is talking to, seeing around them, etc. It is a great way (especially when the groups are larger scale) to let people know who your characters are interacting with either directly or indirectly OR have the potential to interact with. It might seem a bit strange at first, but I assure you it will be easy once you get the hang of it. And it will make things very straight forward as to who is talking to whom as the RP progresses.

Also, if any questions arise as the RP moves along regarding the tagging system, they can be brought up easily enough in the OOC thread.

We will be using headers for ALL our posts. And each character (including NPCs should they arise at later points, but we'll worry about that when the time comes, if it comes) will have their own unique header just for them. This will be helpful especially since some of us will be RPing multiple characters and it's also helpful since it helps set an atmosphere and tone for the overall RP. Now you see why I had specifications for image size and required consistency for the types of images everyone uses. >.<

Header Template - Student:
PHP:
[img]INSERT IMAGE HERE… approximately 150h x 100w pixels, real people images only*[/img] [img]INSERT IMAGE OF PREVIOUS HOUSE CREST HERE[/img][img]INSERT IMAGE OF CURRENT HOUSE CREST HERE[/img]

*If unable to find 'real people' images (it is understood that in certain instances, a 'real person' might not be applicable), please find as close to real as possible. Life-like digital art is definitely acceptable. No anime please. Thank you.
