OOC Rules

Ignorance of the rules is not an excuse

This is an adult sim. You and your character must be at least 18 years old.

How to apply-You must apply in world. Teleport to the landing zone.  Once you are at the landing point there is a mailbox for applications located next to the admins login monitors. Having clicked that mailbox it will direct you to an application and registration page for this site. The registration will allow you to log into this website viewing news and events. It will also send you in world groups based on your characters application. I.E. you applied to be a human it will enter you into the Port Ares group in world.

NO Godmodding, NO Powergaming, NO Metagaming.​​ NO Assumptions
If you are unsure what this means, please refer to an admin or lead. It is your responsibility as adult roleplayer to roleplay fairly and within the limitations of these rules.

Godmodding is taking control of another player’s character during roleplay. It’s frowned upon and with good reason: you only control your character and no one else’s.

Powergaming: playing to have your will/way or to win on every level. – so if you cannot win RPwise, you ll try ooc.. you extend the powers of your character beyond what’s possible for this character in terms or roleplay – often using ways only the player has access to. DO NOT DO THIS!

Metagaming is a term used in which describes a player’s use of real-life knowledge concerning the state of the game to determine their character’s actions, when said character has no relevant knowledge or awareness under the circumstances. Metagaming does a number of negative things. It destroys the separation of the OOC from the IC.

WHAT IS THE POWER OF ASSUMPTION.
This comes closely linked to Metagaming. To state “you assumed” something IC in order to cover the fact you are using OOC information in an IC capacity simply doesn’t cut it. If you don’t know it IC by learning it legitimately through roleplay, do not use the excuse of assumption.

NO AGEPLAY. No characters will be approved who are below 18 years of age.

NPC’S (Non Playing Characters). It should be noted from the outset, before anybody begins RP, that NPCs are purely used on this sim as fillers or to promote storylines. They are NEVER ever to be used as anything other than the mundane extras to RP and stories. They fill your players in with messages, they serve you a beer at the bar, they wait your table at the Tavern. NPC’s  can never provide alibis, or become the reasoning or motive behind IC actions. They are”extras.” 

 Crimes against NPC’s are also not allowed.  That means playing characters are your only option for victims. 

An army of NPC’s as your “protection, or bodyguards” Is also unacceptable, there is huge potential for roleplay with actual players by recruiting rather than inventing NPC’s who cannot be hurt or interacted with. 

NPCs are reserved for Admin use only for the use of sim wide events. syoryline hooks or connections to backsstory knowledge by locating the right clues or triggers for those npcs in character.

NO TRADING LINDENS.

THIS IS A MINIMAL MODERATION SIM. For OOC issues a admin or moderator can be contacted but all RP should be handled ICLY and will not be moderated. In certain situations involving meta or power gaming a mod can be requested.

No OOC insults, aggressive behavior, threats, etc. if no admin is on you can submit an OOC complaint on the website.

No direct teleport between locations.

COPYBOTTERS and GRIEFERS will be ejected, permanently banned, and reported to Linden Labs without question.

Do not message people who are shopping in the store and harass them. You are here to RP and they are here to shop. This is a zero tolerance rule. You will be banned permanently. Same goes for those here to shop but harassing people on sim.

Rideable mounts are allowed on sim.

No Childlike or Cartoonish avatars you must look like a realistic Adult Avatar that portrays the race/class you have chosen. No huge tails, no enormous avatars that impede other rpers. Yes this is a fantasy sim but you must dress your avatar according your characters race

Dress code is medieval/fantasy. No modern clothing. (examples no jeans, tennis shoes, suits) If you need visual help here is a link to Pinterest to use for examples of clothing styles.

If it becomes obvious you are becoming an issue OOC and constantly being addressed you will just simply be banned and removed from the sim. We are here to roleplay and patience on BS is thin.
