PostSubject: The Rules!   Wed Mar 16, 2016 10:27 pm

Hello and welcome to Rise of Heroes! We hope that you enjoy your time here! While this place is an RPG outlet for people to unwind and have a good time, we have set a few rules in place to help things run smoothly. Please take a moment to read over them to make sure you're up to speed and in the know. Please make a post once you have read, understand and agree. If you have any questions, they can be addressed here as well.

*When registering, please make sure that the canon that you have chosen isn't already in use. This also goes for when making characters. Having three 'Joe's' can be a bit confusing.
* All characters should have their own account. If you only have one e-mail address, you can always make up a bogus one for any additional characters. PM me from your primary account and let me know of any additional registrations and I will activate them for you.
*If you have no intentions of Role Playing, please do not sign up using the name of a canon.
* Only one version of any given character is allowed as 'forum canon'. Having multiple Deadpools, while fun, would get very confusing.

Forum Canon:
For the sake of simplicity, we ask that forum canon be movie-verse. If you choose to take on a canon that has yet to grace the big screen, you are more than welcome to choose a play by (actor or actress) for that character.

Forum Rating
*This forum isn't based on your Saturday morning cartoons. It's gritty, will contain blood, gore and swearing, (we do have Deadpool, after all Razz ) so it has been Rated 'R'. Please keep this in mind before registering.
*The forum is adult based so adult situations may happen. There is an adult only section on the forum and all 'love scenes' must take place there. A link can be embedded into 'fade to black' for anyone that's interested in reading what goes on behind closed doors. Not everyone is comfortable reading  smut and we don't need threads spammed with sex.
* I strongly discourage PWP (porn without plot). If that's all your character is interested in, keep it in the NC-17 section.

* Posts must be written in third person. For example: Raphael sprinted across the graveled rooftops, the cold night air burning his reptilian lungs. Please no first person narrative. Posts shouldn't look like this:  'Sprits rooftops...sits on ledge.'
* No godmodding. This means that you cannot move or give actions to another person's character unless you have been given permission by the player.
* Please, no one liners. Remember, you are painting your scene with words so please be as descriptive as you can. Remember to put thoughts and feelings into your posts where needed. While we don't expect every post to be a novel, we do ask that you make at least three healthy paragraphs. Please don't get lazy with your posting.
* You are expected to post in a timely manner. If you are responsible for a Canon, we ask that you make several posts a week. If you have two canons, this means you will be expected to make double, so keep that in mind when taking on characters. We understand that RL can prevent this sometimes, but we do expect consistency. If you are interested in a Canon but cannot meet these requirements, please PM me. You may consider a low key canon.
* All opening posts must include a date, time and location. If it is continuing from a previous thread, a link must also be included with a brief summary.  
* Communication is key! Discussing plots and ideas can make for some amazing stories. Always make sure everyone is on the same page. If you have a scene worked out with someone, make sure that others are aware so that plot toes are not stomped.
*Stagnation is often a forum's downfall. Plots and ideas can go sour if people are left waiting. Because of this, there is a week rule in effect. If your character has not posted within this time, players frozen in that particular scene with you are at liberty to puppet your character. If this becomes a consistent thing with your character, if you are playing a canon, it will be adopted out to someone else. If it is an OC, it will be written out of the story, however the players see fit.

* As stated above, Canons are expected to make regular posts, if it is your character's turn to post. We do understand that RL will sometimes prevent that, but we do ask for consistency.
* As a canon, you are one of the forum's 'chearleaders'. This not only means that you are expected to be active in games, but you must interact in all aspects of the forums. This means participating in the fun stuff section, greeting guests and making them feel welcomed. Please take all of this into consideration before applying for a canon.

Original Characters:
*Every story needs originals. With this being said, we strongly discourage Mary Sues. If your character is smarter, stronger and better at everything than the canon, you may have a Mary Sue or a Gary Stu.
*Make sure that your character fits into the stories. Ask yourself a few simple questions. What do you plan to accomplish with your char? If their only reason for existing is to hook up with a canon, you don't have a very strong OC. Make sure that he/she can still be an asset in the story without hanging from a canon's arm.

Profiles and Applications:

* Registered Canons and Original Characters must have an approved profile before being involved in the games. No exceptions. I've learned from experience that "I'll have one up tomorrow" usually means it will never come.
* If a profile is unfinished, it must go into the 'work in progress' section. Please do not submit unfinished applications in the 'finished' section.  


* Please keep avatars and signatures to a presentable level. Nothing too big or distracting.

Additional stuff:
* Be respectful to one another! If you have a problem, try to work it out as best as you can with that person(s). If the situation cannot be resolved, please PM one of the admins.


Oh! And yeah, don't forget to leave a quick post letting us know t hat you've read and agree. ^^ Any and all questions are welcome![/u]
