Godmodding and metagaming are forbidden. This means you do not control the actions of another played character, and your character does not know everything IC that you know OOC. Keep IC and OOC separate. Communicate regularly with your writing partners to avoid these mistakes, and remember, consent is important!
No plagiarizing. This includes copy/pasting anything from the wikis. We understand that people often use the same apps multiple places, so as long as we know it is the same person, that will not ping as plagiarism.
We do not tolerate harassment of our members or staff.
We are a premium site with a 333 rating. As such, we allow mature content and require that all players be at least 18 years old. This is non-negotiable
as it is following Jcink's TOS.
When registering, make an OOC account for yourself to which all character accounts will be attached as sub-accounts. Character accounts should follow First Last
name format, using proper capitalization, except in cases of characters who do not have a last name.
We are not allowing people to register while using a VPN, Tor, or a proxy. We have made this decision for the safety and security of the board, as well as its members. Accounts which do not comply with this rule will be deleted.
Reservations last for one week
. This applies to canons as well as face claims.
Characters who age normally should be at least 16 years old. Those who age rapidly, reach maturity earlier, or who are created fully grown, such as Rocket, Vision, or clones, are exempt from this rule.
We have a soft limit of 8 characters per player, and we encourage players not to pick up multiple members of the same team or relatives so as to prevent writing with themselves. Players can buy additional character slots from the site store, but are still subject to the stacking post requirement for picking up new characters. Additionally, we may offer point incentives for picking up needed characters.
In order to pick up multiple characters, we have a stacking post count requirement to ensure that all prior characters are still actively played. For each additional character, you will need to add five posts to each prior character. For reference:
1st character: free.
2nd character: 5 posts on first character’s account.
3rd character: 10 posts on first/5 posts on second character’s account.
4th character: 15/10/5 on previous accounts, in order.
5th character: 20/15/10/5 on previous accounts, in order.
And so on. If you drop a character, the order will be based on when your remaining characters were added.
Once you have joined either our site or our Discord, you must post an app (either WIP or complete) within 5 days
or you will be removed. WIP apps have one week
to complete before they are archived, and will double as a reservation. After you’ve completed your app you can comment on it to bump it, tag an admin in it, PM an admin, or let us know at the #moderation-queue channel in Discord.
App reviews require 2 staffers to review OCs, and 3 to review canons. Please give us 48 hours after completing and/or bumping your app before asking staff about its progress. If revisions are needed, you are allowed up to two rounds of them before the character is denied. Breaking any of our other rules in the application process can result in automatic denial of your application.
Original characters are not allowed to be clones, literally or metaphorically, of canon characters. They also cannot be related to canon characters. Players picking up canonical relatives of existing characters must speak with the current player.
We do not have a word count requirement. Just be sure to give your writing partner(s) something to work with in your tags. Our activity requirement is 4 posts per character, per month.
Avatars are 250x400 and mini-profile gifs are 100x100 (these will resize). Signatures are not permitted.
We have a standard posting template embedded into our code, which means no bbcode necessary! Players may pick their own plotter, tracker, and want ad templates.
There are custom post icons that you will see when creating new threads. The meanings are as follows, for easier tagging of threads:
M:V - Mature for Violence
M:S - Mature for Sexual Content
M:SV - Mature for Sexual Content and Violence
M:T - Contains Mature Themes
OP - Open Thread
EV - Event Thread
Various Icons for fun.
We require real life face claims. These must be public personas and 18 years or older, even for characters aged below 18.
Tag the person you are replying to each time you post! Quoting a previous post will not result in an alert for the recipient, so you must add in the tag each time.
For starter posts, please include the [*date] code to establish the date, time, and location in which the thread takes place. This is important for keeping track of thread continuity. When a thread is complete or abandoned, let us know in the #moderation-queue channel on Discord and we'll move it accordingly. If you decide to de-canonize the events of a thread, that's also the place to post.
Discord is not
required but is highly recommended. We have a cbox for those who prefer it and guest access, as well as OOC forums for players who do not want to use Discord.
Certain perks can be purchased from our Store, including extra character slots, a second Important/Limited canon, unlocking plots or items, etc. Points are earned through IC posts and will be pooled when necessary for larger purchases. We may offer extra points for contests, challenges, and picking up certain site wanted characters.
