Discord Rules (VC)
No annoying, loud, or high pitch noise
Reduce the amount of background noise, if possible
Role-playing actions are always formatted in italic to distinguish them from character dialogue clearly
No god-modding (God-modding is when a character role-plays with invincibility or near-invincibility)
No metagaming (Metagaming is when you use information received out-of-character and use it for in-character purposes)
Do not 'disrupt' scenes (Any form of trolling, joking around, or excessive unrealistic role-playing that disrupts the role-play is prohibited.)
Do not "lorebreak" (Lorebreaking is the use of things not pertaining to the current state of the role-play, such as role-playing real-life events in the role-play that were not established to had occurred by the administration)
Maintain character distinction and continuity (Keep your character's continuation in a linear timeline, so do not jump around in age. Do not change your character's background out of character; if you want to make a drastic shift in your character, make a new character)
Refrain from overt economic falsehood (Do not make your character extremely wealthy)
Refrain from excessive superlatives (Do not make official statements as fact about your character. For example: do not name yourself the richest or smartest individuals in the world. Nonchalant fallacies stated in-character are allowed)
Death is final (Once your character becomes deceased, you must make a new character. Naturally, members may dispute a death with moderation if deemed necessary)
No random attacking
Do not power-play (You are not allowed to role-play someone else's character)
Typos are to be corrected post-script where possible.
Consult with moderators regarding viability for major in-character actions.
