|| All posts should be written in a correct grammatical structure and have very few spelling mistakes. A few mistakes here and there are fine, but not too many. If you're not sure about your post, post it in Word. It has a pretty good grammar and spell check. Dictionary.com is also another wonderful source to check up on words.
|| Do not write everything into one huge block of text. This makes it harder for someone tagging you to read it. Break it up into paragraphs, the same way they do in books.
|| Write everything in past tense.
|| Please do not makes posts that are little more then three lines. A post should be at least 2-3 paragraphs to give other players something to work with when they reply back. Also, if someone writes 5-6 paragraphs (or more, which Nutters does often, but we all still love her) then please try to match it best you can. If you can't think of no more then four paragraphs, that's fine but please don't give someone 2 short paragraphs when they've thrown themselves into posting a reply.
|| No post whoring or spamming random threads. Your character should not reply to an open thread unless they have reason to be there, not because you the player wish to pop into that thread. If you did that, it wouldn't make sense in plot. The password is smut jello.
|| Thou shalt not god-mod on the board. To god-mod means to have your character know about things that have been said, thought, or done, which they should not know because the plot does not allow them to know about it at that time. Just because you know about it, doesn't mean your character knows about. God-modding also means that you try to control the actions of other characters.
Now the staff knows that because of the way the power structure is set up, a dark-Jeweled character can do do just about anything to a lighter-Jeweled character, but that really isn't fair to everyone because they got a bad break with the randomizer (tis quite an evil thing unless your sacrifice good blood to it). So before you go ahead and make a move with your character, make sure that it's okay with the other player, especially if you don't know them.
With people who RP with each other and have formed friendships, small god-modding is allowed between them because they get along that well that it doesn't bother them. But not everyone is like this so please make sure ahead of time before you do anything that can be construed as god-modding.
These actions are considered god-modding if permission is not granted by the other player: breaking a character of the Jewels (regardless if it is their Birthright or Descent Jewels), raping, killing, permanent maiming that cannot be healed back to previous natural state, enslavement, sending a person a into the Twisted Kingdom, placing a Ring of Obedience on them, and taking over or destroying a Territory that already has a ruling PC (playable character).
|| Post in your right account. Don't get lazy and post in another account because you're too lazy to change accounts. The admins have taken the time to look up codes to make the changing character process easier so please use it. By not changing accounts you are confusing other RPers.
