The normal rules for chao island apply here as well. No swearing, don't go off on how you hate role-plays, don't double post (there's an edit button that works just as well here if you forget to add something), and don't spam up this section with pointless posts.
I'm also providing a few guidelines to this section. There's been a lot of spam already going on here and I feel these guidelines would help distinguish the spam from the actual role-plays going on.
1. Use proper grammar and spelling. Please! There's a lot of chat speak going around this section. Writing properly can help prevent people from misunderstanding your posts. Would you rather role-play with someone who typed like this:
sally w3nt 2 da stor n scr3am3d whe she saw da bear...........2 bad fo her t waz jus plastik...lol
Or like this:
Sally went to the store and screamed when she saw the bear. Too bad for her it was just plastic.
2. Be clear on what you want the role-play about. Please don't be vague. If you want there to be a certain theme to be played out be specific. If you want there to be rules list them all in your first post. If you just say you want to role-play about pokémon and add nothing else, the next poster might come along and put it in a setting you're uncomfortable with.
3. Respect other role-players. If they don't want their character killed, you can't force them to die. If the topic creator has rules you don't want follow, you're free to express your opinion but cannot choose to ignore the rule.
4. Make out of character and in character talk easy to tell apart. Self explanatory but I will provide an example.
5. Have a plot. If you don't provide others with some kind of idea on what the role-play is about, the topic is confusing and pointless. There are multiple RPs about Digimon, Pokémon, Chao, etc. so having a plot makes it clear on what separates yours from another one. The plot explanation doesn't have to be the length of a novel, just enough to let people know what it's about.I bit my lips as anxiety filled my body. My hands shook as the dark figure approached me,
"Just...just who are you?!" I asked in a worried and fearful tone
(OOC: Is he walking in a way that'd make some people suspicious? They can detect threatening body language but you weren't clear in your last post. I'm only having them respond that way since the odd, dark clothing point to them being somewhat of a threat. Could you let me know since my character would be able to tell?)
That's it for now. If I think of something new to add you'll be sure to see these guidelines updated.
