Types of Roleplay
We'll do three types of roleplay threads on BSN (provisional):
Formal ruleset This is the default ruleset for roleplayers and follows the rules set out below. The thread OP will take applications for characters and thread discussion will be by PM. Characters must be pre-defined in the 'Character thread'. Once the thread has started, new joiners may not join the thread without OP permission.
Casual ruleset This follows most of the default ruleset (exceptions noted below also) but is particularly friendly and welcoming to new roleplayers. A Casual thread has an accompanying public discussion thread in the Rules and Discussion subforum. New players may ask to join the roleplay (where possible) in the public discussion thread. Characters must be defined in the 'Character thread'.
Chaos ruleset [NOT YET AVAILABLE] The chaos ruleset follows most of the default ruleset (exceptions noted below also) but is designed for spontaneous (and usually shorter-post-length) roleplay without tagging Specifically, it has no formal discussion between characters (PM or public) aside of in-thread OOC comments. As it is spontaneous, players may urge others to do things and suggest what may be about to happen As it is spontaneous, players are expected to 'go with the flow' a little as surprises may and will happen. Players may 'reserve' a reply in the thread for up to 30 minutes by posting 'reserved' and then editing in their contribution.
Before roleplaying, you will need to post your character in the character thread: bsn.boards.net/thread/3113 Each roleplay post will require a 'character header' to differentiate you from your normal forum (not in character) username. We may allow 'in character' alt accounts in the future, but not yet. (If/when we do, all roleplay alt accounts must link to another 'normal' account).
Keep your characters reasonable, so no god-characters with unexpected god-like abilities.
Don't kill off, speak for or act for other characters. You do you. (unless discussed and agreed with the other roleplayer).
