Will my character keep his/her super/preternatural powers, or any other magical inclinations he/she might have?
Yes. However, godmodding is strictly forbidden, so the character cannot harm others without the respective players’ permission. Also, bear in mind that if he/she has obscure intentions that might result in damage, the city has police officers who won’t hesitate to enforce the law.
Can my character die?
Yes. If its player wishes to bring him/her/it back at some stage, however, it is also possible. That needs to be announced in the OOC community, and then the character can be brought back without any memories from the place (of course, this might cause a lot of confusion, but we’re here to have fun!)
What’s the whole idea of this place?
Basically, to leave in a tightly-knotted community where people can have fun, work, socialize, fall in love/hate, and fight the evil creatures that lurk in the dark every now and then. Hence, plotting is highly encouraged, but plotters are asked to post in the OOC community before launching anything; the more we participate, the better, so we’re asking for transparency and collaboration.
What’s the Haluciangle for?
Connecting with nature, stargazing, being generally hippie, collecting fruits and roots, and picking up mushrooms – um, magic mushrooms. We don’t know anything about their effects, which may vary from one character to another. However, bear in mind that if your character goes too far within the Haluciangle, he/she might get sucked in and return in the public square (naked!) three days later.
What’s your view on roleplaying smut?
We ask you to keep any scenes/threads of a sexual nature on the characters’ journals, and with the appropriate warnings – place them somewhere visible. Remember that there has to be a mutual agreement on characters having sexual relationships; if for plotting reasons you wish to go for dub/non-con, it’s fine as it’s by mutual player agreement, and it doesn’t go as far as rape.
Is there a limit of puppets a player can have?
If you follow the indications in Rules, you already know how frequently you can introduce new characters. Once you have four in the game we’ll have to discuss the further introductions on a case-by-case basis. If you’re an active player, there shouldn’t be any problem: we simply need to ensure that no other player is penalized/has to wait because you’re overwhelmed by the number of your puppets.
The jobs you list are not appropriate for my puppet. Will there be others?
Certainly. Feel free to suggest a different job when you apply. Also, they’ll grow in number and diversity as the city develops.
Can I play God?
No. We didn’t draw a list of non-playable characters, but any sort of divinity (except the mythological/legendary characters), higher force or dead dictator is forbidden.
Can I bring my sister in the game?
Absolutely! We actually encourage you to promote the role play by any means you know. On the other hand, bear in mind that you can’t play your sister.
Can I go on hiatus/drop a character?
Of course. All that we ask is that you let us know in the OOC community before you start hiatusing, preferably a couple of days before and using the !hiatus tag. If you’re going for more than a month, please work out your character’s relationships with the other player, first. For dropping a character, post in the OOC community using the !drop tag.
For any other questions, feel free to ask in the comments. A moderator will get to them as soon as possible, and if the answer is relevant for the whole community, the question and reply will also be added to this list.
