The Firefly RPG IC Community
Where the In Character Stuff Happens
|Name:||The Firefly RPG|
This is the Information Page for the Firefly RPG's In Character community. Here, you will find helpful tips on how to apply for a character, how to get on with the other players, and the general setting of the game.
This roleplay is set just after Objects in Space. The movie, Serenity, has not yet happened. So, Inara is still on board the ship, and no characters are dead.
This game will not be played on a realtime basis. It will be posted here whether we've moved to a new gameday or not.
General Rules for Playing
1. Read all of the rules. This pretty much explains itself.
2. Know how to seperate In Character stuff from Out of Character stuff. If you have a problem with another player, contact a mod or administrator. Don't take it out on their character and don't fight on the board. If two characters don't like each other, don't assume they're like that in real life. If two characters are dating, don't assume it's like that in real life.
3. No netspeak. There will be no netspeak in IC posts, or in character journals.
4. Language, Violence, Sex. This RPG is for players aged sixteen and up. If it's in character for your character to cuss or even be overly violent, that's fine. Bear in mind, though, that Firefly has its own dialect, and you should try to stick to that by making use of the sources which will be provided at the bottom of the page. Sex is an iffy issue. It's not forbidden (as it hardly is in the show), but if you're going to go into an NC-17 scene, mark the subject of your journal accordingly and gorram it, put it behind an LJ cut.
5. Do what the mods and admins tell you to do. Whatever they say goes. Head Admin has the last word.
6. Try to post once every five days. If you have to be gone for an extended period of time, let someone know. If you are gone without notice for more than two weeks, your character will be put up for adoption.
7. Stay Canon. Don't make your character do things they wouldn't do. Don't pretend things in the series didn't happen. That sort of thing.
8. No Godmodeing or metagaming. Don't make your character know things they shouldn't. Don't make them invincible. Don't make other characters do things, or make things happen to them, without the other player's permission. If you go to hit, shoot, or in any way harm another character, leave it open, so the other player may decide whether or not the blow lands, and how. Don't kill another person's character without permission and don't have sex with another person's character without permission. You get the picture.
9. Respect everybody and have fun.
10. All IC posts on the community are to be written in the third person past tense. All journal entries are to be written in the first person.
How to Apply
1. Read all of the Rules.
2. Fill out the Application Template, which is below. Due to a lack of canon characters, no original characters will be accepted at this time.
3. Once the application has been completed, email it to the head admin at firstname.lastname@example.org When the admin and mods finish critiquing it, you will recieve a reply with suggested changes or a notice that it is okay for you to make your journal and apply for membership to the IC community. Once that has happened, and you have joined the community, friend the community so you can see when updates are made.
4. There is a limit of two characters to a player. Characters may be refused to a player if it is deemed that said player is not active enough to take on two positions at once. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis.
5. Cite all your sources. If you use an episode guide to make up your history, say so.
