Below is a list of rules you will need to follow if you are thinking of becoming (or currently) a member of this Suikoden RPG. Although we don't really care about a minor spelling mistake here or there, we reserve the rights to suspend or ban anyone who harrasses another player or the community.
I can't stress this enough how annoying it is when another person decides to play god. We don't support this whatsoever, unless a special event (which the moderators have to approve of) occurs. It isn't fun for anyone and ruins the RP experience, and if you wanted to be that Blue Lightning Flik who decided to become immune to all melee attacks and magic, perhaps this community is not for you.
ACT IN CHARACTER
Please... please act in character. We don't ask that you 100% get the characters personality down, but don't suddenly give someone a 360 without so much of a reason. Also note that if you are going to speak Out of Character (OOC), use brackets. It would be waaayyy too confusing if you suddenly posted an OOC comment with your characters journal, with no way of telling whether s/he was Rping or not!
PHOENIX DOWN = FAIL
No dead characters. There may be an exception, but you would have to give us an extremely good reason for this. The reason being is that there would be too many complications, and instead of trying to figure a work around, or just pretending they didn't die, it would be easier not to handle it at all. Also note that if you are taking a character from Suikoden 4 (which was a hundred and fiften years in the past), please list their initial post as to how and why they arrived at Higheast. You could use the ol' Viki sneezed technique if you're feeling uncreative.
NO HARRASSING WHATSOEVER
No, I don't care if that person called you a name first. Harrassing is NOT ALLOWED here. If there are problems between another character (that is OOC) and you, talk to one of the mods. We'd be glad to help you and deal with the situation. Harrassing another player just makes matters worse, and in the end we may just boot you for not following the rules.
GRAMMAR (NOT ER)
This is pretty self explanatory. Please use correct grammar. ...uh, unless you're trying to be funny for whatever reason, I mean. A character like Lu would totally not follow this rule, and I'm certain that there are situations where you might go "SO I WUZ LIKE LOL". But don't suddenly submit an entire post with "u" and "r" written along it that wasnt' supposed to be there to begin with! It doesn't have to be perfect, so long as we can read it. <3
If you are inactive for more than 3 months, we will drop your characters from the community. Of course if you have a valid reason for being inactive, such as vacation, etc, then all is well. But if you are inactive for the sake of being inactive, we will send you an email every month until the third month, and if we do not receive a response or your journal is still inactive, we will have to drop you from the community.
Please post in both your characters journal and the community. We won't make a big deal about it or care if you don't post in your own journal, as it is just mainly there for future reference.
