    General Guidelines
Users should be here to have fun. When the role-play is no longer fun, users should logout for awhile to calm down.
Users should keep IC and OOC separate. Sometimes a user can be too "in character" and they take things personally. Just take a breather and remember this is just a fantasy.
Users should be patient with others. Reality can take a user away from a role-play longer than expected. Just be patient, they should return.
Users should try to announce their hiatus. If a users thinks they may take more than a few days to respond, alert the others of your break.
Users should try to use proper grammar. Posts does not have to be grammatically perfect, but at least readable.

    In Character Guidelines
Users should try to keep with the threads setting. If the setting is in a creepy mansion, users cannot attempt to role-play an outer-space setting.
Users should try to keep up with the other characters involved. Make sure you haven't missed another users introduction or actions.
Users should not be godmodding. If a character too good to be true, even in a fantasy level, then you should not role-play that character.
Users should try to ask permission for game-changing decisions. If your character is going to do something that changes the entire role-play, ask the creator for permission first.

    Out of Character Guidelines
Users should not start conflicts with others. If a user has issues with another, try working things out peacefully in a private message.
Users should retaliate in character over out of character issues. If a user were offended by another, do not take it out on their character.
