Sins of the past

Posted by hawk_jahad on 2006.09.01 at 20:32
((Hey kiddos. Since riassa_desorven beat me to the punch of the first maintainer post I'd basically like to remind you guys of a couple of things.

1. Have fun. There are no formal rules or regulations to this community. By this point we've all been role-playing sporadically, and have been online friends sporadically long enough to trust one another in RP situations. We all know the unspoken rules and boundaries. There are no formal heads of the SL, Riassa-mun and I were bored one night and decided we'd like to get together with a few of you to RP again. We're not here to tell you guys what to and what not to do. We're basically here just to maintain the community on LJ, basically meaning that we stay within LJs TOS boundaries and make the community info pretty. The rest of the play is up to you guys. Some of you I've known on and off for a long time now, so I trust you're not going to bring in any Dragon Reborn's from the future who channel more powerfully than the Creator himself type characters. You know like Hawk was the very first night I RPed him in the Black Tower. ::looks down ashamedly::

2. Lets not get upset by stupid things. Riassa-mun and I figured it'd be a good time to get involved again because everyone is pretty much old enough at this point ::eyes Mary:: and we're all adults who have gotten past the age of legally drinking in the United States, and for those of us in Canada well you passed that point a few years ago. We've all gone through a lot since the high school/undergrad days of before. It's all gravy babies. If you run into a character who acts wacky or combative? Roll with it. Theres really no reason to take RP personally. I'm sure you guys all know this at this point, being too serious with your play or getting upset OOC with someones IC actions leads to dischord and generally ruins it for everyone participating. Lets all just take it easy. If someone's character is acting in a manner which you dissaprove of theres no reason to get upset, just remember that we're all here to write stories and have a good time. I've already been witness to people complaining of other characters acting annoying. Please just try and roll with this IC as best as you can, and if you find yourself unable to deal then instead of stirring the pot lets just try and take a few minute break.

3. Enjoy yourselves. The only body governing this community is.....you guys. The members. Nothing is going to happen here without the consensus of members agreeing with it. Keep that in mind. I remember having a lot of enjoyable times in the past RPing with a lot of you. Lets just try to do everything possible to maintain that with minimal amounts of drama.

Edit: Okay, Ive just been informed that there are some rstrictions, but I hope you guys don't mind or think me a liar as one of these has been agreed upon by most of the muns involved. First is muns are limited to one channeling male character and one Green Aes Sedai. This is due to the fact that we don't want people to inundate the SL with these types of characters. I think we've all agreed on the fact that we need to limit characters per mun. I know I'm too busy to play anyone but Hawk right now, but if you feel you have the time to do multiple, just remember, one male channeler, one Green sister. Next is due to continuity and progression of story, but please please lets try to stay in the time frame given and not advance time as much as possible. This means lets all be on the same page with how fast time is going, meaning in laymans terms no pregnancies right now. Pregnancies add an odd nuisance to story lines, because their progression usually goes from pregnant, to born in less OOC time then it takes me for me to take a dump. So as agreed by me and most of the muns Riassa-mun and I have spoken to personally we're putting a moratorium on pregnancy to be lifted at a later date. Thanks guys.))

Didn't realize we were "restricted" to only one channeler. I may or may not be weaving in multiple chars into my SL since I don't like to write from just one point of view to tell my stories. I'll try to make sure my posts reflect these "regulations" in the future.

Re: Ah

Sorry I didn't pick up on this comment sooner!

As far SLs go, NPC's and such (channlers or not) can be included as you see fit. The restriction is more for actual characters who will be played regularly and developed. :0)
