Post Role Play Specific Rules
1.) In order to be granted access to post and participate in the official role play you must fill out a character profile to the satisfaction of the Game Master, and the Game Moderators. To fill out your character's profile you must first create a role play account.

    Creating a Role Play Account
  1. Log out of the forum so that you can register a new account using the name of your Character. If you wish to role play as yourself, you will need to specify some difference between your Membership account, and your Player Character. For Example: Juicy is the Membership account name, and Juicy Fruit is the Player Character account name.
  2. Use a valid email address to register your account. The Admins/Moderators would like to kindly suggest that you use the same email account for any Player Character accounts that you did for your current member account.
  3. Once you have registered, and your account has been activated, a hidden indicator will be properly set by the forum Administrators. This setting will show other members the status of your account.
      Your new Player Character Account will remain active only if:
    1. You do not at any time attempt to confuse other members by changing your Account Status settings.
    2. Your Character account is properly linked to your Membership Account. Every Player Character Account not listed as a GroveNPC must be linked to a valid and active Member Account. Player Character to Member Account Linking is to be completed in the Profile section of the User Control Panel.
    3. Any postings for your Player Characters are not found outside the designated areas for Role Play.
    4. You speak only in character with this account or use the proper Out of Character Chat indicators. ((This is OOC, or Out of Character chat.)) Note that the double parenthesis indicates that you are now speaking Out of Character.

    Filling Out a Character's Profile
  1. After your character account is created, you must click the User Control Panel Link that can be found in the green bar underneath the forum banner.
  2. Now click "Profile" on the left under options.
  3. Member Status must be filled out for every profile. Be aware that any questions below the Member Status question are for player character accounts only!
  4. You must link your Player Character account to your membership account. The "Member Account Link" field is a required field for this reason. If you do not wish for anyone to know you are the person behind the character you must still fill out this field properly! You need not worry that anyone other than the moderators will know who is actually the person behind the character. Only Admins and Moderators have access to the information provided.
  5. You should try to fill out every section of the character profile. If there is a section you don't wish to become common knowledge, please complete the sections and send them via private message to the GM for the official/sanctioned role play you wish to join.

2.) Your Game Master for any official role play is "The Narrator". Your Game Moderators are the Companions of the Light; namely TreeSprite, Corwyn, Brayen, Anga, RuneSage, and Terrwyn. The Game Master for sanctioned role play will be designated in the subforum for that role play. Any moderators for a sanctioned role play will be listed in the forum notes as well.

3.) After your character sheet is approved you will receive notification of approval, and you will be added to the group associated with the official/sanctioned role play forum.

4.) Postings that may seem offensive in The WildeWoods are to be taken as in character and ignored as in character, unless they are ensconced in the double parenthesis that designates them as out of character chat; in which case the offensive person will be punished as set out in the forum rules.

5.) Out of character chat will be restricted to clearly designated locations outside the actual role play thread/topic. In other words, No out of character chat will be allowed inside the actual roleplay thread/topic. Out of character chat and discussions may be taken to Private Messaging as well as to the designated role play chat topics.

6.) Any complaints related to how a sanctioned role play is being run should be taken to the GM for that role play. If you have a complaint of infractions of general rules for the forum please report the post, and send a pm to a Companion of the Light.

7.) Any pets belonging to a specific character that have the gift of speech are allowed only if;
a.) A separate character profile has been filled out for them.
b.) They have their own Player Character account.
c.) Their account has the same valid email address as their owner.
d.) Pets which do not have the gift of speech or who are not capable of speaking to others may have there communication indicated by different colored text, so long as the chosen color is readable and is a constant.
