Calypso's Code of Conduct

1.  I am not Naomie Harris nor am I affliated with the actress in any shape or form.  (Other than rp'ing as Tia Dalma that is.)2.  I prefer para/multi-para role-plays.  As you can see by my page, one-liners are also acceptable but only tolerated by a select few and it does not take the place of a substantial storyline.3.  Godmodding is not acceptable.  Do so and you will be smited with the utmost quickness.   However, since my character is a mischievous goddess there may be instances where your character will be controlled or even harmed depending on the storyline.  But do not fear, I will not mutilate or kill your character.4.  Messages are for OOC purposes only.  All rp should be in comments or in a designated blog.  As a popular goddess one can imagine I receive quite a bit of mail.  Anything from "Dearest Calypso, I have this bunion on my foot, which causes great discomfort. Could you rid me of it?"  to   "Would you kindly be the mother of my children?"5. Correct grammar is important as is punctuation and spelling.  When in doubt utilize spell check before posting a comment to the goddess. No chat or text speak. For is for or four, not 4. To is two or too, not 2. Need I go on?6. Only rp accounts will be added.  No exceptions.7. I abhor drama.  Loathe it.  If you bring drama or insanity my way, know you will be deleted and blocked without hesitation.8.  Calypso is a flirtatious and seductive character.  Now this does not mean she will have sexual liaisons with anyone or everyone. First and foremost you must be a good writer and there must be chemistry between our characters for anything romantic to transpire. 9. Patience is definitely a virtue. I am active on other accounts and because of this, my responses will be slow.  However, if you are one of my favorites, responses will be returned at a reasonable pace. 10.   Last but not certainly least....  Rp'ing is an escape and a chance to display our talent as writers.  In closing, let's not to forget to have fun!

RULES (Read & Sign)

RULES..Don't do any auto-kills or you will be deleted...Don't be a jerk. If I add you and you turn out to be a jerk then I am deleting...I could be wrong people but, LOL if you have to RP all day every day, you don't have a life. Now don't rip my head off for that statement, but I got to question why someone would be on MySpace that much if you following what I'm sayin. You can expect me to not be around all the time just on days when I feel like it...I don't RP with anyone that thinks they are undefeatable. Even invincible immortals can be defeated by using brain over brawn, or any other strategy. I usually steer clear from anyone with godhood or higher, but if it shoud happen that I run into a god, I'm runnin' my ass out the gate like Usain Bolt! If you think I'm fighting Mandrakk or Doomsday h2h & shit, you crazy. When push comes to shove, only one thing matters to me. Staying alive...In a chain attack, 2 or even 3 combinations are fine with me, but if you start unloading the whole kitchen sink, I will stop the RP and give you a warning. Doing everything at once is godmodding, and saying that the attacks happened already before I could counter is autoing. I aint with either...I'll joke around and talk Out of Character sometimes when it is the appropriate time and place to do so but please keep it In Character when we rp...Black Manta KILLS. He's one of the most merciless, unrepentant killers in DC he's even killed an infant child. So expect a lot of killing with me and if you don't like that then don't roleplay with me. Add to that if any JL'er  wearing that wholesome good guy badge has the balls (or the guts, ladies) to come and kill me, I welcome him to try. I ain't afraid to die in RP. Though as Black Manta I will avoid it in any way I can...Yeah, I'm a Aquaman villain and 70% of the time I'm under water. That ain't gonna stop me from assaulting the rest of the League and matter of fact I hate all heroes, so you will all get a chance to see me eventually...I'm a legal adult, though a young adult but legal. So I have no problem with mature themes...I'll work with other villains especially if the money's right. You may know me from many villain teams like the Secret Society of Supervillains and the Legion of Doom. But if I choose to do things on my own on certain days, don't start pulling my leg. I'm nobody's slave and friendship only goes so far with me, remember the saying in the end there's no honor among thieves. Some villains don't trust me anyway, and they'd be right. I'm a notorious liar...Some of you may not know that much about Black Manta. Well he's intelligent, mechanically gifted, an excellent swimmer, criminal mastermind, has artificial gills, plenty of lackey-types & henchmen who call me bossman, and a huge collection of high-tech weaponry. True, I'm no Lex, but I got credentials, and even he would tell you that...Don't ask me to RP solely in messages, bulletins, statuses or any stupidness like that. I RP in COMMENTS, and I love to RP in BLOGS and GROUPS because you can have unlimited post room. You ever want to get at me out-of-character, click the message button and say your peace.ABILITIES..EYE LASER BEAMS - The large red eye lenses of Black Manta's helmet shoot destructive laser beams. The beams are of concussive force and are powerful enough to crater and bend metal posts, knock an average man back through several brick walls, and even mow down an array of trees but can willingly be lightened or boosted in blast strength. They are similar to metahuman optic blasts and have a long distance range capability...GENETICALLY MODIFIED GILLS - These were implanted into Black Manta and his henchmen. They allow him to be able to breathe deep underwater and out-of-water...SPECIALIZED DIVING SUIT - The suit itself can provide breathable air and withstand temperature extremes and high pressure in deep water. Two tubes made to look similar to 'antennas' connect to a built-in, backup oxygen tank behind his back. The suit and helmet is modified to be incredibly durable and underwater it can give him the strength to lift no more than 5 tons. The feet of the suit supposedly has functioning jet boots and the suit is colored in all black, hence the name...HELMET - It typically has Manta's ability to see and breathe through optic lenses, it also has a built-in radar & sonar sensor when someone approaches close. The two tubes at the back of his suit are connected to this helmet. It has decent durability but is not indestructible, as it was once even bitten off by King Shark...TELEPATHIC SCRAMBLER - Built within his helmet, it is used to effectively scramble telepathy causing TP interference & disruption...WRIST GAUNTLETS - Black Manta's wrist gauntlets can charge up electricity...FOREARM SHEATH SHOOTERS WITH MINI-BARBED HARPOONS - Located on Black Manta's forearms are sheaths that can shoot out mini-harpoons made of hard metal, and very sharp. Are capable of being poison dipped...TRIDENT - A long, three-pronged trident that he sometimes carries, and can wield fairly well in combat...GIFTED INTELLECT - Specializes in mechanics, cybernetics, vehicle and weapons technology. Also knowledged in Ecology, Geology, Oceanology, hydrological studies and marine life. Experienced in sailing and submarines. Can be clever, sneaky, and doesn't give too much away...BLACK MANTA'S SEA-SAUCER - A stealthy, swift, and heavily armed submersible vehicle. Advanced in technology, sonar, and is the Manta's primary way of getting around places in the seas...SKILLED HAND 2 HAND COMBATANT - Assassin. Kills without mercy. Very skilled undersea fighter. Has some overall decent fighting ability. Prefers stealth & usage of weapons over h2h...OTHER WEAPONS - Knives, blades, mini-torpedos, guns, harpoon guns, armored land rover (such as the one in Batman:The Brave & the Bold), mini-subs, snorkels, has access to missiles, demolition claymores, spiked floating mines, trigger bombs, etc.

Messages are reserved for members with their questions or concerns. More so for auditions. If you would like to affiliate with us, please send us a comment as well. 2. We are a multi-para/novella RPG. One liners will not be accepted. Group members are required to send each other three decent sized paragraphs. Proper spelling and grammar is a must. Everyone makes mistakes, but try your best. No ** or - - will be accepted in serious roleplay. Group chats or silly comments are different. 3. We are a serious RPG. Members must be dedicated to us. Members must be on at least 3 days a week and replies must be sent at a steady pace. We are very lenient during the school year, so if you need extra time for replies just let the members know in a comment or in your status. We understand how much time school and extra curricular activities will take up. During summer vacations, we will expect more from you. If you will be going on hiatus for any given reason, send the rpg page a message and we will let everyone know. If you disappear for more than two weeks without notice, your role will be put up for audition again. If you have read this far, tell me which book is your favorite.4. If you are given a role, you have to add and roleplay with all members of the group and put the members banner and section on your profile. The code will be sent to you when you receive your acceptance letter. Due to the fact that both Lissa and Rose have mains outside of the VA verse, we will allow you to have mains outside of the group, as long as they are not canon characters from Vampire Academy. If they are original Vampire Academy characters, they can feel free to audition as an original when we begin accepting them. 5. Please make sure to audition for a character that you love. If you change your mind about the role you received, send the rpg a message and feel free to audition for another. It will save us a lot of trouble if you are sure about a character before you audition, so please be absolutely sure. 6. No OOC drama will be permitted. You will be kicked out of the rpg without hesitation, no matter how long you have been with us. IC drama is a must, it makes storylines more fun, but please try and work out any conflicts amongst yourselves. If it is desperately needed, you can contact Lissa or Rose and we will try and help you compromise. 7. Members, please make sure that you approve all comments and do not delete your replies. We will randomly check to make sure that you are being active with all members. 8. We are a mature rpg, meaning that there will be sex, drinking and violence. If you cannot handle this, please do not audition. If you can to an extent, don't hesitate to let everyone know what your limits are. We all have them. 9. Your profile has to look neat an organized. If you need help with your profile, help can be provided when you are accepted into our group. 10. Females may audition for a male role and vice-versa. As long as you are able to portray the character they way they were written and can keep up with their sexuality, there will be no problems. 11. Playbys are some-what negotiable. Do not ask us to change the playby until you receive your acceptance message. The actor|actress or model must fit the character. We won't pick them just because you like them. If you're still with us, Team Belikov or Team Ivashkov?12. We will try to have group chats in aim every weekend. If you don't have aim, please create a screen name or let us know so that we can have a chatzy instead when you are available. Group chats are meant to be fun, so that we can all get to know each other and fool around! 13. If you audition for a character who does not have a love interest, you have free reign to find one, if it is what you want. As long as this person can fit into the story, it will be acceptable. This person cannot be in another VA rpg and they can audition as an original if they are VA verse. 14. Last Addition: NO  OC'S! >.> Sorry we are working on a new plot line and the only OC'S able to join will be the ones we create for our storyline.15. NEW RULE: When you audition, please be sure to send the form and the writing sample in ONE message. It is more organized for us that way. Please read and sign these rules before Auditioning.
