Hello! Thank you for taking time our of your busy lives to take a look at our group! County Lines is a Create-Your-Own Character type of RPG and we look forward to having you join us! Please take your time reading these rules, and sign below appropriately!
Activity: It’s simple. We want you to be here, we want you to want to write. That being said, We are asking that you log into your page and post on your stream at minimum 3x a week. As for replies, we ask that you keep an ‘Owes List’ (either on your page or in your blog) don’t have anything on your owes section that is more than 1 month old.
Drama & Bullying: In character drama is ALWAYS welcome. We understand the best storylines have angst and we are all for that; As well as make ups, break ups. HOWEVER- the owner(s) of this RPG will NOT tolerate out of character drama or bullying. Please know that you can come to the owner(s) about anything. We may ask for proof, but you can be sure that we will take care of business. Anyone who creates OOC drama or bullies anyone will be cut from the group.
Bio & Layout: We would like your layout up in two weeks from your start date, and your bio up in 3. The biography doesn’t need to state your character’s secret, because it is, in fact a secret. If you’ve made it to this spot, go ahead and add what name you’re contemplating auditioning for. Please make sure you’ve got an ‘Owes List’ either on your page or in your blog- with a link on your layout.
Length of writing: We want you to be inspired to write here. While other RPGs are pretty strict about the length of replies, I feel like the sweet spot is to ask 2 paragraphs per reply, minimum. We ask for quality over quantity, but we also would like to see our writers give back the quality they are getting. If you’re still with us, please comment with your favorite corny pickup line.
Storylines: We ask that you chat with everyone, but you are only required to have 3 main storylines. If you can accommodate more, by all means, have at it. Just make sure your top 3 are priority. This being said: WE WILL NOT TOLERATE CLIQUES THAT IGNORE OTHERS. if we feel there are too many cliques forming, we will send out warnings. While you will have the main 3 storylines; Everyone should feel like they talk talk to anyone and not be shut out.
Character Changes, Marriages & Children: Here’s the tricky part:
Character changes: must be approved by the MOP. The MOP will approve or deny based on your activity level and reasons for requesting a change (I.e. Maybe you tried writing a female here, but have lost your muse and think you may be better suited with a male muse). We want you to be happy here, we just want to make sure you’re writing as well and don’t spend all of your time changing your character. That being said, we are limiting changes to one change a month.
Marriages and Children: A character may join the RPG as having either (If joining as married, we request your spouse also be in the rpg, or auditioning). Marriages are allowed, but we ask that you wait at least two RL weeks before getting engaged. Children will also be allowed but only a few at a time. We ask that you check with us before writing pregnancy into your storyline- We also ask that you have the permission of your partner (If applicable), as we don’t want the RPG overrun by pregnancies and babies.
Social Media: Social media is encouraged, but not mandatory. The owners have LINE and will be creating a group chat there, prefer you have the same avenue of social media.
We want you to be proud to be living in Madison, Georgia. This sleepy small town needs something to shake it up. Don’t forget to sign the rules with the required information!
