Disclaimers: FIRST OFF, WE DO NOT, OR WILL WE EVER, CLAIM TO HAVE OWNERSHIP OF ANY OF THE CHARACTERS BEING INTERPRETED HERE, (APART FROM THE ORIGINAL CREATIONS WHICH ARISE) OR BE IN ANYWAY AFFILIATED WITH THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTENT, AND THEMES, AND NATURE OF THE DESCENDANTS FRANCHISE. DISNEY. OR ANY SUBSEQUENT OFFICIAL MATERIALS IN RELATION TO THEM. THIS IS A ROLE PLAY GROUP & ENTIRELY FOR ENTERTAINMENT & RECREATIONAL PURPOSES. WE ARE VERY OPEN TO, & WELCOME & INCLUDE EXTEMELY AU THEMES HERE, WE WISH TO PROMOTE CREATIVITY.
Welcome. Please be sure to read these thoroughly because they must be upheld to the very letter, to ensure a pleasurable role play experience for all. There will be instructions on how to sign properly, so we know they have been fully read. Do NOT just scroll down, to see what others have put, as we will be changing the instructions at any given point, without notice. We will know if you've not read them. And your comment will be void. These rules MUST be read & signed properly, before we will even consider your audition. We apologise if this seems strict, but we only want what is best for the group, so need to be aware that you can, and will, stick to the requirements.
This group shall be NC18+ but should still be treated with the greatest respect at all times by all members. There will be very mature themes involved, violence, sex, gore, substance abuse, to name some possible examples. We are looking to bring a little grit to this verse. Just because it is Disney based, & deals with fairy tales, & the younger generation, does not mean it NEEDS to be twee. There is a dark side to everything.
IN character drama, is by all means encouraged. Keeps things lively & interesting. But in no circumstances do you involve people in, or bring OOC drama to this group. Start anything like that, you will be removed & blocked . We have zero tolerance when it comes to drama. It's toxic. And breeds a toxic environment. Any problems with fellow members, do not let it escalate out of control and try to suck everyone else into it. Try to resolve it quietly, like adults, or simply explain the problem to an admin in private, and we will take matters from there.
We value quality over quantity. Although, we will not accept one-liners and para-role play. This does not mean that we will be expecting you to write out a novella sized comment every time, if you are not capable of doing that. We do understand that sometimes shorter replies are preferred to move the role play along occasionally. But this is a multi-para to novella group. We ask that you do write in storybook format, and third person is preferred, though if certain members prefer to use first person, you are most welcome to work that out between yourselves. This of course excludes random silly banter between characters, or any status play - and in the in character channels on the Discord server. Nobody is perfect. We will all make mistakes whether they be grammatical errors or misspelled words. We simply ask for some effort to be put forth. With browsers now coming with built in spell check, this shouldn't be a problem. We are not going to be super strict about this as long as we are capable of deciphering what is being said.
We understand that we all have our outside commitments, it's only natural. We have them too. We ask that you are on at least 2- 3 times a week. If you know that there is going to be some reason that you aren't going to be on, PLEASE tell us; so it is not assumed you have abandoned the character. We will be doing sporadic activity checks. Which will take varying forms, prompt drabbles, status plays, or even confessions -more about confessions can be found on the members only page. They may be once a month, a fortnight, or once a week. It will all depend on you. If we feel that some may be slacking then we will check in on all of you more often. We want to keep this group up and going for as long as we can and that won't be able to happen with members going M.I.A.-- On a similar note, we understand that people get bored of characters or simply don't have the time to play them any longer. Rather than just dropping your page, or deleting with no word leaving everyone high and dry, wondering where you've gone, let us know you are no longer interested. This way we can place your character on the availability list so that another can play them, instead of waiting around to see if you'll bother to show up again .
You may play more than one character if you truly wish, but no going above 2. We do not want activity to suffer because of people being over stretched. Also, your second character must be one who does not have cause to interact with your first much, as you would be posting to, & writing with, yourself. If you wish to do that- you might as well just write fan fiction. Second characters will not be allowed however, until you have been suitably active on your first.
We are SURE there will be more. These are just the basics as we wanted to get them up & running as a guideline. We reserve the right to edit these as & when, and you shall be notified if & when changes do occur. But for now, that is it- so here comes the most important part of all...Enjoy yourselves! We are here to write, and to have fun - that's what it's all about! So sign up & join us. What are you waiting for?
