New Divide is a forum-based role-playing game slightly based on the Superhuman Registration Act arc of Marvel Comics. It is up to you to choose your path between the registered Army of Americannia and the rebellion of the Crimson Vindicate!

*sigh*This was a bad idea from the beginning. None of us admins are interested in the site anymore, and I already know its been unoffically closed for a while now. But just for the heck of it...THIS RPG IS CLOSEDI am eminently sad that it went down before it could ever begin, but Yaka and Kit are MIA, I'm too busy to give it any time and Kallen is... well, she's Kallen. :PSee ya 'round~

PostSubject: The RPG Rulebook   Tue Sep 29, 2009 7:14 am

Attention all retarded kittens! Can you read this post? Read everything in it.
Reading the rules is obligatory, it is not available as choice.

Main Forum Rules:

  1. Hello, this is Kallen, one of the Admins of New Divide speaking here. We are the people who run the RPG, and make sure everyone has a nice and fun time. We Admins and Moderators are subject to the same rules that you are (in the case of standard characters, not NPCs), but we may and will do what is necessary to keep peace in the game. Read on and welcome to New Divide.

  2. To role-play here, you must have an accepted character in the Accepted Characters forum.

  3. Everyone should respect everyone else. This means, no flaming, no fighting in the OOC areas, and no provoking others into flaming.

  4. After being here 1 month, you will be recognized as a full member. From this point on, you will gain the rights and privileges that entitles.
    Meaning you can now make requests for new powers, you may create a custom race or team, you can ask about storylines that you’re interested in running, and you may apply for NPCs (Note: God NPCs like the Four Supernovas are still not allowed for normal players)

  5. Have fun! That's the point of this RPG and that's why we're all here! Don't hamper other people's fun. Someone who isn't having fun isn't someone who wants to stay here.

  6. You are not limited to one thread at a time. Role-playing here in the wide variety of locations allows you to build multiple storylines at once. It's in your own hands to determine the time line of your character. The only limitation to your free range, is if your character has died. You can't very well be posting alive somewhere else when the character is dead.

  7. World-changing events need to be cleared with the Admins and/or Mods. Don't go blowing up Washington without checking with us; this is for two reasons. First, you must see if it's even okay to go through with it (seriously, Washington is the Capital of the World). Secondly, if you blow up Washington and nobody knows, its... kinda stupid really. o-o

  8. And of course, the Golden Rule: NO GOD DAMN GODMODDING. You can't dodge every hit thrown your way, and you won't hit your opponent every single time. Also, you are prevented from trying to control the actions of other people - meaning you can't say "I stab Hane, Hane gets stabbed, Hane dies". You can say "I stab Hane", what happens after your action is up to the owner of that character.

  9. The second Golden Rule: NO SPAMMING.

  10. You can kill other characters only if you have permission from the person being killed. However you're more than welcome to kill your own characters as you please. Its called Suicide. o.o

  11. Explicit sex is not allowed on the forum. You can kiss and you can cut to the next morning before you actually do anything, leaving everyone to assume you had sex, but you can't actually RP the actions out. Doing so will get you banned. This also includes OOC areas of the board.

  12. NPCs are Non-Player Characters, this means that they cannot be used like a standard Player Character. They can not be used outside of the storyline (or storylines) for which they were created unless you get permission from the person who created the topic that you wish to join with your NPC.
    Until you have exceeded 1-month active membership and can apply for NPCs, you are limited to the normal NPCs such as parents, siblings, close relatives, etc.

  13. Do not make small posts, like Kallen walks in, gets bored, leaves. Try to use your imagination as much as possible. Describe everything in great detail. Your posts must at least be a paragragh (3 - 5 lines), but there is no upper limit.

  14. A Moderator has full right to do whatever he wants, and can only be overruled by an Administrator (me mostly). If you have a problem with a Mod, contact me. *points to PM feature*

  15. Offensive usernames are subject to be banned and deadlocked on sight. Consciously making an offensive username is against the rules and will not be tolerated.

    Offensive language / usernames consist of usernames/language include, but are not limited to:

    * Excessive swearing
    * Sexual references
    * Being a generic pervert (beware >->)
    * Racism
    * Illegal drug references

  16. Keep everything PG-13. You should all know what that means.

  17. The user of the account is at all times responsible of anything that occurs with his/her account. Hackers, little brothers, retarded kittens, possessing Symbiotes, or mysterious glitches are not any excuse.

  18. Bans are definitive and will not be revoked, anyone found whining about being banned, shall simply have their ban extended.

  19. You are allowed as many characters as you wish, but you may have only one account on the Forum. If we find out one owner uses two or more accounts, we will delete the latest account without notice and ban the original for upto 3 days.

  20. If something isn't in the rules, it doesn't mean you can do it anyway. There is probably a ruling already on something, already. If you’re unsure about something you wish to do, then ask a Moderator.

  21. If you break any of the rules mentioned above, you will be given three warnings. After that, you will be banned from the Forum for a week. If you still don't learn your lesson you will be banned permanently.

Other Things:

  • When you sign up, please only make one username. If you don't like your current name, contact an admin and we'll change it for you.

  • If you leave for more than a week, be sure to check this forum for any updates. Then, you should go check the Accepted Characters to make sure your character is still there.

  • If someone is holding up a storyline, then the person who is running that storyline may take temporary control of that person's characters to help continue the topic along. This rule does not, however, allow the person running the storyline to grievously harm or kill the character. This rule applies to both private and RPG-wide storylines.
