Starting Threads

Regardless of where a topic may be posted, it is open to anyone and anything unless marked with one of the following tags:

(Private) - No one may join unless invited by a topic participant. Private tags may be used by anyone anywhere, so long as you're not in a player-controlled territory without permission.

(Mature) - A Mature tag is required for any topic containing sexual content or excessively descriptive gore. Mature threads may not affect anyone who is not directly involved in the topic.

(PVP Restricted), (PK Restricted) and (Unrestricted) - The first two referring to "Player vs Player" and "Player Killing", respectively. Although these are not topic tags, you'll find that each RP forum has a symbol indicating its status. Those forums that are PVP Restricted may contain fights, but only with the full consent of those affected. You may not randomly attack anyone in these forums without their permission. PK Restricted means that you may start a fight with anyone's character without permission, but may not kill or otherwise permanently damage/hinder them without consent. Unrestricted means just that, there are no limitations on what you can do to a character.


Essential RP Rules

God-Modding | God-Modding includes a variety of actions that would be considered impossible for your character, such as dodging every attack (avoiding all damage unscathed) or using a spell, technique, item or any other combat-related asset that your character should not even possess (you may only use something if it's on your Characer Sheet and has been approved by at least one member of staff prior to the thread). It can also take the form of auto-hitting, which is when you make your attack an absolute hit without giving your opponent the chance to avoid it.

For example, "James lunged at Alexander with one quick stride, before immediately driving his fists into the face of his older brother, landing every other hit." will be considered God-Modding and, depending on the severity of the violation, your post may be rendered void. New role-players will be given one warning and the chance to edit before this is enforced, however. Afterward, any God-Modding will result in the nullification of their post. Keep in mind, controlling the character of others in any capacity will be considered God-Modding. You may not dictate the attire, attributes, actions or reactions of any character outside of your own and those you have direct control of.

Meta-Gaming | Meta-Gaming is far simpler to understand. It is when your character makes use of information that you've acquired OOC in an IC capacity. If your character has no means of knowing of something, then it is imperative that you not give them that knowledge. It will be considered meta-gaming and it will be treated in the same regard as God-Modding. All actions derived from the violation will be rendered null, meaning that if you meta-gamed in order to defend against an attack, your defense will be voided and the attack will land. You will be given one chance to edit, but only for the first violation.


General RP Rules

  1. Any post or action that violates a rule or fundamental logic will be subject to staff review, particularly a Battle Moderator.
  2. Anyone who God-Mods or Meta-Games will have their post nullified and any impending attacks will be ruled a hit, pending staff review.
  3. For the sake of consistency and neutral terminology, all posts must be typed in the third-person perspective.
  4. When engaged in Combat RP, you must keep your Stamina and Mana bars updated to indicate how much you have left.
  5. Your signature must contain a link to your Character Sheet in order to maintain easy access for staff and other members.
  6. If you give someone IC cause to want to fight you, forum status may be ignored with the approval of a staff member
  7. You may be in any number of social threads but only 2 training threads and 2 quest threads at any given time.
  8. Despite the above limits, you may only be in 1 real battle thread at a time. This does not include sparring.
  9. If someone you're fighting takes longer than 72 hours to respond, you may claim an auto-hit. If it is only a spar, this hit may not be lethal.
  10. Any thread where a participant has posted a 'Departure' topic will be frozen and treated as null pendering their return. If the thread is a social thread and someone takes longer than 72 hours to respond, you may post again to exit the thread.


Timeline Rules & Progression

The term 'timeline' here on Lorecraft RPG has two meanings. It is used to define the point where a topic begins all the way to the point that it ends. It also refers to the overall timeline of the site, one that all characters must follow. As far as the timeline of topics is concerned, you are limited in which posts you may interrupt the actions of. For example, if someone is attacking another person, you will only be able to intervene if it was that person's latest post. If they attacked someone multiple posts ago, you have already missed your opportunity to act. Keep in mind, the post order is determined by the order in which everyone participating in the topic has posted. If James posted, then Alexander replied and Jessica joined in third, then the post order would be: James, Alexander and then Jessica. If the post order is violated, you may be asked to delete your post or it will be deleted for you.

As far as the over-all timeline of the site is concerned, it directly correlates with the passage of time in real life, with a year equaling one year. Your character's age will be determined based on their age when created and how long they have existed since. This will be handled as an update to your Character Sheet, which will have to be approved by staff. You are free to take this opportunity to make any necessary adjustments to your recent history, personality, attire or appearance. Time updates are purely voluntary and offer no substantial advantage. Every so often, there may also be time 'skips' where the timeline is fast-forwarded and old characters will have to be updated to comply with it. Although newer characters may be exempt, you may still choose to also update your character(s). Threads that take place in the past are allowed, so long as you're never in two places at the same time. However, threads set in the future are not permitted as other threads may render it null at any point.


Travelling Rules

There aren't any firm rules regarding travelling on Lorecraft RPG. The map is rather large and we wish to encourage as much travelling as possible. What we do request is that you outline the fact that you traveled in your post in some way, inferring that it did indeed take place. You may refer to the Maps of Sosaria for how you might go about this, since different places will require different methods.


Role-Play Styles

Vague Manipulation | In this style, the role-player will take advantage of their opponent's lack of detail in order to direct the course of battle. This is restricted to combat RP and may not be used for the purposes of trolling your opponent, such as dictating their appearance or having them arrive to the fight in the nude. An example of Vague Manipulation would be if your opponent said something along the lines of: 'Naruto threw his fist at Sasuke' and you replied with: 'Sasuke stepped to the left, Naruto's right fist missing his head by an inch'. In this case, Sasuke was able to dictate which fist Naruto used, as well as where his punch was aimed. This is because Naruto had the opportunity to specify both in his own post, but failed to do so, leaving an opening for Sasuke to take advantage of.

Code Role-Play | In this style, the role-player will provide just enough detail to signify the existence of an attack or action, without stating so in clear words. An example would be: 'Black flames appeared from Itachi's eyes, after a stream of blood.' rather than 'Blood streamed from Itachi's eyes as he activated Amaterasu, black flames shooting at his opponent.' Keep in mind, you must be able to explain when and where your character took the action and show that it could be reasonably determined the action was taken, if the time had been taken to do so. You may be requested to edit your post if you lacked sufficient detail, as determined by staff. Beware, code role-playing often leaves you susceptible to vague manipulation against experienced Combat RPers.

Filler Role-Play | In this banned style, the role-player will load their post with tons of frivolous and irrelevant details with the intention of masking their actions and making it more difficult for their opponent to decipher what is going on without reading through block after block of text. It is perfectly fine to be as detailed as you wish, so long as it pertains to relevant subjects. If you take two paragraphs to describe your appearance or the scenery, you are within guidelines. However, if you spend two paragraphs talking about the old lady fifty feet away who's petting her cat, you will be asked to gut your post until it's found to be acceptable by staff. This will only be enforced if a participant in the topic requests you reduce your post, you refuse, and they file a complaint with staff. This is not a rule against long posts, as it has to be obvious that you're including unnecessary details just to lengthen your post to abnormal degrees.
