Rules of the Road

(Or, common guidelines for successful RP)

1) Follow the main rules, please.

2) No cybering. This should be obvious, given the above.

3) Be courteous. No godmodding (for those who may not know, that is, your characters aren't invincible. Play appropriately.), no playing others' characters.

4) When roleplaying, please use correct grammar and punctuation. Everyone makes typos, but "who r u?" is not acceptable.

5) If the creator of a particular RP thread makes additional rules (for example, one character per person, no duplicate shinki, etc), please cooperate.

6) As this is a forum dedicated to Busou Shinki, please keep all RP on-topic. If you seek off-topic RP, there are plenty of other websites you can search on.

Small question about the grammar, if the character we are roleplaying uses poor or unusual grammar, such as the aforementioned "Who r u?", is it okay to use it when they are talking and use regular grammar in the rest of the post?

Only if it's in dialogue, and only then if it would actually be noticeable to anyone listening. Random letters replacing words wouldn't be picked up, listening, so should not be used.

If it's text messages and stuff though, sure, I guess.
