In the Shadows..- rules guide

Post by OukaHowls » Wed Sep 03, 2008 4:27 pm

These are simple rules to fallow, easy as pie.



there are no Godmoding! ( example: 'He ran faster then the car in front of him.' or ' he climbed up the wall in no time..', ext.)
----------------------
There are limits for us all, even me.
----------------------
You can not kill someone in an instant, it takes time to kill someone.
( hopefully no one will die on here. :P )
----------------------
You can not kill someone you have not met.
----------------------
For Warlocks and Witches: You have limits to what you can do, but as you procead in the RP
Your powers will increase. but not so powerful that you can not be effected by anything.
( No flying! )
----------------------
For Lycanthropes: You are effected by anything like a normal wolf. Silver Bullets don't kill you like you see in the movies. You may climb walls with your claws, but slowly, not as fast as you think. ( No jumping from building to building! ) And make sure you are not seen by humans!
----------------------
For Dragons: You are effected by anything too. You may fly ( of course.) but you have limits too, like anyone else.
----------------------
Yes you can do cool tricks when your fighting. :D

Any Questions? Favors? :)

Can main character humans command other humans that have no role in the game, only there just to help them out? They do not kill at all, they are supporting characters.

Ex. Clark is surrounded by a horde of zombies and he orders three people to start whacking them on the head to create a path to walk through.

and just to be fair,

Ex. Ronan contacts his fellow protectors to offer assistance for transport, aid, or something like that.

Well, I will allow the human characters to have up to 9 men to help out.
For Clark and Ronan.

2 men for help.

3/4 men for fighting.

and possibly for later, 9 men for war.

( Hopefully this will all work out. :D )
----------------------

And Nekko, you may do some cool/awesome moves if you like.
That is if you’re good at martial arts type of stuff. :D

Oh it's okay. :D This is the Rule Guide for my RPG ' In the Shadows..'
You can join if you like in the Character Creation section.

This is a place to ask questions of the rp. So it's just fine that you asked about it.

I would like to make a suggestion:

For those who want more characters, can we do the chess rule?

The chess rule is that when one character of a player does something, only one or two people can go against that character, depending on the severity of the situation. And once that happens, nothing BIG can happen to that character, but talking to that character is always allowed.

This way, the player's second character can get a little bit of action if the first character is on the opposite team. My Caelean isn't getting enough in the fights, based on the one post rule, where I can only post once someone else RPs, or 24 hours have lapsed.

Severity example:
dialogue and/or one minor attack; up to 3 posts of the same kind.
two minor attacks or one major attack; up to 2 posts of the same kind
one fatal attack; only one post

Does this seem fair?

That seems fair. Yes, this rule may be possible if you wish, good thinking Moss.
Though may I add, If anyone would like to have a second character ( besides Moss ) you may contact me now.
For now, I will only have one of our characters be allowed another character of a different race. ( Vampire, Dragon, Witch/Warlock, or Human )
They will have to abide by the rules as posted just as there original character. They must create the character's profile in the 'Character Creation' section too.
( These second characters are not like NPC's*, they are not killed easily like them.)

Thank you Moss for your suggestion.


* NPC: None Playable Character; this is not an original character in the RPG, can be killed easily and is a extra to the story to fill in.
