Rules of Fiore Village
Please be sure to read
Character Creation and In-Character Posting 1) This is an account per character roleplay. Please register with the ful name of your character (i.e., Julia Carver). You can attach accounts in the sub account area of the user cp, and if you need help - contact a staff member and we will gladly help you out! 2) Members are allowed to create up to 10 characters on this site. This allows members to have many flexible characters with many different personalities without causing themselves to much stress from having to maintain too many characters. If you prove you can handle the ten character limit, then you may be approved to create more. This is by approval only! 3) When creating a character, please refrain from creating Mary Sue’s or Gary Stu’s [an idealized and seemingly-perfect character with no flaws and, always somehow knows how to do everything and anything to solve all problems]. God-modding will not be tolerated. No one is perfect and acting as such will result in a warning and possibly being banned. 4) You must wait until an admin or moderator approves your completed application before joining any active threads. If there are any problems with your application, you will be messaged accordingly and given time to fix the problem. 5) Please be advised that this roleplay, as it is a public forum, is not allowed to be incredibly mature. Please keep all references to drugs and substance abuse, gore, and sex and fetishes to a minimum. If you wish to write in detail about these particular subjects, please do so off-site [such as via Google Docs] or through the PM system. 6) Just in case, please understand the icons and what they entail: Open – This thread is open to all members and welcomes everyone to post together if they so wish. Closed – This thread is for specific members only. The members are usually listed in the title. If you are unsure if you are allowed to post in these threads, simply PM a moderator and they’ll get back to you ASAP. Solo – This thread is a solo, written by a single member with their character(s). These threads are not to be posted in by anyone else for any reason. It is vulgar. Festival – Another open thread for all members to post in. This icon signifies that, while everyone is free to post in the thread, the thread is for a particular festival and we ask you to keep within the context of this festival. TW/CW – "Trigger Warning"/"Content Warning." These two icons are rarely used, but they signify a possible subject that may disturb some younger members, or members who are more sensitive to certain topics. Finished – This icon shows that thread is completed. Please do not continue to post in these threads. 7) We understand that discrimination and hate for particular groups is an unfortunate part of life. However, we ask that this not is reflected in our roleplay. We know this is meant to be a roleplay that reflects both real life and Harvest Moon. However, discrimination and racial hate of any kind will not be tolerated. Any racial slurs and discriminatory words that are used in posts will NOT be tolerated and will result in an AUTOMATIC BAN from the site.
Out of Character Rules 1) Please do not badger other members for responses. Roleplay is not more important than real life and as such should never take precedence over it. Members will get back to you when they can. However, this is not an excuse to simply not post for a month without any warning. 2) Respect all members. Displaying any form of racism, sexism, or any discrimination will not be tolerated here and will result in an automatic ban. If you have an issue with a member, please deal with it off-site, or direct your problem to a moderator and they will attempt to resolve the problem. 3) Plagiarism will NOT be accepted at all. It is acceptable to take inspiration from other people’s works, but it is not okay to simply take their ideas and slap new names/words into it and call it your own. This applies to templates, character stories, and anything in the Member Talent section. Violation of this rule will not be tolerated. 4) Do not advertise in our chat box or our threads. We have a designated area for advertisements that can be found here.
Notice Please be aware that these rules may change. We will announce any changes, and it will be your responsibility to take note of those changes.
We would also like to make it clear that the Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons series and all trademarks associated with it belong to their creator, Nintendo. We are merely borrowing certain elements for roleplaying purposes.
Failure to follow these rules will result in consequences.
C-Box Rules 1) Please, no advertising! 2) No bullying/pestering for posts. 3) Keep it all OOC and PG-13.
