03.2023 | WELCOME BACK! Hello friends old and new! I'm so excited to welcome you all back to SITW! I've made some changes to the plot and added the ability to play supernatural charcaters! So come and check it out! I can't wait to jump back into this little town with all of you!
A strange history surrounds the town, it is a place where mysterious and supernatural things have been known to happen. The reputation of the town reguarly draws in visitors and newcomers alike. While some residents avidly believe in the supernatural, others are far more skeptical. What do you believe?
Every member and character should have an individual account. Your first account should be your OOC account. Each character will then have his/her own account.
-Register with the first name of your character. This is helpful for tagging purposes. So please use @jane and not @janedoe.
-Please post character applications in the character account, not the OOC account.
ACTIVITY AND CONDUCT
-All members and staff are expected to treat one another with kindness and respect. This looks like threading with everyone, being polite in OOC exchanges, refraining from cruel gossip, avoiding cliquey behavior, and more. Violators of this rule are subject to immediate banning. We take this very seriously.
-We do not have an activity requirement. However canon characters that are left unattended (without an absence post) for one month are subject to removal of their position and may be written out of the story as needed.
-Don't forget that roleplaying is for FUN! If you aren't having fun then don't do it; if you are keeping others from having fun then reconsider your participation on this site. Please remember that this is all just game and you are NOT your character and things done IC to your character are not personal attacks on you. Accept things that happen IC as IC and respond to them in an IC way. Don't be toxic or you may be subject to banning.
-All characters must have a real life face claim of a famous person (actor, model, celebrity, etc). No art or CGI faces please.
-All played characters must be at least 16 years old.
-Limited Supernatural Characters. In order to ensure that there are always more humans than supernatural creatures, members are allowed 1 supernatural creature for every 1 human. You are, of course, allowed to have more humans than that if you'd like. This may be further limited as time goes on if we feel too overrun with supernaturals and not enough humans.
-Once you post your application you do not have to wait to be accepted before you start playing as long as you understand that some adjustments might be asked of you before your characters is officially accepted.
-We are writing in liquid time. This means you can have threads in the past or slightly in the future and we are only generally tracking a vague sense of time. In general we keep with the same time/season as in real life (based in the United States)
-We prefer writing to be done in third person and past tense. I.E. "He turned around to see her" instead of "I turn around to see her".
-We have no set level of writing or word count requirement!
-Do not control other members' characters or NPCs without their permission. Godmodding/Powerplaying. Always write in a way that expresses attempt to do something. i.e. "He moved to take her hand." instead of "He took her hand in his." Likewise, your character is not all-knowing. They shouldn't know everything that YOU know based on reading narration in another member's reply.
