The Rules for Roleplaying are simple and must be followed at all times:

  4. No forced breeding is allowed.
  5. Fighting is only permitted if both parties want to fight.
  6. God Modding is not allowed.
  7. If you are roleplaying in the Group Roleplay, please be welcoming towards other members who want to participate.
  8. The Group Roleplay is not a chatroom. All content entered should be part of the story and nothing else.
  9. Do not invite members to RP offsite to get around the rules. That is considered predator behavior and results in an Account ban.
  10. Advertising of any other game/RP site is not allowed.
  11. Fandom Roleplays (Warrior Cats, Harry Potter, Marvel, etc) are not allowed on the Forum. You can roleplay a similar idea, but without content from the fandom.

If you want to roleplay fandoms, you may do so in your game mail, or in the Group Roleplay.
