RP: Cosmology: Dawn RP Sign-up & Info: "Cosmology: Dawn" Sign-up & Info This is the OOC thread, please keep all OOC here! Additional rules: Forum rules. No violence No power-playing (taking control of someone else's OC), unless EXPLICIT permission is given, by either said player or by one of the GM's. NO Game Moderating unless you are on the Game Moderating list! (To be created as necessary) If you must swear, please try to be reasonable about it. If you're speaking in a foreign language, give a translation ooc. No real-world politics or religion. Please write more than just one or two words per post. Please PARTICIPATE. If you cannot participate, tell me and I will remove your name from the list. No attacking other players. Characters can attack one another, factions can go to war, but at the end of a day, it's just a game. Obviously, I can and will change rules whenever people try to bend or go around them, so none of that. For Gods only: Everyone is a god/goddess. Your Realm is not only your power, but your responsibility. If something goes wrong and it's in YOUR realm, it's YOUR responsibility to fix it. Unless you decide otherwise, but don't assume the other gods are just going to sit around watching the world end just because you fail to act. Everyone has to say what their power is, limited to a certain Realm. For instance, heat, life, plants, water, etc. No controlling other gods' realms. Gods start out at equal, realm-omnipotent levels of power. If deicide (killing gods) becomes enough of a problem that people are complaining to me, I'll make it so that NOBODY can so much as touch one another or even themselves AT ALL, only affect creation and maybe ruin someone else's work. That would mean no affecting other gods physically, mentally, emotionally or in any other way aside from talking. Please don't make me do that. Every action has a tangible effect on creation, and excessive horseplay can result in destroying creation and forcing you to rebuild it again. No, you can't just say "let there be humans", unless you already have all the prerequisites, like air and food, or unless you change the characteristics of "human" to not need any of that. Otherwise, you'll have to get in there and shape the reality yourself. It's a long process. If you're going to be doing evil things to your creations, just say it was evil and don't go into too much detail. We don't need paragraph upon paragraph of gore and rape and torture, unless everyone else wants that, and I personally don't want that. You can go wrecking reality, but I won't stop everyone else from ganging up on you to undo your changes. Remember that as reality gets more complicated, it also gets more fragile. If you're going to swear, please try to be reasonable about it. See the rule about being evil. No leaving the dimension or grabbing things from other dimensions, unless you've already created another dimension, and the thing you're grabbing. Time, however, is changeable IF AND ONLY IF you are: a) the god of Time/associated realm, or b) within your Place of Power, that is, whatever you deem to be "your" throne and dwelling, as much as that can apply to a god. Think Olympus. And no, the entire world cannot qualify as your place of power alone, when it gets created, since it would presumably be a team effort. Gods use bold text when interfacing with mortals or non-gods. This should cut down on potential confusion when there's a large number of characters speaking. For Mortals: No excessive depictions of violence, please. You can slaughter every inhabitant in the city if you like, but we don't need all the intricate details. If you're going to swear, again, please be reasonable. Insulting a God can and often will get your OC smited. They're GODS. Do as you wish, but remember you are MORTALS. Mortals don't get to have realms unless a god allows it. Mortals don't get God powers unless a god bequeath it, in which case you probably should fall under the "demigod" category rather than mortal. If you want powers, ask first please. Mortals can't so much as TOUCH or affect Gods in any way, shape, or form, as a general rule. Exceptions are on a case by case basis, and usually involves a lot of player consent and extraordinary circumstances. That means you cannot affect gods physically, mentally, emotionally or in any other way aside from talking. Gods, however, can give Mortals power if you ask VERY, VERY NICELY. Violation of any of the above or any of the Forum Rules will result in being reported and banned from the game. Only the GM and assistant GMs can run the game. If you think you are qualified to help out, please PM me or assistants. Please sign up before playing. Keep OOC in the OOC thread. All rules and conditions subject to change at any time by GM and assistants. ******* Happy worldbuilding!
