Here at Initium, we hope to maintain an inclusive environment in which you can enjoy the spontaneity, excitement, and fun in cooperative storytelling without the hassle of arbitrary rules, micromanagement, and petty behavior. We value mutual respect and an interest in various elements of plot lines, character development and exploration, and world-building.
In order to reach our goal of maintaining a stress-free and engaging environment, I have written the following conduct reminders (with a couple of organizational/functional things) to help you figure out how the business end of things works around here. For the most part, this just addresses the fuzzier parts of conduct to make sure you understand the finer details of our one expectation, which is- to put it very simply- to be respectful and courteous.
I trust that you're a mature and intelligent person who means well, and I want to treat you as such! Any conduct issues that may arise will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Note that a staff member may address behavior that doesn't go against an explicitly stated rule. That doesn't mean we're going to invent a word minimum, hide it from you, then ban you for posting 200 words instead of 500. That does mean that we reserve the right to address any malicious behavior that interferes with the quality of our game and community.
The following information has been written with the assumption that new players coming in have some experience with PbP roleplaying and know the basic dos and don'ts, making related 'rules' unnecessary. If you feel like you need to know more about how to roleplay, send me a PM!
Enjoy the game!
[*] Keep all advertising in the Advertising forum.
[*] Please let us know if you're going to be away.
[*] Please adhere to the Invisionfree Terms of Service as well as possible. Consider Initium a PG-13 rated environment, if the comparison helps.
[*] Refrain from controlling the characters of others without the permission of their player(s) and avoid standard RP misconduct.
[*] Write in-character posts in third person, past tense. (For continuity's sake)
Registration and Extras
[*] Register new accounts with your characters' first and last names with proper capitalization, please (ie. John Doe). Make a separate account for each character.
[*] Apply with the template provided.
Please note that these rules may be altered at any time (there will be notification), and issues which are not covered explicitly by these rules may be addressed. Any problems will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

P.S. Jeff says your character can't say 'frak' unless it's in direct reference to Battlestar Galactica.
