Member Rules

*-* Our Member Rules *-*


We are a strict group in the essence that our roleplay is our roleplay. We do not intermingle our personal feelings with our story writing. We have a set of roles which apply and we expect all whom enter our site to follow them. See below and on the General Forum board, post your agreeance to our rules.


Below is The Fellowship Alliance Code of Conduct Contract. Read, as is required, and fill in the Typist-Required message thread accordingly. By signing the Typist-Required, you state you are adhering to all the rules stipulated below. If the rules are too stringent, then please think of the following... We are a very creative group and wish to have enjoyment from our everyday lives in creating fantasy with twists and turns that wouldn't normally occur. We seek to have enjoyment with others and to -stop- the tirade seen on MSN with their players and their Security Commission.

1. I must remember this is just a game. Once I leave my computer or shut it off, it is over. Remember this is an outlet to have fun. IRL and OOC are to stay out of the Chatroom and the Storyline Messageboards. If I have a problem with someone, I will go to them, take it up with them, and NOT play the vendetta card in attempt to turn everyone against that person. I understand I could find myself out on my arse, if I do. **NOTE** Depending on the severity of the trouble caused, I could either get a warning, a suspension, or flat out banishment.

2. The STs, GMs and Site Owners are the final say. If I have a point of contention with one, then I shall direct my questions or complaints to that STs, GMs and Site Owners with respect. Once the final decision has been made, then take it gracefully, whether I like it or not.

3. In the game, it is the game not personal. In the Chatroom and the Storyline Messageboards, Real Life and Out of Character comments should be kept to a minimum. In the website, post in one of the ooc message boards or contact the person via IM or email. In the chatrooms, I will place my statements within grouping symbols, in IM or in whisper.

4. If RL gets in the way. There is drama that my characters will go through in a game, so bringing in Real life drama is not permitted. KEEP the two SEPERATE. If I cannot keep it separate, I will take a break, step away, then come back when it ends.

5. I shall not overstep the bounds... The purpose of participating in or playing a game is to have FUN. The purpose is not to belittle those within the roleplay.

6. Find out if something is valid or not FIRST. The STs, GMs and Site Owners, as a GROUP, will decide what is and is not valid. Invalid characters will be asked to be corrected. If an ST asks me to make my character valid, I will work with him or her. He or she most likely is making sure that the group as a whole is enjoying themselves. Invalid characters tend to lend to a negativity that hinders the enjoyment of gameplay.

7. I will check the Rules on Characters. We, as the Fellowship Alliance and leaders and owners of The Eternal Night, have gone through and decided what we will and will not accept in RP, with the help of other knowledgeable voices. If it is not listed here, then it CANNOT be played in the rooms or on the messageboards as a rule. STs, GMs and Site Owners may allow the use of player written items, BUT, the site MUST have a copy of the written item, must go over it for legality, and MUST approve it (that means in here and documented) so that all will know what the item is capable of.

8. I shan't park. "Parkers" are not permitted in our chatrooms. If I or one of my friends needs to step away, I will let an ST or Hammer know so that they do not boot me out of the room for just sitting at away for minutes on end.

9. I am responsible for MY age. This may be a game, BUT it is a game that is mature in content and nature. If I say I am 18 and I am not, I understand I run the risk of being removed from the game and my storylines killed/removed for the protection of the group.

10. I am, in all ways, responsible for me. STs, GMs and Site Owners are NOT responsible for the things I may or may not see. I am responsible for my own actions.

11. Copyrights will be adhered to. STs, GMs and Site Owners wish to make sure that all that have contributed to the roleplays, whether it be by pictures or rules or gaming system get credit for their works. Typists need to use 'real' pictures for their characters; i.e. No artist pics. No matter what.

AS TO FURTHER NOTE OF THIS WEBSITE. THIS IS A MATURE WEBSITE, 18 YEARS AND OLDER ONLY NEED TO APPLY. THE SITE OWNERS, STs, AND GMs ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ITS MEMBERS. WE WILL, THOUGH, POLICE THE WEBSITE FROM THOSE THAT WOULD HARASS OR BERATE OTHERS WITHIN. IF YOU ARE NOT 18 OR OLDER THAN YOU SHOULD NOT BE HERE. THIS IS A WORLD OF DARKNESS ROLEPLAY, NOT A FAIRYTALE PLACE WHERE EVERTHING TURNS OUT ROSES. THERE WILL BE SEX AND VIOLENCE, AND NOT JUST WITH THE R-RATING ATTACHED.

IT IS ADVISED THAT IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO EXPERIENCE CERTAIN THINGS IN THE ROLEPLAY THREADS OR ROOM PLAYS THAT YOU ARE INVOLVED IN, THEN SPEAK OUT. THE SITE OWNER, STs, AND GMs WILL NOT STOP WHAT OTHERS WISH TO HAVE IN THEIR STORYLINES, IF THE OFFENDED PARTY IS NOT INVOLVED WITH THEM.

BEST ADVICE: IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SOMETHING, DO NOT READ IT.
