SIM RULES

    1. OOC AGE MUST BE 18+ TO PLAY ON THIS SIM AS THE SIM HAS AN ADULT RATING. THE SIM WILL HAVE ADULT THEMES AND SEXUAL CONTENT. SEXUAL CONTENT SHOULD BE KEPT TO RENTALS AND PROPER ESTABLISHMENTS.

    2. CHARACTER AGE MUST NOT BE LOWER THAN 15 YEARS OF AGE AND AGE MUST BE DISPLAYED AT ALL TIMES. AS WELL, ANY CHARACTER THAT IS UNDERAGE CANNOT ENTER THE TERRITORIES OF THE HOUNSI, GATORMEN, OR CONSILIUM OR CLUB 23 AND MAY NOT LEAVE THE WARDEN TERRITORY WITHOUT AN ADULT ESCORT. ANY INFRACTION AGAINST THIS WILL BE MET WITH A WARNING FOR 1ST OFFENSE, REVOCATION OF CHILD AVI PRIVILAGES OR TEMP BAN, AND A PERMANENT BAN FOR 3RD OFFENSE.

    3. THIS IS A PARTIAL NON-CONSENT ROLEPLAYING SIM. IN CHARACTER ACTIONS EQUAL IN CHARACTER CONSEQUENCES. DEATH AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE WILL NOT BE MODERATED UNLESS IN EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES.

      As spontaneous and unpredictable role-play situations can be, all players are entitled to personal limits. If your character is interacting with another, every action you post must always be an attempt, or what you are trying to do to the other character. This gives the other player flexibility and chances to either accept or deflect what you are trying to do to them. Violent scenes are especially handled this way. If you are uncomfortable with a scene, message the other player and inform them immediately. To do so is your responsibility. If you find yourself unable to continue playing, message the other player and indicate you want to “fade to black” (agree to skip details and jump to conclusion).
      Once someone informs you the direction the scene is taking is making them uncomfortable or they’d rather not have such a thing done to their character, respect their wishes. However, every IC action will lead to an IC consequence – no one is invulnerable, or above the law of the sim’s fiction. If a player breaks one of their own limits during a scene, they will have to remove said limit for any future interaction with the character(s) involved in said scene.
      Example: Anne has a no mutilation limit, however she emotes an attempt at cutting another character’s hand. The player of said character can attempt to cut a limb from Anne’s character any time after such a thing and story allowing they might succeed in it too.
      All in all, the basic principle of having limits is to protect players from stress over writing unpleasant scenes, not from consequences. The moment you choose to roleplay something towards another character, you are automatically stating you are all right with it being done to your character, nothing more and nothing less, so always be mindful of your character’s actions because it is usual they will come back around.
    4. THIS SIM IS A PARAGRAPH ROLEPLAYING SIM. THAT MEANS ONE SHOULD EXPECT AT LEAST A PARAGRAPH OR MORE PER POST. THIS DOES NOT MEAN ONE CANNOT USE ONE LINERS, BUT THAT ONE LINERS SHOULD BE UTILIZED SPARINGLY.

    5. NUDITY IS ALLOWED IN IC AREAS, THOUGH NOT ENCOURAGED DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE SETTING. BUT IF YOU WISH TO BE NUDE, BE PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES. NO NUDITY ALLOWED IN THE LANDING ZONE.

    6. OBSERVER TAGS ARE REQUIRED TO BE WORN IF YOU ARE NOT IN CHARACTER. AN OBSERVER TAG WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE LANDING ZONE. IF PLAYERS DO NOT WISH YOU TO OBSERVE A SCENE, BE RESPECTFUL OF THEIR WISHES AND WITHDRAW FROM THE SCENE. IF YOU’RE IN CHARACTER, YOU MUST WEAR A TITLER DISPLAYING YOUR CHARACTER NAME, RACE, AND AGE AT THE LEAST.

    7. PLEASE JOIN THE OOC GROUP FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THE SIM. ADMINS, GMS, AND PLAYERS WILL HELP ANSWER THEM.

    8. PLAYERS MAY HAVE AS MANY CHARACTERS AS THEY WISH.

    9. READ THE LORE. THE LORE WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE SETTING, THE SIM, AND THE AESTHETIC WE’RE AIMING FOR. ALL IC SIM INFORMATION WILL BE LISTED UNDER THE SETTING DROP DOWN ON THE WEBSITE.

    10. PLAYERS ARE EXPECTED TO OBSERVE THE TOS FOR SECOND LIFE AT ALL TIMES, NO EXCEPTIONS. ANY VIOLATION WILL BE MET WITH SWIFT ACTION BY THE STAFF.

    11. CHARACTER APPEARANCES SHOULD BE HUMAN. GHOULS MAY APPEAR DECAYED, OLD, AND NOSELESS.

    12. CHARACTER DRESS CODE SHOULD FIT WITHIN THE SETTING, THAT INCLUDES MODERN CLOTHING, DISTRESSED CLOTHING, POST APOC CLOTHING, AND WESTERN CLOTHING. VINTAGE 50’S STYLES ARE A BONUS. NO FANTASY, NO OVERT SCIFI.

    13. CHARACTERS CANNOT SHARE NAMES, LIKENESSES, OR OTHER MATERIAL FROM COPYRIGHTED PROPERTIES. ALL CHARACTERS SHOULD BE ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE.

    14. MINIMIZE HAVING MULTIPLE LAGGY ITEMS ATTACHED, SUCH AS WEAPONS, HUDS, AND OTHER DEVICES THAT ARE NOT NECESSARY TO THE ROLEPLAY. SCRIPTED ATTACHED PETS ARE ALLOWED SO LONG AS THEY’RE NOT OVERLY LAGGY. CHECK THE AVATAR IMPACT MONITOR IN THE LANDING ZONE IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS OVER YOUR SCRIPT USAGE.

    15. MINIMIZE YOUR AVATARS COMPLEXITY TO AT LEAST 200,000 TOTAL. ANY HIGHER AND MANY PLAYERS WILL BE UNABLE TO SEE YOU.

    16. THE ROLEPLAY LIMITS OF OTHER PLAYERS SHOULD BE RESPECTED WITHIN REASON. WHILE THE SIM LACKS CONSENT REQUIREMENTS FOR A NUMBER OF ACTIONS, EVERY PLAYER MAY STILL HAVE LIMITS THEY OBSERVE. IF ROLEPLAY YOU’RE INVOLVED IN GOES INTO THEMES OR ACTIONS YOU DISLIKE OR ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH, YOU MAY UTILIZE THE FADE TO BLACK MECHANISM TO ACCELERATE TIME TO AFTER THE EVENT TOOK PLACE. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN AVOID THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS, ONLY THAT THE DETAILS WERE NOT EXPLICITLY STATED. THE CONSEQUENCES AND EVENTS STILL HAPPEN REGARDLESS AND YOU AS A PLAYER MUST REACT ACCORDINGLY.

    17. GODMODING AND METAGAMING ARE TO BE AVOIDED. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE MET WITH SWIFT ACTION BY THE STAFF. TYPICAL METAGAMING HABITS INCLUDE SUCH THINGS AS UTILIZING OOC INFORMATION YOU AS A PLAYER HAVE BUT YOUR CHARACTER DOES NOT FOR IC BENEFIT, USING OOC MEANS TOG ET OUT OF IC CONSEQUENCES, AND SHARING INFORMATION BETWEEN YOUR ALTS. GODMODING IS TYPICALLY THE USAGE OF OTHER PLAYERS CHARACTERS AND ROLEPLAYING THEIR ACTIONS AGAINST THE WISHES OF THE OWNING PLAYER AS WELL AS UTILIZING THE RULES AND SYSTEMS TO GAIN AN ADVANTAGE OVER OTHERS AT THE EXPENSE OF ROLEPLAY.

 18: DEATH/PERMANENT MUTILATION OF CHARACTERS AND SEXUAL ACTIONS ARE COMPLETELY UP TO THE PLAYER WHO’S CHARACTER IS BEING EFFECTED. IF CONSENT IS NOT EXTENDED, THE ACTIONS WILL NOT, OR DID NOT OCCUR. FADING TO BLACK IS AN ACCEPTABLE COMPROMISE IF COMPROMISE IS REQUESTED. STAFF WILL /NOT/ ARBITRATE PLAYER DISPUTES REGARDING DEATH, PERMANENT MUTILATION, OR SEXUAL CONDUCT. IF PLAYERS CAN’T COME TO A CONCLUSION, IT WILL BE RETCONNED.
