Hello, my darlings! Some of you have been here long enough to recall us openly talking about doing this back in July, and here it finally is.AN AU BOX(although it's really more of a present for me but whatever it's fine whatever)
Of course, with a new box comes some new, very important
rules, so make sure you read them before hopping right in.
-- As always, please be kind and courteous towards your fellow RPers. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated, so on and so forth.
-- This is an open box,
much like the CR is. Please try your very best to not exclude anyone from play.
-- This is also a TEMPORARY box. We'll be gauging interest, but as of now, the box will remain in play between 01/03 - 01/17
. If there is sufficient attention being paid to it, we'll extend it to the end of the month, otherwise it'll be converted to just your average RP box.
-- Nothing that goes on in this box is CANON-COMPLIANT.
Which means, if someone gets stabbed in the AU box, I fucking better not be hearing about it in the CR.
-- AU characters are encouraged
. Of any sort. De-aging older characters, aging-up younger ones, taking your character from a different canon-point, turning them into a cat, whatever it may be, you are absolutely free to do it here.
-- That being said, you may not
play AU versions of someone else's character. Even with permission. DO NOT DO IT.
-- You are
allowed to play characters that have not been accepted yet. Keep in mind that this does NOT
count as a reserve and/or you 'staking your claim' on the character. It's just a place to experiment, so go wild.
-- Please limit yourself to playing one character in the box at a time!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask!
I know, I know, you guys all looooove doing journals and you can't imagine a world where you didn't have to constantly keep your shit updated, and you are so totally free to keep doing that.
BUT, because it worked pretty well in December, we were going to try converting journal-checks into just a normal check-in every month, starting now.
This hinges on a few things -- if activity is noticeably down, and if people are sitting on characters they haven't played literally all month. But we trust you guys enough to be responsible for dropping your own characters if you know you aren't going to play them.
Addy, who was acting as a temporary admin in my stead, is stepping down. Please give her lots of smooches for doing a very good job. (And also give Tape lots of smooches for continuing to do an amazing job wow that Tape, so sexy, so fine).
Our loveliest member, Twisty, has made a map of Belgate! You can find it right here.
Give her the warmest snuggles.
Thank you, and have a fantastic day.
