While plotting out the story for this RP, I've thought of some additional rules that I would like everyone to read.
In Character Chat, Out of Character Chat, and Questions
In Character Chat: This is what 98% of the RP should be in. If your character wants to ask "How much for that rifle?" Then this is In Character Chat. ICC shouldn't be a modified colour.
Out of Character Chat: This is when you want to tell a player (not his/her character) something. Like announcing that you won't be able to post on the RP tomorrow. Out of Character Chat (OCC) should be shown in green font colour.
Questions: This is for questions directed at me, so things like "I want to shoot that mutant, but did it dart around the corner or can I still see it?". Questions should be shown in blue font colour.
Preforming Actions: When a character preforms an action that would require something to do with a perk (eg. Fixing a broken flashlight) then they have to finish there entry into the action thread without a result. Example:
What not to do:
"After pulling all the necessary gear out of my backpack, I begin working on fixing this broken flashlight. It appears that the wires are broken, and are easily replaced (-1 extra wiring).
What to do instead:
"After pulling all the necessary gear out of my backpack, I begin working on fixing this broken flashlight. I wonder what's wrong with it, so open it up to find out..."
To which I will respond:
"It appears that the wires are broken and should be easily replaced. (-1 extra wiring)."
You will then have the option of: a. Replace the broken wires and remove the extra wiring from your inventory (I will keep track of this in case you don't want too). Or b. Decide that the extra wiring could be better used elsewhere and pack all the gear back up.
Also note: This rule applies to everything that would require a perk to be used. Opening a door (if you can find one) doesn't require the use of this rule for example.
Edit: We have four players, this is enough to get started, but before we do, I want to ask every member if they think four is enough, or if they would like to wait for more. So please respond ASAP as I will wait for everyone to have a say before I start the action thread.
Freedom is the will to say two plus two is four, if that is true, then all else follows. -1984 by George Orwell
