:bulletblack: As much as we want you all to have fun, in order for there to be success, there has to be a little structure.

RULES:

1. Follow the basic dAmn rules: That's a pretty basic one. You can find the link to those here !

2. Make sure to become a member before you begin RPing!: If you want to be a part of our roleplaying community, you have to submit a character and be approved before anything! Don't worry, though, as long as you follow some simple character rules (a link to this will be implimented later) you will have no problem being approved!

3. Respect any and all members of the chat!: Obviously, you'll be removed swiftly if you're guilty of flaming, bullying, or needless arguing. Us as admins have seen plenty of unnecessary bickering in our day and aren't too approving of such silliness. Just be a nice and agreeable person and you'll have no problem.

4. No mature RP in the public chat.: Of course, it may be a little fun to roleplay maturely (or lemon as some may put it), but some of us may be offended by such mature content. So please, be respectful and venture off to your own private chatrooms. (You can ask me, Violaurora, to use some of my spare chatrooms if you need it!)

5. Please speak English within the chat.: Although it is easier to speak your first (or perhaps second language), many users on deviantART speak English. I know the woes of it myself, being one who prefers to speak Russian (my second language), but I realize not all people can understand me.

|The DO'S and DON'T'S of RPing in Fairkeep!|

1. DoNt TyPe LiKe ThIs!!!: I realize it's fun, but this aint no homestuck RP. This includes l33t speak, subtext, or anything like that. If you want your text to stand out, please use bold italics or use the /me prompt in-chat. If you don't know how to do these things, ask one of us and I'm sure we'll be glad to help!

2. Do not kill of another Roleplayer's character without permission!: Yes, the elimination of a character can be so thrilling! But only when you have exchanged an agreement between the 2(+) of you that it's well within your consent. Its never fun to be robbed of your character without permission, so just don't do this!

3.Do translate your character's language!: What I mean by this is if your character is from another country and speaks another language, please add an english translation for all of us to understand. If you or another user know the same language, that is all well and good! But anyone else participating with you or anyone looking into your roleplay may want that information. Just add a translation with it and all is good! (This corresponds with rule 5 of the chatroom rules.)

4. DO NOT GODMOD: Any avid roleplayer knows this rule like the back of their hand. If you're new to roleplaying, god modding is the unfair alteration of a character to be impenatrable -- or invincible -- by any outside force. Or, better put by urban dictionary:
"God Modding is in essence when someone’s character has the ability to do practically anything without limits or boundaries. And example is when they simply cannot be harmed by any and all means other RP-ers try. " Make sense? We all need weaknesses in our characters, enough for them to be relatable and there always has to be an opportunity for the character to fail as well as succeed!

5.Try to use proper grammar in your posts!: We don't mind the occasional misspelling, but if it's a common offense, we might take you aside and ask you to get a spell checker. Its no fun to RP with someone who doesn't put forth the effort. Its not a very hard thing to ask.

(There are obviously more rules to come. We'll leave updates in the chatroom if and when we update!)
