- 3-3-3 Rating.
DBD allows graphic use of language, as well as uncensored portrayal of violence and sexual content. It is up to players to specify what they are comfortable with.
- No Word Count
DBD staff enforce neither a minimum nor maximum word count for posts.
- Face Claims / Play bys are not required
Members are welcome to use original and commissioned art work to represent their characters.
- Account Per Character
Due to the nature of our profile options, DBD is an account per character site. All accounts can be linked to a Parent account in the user control panel for easy toggling. OOC accounts are encouraged, but not required.
Once the required character profile fields are completed post with their account in our http://deadbeforedaylight.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=1289&st=0entry8359 thread and tag DragonBlue so the account may be sorted into the appropriate group (i.e. human, skinwalker etc)
***Members do not have to wait for sorting to begin threading!***
- Optional Profile Templates
Players who wish to do so may complete a free form character profile to be added to the character directory boards.
- If utilized, Play Bys/Face Claims must be represented by real people
No cartoon or anime characters will be allowed. Duplicate face claims are not allowed, with exception to identical twins when agreed upon by both parties involved. Formerly utilized face claims from deceased or inactive characters are fair game unless otherwise specified in our claim directory.
- There is no age requirement for face claims.
- Stock images may be utilized.
Each player's points are cumulative between all accounts, and therefore MAY be combined in order to purchase items from the store
- We enforce a soft character cap of 12 characters.
After 12 characters, players may purchase additional character slots in the store. Therefore, players can create as many characters as they wish, this is just a light measure to ensure activity.
- Liquid Time.
Characters may be in multiple threads at once, and threads may be done both past and present. It is up to the player to keep track of their progress.
- No meta-gaming.
Out of character information is meant to be kept out of character. We all have access to the lists of hunters, humans, and werewolves. Please do not use that information IC unless learned through in character events. Character interactions in the cbox or discord do not apply in game unless explicitly agreed upon by all parties, or unless they occur on the In Character Server.
- No unapproved powerplaying
Make sure to get the okay from fellow player(s) before assuming control of their character
- Establish Post Orders in Group Threads.
When creating group threads, establish whether or not there is going to be a posting order for participants. If an order is established, specify how long a player has to post before the thread continues (i.e. 3 days, 1 week etc). Do not skip a player's post without clearing it with them first.
- Ranking Characters:
A member may have more than one ranking character, but may only have one high ranking character per faction.
