Some Role-playing notes
« on: November 29, 2004, 10:27:41 PM »

A few notes, since RPing has taken a bit of root again.

First off, in general, points earned or lost in the course of an RP story do not count for or against your house. You can earn points for good RP or lose them for bad, but the points you lose in the story should be confined only to the story. There have been a couple of exceptions to this, but they will be corrected, and in the future this will be the rule.

RPs feature students as heros in their own stories, so the students are often able to get away with a lot more than they would normally. We ask that you please confine this sort of behavior to the RP threads. Blasting statues, insulting professors, etc, while acceptable and not necessarily dock-worthy in RP threads, may elicit point-docks in non-RP threads.

Some good guidelines for RPs are to make sure that you don't do something harmful to another character without that person's permission. Don't break bones, maim, or kill another character unless you have their express permission.

Don't try to solve the problem all in one post, all by yourself. Let the other participants post and be involved and enjoy themselves and contribute to a solution.

Try not to post other characters doing things that they wouldn't normally.

However, also try to roll with the flow. If someone posts your character doing something you wouldn't normally do, try to take it in stride and come up with a reason for it and play through it.

These are just some general guidelines to keep in mind. Please post if you have thoughts or questions or complaints.

Oo ... points in RPs stay in RPs? Good to know!

Anyway, will keep those in mind. :)
