Register an OOC account. You may use whatever name you want, but it should be the one you use in the shoutbox. For each characters, you must create a new account through the subaccount mod, with their full name in proper capitalization. If you do not know how to do this, there is a tutorial that can be found in the same board than these rules.

Choose one of the two ways to submit a character. If you choose to post, do not modify the template at all, so that all the required information is there. Be sure to meet the requirement on the sheet, and to make a character that is balanced, rather than a Mary Sue/Gary Stu. Rewrite of canons with a different name will be asked to modify their sheet to make their character more unique. Work in progress (WIP) that are posted and left untouched for 10 days will be archived. Under no circumstances will there be a character under 18 years old. Characters may be of any gender identity and sexual orientation.

Posting should be done in the third person, always. Post should aim for quality of language (grammar, syntax, lack of typo) and quantity of content for your partner to work with. It doesn't matter if you take 100 words or 1000 to express your ideas, as Into The Black has no word count, but we will not tolerate one-liners. Time is fluid here. You can involve your characters in multiple threads at once, as long as they do not happen at the same time in the timeline. Be careful of Godmodding (moving someone else's character) of metagaming (Using knowledge acquired OOCly, ICly) and powerplaying (no one is unbreakable/unkillable). Mark the thread with the proper prefix if it contains Mature content.

Added 04/18/2017:
Because of the nature of the game, if one member of a crew does not post when their turn comes in group threads, it stall the RP for the ship as a whole. After a 10 day period, their turn is skipped. 1x1 thread do not apply.

Avatars are 150px by 200px. Signatures may not stretch the board, or be higher than 300px. Also, even though this is an adult board, please refrain from posting images that are pornographic in nature.

Final Word
The community is meant to be laid back and respectful. Should something arise, bring it up to Cynadea in a PM. Be sure that you and your partner see eye to eye regarding a far down the erotic path you both want to go, if you go there at all.

Please note that if enough suspicion that you are not at least 18 years old arise, the admin reserve the right to question your age and possibly result in a ban.

Thank you.
