Nobody likes too much rules, so we aren’t going to write a book. However, we encourage you to thoroughly read them because there are specific instructions you’d have to follow to have your character approved. It would also be beneficial for you to understand and accept that the rules can be changed at any time for the sake of the forum and its community. If any changes are made, instructions for the application approval will be changed and members will be notified of the changes.
Spam will not be allowed; consider spam as an acronym for Stupid, Pointless, and Annoying Messages. We will not tolerate trolls. Just because they are stuck living in their parents’ basement eating stale Cheetos doesn’t mean they can ruin the fun of the game for us. Get out and stay out! While swearing is permitted In Character, please keep it to a minimum Out of Character. If you aren’t going to participate in our community, then don’t join. It’s annoying when someone registers and then disappears without a word, and it really dampens everyone’s moods. We are not too strict about activity, but it would be great if you logged in on all your accounts at least twice a week. Advertise only in the designated areas; advertising elsewhere will be considered spam and can result in a ban. The most important rule is to respect one another and have fun! We’re all friends here – family, like the packs of Ambrose ’s favorite animal. Here’s a quick trivia for you; what is the Italian translation for the name of this animal?
Please remember that Areion is 5 years old in-game from its founding. Students can be anywhere from 11 through 16 years old. Mentor characters and other staff can be anywhere from 17 and older, within logic. For instance, your 17-year-old character can be a caretaker or gardener, but your mentor character would need a couple of years or more at a college to become a licensed teacher. Face claims must be celebrities, including actors, models, and singers. Unless you have their last name, don’t use candid models off modeling websites and the likes. Don’t use anyone from porn sites either. We have members under 18, so don’t even try it. Don’t use anime or video-game characters too. You would only invoke our wrath. There are no character limits; you can make as many as you would like. However, you must keep them all active. If we feel that you’re neglecting one or more characters too much, we would ask you to put your focus on those characters. Upon posting your application, please wait for one of the staff members to send you a message.
Power-playing, the process of controlling another player’s character without written consent, is not allowed. Neither is god-modding, where the character would seem too powerful against anything. Everyone has a weakness. Don’t kill off characters unless it’s allowed by the respective player. Written consent between the two or more parties must be presented upon request so there aren’t any arguments. Mature threads will be restricted since we are considerably a PG-13 forum where most characters would be children. The school is in Italy, where Out of Character the age of consent is 14. However, In Character, and for our sake, the age of consent will be 16 where the students would be in their last year at school. Teens of all ages would obviously experiment, but we would rather not have that kind of action in sight! Be coy but obvious. Adult characters can have mature threads, but they must “fade to black.” Mentions of nudity, drug use, and violence can be included, but none should be too detailed. There is no word count requirement when writing In Character. However, we ask that you write at least one or two paragraphs per post so that other players have enough detail to work with in their replies. Try to give back what you receive too. Remember, no character is perfect. Everyone has their own unique flaws. Speaking of flaws, one of the biggest flaws in creatures of all sorts is the fact that beheading them generally leads to death. There is one exception to this though, which is one of ❆ AVALORE ’s favorite myths. Irish in origin, what is the name of the headless rider?
Nudity in pictures will result in a ban! Remember, we have members under 18 and the theme of the roleplay, inspired by the Potterverse, is a unique school of magic for teens. Such pictures would also be in violation of the ProBoards Terms of Service. Underwear pictures are questionable at best, so please don’t use them. Swimwear pictures are fine though. Hover images should be 200X400. Break our dimensions and we will break you. Avatars are 150X150. Gifs are optional. Either way, avatars must be a closeup of your character’s face. Don’t steal pictures to hang on your wall. None of the pictures, except for those designed as part of the template, are our own work!
