The rules are usually explained at the beginning of each role-play, I'll post the first post to one of my role-plays mainly because it was well established and did well in the forums. Over 489 pages and over 7335 posts in the role-play. I think it did well.

My next post on here will not be the absolute rules, and you don't have to have them in every Roleplay you have, but they should be rather fundamental.

Commissioner Jim Gordon, a loving father, the uprising cop, the total overall badass has been murdered. All evidence leads to the murderer leads to the one and only Batman. Has he been framed? Or did he really kill the Commissioner? If so why? Will you side with The Batman? Or side with justice?

Thats right folks! The Third and final Installment to the Epic Roleplay that all started with Abreu7's awesome Roleplay, The New Titans. This is the sequel to my own Roleplay, Gotham City's Midnight Riders. If you haven't had the chance to play either of those RPs, this is your chance. Before we begin lets talk about the rules I'm going to lay out.

The rule that is above all rules is that you must READ the rules. After all, the rules are not meant to be broken and are in fact expected to be followed very carefully. If you break a rule you will be considered for being striped of your privileges for posting. That or I will without question delete your post.

These are the rules in which every player shall abide by.

Rule 1 - Respect Each Other
There will be no flaming or insulting each other. If you can't follow this simple rule just once you will no longer be able to take part in this Role Play.

Rule 2 - No Ridiculous Characters
When you post your character sheet for your Original Character, make sure that your character isn't God-Incarnate. Invincibility is boring and cheap, and common, even Superman has his weaknesses that is apparently overabundant. Really don't overpower your character!

Rule 3 - No Spotlight
Making yourself better than everyone else and creating an arch for yourself is self-centered and conceited. Simply put, no main characters. Don't be a jerk to everyone.

Rule 4 - Spellcheck and Grammar
When you post be sure that your post has good grammar. Reread your post, process it through spellcheck. Its not going to be the end of the world if you take a little extra time in posting. Doing this will make the RP a better place to post. In addition to this rule, read other's posts! We work hard on them, so don't skip them!

Rule 5 - Thought out characters
When making your OC be sure its nothing like "He's been raised by a pack of wolves!" or "Their parents died in a cliché and overused car crash!" The point of calling a character original is to be original. I will in fact deny all characters that I seem too cliché. You must put a lot of work into your characters and it will make the RP better off.

Those are the staples of my RP, here are additional rules too..

Keep in mind!
-Killing is aloud as long as both members agree to it, but then the character who died can create a new character for replacement.
-Dual Roleplay Characters are encouraged! Just keep up with all of them and you'll be fine!
-Regaurding Costumes! No T-shirt and Jeans! Sorry guys, but I want you to look like superheroes in tights.
-Do not control other player's characters without their consent or permission! The last thing we need is confusion!
-Read everyone's Character Sheets so you know who you're dealing with!
-Preemptive strikes are not allowed! If you slice off someone's arm that would force the opposing player to play the rest of the RP armless. Be fair, do not instantly throw another player in a jam, let the other player chose the damage done to the character.
[Example: Alice shot Karmy in her stomach that penetrated into her spine, paralyzing her for life. THIS IS NOT ALLOWED!]

(-I noticed some of the players of this specific RP doesn't use one thing when posting, I restrain from saying who but I will ask of you to please use LOGIC when posting!)

Follow the rules and you'll be golden!

Well if it's dice based then it's not going to happen. The hit is decided by the die.

The simple answer to no calling hits nor preemptive strikes is that you can't get another character without the permission of the other player. But the rule is lose. For example, pulling the trigger to kill another character without the consent of another character is not allowed. Punches and kicks dealt to other characters are allowed.

You know, I always knew Forumotion had a dice-roll system, but I never know how it works. And the mods there never answer me when I asked that. >.>

I tried rolling a some dice here but there are no dice to he rolled. There are 4, 6, and 20 sided die to roll. Once you roll a die the root admin account makes a forced post explaining the results of the dice roll, though Dice Based Roleplay is hard and difficult. Maybe we should stay away from it until Deceiver figures it out completely.

And I want to watch more Young Justice before I make an RP.

What do you mean by set up an RP? Also, I'm kinda used to the RP which has the thing where you need the other player's permission to land a blow. So this will be kinda new to me. Oh and I don't use the dice roll in RPing. I only use posts. Very Happy

You have permission to strike and attack other players, but you don't have permission to hit so hard that it will permanently damage their character, not without permission of course.
