Most standard role-playing rules apply here: god-moding and power-playing are prohibited. For those not familiar with the terminology, check out this article
for an explanation.
In-character posts should be in third-person and past-tense, and members are expected to practice correct spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation to the best of their abilities. We don’t enforce a word-count minimum for posts; the main thing to remember is quality over quantity.
Although we support face claims, we expect players to develop their own, original character concepts. This means no “expies” – i.e. characters from other media exported into the game setting with little to no change to their personality and background.
Paradise utilizes liquid time. This means that players can have as many in-character threads as they like, in as many areas as they like, as long as everything makes sense chronologically. With that in mind, you can assume the months/seasons pass in accordance with real life (Eden is located in the Northern Hemisphere).
Swearing and violence are permitted in-character, but violence should not extend beyond the “mild” category. Blood is fine; an excessive amount of gore is not. Also, any situations that become sexual in nature should “fade to black” at the appropriate time.
Players are allowed as many characters as they wish with no waiting period in-between. However, we do suggest that you only take on as many as you can handle. We would much rather you dedicate yourself to a small number of active characters engaged in the the roleplay than to see you create a hoard of characters who see little play individually.
To keep a character from being archived, players only need to be active once every 30 days. Activity is considered any contribution to the site: an IC post, plotting, chatting in the OOC area, et cetera. If an account remains inactive for 30 days or longer, the character’s trainer profile will be archived. To be have an inactive profile restored, simply message the admin
All members are expected to abide by the rules of the site. Players are welcome to help others with any accidental mistakes by correcting them in a polite and helpful manner. However, if you witness inflammatory behavior of any kind, please notify the admin
