welcome to black sun, a post-apocalyptic fantasy rp set in paris, 20XX. black sun was heavily inspired by and draws elements from jonathan stroud's bartimaeus sequence, as well as owari no seraph. obviously, we owe neither. prior knowledge, while helpful, is not required to roleplay on black sun! everything you'll need to know is in the information threads. while black sun can be thought of as taking place in an au bartimaeus verse, we are freeform rather than strict.

[attr="class","infop"]These rules may be subject to change and/or additions; we will make an announcement detailing so but ignorance is not an excuse. Staff reserve the right to handle situations on a case-by-case basis. We respect you, so please respect us.

In a nutshell, respect everyone! Don't plagiarize or steal. Keep drama off-site and out of the cbox; if you have an issue, have a private and mature discussion about it with the other person and/or contact an admin. You are not obligated to talk to/plot with everyone, but be inclusive in the cbox. Don't be pushy.[break][break]
No activity checks, just occasional roll calls to keep things tidy. We understand stuff happens, loss of interest, etc. Be polite and drop us a note if you're leaving temporarily or permanently, and we'll always be happy to welcome you back—no judgment. [break][break]
Direct comments and concerns to staff, but actively read the site information before asking questions. We're here to help, not hold your hand.
Animanga/animanga-style fcs only. Use a 100x100 icon for the miniprof; fill it out completely. No signatures. One character per account; please register as your character's first name for easy tagging (@name) and change the display name to first last. Make as many characters as you can handle, but try to be active on each one and log in to each everyday.[break][break]
No mary sues, god-modding, etc. Basically don't piss off your partner. Note that there's no strict magic/combat system here to complicate interactions, only general guidelines as to what each member group is capable of power-wise. Black Sun is about plot-driven power dynamics and struggle, not one overpowered character/group. Do not exploit this.[break][break]
There's no word count requirement or any other expectation for rp posts besides literacy. Write however tense/length/style is most comfortable and fun for you, though be mindful of your thread partner.[break][break]
Follow the Proboards TOS (PG-13 they say). Don't get the site shut down for explicit material. Use your discretion—if a thread's heading in that direction you can a) fade to black, b) get real vague, or c) take it off-site.
