Here's the rules as I see them: 1) All normal rules of the JC apply: no flaming, no trolling, no spamming, no spoilers, no innapropriate sexual content etc. Any occurances of such behaviour (in or out of character) will be dealt with by a mod. 2) All thread authors are considered to be the initial Games Masters of their scenario's. They set the scene, guide players during it's course and make decisions as to the outcome of the game. 3) Mods are only to become involved in a game when there is a serious and honest dispute between a player and the Game Master, in which case either party can approach the forum mod for mediation. 4) The majority of Role Playing should take place when the majority of participants in a game are online, so Game Masters should determine these times with the players before the game starts. 5) All Role Playing should be in keeping with the Star Wars Universe (EU inc.) as much as possible and should be as realistic as the scenario allows. This includes rewards for jobs, equipment, costs, modes of travel, lifestyles, environments, interaction between users during a game, etc. 6) Players are allowed to register socks to role-play with but in keeping with the JC's [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=2881848&replies=96]Sock Policy[/link], only 3 socks are allowed per user. All information about a character which is relevant to gameplay should be openly included in it's profile for all users to see. If a sock/character is killed during the course of a game it must be reported to the mod/admin for banning ASAP (unless the owner intends to resurrect the character in some clever way) 7) Players are not limited by canon, only their imagination. In the interests of fairness, pre-existing characters may be used but players are only allowed to use one per scenario (eg: A gamer who uses Darth Vader in one thread cannot use that character in any other game s/he plays) ===> Open to discussion? 8) Defence Forces which involve RP in their activities are welcome. 9) Groups and organisations are allowed no more than a single thread as a base of operations, for socialising and recruiting. EDIT: And I agree with GAP......this forum is gonna rock!
