Rules And Regulations

Don't be a dick

Now that got that out of the way, here some rules about the rp. Many rules are negotiable. Talk to an OP (an h-op does not have the authority to over-rule the rules.)

  • Players own their characters' stories

This rule means that no one can permanently affect another character's story without their permission. A player can retcon their own story at any time if it isn't too drastic or affects another character's story.

Rules about Character Creation

  • Characters can be from any time period
  • Characters must be human, humanoid, or can be perceived as human. Basically they need to be able to show up in our world without causing a riot.
  • Characters cannot originally appear in a copywritten source.
  • It should be noted that characters can be inspired by a source, but should rarely be based on and NEVER taken from one. IE you can have a scientist that unlocked the secrets of necromancy, but you can’t have Dr. Frankenstein himself.
  • Lockwood runs with Allspeak. So let’s all pretend that everybody speaks English and leave it at that. Worlds may sometimes not follow this.

Rules about RP

  • Lockwood uses a Closed Scene system. You must have permission to join in on a scene/run/event before you do. Unless beforehand the scene is stated to be open for everyone.
  • Private scenes between only two players should be taken to PMs. Especially romantic scenes.
  • ERP is always a private scene. Chat channels are not the place. If you need to ask what ERP is, you're probably not doing it.
  • Harassment in or out of character is never okay.
  • What happens IC stays IC, and what happens OOC stays in OOC. Players are not their characters, characters are not their players. We’re all friends here, whether we like it or not.
  • Help, I think I’m breaking the rules! Talk to the GM team, we’re more than happy to help you fix a problem before it becomes a bigger problem.
  • Help, somebody else is breaking the rules! Notify a member of the GM team immediately. Bring logs. .

Rules about Events and Runs:

  • ** Everyone has the Potential to GM**

OPs (Operators) are in charge of keeping order in the chat and have the final say on all disputes. Players are more than welcome to write their own runs and events though. Guest runs MUST be approved and it’s recommended that you scheduled in advance. There are a few rules, and we expect you to follow them. The rest are just suggestions. More can be found on the GM Guide page, but here are the non-negotiable rules.

  • Don’t be a dick, but with extra emphasis. Put any personal hang ups with anybody behind you.
    • No GM can ever remove a character from play without prior approval from both the player and the GM team.
  • Standing approval may be granted to players who've proved they understand the tone and rules. Standing approval may be revoked at any point. Remember who granted you standing approval in case an OP wishes to know.
  • The world your PC came from is either gone or inaccessible. No mass dimensional escape pod whisked your BFFs away to safety. And even if it did, you can’t get there anymore.
