ChronoMUCK Rules and Regulations|
With recent changes this may become a little confusing. We'll do our best to keep things as organised as we can. Should you have any questions feel free to log on and ask a member of the staff for more information. The top half deals with Twisted World and the Muck in general, the bottom with only the Chrono-specific areas. This will become easier to understand with time...
Generally, any type of character is going to be acceptable on Twisted. Afterall, it is conceivable that every single dimension in existence is somehow linked to the Street, or at least, anyone/thing could be spewed out of a dimensional hole into it. What's that mean? It means, if you have a character you want to play, play it. Just remember, that if it's some over-powered psychopath, you'll either A) Not get any RP because no one wants to play with someone that will just kill them, or B) We'll put your character on hold and make you fill out an application because you've abused the free pcreate priveledge. Just use common sense and you should be fine, it's okay to have uber powered psycho's out there, what's a place without evil people to deal with? But, we won't except power-gaming or twinking.
Anyone who can bend time forward or backward is not allowed. If your character had this power, then it is taken away by some force when they come to Twisted. This is not to say you cannot travel -through- time, but you are not able to, say, in a fight, stop time, go back a few minutes, and redo what you had done. This is to try and help RP, not hinder it.
In summary, go ahead, be what you want, make what you want, but know that if we get complaints from other players about your character, you will be put on hold and your character reviewed. Other than that, have fun and go crazy!
You want it? Build it. Twisted Street is a connecting point of dimensions, buildings, and people. There's no reason that an entire world wouldn't be connected to it somewhere, either through a doorway or the massive opening of a black cave. Or, perhaps there's just one building or city from the world you came from, or maybe you just want a place that has nothing to do with your character. Well, if you want it, build it. Just be sure to follow these guidelines:
1) Everything built must have an exit and a description BEFORE it is linked to Twisted St.
2) All exits should have @succ, @osucc, and @odrop descriptions, even if they are very simple.
3) You can have as many rooms as you want, but there MUST be one link that comes off of Twisted Street. Nothing can exist by itself in Twisted World. (At least, nothing anyone knows about)
4) The link off of Twisted Street can be whatever you want, a door, a window, a portal, touching a rock, whatever. But, it -needs- to be there!
BECOMING A MEMBER OF TASK
If you are interested in being a member of Task, feel free to page #mail Lalorien or (put your Task character here if you want to be a part of it) about it. The Council is always looking for new people to help...protect...the other dimensions from Mal-Travelers afterall! If you want to be someone who is already an established member of Task, that's fine, but keep in mind it might be fun to be interviewed for the job as well! RP generation = GOOD!
BECOMING A MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL
There is currently only one character who is active on The Council named Lalorien, a High Elf. There are eight more positions open. If you're interested in getting a position on The Council, page #mail Lalorien about it. It's best to have an established reputation on the muck already however, as being on The Council would require a lot of trust to be put in your lap. Also, don't be insulted if you are flat out refused without a good reason, Lalorien is a bit of a snob. She's a High Elf afterall.
While Twisted is a chaotic landscape where everything intersects, the Chrono map is not. YOU ARE NOT FREE TO BUILD THERE WITHOUT CONSENT FROM A MEMBER OF THE STAFF. Anyone caught doing so anyways may suddenly find their buildings removed without notice, or in a worse case scenerio they may find they no longer can log onto the Muck. If you insist on building something for the maps put it somewhere on Twisted and then get it approved for Chrono.
PASSAGE BETWEEN CHRONO AND TWISTED
Generaly this is handled ICly, but before you assume things keep inmind that Chrono is deemed by the Council as an off-limits area. This means that if someone from Twisted should decide to visit they run the risk of having TASK come after them and imprisioning them. If you'd like to arrange safe passage contact a member of the staff and we'll instruct you on the proper way to go about it ICly. Also, just because you can teleport does not mean your character can. OOC visits are fine, but if you want to exist on both Twisted and Chrono at the same time, create an alt.
PLOTLINE MODIFICATIONS FOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
Absolutly no changes to the past plotline are permitted without approval. This falls under the category of twinking. Alternate world characters ARE permited while duplicate characters require approval, just don't be surprised when everyone calls you a lier because your world had a diffrent outcome of events.
NON-THEMED CHARACTER CREATION
If it is brought to our attention that someone or something is on Chrono and doesn't belong there (say for example Magus riding a battlemech or Pikachu suddenly showing up) this would fall under the same category as unapproved travel to Chrono. You will need to remove your character/creations immediatly or risk being subjected to a visit from TASK.
