That may be what the sign welcoming newcomers to the city proclaims, but it only reveals one side of the coin. On the outside, to see the shiny buildings and carefully cultivated greenery one would believe that they have entered a virtual paradise - the tinge of the sea lightly wafting through the gentle breeze, the smiling faces and concerned politicians…it’s like something you would see on a television show in the 1950’s.
Friendly people walk the streets welcoming families to the primarily college-run city, but downtown Mishima is completely different. Between the flashing lights and the blinding neon lies a seedy current filtering through the night. While the police and politicians work hard to clean up the city the local crime syndicates always seem to be one step ahead of them.
Mishima - beautiful in the daytime, but deadly in the night.
This is a low-to-no OOC drama game; at least we’d like it to be. Please let Jill know if there are any issues with another player or the way we run things, since we would like to keep things running smoothly.
While this is an AU environment and we know that allows for some personal interpretation, please try to keep characterization relatively true to canon. What that means is while I know we’d all love to see Sasuke wearing a wreath of flowers and proclaiming his love for everyone while clutching his teddy bear that’s just not who Sasuke is...Orihime, maybe, but not Sasuke.
We here in the Mod Squad are highly tolerant people, meaning we have no issue with het, yaoi, yuri, or what-have-you. However, we do want to point out that the minimum age for this RP is 15 and that some players are not nearly as enamored of smut as others, therefore this community is considered Rated R. What this means is that while we all know sex is a natural part of life we don't want logs containing it unless they are in an locked post marked for Adult Activity. This way people will know to avoid it if they don't want to read it.
Posting minimums - we’d love it if players could post in their character journals at least once a month, and participate or start threads at least once every two weeks. More would be favorite but we understand that people do have lives outside of gaming. If you do not post anywhere in the course of two months, you will be booted. However, if you foresee the need for a hiatus, please make sure at least one mod is aware of it. Suddenly disappearing not only puts all of your threads at a standstill, but we also tend to worry that something not-good has happened. We're extremely tolerant of real life and its importance in the grand scheme of things.
If you’re going to post a longer post (300 words +) then please use an lj-cut. Same goes for quizzes, meme’s, and anything that might affect the page size. Nobody likes a messy F-list.
The character limit is five characters per player. However, if you feel you can handle more, discuss this with the mods and we will take that request into consideration.
Interaction is the lifeblood of any game. We encourage our players to comment on other players’ posts, make threads for various events, and even log over AIM/Email/or some other messenger service. We do have a format for posting threads and logs that we ask you to please follow.
The need for a hiatus happens now and then. If you find you need to take a break from the game for more than a day or two, please leave a post in your journal marked "HIATUS" in bold letters so that if an activity check comes up, the mods will see it.
Sockpuppet Journals - The Mods will check the journal you apply with. If that journal is a sockpuppet or dummy account created within 6 months of applying/has no entries ever posted, you will automatically be denied.
Regarding Journal Etiquette - Private posts
