Taste and Decency Rules

Post  God on Wed Mar 16, 2016 3:27 pm

Yeah, this is the point where I do the big bad 'I say no!' But it has to be done.

Firstly, I feel everyone are mature RP'ers here. The world is not a nice place, and the WoD it's even worse – we know that. But if to simply avoid this turning into a smut and / or gore fest, I am putting in the following rules.

Guiding Principle: 'My sister Jenny'.
Jenny is 14, with a caring family, decent friends and lives in a rather safe suburb. She's aware of things such as sex, violence and the nasty things of the world, but she isn't very familiar with them. For her, a dirty scene in a film wouldn't go past second base. Gunshot wounds cause massive bleeding on clothing, nothing more.

Keep Jenny in mind when you are describing things graphically. If you think she'd be offended by it, find another way to write it or get rid.

Imply, don't describe.
If you need to show that things went further than what Jenny's stomach and/or morals can handle, please use euphemisms and vague generalities.

If stuck, Fade to Black.
If you can't think of a way to do the above, simply end the thread with [FtB].

Let's talk about Sex.
Let me make this clear – vampires are generally not interested, unless they are using it as a ruse to feed. Neonates may be a little interested, a residual drive left over from their breathing days.

Yes, minors have sex and commit violence [on each other, and with adults]. But not only do we need to watch for general decency, but the forum host's own rules. So I am putting in these rules, making sure you also follow the guidelines above. Please note that 'Child' is defined by the board as under 18.

- PC's can hunt, hurt or even kill minors. But sexual relationships are banned.
- All violence committed on obvious minors will be quickly, lightly implied.
- This chronicle is set before ideas about 'age of consent' became current, let alone law. So yes, you may encounter obviously underage girls with babies, pregnant or working as prostitutes. I will not whitewash history. Characters may be propositioned by the last while hunting.
- I will allow player characters to be obviously underage. If you decide this, we will have a frank and through discussion on what they can and can't do.

If you have any doubts about anything, ask!
