Rules and Regulations

Post  Kiera on Sun Mar 21, 2010 8:32 am

This group is primarily designed to house content intended for teenage members and thus content needs to remain appropriate. Please limit Profanity in posts, Avatars, pictures, or links; Excessive gore in posts, Avatars, pictures, or links is not allowed; No Lewd posts, Avatars, pictures, or links will be tolerated. Remember, we are setting a self-imposed PG-13 guideline on this group. If you are not willing to abide by the PG-13 guideline please move yourself to the Adult group. Based on the nature of the group and what will be required of the Admins and Moderators to keep material appropriate for the age group we can only guarantee one warning before being removed from the group for content violations. Further warnings will remain at the discretion of the Admin or moderator handling the violation.

Game Rules will follow the Star Wars Saga published manuals. House rules are allowed with prior notice. If there is a disagreement about rules that cannot be sorted out between players or between a GM and the players rules will default to the most recently published rule applicable to the situation in the Star Wars Saga manuals except where players were notified of house rules before the start of a campaign. Character simulations without a set GM are welcome and even encouraged, however in the event that there are disagreements between characters (I.E. a fight between two characters) in one of these sims and the players cannot come to a mutual agreement on the result of such disagreements the simulation shall be brought to the attention of a moderator or admin who will then make the final decision on the result of the disagreement.

Dice will be rolled by using the forum based dice.There are two options to roll dice on the forum.  Please note that dice cannot be rolled in the first post on a thread.

  • The first option to roll dice on the forum is to use the tool bars within a post.  At the top of your post window near the text editing option should be a white button with an elipses ( ... ) clicking that button should expand your tool bars. In the 2nd of the new tool bars shown you should see a grey die at the end of the tool bar.  Clicking this die will pull down a drop down with different die types to select from.  If the instructions for rolling say xd6 you would select d6.  This action should place two sets of brackets into the main body of your post.  Between these two brackets you would input the value of x.  If the instructions state that you should roll y xd6 then you would use the instructions above y times.  So if y were 2 you would have (roll="D6")x(/roll) (roll="D6")x(/roll) with brackets rather than parentheses.  Then you simply make any comments you would like about the rolls you are making and their purpose, and hit send.
  • The second option to roll dice on the forum is to use the tool at the bottom of the post window.  When making a reply on a pre-existing thread slightly below the Preview and Send buttons there should be a bar that says "Roll" on this bar should be "Roll #1: (dropdown box) Dice Rolls (text box) and a small plus button.  To roll xd6 you would select d6 on the dropdown and then put the value of x into the text box next to Dice Rolls.  If the instructions state that you should roll y xd6 then you would click the little plus sign after setting up your first roll and repeat it exactly to the value of y.  So if y were 2 you would have Roll #1: d6 Dice Rolls: x (push plus and a new line will appear) Roll #2: d6 Dice Rolls x.  Once your dice rolls are selected please ensure you comment in the text box with a relevant comment to the roll, and click send.

Every attempt will be made to have all applicable die types available.  If you need a die type that is not available please contact an Admin to have the die added.  This ensures that all dice rolls are fair.    

If a player feels that a particular GM is "picking on them" they are welcome to contact an Admin or Moderator who will then investigate the situation.

As of this time Game Mastering (GMing) is limited to Admin and moderators. As the group grows and member skills are better understood others will be welcomed into the GM role to further enhance our playing opportunities. If you would like to become a GM please contact an Admin or Moderator with your credentials, Role Playing history, and information on whether you possess the Saga Edition game manuals and which ones.

All Out of Character interaction should be posted in the OOC forum. If you have player interaction regarding a specific campaign please create a thread in the OOC forum with the campaign title so that the GM and other players can find it and read the information in context. GMs are allowed to override the no OOC text in their own campaign threads, however if the GM has not specifically stated that OOC text is allowed in the thread please move it to the OOC forum.

Attacks and ridicule of players shall not be allowed. If there are indications that a user is attacking or ridiculing another user "verbally" or in any other way in this forum the offending user will have all their permissions suspended. Once again, based on the nature of this group and the requirements in keeping it appropriate only one warning can be guaranteed. Please keep this in mind before making posts.  "Friendly" bantering between players will be allowed if both players are amicable to the banter.  If one of the two players in question brings the post to the attention of a moderator or admin then it will be considered a violation and the writer of the offending post will be given a warning.  Any further attacking posts against the player who reported will be considered a 2nd violation and the user writing such posts can be suspended at any time.  If you feel that a post may be considered friendly banter by the writer but it offends you please inform them directly of such before contacting Admins or Moderators.  We are not your parents, any time you can work things out among yourselves it is preferred.  

Keep in mind that while Role Playing disagreements may be fun for many of our older members, and we may have the knowledge and ability to not take them personally many of our members are just transitioning from our family friendly group where such disagreements in character are very limited. Our younger members may still have difficulty maintaining a detachment between themselves and their characters, please keep this in mind when playing out any IC disagreements.  Players, please be aware that by the nature of role playing a character may dislike your character and it may have nothing to do with you or the other player in question.  Please do not take such interactions personally.  

Please remember, this is a game and should remain fun for all involved. Thank you!
