OOC Rules:

1. Use common sense. It is your friend.
2. Keep OOC talk to a minimum in the IC threads. We have an OOC section for you. Promise!
3. What the ST's final say, goes. Though we'll try not to interrupt your scene.
4. If a Mod or Storyteller tells you to hold a scene, please hold the scene.
5. The rules set herein always stand and will be enforced by all Staff members. Staff members found not in compliance with these rules will be dealt with by the ST staff, privately.
6. If a change of ST staff is in effect, the Staff is required to review these rules as per OWbN ByLaws, as they are an extension of the House Rules. Any changes should be noted below by responding to this post.
7. All Users must read and understand these rules. No Exceptions. Lack of knowledge of these rules is not a valid defense.
8. Players must use new user names, for new characters. This is in case we have further plots for old characters.
9. STs from other games are invited to make handles to review PC interactions from their games. Likewise, visitors are encouraged to make handles to join in on the roleplay.
10. The Forums are the primary source of information. When information is imperative for game play, it will be cross posted to the e-mail list.
11. Please Note: When logged in to the forums, you are signed into Motor City Monsters. This means that the House Rules & Charter applies too.

RP Rules:

1. Check the time stamp on the First Post. Then, check the whole body of the thread for the 'time' count. This will give you an idea of 'when' it is happening.
NOTE: Unless given prior permission by the ST Staff, do not pre/post date scenes by more than 1-2 days. This leads to time problems (i.e. "If I'd known he did that days ago, I would've done this differently.")and can be a headache for all involved.
2. Character Death, Summons, etc. will be worked out between STs and then a decision on whether to time stop the scene for LARP play or continuation via Message Board will be made and posted.
3. Sexual interaction between PCs on the public posting areas is prohibited. Private e-mails, Private Messages, and other things like that are acceptable. The STs and Public do not want to see your 'naughty, naughty play.'
4. Please make sure your R&U Character is completely registered before posting.
5. Leaving players hanging is a bad idea. Real life issues do come up. We all understand.
6. Likewise, Patience is a Virtue. Some people post more than others. It happens.
7. If you normally do not roleplay on the forums, and are needed for a scene, then a time stop may occur.
8. Not everyone can get online. Expecting people to is silly. So if you need them, check the mailing list. If that doesn't work, wait until game.
9. Please do not retcon yourself into a scene without discussing it with a ST first. If you do add yourself to a scene, but neglect to discuss with the STs about your character's presence prior to your entry, then you should assume to be joining at the moments of and/or after the post prior to yours.

Remember, power usage and ability usage to determine/interact should be run through the storytellers first. This includes the usage of Etiquette to modify posts. Spelling errors aside, to completely change what you say in a thread after someone has already responded can damage the flow of conversation/RP and causes a whole chain of edits.

Resolution of Challenges: If a scene turns towards the need for challenges The staff needs to be made aware, and they will handle the situation on a case by case basis.
