RP Activities Rule

- All public IMVU rooms labeled with ICCRRP at the beginning of the name will automatically except all who enter to be fully In Character (IC) mode meaning that any activities in that room will adhere to all ICCRRP Rules & Standards. Including but not limited to battle rules.

- No Out Of Character (OOC) posts or threads will be allowed inside any ICCRRP group. Except the groups that explicitly declare that OOC content is allowed, or declare that the group is for OOC content only. Any and all OOC posts or threads will be promptly deleted, or expected that the group owner remove OOC posts. This is in an effort to fully create a separate RP environment and allow for full disconnection form RL drama.

- OOC issues are not to be brought into ICCRRP, as well as no IC activity are to be brought outside ICCRRP. "What happens in Role Play stays in Role Play. What happens in Real Life stays in Real Life."

- If anyone violates these rule they will first receive a warning after their post or thread is removed. Second offense in a month will result in removal from ICCRRP for a minimum of 1 week as determined by ICCRRP Inquisition Board. Third offense in a month will result in removal from ICCRRP for a minimum of 1-3 months as determined by ICCRRP Inquisition Board.

- Lastly we recommend to all RP group owners that you keep activities in your group RP only to help reduce problems. If you all would like to have OOC threads & posts please create a separate group. Blurring that and allowing both IC & OOC are assured to bring your group grief.

Avatar & ICCRRP Character Policy

.IMVU Character Rights & Responsibility - Your IMVU avatar is your personal digital property. You associate it with your ICCRRP character by personal choice. You will never be forced to change your avatar’s name. You will never be forced to delete your avatar. You have spent a lot of time, effort, and money to make your avatar. It’s yours and will always be yours. With that stated you are also fully responsible for the actions of your avatar.

Warning:You are responsible for any and all actions, events, ect.. that your avatar performs or is involved in (eg., if your big brother knows your password and rapes someone, your avatar is responsible). To avoid being hacked, type a minimum of 8 character password with upper and lower case, alphanumeric, and special characters (ie. 3aT@J03s). Keep your password safe, and do not share it with others.

ICCRRP Character Rights & Responsibility - Your ICCRRP character is your creative and intellectual as well as digital property. It is associated with your IMVU avatar by choice. If you character dies that death occurs to your ICCRRP character only. You may create a new character and associate it with your IMVU avatar. You may have your character commit suicide. That is your choice.

Warning: You are responsible for any and all role play actions, events, ect.. that your character performs or is evolved in. Stating that your character is possessed or taken control of by another character or phantom being is no excuse for the actions of your character. You still have control of your avatar/character and are making that choice willingly. So with that stated you will be fully responsible for your actions.

Rules for Play

1- Character must have a background story and it must be posted. Please take some time and create a story that you want others to read and enjoy. Part of the enjoyment of RP is being brought into a new world. Your story helps to mold and create that world. From your story you give your character life.

2- Resurrection is allowed. It requires a story to be posted explaining the way in which your character is brought back to life. For the best possible RP please do your homework and create a story that is not only supportable in RP play but also is a joy to read.

3- Leave the drama at the door. You are here playing in this RP world cause you want to. You are here to have fun and enjoy this world we create together. If you are not happy with a coven, kingdom, empire, ect.. Then leave it. There is no requirement that you stay in that group. Bring forth your imagination and create this fantastical fantasy world. It’s not about what rank you have. What type of character you are. The fun is about playing that character, and interacting with the vibrant characters others create. So read up rule #4 and get playing. An entire RP world awaits your arrival.

4- Play/Battle Rules: T1 rules site very clear and concise

T1.

This is when you create at least 4 or more paragraphs about a scene and everything that is happening around your character. This is for very experience RPers and is very diffucult to do. In order to do this, you must add detail about everything that is going on around you. How is your character moving and your character's reaction to who your RPing with? But remember, just because you can do T1 RPing, doesn't make you a professional RPer.

5- Play/Battle Rules Extended: ICCRRP does not adhere strictly to T1 rules, but uses them as a first step training to text RP. Instead of requiring lengthy and excessive posts to include more detail then possibly useful. ICCRRP uses a more hybrid form where what is seen on screen in 3D is used as a primary and text adds to it. Best practice is to include enough detail for proper interpretation or what is needed, and keep it concise. Its quality not quantity that matters. All the detail in the world is useless if its just excess filler.
