RP

In general, rules will be more relaxed for RPs, if it works for the story you are trying to tell, we are happy to make allowances to facilitate this. If this is abused, we will start to enforce things more strictly. Most notably:

-Criminal activity is allowed to be discussed, and even performed, by characters within an RP.

-Excessive illegal Drugs are still not allowed, however Alcohol and tobacco can be used as appropriate for the RP's setting. Within reason.

However:

-Sexual content is still strictly forbidden

-THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE. All "Erotic RPs" or "Romantic two person" RPs will be removed.
