A Welcome and Brief Introduction
First of all, let me welcome you into the forums! I promise, it's really not as scary as it might appear. In order to make this a little easier, I've compiled everything in this one "new player's guide". I hope to see you RPing soon!

Rules
Basic RP Rules

1.] You may only control your character. When roleplaying with someone, you may not control their character, even for a brief moment. Example, you may extend your hand for a handshake, but you may not assume that the other person took your hand. However, an exception to this rule are NPCs. These are characters that are for general use, although some might be specific to your character, such as relatives: mothers, fathers, siblings, etc. You may control these as well as your own character in your posts.

2.] There are limitations as to what your character may and may not do. Example, your character may not fly, simply because they are (probably) human and there is no fly spell. However, your character could float, because there is a float spell.

3.] Be realistic. If you're in a fight and terribly wounded, your fighting abilities and judgement would suffer. You might panic and rather than finishing off your oppent, desperately cast cure spells. Or, after a fight, if you lose, you might be weakened and need to go to the nearest physician to be healed up.

4.] Your character is mortal. That means you could die. Ways of this happening are: entering a battle after losing a previous one but before you are healed and fighting a monster grossly above your strength level (i.e., a SeeD candidate taking on a dragon). There may be others, but these will present themselves as you roleplay.

5.] No chat speak! That means that you type out the word 'you,' 'are,' and remember that plurals always end in 's', not 'z'.

6.] Please make sure that you close all of your BBC tags. BBC tags are the ones enclosed in [brackets] that you should use on the forum.



Forum Rules

1.] Accounts You should have one account for each character that you play. Furthermore, you should let us know which account is your main one, and provide us a list of all your characters, preferably in your signature.

2.] Characters You may have as many characters as you think that you can play, but please, be active under them. If you can play two characters reliably, but not three, then don't make three characters. Also, be certain to designate your 'main' account, or the one you post in the OOC boards as.

3.] Characters, part II Members can create any character their imagination can come up with. SeeD candidates and operatives are allowed, but so are non-Garden affiliated characters. However, canon characters, e.g. characters featured in any copyrighted material that is not your own, are not allowed to be registered (this includes characters from Final Fantasy and anime). All characters must be original.

4.] Advertising Advertising on the forum is strictly forbidden, except in the advertisements sub-board. And this board is only to be used to advertise websites. Please only post in the advertisement board after you've exceeded forty posts (including an approved profile). Advertising before this will cause you to have a warning.

5.] Flaming Material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing, is strictly prohibited. Use your common sense; if a post contains a personal attack on another user (OOCly), it will be deleted and a warning issued.

6.] Spamming Topics/posts that are just complete nonsense will be deleted, or have the entire thread locked, at the moderators discretion. If you continually violate this rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.

7.] Porn Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on this forum. Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight. If you violate this rule, your account may be automatically banned without prior warning.

8.] Cross Posting Posting the same question in more than one forum or thread is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked and subsequently deleted.

9.] Signatures Your signature should contain the following: the GFs you have, magic spells you have, and any alternate characters you have. If you cannot fit it all in the 500 character limit, please ask for help in the Q&A forum.

Character Creation

Honestly, I just recommend reading the Character Creation Guide in the character creation forum. It's extremely helpful, and is easy to find!

Roleplay and Combat

First of all, read How to Roleplay in Junction Memories and after you've done that, you can begin looking at combat. If the combat system scares you, play a non-SeeD character (or a SeeD candidate) and participate in some practice battles until you get the hang of it. Just remember, you want 0 points on you! If you hit the point max agreed upon at the start of the battle, you pass out!
