During the Full Moon Observance supernatural races are invited to play the consequences of the full moon. You are not required to do so for the entire 48 hours. If you are not sure how are what your race does during the full moon reach out to a Lore Keeper. You can find them under each race poster in the landing zone in-world!

Roleplay tIPS AND REMINDERS


CONSENT, CONSENT, CONSENT


This phrase is all over our lore.  Lack of “game mechanics”, HUDS, and the like, and with all the different races, abilities, measures of strength and speed, etc, consent plays a big part in roleplay on our sim.  But did you know that consent can be asked/given in different ways?  Read on!


Active Consent:


Active Consent involves players directly communicating OOC to seek permission or agreement for specific scenarios. For instance, discussing the parameters of Glamour or other situations through OOC conversations to ensure everyone is on the same page.


Passive Consent


What is that, you ask?


Passive Consent is when a player responds to RP in a manner that engages their character in the RP.  For example, Player A posts an ATTEMPT at casting a spell on Player B.  Player B responds by being affected by the spell.  


Player B had the option to post that the spell did not work.  Player B had the option to post the degree to which the Spell affected them, but by engaging in the RP and posting being affected, Player B has Passively Consented to the effects of the spell.  It is no different than Player A firing a weapon, and Player B accepting the hit.  


Additionally, Passive Consent extends to scenes taking place in public locations. If a scene unfolds in a public setting like a park or bar, the players involved are passively consenting to the possibility of others joining or intervening in the scene.


This includes characters "saving" others from attacks. It is not “White Knighting”, and it aligns with the idea that characters would naturally respond to situations in a public space, much like real-life interventions when witnessing someone in distress.


Expecting characters to ignore such situations might be considered godmodding if it goes against the nature of their role in the story.   Like expecting a cop to ignore a mugging just because he didn’t get permission to intervene.


Be kind and don't break shit!
