These are the rules. Please follow them!
Activity & Hiatuses
Keeping your characters active is important, so we ask that you post for them at least once during each activity period. To be counted for activity it can be in a journal entry in your character's personal journal, a text/phone/e-mail/letter/video/news post in reincarnatecomm or a log in thereincarnates. Also, if it's a comms thread or log posted by someone else, the activity does not count for your character until they interact on the post. Our backstory and AU comms have been deactivated, but you can still do backstory threads in the main logs community using the !backstory tag, and AU threads using the !au tag when we do AU plots. A thread qualifies as 'backstory' if the timeline takes place longer than a month ago from present day.
PBs & Icons
Because of the nature of this game, characters are not allowed to have the same PB as their reincarnates. For example, Luke Skywalker cannot be PB'd by Mark Hamill, but he can be PB'd by Gabriel Macht. You can choose another PB that is within the same fandom. However, you cannot use icons of them from the same source your reincarnate comes from. (Ex. Chris Evans is Captain America. You could use him to play Thor, but you can't use icons of Chris Evans from The Avengers or the Captain America solo films.)
All characters from all fandoms and all mediums are welcome here. However, you are expected to know as much about your character as possible prior to bringing them into the game. Keep up with their fandom and pay attention to any new developments that directly concern them. You should also be logical about what abilities and talents your character will immediately receive from their reincarnate. Don't assume that they're getting everything all at once. Ex.) A new reincarnate of Superman wouldn't automatically be able to fly. Even Superman had to learn that! They might already have super strength, but all things have to be conditioned over time. More room for character development is always a plus.
Apping, Dropping & Holds
There's no character cap here. As long as you keep your characters active and are honest with yourself about what you can handle, we're not going to put a numerical limit on someone's character list. Likewise, sometimes ideas that sound great in an application don't work out in actual game play, so we're not going to penalize people for the occasional drop. That said, if you can't stay active and you're constantly cycling through characters, don't be surprised if the mods approach you about scaling back.
Journal Etiquette & IC vs. OOC
The reincarnateooc comm is only to be used for character intro's, hiatus and returning from hiatus notices, game memes, and mod posts. We really try to keep the OOC comm uncluttered in order to keep posts from getting buried, so please save the plot requests for the Wanted Page. The reincarnatecomm journal is for communications between characters, so that's where the phone calls, texts, e-mails, and other comms related posts go. The thereincarnates community is for multiple person logs and first person narratives onlys.
