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, or a post/thread in either reincarnatecomm, thereincarnates, or reincarnateau. Also, if it's a comms thread or starter log posted by someone else, the activity does not actually count for your character until they interact on the post. Activity periods generally go for six weeks (you can always find them marked on the calendar). If you fail to meet the above listed requirements during an AC period then your character(s) will be marked inactive and you will have one additional AC period to get your character(s) active again before he or she is removed from the game. The Activity Check is posted every six weeks on a Sunday, by 12PM (PST).
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 alts. 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, and e-mail messages go. The thereincarnates comm is for character threads and first person narratives only, while reincarnateau is mainly for IC back story threads and AU game plots.
