01: There's a mini plot going on involving [insert random craziness]. Do I have to participate? No, you don't have to. The mini plots are proposed by either myself or other people, and they're just around to make things fun. If you want your characer involved that's cool, and if you don't that's cool too. It will be very rare when you "have" to participate in anything, and I'll be sure to let you know when you do.
02: What is your policy on participation? I understand the pressures of real life problems, so if you can't participae for whatever reason that's fine. But also don't ask for a character and never use them. Update in some fashion once a month at least, unless you otherwise cannot. And if you can't, you should probably say so or I'll think you dropped out.
03: What does the house look like? I always imagined it to look like a gigantic mansion. The good thing about the house is that it evolves when the players add rooms, such as the infirmary or the gardens. The definite places are the baths located on every other floor, the kitchens located on every floor, the theater in the basement, and of course the rooms.
04: Can my character room with [insert name]? The room list is always changing, so yes, you just make a request for whoever you want as your roomie and the list will change accordingly.
05: Do I have to have a room? Again, you don't "have" to. If your character doesn't need a room (example being Washuu) then don't ask for one. It's as simple as that. If it's more IC for your charrie to sleep outside, then have them sleep outside.
06: Are original characters allowed? So far I'm only going to allow this if the characters are born inside the house. Like your character and another person's have a child while in the house. You don't have to write up an app for OCs but it's still a good idea to give some kind of hint they're coming. Like someone announcing "I'm pregnant".
07: What about OOCness? Well, in this setting it's bound to happen anyway, but I don't want people to go to extremes. For some mini plots the characters HAVE to be a bit OOC for the plot to work, however for the most part I find it much more amusing for characters to stay as IC as possible while they live in the house.
08: Are there restrictions to where we go outside the house? I don't want to establish the place in any particular country, so you can't have them go to Chicago or Sydney or whatever. Universal places like hospitals or shopping areas are okay.
09: What is the policy on character death? It is all up to the mun, really. Characters can "die" but they can come back in about three to four days or whenever the mun wants them back. Many times the character loses part of their memory, but again this is all up to the mun.
10: How many characters am I allowed to play? As many as you can handle. I know I said the limit is four, but if you've been playing for a while and all characters are active, you're free to apply for more. Just please be sure to use all characters you apply for.
