ALWAYS PLAY THE CHARACTER YOU APPLIED TO PLAY.
It is confusing to other players if you change half way through and people may be relying on that character in their own rp. If you feel you would like to change your character, think it thru, discuss it with those who’s stories are woven with yours and contact a sim admin or moderator when you are ready with your decision.
BE REALISTIC, BE TRUE TO YOUR CHARACTER!
Play your character how the character would have lived. Do not do things such as make a senator a slave, or other crazy things. We live as the Ancient Romans would have.
RESPECT THE RULING OF THE MODERATORS.
While we are here to assist and to provide a second opinion, once a decision has been reached, that is the final decision in regards to rp. So call on mod’s as a last resort, for whatever they decide, you have to live by. Please remember they have a difficult and often tedious job and show them the respect they deserve for taking this on.
USE GROUP CHAT…
…to get to know each other OOC, but be respectful. if you do not like what is going on in there, close it, do not flame people.
USE GROUP CHAT …
…to call upon admins, moderators or people with specific roles you need in your RP. but remember, if calling on someone to rp with you (a medicus for example), to incorporate things logically in your RP, missives, sending npc slaves, etc.
USING ALTS …
…is ok, if you’re just bringing them in to fulfill a need in your rp (i.e. someone you will be quickly killing off, not building long term storyline, or a slave when none are around, etc), however, if you wish to have another character in sim, whether or not you do it on this same avie or another one, that character must submit an application and in that application you must divulge all your avatars on sim. They must all be over 18 and age verified.
READ ALL NOTICES …
…before dismissing them, in case there is something important.
CHARACTERS SHOULD BE TREATED AS THEY WOULD HAVE IN ROMAN TIMES.
A merchant would not walk up to the emperor and slap him on the back, nor would a citizen be rude or disrespectful to a Praetorian Guard or members of Senate.
STAY IC WHILE ON SIM AT ALL TIMES.
Set up group chat on your own for ooc meetings or banter.
ALWAYS TRY TO FIX A SITUATION YOURSELF …
…but if you cannot, DO NOT attack them, get rude, nasty or insulting!!! That will only make things worse! Instead, call an admin or a mod to help mediate the situation and bring it to a resolution that everyone can live with. Be aware that such things will require compromise from all parties and all such moderations will be held openly/publicly with all involved parties present in the same room/conversation. Never will any mod keep players separated in IM’s to dispute! If you believe one has, please bring evidence to the sim owners. Regardless, always remain calm and in control of yourself or the situation will get seriously out of hand.
…Rezz prims on the sim without permission. To open a box in the main area is one thing (if you then pick it up when done), to rezz props or builds is not acceptable without prior arrangement with the owner. The sim is set so that you can rezz, but if it is not set to land group, it will auto return after a period of time.
…Wear or Rezz modern day items.
…Tag/Profile read. If you have just met a person, you do not know them, or anything about them. If a person has limits they wish to express, they should IM you with them.
…God Mod/Meta Game: not tolerated/not permitted. Repeat offenders have to leave.
…Invite friends to the sim who are not dressed in character. If they are from another ancient sim and have period clothing, (ancient Egyptian, Spartan etc) that is permitted. But nothing that would be futuristic of this time frame.
…TP people into active RP. If friends or other residents need a ride, give them the LM to the sim so they land at the landing zone and don’t disrupt active RP.
…Use gestures, they are forbidden. No reason to use them, and warnings will be issued to offenders.
…Over script yourself. be careful of the scripts and huds you are wearing. They add to lag, so use common sense. You should easily wear under 100 scripts, as per the rules, 50 or 60 are preferred, 100 is max allowed. if your struggling to do so, contact a mod to help you.
…Never use radar or mini-map to track a person in rp
…Never expect people to call you Master or Mistress. This is not Gor. Title and familia are what goes in this world.
