Hemlock Valley is a modern fantasy RP forum set in the USA with no word count. We have supernatural elements, scientific discoveries, action scenes and everyday stories of heroes.
1. There is no word count.
2. There are no activity checks that require members to link to threads to keep their characters active.
3. The face-claim feature is not used here, though a real-life person is used to represent your character.
4. Signatures must not stretch the board.
5. Respect the community.
The rules are explained in more detail below.
There are some differences in the features between our forum with other typical RP forums out there.
* Inactivity check.
When there is an activity check thread, all you need to do is post in it, declaring whichever characters you want to keep. Those who do not participate will be tagged as inactive. This is only for the convenience of other players who might otherwise plot with an inactive character. Inactive characters still have all posting privileges just like an active character. Your characters will never be deleted due to missing an activity check, unless we are running out of storage space.
* No face claim.
There is no need to declare a play-by in a thread. The avatar or image in your character profile represents the face of your character. Real-life faces, especially non-private faces are encouraged. We are not anime-manga centric, so cartoon images are also not recommended.
* No character tracker.
After character acceptance, you will post your character profile exactly into the membergroup subforum. Any tracking or plotting is done in that same thread, and you can also discuss anything RP-related in the lounge.
* No cbox.
All OOC chat goes into the Conversation thread.
* No upgrades nor progression.
Everything you need to play with your character is available at the beginning of the game. There shall be no upgrades that are unlocked with increasing post count or restricted leadership positions. Everyone starts out as powerful and complete as they plan it to be, the only thing remaining is to play out your story.
