As We Fall is a MCU-centric RP board focusing on the events that come after those portrayed in Captain America: Civil War. A team divided, friends at odds with each other. Registration is a hot topic, but not yet enforced for the general public.
Respect is number one above all. Don't be afraid to approach staff if you feel there is a problem. We will not tolerate bashing of other sites, members, or unnecessary bashing of characters in the cbox. The cbox is intended for chatter and light plotting.
Registration Please register first with an OOC (out-of-character) account. Register all sub-accounts with proper first and last names - no nicknames, no all caps. Example - Jane Doe. Exceptions are made for characters with non-traditional names.
Applications Applications are handled on a first-come first-serve basis. All WIP applications have seven days to be completed or their claim held will be voided. Incomplete apps will be moved to the archive after two weeks time.
Age Requirements This site is rated mature due to the graphic contents. We ask any players be over the age of 16 to play, and only players over 18 may take part in mature themed threads and forum games. This Is a Premium board, so mature themes are allowed.
The CBOX No spamming, disrespect or advertising in the cbox. Warnings will be given unless in extreme circumstances. Absolutely no posting of NSFW content without at least giving warning. Repeat offenders will be IP-Banned from the cbox.
Post Expectations Please limit RPing to third person, past tense when posting in character. First person may be used in appropriate forum games or where deemed acceptable. While we accept all levels of writers, we expect quality over quantity. Proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation are expected.
God Moding God-moding, meta-gaming, and all in that like will not be tolerated. You will be warned if caught doing this. Further attempts to get this behavior past the staff will result in being asked to leave the forum.
Site Rating This is a rated 'mature' site. There may include mentions of sex, drugs, alcohol and violence. If your thread contains any of that we ask that you tag your thread with [Mature] or [Trigger Warning] as common courtesy to your fellow players.
Time Travel/Alternate Dimensions The overall plot arc of AWF is currently centered on the events surrounding and subsequent to Captain America: Civil War. As such, time travel and travel to alternate dimensions is not allowed outside of the 'AU' sub-forum. Canon characters with pre-existing reality-warping powers (Darkforce, Nightcrawler, Magik, etc.) will be considered, but no exceptions to the time travel rule will be made at this time.
Art Theft Art theft will not be tolerated. Give credit where credit is due. We ask that any instances of art theft be brought to the attention of the staff so we can deal with the issue.
Activity We ask that characters are posted with at least once a week. We understand if you get busy, and please feel free to post an away notice or slowed posting notice for us. All we really ask is that you don't mysteriously vanish on us for months on end. Canons will not be held for any huge length of time without contact to the staff to let them know what is going on. If you can not commit to at least one post every seven days, we recommend that you do not pick up a canon character at this time.
Sign up and absence Something that annoys a lot of people is when writers sign up to a site with a (popular) character, and almost immediately go on a leave of absence.
Sometimes people do this to 'lock in' a character to make sure nobody else can take him whilst they're on holiday. If the staff feel this has been done on purpose, we'll void the application. You won't be refused the character if you want to sign him up again after the absence.
Additionally we understand that sometimes shit just happens and you need a leave of absence, so we will only do this if the leave is overly lengthy, and we have a strong indication that the 'lock in' has been done on purpose.
Character Limits There is no character limit here on AWF. We do however ask that you have at least ten (10) in character posts with your latest character before applying for the next. This gives you a chance to get a feel for your character before you take on another.
There is no penalty for dropping characters.
Team Players We understand that Canons have great 'curb appeal' as it were, especially those that are on canon teams like the X-Men or the Avengers. To encourage variety we ask that you don't app two characters on the same team if at all possible. Exceptions may be made. However, if the characters are likely to interact heavily, it's frowned upon to 'play with yourself' as it were.
We would like to give everyone a chance to interact with each other by keeping the teams open among writers.
Final Notes Here on AWF, we encourage creative freedom. That means we let you write about the nitty gritty. The behind closed doors. We bear a mature label, and expect our members to behave maturely.
While we accept characters under the age of 18, those characters have additional restrictions.
Players with Characters under the age of 18 on AWF are not allowed to post that character in mature threads, even OOC ones such as the Morning After Game, due to the context of the game itself.
Players with Characters under the age of 18 on AWF are not allowed to have those characters partake in sexually mature or explicit threads regardless of the consent or age of the players.
Failure to adhere to this rule will result in immediate removal from AWF. We have a no tolerance policy with this rule.
