This is a brand new RP, which will hopefully be a lot of fun. ^_^;
Format: Livejournal / AIM. (Second one is not required.)
Genre: Anime (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Name: Alchemist RP
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, mistressboleyn
Website: alchemist_rp / alchemist_ooc
Minimum Age Requirement: No limit, but there will be slash and adult themes, so maturity is requested.
Characters Needed: Any character aside from Edward Elric, Winry Rockbell, Alphonse Elric, Riza Hawkeye, Roy Mustang and Russell Tringham. (Anime and manga characters both accepted.)
(Note: This is an AU RP.)
This story actually takes place during the Fullmetal Alchemist anime. As we all know, Edward and Alphonse Elric are brothers who tried to bring their mother back from the dead, but failed in the end, one losing his entire body and the other losing part of his. They have since vowed to get their bodies back and have set on a journey in search of the item that just might make their dreams come true, the Philosopher's Stone....
And this is where we get to the AU part of things. (AU standing for "alternate universe".) This RP is by no means obligated to follow the anime storyline in any way and thus we are allowed the freedom to do as we will. (Granted that it is IC behaviour.) The only things that are set in stone are the very basics of the show, such as the Elric brothers searching for the Philosopher's Stone, Edward Elric being a so-called "dog of the military", the Sins being who they are with the purpose they had and such forth. Everything else is left up to our own imaginations and wishes. Not too hard, right?
(Yes, these had to be done. They won't be anything outrageous, don't worry.)
1.) Be courteous to all players. If you have a problem with someone in particular, it is suggested that you take it up with a mod. If any childish behaviour is spotted, you will be issued one warning and one warning alone before being removed from the community. I hardly think asking everyone to be polite is too much.
2.) Stay in character at all times. This rule cannot be stressed enough. When someone wants to interact with the character you have decided to play, they want to interact with that character, not with whatever alter version you want to give them. If your character is meant to be strong and quiet, have them strong and quiet. If they're supposed to be loud and obnoxious, have them loud and obnoxious. Storylines are up for debate here, your character's basic personality is not. (I must add, though, that you can feel free to add your own little quirks to the characters, as long as it doesn't hinder them from remaining in character.)
3.) No god-modding. This means that you do NOT make a character do *anything* unless it is your character or you previously have permission from the original mun (player) of the character. (And, please, if this happens, let a mod know so there will be no problem!)
4.) Use lj-cuts when posting RP logs. (If you do not know how to use one, please see the FAQ here.) Make sure that you label these logs properly, letting everyone know which characters are involved, when the log takes place, the rating and such forth.
5.) Have some maturity! NC-17 posts *are* welcomed here (Just make sure you give it the proper rating, so people will know *before* they read it!) as are dark themes (Also properly labelled), so make sure that you are willing to deal with this when joining this community, because all complaints will be ignored later on, as it means you have obviously not done your homework.
7.) Use proper grammar/spelling! (An easy, online spell checker can be found here.) No one likes reading through a bunch of mispelled words and netspeak is just INCREDIBLY annoying. You will only receive two warnings about this before you are tossed from the community.
8.) Be aware that all pairings are accepted in this community. Whether it be het, yaoi or yuri. If you have a problem with any of these, either kindly keep it to yourself or perhaps find another RP to join.
9.) One character per person. Perhaps later this rule will be changed, but, as of right now, please only apply for one character. (Also, be sure to check recent applications/the taken character list to make sure you're not applying for a character that's already been applied for/taken.)
