Welcome to Avalon! It is surely the first thing you and your character will hear. We are a canon Panfandom RP. We are an open sandbox set in a modern-fantasy like setting. We allow members to be very plot driven and follow along with events and main plot changes to their own level of comfort. Possibilities are almost endless and we allow almost all genres of characters. Many characters have a hard time accepting their lives in this new world while others embrace it.
Avalon
FORECAST: 24 hours of nighttime and cold every day.

Out of Character
Here you can find more information concerning things out of character or 'OOC'. Things such as the mini profile, activity check, plotters, RFs, and other concerns can be found here!


Technology Level
Avalon is set in a modern fantasy world. Though there are no (or very few) cars in this world but other methods of travel.

Faceclaims for a anime/game character?
For the most part no. We're more lenient with IRL faces for book characters and case-by-case characters which have little to no artwork.

Spoilers!?
Yes you will run into spoilers here so here's the official spoiler warning when reading threads, profiles, etc. However, please use some digression.

More on Activity
You can ask for the return of characters and threads, which are archived after every AC, with staff's discretion. If you lose several characters in an AC and you have not been known for being very active the staff reserve the right to limit the characters you may have returned to you. If you are caught only posting on the week of the AC for two or more months you will likely be asked to drop some of your characters until further notice. The staff also reserve the right to deny you any more characters if your activity has been poor.

Reclaiming
Characters that have been lost may only be reclaimed up to three times. You are free to pick another character and continue rping here.

Mini Profile
Filling out your mini profile is mandatory. Claims will not be accepted until the required information is filled in the mini profiles. You have three days after approval. USER CP located near the INBOX link. From there, you click on EDIT PROFLE INFO located on the left side in the list, under PERSONAL PROFILE.

*The sections that are required to fill are as follows: Race, Link to Profile, Series, Rectangular Image (It auto resizes), Job, Timezone, Alias, 250x400 Avatar, Age.

*The following fields should be filled if they exist: Link to Shipper, Link to Tracker, Link to Character Dev, Link to Character Ad

Rapidfire Roleplays
Yes we allow rapid-fires as long as they are marked as such. The only real rules behind this are; 1. They can't be your only threads. And 2. only one rapid-fire thread can be used in the Activity check for that character.

Plotters and Trackers
While plotters and trackers are not mandatory, they're still a nice addition to keeping your character and your plots up to scratch. Plotters are one character per thread and Trackers are one player per thread.

Characters that (you) don't know?
We created this site for multiple fandoms to join, its more than likely you're going to see a lot of characters you do and don't know. Try to plot and rp with characters you do and don't or you really will be missing out on the experience.

Character-Related
Here you can find more information concerning things in-character or character-related things such as groups, NPCs, banned characters, powers, and other concerns!


Character Groups?
The idea is to choose the group that describes your character the MOST.

Different Versions of Characters
There will only be one version Peter Parker/Spider Man allowed. Other characters who are based on the same character but are completely different 'characters' (for example an Original Disney character and the Once Upon a Time version) will likely allow both.

Dating-sim Characters?
We do allow the main characters as well, as long as they have a basic personality and can be given a canon name.

Sandbox Characters
This is a case-by-case basis. Default names and images if they have one, or use artwork if you have the option of choosing gender. We also ask that you stick to their main story and personality. Some do have some default personality traits. Such as Hawke from Dragonage.

Playing non-human characters?
We allow some of these. We don't allow gijinkas. There are often those non human characters that do not fit well into our environment. Characters from Lion King, MLP, Transformers, Cars, and other non-human characters would be difficult to blend into our world. For many this will be very case-by-case on which we allow.

Banned Characters?
Your character has to be from a series with a set universe and canon. For example Tom & Jerry wouldn't work. Or a series created to crude or overbearing such as South Park and Family Guy. Documentary or real life people (though characters based on them is fine). Vague background NPC. Strictly 'entity' characters, parodies, purely comedic series, and porn-based are also on this list.

Banned Cont. Case-by-case Characters
Every character on the site goes through the same approval process, applications and character choices are reviewed by more than one if not all of the staff. We will be as unbiased as possible but when allowing character choices onto the site. Characters we, as a whole , agree as being difficult to socialize, interact with, take seriously to some degree, or will likely make other people uncomfortable, will not be allowed.

Canon character NPCs?
The need to NPC another canon character from the same series is rare and we want to keep it need-only. Examples of characters with expected NPCs are those who cannot live or communicate without the other, share bodies, or is considered more of a pet. IE. Ash would have his pokemon and Pikachu, Link would have his companion. Soul Eater and Noragami characters are expected to be played individually because they can usually function apart.

Language Barriers?
This is up to the Rper of that character, while most people brought here are imbued with the ability to understand each other. However there we'll allow it if you want your character to be unable to perfectly understand or speak Avalonian (or english basically).

How does one character perceive another?
Each character simply sees the other as they would in their own world. People from a TV series with real life actors would simply look at an anime character as a really good cosplayer for example. Varying animated styles would simply see them as one of their own in return.

Full and Taken Names?
Use your characters full name when registering. In cases of taken names try to give them a 'last name' if the other is taken. If needed a character could be called Bob 'of [Kingdomname]' or maybe use some kind of short nickname as their surname.

Order of Japanese Names?
Its preferred you use these correctly. While this wont be forced, you're going to end up sort of being the odd one out and probably have to explain what is what to people. Japanese tradition puts Last/Family names 'first' and then given/first names last. Of course this is geared more toward characters who are actually Japanese. Not all characters, just because they are of Japanese creation would follow this rule. Why? Mostly because it feels historically and canonly accurate.

Years in Avalon? Ageing?
We will allow most people to choose how long they have been in Avalon. Though this also means ageing up a character, Avalon more or less runs real-world time. In most cases this will vary from character to character and case-by-case. Human characters we typically wouldn't allow any more than two-three years. Non human characters who don't change and age may be considered differently and allowed to have been here longer.

The use of NPCs?
Yes you are allowed to NPC random people around the city.

Characters Powers
We're not too strict on characters powers and wont typically ask you to remove any. We ask in the application that you try to explain and balance out your powers and weaknesses. This can be something as simple as 'using X skill/magic tires them out' or you can give cooldown/warmup times if you like. For characters with greater or world altering or obliterating powers we do ask you weaken them considerably to allow for fair play. For plot value it is very likely who or whatever has brought characters to this world has weakened some of these abilities too. Other abilities such as mind control or any form of manipulation can remain (if you want) however these types of abilities can only be used with the agreement of the fellow Rper. Just keep in mind here every character can die, try to weaken some of the more extreme abilities or add weaknesses (even if head-canoned).

Canon Point
Typically we allow you to chose any canon point. Any characters taken from their intros or first episodes are most likely to be turned down because lack of development. Characters who have very in-dept detailed pasts, or prequel games, movies, novels, etc will likely be allowed. But in cases were little more is known of the events where you take them it is unlikely and difficult to tell if they are in character at all.

Canon Groups
Here you will find information based on our canon groups such as council, guard, and more. Of course each group will also have information and rules posted on their plotter page.


Age Restrictions
For Council or Avalon Guard Captain your character must be an adult. They must be over 21 otherwise. Preferably older (but this is not a requirement at this time.) Silhouette currently does not have any age restrictions.

Activity
People who join main canon groups should try to post more often otherwise they will not receive any special perks from the groups. The Avalon Council is the governing body and it would make sense for them to gain recognition among the citizens; both good and bad through the coarse of RP. And if inactivity continues with only the minimum posts the staff will consider removing you and opening the position.

A Fitting Personality
We are glad to welcome varying personality types into the council or guard, if we have too many of one type we may ask you to choose someone else. Most tyrants shouldn't get away with becoming Council or Guards, while most flower girls probably won't make for good Silhouettes. Please give careful consideration to the character you are choosing to sign up. In most cases when applying to become council person the staff will discuss if they are an appropriate choice. Silhouette has much more freedom however.

Hidden Identities
Of course every character is free to separate their work from their personal lives if they wish to use some other name or something. On one hand however it would be a requirement for people's identities to be known to end up in a Guard or Council position. Leave the masks to the super-heroes so to speak (which are also allowed), but to save face and confusion it is best that everyone wears their own faces so to speak. Of course off duty they may do as they wish. Silhouette on the other had does not care who wears a mask.
