PostSubject: General Rules of the RP Section   10th June 2015, 6:28 pm

General Rules of the RP Section
We've got general rules, and then rules specific to the type of RP experience you wish to enjoy: Relaxed (it's all for fun anyway! Not too many restrictions or rules) and Advanced (for the more srs peeps). General rules are followed by everybody here, but then it splits depending on which style you want to play with. 

 General Rules:  

  1. The same rules and code of conduct that apply to the rest of the Galaxy Cauldron Forums apply to the RPG. For a copy of the Forum Rules and Code of Conduct, click here.
  2. Role-players and members of the RPG must be active members or participants of non-RPG areas of the Galaxy Cauldron Forums. 
  3. Posting and story lines should be kept PG-13 and below. 
    Definition of PG13:
     
    Or, in words a little easier to understand:
     
  4. No god-modding, power playing, or meta-gaming allowed.
    Definition of god-modding/powerplaying:
     
    Definition of Metagaming:
     
  5. Keep OOC (Out of Character) talk in role-playing posts to a minimum. Use the code below to tag all OOC posts that occur in RPing threads; do not post OOC-only posts in RP threads - post OOC-only posts in the OOC thread for your storyline.
    Code:
    [spoiler=OOC]Your OOC message[/spoiler]

  6. Once a character has reacted to one of your In-Character posts, you are not to go back and edit your post to change the flow of the story.
    Example:
     
  7. Specific posting orders and activity rules are not required in roleplay threads unless outlined in that thread's OOC board, but please be courteous. Please refrain from double-posting. Remember that sometimes fancy color tags and fonts aren't easily read on all computers. And don't hold up a roleplay for three weeks because they are waiting on you to post.




Consequences for choosing to break a Roleplay Section Rule.  

  1. First Offense The member will be contacted via PM by a staff member regarding the violation. This PM will be considered a warning.
  2.  Second Offense If the same violation continues to occur or a separate violation occurs, then the member will be contacted by a staff member via PM regarding this violation and a second warning will be issued. At this stage, two things will happen:
    (1) the member will be placed on a temporary one week probation* from all role-plays, including games and events. Their characters will be treated as NPCs until their return. *in this sense, probation means that the member will not be allowed to post in the roleplaying sections of the Galaxy Cauldron Forums, but will still have access to and may post in the rest of the Galaxy Cauldron Forums.
    (2) the member will be requested to join the Writing and Roleplaying Guild and sign up for a Roleplaying Mentor; their mentor will be advised of their situation, and will create exercises for the member to complete in an attempt to improve areas of concern brought forth through the violations the member has. If they complete all exercises successfully and demonstrate an understanding of the issues they had, why it is important to fix them, and how to go about not making the same violation again, they may be allowed to end their probationary period early.
  3. Third Offense If the same violation continues to occur or a separate violation occurs, then the member will be contacted by Sailor Uranus (or Sailor Jupiter) via PM. At this stage, the member will be placed on a temporary two week ban from the Galaxy Cauldron Forums - the entire site. As before, their characters will be treated as NPCs until their return.
  4. Final Offense At this stage, the member will be banned from the Galaxy Cauldron and given further instruction by Sailor Uranus (or Sailor Jupiter) via the email the member's account is registered with.

*** If warranted a serious offense, the member may be temporarily banned from the Galaxy Cauldron forums or given further instruction by Sailor Jupiter.

PostSubject: Storylines   10th June 2015, 7:27 pm

Storylines of the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Section
"Storylines" are what we call our different roleplays - each separate plot run by our members is considered a "Storyline". Before posting a storyline or posting in a storyline, you have to take care of some paperwork to 'legalize' your storyline (and your character in it) in our planning forums. 

 General Notes on Storylines 

  1. All storylines must be submitted to the Storylines section to be reviewed and approved by Sailor Saturn before they are created in their respective era-based roleplay areas.
  2. These Storyline submissions must follow the Storyline Submission Guideline and Form posted by Sailor Saturn in the area linked above. 
  3. There are two broad types of Storylines: Relaxed and Advanced. Each has their own general set of rules to be followed; read below for more information on either type.
  4. Once reviewed and approved by Sailor Saturn, the final form of your storyline submission will serve as your first post in your roleplay thread.
  5. Also in the first post of your roleplay thread, include:
    a) a link to your OOC Thread (if you have an OOC thread; note, your OOC thread should be created before your storyline is submitted)
    b) a list of characters and their respective players (character names linked profiles are encouraged but not mandatory)
  6. Once your first post is in place and the character profile players intended to use are approved (see process below), you can start posting in your storyline!
  7. Remember: Roleplaying Moderators and Staff Members will be reading through and enjoying your roleplay; all roleplay rules outlined above are to be followed without exception.

Note* The die-rolling and stat-point system used by Sailor Uranus in her Hardcore Event-Games is not available to be used in ordinary roleplays. The only exception to this rule is made for our Rainbow Crystal Stamp holders, who are able to implement this system if they so choose on a case-by-case basis for any roleplay that they create. A notice of the implementation of this system will be made in the first post of the OOC thread and the storyline thread by these creators if they choose to use it.

Notes on Storyline Activity
Storylines are expected to be active - to be posted in and played on a regular basis. If a storyline is thought to be going inactive (hasn't seen a new post in a few weeks), the Moderator of the story's section will bump the board with a note on the storyline's waning activity level. This time limit varies depending on the number of roleplayers in the storyline:
     2 players: 45 days of inactivity
     3+ players: 30 days of inactivity
After this warning is given, you will have one week to continue the story with an in-character post, or the storyline will be moved to the Graveyard.


 The Graveyard  
The Graveyard is where inactive storylines go to rest in peace (er, we use it to keep the boards clean XD). But don't worry! If you goofed and accidentally let your rp go inactive and want to revive it, Saturn can reverse her glaive and bring your storyline back to life! You just have to Make a Request.
Once your storyline is revived, any Moderator inactivity warnings will be removed, and you can continue posting as normal!

OOC Boards also have a graveyard; when your storyline is sent to the graveyard, so, too, is your storyline's OOC board. However, you are allowed to keep posting on your OOC board while it is in the graveyard (not so with your storyline), so you can plan and organize a comeback if you so desire. When your storyline is revived, so, too, can be your OOC board.



   The Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame is an area in the Roleplaying Section wherein storylines are moved upon their completion: when their plot has ended and their players have wrapped up the story to their liking. We move storylines to this area to show them off, to congratulate players for their hard work and dedication, and to provide readers who are looking for a completed work a place to peruse and read at their leisure.

When storylines are moved to the Hall of Fame, Sailor Neptune, the Roleplaying Section's Graphics Administrator, will make a bumper and/or a Galaxy Cauldron signature for the storyline, styled after its theme or main characters, and will add it to the first post of that storyline for players to claim and use as they would. 

Players of storylines residing in the Hall of Fame may, if they wish, opt to have their storyline turned into fanfiction and hosted on our Galaxy Cauldron Fanfiction Account, courtesy of Sailor Pluto. Information about the process can be found here.

PostSubject: Character Profiles   10th June 2015, 7:44 pm

Character Profiles in the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Section
Character Profiles are descriptions of the characters a roleplayer intends to use - they could be a general profile to be used in all in-universe storylines, or a specific profile created for a specific storyline. Before posting in a storyline, you have to take care of some paperwork to 'legalize' your character in our planning forums.

 General Notes on Character Profiles

  1. All Characters must have a profile submitted to their respective sections in the Character Profile area; these characters need to be reviewed and approved by their respective Roleplaying Admin before they are used in an approved storyline.
    a) Canon Character Profiles are to be posted in this section and are reviewed and approved by Sailor Neptune.
    b) Otaku (Original) and Crossover Character Profiles are to be posted in this section and are reviewed and approved by Sailor Pluto. Accepted Otaku and Crossover Characters can be used in all areas of the role playing section.
    Help! Is this a Canon or Crossover Profile? Check out this announcement for answers!
  2. These Character Profile submissions must follow their respective Character Profile Submission Form posted in their submission sections.
  3. There are two broad types of Character Profiles: Relaxed and Advanced. Each has their own set of profile requirements, and the type of profile you have approved dictates the type of roleplay that character can join:
    a) Approved Advanced Profiles can join both Relaxed and Advanced Storylines;
           Advanced profiles are held to higher standards than relaxed profiles, and players submitting and using advanced profiles are expected to use proper grammar and spelling and provide more in-depth descriptions and greater mastery of language than when using relaxed profiles; players submitting for advanced profiles should be comfortable creating messages and descriptions in paragraph form and replying to roleplay posts in paragraph form. Generally, Advanced categories in our RP section denote a more intensive style of roleplaying.
    b) Approved Relaxed Profiles can join Relaxed Storylines.
  4. Need help creating an Original Character? (Otaku senshi or otherwise?) Check this out!


 Why are Profiles Required?

  1. Organizational Purposes so we, and other players, know who likes to play who and can look into recruiting you for future roleplays.
  2. Knowledge so players can get to know their characters better
  3. Accountability to remind players to keep in character


 When to use a Canon or an Otaku Profile 
General Guidelines for AU RPs involving the canon Sailor Senshi

  • If your storyline takes place in a universe of a franchise that is not Sailor Moon, it must be a crossover, regardless of how many things have changed in terms of your character's personality, appearance, history, etc.
  • Any storyline that involves Sailor Moon characters but does not take place in a different franchise's world will require canon profiles.
  • Storyline Creators, when in doubt about the type of profile your storyline will require, ask an RP Staff Member! If you go for the approval before you request members, you can ask Saturn in your Storyline Submission; if you created an OOC board and have players lining up before submitting the Storyline Submission, ask the RP Mod over the OOC Section, or send a PM to one of the RP Administrators (Neptune, Pluto, or myself) and we'll be able to answer you on your specific storyline specifications as quickly as possible! 



Non-Player Character (NPC) Information  
NPC's are non-player characters (as opposed to player characters, or PC's). While Player characters have a roleplayer behind them directing their actions and thoughts, non-player characters generally do not. Player Characters must go through the profile approval process outlined above, while NPC's do not, as their roles are generally side or supporting roles and are used to advance the plot in some way and then usually disappear from the story.
Typically, NPC's are controlled by the storyline creator, but, if stated in the OOC for the storyline, anyone in the roleplay can control them. 
At the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Forums, we typically treat NPC's thusly:
Quote :
Any player can control an NPC, but they could never be them - like we don't write for them but we can write about what they do.

Like you can have them speak and whatnot, just can't be in their minds.
 
For example, having an NPC waiter/waitress take your order and then describing that they went and got it and returned would be using the NPC, going into her motive behind her actions, her thoughts as she got the food, etc., would not be NPC. NPCing a victim of a tragedy may have them tell the rest of the group what they had gone through, and maybe point out the next objective for the group, but going into their backstory, their feelings, or their thought-process would not be NPC. Generally, you show what NPC's do, not explain why they are doing it.
If an NPC goes beyond the realm of being an NPC - for example, a player goes too far into their heads, making them a feature rather than an accessory - we will request that the player either a) revise their post or b) make a profile and turn the NPC into a PC within one day of the post being made.

If multiple in-depth posts (i.e., posts told from the "NPC's" perspective) are made and it is obvious that the NPC is being treated as a PC by the player, the player will receive a warning for posting in a storyline without an accepted profile. 

Players that go on LOA and leave instructions for another person to "control" their character generally means to treat their character as an NPC, else assure that their character is not left behind if the setting keeps moving - it does not give permission for another player to roleplay as their character without an approved profile.

Character Profile Adoptions in the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Section
Sometimes, for one reason or another, you might be interested in adopting a premade character profile. Maybe you're just trying out a character and want to get a feel for them; maybe someone put a neat-looking Otaku Senshi up for adoption and you want to give her a home; maybe you want to try something new for that upcoming event; maybe a player went inactive in a roleplay that required a specific type of profile, and you'd like to adopt their profile and take over their place (either while they are away or, in some cases, permanently). In any case, we have an Adoptables Section, run by Sailor Pluto, that is made to fit your needs.

 General Notes on Character Adoption  
Otaku's-R-Us
Relaxed Side-Character Adoptions

  1. If a character is listed as up for adoption, he or she may be claimed by any player, to be used in any roleplay where such a character is welcomed.
  2. To officially adopt a character, follow the guidelines outlined in the Adoptables Section to claim them; you may then submit a Relaxed or Advanced Profile to the appropriate areas to be reviewed and approved by their respective Roleplaying Admins (see above). 
  3. Once you have adopted a character, they are yours! You can change anything about them - use adoptables as a springboard for other ideas, or flesh them out and take them in a direction of your choosing! Have fun with them!


 Notes on Adopting Pre-Approved Player-Made Characters  
Sometimes an approved character, created by another player, involved in a specific storyline, may become available for adoption to be used in that specific storyline. In order for this to happen, one or more of these specific guidelines have been met:

  1. The player approves of/agrees to putting the specific character up for adoption. 
    a) This may be because they are going on LOA and want someone to officially cover their character (temporary adoption) or
    b) they are uninterested in continuing the storyline any further (permanent adoption).
    ---If the original creator is involved, they may see Sailor Pluto about putting a copy of their character profile, complete with Storyline Specific Information about the specific roleplay that character can be used in, into the Adoptables Area. 
  2. The player has not returned to the Galaxy Cauldron or replied to PMs sent to them in over 30 days without an LOA posted (possibly contested adoption - handled case by case by RP Admin).
    ---If the original character is not involved, other players in said story may make an appeal to Sailor Pluto to get a copy of the player's character profile, complete with specific Storyline Information, into the Adoptables Area.

When adoptions of this sort are made:

  1. That character profile is only approved for the adoptee for the storyline specified, and cannot be used by that character in any other storyline. ((You're taking someone else's kid to the amusement park - they don't go with you everywhere))

PostSubject: Relaxed and Advanced   10th June 2015, 8:34 pm

Types of Roleplays in the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Section: Relaxed vs Advanced
We have two general types of roleplay scenarios for players to enjoy: Relaxed (it's all for fun anyway! Not too many additional restrictions or rules) and Advanced (for the more srs ppl). 
*Remember, the General Rules are to be followed in all storylines, regardless of Relaxed or Advanced Status

 Relaxed Roleplay Rules  

  1. All roleplaying posts must be written in the third person limited narrative styling (no first person posts), and must be easily understood by players and readers.
  2. Players wishing to play in a Relaxed Storyline must have their chosen character's profile approved by the appropriate Roleplay Admin (see above) - they can use characters approved by either [Relaxed] or [Advanced] standards, but playing in a [Relaxed] Storyline only requires a [Relaxed] Profile.
  3. Players playing Canon Characters will be expected to abide by the personality traits that they outlined and were accepted by Sailor Neptune during the profile approval process.
  4. Relaxed Storylines must be approved by Sailor Saturn before going into play (see above).
  5. All Relaxed RP Threads (OOC, Storyline Submission, Character Profiles, and RP Threads) must be tagged [Relaxed].



 Advanced Roleplay Rules 

  1. All roleplaying posts must meet a minimum of 100 words per post, be made in the third person, and must aim for correct grammar and spelling.
  2. Players playing Canon Characters will be held to a higher (advanced) standard when portraying their character and are expected to abide by their character's personality, as such:
  3. Players wishing to play in an Advanced Storyline must have their chosen character's profile approved by the appropriate Roleplaying admin (see above); this profile must meet and be approved by [Advanced] standards.
  4. Advanced Storylines must be approved by Sailor Saturn before going into play (see above).
  5. All Advanced RP threads (OOC, Storyline Submission, Character Profiles, and RP Threads) must be tagged [Advanced].

PostSubject: Events   10th June 2015, 8:54 pm

Roleplaying Events in the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Section: Casual and Hardcore
Events are special storylines run by Roleplay Administrators or Rainbow Crystal Stamp Holders; there are two very different kinds of events with different rules, expectations, and activity levels for players. These types and expectations are laid out below:

 Casual Events   
Casual events are friendly, easy-going free-for-all roleplays that generally follow [Relaxed] standards, but welcome [Advanced] posting as well. They are coordinated by Sailor Saturn, take place in the Casual Events Area and come in two different durations: Weekend and Two Weeks.

  1. Weekend Casual Events: (2-3 days)
    No tasks to be completed.
    Activity Rule: Members must be active more days than not and meet the given goal. (Typically a weekend event is 3 days, but in some instances may cause for an extra day or two. Example: An event lasting Friday through Sunday with a a goal of posting 5 times using 50 or more words per post. (The participants must post 2/3 days and have at least 5 posts using at least 50 or more words per post)
  2. Two Full Weeks:
    Tasks are assigned by Saturn during the roleplay and they must be completed within the given time frame, usually 1 to 2 days. Tasks are meant to keep roleplayers engaged through simple roleplaying in order to obtain one overall goal.
    Activity Rule: You are allowed to miss 2 tasks
  3. Overall Rules:
    Follow the RPG rules (Relaxed posting)
    Steady Paced and Simple posts are preferred, however advanced posts are welcomed
    If you break any of the Activity Rules, then you might be disqualified from being able to use the end of the Casual Event prizes (bumpers, signatures, etc) as it is not fair for everyone to be able to use these prizes when only certain members were active.
     If a player has made three posts inconsistent with the rest of the storyline (consistency errors with character placement, who-is-talking-to-whom, what happened, etc., that temporarily derails the event so edits can be made to fix that inconsistency), then the event host reserves the right to ban them from the event in order to protect the smooth flow and enjoyment of all the rest of the players involved.
  4. Requirements:
    Must be active enough to complete given tasks & goals
    By joining events, you agree to the Activity Rules
    Casual events do not require character profiles.  

Examples of Casual Events: The Calcite SenshiAlter Egos, and A Senshi Dollhouse 


Like a Star @ heaven Point Card: You can mark the event square on a Monthly Point Card only if you did not fall inactive during the casual event.




 Hardcore Events   
Hardcore events are a sampling of all the Roleplaying Section has to offer: profile approvals, live-chat sessions, dungeon crawler game elements, and a one-month time limit to complete the story or get a bad ending.

  1. Duration:
     One month exactly, unless a problem arises with the host, in which case the event will be extended for the number of days the host was absent.
    If the storyline is not resolved within a month's time, the mission fails. 
  2. General Rules:
     All roleplay rules and gc rules apply
     Activity Rule: Participants are required to post within 24-48 hours or will be removed from the event (their characters will either be lost or replaced).
           Random Events may be introduced into the story if all players are active within the OOC chat or on the boards; Random Events are storyline plot events in which players will have a limited time to respond before consequences are enacted; each will come with a caveat in that if you cannot respond within the given time-frame, you may request another player's character take your character with them (if movement is required).
     Consistency Rule: All players are held to the understanding that they will pay attention to the story flow, taking note of roleplay elements (situational - who's talking to who, where people are located, etc) and event elements (their HP, MP, the placement of others on the map, etc.). If a player derails the event with inconsistencies, consequences will occur. 
  3. Requirements:
    Character Profile - Participants are required to have their character's profile submitted and approved before the event begins. *Advanced Hardcore Events require advanced character profiles.
     Word Requirement - Advanced Hardcore Events require minimum 100-word posts.
  4. Additional Elements:
     Live Chat - some Hardcore Events will have live-chat sessions to start, end, or move the story along. Participants are required to have a discord account for these live-chat events if they don't want their character NPC'd through those instances.
     Dungeon Crawler - some Hardcore Events will have dungeon-crawler game elements to them, wherein players will need to distribute attribute points to reflect their characters strengths, weaknesses, and special abilities, and will need to prescribe MP requirements to attacks. During these events, they will be at the mercy of random number generators (digital Dungeons and Dragons style die) for attacks and defense rolls to minimize godmodding and/or powerplaying.
     Certain Events officially happen within the Galaxy Cauldron's Crystal Tokyo Timeline and so can be added to character's histories, instead of just their Storyline Information sections. Participating in these events, whether playing an original character or a canon character, can have consequences within this timeline we're creating together - characters can become famous, can make enemies and allies, and can, through storyline events, grow and develop as characters and let that development follow them through the overarching plot. The current Otaku-inclusive event train is as follows:

    Note, therefore, that choices have consequences in these games. Characters can die in these events if their HP goes less than 0 (in some circumstances), and therefore will not be allowed back into the chain after that event, and players who set stories in their character's 'future' may stipulate that a 'dead' character not participate because in their character's canon, that character is dead. This does not happen often.

Monthly Challenges in the Galaxy Cauldron Roleplaying Section
Every month on the fifth, during the Roleplay Section Town Hall Meeting, the Roleplaying Admin issue challenges to the roleplaying community; these challenges range from easy-peasy to woah-that's-tough, and usually focus on a theme, activity levels, storyline completion, or goals. Participating in these monthly challenges is not mandatory, but we encourage everyone to check them out to become more involved in the section! Participation in or successful completion of these monthly challenges can earn players Roleplay Activity Card Points (by the truckload depending on what you do!) and beautiful bumpers to display in your signature, not to mention the bonds you've created through banding together with people when roleplaying!

Monthly Challenge Archive
Click on the award bumpers below to check out past RP Challenges, and remember to keep an eye out in the RPG Announcements Section on the 5th for the next Challenge! You can easily spot challenges by their [RP Challenge] tag, and each challenge is color-coded to the month they're attached to!

Challenge Complements
Accompanying our challenges, the RP Staff puts forth Casual Events or Live-Chat Roleplays (2 hour long Discord-based mini-events) that can count towards the Challenge Goals; these are always announced within the challenge threads, and then are carried out in other boards hosted in the RPG Announcement section, color coded to match the challenge and month! Examples (with links) are below:


Challenges and Challenge Complements are put together by the RP Staff Team during our monthly meetings; however, if you have an idea for a monthly Challenge or Challenge Theme, we'd love to hear from you! Submit it through our RP Suggestion Box!

Roleplaying through the Gates to the Multiverse
The Gates to the Multiverse, the Galaxy Cauldron's Open-Themed Roleplaying Area
 What do you mean by Open-Themed? 
        Open-Themed means that, unlike the Silver Millennium, Tokyo City, Crystal Tokyo, and greater Free-Form Forum, roleplays happening in this area are not required to be in any way related to Sailor Moon. They can happen in any world, with any characters, and go through any plot - whatever and wherever your imagination takes you, you can roleplay it here. ((You know, if you've got someone who wants to jump in, too!))
Multiverse Storyline Submission Information:
 

 Rules for the Gates to the Multiverse  

  • First and foremost, like any roleplay on our site, all GC RPG Rules apply.
  • Like any other roleplay, all storylines must be approved by Sailor Saturn before they can start in this section. There is an additional field for these roleplays in their storyline application that Saturn will be filling out for you.
  • Like any other character, all characters must be approved by Sailor Pluto or Sailor Neptune before they can be played in this section.
  • Like any other roleplay, storylines will be separated into Advanced and Relaxed; Advanced Storylines here will be held to the same Advanced standards in the rest of the roleplaying section.
  • Like any other storyline, roleplays will be read and watched by our roleplaying staff because we love to read to ensure all roleplayers are treated fairly
  • One Additional Rule Applies: In order to play within this forum, you must have at least one (1) active (more than three posts per month) Sailor Moon themed roleplay. ^^ This area is an addition to what we're already offering, not a main focus xD ♥ Go Wild! But don't forget about our precious cinnamon rolls. ♥

 Regarding Gates to the Multiverse Character Applications 
          As characters in this area can come from any world (anime, manga, video game, sci-fi, fantasy, modern, etc. -series and original works set in various worlds), their profiles don't exactly fit into our current Canon or Otaku/Crossover Character Profile sections; to adjust for this, we have opened a new Profile Section: the Multiverse Characters boards. As stated in the instructional thread you'll find pinned there, the character application form looks a little different; please fill it out to the best of your ability and follow the requested thread title scheme. Profiles in this new zone will be reviewed by either Sailor Neptune or Sailor Pluto. 
Multiverse Character Submission Guidelines:
 


  Regarding Silver Millennium Highlights   
        As we are a Sailor Moon fan forum, please understand that, while we love and appreciate this section, our monthly themes, challenges, featured storyline, and events (both casual, hard-core, and live-chat) will not feature non-Sailor Moon storylines. Characters are, of course, welcome in crossover settings, but we would like to keep the highlight on Sailor Moon (in this Sailor Moon fan forum ^.~)

        As far as the Roleplay Activity Point Card goes, while storylines here won't be taking center stage, you are still free to claim activity points for working in this section, so long as you are also active in a Sailor Moon themed roleplay! You may claim on your card all character applications and storylines, one-to-one, that get approved throughout the month. 

 Moderators of this Section 
        The moderator of this section is... all of our Roleplaying Moderators! We're all knowledgeable about Sailor Moon, but perhaps not all masters of everything, so our moderators will be splitting the load in here, based on who knows about which series or genre. When your storyline is approved, Sailor Saturn will add an additional field to your application stating who your storyline's official moderator will be. Please pay attention to anything that they PM to you or comment in your thread or OOC board, just like you would when you're playing in their official area!
