Welcome to The Den! Please, won't you come and relax a while? We have a little something on offer for just about everyone, from the casual roleplayer to the dedicated BDSM fan. We are, of course, first and foremost a master/slave room, though you'll find in short order we cater to much, much more. Please be aware that we are most definitely a public smut room! If you can't stand seeing people having their fun in the open this humble inn is not for you!
So, what exactly is The Den? Currently, The Den is a small, developing inn situated in the heart of a lush forest. We are a crossroads for time periods, dimensions and realities and as such we place no restriction on your character type. The Den's lobby contains a large lounge area with plentiful couches, recliners, coffee tables and reading areas. Beyond that lies a full service bar, one of our tenders should be happy to serve you whatever you like! Downstairs we feature a wine cellar and upstairs lie the rooms. The rooms can contain whatever amenities you require, but we ask you keep roleplay in the upstairs rooms to PM's, as they're supposed to be private rooms!
The Slave Den
The Den's History
1. Respect the mods, if they give you a warning about something that isn't a rule per sey, do not go Phoenix Wright on us, sit your ass down and stop whatever you got the warning for.
2. Respect the other guests, do not harass someone because of their fetishes, orientation, post length, profile state, if they're not bothering you, don't bother them.
3. No "White Knighting". If you see a violent RP going on (rape, murder, etc) seek the permission of everyone involved in the RP, both victim and aggressor alike, before attempting to come in and "save" the victim. White Knighting into a situation where you are not welcome is considered disruptive, players in the room are assumed to be consenting adults not actually in need of saving. White Knighting is only acceptable if the scene is agreed upon by all parties involved.
4. Starting a (consentual) RP fight is fine, RP drama is welcome, everyone love's a good actiony-adventury-drama sort of scene. However, bare in mind that acting should be kept to acting, bitterness OOC over something that happened IC is unwelcome.
5. This room is primarily a BDSM room but everyone is welcome.
6. OOC Racism/sexism are not permitted, tread lightly using it IC.
7. Ask before advertising, LFRP ads (that are looking for RP and not simply advertising a room) are exempt from this rule.
8. We are paired with Girls Only Original as sibling rooms, for the females among us, please feel free to check them out!
9: We have instated a profile rule. Your profile needs to make it clear what your character is. It doesn't need any fancy coding, but it does need to answer the question 'What is this character'. A picture and a paragraph, to quote dating site TV ads. To clarify this, we don't require a picture, the minimum we require is a physical description of some sort (baseball stats) OR a picture -- AND a paragraph of information. At least a portion of your information (enough to meet the rule) must reasonably be expected to be read by the average user (ie. in plain text and English.)
10. This is an RP room, not an OOC room, please try to keep heavy OOC chatter down if a lot of RP is going on.
11. The N-word and the F-word have no place in this chatroom.
BDSM is a variety of erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other interpersonal dynamics. Given the wide range of practices, some of which may be engaged in by people who do not consider themselves as practicing BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent on self-identification and shared experience. Interest in BDSM can range from one-time experimentation to a lifestyle.
The term BDSM is interpreted as a combination of the abbreviations B/D (Bondage and Discipline), D/s (Dominance and submission), and S/M (Sadism and Masochism). BDSM is now used as a catch-all phrase covering a wide range of activities, forms of interpersonal relationships, and distinct subcultures. BDSM communities generally welcome anyone with a non-normative streak who identifies with the community; this may include cross-dressers, body modification enthusiasts, animal roleplayers, rubber fetishists, and others.
Unlike the usual "power neutral" relationships and play styles commonly followed by couples, activities and relationships within a BDSM context are often characterized by the participants' taking on complementary, but unequal roles; thus, the idea of informed consent of both the partners becomes essential. The participant who exerts sexual dominance over their partner is known as the dominant or top, while the participant who take the passive, receiving, or obedient role is known as the submissive or bottom.
Individuals are also sometimes abbreviated when referred to in writing, so a dominant person may be referred to as a "dom" for a man or a woman. Sometimes a woman may choose to use the female specific term "Domme". Both terms are pronounced the same when spoken. Individuals who can change between top/dominant and bottom/submissive roles—whether from relationship to relationship or within a given relationship—are known as switches. The precise definition of roles and self-identification is a common subject of debate within the community.
Below is a general history of the Slave Den itself as well as the parent setting the Den resides within. Keep in mind that while the Den is a nexus for interdimensional travel, its parent world has a set of rules and physical laws that may be different from your character's. (Unless of course your character comes from the world the Den is on, in which case Zila will be happy to answer any further questions about the parent world of Igir.)
The Slave Den itself is a gothic-era inn and bar with two above ground floors and a basement. The ground floor houses a lobby, bar, and several lounges while the upstairs area is devoted entirely to the vast number of rooms rented out to guests and patrons at a standard rate of 3g/night. The basement houses the portals that bring in guests from other worlds as well as various storage areas for items and slaves alike. Any roleplay done in the upper rooms or down in the basements should be kept to private messages, as they are designed to be private areas. Outside of the building is a lush seasonal forest, cursed thoroughly by dark magic to serve as a defense against outside influence by the various powers of the land. This corrupted woodland allows the Slave Den to maintain independence from the laws of the land without the need to upkeep a large army. Just outside of the Den is a natural hotspring. Important note: The area within 5m of the water's edge is enchanted to remove any clothes and teleport them safely from their wearer and onto the ground nearby. Environmentally speaking, the Den is situated well above the planet's equator, within the northern Temperate zone. As such, the winters are cold, but the summers are pleasant.
The planet itself is known as Igir and hosts two major civilized continents: Morhal and Sel'lem. Morhal, where the Den is situated, is roughly the size of Australia and hosts a civilization of humans representative of Victorian Europe in culture and tech level.
Basic important facts of the setting:
Deities are not only real, but demonstrable.
High magic, magic is accepted (rather than shunned) in most places.
Most cultures use the standard Copper/Silver/Gold/Platinum heirarchy for money.
In particular, the rules of metaphysics (death, deities, souls) tend to clash most often between original characters of different universes. The rules of this setting are merely a suggestion, not meant to infringe on your character's universe rules or metaphysics. However, this works both ways; no particular character's idea of what happens when someone dies trumps another's. If you have any further questions about the setting please direct them to Zila. More will certainly be added here in the future.
BDSM is an umbrella term for certain kinds of erotic behavior between consenting adults. There are distinct subcultures under this umbrella term. Terminology for roles varies widely among the subcultures. Top and dominant are widely used for those partner(s) in the relationship or activity who are, respectively, the physically active or controlling participants. Bottom and submissive are widely used for those partner(s) in the relationship or activity who are, respectively, the physically receptive or controlled participants. The interaction between tops and bottoms—where physical or mental control of the bottom is surrendered to the top—is sometimes known as "power exchange", whether in the context of an encounter or a relationship.
At one end of the spectrum are those who are indifferent to, or even reject physical stimulation. At the other end of the spectrum are bottoms who enjoy discipline and erotic humiliation but are not willing to be subordinate to the person who applies it. The bottom is frequently the partner who specifies the basic conditions of the session and gives instructions, directly or indirectly, in the negotiation, while the top often respects this guidance. Other bottoms often called "brats" try to incur punishment from their tops by provoking them or "misbehaving". Nevertheless, a purist "school" exists within the BDSM community, which regards such "topping from the bottom" as rude or even incompatible with the standards of BDSM relations.

The Bill of Lewd
We, the mods of the den hold these truths to be self evident. Not all men are created equal, but before the sight of those that enjoy cock they shall be given the chance to disprove it takes longer to get there in a row boat. Let not a lesbian be judged by the length of her tongue, but how skillfully she applies it. All people have the right to form a perfect union with themselves, others, groups of others, hamsters, toasters, it doesn't really matter.
