Rules & Approvals
What goes, and what doesn't...
First and foremost is the Golden Rule, do unto others as you'd like others do unto you. So, be kind, be helpful. I am not expecting an encyclopediac knowledge of the madness that is the deep lore from players, it's about 75% made up by me, Jaska, on the spot anyway. If your knowledge is shallow that's fine, ask questions!
Next, if a scene is ongoing please keep OOC to a minimum, or feel free to spawn up an OOC sub-room if you can't be involved but do want to chat. I am not going to enforce this heavily on light scenes, so long as it's not getting to be more OOC than IC, but the more folks participating, ideally the less folks OOCing.
Finally, please please please keep the drama llamas in check.
As to getting characters approved, first and foremost, no literal gods. Given that Gods in this setting are all Big Visible Things in the material world, there's not exactly a lot you can do if the scene is not physically near your River God. Stuff from Before is thousands of years old, and spirits don't remember and the gods won't tell, so being privvy to Before secrets is something that would be a Major Plot Point (not that this is forbidden, but please check first!)
Flipside is, you are player characters, you are going to be a cut above the usual riff raff, so you can expect to be pretty damn good at something or other, just not everything. A jack-of-all-trades shouldn't be a master of them too. Characters can hop in, however if someone lets you know that your character is a bit much, please get in touch with a mod/admin to see about where things stand. We reserve the right to ask you to dial things back.
