Due to mature themes like violence and sexual content, this game is for players who are 18 years of age and up (hence the age question on the application).
Is entirely unnecessary. This is a game and the point is to have fun. If there are any issues, contact the mod by pm, email (email@example.com), or drop box.
Don’t do anything to another character without player permission, please. Presumably, if you’re applying you know what to do and not to do when it comes to Mary Sues and godmodding. Again, if there are any issues, contact the mod. In case you really don’t know what Mary Sues and godmodding are, here are some helpful links: Mary-Sue Litmus Test Definition of godmodding
Spelling and grammar are important and it’s always a good idea to check over your writing before posting it. Firefox shows when words are spelled incorrectly, and if you’re unsure there’s always a dictionary. Please try to make sure your writing makes sense and put some effort into spelling.
There isn't one. People ought to know what they can handle and won't bite off more than they can chew. However, the higher you get as far as character number the more stringently your subsequent character applications will be reviewed. Please wait at least a month before you decide to apply for another character.
Activity is important in any game and particularly one that is set in real time. If you’re going on hiatus please inform the mod.
The mod, and all the players, have responsibilities and lives outside the game. Real life always comes first, so don’t be afraid to take a hiatus if necessary. If you do take a hiatus please understand that hiatuses may be no longer than two months at a time.
Please keep your PBs as close to canon as possible. This does not, however, mean that you have to use the actors from any of the movies. Check the resource page for icon communities that might help with PB ideas. Hollow Art is particularly helpful.
Even if you are aware of information, your character may not be. Unless the information is explicitly told to your character by another character or you and another player have arranged for your character to eavesdrop, chances are you don’t know the details of private conversations or events. Please try and keep your character knowledge and your player knowledge separate. Conversely, just because certain things aren’t threaded does not mean they aren’t occurring. It is safe to assume that if your character lives with another character they see one another on a daily basis, even if there aren’t threads of them on a daily basis. It is somewhat unrealistic for roommates/best friends/lovers/etc. to go a few weeks without talking. If you’re not sure if your character would be aware of something, ask the other character it is concerning and work something out.
Feel free to share your ideas. If you want to do something that affects the entire game please inform the mod ahead of time. If you’re part of a group (X-men, Avengers, etc.) don’t be afraid to come up with missions and villains for them to encounter. Plot will be primarily player driven, though there will periodically be mod-run events that affect the entire game. In effect, there is very little in this game that you can’t do.
Interact! Unless it’s absolutely positively out of character for your character to speak to someone (and chances are, you’ll always have a chance to speak) then try to interact with anyone and everyone. Even if the characters hate one another, they can still exchange insults. Interaction makes for plots, fun, and keeps the game going.
Because J. Jonah Jameson says so.
