Welcome to Esoteric Minds, a Role Playing Game based on your Original Characters and the lives they live. EM starts with a basic city setting with one simple plotline to follow; Live your life the way you want to. Think of it like the Sims game, you're in complete control of your character. All you have to do is follow a few rules and you're all set! So enjoy the rpg and I hope to see you in the city!
Beyond the understanding of an average mind: abstruse, deep, profound, recondite.
1) No God-moding. (ie. Do not control what another character will do or say. Stick to your own character.)
2) Anything goes in this RP; Shounen-ai, yaoi, yuri, het. Anything rated NC-17 should be under an lj-cut, or acted out in the comments.
3) When posting, use proper spelling and proper english. Make sure your posts are made in Third Person Past Tense and contain a fair amount of words.
4) Post must be made at least once a week, more if possible. Remember that without people to post, the game can't move on.
5) If you're stuck and don't know what to do, or need help RPing, feel free to ask me and I'll do what I can.
6) Be nice to the others while Out Of Character (OOC). While In Character (IC), you can act the way you see fit. Just don't go over the top and kill someone. You need OOC permission to do anything forceful (ie. kill, rape, kidnap.) before you can attempt it. Of course, anything like throwing a punch is allowed. Real life's a bitch.
7) OOC comments MUST be placed at the bottom of your IC text, if you have any. Do not interrupt the middle of a sentence with OOC comments in word (bubbles).
8) Characters who havent met yet, MUST meet sometime in the game. One of the points of this RP is to create relationships between the characters. Love, hate, despise, friendship, whatever! We need this to carry on. You don't have to interact with each other all the time, but your characters have to run into each other sometimes.
