>:OOC Thread:<~Family Thread: Crossover Crib~ Welcome everyone to Crossover Cove, the Role-Play of unlimited potential and possibility. First I'd like to point anyone who hasn't signed up to the sign up thread, there you can enter with whatever character you'd like from any medium you can think of. Almost all characters are accepted, so don't worry about confirmation from me unless you're unsure. For those looking for a taste of what you can expect, take a look here: Spoiler: Crossover Cove AMV Also check out our very own Tumblr and Wiki, courtesy of Aerith G. and Ventus. Now the initial plan had me grouping people together, that changed rather quickly. If you're trying to enter the RP and don't know where to enter at, simply look in OOC thread and ask for some guidance, or read up through the story and burst through a wall somewhere. Below is the orginal story that got this Role-Play off the ground, a first of hopefully many Arcs. The land is barren, so few are the number of trees or green substance you'd likely call it a desert. This land wasn't always like this, no, it used to be a thriving savannah inhabited by countless animals and plants. All that changed when the Lion King of the land was murdered by his conniving brother, Scar, whom then assumed control of the Pride Lands. It was after this that the circle of life was broken, Scar's army of hyenas drove off the inhabitants and next to nothing was left, but a large stone fortress known as Pride Rock. In there Scar was plotting, "This land isn't suited for a king of my stature...there is no use in ruling over an empty kingdom. What must I do to grow my empire? I'm the rightful king of this land, no..all the land!" as Scar was ranting to himself he failed to notice the appearance of tall slender being in the corner. "Pardon, but you seem to be troubled.", the figure made it's presence known to Scar who immediately growled at the intruder. "Who...who are you? Have you come to challenge me?...You're..-" Scar was stopped by the being, "One hell of a butler." ~ "Soon the emptiness will shatter your heart, here in this world of nothingness." A fortress, a prison, a lair, Castle Oblivion among other names is an ideal place to plan a coup d'Ã©tat, but now serves as the headquarters for a more widespread goal. Marluxia is Lord of this Castle, thought to have been killed in the struggle that occurred on these grounds years ago, but although drained he is very much alive. To gain a heart is the only real goal a nobody can aspire towards, but thanks to a young boy that goal was shattered to pieces. To gain a heart, hearts must be sacrificed. For someone without a heart that can't be too hard of moral dilemma, but finding those to follow him into battle will be Marluxia's greatest undertaking. His old allies are wiped out so the Lord of the Castle must give rise to a new alliance, a new kingdom, a new Kingdom Hearts. ~ High above the mountains into a sea of clouds a wise figure watches the ongoing struggles of the world, you'd say he looked blue if he weren't green. Jedi Master Yoda, former leader of the Jedi council has taken the responsibility of watching over Earth, he hopes to train an able group of heros to keep the balance of the force in check. Of course he's troubled, for if an order is needed to protect the well being of this planet, that means there must be a great evil present within it. Yoda has sensed the presence of individuals who intend to do great evil in this world, that is why he has based a new Jedi order in Cloud City, for those who are willing will come. ~ The power of a God, decide who lives...and who dies. That is the power of the Death Note, power such a this will make you a stranger to Heaven and an outcast of Hell. Light Yagami has taken a step towards what he aspires to be, a God, by wielding this power. Who among you will follow him? To cleanse something completely the dirt must be obliterated, but can you really destroy the darkness in all hearts? Rule Number 1: No godmodding, this is especially important because of the many different mediums we've got characters from. Obviously some characters hold more influence in the world, but don't go overboard with anything. If you're thinking of killing someone off don't do it without the controllers consent(or them choosing to have their character killed off). This rule is smashed to absolute dust by Bushy, but that's okay because he's a god/genie/little girl summoner. Rule Number 2: Along with godmodding, please refrain from controlling other characters, influencing something that isn't yours to decide isn't fair to the controller of the character you're tampering with. Simply ask before you go leroy jenkins up in here. This rule can be excepted if the character's controller gives you the right to control their character for a moment, or for minor plot convinces. Rule Number 3: Try to keep the language PG-13, some of the characters are more prone to cuss which I understand, just don't go overboard. Rule Number 4: If you plan on using a vehicle of any kind, think about posting a picture of the plane/ship/car/bike etc. so that we know what we're dealing with. Along with that pictures and music selections are also allowed, just don't go overboard. Rule Number 5: To quote the rules of the RP section: "There is a 20-word minimum for all posts in this section, so kindly think before you post." I want to see good posts out of everyone, we don't need books and I can understand the occasional short post, but generally put you're heart into it. That's all I ask. Rule Number 6: I shouldn't have to make this a rule, because you should all be mature enough to not insult or otherwise offend others of their beliefs or way of life. But, if you do insult or make a comment deemed offensive by the KH-Vids rules or the Crossover Cove staff, there will be consequences. First offenders will be banned from the RP for one day. Repeat offenders will be banned from Crossover Cove for good. Plus, depending on the severity of the situation I will get KH-Vds staff involved. Rule Number 7: Musical Numbers. Don't we love them? In fact it was I who came up with the nifty idea to start bringing musical numbers into the RP, don't regret that decision one bit. Seriously though, there is a time and place for them. If you're role-playing as Scar and want to sing Be Prepared at some point, it makes perfect sense. If you're role-playing as Winnie the Pooh and want to sing Billie Jean, no. Mostly cause only I can RP as Winnie the Pooh because it be awesome, but also because it's not the least bit in character. Think before you sing. If it doesn't make sense or there has just been a musical number, don't do it, or at least ask DT or I. The Bushy Rule: Common sense. "If you think about things when posting, and give other people a chance to post like people do in other RPs. Everything would be fine. It doesn't have to go super slow then, but if you know other people are going to NEED to post and your own posting or other peoples are getting out of hand, then just stop and wait for a bit. If everyone has some courtesy for everyone else, things will go a lot smoother. We all have brains in our skulls. We all have common sense. It shouldn't be too hard as long as that when we post, we consider everyone and how our post will impact them. Remember, posting on your own and for yourself is stupid, you may as well write a story on your own and be done with it(and as a aspiring writer, I of all people am saying this). The point of an RP, is to work and create a story with others. It's impossible to do such a thing if you don't give everyone else a chance. The RP section is a community where we as RPers work together for everyone involved. The same should be said for the RPs in the section itself." ~Bushy Brow If there are any more rules that need addressing, simply ask and I'll see what I can do.
