⎛OOC Thread⎠ Spoiler: Advertisement [/url]✏ You are either a high school student at Riverton High, taking extra credit classes to get into a good art program after you graduate; a college student at Riverton University, taking credits as a teacher's aid this semester and helping out Professor Lotvig; or a work of art created by one of the artists, living in your own magical world. ✏ Everyone will receive a package in the mail, containing a beautiful looking paintbrush. Something about it calls to you, even if you are not a painter. It seems like everything you create with it, has a life of its own and always comes out perfect. What you don't know, is that it really does create life. ✏ The art program has been going on for a couple weeks already. ✏ I will message everyone individually as to when their paintbrush comes. At that point in time, you may post saying that you received it. [/url]✏ The artwork won't come to life immediately, but don't worry you wonderful works of art, you have not been forgotten about. ✏ The magical world that the painting creations live in is vast and beautiful. You may interact with other works of art in your world, but you best be back in your frame by the time your owner gets home. ✏ Not every work of art will be in the home of its artist. They could be sold to shops, owned by friends, stored away in a closet somewhere, etc. That is for you to decide. Note: not everyone will have a work of art that is actually bought and sold. This will mostly just be for artwork created by the college students. The high schoolers will most likely have their pieces at home or given to a friend or something along those lines. [/url]✏ If you have a question just ask, but if it is already answered somewhere else, prepare to be kicked to the top of my annoyance list. I'm not a fan of redundancy. So I don't like to explain the same thing over and over again. READ THOROUGHLY. ✏ Please do not join if you won't be consistently active. ✏ Be willing to collaborate. ✏ There is no killing in this RP. Don't injure someone without good cause, and it must be discussed with me first. It better be a really good reason, because this RP is meant to be cute and happy. ✏ Pairs: Creator/Creation [ Can have more than one artwork per artist ]✏ Feel free to join with someone! If you're making a character that is a work of art and your friend is creating an artist, you can put each others names in your CS immediately.✏ If you can't choose what work of art you want as an artist, or what artist you want as a work of art, then I will match you up. ✏ Ages: 14 - 22 Should be pretty self - explanitory. High school students ages 14 - 18. College students ages 18 - 22.✏ Only nine character slots open for artists. [ 6 high schoolers and 3 Teaching Aids ] Unlimited slots for artwork [/url]✏ This is a present day, modern world, RP ✏ No one has super powers or is magical or anything of the like. It is all in the paintbrush and it can only do two things: bring art to life/restore it to its natural state and create entrances within the artwork. ✏ This only works on pieces that already have doors in them. ✏ No one is a perfect artist, that is why it is an extra credit class. They all have things they can learn to become better at their craft. ✏ While they may specialize in one specific field, they will have to branch out and occasionally work on projects in the other departments.✏ One day in the RP is equal to four IRL days.✏ The most important days will be the ones that they are at their class -- Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays✏ Posting on the other days will be more laid back. You will only be required to post at least once in those four IRL days for Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, & Sundays.✏ Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays have a requirement of posting every three days [ so at least twice for that day ]. ✏ I understand that things come up. Just talk to me and we can work something out. I am a very lenient person, so I am willing to make exceptions depending on your reason, but if I know you have the ability to be posting and just blatantly choose not to, I won't be so nice.✏ I won't hound anyone or remind them, but once you reach three strikes you are out, no exceptions.✏ This is meant to be a very calm, dramatica - free, happy cute RP.✏ It will be broken into at least two arcs. The first will be where the artworks come to life, and the second is when the artists wind up in the magical world of paintings. If things go well and I come up with more to add to the story, then I may continue it from that point in time. We'll see. . . [/url]✏ This is an Advanced RP, so that means a minimum of three paragraphs per post. I can understand the occasional short post if you are just responding to someone, but since there won't be any quick - paced dire urgency to post, there should be no reason as to why you can't make the requirement. If you are consistently posting less than three paragraphs, I will message you. There will only be one warning to ask you to increase your paragraphs per post. If you fail to do as you're asked, I will ask you to leave. ✏ Days end midnight my time, which is Central Standard Time. + 1 hour for EST ( 1 AM ), - 1 hour for MT ( 11 PM ), and - 2 hours for PST ( 10 PM ). If you live outside of North or South America and need help figuring out the time zone differences, let me know.✏ This means promptly at midnight. Any posts made after that will be disregarded. ✏ I have no problem with language, violence ( there really shouldn't be too much excessive violence in this RP, however ), romance, but it has to be appropriate and well written. No Smut! Don't be tacky or abusive of the privilege. I will revoke the right if you cannot handle it. It does still have to follow forum rules. You may get a strike if you can't be appropriate.✏ I shouldn't have to say this, but since not everyone seems to get it: No God - modding. It should be a given, but clearly is not always the case. You are only allowed to control a character belonging to someone else if they have give you permission -- I should be notified of this before hand -- and it should not be a frequent thing.✏ No bios. I hate bios. They are dumb and an utter waste of time. I don't want to know every detail of your character's past. You should show me it in the story -- introduce depth.✏ No Mary-Sue's -- need not say more. . .✏ You may have as many characters as you would like, but that only applies to the Artwork. If you wish to have an Artist, you can only have one. As mentioned before, there are only 9 character slots available for the artists and I want to give everyone a fair chance at picking one. If the RP starts and there is still a slot or two available, then I will open it up to whomever wants it. First come, first serve. The Artwork slots are unlimited, so long as you can properly handle the number of characters you posses.✏ I possess the ability to change the rules should I deem fit. If such a thing happens, I will say something in the OOC Thread.✏ READ THE OOC THREAD!!
