Update to add a new rule. How long you have to post your application, since so many people register and then don't do anything.
 Before starting, please make sure to check out all threads in these sections of the board - Carry On
Please note - The Story So Far functions as the plot in that, this is the beginning of the story and it is up to the players to complete it. While there are some plot ideas that will be revealed in time, there is no set plot of sequenced events. Wayward Sons is an open-ended RPG (meaning that there is no ending set up) that is not dependent on a plot, but on the players acting within it. Since we've noticed a LOT of people registering then taking a very long time to post their application or not posting one at all, we've decided to have a time on how long you have to post your application. From the day you register you have one week to post your application. That is plenty of time to figure out enough about you're character to get an application up. If you don't get one posted within that time period, the account will be deleted.
 No powerplaying. Unless you have the other person's consent. Don't know what that is?
Example: Dean punched Alec in the face. Alec fell to the ground from the force of it.
That's power-playing. You can't make another character, who isn't yours, do something without their consent. Also, if you get a players consent to power-play one of their characters, post an OOC bit at the top of your posts to let the Admins know that it's okay you have permission.
 When registering your character's name, please be sure to register a first and last name, (if your character is a Canon and you do not know their last name, contact an Admin). Please don't use joint accounts or create names not pertaining to your character. It can become confusing. If you want to create more than one character, that is fine. Just remember to keep them all active or else you will lose the one that is inactive. Limit to 5 characters per person. Also, you much register as each character. You can't post as Sam Winchester when your name is Max Guevara.
 At this time, we're only allowing members to have two Canons at this time. This is to allow more people who want to join have a chance to play a Canon as well. Choose wisely! Also, please remember you are allowed to have up to five characters, read the rest of the rules for further information.
Also, we are only accepting 'special' types as seen on Dark Angel (i.e Transgenics, Familiars and Red Series) and those species / gifted people as seen on Supernatural.
Note: Other supernatural kinds not yet seen on the series, may fit into the premise of the board, dependent on what you wish to play. Please PM an Admin for advice on this.
 Posting is a minimum of 5 sentences. Please don't post one liners. Give it some effort. That's all we ask.
 Unless other circumstances arise, members must post once a week on each active account that they have.
Note: Because muses sometimes like to hide from us, we do understand. If you let us know and at least try to post that character, we will work something out so that you don't lose your character.
 This board's rating is set at PG-13
. Sex is still allowed, however
, there is a password protected forum to post anything that goes beyond PG-13. Because there will be younger players on the board or players who do not wish to read these kinds of threads, you must PM an Admin if a thread turns in that direction to move the thread and get the password. You can also ask for the password if you know a thread will turn out that way before you start working on it. You must be at least 18 years old to get the password to post there. If it gets found out that you are underage, you will be warned and blocked from this section of the board. If you do not want to move the thread, simply 'fade to black' or ignore the scene completely. Also, no NC-17 threads will be accepted and if any are found, they will be deleted on discovery and all parties will be warned. If it happens again, you will be suspended. Third time, banned.
 Hitting, punching, kicking, or any forms of violence are okay provided that it is required by your storyline and is just minimal. No killing another character without their permission and no details that are overly gory.
 If you have a storyline for a certain character that does not belong to you, please, let the person who is RPing as that character know, so they won't be left in the dark. And please remember, the person that does own the other character has to be okay with your idea for their character. Without their permission, this would be considered another form of power-playing.
 If you come to have any problems with someone on the board, take it up with an Admin. With varying opinions and beliefs, conflicts are bound to flare up. Do not blow these out of proportion. Respect your peers. No bashing or vulgarities are necessary. We want to keep this place safe and fun for everyone. So, we reiterate: if you have a problem with someone else or something occurring on the board, take it up with one of the Admins and it will be reviewed and handled accordingly. Also keep it private. Do not post about it or have conversations about the situation on the open forum or
 Cursing and swearing happens. With the lot of characters we have and with new ones being introduced, you never know what kind of personality will pop in. If you MUST swear, keep it to a minimum. Every other word doesn't need to be an expletive. Use some common sense and judgment in this regard. You may also use the asterisk (*) to block out letters and make the word less visually offensive. If you are found using excessive expletives, you will be warned. If it continues, further action will be taken by the Admins. Just use your best judgment. It's an easy call.
 Signatures (siggies or banners) are to be no bigger then 500w x 200h. This includes avatars that are put in the signature as well.
 After much thought, it has been decided to take away the No Slash
rule. However, there will be some rules governing Slash.
[A] There will be no Wincest or Incest of any kind on the board. It is gross for family members to hook up that way. So if you are blood related, do not have relations with each other.
[B] Remember this board is PG-13, the same rules for guy/girl relationships apply to guy/guy or girl/girl relationship. If it goes beyond PG-13, get the password for the rated section and have the thread moved or fade to black.
[C] Do not create a character that is attracted to others of the same gender as themselves just for harassment reasons. Such as you having a problem with homosexuality/bisexuality and this being your way to hate or punish someone who is. However, if there is a plausible storyline that you have in mind, contact an Admin to check to see if the storyline would be alright on the board. Remember, this is supposed to be a fun place for everyone.
 As in real life, people on RP boards also get pregnant. However, we don't want the board populated with a whole bunch of babies. If you want your character to be pregnant, then contact an Admin before you make your character pregnant. Also with pregnancies, current story lines may be altered, so make sure that you talk to everyone who might be involved with this baby to make sure they are okay with the idea. If they aren't, please respect their wishes, they might not want their character to have a baby or be the father of a baby at the moment. If you still want to have your character pregnant, contact an Admin to discuss it further and we will see if there is a way to suit both parties.
 It has been decided to not allow Transgenics nor Familiars to be able to be possessed by Demons. After much thought on the ideas of either group being possessed, it didn't make much sense to the plot of the board. Please read the FAQ
for more info on the decision.
 To make sure we know that you read the rules, at the end of the application answer the question with this: There will be peace when you are done.
 Have fun. That's the point of this, after all.
Okay! Do you have everything? Good
. Run along and play. Oh also, if you have any questions feel free to PM one of the Admins. We are here to help.
