Going On Right Now
>> CS will be closing down for a few months.

>> In that time, canon and world lore will be reworked and rewritten.

>> Current Leaders will be invited to have input on the writing and plot evolution of their groups.

>> Individuals remaining on CS and returning when it reopens will also be given a gift for their patience.

My name is Seven and I have been role playing for a hell of a long time. 15 years, I think, though the count is always going up. I usually only have a handful of characters in play but I am a sucker for big, juicy, dramatic plots and if you need some help kick-starting a character I may even be willing to make you someone to play with and help that along. My characters range from sweethearts to sadists, so whatever your needs I likely have you covered. Questions, comments, or concerns? Feel free to message me on IMs or U2Us and I will get back to you ASAP, I'm happy to help you with whatever you need.

Hello! My name is Courtney but I often go by Court. I like in Sunny Florida! I'm 26 and play a bunch of characters! I started Cerulean Sins a little over a Year ago and have been rping for a longer than I'm willing to admit. My first Forum RPG was an Anita Blake one and I just stuck with it. I am always around to answer questions when I'm awake and love to hear ideas and bounce plots so don't hesitate to contact me!

Hey guys! First, welcome to CS! I go by Veronica in the cbox below, and I play a bunch of characters. I'm always open to plot some more, new players and existing players alike. If you have any questions or issues or suggestions, feel free to contact me at anytime! I also manage the code portion of the forum and the entire network of sites - if you have suggestions for that as well, let me know! See you around :)

Greetings and Salutations! My name is Shay. I have been roleplaying for over ten years and been parts of various site staffs for more than 6 years. I am on most every evening, Eastern time. Feel free to contact me via messengers or U2U if you ever have any questions, concerns, or ideas. I’m always up for new plots. I’m a teacher by trade, so I’m usually pretty good about explaining things.

Greetings mortals! My name is Theo. I'm a divergent godling of vaugely greco-roman heritage responsible for the overseeing of all things RP in this age. As such I've been RPing for a great many years, and have been on the staff of more sites than can easily be counted. I'm perfectly approachable by u2u, messenger, or prayer and you can feel free to talk to me about anything, or nothing in particular if that's what you want. I'm always up for new plots and new partners so send me a message and let's play.
 
 
Board Rules
Writers

• You Must be 18 years old or older to join this forum. This means we are all adults. As such, drama is not tolerated.

• Harassment, Clique Behavior, Unsportsmanlike conduct, and taking IC drama to OOC will be dealt with in a timely manner. Those engaging in such activities may be banned.

• Please feel free to message staff with any questions or problems. Follow up with a different staff member if you haven't seen improvement/change.

• Cerulean Sins is an Advanced writing site. All In Character posts must be held in third person limited point of view in past tense and unless otherwise specified and must be 300+ words long. If you aren't sure if your paragraphs contain enough content, contact staff for their opinion. The staff may approach you if there are concerns, please don't be offended; we are here to help.

• God Moding and power play is strictly forbidden. In regards to fights we do have an Arena area with rules pertaining to how fights will be handled in character. All the details to a fight will be agreed to before it begins.


Characters

-- Overall
• Cerulean Sins does not allow for the creation of cannon characters, though it heavily encourages cannon behavior. If you have not read the books, the staff and other members would be happy to assist you in this.

• New accounts should be created with the name of your character in this format: "First Last". Any accounts not named as such will be renamed by staff when your character is approved. Renaming does not change your password, just your username. Each character must be on on it's own account.

• In relation to the above, Out of Character knowledge is not In Character knowledge. If we catch you abusing OOC knowledge, there will be consequences.

• Members may not modify bios after they have been approved. However, you can post in the bio updates thread if there's something you want us to update for you, for example gaining a new level, personality changes, history updates, etc.

• Please Label any thread with mature content as either SC (Sexual Content), GV (Graphic Violence), or the more general AC (Adult Content). Label a thread Open if you are okay with anyone joining, otherwise label the thread Closed or with specific character names. Not labelling a thread as any status means a thread is open and does not contain any adult content.

• Leaders can enter any thread with a character of their species, whether marked Open or not, unless there is no logical IC reason for it. Similarly, characters that own/claim a territory in game can enter threads in that area, whether marked Open or not. Please contact Staff for any issues.

• Any character can challenge to be a leader (or start an official group), even new characters, without prerequisites. However, the moment that the position is earned/taken IC, leader responsibilities will be expected, as well as leader activity requirements.


-- Creation
• Please check the Needed/Banned list.

• You have two weeks from the time the bio is posted to the time it must be completed. Unless you have spoken with staff about this previously, the WIP will be moved to archives after this point.

• All writers must post in the Character Directory, The Rep List, and The Who’s Who before an app will be approved.

• Every existing character that you own must be active in at least 3 (non-AC) threads AND meet their activity requirements before another character will be considered. If the staff believes that you are not active enough, they will decline your application.

• Cerulean Sins has a character ratio of 1 Alpha and 1 Beta (or 0 Alpha and 2 Beta), to every 2 Omega characters. This 1:1:2 ratio means that for every Alpha or Beta you have, you should also have one omega character. Please be aware, more omega characters are fine and even encouraged!

• Also, Cerulean Sins has a character type ratio of 1 Minor or Misc Species to every 3 Major Species. This 1:3 ratio means that if you want to create a minor or misc species, you must then also balance it out with 3 major species characters before making another minor species.


• Every new player coming to Cerulean Sins can have ONE free Alpha OR Beta character to start the game. They must be regular entry level. After which point, any character starting or becoming an Alpha will be weighed with your activity, contributions to the site and character roster to meet our character ratio of 1:1:2.

• A character can be created starting at a higher level than the regular entry level for their power. Please refer to the levels thread to see where the maximum direct entry level is. Doing this will cause your character to be in debt for the points cost that they have skipped ahead. You can not create anything but entry level omegas (and maybe Beta pending your ratio and debt - ask the staff) while in debt, nor can you buy any power levels for any characters (pay off the debt first!). Your first character can not be an Alpha level "direct entry" character.

-- Activity Level
• A thread which has not been posted to in over one month is considered inactive and will be moved to the archives.

• A character of a capped/banned type must have 1 IC post each week. (For example, an alpha wolf if those are banned, or a black tiger if those are banned, etc.) Otherwise, each character must have 1 IC post each 2 weeks. All leader characters and leader contenders must have 1 IC post each week regardless. Failure to meet these activity requirements can lead to loss of position or character altogether.

• If you are going to be away for any period of time that risk you not meeting the activity requirements, please put up an LOA. It helps your fellow writers and will allow the staff to know that you have not left the site.

• Inactive/Static: A character that has not been posted with in more than a month will become static. A static character has lost all rank and privilege, and after a month in static they will be archived and the rep used for the character will be free for another to pick up. These characters will be written out as the staff sees fit unless otherwise stated. This also counts for those who leave the site without leaving instructions as to how their character left.


Graphics

• Please keep your graphics free of nudity or excessive gore. If they are deemed inappropriate, they will be taken down.

• Avatars must be 150x200 or less.

• Signatures must be 500x200 or less.

• Pictures in threads must be 500x400 or less.

• If any graphic does not follow these rules, they will be removed and you will receive a PM or resized for you if the Staff has time.


Cbox

• The No Drama Rule carries over to the Cbox. If you have a disagreement with another member, please take it to U2Us or instant messengers. Flaming, Verbal Abuse, or Threatening behavior of any kind towards other members is not allowed

• As this is a public Cbox, complaining is not allowed in the Cbox. Please message staff if there is a problem that you need assistance with.

• Please be considerate of the topics you are discussing. Not everything is appropriate for the cbox. If the conversation seems to be detrimental to a healthy environment, the staff will moderate as they see fit.

• No Advertising in the Cbox! We have an advertising area Here.

• No extended IC chatting in the Cbox. A few back and forth sentences are fine, however if it becomes more you will be asked to take it elsewhere.

• Broken Rules may result in banning from the Cbox or even Cerulean Sins all together!
