Getting Started

  • Then register first name, middle initial, last name in all caps for your character. For example, THOMAS W. HIDDLESTON.
  • When posting an application, please make the subject title 'Last, First M.' and the topic description 'Codename'.
  • You may join as a canon character, or as a completely original creation.
  • After your first character is accepted, register an OOC account. Then, post your organizer in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Database forum. If you need help, ask a staff member or board member and we'll walk you through it!

  • Roleplaying/Activity

  • The site is rated R, and open to 18 and older only. No characters under 16. Any thread that goes into extreme violence, language, etc., please tag with an [M].
  • The board operates under an open plotting system. All threads are open to anyone, within the bounds of common sense.
  • Discuss the details with your posting partner/partners if you want to control other characters. Give all characters a chance to react.
  • Post a quick absence if you're going to be gone so we can put you on the hiatus list.
  • Accounts checks will happen every so often. If you are not posting as per IC guidelines (one post a month for all canons and original characters), you will be archived.
  • In group threads with an established posting order: there is a four day grace period for your character. If a post is not up, then the next person in line can post (so the thread doesn't stagnate).
  • If you request an NPC S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to show in your threads, he/she has the right to arrest your character if your character does not have his/her card linked in his/her signature.
  • There is a fifteen IC post limit for characters before you are able to create another one. You can have as many as you want, as long as they are all active!

  • Odds and Ends

  • Graphics: make sure that your avs are 250x400. You must have one and a gif in your mini profile. If you need one made for you, pelase request it of one of the other members.
  • Writing Level: There is no word count and we are open to all writing levels.
  • Conflict resolutions: IC drama needs to be handled between characters. OOC drama and other board drama, the staff will step in if necessary.
  • NPCs: If a canon is not being played right now by a player on board, and you need to use a canon for NPCing purposes in a thread, by all means, do so, to help out with a plot you may have. The only thing you will not be allowed to do to characters is kill them. You can make an NPC account without an application -- just pm the admin and they will make them an NPC. What constitutes an NPC? A character who is only going to be used for a short period of time in order to move a plot along OR a character having to do with a temporary board plot. If this character is staying, you gotta app 'em.
