Rule of Many 1: Any character with a username may not title themselves the sole all-encompassing master of a governing aspect a concept.
A-- Birth: Characters born from personal creations/deities/patron saints, may hail from the primordial source and eventually become Gods themselves; but, under the circumstance of present ideas, they should not assume any absolute power or favoritisms therein under their own established concepts.

.B--Power: Character may not acquire ‘objects’ comprised of the Omni source. Beginning and end, both known and unknown.

C—Titles: Titles can suggest adept-mastery over a particular domain, but not assume favoritism and sole authority.

1.3 Forum Conduct

Vescrutia is a communal turn based role playable universe where your decisions scope the world around you. It is imperative and absolutely necessary to behave by the parameters we set in in the RP, and the limits you set upon yourself.

The Honor System is designed so people can have creative control over their story, and sovereignty over how their character interacts with the environment and its people, within the given guidelines. It is a system that relies solely on the honesty of those concerned. If this is taken for granted, then your character cannot exist on Vescrutia.

-The Honor System allows people to roleplay their character how they want to in whatever fashion they deem fitting.

-The Honor System trusts that every Vescrutian is Roleplaying within their characters limits, and uplifts the moral and ethical codes of common sense to ensure a positive roleplaying environment.

-Mastery Sheets, Exclusive Technques, Equipment, as well as ability sheets from other village’s specific perks are all tools that enforce the Honor System. With them, our characters powers are outlined in a clear format and we Roleplay within the guidelines that we have been approved by.

-Our Ranks ensure that we can interact with other players fairly. And value other member's time, and dedication on the site.

Initiate
Recruit
Acolyte
Zealot
Catalyst
Diviner

Is the hierarchy to Diviner being the End Goal. Each village also has specific requirements of those who hold those ranks, so please dedicate yourself wisely and respectfully.

-The ranking system implies responsibility, power level, sometimes status (if given proper story elements) and length of membership. This does not imply OOC Superiority over another. It is encouraged that people of all ranks engage one another in the RP in any way possible but do recall one of our basic principles: As you progress through your story it's more than likely you will obtain more power, and with it a higher rank, so please respect the ranks of those above and more importantly below you, treat everyone with respect that you would require of yourself as an important member of Vescrutia.
-We will Address how you can increase your rank further on in the rules.

Respectful Post: Characters should not ‘include’ themselves in threads not prior agreed upon. PM the Author of the thread first.

God Mod:
A--The God Hack... The Unprecedented absolute victory that goes outside one's power range.
B--The Mod…The acquiring of knowledge, skill, territory and power that Is comprised of the all there is and all to be.

Metagaming
-The refusal to stipulate information gathered out and in the RP.
-The unprecedented acquiring of information about one's techniques, background, abilities, and the like without obtaining such through legitimate means in the RP.

Vagary Clause: Descriptions in post, both in character creations and interaction should have sufficient evidence to justify claims and actions from the reader's’ perspective, not solely the writer.
---- Auto Hit: Where a character in or out of combat performs an action in which the target's result is already iterated in the same post resulting in unavoidable damage.
----Before post: Never make a ‘Before you did this post.’ If you feel that your character had sufficient reason to ‘avoid,’ a technique prior to its initiation, discuss with the rp’r first or seek the counsel of an admin.

Given the turn based nature of our roleplay, you should almost never be in a position to pull one of these distasteful impolite moves. It’s also highly frowned upon and is perceived as you unwillingness to collude story ideas.



1.4 Progression

Updating Character Sheet Info
-While it's not mandatory to update character information, the honor system indicates that you will update your character when you can, to allow the admin knowledge of what your character is capable of and how you affect Vescrutia.

Patch Notes


The Rule of Many 1 applies to unique forms of energy created by characters.

An 'Honorable Discharge' is when you achieve the rank of Acoylte, defect, but depart from your faction in good standing. Honorably discharging from a faction has unique perks, PM your community leaders to figure out what those are.

There are unique ways to leave a faction without achieving the rank of acolyte, but will more than likely result in a dishonorable discharge.

Edited words on character sheets to distinguish Vescrutia further.

Kekkei Genkai changed to Unique Trait
Village changed to Faction
And added the addition of 'Myself' for all you Lone Guns out there who dont run with a faction.

I deleted Magus Art, Soul Reap and Soul Count... Unique forms of magic are unique traits. And in the spirit of reapplying witches and weapons, we are ditching their former way of ranking up.
