  • Rules of Drift

    Basic Rules

    1. No desperatism, no god-modding, and no powerplaying without the permission of the other character’s player. We ask that you also do not have your own characters be mates with one another.
    2. No metagaming. You cannot use out of character information in-character. Basically, just because you as the player know something, it does not mean that your character will know it IC.
    3. Literacy is required. This means proper grammar, writing out numbers, correct spelling, and quality content. We require all in-character posts to be at least three hundred (200) words or longer.
    4. Please do not post in-character until a staff member has accepted your character biography.


    Rating Rules

    1. Drift does not restrict content to any particular rating level. We do adapt to the RPG Rating System to forum content in order to allow members to filter their preferred content level. Please see rpgrating.com for further explanation.
    2. Any thread that exceeds a 2 on the scale for any facet of the scale requires a warning on the thread in order to advise others of the content. Please use the appropriate warning on your thread as some members are not comfortable with explicit, mature, adult, or graphic content.
    3. Threads including strong sexual content should include the [explicit] tag. Excessive violence should be tagged with [graphic]. Language should be used at the writer’s discretion. If a thread adheres to one or more of these tags, please just label the thread with a general [mature] tag.


    Out of Character Rules

    1. Please note that the Administrators of Drift reserve the right to terminate membership for any reason without warning. In addition to this rule, we request that our members avoid integrating off-site drama and controversy into our role-playing community.
    2. Please treat the Discord with respect. We reserve the right to ban any members for any reason. This is a privilege and the Administrators do not have to justify why a ban has occurred.
    3. Drift is not a dating site or social media site. Please do not share your personal information with anyone, and do not ask for personal information from anyone. Do not share your passwords or account information.


    Account Guidelines

    1. Your first account should be your Out of Character Account. This account will be for plotting pages, private messages, graphic threads, requests, and more! Please post ALL non-IC posts with this account. There are separate fields for these accounts so that you can indicate what types of plots or characters you are willing to participate in with others. Please only use these fields on your out of character account and reserve the character fields for your in-character accounts.


    Time Guidelines

    1. Drift uses liquid time. This means that your character can be in multiple threads at once, but we do require that they have a general timeline that makes sense. Ideally they take place in a linear form that has a beginning and an ultimate end. However, within the use of liquid time on Drift, you will be expected to be reasonable with the travel times and locations of your threads.
    2. Offspring will age based on their species. See Acceptable Species for more information.


    Breeding Rules

    1. Group leaders will be allowed to create their own pack-specific breeding requirements. Within a pack, your character must adhere to these rules or face the consequences laid out by group leadership.
    2. Forced breeding is allowed. However, it must be discussed out of character between the two users beforehand and consented to OOC.
    3. All litters will be rolled by a staff member to determine how many offspring there will be and what traits they will inherit.
    4. There are no set rules to assigning adopters to offspring. The role-players of the parent characters have sole discretion on how these offspring are adopted and who adopts them.
    5. Each character involved in a mating thread must have a minimum of 20 IC posts in order to conceive offspring.
    6. Biographies for offspring must be posted before midnight on the night before they become playable. Any character without a biography at this time will be considered deceased. Parents of offspring may place a biography in the adoptables board and consider the character still up for adoption before this deadline if necessary.
