Modern Slice of Life


Welcome to our Slice of Life RP in set in SOL CITY, very roughly based on Seattle, the Northwestern US Coast and Canada

If you enjoy Slice of Life and want a COMMITTED and PROVEN to last roleplay, then this is the game you have been looking for. We have a vested group of players and GM staff that genuinely enjoy the genre that would love to welcome you into the world we have created. We have plans for continued regular events and for an over-arching plot line that will allow players freedom to grow and expand with us and our fun environment. You will find that this game is unlike any other that you have encountered here on the Guild and that is why we think it is special.

Players here are encouraged to suggest an idea or submit a new location for our MAP. We invite players to add to the world their own ideas and concepts so that we continually expand. We were so fortunate in our FIRST & SECOND CHAPTERS to capture enough hearts and imaginations that we are setting off on a third journey for CHAPTER THREE which will be the best one yet learning from what worked well in over 1000 posts of Slice of Life role play.

Fear not! You needn’t read a single page of CHAPTER ONE OR TWO to freely participate in this current game. However, if you would like, the link to our first and second games can be found HERE and HERE. You will find that both were planned out and completed successfully and wrapped up neatly with a bow.

S O L C I T Y C H A P T E R T H R E E

SOL CITY is the largest city in the Northwestern US in our fictitious universe, taking the place of Seattle, the surrounding geography and even parts of British Columbia. Bright light and shining Sol City gained its name from being a beacon to early travelers and to this day, still draws the young and adventurous alike.

So explore enjoy, start anew and make your mark. The city awaits…




The Rules

Not scary don't worry


RULES

1. Observe standard RPing rules. No godmoding, no-metagaming, stay in character, and stay within the storyline. If you want to make any major changes to the story, ask us first. Be polite to the other members. You know the drill.

2. Write in third person, past tense. Try to make your writing coherent and legible. Although there's no official word requirement, avoid one-liners when possible.
2b. Move the plot when you post! This is a “slice-of-life” RP, but please try and focus on forwarding the story with every post you make. We don’t want every other post here to be your characters leisurely having tea or monotonously deciding on what clothes to wear. We have a very dynamic world here that you can use to develop your characters.
2c. Interacting solely with your own NPC or secondary PC is not allowed. It's far more fun writing with someone than yourself for you and all the other players.

3. You are not your character. Your character is not you. Please don't be offended because someone else's character was mean to yours. Likewise, please do not carry real-life arguments into the RPG world. This applies to RPG Guild, Discord and any other platforms that may be used.

4. Primary character images need to be in an anime-style. Also no crossovers and no Mary/Gary Sue, please.

5. Try not to let anyone get left behind. If you and another person have posted back and forth several times, take a break and let the other players catch up. Of course, there may be times when only a few characters need to be involved in a particular scene; just don't get two days ahead of someone without giving them the chance to respond.

6. Stay active! Everyone gets busy from time to time, but if you’re going to be absent for a while just let us know. There’s no set amount of time allowed for before we start working around dormant players, but if you leave and stay gone without telling us, we’ll move on as we see fit and the plot will roll on without you. If you wish to come back after being naughty, we’ll talk.
6b. I'm waiting for the next skip!. This is rather unhelpful and it saps momentum from the game. If possible, ask in the OOC, Discord or PM and try not to just be stuck waiting for a time or event that suits your tastes, particularly when there are other players around who might enjoy writing with you. Of course we understand some situations do resolve faster than others, but the goal here is for maximum player interaction and FUN.

7. This game is rated PG-13+, so just about anything goes as far as language, violence, sex, etc. However, you will need to observe standard Guild rules should you feel that your posting is headed in this direction. Please read the Moderator posts concerning these topics.

8. Second characters are allowed. You have to be an active player and both male and female are allowed. You cannot RP with yourself, PERIOD. Please PM or Tag a GM or Co GM to confirm things if you have any questions regarding this and genders allowed at the time. WE WILL BE WATCHING THIS CLOSELY.
8b. Some characters may be "grandfathered-in" from Chapter One as the GMs see fit. Again, we will be watching this closely, particularly if you seem to post heavily with NPCs and not other players.

9. If you want to use our setting to carry on a 1x1 with another player, then we need to know about it. This is so other players don't waste time trying to pointlessly engage your characters. We are going to be very discerning in allowing this and if you and another player appear to be pursuing this route without letting the staff and other players know, both will be kindly asked to leave.

10. Obviously this isn’t going to cover everything, so the GM and Co-GM’s reserve the right to make decisions as situations arise.

In general the RP is using a permissive rule system, as long as events are not too likely to effect other players or alter the dynamics of the RP heavily. These actions do not require permission.

Events are rough backdrops and scenes and open to player interpretation within reason. If you are unsure about the application, PM a GM or Co GM to make sure, and consult with those player or players who may be effected before hand. If a secret or suprise action this is permissible via PM or discord etc.

This is to maximize creative options and make it open and easy to join and take part in RP.

Thank you for reading the rules! Hope you have fun RPing with us!

Current gender balance

13 male : 13 female

Please consider this when planning a new character.


CS Sheet


Name: (First & Last, middle if you like)
Age: (needs to be between 18-35)
Appearance: (anime-style picture please, you can also include a description if you like)
Height:
Weight:
Likes:
Dislikes:
Zodiac Sign: (His/Her personality doesn't have to be a perfect fit for their sign)
Special Talent: (Any particular thing your character is good at?)
Profession: (What you do and where you work)
Bio/Personality: (one paragraph minimum, more is fine) (If in chapter one/two, what were you doing)
Your character's favorite song: (We just think this would be interesting)
Actor or Actress/Public Figure who would play your Character in a movie (Optional, we just think it can better help get an idea of your Character)

(Reference images to plot elements, or for helping to describe a character are allowed. Please make these in hiders, real life, anime or drawn etc are allowed in this case.)

The following personal bio is not required (though CS Section 2 IS required), but we strongly encourage you to at least put a little something. In the past we have found that when players get to know each other as real people, not just as names on a screen, it helps the longevity of the game. Seriously, please get to know your fellow players.

Tell us about yourself:

*Your age:
*What part of the world are you from?
*How many years have you been writing/roleplaying: (if you're on your first year, that's totally fine too)
*How often do you have time to post? (this is just a general, honest question, no judgment)
*Anything else you want to mention? What you do for a living? How much do you work a week? What do you enjoy doing besides writing? Put as much as you want.

"These are the things that make a good story great and good writers even greater."

CS section 2 - Player Interaction Scale


Very Simple: Are you, as a PLAYER more a solo/small group poster or would you consider yourself a social butterfly open for anything?

Choose a number from 1-5 telling us where you would rate yourself in the above criteria. ONE being the least interactive and FIVE being the most.

There is no wrong answer so please be honest. It helps us as GM Staff work out the best way to support our players and plan events that will appeal to everyone.

Il try to give it a look before work starts but probbly be after as I have a bunch of things to do this morning first.

@LovelyBlackLights

Please can you post in OOC for approval in the future. Only approved sheets in the CS section to help us keep things orgonized. It's not a major issue but it really helps us keep track.

Also both you can you please just check CS part two. The Charceter interaction scale ans give us a 1-5 as a player how much you like to interact with other players. 5 being a social butterfly, 1 being more intersted in small groups to better help us plan events round our players preferences.

We are trying to tailor the RP best to players and the information really helps us gauge the best events possible and plot lines and directions to use.

Aye there is. We will sort it out about time we launch the IC.

It's set up, and ready to roll when are ready to roll it out. We always do what we say, even if it's not always instantly.
