We would like to keep interactions between all players courteous to avoid arguments or problems in the future; due to this, we ask that you please look over these rules.

Go along with the predefined plot, please. A map will be posted soon to show exactly where the territories lie. All of the historical people are, unless otherwise stated, alive. I have no problem with you playing a historical figure as long as you keep them in character. This means that we will not be having happy go lucky sunshine loving versions of W. T. Sherman, loves. ;D

Please, leave the drama somewhere else. We will not tolerate arguments and if you continue to cause problems you will be banned. We have a three-strikes-and-you're-out policy. Please don't swear in off topic or make mentions to any profanities. Let's leave politics and religion for somewhere else and just enjoy the game, okay? It's perfectly fine if your characters don't like each other! That's what makes it interesting, after all!

Roleplaying is done in the third person limited omniscent point of view in this forum, meaning that roleplay is in third person with the thoughts of all of your characters if there is more than one in the area. Please use proper grammatical functions or we'll have to ask you to leave. It isn't that hard to go onto Wikipedia, dears. No playing other peoples' characters or giving yours special laser beam abilities. Keep it PG13 and we won't be having any sex scenes. Thank you.

If you want to be a moderator on this forum please contact me via Personal Message or send an inquiry on the questions topic. You'll be given a code if I deem you eligible, or you will be rejected if I don't.

You may only have one character in the Senate with the exception of a Pro Tempore, a Clerk, a Whip, or a Vice President, and may only have two House representatives. Please follow the procedures that are listed on the next post.
