The Rules: For new Roleplayers and old ones alike.
Welcome to the Soul Society Bleach Roleplay

First of all, the General Moderators (GM) are Shane, Volg and Vigilante. Any questions can be directed towards the GMs of the rp.

Basically, there is a stickied thread with the title of Soul Society Registration, before you can start to roleplay (rp) you must complete an application and post it there. All new rpers must start out as a Unseated member of their chosen division. We do not allow hollows, arrancar, quincy, humans, or anything outside of a spirit in Soul Society at this time and for the foreseeable future.

We like originality, though copying certain attributes, physical features, and personality traits from another anime character is fine. But completely copying a character, (looks, name, history, etc), from an anime or manga outside of Bleach is acceptable, but those characters do not retain any sort of personal items or abilities in this world. Be creative with your character and make it your own.

When you have an application approved by one of the General Moderators (GM) in the application thread, you are allowed to post throughout the entire rp, however, it is recommended that you familiarzie yourself with he members of your own division.

Even if you're new, you can participate in the discussing it in the Soul Society (SS) RP Discussion thread. New brains still filled with creativity would be a large help in arc creation and all that. The SS RP Discussion thread is a place where current discussions take place between different rpers about ideas for the community and general questions they would like to ask the group. This is not a place to discuss posts between to rpers, that is to be taken between a PM and if necessary be taken to a GM.

The Rules: For General Conduct and Miscellaneous Other Things Important.

1.) The General Moderators (GM) are Shane, Volg, and Vigilanate. The three GMs are usually the people you want to take to about anything dealing with the RP. If you feel that you aren’t getting the right help you want, However, feel free to ask senior members of the rp any question you may have. They dont bite... hard.

1.1) When you need something approved, kidou, attacks, shikai, bankai, or anything you want to do or use in the rp please post within the proper areas, meaning the application section and disscussion threads.

2.) Majority rules. If you are the minority, that is unfortunate because it's common sense to realize that you can't please everyone (everyone > you). Also, majority can make rule #1 null and void. All major problems and ideas are brought to the community at large in the SS RP discussion thread and is voted on by the members.

3.) Read what people post, if something deals with you do not just look at the post that just says your character’s name and go from there. People put time and effort into their posts and it would be rude not to read it carefully. More so when the post deals with you, if don’t read it fully you’ll most likely miss something that deals with you. If you have any questions about a post, just PM the person that you are rping with and ask them about it. If you two can’t come to terms about something, then you can contact a GM to help in the discussion.

3.1) If you read something that doesn’t deal with your character directly and you want to question what that person is doing, contact the person that made the post first. They have more insight about what is going on then yourself, so they can tell you why they did something. If you still believe it doesn’t follow the rules of the rp, then after talking with them contact a GM.

4.) Please try to keep your posts readable, this is an English based rp so please show that you have some knowledge of the language. It benefits everyone involved if you take the time and put some thought and effort into your post and not something you quickly thought up and posted. Take your time and re-read your post before posting it. We don’t expect perfection, just try a little bit.

4.1) If English isn’t your first language then contact a GM and they would be more then happy to help you out with your posts or getting it right to post. We are a community and we are more then willing to help each other out.

5.) Do not Godmod(GM) in your posts. What is considered GMing is having your character do something that is out of their ability or brush off everything that is being thrown at you. If you are fighting someone at your same level or above, there will be blood. So please, do not think of your character an invincible one man army and that it would take an entire legion of hollows to take them down.

5.1) Please do not forceplay another character. This is where you post that the other character does something or that you make that character do something or take damage. Because our rp isn’t based on points, we place all our attacks on the other person to do any sort of damage. You may see some characters forceplay another character, but when this happens there might be an agreement between the two rpers or another aspect that you don’t know about. Some people us forceplay to move a specific part of a story ahead and get everything rolling, if this is needed please contact that person and discuss the idea before hand. Also, Taichous are at a level that forceplaying something happening with someone of a much lower rank is ok and apart of the power difference. Again, please talk about this before hand.
“Force playing is the playing of the other person's character for the sake of moving a thread along or whatever is happening. For instance, you will play out a character's actions, rather than waiting one post for them to do it.

While it's alright to get permission for assumed hits for something like a slap in the face for the other character doing or saying something crude, when characters are fighting, or are involved in a melee you should never ever assume a hit or a score.”

6.) Please respect one another, we are a community and if you want respect you must give it in return.

7.) If you are going to disappear from the rp please give a maximum 2 week notice before doing so. If you are going to be gone for a long period of time, please state this in the SS RP discussion thread. If you are going to be gone for a long weekend or something that is short, please just tell the people that you are rping with, and if need be your Taichou. If you leave without any sort of notice to anyone, a grace period of 6 months will be given to your character before it is removed and for every 2 months that you are gone from that time you will be decreased in rank.

7.1) If you give notice of your computer or your ability to post for long periods of time that you will be worried of being gone completely for those 6 months, an agreement can be made between GMs to help you out. But you must contact them to get this agreement, do not think that you will come back after leaving in a rush that things will be the same.

7.2) The GMs hold the right to change these rules depending on the circumstances of what has kept the member from the rp.

7.3) If someone is coming back to the rp after a long absent, they first need to contact the GMs about their character. Depending on the situation, certain actions will be taken. If real life issues have come and have lead the person with no real means of contacting the rp about their absence then an agreement can be made about their character and how they can return. If the person has had all their normal means of communication and did not use them to inform anyone of their disappearance then the above rules will still apply to that character.

7.4) If a member does not agree with the ruling of the GMs, a post in the discussion thread can be made to ask the rp community what they think. This is not a statement to bash what the GMs or what they have said, but to ask the rp to think about the case and see if they agree with the ruling. The GMs will take this discussion into consideration, but they have the final say in the matter.

I) If at any point the member the ruling is about decides to use this discussion to bad mouth the GMs, or bring up information from PM to discredit the GMs the discussion with be considered closed and the member will be forced to face the full judgment of the GMs.

II) Yes, some discussions can get heated between people but please keep them from being personal. Like before, if at any point any starts bad mouthing or attacking another rp’er the members involved can be asked by the GMs to stop posting about the subject and leave it be. Getting heated about a discussion is one thing, but attacking another user is a whole different story.

8.) It's possible to kill a member's characters but you can't without their permission. If they say no, it's no.

9.) If you allow your character to die and wish to return them from the dead, please come up with a plausible reason for their return. If it isn’t plausible then the character will stay dead.

10.) RPers can have up to 3 major characters. You are allowed one character to make it to the Rank of Taichou and all other playable character will be at Fuku-Taichou rank.

11.) You are allowed to create None Playable Characers (NPCs) for yourself but there is a limit on the amount. They can not be of the same rank of yourself, they can only be at a rank below your own. We will show this with a rank of Taichou, they can create a Fuku-Taichou rank NPC and that is all. If they lower the rank to 3rd seat, they are allowed 2 NPCs and it continues along those lines.

11.1) There are times where more powerful NPCs are needed be it for an arc for the RP or something else has come up, so contacting a GM and talking to them about this is the way to get around the NPC rules.

14.) If you are given the boot or banned permanently from the RP or site, your character will be killed off. The Mods and GMs will be in charge of death of characters, and will be in a manner most entertaining to us.

15.) No cybering. Cybering, or to cyber, is when you write mature content that is inappropriate, that means sexual activities

16.) Regardless of the harshness that the rules were said, if you're still unsure about something, ask.

17.) Multiple posting is permitable as long as the time difference between them is at least two hours.

18.) Now we have something known as a Power Chart. This comes into effect once you graduate from the academy. The Power Chart will help gauge your skills and progress in power through your life as a shinigami right up to Bankai and beyond.

19.) Gaining Bankai and Captain seat. After a year of RP'ing you are entitled to bankai. However to gain bankai you first must have reached Fuku-Taichou in the Power Chart, Second the GM's must all agree that your bankai is ok. Third you must ask The RP as a whole through the discussion thread to say if they think or not that you should have Bankai. This just covers bankia at Fuku-Taichou level. Once you have reached Captain strength you can then ask the discussion thread again if it is ok to become a captain IF there is a spot available and the timing is right. GM's MUST have the last say in this due to complications in plot and other things that might arise from it.

Thank you to Nicho, White Rabbit, Clay, Shane, Spidey for providing a great set of rules that have guided this RP going for so long.
