IMPORTANT


Now that the RP is starting I feel its prudent to introduce you all or perhaps re-introduce you all to a post structuring formula known as "Acts".

When an RP is structured in an ACT format then the following rules apply.

-Certain goals are set in the act that every character (Or groups in this case) must complete.

-A certain time period is set for the act, usually this time period is limited to a single day and the day will not progress on to the next day until the act is complete. However this is not always the case.

-Only certain locations are available in each act, this prevents players from venturing into places they're not supposed to at certain points in the story.

-Finally, each act will contain a certain number of events that will occur throughout the act, consider these events as a time limit to complete certain actions with your character. Most of these events will be hidden until they occur, but certain events (Such as the shit from day to night) will be known to all players, for example:

> ??? (This is an unknown event, once this event has happened it will be revealed through a post and then marked permanently in this thread.)

> ???

> Transition to Night (This is a known event, these are usually significant things like a time change, use these to gauge how much time you have to do something before something important happens)

> ???

> End of Act (This is the point where the act will end and the next act will begin.)

Remember, characters can create their own events and do whatever it is they want in the time between events (usually a day or two IRL) and they don't even have to be present for events when they take place. The events are just things that will 100% happen no matter what. Your characters reaction to these events (if they even have a reaction to them) is entirely up to you. Unless characters are specified as doing something during a named event then you will always have free will over a situation.

***

Now that the structure has been laid down, I hope that you all understand how this should work. Other than myself, nobody is permitted to post inside of this thread. Therefore, should you have a question about the ACTS system then please send it me in PM and I will do my best to help.
"You cannot hold what isn't there. It's pointless to look into nothing and expect answers. It's hard to protect that which we have never had... and impossible to cherish that which never existed to begin with. It's just another way that life can be cruel... and that cruelty will only lead to more of these created... Aye, they're sad things, these dreams of mortal man."
