Howdy-hey, guys and gals. Your friendly neighborhood Sato here.

After a few weeks of deliberation, your RolePlayGateway staff have agreed to revise the current rule on PDA from no response post whatsoever to allowing a single kiss/kiss response.

Just a heads up: Abuse of this rule (i.e. graphic content, excessively repeated two-posts kisses, general smuttiness) can and will be punished by mod discretion equally as if one were exploiting any other rule.


Example of the appropriate:

(User A) John Doe smiled bashfully, squeezing Jane's hand tightly, "I love you," he said, leaning in to press his lips against hers in an emotional kiss.

(User B) Jane Doe leaned into John's kiss and returned it, wrapping an arm around his neck. When the kiss concluded, she moved her head back, and buried it in his shoulder. "I love you too."

(User A) John Doe hugged Jane, and turned to face the group. "Are we ready?"


As you can see, the kiss lasts only two posts, isn't graphic despite conveying passion and emotion, and in the third post the first character moves on to the roleplay at hand. This will not hamper plot flow or romantic character development.

Example of the inappropriateness:

(User A) John Doe smiled bashfully, squeezing Jane's hand tightly, "I love you," he said, leaning in to press his lips against her in an emotional kiss, running his hand over her chest and letting out a pleasured sigh.

(User B) Jane Doe pressed forcefully into the kiss, and traced her hand over his neck, feeling the softness of his lips and skin against her.

(User A) John Doe pushed against Jane for a moment longer before pulling back, and smiled.


The above is wrong becaa-aause ..

1. It lasts three posts
2. It is graphic and smutty, obviously sexual and erotic
3. There is no other plot involved whatsoever.

Please be aware that any threads related to yoai/yuri/hentai/loli/etc are at risk of being locked and removed, because of and as well as any roleplays that contain excessive eroticism and related content that holds no literary value for the roleplay. General smut will be punished by mod discretion.

That about covers it. The Official RPG Rules topic has not yet been updated, but it's coming soon.

Thanks again for reading this, y'all, and hope to see you around!

Okay, that's definitely far more reasonable.

Jakuri is now a far happier Reyvateil.
