Starlit Avenue is a consent based roleplay.
Godmodding, power playing, and metagaming are all forbidden. Abilities should not be used on other player's characters without their consent.
Communicate with your roleplay partners.
It is important to make your intentions clear when starting a thread, or if you have lost interest in a particular thread and might want to drop it.
Posts should be in third person.
We do not allow first or second person roleplaying. We have no word count minimum; write as much or as little in your posts as you are comfortable with.
We require a minimal level of activity.
We do not require any special activity checks, but players who go more than thirty days without making a post will have their characters archived. Characters archived this way can be restored at your request.
In-character actions may lead to in-character consequences
depending on the situation. If your character assaults another in broad daylight in full view of multiple people, they may very well face legal consequences for that action.
On Starlit Avenue, we use tags to help organize our roleplay posts. The two most important kinds of tags are thread status tags
and content warning tags
Thread status tags
are used to let others know whether a thread is free to join or not, if it is completed, or if the players in that thread have dropped it. Threads should only have one status at a time. The four types of thread status tags are:
- open - This thread is available for anyone with an active character to reply to.
- closed - This thread is still active, but is not accepting any more uninvited characters to join it.
- finished - This thread is no longer active because the participants have reached the conclusion of the thread.
- dropped - This thread is no longer active because the participants have chosen not to continue it.
Starlit Avenue requires the use of certain content warning tags
where applicable. Roleplay threads or other content that includes: violence, drug use, sex, noncon, incest, and underage sexual content must
have that content tagged using one of three tiers:
- mention (example: violence mention) - this tag refers to the fact that the topic is brought up only briefly, but has no significant focus in the text.
- discussion (example: violence discussion) - this tag refers to the topic being discussed at length in the text but without graphic details.
- explicit (example: violence explicit) - this tag refers to the topic getting significant, graphic focus within the text. Whether the action is being taken or just talked about is irrelevant. All that matters is the level of detail and focus.
Starlit Avenue also encourages users to tag other content that might potentially be considered upsetting to others, or which members might wish to avoid. Characters who present as children, or are physically or mentally under the age of eighteen cannot be played in threads with explicit tags.
As a result, no underage sexual content explicit tag exists.
are not mandatory, but are encouraged. Each character should have their own unique tag, based on the name used for the title of their character sheet. If this is just one word, please tag as "Name (Player)" to avoid confusion. This tag should be added on threads they are involved in, on businesses they work at, and on their character sheet itself.
allow for multiple threads to be marked as being part of the same event, and should only be used when an event thread indicates they should.
are an easy way to mark threads involving a relationship so they can be found easier. Romantic/sexual relationships should use Name1/Name2, while platonic/familial relationships should use Name1&Name2.
are a way of marking which characters are connected to a business, and which threads are taking place at the business.
