Code of Conduct

I. on community

1.1: All members, regardless of rank, are expected to treat each other with respect. Each individual has something to contribute to the whole.

1.2: Commenting on another member's roleplay posts or applications is permitted and expected. Asking for critique is strongly encouraged, and those giving critique should be helpful.

1.3: Members are expected to have a positive attitude. Although venting is welcome, one member's mood shouldn't bring down the entire community.

1.4: Side accounts may only join temporarily when the main is unavailable.


II. on roleplay

2.1: When more than two members are involved in a roleplay, the original posting order (original poster, second poster, third poster, etc.) should be adhered to. If a member is absent, do not skip his or her turn without permission.

2.2: All roleplay is expected to stick to a PG rating.

2.3: Powerplaying is forbidden, meaning that you may not control other members' characters. However, you may powerplay to a minimal extent should you and your roleplay buddy agree beforehand. In combat, you may imply your intended effect, but you can't state it as fact.


III. on character

3.1: Your character must have a realistic appearance. Remember that certain appearances come with a price. Blue-eyed white cats are generally deaf. Tortoiseshell toms are sickly and incapable of fathering kits. Albinoism lends itself to a light sensitivity.

3.2: Your character must be believable. The easiest way to achieve that is to answer all of the "why" questions that could be asked. Why is the cat timid? Why is he ambitious? Why does she want a family? Flaws are absolutely necessary.

3.3: If in the higher or middle class, your cat will have one power, and that power will be as limited as it is strong. Certain powers will not be allowed, such as mind control, and all powers should be specialized.


IV. on penalty

4.1: A member sweep occurs at the beginning of each month. Swept members will receive a notification explaining why they were swept and are welcome to reapply. To best avoid being swept, be sure to contact Palm if you expect to be absent. Otherwise, all members should post at least once every two to three days.

4.2: Members will be deleted and/or banned from Sovereignty if they plagiarize, are constantly disrespectful toward other members, or if they frequently breech this code of conduct in or out of roleplay.


V. on application

5.1: All applications must be on a petpage. Make sure your applications are well-organized, easy to read, and free of written error. Although you may or may not be familiar with the guilds and/or friends with some of our members, please try your best to make the application as formal as possible.

5.2: Your membership application is temporary. Once posted on the guild's public chat board, a Sovereignty member will post it on the private guild board, where it will be reviewed. The collective opinion will ultimately determine whether or not you are accepted, and a council member will inform you of the final decision via neomail.

5.3: Character applications are permanent and act as a reference sheet. This application may be altered as the roleplay progresses, and the "last post" section must be maintained.

5.4: Council cannot be applied for as it is based entirely around page hosting. Generally, only those of the "favored" rank are trusted with pages, but all are welcome to volunteer.

The Plot

Summary

 Not long after Firestar breathed his last, a group of cats banded together. They were united by their powers, what were inherited from their parents, who were themselves either chosen by StarClan or The Dark Forest for the great battle. This next generation of powered cats rose up, and through their revolution, the four Clans became one. Under their leadership, the entire Warriors system was turned upside-down.

 The Clan is now divided into three classes: the higher, the middle, and the lower. Only powered cats are allowed to train to become warriors, and only those of the highest class can rise to become leader. Meanwhile, the non-powered lower class bears the brunt of hard times, and as that lower class continues to increase in number while the pure-blooded higher class dwindles, sleeping dogs threaten to stir...

Additional Features

Information

Guides

Should a member ever need help with a character or an in-universe element, we offer many handy guides. An herb guide, a naming guide, and others are at hand for Sovereignty's members. When creating a character or typing up a roleplay post, these can be incredibly useful and checking them can never hurt.

  To browse our guides, click { HERE }.

Purchasing

Sovereignty hosts a system of currency known simply as "points." Points are earned through activity, such as posting on the guild board, advertising, or participating in activities, and it's through points that members can create additional characters. Because of the point system, we are unlikely to lose half of our cast should a single member disappear. Although the idea is a more controversial one, this method is tried, true, and easy to get the hang of.

  To see the point system at work, click { HERE }.

Liquid Time

To avoid having characters locked in "roleplay limbo" as you await a reply, Sovereignty permits the use of liquid time. In short, this means that you may have multiple roleplays per character all at the same time. This is done under the assumption that each roleplay is truly taking place at different points in time, and the chronology of them is up to you and your partners. Liquid time is by no means required, however, and members are allowed to limit their characters to one roleplay.

For liquid time, there are a few limits. All roleplays must take place in the given season. Additionally, once your character receives a name change or rises in rank (even if it's mid-season), you may not roleplay a time before the change. In that same vein, once a significant plot point (ex. a battle) comes to pass, no roleplay may take place before it.



Entertainment

Activities

In addition to roleplay, Sovereignty provides its members with a handful of activities to participate in. These activities include a Warriors Name Game, a writing prompt, and more! If a member is stuck waiting on a reply or just wants another chance to exercise his or her creativity, these are available and active.

  To see all the fun, click { HERE }.

Board Posts

As a reference for when our fellow members are put in charge of creating our chat boards on the GC, a handy board posts page has been created. This page provides you with a selection of multi-post intros for use, conveniently divided into posts based upon the character limit on the boards.

  To use one of the intros, click { HERE }.
