Gm, I have something I want to say about what's going on in character. Where do I do?
Always Unless otherwise stated (such as by the gm for a run), in the in character chat with parenthesis surrounding the the question or correction or PM the GM. The GMs are not responsible for seeing every message in OOC because we are often entrenched in other activities. Do not act as if we are.
You forgot X about my character which means X is invalid and should not have happened.
Sorry good fellow. I'll correct it as long as you make the correction in IC or PM.
I want something to happen to my character!
Pm a Gm. We'll talk about getting it to happen.
What do different tags around text mean?
"Quotation marks" are something I think you can figure out on your own.
/Slashes/ and *asterisks* mean emphasis, as do italics and bold.
\Backslashes\ are the main way to indicate private thought, although…
~Tildes~ can also mean that a character is thinking, but are more often used for telepathy. Telepathy also could simply be a combination of \"backslash and quote"\ as literal 'thought-speak.'
<Single arrows> refer to dialogue broadcasted over a loudspeaker or similar device, or communication using devices like a phone, radios, or texting.
[Square brackets] are used in conjunction with other punctuation, and indicate a language other than English. Please be clear about what language is being used if it isn't inherently obvious from contest.
Can I have like a step by step for character creation?
There's one at the top of the mechanics page, on the first tab.
Are we allowed to RP in paused rooms?
Yes you may! As long as there are no other open un-paused rooms, and you don't know the people using that paused room are gonna be back soon. If you're not sure, ask a GM.
