These are the General rules of the site. This may include but is not limited to rules on Characters, topics and any other site related matters. If there is a rule that you think should be on here and is not, Check other topics just to make sure you didn't overlook something. If it's still not there, please post it in the Suggestions area of the forum.

There is no excuse for anyone to not follow these rules, they are here for everyone to read.

Account & Account Conduct

1. - Please do not make multiple accounts so that you may gain another character, or in any way try and fool other members. We do not allow this, and we are very strict about it. You have a 2 character limit which we believe to be kind.
2. - Typically, you should use a normal username for your account instead of your characters name. This is because of the fact that we allow more than 1 character but not more that 1 account.
3. - Do not lie and claim to be another user. This includes using someone's unique username from another forum and claiming that you are them. Out of courtesy to the rest of the members please avoid that.
4. - Don't share accounts with friends or family members. If one of you wants the account and doesn't want the other to have it anymore then that's just bringing us into things when we don't want to be. It's also unfair if you get yourself banned and the other person has to face the same consequence.
5. - Do not share characters, same concept as above. We do not want to be responsible of settling petty arguments about who gets what.
6. - Do not "give away" your account to a friend. Ranks are earned by showing a Role Play sample. If you give your account to someone that isn't at your level of Role Playing then that means we have a newbie potentially getting a free high rank character.
7. - Never give out your account password. Keep it to yourself and report anyone that asks you for it. An Administrator or Moderator will never ask you for it for any reason at all. We would never need it.
8. - Do not use any offensive words for your username. If you do, said account will be deleted and you will possibly be banned.

Character & Alchemy

1. - It's obvious that some ranks are going to allow you to have a character stronger than others, but please do not try and abuse that. We don't have time to be telling you what is too powerful and what isn't because we know that in most cases you more than likely already know.
2. - You must draw transmutation circles for your alchemy. We don't allow people to say in their applications that they are able to do Alchemy without any transmutation circles because they've attempted human transmutation. Only the higher ranks may do this such as Fuhrer, Kousenshu Alchemists, and high ranking soldiers.
3. - If you go for a high ranking character and it's still open, you still have to post a detailed application for it. No exceptions.
4. - Your Alchemy must be explained very well, do not post random abilities that has nothing to do with early chemistry.
5. - The rank Homunculus can only be obtained by your character dying and then a living alchemist attempting to bring said character back to life. It cannot be an NPC Alchemist either, and the alchemist must be at a decently high level.
6. - You may obtain a second character once you reach 300 posts, however your second character may not be in the same group. For instance, you may not have two Homunculus or two Kousenshu Alchemists.
7. - Do not ask for your character to be Chimera because we will always tell you no.
8. - Do not attempt to create a Canon Character. We do not allow them here. Think of this forum as an alternate dimension seperate from the world of the series.
9. - Please follow the rule of equivalent exchange. That means, you can't turn something like a pebble into a large cannon. What you use in the transmutation has to be equal to what you make out of it.

General Posting & Role Play

1. - To make things more organized, when you are role playing with other people please make sure that you come up with a post order and see to it that the post order gets followed. Usually it's the first poster that makes it, but that isn't always the case. Once the post order is figured out, please go by it. If someone skips another persons turn please contact a Moderator and their post will be deleted.
post order (definition) - an order set between members to determine who posts when. Usually it goes from the creater of the topic to whomever joined it last.
2. - Please do not spam anywhere other than the Random Area of the forum. That is the only place where spam is allowed. Spam can even include replies such as 'lol' or 'haha' anything that can be said but does not need to be. This also includes members posting on other member's applications. This is a no, only Moderators and Administrators may post on them.
spam (definition) - a useless post that does not need to be posted. This may include random internet lingo such as 'lol', 'lmao' etc. Advertisements unless posted the proper way are also considered spam.
3. - By signing up, and pressing the 'I agree' to our terms of service, you agreed that if a Moderator and/or an Administrator feels it be needed they may delete any post that you make on these forums. This may include anything, even characters. Although they will not delete any posts you make unless they have a good enough reason, you may not argue with them if they do decide to. If a Moderator has deleted a post and you found it unfair, then you may contact an Administrator.
4. - Keep any Role Playing topics PG-13 and under. We do not want to see any topics of cybering. It's sad that this rule even needs to be clarified, but I know if it isn't someone will end up trying it.
5. - Your character must be approved before you can Role Play. This is in general, not just for a specific area.
6. - When sparring, or even in a normal topic, please do not Metagame and/or God Mod. Neither are allowed, and may be cause for severe punishment.
God Mod (definition) - Also known as Power Playing, God Moding is known in Text Based Role Playing as automatically dealing and/or dodging hits. It can also be instantly appearing behind an opponent to impale them. There are many different cases.
Meta Game (definition) - Taking information learned out of character and applying it to storyline. Saying your character automatically knows things that would be impossible for them to know.
7. - Please, in all of your posts be respectful and polite to others even if they aren't acting the same way. If someone is doing something to anger you, then you should simply report it. Attacking back is only going to get yourself into trouble along with that person.


1. - Please do not troll, flame, insult etc. other members. We want to keep the chatbox as friendly as possible. If you do, you will be kicked once. If you return and do it again you will be banned for 2 days. If you come back and continue, it will be a permanent ban from the chatbox.
2. - Do not advertise your site on the chatbox. If you do, the chatbox will be cleared and you will be kicked. If you do it again, it will be a two day ban. If you come back and do it at all more, it will be a permanent ban from the chatbox.
3. - Please avoid constantly using foul language. We often do get more younger kids than older, and most of said kids parents wouldn't be happy with them being on a site that allows cursing.
4. - Do not post images in the chatbox. This can cause some people to get angry with you, because it makes things look unorganized and often people don't want to have to scroll up past your image to find earlier conversations.
5. - Avoid using light fonts, especially yellow. You don't want to hurt the other member's eyes because you decide you want to be funny and pick a ridiculous font color.

This concludes the General Rules of the forum. Keep checking back as these rules may be updated and additional rules may be added.
