Forum rules


NOTE!!! House Rules is on Hiatus until some behind the scenes stuff is accomplished. VV will announce when it will open up again. All current topics are still up for debate and vote, however.

1. Proposals are approved or denied no later than five days after the quarter ends. They may be approved sooner as time and GM consensus allows.
2. All GMs will vote yay or nay. Administrator has veto rights and also breaks ties.
3. Failed proposals should be resubmitted or dropped once approval is given or denied. Failed proposals will be deleted within 3 days of a decision.
4. Even proposals that are allowed are subject to editting by the Administrator or GMs.
5. Anyone may comment on a proposed rule.
6. Less is more: Players are reminded that when in doubt, renaming or retrapping is always better than new rules.
7. Show your math where applicable (preferably at the end, in shorthand), but make sure the final result could be put into an official book in terms of topic coverage, fluff, and layout.
8. Templates will be provided to ensure coherency of look and ease of approval.
9. If the proposal only applies to a very limited case (one PC/player) then takes it up with your GM. This forum is for rules which will be adopted site wide. Frame your proposals with that in mind.

This might exist somewhere that I haven't noticed yet, but I would find it immensely helpful to be able to copy-paste a standard, easily found template. Currently, I've been finding one of my older posts and copy - pasting my templates and deleting the older information.

Replace any <Bracketed> text with the correct information
Delete all <Red Bracketed> text before posting.
Each line break is intended to indicate the next post in your character sheet.
Dont include the Race/Power sections if they do not apply to your character.

Note: I stole many of the sections below from various places/peoples on this forum. I dont remember who and where I got them all from. Sorry :O. They're definitely not all in one convenient location.

I, uh, wasn't smart enough to realize that it would not show my BBCode after I posted it. I done goofed. Derp. What's the proper solution?

I'm under the impression that FEP cancels out Plasma's ability to ignore armor and similar trappings. I included that under FEP, but I'm not sure where I got this information? Correct me if I'm wrong and Ill remove that bit.

I'd love suggestions to improve the format if there are any. I'm certain there are.

If this is completely unnecessary, let me know and I'll just politely copy paste the code somewhere for my personal use!

we already are banned from sight. He refuses to pick up on video calls. But the site is another matter entirely :P

This already exists in the Character creation forum btw. But good attempt and awesome intentions.

I think his intent is an improvement on the one we use in Google Docs

If nothing else, the Template in the Google Docs should have a Powers section similar to the Cybernetics one. I've had to build it from scratch for every one of my casters, and no two players do it precisely the same way.
