FANDOM


Anatheria is not only a website for virtual pets - running alongside this is a large, healthy roleplaying community. Roleplaying is the act of choosing a topic (eg. Fantasy world that is dying out, or picking up a plot line from a novel) and writing about it with other users.

General RulesEdit

Roleplaying on Anatheria has a few, basic rules that many people keep by. This said, different roleplays have different rules, and it is always a good start to read all the posts on the roleplay before jumping in.

1. God modding (making your character invincible and immune to just about everything) is highly frowned upon. This is also known / closely related to power playing - making your character have too much power and strength, etc. Magic is not power playing unless the character can wriggle out of every single situation with it, no problems, without injury.

2. Mary-Sue-ing and Gary-Stu-ing (making your character perfect - beautiful, popular, lots of money, having a gun though they are a high school student for no reason, etc) is also discouraged strongly.

3. Chatspeak and leet speak in BIC (back in character) text is usually a big no-no, along with bad spelling and grammar, but it really depends on what type of roleplay you join.

The rest of the rules of the roleplay different greatly from roleplay to roleplay - from the amount of characters you can use to how long your post is.

Different Roleplay BoardsEdit

Anatheria has two different roleplay boards - Advanced and General. General is a place where most roleplayers start out - a place for ill- and, sometimes, semi- lits. It usually has roleplays of every kind - from made up ones to plots or spin-offs from books or video games. The Advanced board is used for roleplayers who enjoy a more literate experience - full- and semi- lits come here most of the time, although it is generally quieter than the general board.


Useful Terms and AbbreviationsEdit

OoC = Out of Character. This is generally used as a sort of side chat from the roleplay, where the roleplays can talk to each other without having to write their roleplay post.

eg. Suzie says: OoC: Hey, this roleplay's great! 8D

BiC: Jemima ran down the street, out of breath...

John says: OoC: Yeah, isn't it awesome?!

BiC: Bill chased after Jemima...

OoC can also be written as double brackets '((blahblah))' or '{blahblah}'.

BiC = Back in Character. This is usually used before a roleplay post - see example above.

GM = God Modding. Making your character invincible and immune to just about everything.

PP = Power playing. Making your character have too much power and strength, etc. Magic is not power playing unless the character can wriggle out of every single situation with it, no problems, without injury.

Illiterate = Also known as ill-lit The term used for new roleplayers or roleplayers who generally don't write long posts or spell check.

Semi-literate = Also known as semi-lit. The term used for roleplayers who write good length posts and generally spell check.

Full-Literate = Also known as full-lit. The term used for roleplayers who write long, detailed posts and have almost perfect spelling and grammar, with a mistake only very, very rarely.

Charrie = Abbreviation of character.

Character Sheet = Also known as charrie sheet. A list to be filled in before a roleplay describing how a character acts, feels and looks. Some roleplays don't use character sheets, prefering to use intros, which is describing a character inside a roleplay post.
