Posting Rules

When speaking,  or Posting in-game,  players will be expected to use the following rules:
  1.   Common will be spoken in any color you wish, except for red or orange.
  2.   When speaking in any language other than Common,  please use the "Language Group" section from the "Insert a Private Line" drop-down menu.  This way,  each character only has the ability to speak,  (and understand)  the languages in which they are proficient.
  3.   Any OoC  (such as Dice Roll Results,  etc.,  etc.)  will be strictly done in a Private Line to the GM  (or any Players involved).
  4.   Any other OoC which must be handled in an IC Post  (such as the Cleric PC letting everyone know how much he channeled energy for,  etc.,  etc.)  will be posted at the bottom of the IC post in ORANGE.
  5.   RED is reserved for GM purposes only.

*Tip: Use [Language unknown:  <nail>] rather than "Private to group" to have the text visible but automatically scrambled for people who don't speak the language (i.e. aren't in the group).

Posting Rules

  1.    In the initial combat round post,  I will describe the scene,  and the actions of any NPCs involved in the scene.  Any pertinent effects  (such as ongoing magical effects,  etc.),  will be posted at the top.
  2.    Each player gets to make a single post,  describing their character's actions within their post,  along with any necessary rolls towards those actions in a Private Line to the GM  (any spell effects,  etc.  that affect another PC may be posted as OoC at the bottom).  All PCs who beat the NPCs' initiative  (or who are grouped together between different NPC initiative groups)  may act in any order they choose.
       i.e.: Player 1 and Player 2 beat the BBEG's initiative,  they may act whenever they want (Player 2 before or after player 1).
  3.     For ATTACKS,  include the results of the attack roll,  damage,  damage type  (B/P/S,  Elemental,  etc.),  if a roll is a possible crit,  include the crit confirmation roll in the private line.
  4.     For SPELLCASTING,  include damage,  Save DC's,  type of save,  if SR applies,  and any other relevant information,  etc.
  5.     For SUMMONING  (such as the various summon monster or summon nature's ally spells),  include a link to the creature's stats.
  6.     For anything other than the above-mentioned,  include all information involved,  in the Private Line.  Also include any other factors involved with your actions.
  7.     I will give 48 hours time  (from the time of my initial post)  in the real world for all Players to get in their character's post for Round 1.  Once that time's up,  I will post a conclusion to that round,  describing the results of all rolls on all sides.  I will list the results of each character's actions in descending order of their Initiative Score in the concluding post for that round.  If a Player cannot manage a post describing their intent within that time,  I will be describing their action in the concluding post as a "delay" action.
