favorite the roleplay before commenting to reserve. upvotes are only mandatory to gain a second character but are always appreciated. please note that the admin team reserves the right to reject your reservation and/or application.
the minimum age limit for this roleplay is 19. this means that users, faceclaims, and characters must all be at least 19 years of age internationally at the time of reserving.
we allow faceclaims and characters of all ethnicities, nationalities, orientations and identities as long as they do not fall under our criteria for a banned faceclaim.
banned faceclaims include those that are deceased, have requested that they not be roleplayed (not to be confused with catfishing), those that have committed or are un8der investigation for serious crimes, those under the age of 19, those in the adult film industry, and faceclaims whose ages cannot be verified somehow.
ooc drama will not be tolerated in any way. do not mix ic and ooc. if you have an issue of any kind, we expect you to resolve it privately, with admin mediation if necessary.
ic drama is allowed and encouraged. all ic drama must be plotted and the content consented to by all parties involved. unplotted ic drama can only occur if all parties consent to the possibility but all parties have the right to state if they're uncomfortable with something.
failure to comply with this rule will result in a strike for all parties involved.
nsfw, mature, and triggering content is not allowed in any room not labeled with an [M]. you must properly label any and all triggers on profiles and posts/replies. failure to comply with this rule will result in a strike.
bubble rping, face chasing, user chasing, godmodding, discrimination of any kind, making others feel unwelcome, and creating an uncomfortable environment in any way for anyone, will not be tolerated in any way.
should you feel uncomfortable in any way, ic or ooc, please use the safe phrase "golden petals" as an indicator for the conversation to cease and a switch in topics to occur.
this roleplay utilizes a 2 strike system. 2 strikes for any reason will result in immediate removal from the roleplay and may include being blacklisted. 2 warnings (excluding warnings for hiatuses or inactivity) will be counted to result in 1 strike. warnings and strikes will be privately sent to the offender along with a full detail of any infractions. these messages cannot be deleted under any circumstances. failure to comply with this will result in immediate removal from the roleplay and blacklisting.
for every new person you bring into the roleplay, you will receive 20 activity points if they succeed in fulfilling the activity requirements.
inactivity is set to 14 days. you will receive one warning with 48 hours to get active or ask for a hiatus before being removed from the roleplay. going inactive 3 times in a row will result in immediate removal from the roleplay after 24 hours of the last warning.
if the admins notice that you are only making a few posts to not go inactive but are not actually roleplaying and being active in the roleplay, you will be immediately removed.
any character that has less than 30 ic posts after two weeks of being in the roleplay will be removed unless they have a hiatus or prior authorization from an admin.
semi hiatus lasts for up to 3 weeks or 21 days, full hiatus lasts for up to 5 weeks or 35 days. You are only allowed one extension for your hiatus and you can only request a hiatus of any kind twice in a row. after that, you would need to wait 3 weeks before you can request again. only formal requests made in the proper room will be officially accepted and acknowledged.
all characters must have a basic profile and dp within 24 hours of being accepting. a completed profile must be done within one week of being accepted. your application will be pasted into your profile and will count as your basic profile. layouts are not required.
within your first 7 days (1 week) of being accepted, you must have 1-2 active roleplay threads of any kind or 15 ic posts. spamming in any chat will result in removal of your character and you will have to start over.
if you're leaving the roleplay, pm one of the dedicated admin characters along with your reason. you may be as vague or as specific as you are comfortable being.
we currently do not have a character limit, we simply ask you to be realistic about how many characters you can handle and keep them all active. you may have up to 2 members from the same group as your characters. if the group has 7+ members, you may have up to 3 members. check the requests room for the criteria to gain additional characters.
the minimum age a faceclaim or character can be is 19 years of age internationally. faceclaims 19-21 cannot have their ages altered. faceclaims 22+ may have their ages altered up or down no more than 5 years with the minimum age still being 19 years old.
that being said, you can have a character have a career or be a part of a company from a younger age. for example, you can have someone be a trainee from age 9, but since the minimum age is 19, they would have been a trainee for 10 years by the time they are in the roleplay. Please refer to the company information to get the correct timeline for when the companies began to accept trainees and staff.
we accept faceclaims and characters of all ethnicities, nationalities, orientations, and identities. we also allow internationals. we simply ask that you be respectful of the communities and cultures you decide to represent through your characters.
we also allow the representation of any health condition, including mental health, injuries, physical or mental disabilities and other medical conditions, but again we ask that you do your research and be respectful, and properly label them as a trigger warning and provide full disclosure of your character's condition (at least ooc) to prevent discomfort.
all characters have a 2 week dating ban starting from when they are accepted into the roleplay. move in couples are accepted ONLY if both parties state that they are a move-in couple. marriage is also allowed.
pregnancy, adoption, and surrogacy are allowed with ooc consent from all parties involved. ceos must be notified as well. please keep in mind the impact a pregnancy and child will have on your career. pregnancy lasts 3 months ooc. mpreg and fempreg are not allowed.
before applying, make sure to read all of the rooms under the information tab. if you have any questions, please double check to make sure it hasn't been answered in the rules, f.a.q, or any other room under the information tab. otherwise, an admin will be able to clarify and answer any other questions you may have.
you will be given only 1 chance to fix your application, after which, your application will be rejected and your reservation cleared. there is a mobile version of both the rules and application for your convenience.
all characters are allowed up to 3 talents when applying. these talents must be listed from strongest to weakest, you may add more talents through points, every new talent will automatically be considered your weakest talent. you may not have more than 6 talents.
skills are considered independent from talents but they can be related. all characters are allowed up to 4 skills when applying. you may not have more than 6 skills. like talents, you can add more through points. speaking multiple languages is considered a skill. it will count as one skill regardless of how many languages is actually spoken. you cannot have a character speak more than 5 languages and only up to 3 can be B2 or higher.
when listing languages, you must also state your character's level of proficiency. these levels are: A1 (beginner), A2 (basic), B1 (intermediate), B2 (upper intermediate), C1 (advanced), C2 (fluent/native)
oc names are completely optional but definitely encouraged. however, should you choose an oc name, it must make sense for the character. for example, if your character was not born in japan or does not have Japanese parents, then their name cannot be japanese. when applying for your character, please only put what their current legal name is in the roleplay. for example, if the character was born Park Jisoo, but then legally changed their name to Park minhye, then you must put park minhye as the character name.
we also allow partially changed names. for example, using Steven Yoon instead of Yoon Keeho. or using a character's name in a different country, for example, using So Deokjun instead of Xiao Dejun.
stage names can be anything you'd like and are completely optional. you may also choose to have a stage name later on, remove your stage name, or change your stage name at any time.
