Welcome to Revival Dawn

Welcome to Revival Dawn. Revival Dawn is a One Piece RP set in an alternate universe of the canon One Piece manga and anime. We hope that you will enjoy your stay, and perhaps become a lasting member of the family.
To get you started on this path, here are a few guidelines that we would very much appreciate you following.

Rules and Guidelines

Respect your peers: Needless to say, you must show your fellow RPers the appropriate respect when interacting with them. This is a mature site, therefore foul language is permitted. But, abusing that privilege will likely get you in trouble.

Keep drama away: Truth be told, drama is rarely avoidable, but it is only welcome within RP sessions.

Language and Grammar: While it is not required that English be your first language, this is very much an English role-playing forum. Grammatical correctness and a degree of command over the English language is expected. This is to build an educated role-playing atmosphere and to keep misunderstandings during role-playing sessions to a minimum. Not to mention it's more fun reading something that is well-written and not littered with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.
Also, be warned - some perks (e.g. Haoshoku Haki, Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit, Logia Devil Fruit) can be locked behind Quality Score achievements through quests. Quality Scores are subjective to the quest grader, but, they are awarded based on the player's writing and story-telling skills.
Knowledge of One Piece: This is not a strict requirement, but do keep in mind that advanced concepts and history sets are used from the world of One Piece, and you may have to research them in order to comprehend them if you do not read/watch One Piece. The One Piece Wiki is your best friend in that regard. (Beware spoilers!)

Don't God-mod/power-play: The unbreakable rule of RPs (that is almost always broken). Controlling NPCs to a certain extent is acceptable, so long as the interactions between them are sensible and within the parameters of their abilities and personalities. However, you absolutely should not control characters that belong to other players. That includes declaring hits successful and role-playing the consequences of those hits on another character. There is a system designed to assist hit detection; follow it. Hypothetical roleplaying is allowed, however, where you can describe what might happen if the hit is successful.

Don't Meta-game: Meta-gaming is the act of exporting knowledge from you, the player, to your character. Your OOC knowledge should not influence your IC posts. This includes the act of reading thoughts. If you have read another character's internal thoughts, that does not mean your character should know what they're thinking.

Be Prepared to do Mathematics: Revival Dawn has a dice-based combat system that proves to be challenging to newcomers. The learning curve can be steep and there is a moderate amount of arithmetic involved. While many players have admitted to finding the system flexible and well-designed after sticking with it, we recommend you to glance around the system to see if it is your cup of tea before you commit yourself to us. The use of the combat system is not optional, so, please be sure the system appeals to you before putting in the effort of creating your character.
Character Limit: We require that you have only 1 character per account when roleplaying at Revival Dawn. However, you can create up to 5 accounts. Abuse of new account creation for the sake of a better starting position will be punished with account deletion.

Account Name: We also require that your account name be somehow related to your character (first name, last name or both? Or even your epithet/title). Numbers and symbols in the account name are only acceptable if they pertain to your character. If you have already created your account name without any thought to your character, you may change your account name yourself or contact an admin to change it for you.
We're not perfect: Somewhere along the line, you may find mistakes in the mechanics, or places where things have been left arbitrary. Do your best to accommodate these, and please use the suggestions section to help us better the site. However, be patient. Some things may have been left arbitrary on purpose, as there may not really be a perfect solution for it. Please also accept that there may be rule changes applied at any given time. While we do our best to keep players informed of these changes, sometimes the changes might be abrupt.

That is all for the basic guidelines. You may now proceed to the Character Creation Guide to get your very first character started on his/her adventure.
