Added Arcs section.

Also, in regards to godmodding, you should include having characters that are directly related to the ones in the games unless it's a relative directly mentioned by Klei Entertainment. For example, you shouldn't be playing as a relative of William Carter/Maxwell unless you're playing as Jack Carter (whom said company has confirmed to be his brother) or attempting a stab at one of Jack's twin kids and aren't automatically assuming that said twins are Wendy and Abigail. There's a lot of people who would take making up OC blood-relatives as a form of Mary Sue-ism and isn't appreciated just about ANYwhere.

Also, if you have been given permission by another, to control their character, don't make them do anything stupid. Just pretend they helped you.

Another key rule of RP; avoid short responses.I would explain this myself, but I'm just terrible at explaining things. I'll just try to keep it short and simple: No one-worded or even one-sentenced responses. Try to add as much substance as you can into your response. Use filler or even the dreaded purple prose if you have to. Just don't be bland and emotionless.Inversely; don't write long essays either. You're suppose to make your light beer manageable, not turn it into some fruity-tooty cocktail.

i didn't know there were such things as professional rolplaying. i thought it was about having fun 'n' stuff. i do get your point though, the writing should at least be understandable

Well, there isn't. It's mostly Grammar Nazi level of preference. It grinds on them, me included.

Considering this IS the Don't Starve part of the forums, it would make sense that the RPs here are related to the game. This, however, does not stop any crossover RPs from showing up, such as the Pokemon/Don't Starve crossover here. (I would LOVE to see a Danny Phantom/Don't Starve crossover RP, even if it's just to see Danny and Wilson argue with each other over the scientific impossibility that is being half-dead. XP)

I remember seeing a bit of that on your art thread. Or one of them. I could probably revisit that show...
