  • Do not roleplay as famous fictional characters you do not own (like "Han Solo").

  • Do not roleplay immense wealth (like having a personal fleet) without permission from staff.
  • Roleplay of any form depicting rape, sexual assault, or sexual and/or physical abuse of minors is strictly forbidden and will result in a permanent ban.

ROLEPLAY ETIQUETTE
"Do not jump up onto the table and play Jingle Bells while shooting your killgun."

___________________________________________________

  • Out-of-character chat must be affixed with (( and )), or some similar indicator.
    Example:
    <Bob> (( Hello, can you help me find the Floran roleplayers? ))
  • Please use planet chat when roleplaying (the green chat). Click the bottom left "galaxy" icon until it turns into a planet to enable planet chat.
  • Do not disrupt roleplay. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Jumping around everywhere for no in-character reason.
    • Shooting or showing off guns for no in-character reason.
    • Playing songs for no in-character reason.
    • Excessive out-of-character chat.
  • Do not maim other characters without permission. Do not use this rule to become "invincible".
  • Do not roleplay knowing or using information that your character would not know.
  • Game mechanics are not necessarily in-character. For example, having a million pixels in your game inventory does not mean your character is a millionaire.

SETTING & LORE
"The governments have more power than you, and are more than capable of exercising it."

___________________________________________________

  • The primary source of lore for Orion's Edge is the Lore forum. This supercedes any lore from Chucklefish or other parties.
  • The most common form of security for colonies and space stations is teleporter security. It is virtually impossible to teleport to a colony or station that is secured without permission. It is impossible to use a teleporter while carrying teleporter blacklisted items. You must acquire permission from staff or colony owners if you wish to make an exception.
  • The Terran Protectorate and the Outpost (as well as everything related) do not exist in our setting.
  • The passphrase for the whitelist application is "sseth".
  • You may roleplay custom lore, but any custom lore that has major rammifications (like a new type of technology that changes day to day life, or a large organization that has political power) must be approved by staff. Please be sensible.

BE NICE
"You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar."

___________________________________________________

  • Do not harass or flame other users, even if their roleplay is inappropriate.
  • Do not use offensive real world racial slurs in roleplay, or other similar language.
  • Do not insult other users under the guise of roleplay.
  • Posting unauthorized personal information is strictly prohibited.
  • Be nice.
