Avlis policy on: Cybering

Post by Nighthawk4 » Thu Jan 04, 2007 1:57 pm

What is Cybering?

This is the Roleplaying of a sexual content between consenting adults
.

Any sort of sexual content involving a minor will get you Banned instantly - as will any sexual activity involving duress or force of any kind.

However, it is not actually against the rules for your Player Character to Roleplay sexual activity with another Player Character - as long as both of them consent to such activity.

Unfortunately, there have been many occasions when such activity has been Roleplayed in public areas, where other Players are able to witness this. Although all Players on Avlis are - or at least should be - adults, many people prefer not to take part in or witness this level of Roleplay.

Therefore, please have the courtesy of taking your sexual activity to a Player House or an Inn Room - where others are unlikely to witness the activity unexpectedly.

A friendly kiss and cuddle are fine - but anything more detailed or more extreme should be carried out in private please. Otherwise, you may find that your tryst is disturbed by a large group of outraged Nwalmers or the like. :twisted:

It has been suggested that this is a little too Draconian, so allow me to clarify. :wink:

I am not sure if this is actually on the Law Statutes, but effectively in RL, there are Laws which prevent you from screwing each others brains out in a busy public street or the like.

However, lots of people do manage to, er, perform in locations far less private than their own Homes (or even someone else's Home).

How? :?

Answer - The trick is not to get caught. :lol:

If you sneak away to some secluded location - the back seat of the car, back of the cinema, aircraft toilet, hayloft, quiet picnic area, etc. - and get busy - without getting caught, then that is fine. No harm done and you had the added excitement that you might have got caught.

Luckily, on this occasion, you didn't get caught. 8-)

However, if you had been caught, then next day, you find yourselves up before the Magistrates on a Breach of the Peace charge. If you were really unlucky, you might find yourselves on the frontpage of the Tabloid newspapers.

That is the chance you take. :shock:

The same applies on Avlis. If you go behind closed doors, then as long as you are both adult and you both consent, you can cyber anything you like - even if an unsuspecting DM drops in and vomits all over their keyboard. :?

If you choose to take the risk of somewhere more public - and you get caught - then the Magistrates might be one of the better eventualities.

I didn't say you couldn't do it in Public - just that if you take the risk, then you might get caught - and then you must take the consequences.

Within reason, it is unlikely any OOC action would be taken. It is most likely to be taken IC and thus you may have some outraged guards or frightened animals or the like come after you.

Please remember that whilst we might all be adults here, there are some things we prefer to do - or fantacise about - in RL, rather than witness in Roleplay.

Hope that makes the situation clearer. :wink:

Lastly, please remember the one part which is not negotiable. The Roleplay of any form of sexual activity where either of the participants is a minor - or where either of the participants is unwilling to take part - will get you Banned. No argument - no appeal - you will be Banned instantly.

This rule has been made by Orleron - who is the Owner of this World - so is is not open for question.

Strangest rule bump ever, but after 10 years of the rule being posted there is confusion on the matter.

And an update:

Henceforth, posting any Cyber related dramatic, graphic or explicit material, written visual or otherwise will result in a ban unless it is by the team, behind the curtain, for team purposes.

Absolutely nobody has to see any of this if they do not want to. That is the entire point of the rules.

As a last addition, if you have any concerns about any adult-RP related things, you can PM Pleth and/or I (we'll both see it eventually). Most Dungeon Masters don't want to see it either.

Hit me up if you have any questions.
