Cedaridge City, located within Canada nearly an hour away from Sunderland County. Famous for its bizarre rumors and less than average citizens, it has been nicknamed the City Of Faces. Immensely populated, Cedaridge offers refuge to those who wish to escape their lives and start fresh once again. While stories about Cedaridge may seem farfetched, the city is just as average as any other. Feel free to to take a tour of any of the local apartment complexes to find a home you like!
This city is for your writing muse. You will find that there are four forms of roleplaying here.
1) Third person interaction - While being the most common method of roleplaying, this is where you can take your claimed characters and roleplay actual events within Cedaridge City. You may interact with other characters as long as their creative writers agree. Whether the material is action, drama or plain conversational within a bar, you are physically moving your character in what may be referred to as "real time."
2) Journal Entries - These should be posted on the community and not in your journal. This is where you allow your character to flow from your fingers freely onto the keyboard to express his/her thoughts. These entries can generally be about any aspect you want to talk about regarding the character from their own POV. For example, you may write about what is happening in their current series and how the character feels about what they are going through. Another great example is writing a post regarding a bad fanfiction you recently had read, and then act as if the character has been insulted by it.
3) Prompts - Every
once in a milenniafew days or so, one of the mods will post an optional prompt in which you can choose as many characters you want to reply with. These are answered by leaving comments on the the prompt posts themselves. The prompts are to boost your creativity and allow you to really explore your claimed characters. You do not need to answer a prompt with every character you have claimed, after all the prompts are optional.
4) Commenting - This should be a given, but allow your characters to interact outside of third-person roleplaying! Have your character leave comments on other characters journal entries and prompts! Quite simple.
You are welcome to apply for five characters upon joining the community. If you are loyal to the community, you will be allowed the option to claim one additional character every other week. Look below for character application information after reading the rules.
With this said and done, welcome to Cedaridge City!
