We expect all of our members, including our staff, to uphold, respect, and honor the site rules. We all make mistakes, and there is leniency if a rule is broken unintentionally and without desire of harm, but Written in the Stars stands firm in its rules and punishment will ensue if rules are repeatedly broken.



All roleplays must be PG-13
Proboards terms of Service requires that everyone must be 13 years of age or older to join. The RP level is PG-13. Mild swearing, mild violence, and Sexual innuendo is permitted. However, anything graphic is strictly prohibited per ProBoards TOS.

If you are a minor, please do not post selfies of any sort on the discord
Most of the members of our forum are adults. We are concerned about the safety of all, including our younger members. Please no posting of any personal information such as full name, address, etc! Written in the Stars is a friendly forum but it is also PUBLIC. This means that anyone can see what is posted by the members here.

Your discord name MUST match your forum name
If your display name is Twinkletoes on the forum, it also needs to be Twinkletoes on the discord.

Only ONE account per member
You only need one account to RP from. You do not need to create an account for each character you make. We find that one account per person makes RPing easier. Just make sure to keep your character tracker updated!

Make friends! No excluding!
The primary reason why people tend to leave forums is exclusion from roleplays or plotlines or just not feeling noticed. Please welcome everyone! Be friendly, say hello! Try not to get into cliques of people. Include as many new faces as you can in plot lines or roleplays!

We are a friendly LGBTQ+ community
If the above rule makes you uncomfortable please do not join this community. We want everyone to feel welcome here! No one at anytime should feel unwelcomed or uncomfortable.

No stealing
There are a lot of artists here, and people who have used OCs for many years. Please do not steal members' art or characters, even from other RPs. Please give credit where credit is due.

The minimum word count is 100 words
100 words is easily achievable. That is one solid paragraph. We do however encourage more. The longer the post, the more easy it is to respond. Writing less than 100 words almost guarantees no one will respond. It's difficult. Think about your surroundings. Describe what your character hears, sees, feels, etc.

The plot line
The plot is strictly member driven! That means members are free to come up with their own plot lines with each other. Plots that involve the entire clan will need permission from the leader. Major lengthy plot lines are welcome, but check in the staff to ensure it doesn't conflict with any others that are going on! Fights, sickness, rogues, drama, are all highly encouraged!

We use liquid time
Liquid time means you can RP in multiple places at once, and be at different times of the day. That means your character can be at the gathering, and running through the forest at the same time!

Please post in the correct area
There are times where characters may wander into different territories for plotting purposes. However if you have an X-Clan apprentice, do not post your training thread in Y-Clan territory.

No godmodding, powerplaying, or metagaming
Godmodding is taking control of another player's character during roleplay. An example of this is if somebody writes that their character kills yours without asking for your permission beforehand. Always check with your writing partner before writing how something affects their character before their own response.

Powerplaying is making an overpowered character that can never be hurt. Remember that all characters should have flaws, and that no character is invincible. Even the strongest characters should get hurt sometimes!

Metagaming is when a character knows something that they have no way of knowing in character. An example of this is if you tell your writing partner out of character that your character secretly loves them, and then in their next reply they have their character suddenly know this. 

There is a character limit
To prevent over population each RPer should not have more than 10 characters. This seems like a lot, but when kits start being born and you see how cute they are, people go crazy. Starclan, Dark Forest, and Void Characters do NOT count towards this limit.

Characters are aged the 1st of each month
Characters will age +1 moon on the 1st of each real life month. When kits are born, they are automatically aged to 1 moon to make them RP-able.

Leaders pick your warrior name
Just like the books, if your apprentice is about to be made a warrior, the leader picks the name. Not you. If you are very adamant about a specific name, please DM the RPer of the leader to ask them politely about it. It will help if you give a good reason for the name - for example, if Blackpaw was a good fighter, then Blackclaw could be a good name!

Inactivity will cause you to lose a high rank
If you are inactive for 1 month OOC and not meeting the thread requirements. You will be considered inactive and your character will be 'written off' - they will not be killed so that if you do come back they are rp-able as warriors! Perhaps they went on a long term journey, retired or went missing.

We do understand that life happens. If you are going to be busy for an extended period of time let staff know! We can toss in a plot line or the deputy/MCA can handle leader and medicine cat duties respectively

High ranks have a time limit
You may hold onto a high ranked character for 12 months OOC. After this time span you will be asked to retire, or kill off your character so that others may get a chance. This is not to say you can't kill them or retire them prior. This is just the maximum time you can hold onto a certain rank.

You CAN have up to two high rank characters
It is possible to have two high ranked characters at once but they must be in different clans, and different styles. If you have a leader/deputy in one clan, you could audition to have the medicine cat/mca of another. Please refrain from auditioning for another one if you already have one.

Some ranks have required threads

Leader - Ceremonies at the 1st of the month, the Gathering (this will be mandatory every three months - so once a season - but more Gatherings can occur if in character events prompt it. All Gatherings that are not written out will be assumed to have occurred off screen).
Deputy - The Gathering, and one thread organizing patrols or with warrior assessments
Medicine Cat - The Gathering, and one training thread if they have an apprentice or a duty thread (collecting herbs, treating wounds, etc). If a medicine cat Gathering occurs (this will happen whenever the plot requires it), this is also required.
Warriors - One patrol/training thread if assigned an apprentice.
Apprentices - at least one patrol or training thread with their mentor. Apprentices will also have an assessment thread which is mandatory to become a warrior. If you RP a medicine cat apprentice, they must make a trip to see StarClan before becoming a full medicine cat - this can count as your patrol/training thread.
Queens - Before a warrior can have kits, they need at least three threads interacting with their mate. These can be casual threads and can involve other characters. This is required for each litter.

Character Limit
As mentioned above, the character limit is 15. Deceased (including StarClan and Dark Forest) cats do not count towards your character limit. If you have 15 characters who are alive, you must kill one before making or adopting a new one.

Unless you are a loner, rogue, or kittypet, there are naming guidelines. Names must be realistic. Your cat does not know about metals, dragons, jungle creatures etc. This RP is based in the Southern United States. Any plants and or animals located in this area (WITHIN REASON) would be an acceptable name. The other is canon names. (**WITHIN REASON)

**Monkeystar is a canon name but would not be accepted. Cats would not know what a monkey is.
**Multiple syllable names would be allowed but please know it is harder to pair with a warrior name. Example - Butterfly

Please see our naming guide for a list of acceptable prefixes and suffixes. If a name you want to use is not on this list, feel free to ask about it in the discord! We encourage creative naming as long as it fits setting.

Another option for naming is to use the WitS name generator here. Asides from double names (e.g. Duskdusk), every name on this generator should be acceptable.

If a loner/rogue/kittypet joins a clan, they are likely to have to take a warrior name. Speak to your clan leader about this.

Character Creation
• You may not create a kit character. Kits may only be made if adopted from a bred litter
• You may not create a pregnant cat. Kits are conceived in RP only
• Leaders are picked via audition by the staff. Deputies are picked via audition by the leader. Medicine cats are picked via audition by the deputy. Medicine Cat Apprentices are picked via audition by the medicine cat. All future rank changes happen via audition in the order mentioned above
• Warriors must be at least 12 moons of age or older
• Apprentices must be 6-10 Moons when created
• Elders can be any age. Some cats retire early due to injury or illness
• Blind, deaf, and mute characters can be made within reason. However, do not expect that they will be a mentor or of any significance. It is up to the leader to decide how to handle those born with a disability.

Character Bans
The staff reserve the right to ban genders, ranks, specific clans, etc. When there is a ban for any reason, you may not make characters in those categories until the ban is lifted. These bans will be to ensure an even population of characters.
