Atmosphere

This board revolves around the happiness of the members and is highly member driven. While we know that we cannot always please the masses, it will all be very diplomatic. We hope and strive for a community that will hold respect, responsibility, and honesty in high regard. If you feel that anyone is not following these guidelines, please let us know so that we can correct the situation.

We hope that this board can become a caring home for so many people to come together for our love of role playing and the Hunger Games. With this in mind, please be sure that the cbox is kept respectable and kind towards other members, characters, and storylines.

Above all things, this is a board for developing characters on the board. While we would not stifle plot pages and general plotting and requesting threads on the forum or in a private message system, there will be consequences in games if there is plotting. There are examples in the Games Rules. If you ever question if you are crossing a line, message a staff.

Participation

The Hunger Games includes a wide variety of topics that could be considering triggering to many. Because of this, we will have a mature rating to the site and are considered 3/3/3. Any game thread could have the death of a teenager, so be sure you are prepared - because these won’t have a trigger warning (tw). However, threads outside of the games that involve death, murder, slavery, rape, incest, sex, to name a few must have (tw) in the thread title. If you are unsure if your topic is trigger worthy, it probably is and mark it accordingly. Because of the mature content, we do require our members to be 18 years or older.

There is no word count here at Against the Odds, however that doesn’t mean that we don’t strive for quality. We want every thread to have some meat and purpose to it. The idea is not about the number of posts a character can achieve, but more about the story we are creating together.

There will be monthly activity checks the last week of every month. This is not meant to be scary or intimidating, we just will ask for a link that proves your character has posted at least ONCE in the calendar month. There are other activity guidelines and expectations for the games, please make sure to review those also.

Realism

The Hunger Games book series is the inspiration of this board and we strive to keep to the canon world of Panem the best that we can. This means that at any point in applications or posts, there should be no knowledge of a world other than Panem. There are also certain expectations we have laid out in other informational threads about the culture of the districts and world of our Panem.

We also will strive for realism in the games and above all things this will be key to decisions staff make regarding movement and plotlines. Romance in the games will be rather frowned upon unless you spark us with something unique and captivating.


Chat Box Rules

As stated above, the chatbox is to be kept on the up and up behavior wise. Please understand that this is one of the first things guests see and we support a welcoming and friendly atmosphere to all players. We also request that you keep promotion of favorite tributes and planning to yourself. The chatbox is not the place for this.

If you agree to the terms above, join us!

Registering

Step One. Register your Out of Character (OOC) name using proper capitalization. This is what you want us to call you and will be the parent account for all of your characters.

Step Two. Register your characters first and last name using proper capitalization. Please be sure that your character’s name is not already in use on the site. There are millions of unique ideas in the world of Panem for names that we should not need any duplicates. If you need help, the admins love brainstorming names.

Applications are to be completed within one week from starting. If you need an extension, please keep in touch with staff. We hope that you take the time to read all of the site rules and regulations to expedite the acceptance process. We encourage communication with other members and a cohesive world for our characters. Please, do some research. This one week limit also applies to victor & face claims.

Claims we hope to be within five years of the actor/actress chosen. Please also be sure that the play-by is age 13 or older.
