To help create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, we ask that you review our rules and guidelines before posting or creating your character.

Restriction: 18+ Mature

LoreFolk is an 18+ community. Any member found to be under the age of 18 will be immediately banned. We take the safety of under 18 roleplayers seriously.

In-character roleplay that is sexually explicit in nature must take place in the NSFW channel found beneath Liminal Spaces. Regular chatter that contains NSFW materials should be posted in #questionable-content .

Verified Members:

LoreFolk takes the safety of underage role-players seriously. LoreFolk requires all players to be 18+ to participate in our community. Additionally, in order to participate in threads containing sexual content, players must receive a Verified Member Role.

 

To become a Verified Member, a player must provide their date of birth. This information is to ensure all participants are of legal age to be viewing explicit content. Alternatively, if a member may notify a staff member via discord with their date of birth. This is optional and only grants access to the NSFW channels.

Verified Member Form:

Profanity:

While mild profanity may be used throughout In-character posts, the Community channels and chats, language, posts, images, or memes that are discriminatory, intended to harass, intimidate, or belittle another member will not be tolerated.

Maintain an Atmosphere of Respect:

We are happy to respect differences in opinion, belief, and value.

We ask that you help create a positive and relaxed atmosphere by not debating in the chat, forums, or discord group and avoid sensitive images and topics such as religion, politics, divisive news, etc. Please avoid spamming gifs.

Please respect a member’s identity, including pronouns, orientation, cultural backgrounds, and values. Bigotry, hate speech, anti-LGBT+ expressions will not be tolerated. We ask that you correct an individual gently if they make a mistake for the first time.

 

If mistakes are made repeatedly or you feel that you are being harassed, please contact a staff member.

Negative Player Interactions:

Lorefolk highly encourages members to contact a LoreFolk Staff Member following disputes, disagreements, and other negative interactions with other players.

With an 18+ Memberbase, LoreFolk expects players to 'act as adults' and take responsibility for their role in negative interactions. While intention matters, it is still possible to cause a grievance another member even when no ill-will is intended.

 

We prefer to keep a relaxed, casual atmosphere in our chats and addressing troubling behaviors, comments, and feelings is crucial to helping prevent them from happening again.

 

Members who experience a negative interaction with a Staff Team Member are encouraged to contact the Administrator, @ReD.

 

If a negative interaction occurs with an Administrator, Members are encouraged to contact @World Devourer , the Staff Member presently in charge of Member Relations.

ROLEPLAY RULES

Member Created Plots.

LoreFolk allows great flexibility in member-created plots with a few exceptions: member-created plots may not seek to permanently alter any part of Lore's canon.

If your character speaks another language other than English or has an accent, we ask that you mention this descriptively in the post but still construct all dialogue in English.
