Welcome to Carista. We are an original fantasy roleplay forum set in the world of Carista -- a place where the eight different systems of control are divided across countries and oceans and blood. The systems of control are Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Ice, Plant, Health and Time -- all given to humanity in ages past.

Now, during a golden age throughout the kingdoms, rumors have come of the Loners discovering an ancient building deep underground that contains a legendary Relic that may hold the key to ultimate power or destruction. And so the race of kingdoms begin with the prize being a Relic of untold power...

Basic Rules


Out of Character:
    -Please register an Alias Account (like the admins have -Deliah, Vulcan) and post in our OOC Introductions area before making your first character.

    -Keep the drama between characters, not between players. We all have enough to deal with in our real lives, we don't need more here.

    -Advertisements go in the appropriate areas only. Any advertisements outside of this area will be deleted.



In Character/Posting:
    -All characters must be approved by a member of the Review Panel before you post. Not all characters will be approved without a review. If this happens to you - fear not! Since this is an original world, we understand that people may not get exactly what we mean right away. Remember, a review is there to help you develop your character from that brilliant brain of yours to our non-mind-reading community. All reviews will be sent via Private Message.

    -All characters need their own account.

    -Use spell check and format your posts nicely - none of this giant block of text stuff.

    -All IC posts must be done with the proper character account. If you make a mistake, that's fine! Just copy your post, repost it with the right character, and delete the mistake post.

    -If a you want a character to post in a different Kingdom, please post it in the Travel Thread found here.

    -Respect the tags or lack there of in topics. If a particular character is tagged for a thread, don't just jump right in (unless of course, it is your character that was tagged).

    -If your thread becomes worthy of a [M] or [NC-17] tag, please add it! Sexual acts and violence happen, but please warn us before we open it. On that note, no threads with characters under the age of 18 will be permitted to be played in such threads. It's pretty illegal. Also, if you are a player under the age of 18, you are not legally allowed to write such threads (or read) that are worthy of a [NC-17] tag. You will be warned once to change your post or withdraw from the thread before you are banned from the site. Seriously, it's illegal.

      -The writers of any thread deserving a [M] or [NC-17] tag should PM a Carista Panel Member immediately. Any threads will be marked as such moved to a hidden subforum. Only members 18+ will have the permission to view those threads.


    -The minimum age for joining is 13 years old for a player.

    -Carista has a minimum word count of 250 words per post.

Board Etiquette

There are some of us in the role play world that have, over years, gathered information as to how the social order of our world works. However, there are some of us who are relatively new to the world or, honestly, can be a little dense and didn't realize there were certain things that really pissed others off. Thus, the admin team has created a list of Role Play Etiquette.

In this list, you can find many dos and don'ts that some of us know, others need a reminder on, and some still just need to flat out learn. If there is ever anything on the board that is repetitively annoying you about players' actions, please PM an admin and we will likely add it to our list.


    -Nagging Nancy players are annoying. -- If another player does not post right away, or even in a week or two, leave them alone. They will get to it when they get to it. If you nag them, they are more likely to wait even longer before replying. If a player is reported to be a Nagging Nancy or is seen taking part in this behavior...things will happen. It's really annoying.

    -Please ask other players. -- Never assume that a character that is not yours will respond in a particular way to a plot or that the player finds the same worth in your plot for their character that you do. In fact, never assume that a player wants their character to be in a thread. Ask ask ask, especially before you tag. Two heads are better than one, anyway.

    -Post if you have a reason, not to just post. -- Don't join every open thread just to get points up or just to be "active". Carista is a plot driven site, and thus our threads should reflect this. Please make sure you character has a legitimate reason to be there and interacting with the other character.

    -Compromise with other players. -- We all get excited about our plots and tend to be very eager to share them with others. However, please keep in mind that other players have just a great of plotting minds and deserve to have their voices heard. Your plot may work great for your character, and their plot for their own character, so it is together that you can create a perfect plot for both.

    -Don't be a dick. -- Seriously. Just don't.

Classifications and Experience Points

There are six classifications of power in the world of Carista. The first represents a common understanding of one's power with enough power to to basic tasks. The last represents the closest thing to perfection one can achieve with their power.
Citizen, Apprentice, Consular, Master, Grand Master, Blessed
Citizens and Apprentices are common, the others less and less so as you go up. For social ideals on these, please see information in The World.

Your Characters' Classifications:
    There are two options for receiving a classification for your Character.
    A -- You may have the staff randomize a classification for you. It is randomized based on your character's age. If you want a lower classification than randomized, simply respond with the classification you would prefer.
    B -- You may petition a classification. Please see more information in the Petitions below.


Experience Points and Changing Classifications:
    -Characters are dynamic and their classifications will reflect as such.
    -For each IC post you make for a character, you will gain one (1) experience point towards the next classification.
    -For each original character application, you will gain three (3) experience points.
    -Winning Character of the Month is rewarded with ten (10) experience points.
    -Writing in the thread that wins Thread of the Month will earn each character involved six (6) experience points.
    -There is a bar that represents your experience points in the current classification out of how many you need to advance that will be updated monthly.
    -Once you reach the next classification, your experience bar will reset back to zero and the total needed will change.
    -There will always be current, up to date total experience point count on the character's profile done automatically. (not counting first 3 points)
    -Points needed to go from....
      Citizen to Apprentice -- 30
      Apprentice to Consular -- 45
      Consular to Master -- 70
      Master to Grand Master -- 105
      Grand Master to Blessed -- 160


Characters 15 and Under
    Characters under the age of 15 will automatically be randomized as a Citizen. In addition, they will be required to earn 100 experience points to reach the next classification.

Character Petitions

Sometimes we have great ideas for character concepts that demand particular things that would otherwise be randomized. The staff at Carista recognizes this and would like to provide a way for you as a player to make such characters. Please understand that a character with a petition will be held to a higher standard that one who is not. Please remember that the reason for the Petition in the application is really the deciding factor.

All character petitions must be approved by two (2) Carista Panel members


Classification Petion
If you have a character concept that demands a particular classification and you cannot risk the randomization for any reason, you may petition a classification. In order to do so, add the following to your application:
Code:
[b]Petition[/b]: Classification Petition
[b]Classification Petitioning:[/b]
[b]Central to the Character[/b]: ---How is this classification central to your character?---
[b]Central to Plot Development:[/b]: ---How is this classification central to the plot development in the area? How will you involve your character in the plot, etc---

Element Petion
If you have a character concept that demands a particular element and you cannot risk the randomization for any reason, you may petition an element. You may only petition Time after two active months on Carista. In order to do so, add the following to your application:
Code:
[b]Petition[/b]: Element Petition
[b]Element Petitioning:[/b]
[b]Central to the Character[/b]: ---How is this Element central to your character?---
[b]Central to Plot Development:[/b]: ---How is this Element central to the plot development in the area? How will you involve your character in the plot, etc---

Activity Petion
Sometimes life throws us a curveball or out muse runs away. If a character of yours goes inactive for any reason, you need this petition to activate them. In order to do so, add the following to your application:
Code:
[b]Petition[/b]: Activity Petition
[b]Reasons for this character becoming Inactive:[/b]
[b]How will you keep this character from becoming Inactive again:[/b]



Player Petitions
Plot Ruler Petion
-Write and submit a petition to any Carista Panel member via PM or E-mail.
-The board will be informed that a petition for that Kingdom has been submitted. Anyone else will have a two week window to submit a petition before submissions are closed.
-The Plot Panel will review the petition and submit feedback to the player(s) via e-mail.
-Once the Plot Council has finished all reviews, the petition will be submitted to the board for a vote. Any identiying characteristic that would tie the petition to the player(s) will be removed. E.g. Jane Doe, Fire Apprentice will be replaced as [Female Fire Apprentice]. We will make this as anonymous as possible.
-You may only petition a kingdom after two (2) consecutive active months on Carista.

Code:
[b]Player Name:[/b]
[b]E-mail:[/b]

[b]Kingdom Petitioning:[/b]
[b]Ruling Character's Name:[/b]
[b]Ruling Character's Element and Classification:[/b]

[b]Succession Plot:[/b] --How will your character succeed the throne?--

[b]Overall Plot for the Kingdom:[/b] --Would you end the current plot? How? What plot would you be introducing or adding?--

[bInfluence on Kingdom[/b] --How would this new plot influence the Characters already in that Kingdom? How would it involve new characters?--

Activity Policy

Player Activity
    -A player account would be marked inactive if they don't have an accepted character after two months (extensions are available for those still working).
    -If all of their characters have gone inactive, players are treated as if they are a new member and have two months to have an accepted character (thus, like above).


Character Activity
    -You must post once every two months with each character. You will be sent a notification after one month of inactivity and that character will be sorted into inactive status after two.
    -In order to gain activity, you must submit the application again (it will be moved to archives) and add an activity petition (see above).

Aging

We like to keep characters dynamic on Carista. Thus, for every year in real life, a character will age at least a year and no more than two years. It is your decision as to when, to an extent.

Post in the aging thread [here] to request an age change for your character. A little stamp will be added to the character's original application/character sheet (such as "Happy Birthday! Jane Doe has aged X year(s)") and the age updated in the sheet itself.

If the staff sees that your character sheet has not been updated with an age change and the character has been accepted for a year, a stamp will be posted immediately and the character will age a year and the player will be PMd.

Three (3) experience points will be added to the character when the age, unless the staff ages them by default.

There is no need to change a PB or picture at any time.
