The Rotunda Setting Rules: Forgotten Realms

Postby Magi Nashira » Mon Oct 14, 2013 8:41 pm

The Rotunda is intended to be a sort of middle-ground setting for what is and what is not allowed. If you are interested in trying something out and you are not sure if it would be allowed, please contact the Magi.

These rules are in addition to the main Code of Conduct.

The Rotunda, an establishment in Waterdeep and owned by Nashira Tremont, The Dragon Lady or...the lady Dragon - depending on who you talk to!
The rules that all must abide by within her walls....

1: Animals are not to be played in the Rotunda: Animals that cannot take Humanoid form cannot enter the Rotunda. Note that the term ‘humanoid’ does not imply that ‘furries’ are acceptable within the setting. However, the occasional small animal that darts in and runs about for a short time can be overlooked as long as it is not disrupting play and is removed when asked by Moderators. Familiars of magic using sorts are allowed if accompanied by their masters, or for very short trips to relay messages and so on. Animal companions such as tigers, bears, wolves and so on are not. A bit of common sense is in order here.

2: Children under the age of 12 are not allowed in the tavern unescorted. So no 5, 7, 3, or 9 year olds, or any other age or fraction thereof.

3: Demons, Devils, and Outsiders in general must be disguised. Disguised is defined such that anyone looking at such a character would see just another human, humanoid, or demihuman. Horns, hooves, tails, wings, all must be hidden from view. Sharpened teeth seen in a smile, perhaps a shifting of the disguise when angry or something, these are fine.

4: Vampires can be in the Rotunda...However they can't be openly flaunting their nature. They must be disguised and can't feed openly, flash their fangs, etc. No one should be able to discern what they are by simply looking at them. Much like demons and so on. Other sorts of undead, such as mummies, zombies, corpses, skeletons, and so on are not allowed. Liches may be if they meet the disguise rules already stated. Vampires are expected to follow the COC as well as the in character rules just like everyone else.

5: Drow of Faerun or elsewhere may be played inside the Rotunda as they are or in disguise. It is up to the player. Faerunian Drow can be of good or at least neutral alignments, and therefore may be found in such a place. Drow are expected to follow the COC as well as the in character rules just like everyone else.

6: Dragons and similar creatures must take humanoid form while inside the Rotunda. It is fine if emotion makes them shift a bit now and then. But they run the risk of being expelled if they try to remain in draconic form.

7: Were's take human form in the Rotunda though they may partial shift in fits of anger and similar circumstance. Remaining in shifter form is likely to get one tossed in the gutters.

8: Fae in humanoid form are allowed in the Rotunda though their pranks and antics must abide by the Code of Conduct and IC play may never be used as reason to violate the Code of Conduct.

People entering the Rotunda with character types that are not allowed will be asked to change their character to suit the setting. Anyone insisting on staying after being asked or IC made to depart will then be in peril of crossing the line into OOC Disruption of the setting and room. Remember, at no time does character concept, alignment, or personality justify a violation of the CoC.
