ConductPandora operates on principles of respect, maturity, consideration, honesty, and fairness. We have a zero tolerance policy for any form of toxicity including but not limited to harassment, discrimination, prejudice, and duplicity. This rule applies across the forum, including private messages, and extends to related media such as cbox, discord, and instant messaging. Concerns received from the community will be followed up by our team of Coordinators and acted upon appropriately.
CommunicateAlways remember and be willing to communicate with your roleplay partners. Many misunderstandings, concerns, or questions can often be resolved with some courteous communication with your fellow roleplayers.
Rating: 3-3-3Pandora allows for the exploration of mature themes, where depictions of nearly* all subject matter are permitted as long as they adhere to our content warning and tagging guidelines.
* Note that the purpose of Pandora is not to facilitate ultra-fringe or shock content for the sake of it, and we ask that players keep in mind discretion and respect for the subject matter when describing elements that can be considered disturbing.
OOC & SubaccountsPandora makes use of an OOC and Subaccounts system to keep all of your character accounts linked. You can find instructions on how to create your OOC and Subaccounts here.
Additional CharactersA player's first three characters are considered freebies and may be applied for one at a time with no restrictions. After that third character, in order to reserve and apply for an additional character, fifteen IC posts must be made with your most recently accepted character. Posts made in the Communications forum will not be counted. Staff may give out individual character caps if there is a pattern of impulse apps/drops or rapid character cycling.
Multiple Versions of CharactersUnder certain circumstances, multiple versions of the same character may be allowed. In order for us to allow multiple versions of the same character, they would have to act as entirely different characters. Since characters like BBC’s Sherlock Holmes and Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes are incredibly similar at the heart of the character, we would not allow them to co-exist here in Pandora. However, as an example, we would allow characters such as Once Upon a Time’s Captain Hook and the original Captain Hook to coexist due to their incredible differences in history and personality. These situations are handled on a case by case basis.
Characters Per FandomAlthough a player is allowed to take as many characters as they like from a single fandom, these characters should not be closely tied to one another. Each case is handled individually, so be sure to ask a staff member if you are unsure!
NPCS.Characters may be brought in with intelligent NPCs on a case-by-case basis. These NPCs are commonly animal companions or linked to the character’s skillset. For example, a Digidestined could be brought in with their Digimon, or Lyra could be brought in with her Daemon. There is a limit of 6 NPCs any one character may bring into Pandora with them.
NPCs from a substantially different canon point as the character, such as before their first canonical encounter, may be included after the development has been plotted and threaded out on the board. Otherwise, Pandora typically does not take characters and their corresponding NPCs from different time periods at the same exact time.
Advertisements.Any off-site advertisements belong in the Advertisements forum. Please do not advertise in signatures, the discord, or anywhere else on the site.
Concerns?If you have any concerns about anything, ranging from potential characterization issues to possible rule breaking, then bring it to staff. Reach out through either questions, the private questions board, or DMs/PMs to any staff account.
