WINDBLOWN
DUST IN THE WIND, ALL THEY ARE IS DUST IN THE WIND
Welcome to Windblown, a modern supernatural roleplay revolving around the city of Windblown, Colorado. Though humanity may still be reeling from the shocking realization that the monsters are real, the supernatural community grapples with maintaining diplomatic relations with their more mundane neighbors. Windblown has been a testament that the normal and paranormal can live together peacefully, but is that peace sustainable? As the city develops and grows the oversight of the Supernatural Investigations Division has become more obvious. In the city of Windblown there's always been an unspoken rule - if you can't control yourself, SID will.

PLOT
In the city of Windblown, Colorado, humans might not be few and far between... but the paranormal isn't either.

Humanity was shocked when the supernaturals came out of the closet. Some were appalled, other accepting, others simply indifferent, but it happened. Worldwide, folks learned that the boogieman might not just be a myth, and that story of the wolfman may very well be based on fact. In 2011 the supernaturals were ousted and human beings were left shocked, baffled, and more often than not... scared.

But the boogieman isn't so bad, and the wolfman might not be either. Windblown was a city steeped in history... but its history since 2011 has been much more fascinating. Though other states and cities in the USA (and around the globe) retracted from the supernatural community, Windblown welcomed it in. Windblown has proven a safe haven for all manner of supernatural creature, no matter their associations, and the city has gained a lot of fame for it. Windblown might be a pilot city in this whole 'live-with-the-monsters', but it's working out.

Except, of course, when the paranormal can't get it under control.

When the monsters become too monstrous, that's when SID steps in. The Supernatural Investigations Division was created by the United States government. Some say it was in place before the paranormals made themselves apparent, but at the end of the day SID has one purpose: protect all of the beings now known to live on the planet. Human, or otherwise.

SID is an agency dedicated to the fair protection of human - er, monster and human - rights. Or as some prefer to view SID, they're Big Brother watching over the playground to keep the kids from fighting. Some SID agents may believe humans to be the superior race and believe their main purpose is to protect mankind, but others believe in equality for all. Whatever the agents' stance, any SID involvement creates tension in the paranormal community, especially in Windblown.

Though Windblown might not be perfect... Honestly, it's probably the closest thing to a sanctuary this brave new world can get.

RULES, EXPECTATIONS, AND GUIDELINES
GENERAL
1. Please, first register with an OOC/personal account – this is simply your OOC name/whatever you want to be called around the site. Your OOC account will serve as the parent account for JCINK's sub-account system and should mimic the name you use in the c-box. After your OOC account is made, you can make your character account with the character's first and last name correctly capitalized. Ex: Homer Simpson. If you mess up, it's okay. The admins can fix it with a simple PM.

2. Be sure to read the species information that applies to your character all the way through. It should go without saying that you should also read the setting, too. Be sure to adhere to the world setting (as well as species canons) that we have set up. If you have questions feel free to ask staff!

3. Members are expected to conduct themselves in a respectful manner. Be decent and follow the traditional expectations of conduct – be nice! Truly, we want you all to be happy and enjoy the writing community. The cbox can help assist in such endeavors (as can personal messages), but keep in mind the chatbox isn't meant to be a drama box. Try to be (predominantly) positive within the chatbox, and don't use it for advertisement or harassment. If a members feels there is discomfort with another member, do not hesitate to contact an admin. We will not brush off complaints or breach the privacy of anyone who contacts us on such matters.

ACTIVITY
4. Real life is hectic – we understand that. At the same time, it's only fair that everyone has the same sort of expectations in regards to posting. Applications have five days to be completed if posted while in progress – after five days, it will be archived. As far as posting goes, please try to post IC once every few days (or more if you can!). If there is no IC/OOC post from an account within 2 weeks, we will send a personal message checking up on the user. Past 3 weeks, we'll send an email. After one month of no activity, we will archive the account. After 2 months, the account will be deleted.

Those who post in the Absence board are naturally exempt.

5. Before making another character, please reach at least 10 posts with your latest character. Your plotpage, and contact with other members, can help you reach that goal quickly. As long as you are active with the characters you create, we've no restrictions on characters.

IMAGERY
6. Faceclaims are not shared unless your character has an identical twin. Faceclaims may only be claimed after the application of the character who is attempting to claim the model is accepted - members may reserve models for one week periods. When a character is archived, their claims will be released back into circulation and may be picked up by someone else.

7. Signatures should be made to fit within the template. Avatars should be 250px by 400px. The size of the application image is 400x300. There is a Quick List for other graphic dimensions. Templates are provided for various posting activities on the board. Though it's strongly suggested you use them, they are not required.

POSTING
8. Generally, in character posts should be in 3rd person. However, 1st person is a-okay in the application and various other areas of the board. Godmodding [creating and/or writing a character with godlike qualities, such as omnipotence and omniscience] is prohibited. Powerplaying [controlling another's character that is not your own] generally is as well. Exceptions for powerplaying are made if the parties involved agree to the conduct. Keep in mind, ultimately, the owner of the character has dominant authority over the character's fate.

9. Our rating is 3/3/3. What does this mean? It means any topics of questionable (graphic) material should be clearly marked. While we encourage fade to black in regard to sexual content, we aren't against other preferences. Explicit topics should be tagged with an [M] at the beginning of the title. If your topic has incredibly graphic violence, make sure to put a [violence] tag in the topic description. Users are suggested to be 18+ due to the adult content that is allowed on the forums. Adult content is marked and can be avoided. Ultimately, it's up to the user to discern whether the content is to their tastes, and to avoid content that could be offensive to them.

10. There is no word count so enjoy yourself. We do ask you aim for at least four well formed paragraphs (which is about 400 words if you were curious). Quality over Quantity! That in mind, there should not be one-liners in the main roleplay area.

READY, SET, GO!
11. Any questions or concerns can be taken up with the admins via PM. For reference, the staff team consists of Ann and Lemon. That's all, folks! Enjoy yourselves.
