Legends ofAmarna

The hourglass drips on and on, and over time history fades.


What is truth to a king? A tyrant? A god?

And you? What do you value most?

Once upon a time, the land of Aspasia prospered under the peaceful rule of a grand council. Now it's kingdoms lay shattered, its people divided, and its most ancient civilization forgotten. After a thousand years of struggle and the recent opening of ancient portals, long considered obsolete, the world is changing, and its inhabitants struggling. Each choice, each decision, now more important than ever. And you? Which side will you choose?

General

Respect: Respect is key on LOA. Respect everyone, members and guests alike. We aim to create a positive and encouraging environment for everyone. If you have a dispute please take it somewhere private or ask a staff member for help.

Accounts: LOA is an account per character site. Please be sure to create your OOC account before any IC accounts. Also, as a reminder please do not fill in the referral form for IC accounts. This will award you extra dewdrops and it is considered cheating.

Age: All members must be at least 16 years of age to register on LOA.

Birthdate: Birthdate is required at the time of registration. Please include YOUR birthdate on ALL accounts, including character accounts. This is to ensure that the mature content filter works properly.

Activity and Absences: Activity is strongly encouraged on LOA, however, we also understand that you have a life outside of LOA, and will not always have the ability to be around. If you will be gone for an extended period, please let us know on the absence board to keep your accounts from deletion. If an account has not been logged in within three months it will be marked “inactive”, and if it has not been logged into in six months, it will be deleted. Please bear in mind that an account that has been removed due to inactivity will have to start over from scratch..

  • If you are an emperor, empress, or monarch, posting in the absences board will protect you from challenges for up to 30 days.
  • Between 30 and 60 days of the leader's absence, the land may be challenged for, but a regent or second in command may stand in for the leader if challenged.
  • Starting two weeks after the leader’s absence, the second in command and/or regent need to fulfill activity requirements.
  • If the main leader is gone for more than two months, the second-in-command or regent will be permitted to take over the land.
  • If there is no regent or second-in-command, and the land is challenged for between 30 and 60 days, the leader will have to meet the challenge or risk forfeiting the land to the challenger.
  • After 60 days, if there is no regent or second-in-command, the land will go to anyone who claims it.

Mature Threads: LOA is a 3-2-3 site, meaning that strong language and violence, along with some sexual content is allowed.

  • Threads with innocent flirting/kissing, hand holding, and the like, do not require any content warnings, however, threads with moderate to strong sexual content need to have the provided mature tags added to the thread description. Although some sexual content is allowed on site, please do not post anything pornographic and fade to black once things get started (members over the age of 18 may take things privately if desired). Please ask a staff member if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Members under the age of 18 may not participate in threads with drug use or sexual content.
  • Pedophilia or grooming of any kind, incest, and bestiality are absolutely not allowed. Any such content will result in an immediate ban from the site.
  • We have a plugin on the site that keeps guests and members under the age of 18 from viewing certain threads. Please be sure to mark any threads unsuitable for minors (these include drug use and/or sexual content) with the provided mature tags. Any other content warnings may be posted in the thread name.
  • The use of unspecified illicit substances is allowed, however any threads containing such content must be marked with the provided mature tags.

Tables and Formatting: To ensure that our boards don't stretch on smaller screens please ensure that your tables are 650px wide or less (or use percentages instead of fixed values). If you are not using a table, or are using a transparent background, please leave all font colors set at default. This is to keep them from clashing with other skins.

Member Store Items: Members may not sell in-game items to other members for real money or DA points. However, trading in-game items for artwork, other in-game items, holding contests, or selling for in game currency is permitted.

Advertising Other Sites: Please post advertisements to other sites on the PLUG-IN board ONLY.

Advertising Artwork/Coding/etc: You are permitted to discuss advertisements to artwork and coding on the proper boards. You may also post links in the c-box as long as you keep it to a minimum and don't harass other members to buy your stuff. Lastly, all monetary and DA point transactions need to be discussed off-site. Staff are not responsible for member to member transactions.

Chatbox/Discord Please keep c-box and discord conversations appropriate. If someone is uncomfortable with a topic, please change the subject. This also means that any and all disputes should be taken somewhere private. The c-box and discord are public chat platforms and we want to show our best faces to guests, visitors, and members alike.


In-Character

Setting: LOA is set on the continent of Aspasia in pre-modern times (think high fantasy/medieval literature), so there aren't any cars, computers, trains, electricity, etc (though clothing spanning a wide range of cultures and eras is permitted).

Word Count: LOA requires a minimum of 100 words per post.

Tagging: LOA uses an automatic tagging system. The most reliable method of tagging is @[Character’s Name]. Make sure all capitalization is correct for the tag to work.

Entering Aspasia: Characters do not have to be residents of Aspasia to be played on LOA. For those new to the land, they may enter magically through one of the portals. While we suggest that you post new residents under The Portals board, portals are scattered all throughout the land of Aspasia so characters may enter anywhere you wish.

Seasons: Seasons change on the first of every month, and a new year will roll over every four months.

Aging: Adult Characters will age at the rate of one year every four months (four seasons). However, characters under the age of sixteen will be permitted to age as quickly as one year every week until their sixteenth birthday. After they reach sixteen years of age, they are required to begin a normal aging process.

Claiming/Recruiting: Characters may not claim or recruit another character or claim land until they are at least 18 years of age. Characters only need a minimum of 5 IC posts to claim IC.

Challenging: Characters may not challenge for land until they are 18 years of age, have the minimum required followers for the land they are trying to claim, a minimum of 10 IC posts, and the member should have joined LOA at least 30 days prior to challenging. Please see the Claims, Challenging, and Battles guide for more information.

Non-Player Characters (NPC's): Non-Player Characters: NPC’s are allowed for small functions on LOA. They can be used as shop-keepers, performers, etc. However, please keep it realistic and do not abuse this feature. If you would like someone to play a NPC for plotting purposes, please contact a staff member to let them know.


Crediting and Images

Credits: Please include credits for all images and tables (including your own). This can be in any format as long as it’s legible. Links of some kind are preferable over plain text. Please be sure to include links to any profile images, avatars, icons, etc, in the credits section of the profile.
*The code to create links is <*a href="URL">Link Name<*/a>. Just remove the stars and you should be good to go!

Images: Please only use images and/or designs that you have permission to use. Any images off of google, wikipedia, pinterest, or similar sites are prohibited. Furthermore, please check with the rules of stock providers. Some providers have stricter rules for their images. Please be sure that you are following them.

Profile Credits: Please be sure to credit all images you will be using on-site in your profile. There is a specific section for credits on your profile, so please be sure to link each one directly to the artist or artwork. This protects us from accusations of art theft, and ensures that everyone and everything has been properly credited. Thank you!

*The code to link images is <*a href="URL">Link Name<*/a>. Just remove the stars and you should be good to go!

Style Tags: Yes! We do allow html and style tags in our posts. If you want to create a CSS table, please be sure to use [*style]and [*/style] tags, and that all line breaks and other white space (except spaces) are removed. This will ensure your lovely code will work properly. Good luck!!
