Frequently Asked Questions
Having a FAQ is pretty useless until someone asks some questions, right? WRONG! Here are some questions you might ask about the PeaceKeepers and the roleplay surrounding them. If your question isn't answered here, please email Lyla and she'll do her best to answer it. Who knows, she might even add it to the FAQ.
Who are the PeaceKeepers?
The PeaceKeepers are a peacekeeping force in the galaxy. As you may have
gathered by now, this is a sci-fi world, taking place (to use an old, old,
much-used phrase) a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. The PeaceKeepers
were started by a human faction that had broken away from a tyrannical
government (which will be described in "The Founding"). They now serve as
a police-type force, mostly making sure the decrees of the Galatical Government
are followed. As a force, they see a fair amount of action, but the Chavenlink
base has a horrible reputation as a "North Pole" assignment, used mostly to get
troublesome PeaceKeepers out of the mainstream.
What the heck is a Rramackrof?
A Rramackrof is one of the species of non-humans Lyla invented when she
started writing the plotlines for the PeaceKeeper stories found in
the Library. For more information on the Rramackrof
and the other non-humans, see the Species Information
Is Lyla the only one allowed to invent species?
No, she's not. The only request we make is that, if you have a species
idea, please submit it to Lyla (firstname.lastname@example.org
) before taking off with it. Then, she can add it to the Species
Information Booth so everyone can see it.
Can I have as many characters as I want?
Sorry, no. Some online/email rpgs have no limits on how many alternate
characters you can have, but we do. For now, the cap on alts will be six,
but that may change in the future. So, for now, keep it to six major
characters. You can roleplay as many nameless, walk-through-type characters as
you like, but keep names out, please.
What's a Zombie?
A Zombie is a non-sentient or non-self-sufficent character that cannot move
on its own. An example of a Zombie would be a pet--like Zel Theivson's Manquet,
Checkatavi--or a computer programmed personality. To roleplay a Zombie, you
must have one other character or alt active in the roleplay at the same time.
Zombies cannot roleplay on their own. Unlike our current character cap, there
is no limit to how many Zombies you can have.
