Please read the FAQs page as well!

 

Basic rules:

  1. This is a roleplay site. No "real life" non-fictional accounts will be permitted.
  2. No canon characters from outside the Disney Duckverse (i.e., DuckTales and Darkwing) are currently permitted. The roleplay here is dedicated to this particular universe, so canon characters must be from these shows (or related comics and other media). If you're considering a canon but aren't sure if they'll fit in, by all means feel free to contact FearsomeFive@gmail.com to discuss it.
  3. Regarding original characters: Your OC can join, but they should be tailored to the Duckverse in some shape or form. This means their species, backstory, and abilities should be relatively in-canon to the duckverse. If you're unsure whether your OC meets the criteria, please contact FearsomeFive@gmail.com and we can discuss it.
  4. Be courteous and respectful toward your fellow players.
  5. There is no official set limit for how many photos you can upload, but do be respectful and try not to flood the site with thousands of images. Use your personal discretion when it comes to uploading files!
  6. Mature, R-rated roleplay is permitted, however, it must be done privately. You can achieve this either by roleplaying through the chat function or you can create a group and set it as "invisible". If you require assistance creating an invisible group, please contact the administrator at FearsomeFive@gmail.com and I will assist you.

  7. Please keep drama to a minimum. Do not use the status feature to 'call out' another player or to make passive-aggressive OOC announcements. If you are experiencing an issue with another player, please either speak to the person in question or contact the administrator to help you.
  8. Please do not god-mode. In layman's terms this means overstepping the boundaries of what your character can and cannot do when interacting with other players. An example would be: Your character throws a punch, and instead of giving the other player a choice to let it hit or deflect, you go ahead and narrate that the punch hits the other character. Or perhaps your character is all-powerful and they're able to solve every problem presented to them with ease. Your character should be relatively well-balanced, meaning they have both strengths and weaknesses: Specifically LEGIT weaknesses, not small weaknesses like personality quirks or tiny physical flaws.

Canon Characters

Regarding multiples:

There is no rule against doubling up on characters here at DuckVerse - in other words, if a canon character you love is already represented, you are still welcome to roleplay (RP) them. That said, a diversity of characters is always a good thing!

Please note that if there are multiple canon characters, all players reserve the right to decide which canon character (if both) they would like to interact with.

Regarding head-canons:

A 'head-canon' is defined by urbandictionary as a "particular belief which has not been used in the universe of whatever program or story they follow, but seems to make sense to that particular individual, and as such is adopted as a sort of personal canon."

Head-canons are permitted. In other words, if a player would like to expand on the background of their canon character they are more than allowed. However, please respect that not everyone will agree with your interpretation of the character. As such, other players reserve the right to not interact with your canon character (and you, as a canon, reserve the right to choose who you play with as well).

Fan Characters

Connection to canon characters:

Creating a fan character who is tied to a canon character is absolutely welcome and requires no permission. HOWEVER, if you want to RP with someone playing the connected canon character, it is considered good manners to ask them first. This is mainly to prevent confusion when the person playing the canon character suddenly has a long lost wife/husband/daughter/sibling/etc pop up out of the blue. Or your fan character contradicts the canon player's current head-canon.

This is a very tricky grey area, because neither player has the right to impose their head-canon on the other. As such, cooperation is expected of all players to keep the roleplay fun and light-hearted. Remember: This is a cartoon universe which defies the laws of physics, and Darkwing Duck in particular was big on anti-continuity, You can always throw in an 'alternate dimension' angle to prevent character conflicts, or create some other deus ex machina to explain away the confusion. 

Connection to other fan characters:

How involved you get with another players' fan characters is completely up to you. If you decide to collaborate and create new characters together (for example, offspring of your fan characters) it is completely to your discretion as to who has ownership rights.
