    Happy two month Chaliceversary! Chalice is officially two months old! In honor of this milestone, we've got some cool stuff going on. You can get the rundown in our ANNOUNCEMENT THREAD! First and foremost, if you haven't already we encourage you all to enter the CAPTION CONTEST! The deadline for submissions has been extended. Secondly, we are running our first ACTIVITY CHECK! Please reply in order to save your characters. Accounts not accounted for will be deleted at the end of the check. Finally, we've introduced a new sub-plot feature to the site known as the DEVILS PIT. It is an illegal shifter fight ring set on the shore of Boston.

We would love to thank all of our fabulous members for making the last month as awesome as it possibly could have been! <3 Secondly, we are having a CAPTION CONTEST [click!]!

    Chalice closed due to the struggles of real life for both admins.

    CAPE HAVEN, MA
    Welcome to Cape Haven, a sleepy little town tucked away on the Massachusetts peninsula! Like many New England towns, it sees its fair share of sun and snow. Unlike most, it's got an large population of werecreatures roaming about its streets. Between the local university and the picturesque view, all sorts of folks are drawn into the warm embrace of Cape Haven. The question is, what are they? Better yet, what are you?

the rules
First and foremost, welcome to the site! We here at Chalice strive to make the community the best we can. That being said, we've got a few rules in place to help keep things running smoothly, protecting the site and our members. Follow them and your stay here should be quite enjoyable.


1. R-E-S-P-E-C-T! That word Aretha Franklin teaches us all how to spell in our younger years. Respect is the foundation of any community. Respect the staff, respect each other, and respect yourself. Intolerance, prejudice, and rude or hateful behavior will not be tolerated here. We understand that people's opinions may differ, but if a debate turns into an argument or, worse, a flame war, then we're going to have some problems. If at some point you have concerns about a member's behavior on the site, please message a staff member.


2. FOLLOW THE TOS! Jcink, like all freely hosted forums, has a Terms of Service Agreement that lets us use their services. Breaking the TOS means the site could get deleted, and we don't want that happening now do we? In compliance with the TOS, Chalice has a PG-13 rating. Mature content is not allowed on the site. This means no graphic sex, excessive drug use, or extreme violence. Cursing is allowed both in and out of character, but keep it tasteful. There's no need to drop an f-bomb every third word. If you have questions about the actual TOS or what qualifies as mature content, Jcink has written up a handy FAQ that you can read here.


3. REGISTRATION! So you've decided to join us? That's great! When you do so, please be sure to register your account as First Middle Last in proper caps. Your next step is the application. Please don't make any IC posts until your application has been reviewed and accepted. There is no limit on how many characters a member may have, but try not to overextend yourself. You have one week to complete your application once it is posted. If an unaccepted account is not logged into for one week it will be deleted. Please try to avoid creating Mary Sues and Gary Stus. The fastest way to have your character accepted is to created a balanced, three-dimensional, dynamic character. If you are interested in applying for a canon or taking a want ad, we ask that you post in the appropriate board to reserve the character you want and/or contact the member requesting the character so they can approve your ideas and make note of reservations in the request. No one likes having to compete for a character they want and priority will be given to those who make reserves first, except in special cases, where the admins will have the final say. When adding graphics, keep in mind that the standard size for an avatar is 200px by 300px, so we ask that you make all your avatars that size. The maximum signature length is 500px by 400px, though there is no problem with a smaller image. If you need help resizing an image for your application or graphics, feel free to ask `naliduck or Nicci. We'd be happy to help you out.


4. ROLEPLAYING! Once your character has been accepted, the real fun begins. Make your claims, get up a plot page, and jump into some open threads! We have no word count on Chalice, valuing quality over quantity. As long as your post is clear and moves the plot along, it's probably fantastic! Proper grammar and spelling is important as we are a literate site. Keep chatspeak out of posts and to a minimum in the cbox. Also regarding content, please refrain from power-playing or god-modding without permission of the member you are roleplaying with. Character death and rape are only allowed with permission of the character's owner and must be handled tastefully.


5. OOC! The site has a number of places for members to interact with each other out of character. These include chat boards, game boards, and, naturally, the cbox. That being said, these features are all privileges. Bullying, excessive swearing, and offensive topics are not permitted. If you want to have a mature discussion, that's great! But please respect other peoples opinions and don't try to force your opinion on others. Plugs are only allowed in the appropriate advertisement boards and should not be posted in the cbox or signatures. The site attracts members of all ages, genders, and sexualities, so if you don't want your thirteen year old sibling overhearing what you have to say then chances are you should probably keep it off the site too.
