Home Page Link Requirements
Mystical Realms has expanded in new and exciting ways. The addition of the Outer Realms has proven to be very popular and we are glad that MR can support other storytelling genres such as Action, Contemporary Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Horror, Science Fiction, Steampunk and Western.
As our site evolves, it becomes necessary to make changes to better serve the growing and diverse population of a site of our size. One change is the implementation of requirements for chamber pages linked directly from the chat.
Everyone must now have a home page link and the page needs to comply with these new standards, which donít take all that long to add to a page. These requirements make the chambers easier to use from the chat. Required information is as follows:
The Realm icon: The appropriate realm that the character belongs, either Zatrikion or one of the Outer Realms. It is always located in the upper right of the chamber and should not be altered from its original form.
The Realm Name: To be located directly beneath the Realm Icon. Be sure to list the name of the specific realm, such as Auvrynon or the appropriate Outer Realm name such as Evanwyn.
Stats: In Zatrikion it is Mind/Body/Magic. Those are the only three stats used and the only ones that should be listed. Outer Realms each have their own requirements.
Follow this link for further information on stats.
Character Description: A complete physical description is needed. Listing the eye color, height, weight, race is fine but a detailed, written description is necessary as well. We want to know what we are looking at when we see your character.
Age Rank is something else that's needed in every chamber as there are certain benefits for certain age ranks.
This is based off their relative age in Human years, not their actual age.
Child (Equivalent Human age < 13)
Adolescent (13 - 17 yrs)
Young-Adult (18 - 25 yrs)
Adult (26 - 39 yrs)
Mature (40 - 64 yrs)
Aged (65 - 84 yrs)
Very-Old (85 yrs & older)
Music: If you have music on any page of your chamber, there must be an off switch.
We believe these are essential to role playing and are to be listed at the top of the chamber. People shouldn't have to scroll to find the info or shut music off.
We have provided both a simple and a detailed template for members to use. Of course, everyone is welcome to create their own pages so long as the page linked to the chat complies with the above standards.
Here is an example.
One last note, Sexual Orientation is not allowed to be listed in character chambers as a highlighted detail. We feel listing it is an open invitation for cybersex and not appropriate for this site.
These changes are required and are effective immediately. Thank you for your cooperation.
