In General Discussions
We have set this up as a place for Trolls to talk to our creative team, interact with other Trolls, get sneak peeks into the upcoming Copernia Campaign World, and Oakhaven Anthologies, and offer suggestions into the final content of those books and sequels. This isn't all about us. This is also where Trolls can discuss role-playing, share tips on being a Game Master, and even share world and gameplay development ideas. We want to hear from you, and we strongly encourage constructive conversations between members. We do have a few rules. It would be best to read the section of the website dedicated to the regulations surrounding community-developed material. We call it the Troll Works, and you can find it here https://www.eastcoasttrolls.com/blank That's the legal stuff. We also have some conduct rules. Honestly, this stuff is common sense, but we want to make sure that everyone understands. If you're interested in a formal version of this, check out our legal page. Look for East Coast Trolls Online Forum and Blogs Code of Conduct Real-world versus fantasy world. This is a site focused on a fantasy world. There are other, more appropriate places to discuss real-world problems. The only politics you should be discussing is whether the Copernian Republic is still influential, or the Orc Matriclans are actually controlling the all-male Stratocracy. Religion; is Aspros or Eurielle, the most powerful. I think you get the picture. Also, note nothing in our world is meant to represent, portray, or suggest anything in the real world. Do we get inspiration and even borrow from places and peoples and cultures? Yes, and that's all it is, creative inspiration? Please don't read anything into it. Posts or threads containing content that endorses hatred or violence based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexuality, or any other reason are not welcome. No discussion, no second chances. No Harassment EastCoastTrolls.com is a fun, inviting place, and we want to keep it that way. We have zero-tolerance for threatening or abusive language, online stalking, or any defamation of character. That last part is a catch-all term for any statement that hurts someone's reputation. That's libel when you're on the internet and part of tort law, not something you want to be involved in. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. No Baiting Remember what I said about a fun, inviting place? Posts or threads made solely to provoke a strong adverse reaction or conflict do not contribute to that environment. They will not be tolerated, and our moderators will take them down. No Spamming That means don't post the same thing across multiple threads to get your point across. We know you're passionate about your topic; keep it to a single thread. People will still read it, honest. No excessive use of CAPS or emotes. Oh, and no formal advertising for stuff that is not related to this website or the products available through East Coast Trolls. You can still talk about the cool stuff other people have. We aren't jealous. Besides, our stuff is better. No profanity or vulgar speech Different people have different ideas of what constitutes profanity. We are kid-friendly. If you slip, we will remind you of the rules. If you keep it up, you could get banned temporarily or permanently. Personal Content Remember, this is the internet, that great cloud in the sky where nothing ever, ever, ever goes away. Don't post anything here that you don't want the whole world to see. That may include your personal information like a phone or email address or even your real name. If you post something our moderators think may put you at risk, we could take it down. No Illegal Activity Yes, I know that is a no-brainer, but we are just reinforcing the obvious here. Any sign of any illegal activity of any sort will be taken down immediately by our moderators, and if necessary, turned over to the authorities. Remember, anything written here belongs to East Coast Trolls and may be archived. That's it. Now that all the uncomfortable stuff is out of the way, go forth and have fun. Let's get some great conversations started. I can't wait to see what the Trolls will come up with.
