Welcome to Will to Live, a RP set in the fictional town of Monroeville, Maine. Orginally a small fishing village turned college town turned tourist trap, long-time locals are now outnumbered by newcomers in their ever-expanding hometown. Plots are primarily member-driven, with a wide range of interesting and diverse characters to interact with. Feel free to jump right in; fresh perspectives and ideas are always welcome.
your friendly staff

Hello and welcome to Will to Live. We're a community-oriented, play-by-post roleplaying game. In order to join, all members are expected to read and abide by the following rules.
Board Rules were updated on October 31st, 2015.
1.) Be Nice.
1.) Registration Format.
Good Examples: John Doe, John Hubert Doe, John H. Doe
Bad Examples: Doe_Boy19, John "Johnny" Doe, john doe
Upon posting your character's application, members are free to immediately begin posting in the plotting forums and IC intros/chats. However, staff must sort your character into the proper usergroup before you can begin participating in "legit" threads.
Members are also allowed to have a main OoC account if they want to take advantage of the subaccount mod, however this isn't required. For more info on subaccounts, CHECK HERE.
Language (2) -- Swearing and use of profanity is allowed in-character, but should be kept to a tasteful minimum in the cbox and OoC sections of the site.
Sexual Content (2) -- Sexual innuendos and references are allowed, but explicit narration is not. This means when it comes to your characters actually doing the deed, please fade to black. And when they're telling their friends about it later, don't go into extreme detail.
Violence (3) -- Extreme violence is permitted, and explicit description or in-game narration of violence is allowed.
If you are organizing a long-term plot involving illegal or rule-breaking activities including but not limited to kidnappings, murder, bank robberies, shady mafia dealings, or just a really elaborate school prank, IC consequences do still exist. It is not our intention to sabotage or discourage anyone's plots just for kicks, so all we ask for is that you notify a staff member beforehand to give us a friendly heads-up. If we are aware of the situation, staff will try to hold of on any IC judgement calls while things are still playing out, though this does not stop other members' characters from taking IC actions if it makes sense for the situation. Also, if your character is being undeniably obvious or if it gets to the point where other people's plots are compromised then staff reserve the right to intervene sooner.
FONT AND GRAPHIC RULES
Font Must Be Readable. We strongly encourage that members keep the default font size and color when threading, but if you insist on changing it, keep in mind that it must be readable or staff will ask you to change it. Remember that something that looks nice on one skin may not display right on another, so be sure to check before you decide to compose your posts entirely in light pink, size 0 font.
Avatars. Cannot exceed 200 x 300 pixels.
Signatures. Cannot exceed 530 x 275 pixels.
Please make sure the content of your graphics is completely safe for work and appropriate for the board. Not everyone is comfortable with staring at your characters half-naked all the time.

1.) No advertising, spamming, or harrassing.
2.) No texting and driving. Anyone that mentions that they're driving while using the cbox will be temporarily banned for one hour. We want everyone to be safe, and whatever you have to say can wait until you're not behind the wheel.
3.) Respect the comfort level of fellow members. Please remember that this is a public cbox on a site where people come to have fun and unwind. Try to be mindful of your conversation and subject matter, and if another member expresses discomfort, respectfully change the topic or take it to a private messenger.
4.) Content warnings still apply. If you are sharing a link in the cbox that is nsfw or falls under any of our other content warnings (found here), remember to give everyone a fair warning so they know what they're clicking.
5.) Be mindful of spoilers. We all have our favorite shows, books, or movies that we love to talk about, but remember that not everyone has gotten around to checking it out just yet. Please refrain from any details that might spoil the plot for other people.
6.) No moving or flashing avatars. Also, if you are linking to an offsite image or video with flashing or strobe images, please give a warning.
