FOR NON-ROLEPLAYERS

Out of Character Areas of Romanum

 

The only areas of Romanum one can be "out of character" (OOC) are: 

Romanum Marketplace
Various Dance Clubs

 

This does not mean you HAVE to be OOC, but if you do not wish to wear Roman period clothing or play a Roman period character, you may do that in these areas of Romanum. 

 

We also do not enforce roleplay within the private residences of those who own property in Romanum. However, even within those private properties, OOC clothing or OOC open chatting (local chat) should not be seen or heard by those nearby in public areas of Romanum.

 

All of the rest of Romanum, you are expected to be "in character" (IC)


Non-Roleplay Observer Group

 

Anyone not interested in active roleplay in Romanum, or who have not been approved for roleplay yet should join the Romanum VIPs group and wear the group tag when in the roleplay areas of Romanum.

 

Your Romanum VIPs group title will say "Friend of Romanum".

 

The Romanum VIPs group is open enrollment and anyone can join.

 

IF YOU HAVE MAXED OUT YOUR GROUPS YOU CAN JOIN OR PREFER NOT TO JOIN ROMANUM VIPs, YOU MAY WEAR THE TITLER PROVIDED FREE IN THE WELCOME CENTER.


Non-Roleplay Observer Guidelines and Rules

 

When in roleplay areas of Romanum, all people are expected to respect that they are in such areas. This includes those who prefer not to actively roleplay and those awaiting to be approved for roleplay.

 

For those who prefer not to actively roleplay and those awaiting to be approved for roleplay, you still have minimum guidelines and rules to follow:

 

  1. You must wear clothing appropriate to Roman times. Romanum provides a free outfit for men and women.

  2. IF YOU HAVE MAXED OUT YOUR GROUPS YOU CAN JOIN OR PREFER NOT TO JOIN ROMANUM VIPs,  YOU MAY WEAR THE TITLER PROVIDED FREE IN THE WELCOME CENTER.

  3. When using local chat with other people, please do not use language that would clearly be out of character for Roman times. That would be obvious "modern" terminology and references. Examples include referring to any real life modern person or location or news event. It would also include modern terminology about Second Life such as "SL", "RL", "lag" or modern computer terms. We prefer you say "Ave" instead of "Hi" and "Vale" instead of "Bye". 

  4. ULTIMATELY, IT IS BEST FOR NON-ROLEPLAY OBSERVERS TO COMMUNICATE PRIMARILY USING IM INSTEAD OF LOCAL CHAT.

  5. Be aware people around you, particularly those not wearing the roleplay observer group tag, are roleplaying and you may hear things that could be misconstrued and taken seriously as though it is real life. It is roleplay. If you are concerned and have doubt, IM the person you are concerned about and verify they are engaged in roleplay and that they are alright.

  6. NO flying. 

  7. Please do not teleport out of Romanum in front of others. Walk to a place out of view of others before you teleport out of Romanum.
