While using GreaterRealms Chat Room please remember:

  • Keep smiley/smilies use if possible to The Lounge, our out of character chat room.
  • Keep out of character chit chat to The Lounge, private messages or whispers. Simple out of character phrases such as (WB) (afk) (brb) are acceptable, but any out of character conversation and comments or full sentences should be kept out of any in character rooms.
  • Do not spam our in character rooms with links or images. If you are running an in character event and wish to link to the event's setting or event's post, you may do so once every 30 minutes or whisper/ private message a link to members in the chat. Keep OOC to the barest minimum if possible.
  • If you are in a user created public room please follow GR's guidelines and the chat room creators wishes.
  • Remember that everything you role play and type in public rooms are available for every registered member to read in our Archives/logs. Members are fully responsible for what they do and say in public logged rooms.
  • If you are in a user created, private, password protected room GR guidelines are still in effect. However, user entries are not logged. Private, password created rooms are moderated by those whom create it.
  • All writers 18+ and all character from all walks of life, descent, creeds, backgrounds, genders and beliefs are welcome here. Any out of character phobic behavior or harassment toward a character or character's background is not welcome. GR, while tackling more adult situations, is a safe space to role play. For everyone.
  • When in doubt always ask. If you are unsure if something is permissible, ask an admin, ask a mod, ask your RP partner(s).
  • Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences. If what is said is hate speech, it will be punished.
  • Politics and religion discussions should be approached with caution. There is no rule against discussing these subjects, but if it gets out of hand there may be.
  • Failure to follow our Chat Guidelines, spamming, out of character harassment, links to pornographic materials may result in a temporary or permanent ban from the chat. Please respect GR and each other. Thank you.
Three Strike Rule

GR runs on a very simple three strike process. Breaking any of our Guidelines (forums or chat outside of harassment) is considered a first strike. A first strike will net you a warning from staff members to cease and desist. A second strike will net a member a second warning as well as a written indication that this is a second warning. A third warning to cease and desist will result in an immediate 30 day ban where the member will not be allowed to access the forums, their profiles, their posts nor the chat room. If said behavior or guidelines breaking continues after the 30 day ban is lifted they will be permanently banned from GreaterRealms.

All conversations regarding warnings and bans will be kept either in text log or screen shot form and saved for future staff reference.

The only addendum to the three strike rule is if a player is found to be below the age of 18, or if proof has been given of player harassment. They will be immediately banned from accessing the website. We have a zero tolerance of harassment.



These guidelines and rules may be changed or adapted to fill the needs of GR growing user base. Please note it is your responsibility to keep track of them and ensure that you are aware of any updates our changed. GR chat room and forums are not a democracy or a city state. Administrators and moderators will do what is necessary to ensure the safety and sanity of our members at any time.

Thank you, and happy gaming!
