Remember Wheaton's rule: Don't be a dick. Here are a few guidelines to remember while you play on GreaterRealms.

When you role play on GreaterRealms:

  • You, the player, must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Do not role play a character under the age of 18 engaging in sexual role play or scenes of sexual violence.
  • Do not portray or write scenes involving a minor under the age of 18 in sexual situations or extreme violence.
  • GR staff will do their absolute best to ensure your time here is fun, but GR members are considered to be mature enough to be able to handle in character and out of character on their own. Communication between players is tantamount. However, Admin and Mods will not hesitate to step in should the issue be unsolvable.
  • 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.
  • GR and its staff does not condone nor tolerate internet behaviors such as trolling, stalking, harassment, sexual harassment or threatening behavior while out of character. Any of these behaviors with proof will lead to a permanent ban.
  • If you believe your content --IC or OOC -- may be triggering to some, please attempt to tag it as such out of common courtesy.
  • When in doubt always ask. Ask a mod or admin if you are unsure if something is permissible. Ask your RP partners.
  • Follow forum rules.
  • Do not god mode or power play.
  • Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences. If what you have to say is hate speech, you will be punished.
  • Follow thread creators tags or prefixes. If a thread is marked, "closed," do not reply in it unless you have their permission.
  • Ask a sub forum owner/moderator if you may write in their sub forum before doing so.
  • Follow our Chat Room rules.
  • Attempting to contact a staff member about their decision in handling a guideline fracture disrespectfully may result in a ban.
  • Politics and religion should be approached with caution. There is no rule against discussion of it, but if it gets out of hand there may be.
  • Be excellent to each other, please.
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.



Privacy Policy
  • Unless otherwise offered publicly by the individual, do not publicly discuss, expose, or share real life names, addresses of players, or whom a player's characters are. This information and the sharing thereof is left up to the player themselves, not others.
  • Staff and members of staff are not permitted to use any trusted information about members to outside sources unless the express, written permission of said member is granted. The only exception to this rule is if a player becomes a danger to fellow players and the website, then certain information may be released (but never real names/addresses.)

Deletion Policy:

GreaterRealms will never knowingly hard-delete a post, reply, thread, user or subforum. Any posts, threads, usernames and content created by a player will be stored in a staff only access forum and kept. The only exception to this rule pertains to authors who may have need of having content removed for publishing purposes.

Please remember that GreaterRealms is not a democracy, a country, or a city state. It is a forum run by human beings, for human beings, and actions taken toward members are done so to protect the sanctity, safety and sanity of all members. GR Administrators and Mods reserve the right to close a thread, lock it, or otherwise move it out of the public eye should it be absolutely necessary.


These guidelines and rules are subject to adaptation and change as the website grows and may be edited multiple times to reflect new issues or rules. Please be responsible and check them often.
