After colonising in the mysterious land of Nordribjod in which creatures previously assumed to be mere legend roam, the men of the recently-founded country of Skystead have fallen subject to greed. The area of land bestowed upon them by the Velren elves is not enough, it seems. They want more, and they aren't afraid to let the elves know by openly attacking. Will they succeed, or will the elves continue to fend them off? The elves also want land, what they consider their land. The world is cooling and what was once Velren farmland is now fields of ice. One thing is certain— these growing tensions have everyone wondering just who they can trust.
Opened May 19. Valour is an 18+ medievalesque fantasy roleplay set in an original world.
This is probably one of the most important rules. Absolutely no disrespect of any kind directed towards members or staff members will be tolerated. Please message a member of staff if somebody is bothering you.
Please do not create an OOC account. OOC accounts are reserved for staff members. Instead, members should only have character accounts. When registering a character account, please use proper capitalization. All character account names must include and first and a last name (apart from sea-dweller characters, who will have only a first name unless they're attempting to fit into society). If a character application has not been completed (or edited) in two weeks, it will be archived. Face claim reservations will only last for fourteen days.
Valour has a rating of 2L-2S-3V and may have content unsuitable for those under the age of 18. However, this is not an erotic roleplay site and explicit detail is not permitted. The posting of pornographic content or images will result in a ban. While sexual references can be made by characters and references can be made towards the act, please fade-to-black when things start getting steamy. Or, bring it somewhere else (such as IM, for example.) At the moment, Valour is not using Jcink premium, but this may change in the future.
If you are roleplaying a mature or possibly triggering theme, label your thread with [M] for mature. This is just to make it easier for people to avoid reading things they do not wish to read. We do not have a word count, but measly replies that do absolutely nothing to move the plot of a thread along will be called out on. Characters must be 18 or older and characters younger than this will be NPCs. Under no circumstances will characters under the age of 18 be partaking in sexual content, even if it does have to fade-to-black.
Our activity rules are fairly relaxed here on Valour, but we do ask that you post at least once every week or post in our absence thread. We will hold activity checks as they are needed. Accounts that do not meet our activity standards will receive a warning and after that their character applications and plotters will be archived. We never delete written content.
Roleplayers of canon characters must be active (they're super important towards the plot, after all!). Again, if canon characters do not meet our activity standards, new roleplayers will be found.
In regards to face claims, please only use 'famous' people, such as actors, models and musicians. Try to use face claims in period clothing, with as little modern details visible as possible. We do not allow the use of faceclaims that are under the age of 18, or that have specifically expressed that they do not want to be used for roleplaying purposes. If claims are not done within 48 hours of a character application being accepted, the face you were using will be thrown up for grabs again. In other words, please do your face claims! There is a reminder within every approval response to character applications.
Do not use thread templates within roleplay posts, aside from the [post] BBCode offered. Feel free to use thread templates in OOC areas however, such as want ads/plotters/trackers, etc, as usual.
Signatures will not be used on Valour. Please complete the mini-profiles of your accounts. The avatar size is 250x400 pixels.
