We're a crime/mafia roleplay set in the present-day Chicago.

After bombing the harbour, the new gang in town, Enigma, all but declared war on the most powerful family in the city, the Bianchi Family. Police struggled to capture the culprits and were well on their way to build a solid case against the Bianchi, but their hard work was set back once the police department was bombed. Now, the war between the two sides is more heated than ever, and the casualties only tend to grow.

UPDATE 10 - 05/2017 There's...something rumbling, or perhaps brewing, among the people of Chicago.

UPDATE 09 - 04/2017 May is almost here, and we've decided to say goodbye to April with a shiny mini event! Thank you Bishop for the amazing idea, and for everyone who's getting involved!

UPDATE 08 - 03/2017 March is here! A few layout modifications jumped out of nowhere, nobody panic! Spring cleaning is also over and as such, claims and canon roles have been opened as we cleared out the inactive. Stay tuned for IC and OOC news & announcements!

UPDATE 07 - 02/2017 February is the real MVP as we're welcoming so many new members and characters to Bloody Dice this month!! We love you all, already established members, new and returning! ♥

UPDATE 06 - 01/2017 January, you ugly thing. Regardless if you're buried in snow or melting under the sun, we wish you a great year ahead and may all your dreams come true! Good luck to everyone going back to school, work or hanging on trying to survive.

UPDATE 05 - 12/2016 It's almost 2017! We hope everyone had a great time these holidays! Security, please escort 2016 through the backdoor thank you.

UPDATE 04 - 11/2016 This month we welcome back everyone who returned from their busy period...while the site is getting ready for a holiday update! Stay tuned for an official announcement and get your holiday spirit out of the box ;D

UPDATE 03 - 10/2016 Halloween is here early! As many of you were craving a special something, we delivered! Put your mask on and sink your teeth in this new event and get wild! Have fun everyone <3

UPDATE 02 - 09/2016 Two months on Jcink and the board became home to 25+ members, 90+ characters and a ton of fun plots! Can't stop, won't stop. Looking forward to creating more fun memories and always meeting new people!

the rules

Hello and thank you for taking interest in joining Bloody Dice! Please take your time to read the rules in order to make sure you agree to them. This way, everyone has a fun time roleplaying here!
Rules in red are the ones that were recently changed.

REGISTERING

When registering, please use your character's first and last name in all caps, as in: JOHN DOE. Don't worry if you mess this up! You can always ask one of the admins to change it for you.

Creating an OOC account is entirely optional. If you want one to link all your character accounts to, you can register as your ooc site/chatbox alias in all caps.

RESPECT

Treat the others like you would want to be treated, and it shall happen. We loves puns, jokes and teasing, if done in a smart way as long as no one takes offense from those. We will not tolerate any sort of disrespectful behavior on site.

MINI PROFILE & AVATAR

Please be sure to fill out your mini profiles after your app got accepted, in order to be sorted into your member group! If you need any help with any of the graphics such as resizing a gif or image, the staff is always there to help you! You can only get to posting once you've filled out the fields in your mini profile and took care of all the claims.

RATING

We're pretty flexible when it comes to violence and swearing; however, we're not a premium board so we cannot allow mature explicit content. That being said, there will be no smut nor excessive gore on the site. If you wish to roleplay such things, please do take them off site somewhere in private.

If you consider that your post/thread might come off as triggering for someone (meaning it contains triggering words or hints towards triggering topics) then please do write [TW] into the thread's description or title, or at the beginning of your post to warn your readers. If you're not sure where the thread will be going, you can always ask a moderator to change the warning, in the Member Services board.

APPLICATIONS

Please put the applications you're working on in the incomplete section. If you leave your app unattended for a week without any kind of notice of being away for an extended period of time, it will be archieved. For the applications in the pending section, if they're left unattended for a week, they will also be archived. No applications are deleted. You can always request your app to be 'unburied' and sent to you via PM should you want to rejoin or use the bio elsewhere.

We have a two admin rule, meaning in order to be accepted, your character's app will have to be reviewed and approved by two admins. After you've got the final approval, please edit your mini profile and fill your claims as stated above in the rules so you'll gain permission to begin roleplaying.

CHARACTERS

A few important aspects of creating a character are:

  • No Garysue/Marysue characters. Nobody knows everything and all characters have flaws, so yours must too. Flaws like "too pretty, too smart" are not valid.

  • We do not allow any "villains/heroes" kind of characters. The roleplay won't be centered around one single character, since it's not fair to the others. Additionally, characters with mental illnesses must be played realistically and respectfully.

  • Always remember that In Character actions will have In Character consequences.

  • We have no limits on how many characters you can make, but make sure to only create as many characters as you can handle. Aditionally, even if we don't have a set limit on number, we do restrain people from making too many characters one after another. After you've made a new character, you'll need at least 3 active threads and have a week pass in order to create a new one.

  • Please do not copy any aspects of other people's applications or make a carbon copy of character from a show, book or movie when creating your own. We love creativity and well balanced characters!

  • Face claims should be real people. Celebrities, actors/actresses, singers, famous youtubers are all valid. Because we are a real life RP, we do not accept characters with face claims of cartoon chars, personal drawings, nor pictures from Tumblr/Facebook of a friend/yourself (it violates privacy). Aditionally, if a FC is claimed, please respect that. First come first served rule applies. Thanks!
  • POSTING & ACTIVITY

  • Posting should be done in a clever way. No one liners, but we don't really want to see a 1.000 words post just describing the flowers in the garden. Quality over quantity. In most of cases, please at least try to give your partner something to reply to. It's more of a matter of respect than anything else.

  • Activity rule is 2 IC post per month for every character you have. That means, if you have characters Bob, Bobby and Rob, you should post 2 or more replies with each of them, monthly.
    That doesn't mean we don't understand that people get busy. Real life comes first and if you, for some reason, need to step away for some time, just post in the absence forum or let an admin know so you won't get labelled as inactive, or get deleted.

  • We won't be doing any Activity Checks that require you to post in a thread and say you're active. What we will be doing are periodic sweeps (usually monthly) to see who is active and who isn't, if you haven't posted for a long time and you have no absence notice, your character will be archived and your claims will be opened. If, by the next sweep, you aren't seen around, your account(s) will be deleted. You're always welcome to register again or ask for archived bios/threads to be placed back or returned to you, in the Member Services board.
  • GOD MODDING

    Absolutely no godmodding, meta gaming nor power playing. You will be shot at, stabbed, punched, and while you may not get hit all the time, you will get hit at some point. You can't dodge every single swing or shot because it's not realistic. Controlling other people's characters is not accepted. Additionally, you need to have permission of the player before killing or permanently disabling their character.

    CHATBOX

    1. The out of character chat.
    The chatbox is a privilege and should not be abused of. If the following are ever spotted in the chatbox by the admins, you risk being punished:

  • Religious or political talks

  • Advertisments

  • Spam

  • Excessive swearing

  • Fights and debates in general

  • Trolling

  • Excessive plotting -> take it to the ICC

  • If you got into a fight with someone, or they've offended you, please refrain from further commenting in the chatbox. Please get in touch with one of the admins if you wish to sort things out, or if you should ever want to report someone for breaking any of the rules above. The chatbox is no place for scolding, and you should always be respectful towards other members and guests!

    2. The in character chat.
    This one has a few rules too, so as to keep everything running smoothly. That being said:

  • Keep it PG-13

  • Don't spam; testing your square image a few times is fine, but don't flood the chat with randomness

  • Only accepted characters, or chars with an app up for review, may be used in the ICC

  • In character chatting does not count as in-character activity; you will still have to give at least 2 posts per character per month in order to avoid being labelled as inactive

  • Everything that happens in the IC chat is absolutely AU (non-canon) unless placed/played out in a thread. You cannot play out canon scene in the ICC - create a rapid fire thread.

  • If no one is currently IC-ing, you may use the box for quick cbox plotting to avoid flooding the OOC chat with that

  • If the ICC is abused (or if IC threads are neglected because of the ICC), we reserve the right to remove it at any time


  • Thank you for reading!


    Failing to respect the rules might lead to you getting punished as following, adhering to the 3 strikes rule:
  • 1st- informal warning; via PMs

  • 2nd- formal warning; via PMs/ Email if you cannot be reached via PM/Skype

  • 3rd- temporary ban; depending on the gravity of your mistakes, the time period of the temporary ban will be discussed between admins.

  • There will be no other warning after your temporary ban is over. The next step will be IP banning, and we would really hate to have to take such measures.
