Alternative Characters (ALTs)
We wholly encourage alternative characters. However, it is becoming a bit
confused and not everyone has registered all of their ALTs. We need everyone who
has an ALT to please put together a notecard that is titled with their SL name,
and then lists all the ALTs they are roleplaying in WoH. State if said ALT is
under your original/main account or under an account with a different ID. Please
also state whether the ALT is an adult or student, and send this notecard to
either Armen Bingyi or Vikkie Vuckovic.
If you want to roleplay an ALT, GREAT! We love the creativity. You all are
wonderful for the stories you come up with for your characters and the different
ways in which you portray their personalities. Please remember to create a full
character sheet for the ALT and wait to have it approved by a New Member
Minister prior to beginning roleplay with the ALT.
If you are roleplaying an ALT you need to be loyal to the duties for which your
character is responsible. If you neglect IC duties then remember that you can
then have IC consequences for it. You cannot neglect said duties to roleplay an
ALT or take part in another plot while leaving others to await you in another
situation. If you are roleplaying with others please be respectful of those you
are roleplaying with. Don't leave them to go off and roleplay another story or
plot until you are done with the first.
We are however having some issues with some who roleplay more then one
character. We applaud your creativity and ingenuity. However, please try not to
roleplay more then one character at a time. If you are someone that has more
then one computer going at once and has more then one character going at one
time in the sim... WOW I couldn't do it. However, for some it slows down the
plots those characters are involved in. A slower response time for one character
slows down the roleplay for everyone that is playing with that character, while
they wait for them to respond. This is unfair to the other players.
Please be courteous and remember that you are playing with others. You may want
to be involved with your different characters in different plots and storylines
but please choose one at at time in consideration to the people you are playing
with. Also, we have had complaints that some may be using one ALT to godmode or
metagame for their other ALTs or storylines. If we have evidence of this we will
have discussions with the player. Godmoding and metagaming spoil the roleplay
for others. Please do not use what one ALT knows and does in other storylines
for another ALT.
