Common Roleplay Terms

You’ll see a lot of new acronyms and terms when roleplaying in our sim. Here’s what some of them mean.

IC – In Character

OOC – Out Of Character

RP – Roleplay

GMC – Game Master Council. The GMC is a group of players who organize and govern the sim.

NMM – New Member Ministry/Minister. NMMs approve new members, alts and special characters, and sort character sheets.

RPD – Role Play Department. These members create, organize and otherwise deal with plots and storylines.

Light RP – Roleplaying takes place in an area marked ‘Light RP’, but OOC is allowed and expected as well.

Low RP – See Light RP

High RP – An area in which roleplaying takes priority. OOC only briefly, and only when necessary. Take extended OOC conversation to IMs. Most areas of the sim are high RP, especially anywhere on the castle grounds.

Alt – An alt is an ‘alternative character’, a player’s ‘second’ character, which they play alongside their first. These can be played by a using a titler (words hovering above a player’s head), or by creating a new SL account.
