|Crimson Feather is an RPG that is played entirely on IRC - more specifically, on irc.darkmyst.org.|
This is our OOC channel - we speak about plots from and OOC standpoint, get together, fool around, anything that isn't the actual roleplay to do with Crimson Feather (with rare exceptions: see #netaholism).
This is the main IC channel - please respect that it is intended for roleplay only. Put any OOC comments you have into brackets.#netaholism
The theme of this channel depends on what is important in the plotline and who is currently online. If you find you wish to roleplay a different setting (e.g. the channel's setting is somewhere in the internet, and you want to RP an offline-based plot), notify a mod and a new channel will be opened.
This channel is a bit more complex to understand. It's probably best to first pretend it does not exist, lest it may just be confusing. If you want to know regardless, read on.Note that frequently, roleplay happens in 'sidechans', either for reasons of content respect, because the ongoing session is of undefined canon status ("Let's see how this turns out before declaring it canon."), or simply because there are several sessions in parallel. If you want to know if a roleplay is going on, asking in #dataclaw is the best way to find out.
Netaholism is a world suspended neatly between IC and OOC. It's hard to define. You play your characters, but the world is OOC. Perhaps picture your character as an actor who is playing in the movie Crimson Feather, and netaholism as off-stage. The degree your character will stay in his on-stage mentality is entirely up to you, netaholism is there for fun only, for a non-serious approach at roleplay, and for just having fun on days where the plot might be stalling for some reason or the other. The most important thing you should remember about IC/OOC seperation here is that Netaholism is player knowledge. Nothing in netaholism should ever leak into #crimsonfeather. Other than that, it's a freefire zone.
