What happens, if I relinquish control of Eden? does it stay it's own country? Does it go back to Southern Venezuela?

It would be the same as you created it (in the thread) only without a leader. It would be open more or less and someone(s) could come in and try to claim it. Thats my theory anyway.

I like this option. It's the most realistic.

If I wanted to have my character purchase an existing sports franchise would I need to follow the Empire rules and guidelines? I'm curious.

Nope, Gambler, you're amazing and can do no wrong so just do what you do

Why thank you. Appreciate it ;) Think I'll assume ownership of the New York Jets then.

If anything it would exist under NPC rules (you'd submit your idea to COE and need 2/3 approval), but I don't really think it applies to that.

If I wanted to say my character has in his possession the partially decayed, currently preserved, left arm of Grigori Rasputin, can I just say that? Or do I need to make a thread?

What are the rules against swearing in RPG's? (In character)

@raul_velasquez: The CVnU has no rules against any type of profane language or adult content. However ComicVine, the website we're posting on does. Those rules are enforced by the moderator staff. Normally the only mods that are found on the RPG section are Gambler, Mercy and Icarusflies. You could contact them to see how the interpret and enforce the rules if you wanted.

PG-13 is the rule of thumb on the vine. Maybe a bit into R rated stuff but only a bit. Violence you can get a bit farther with, and profanity you should probably censor somewhat anyway. Mostly though, censor the big three swear words (they start with S, F, and C respectively, and generally the C word is something you don't use around Americans outside of Porn) and their variations. You can usually slide with the milder ones.

As for reference to sexual body parts, generally speaking there should not be very many situations where you have to refer to those anyway and traditionally the site has frowned on gratuitously referencing them. Talking about sexual arousal In significant detail is also walking a tightrope. The RPG board mods are generally rather lenient of this but I really wouldn't push your luck.

Outright smut/Erotic Role Plays should be taken to the PMs. Posting your erotic role plays on the RPG boards is likely to beget a very swift banning or a stern warning and being the subject of mockery/seen as a creep for quite a while.

If you absolutely, positively must write smut on an open forum, there are quite a few sites for that, this is not one of them.

Now while the site's user base has skewed older and older as time went by (a long time ago most users were high school aged, now the general age seems to be 23-28) there are still minors here, advertisers generally get skittish about sites letting smut go around, the current company is unlikely to be happy about it, and comic fans already have a reputation of being creepers and we don't need to reaffirm that.

@_mistress_redhead_: Hrm. Kinda tough to give an overview of the entire Vine, I'm sure to leave something out. Basically the 'mutant/human' storyline is still the lead storyline and right now its focused in the 'Gothic Burns' storyline, which is an RPG where the Arcani [mutant terrorists/freedom fighters] invade Gothic City [its Gotham ;-P] and try to wrest it from the control of the USA to form their own city state. The heroes of the world arrive, some to stop the mutants and some to just save lives. Some villains fight on both sides and the city is trashed. We're only a few days in at this point and its got an insane number of IC posts so I can't describe everything that's happened.
