Just a little something as far as updates go, today, let’s get right to it. A small reminder: The confessions blog is not to be used as a way to insult other RPers or the way they choose to portray or play their characters. Any and all confessions that are perceived as offensive will be deleted, and will never see the light of day.
There have been some alterations to the rules about gif chatting, please remember to follow these rules. This will be the final time we mention this:
Gif chats are a great way to settle into a new character comfortably, especially a roleplay and establishes relationships quickly. We welcome them with open arms, however we have a few guidelines when it comes to this:
- Only chat - no actions, please
- Word count - replying with a gif is not a reply. Replying with just one sentence is not a reply. You want to create a proper conversation, not just be throwing words around that hold no meaning
- The correct use of gifs - Use gifs of your character, not pictures or gifs of someone else
- #baf starter - tag all gif chat starters with this tag, and make sure that it is one of the 5 first tags, so your post will show up in the tracked tag
A reminder to all to read the information page. Here you will find all the information about the characters you play, who they can interact with, and what they are allowed to do. Read the updates page here!
That’s all for tonight, thank you for your time :)

Hello RP minions,
The following has actually been addressed several times, so after this note more repercussions will have to come into play.
Actions in gif chats are not permitted.
For example; -smiles- -laughs- -hits- -kisses-
It’s unnecessary. You should be able to show such emotion with your usage of gif. As for literal actions, they should be saved for paras. It’s awkward to do things like -hitting- in a gifchat.
Gif chats must only be chatting. If you need to explain a certain movement or tone, do so in your tags.
Example; #he’s laughing, #he’s staring at her with such hatred rn
This is a final warning before more serious consequences come into play. Like this post so I can see that you’ve all seen it!
Sorry for such a loaded note. I’ll make the next one about puppies.
Thanks and have a nice day.
: Hi! I was wondering if I could possibly make a Prim character? I would probably make her older with a different faceclaim if it would be okay with you guys
We’re actually not going to have a Prim character at this time. Though if we did, we would keep the same FC and age. We like to be as organic to the actual story as possible.
Anonymous: some of your characters have been inactive for 3 weeks now.
We are aware, yes. Some of them are on hiatus, and have reasons for being MIA right now.

Anonymous: will peacekeepers have a big role in this?
They definitely will! After all they’re the only ones who will fight back against the rebels. In every single one of our rebel plots are always peacekeepers involved as well! - Lisa
