  • All stories are interconnected.
  • If you want to put in new characters feel free to do so.
    • If you want to add a mystical character (vampire, werewolf, witch, etc) feel free to do so.
    • If you want to add a science fiction character (alien, superhero, etc) I may be okay with it, but I may not.
    • If you want to add a character to the first page, be my guest.
      • If you add a family of characters do so under the Gundersons and before Other with it's own heading. If it's a solo character put it in Other above Maria Consuela Angel Cortez.
  • Feel free to use any characters that have already been introduced.
  • Feel free to give the reader the option to play as another character in the scene if you wish.
  • Try not to put in bad ends. If a character goes to prison; that’s more material for the story. Even if you kill off a character, that doesn’t mean that the story ends. They can continue to have fun as a spirit.
  • I reserve the right to edit and or delete entries that are poorly written, or to bring two or more passages in line with one another.
  • NEW If you would like to write for a specific passage, but don't have the time at the moment, you may claim it by putting (Claimed) and your signature after the option you would like to claim. (Your signature is the second to last button on the editing page.)
    • Once you have written the passage, remove your claim from the option.
    • Do not jump another person's claim.
    • If you haven't worked on your claimed passage for a long time I will remove your claim.
    • The term 'a long time' in the above rule is defined as: "whenever I think it has been idle too long". It will be at least a week, but may be significantly more time than that.
    • Don't claim all of the options on a particular page. Leave some options for others.
