The Arrow

Southern Winds Weyr            

Welcome y’all! We are a Southern Vampire Mysteries and True Blood role play forum that was established in 2009. There is no word count and original characters and plots are always welcomed! Our plot has progressed to after the witch war with supernatural and human alike trying to live in a fragile peace.

How long this peace will last is unknown. Illegal sales of vampire blood are on the rise. Rumors of vampire extremists have started to spread. An unknown vampire has taken over the Mississippi werewolf pack and they have turned their eyes towards Louisiana. To make matters worse a murderer has started killing in the Bon Temps, Shreveport area, targeting supernatural and human alike.

The timeline is now anytime between March 1st and June 30th 2012 For further plot information, please see our Premise or PM one of our admin staff. Join in on the fun and come take a trip down south with A Taste of True Blood.

True Blood and the Southern Vampire Mysteries are the property of HBO and Charlene Harris, so no copyright infringement intended. Many thanks to them for creating such an amazing world to play in.

All graphics, colour schemes, coding and design were done by Staff. Any images found for the graphics were located using google image search. Big thanks to Entertainment Weekly for creating the American Gothic inspired True Blood cast images used in the header and sidebars. Fonts were care of and uploaded using font squirrel.

The coding was built using the Forum Hosting Stylesheet Version: 1.0.0 as a base which was added to and edited by Staff; however there were some other codes that contributed and are as follows. First off, big ups to w3 schools, a lot of help came from searches that lead to them. Sidebar by Brook (links to sites are now offline). Word count code created by Shawn Seley and contains their copyright. Removal of subforums is a code by InfoZodiac of The Peekaboo side table code was care of SubDevo. Image Mapping hover codes by Image Maps. Grayscale code by KarlHorky of GitHub. Many thanks to Darren Criss from ATF for the mini profile code.

  • First things first, you must be 16 or older to join A Taste of True Blood. The board is for mature role playing and some of the content in this lore may be of an adult nature.

  • Register your account using your character's first and last name in title caps with a space between first and surname. (i.e.- Sookie Stackhouse)

  • If you are going to thread something with adult content (R+) you must use the Privacy Board. It is password protected and in order to obtain the password you need to PM a staff member.

  • One character per account. NPC'ing someone in that character's life (who is not in play) every so often is one thing but please don't overdue it or stray from the POV of your own character.

  • No god-modding. That means no biting, fighting, sexual acts...etc. without the consent of the other role player(s) involved. You control your own character(s), unless you have permission to god-mod by the role player(s) involved.

  • On that note… no power playing either. Every character should have weaknesses to balance their strengths. You don’t need to be the best at everything or the most powerful of your species. Same goes for Mary-Sue’s… perfect is boring.

  • Please do not hound or harass other members for replies or to read your posts. Not only is it extremely rude, but very annoying. We will politely ask you to stop before further action may be taken.

  • Spamming or sketchy PM advertising is forbidden. It’s rude… use your common sense and follow the standard role play advertising rules. The Ad boards are there for a reason!

  • If you are inactive from the board for an extended period of time without explanation then the staff will assume you forfeit your character. We’re all aware real life can sometimes get busy but send a PM to one of the staff, or post a hiatus message. This will just avoid any confusion as to whether or not you’re coming back.

  • If you play a canon character, you need to make sure you meet activity requirements. They will be listed on the canon list. If you can’t keep up or staff feel you are abusing the canon activity rules (i.e. – doing the bare minimum just to keep that canon), the situation will be reviewed and you could lose your canon character.

  • When Activity Check time roles around and you haven’t checked your characters in, don’t be surprised when they are archived. Please note that it’s easily reversible to set you back up, all you need to do is contact a staff member.

  • If you are experiencing a problem with a member, or one of the staff, please send a private message regarding the matter. Do not post member or staff issues on the board or in cbox. It just creates more unnecessary drama. We’re all mature adults, it can be settled privately.

  • Be creative with your characters. Take time to fill out the application and don’t be afraid to elaborate on your character’s personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, special abilities....etc.

  • In character rivalries are fine, but please keep it at that. There will be no tolerance for out of character drama or harassment of another role player. This is a place to have fun, so let’s keep it that way.

  • All avatars must be no greater than 200x300. You are welcome to have any size lower than that; however, 200x300 is preferred since we will be using a customized mini-profile template. Please keep your signatures at a 550px width or less. Any wider and you run the risk of stretching the board.

  • Let’s talk about grammar and spelling for a moment. Most browsers let you know if a word is spelled incorrectly by underlining it with a red squiggly line. Also, if you use a Word Document not only does it have a spell check but it also comes with a grammar check. Let’s make use of these amazing features okay?

  • Cbox rules: No spamming, advertising, harassing, being rude, giving show spoilers, being overly flirty or sexual, etc. These are pretty straight forward and most of you should know them if you have ever role played before. Also take your plotting to PM's. Not everyone on the board wants to hear about what your characters have planned. It makes things awkward and prevents people from wanting to interrupt something they don't feel comfortable jumping into. Posting in the box in character can also get weird, we have an IC shoutbox for that so please make use of it. HERE is a direct link to our cbox.

  • Last but not least… please have fun. If you aren’t here to have fun, then you really shouldn’t be here. Always remember that this is just a game.
