|characters & plots|
| we want to give free reign to our members so that they may do as they please with their characters! however, there are a few things that we would like to address specifically. first and foremost, all characters must be over the age of 18. be mindful of the 5 year gap when making your character older and/or younger. next, to keep things from getting out of hand, we will be placing caps and limits on certain positions. they are as follows: |
COSTUMED ROLES: 5 per park.it should be noted that characters may only work at one park and/or resort. we realize that this isn't how it may work in real life, but for the sake of our gpsl, that's what we're sticking with. caps and limits may be adjusted simply depending on the resort, ride, and park. obviously magic kingdom may need more individuals in the costume department than epcot, there will be more employees working in the gift shops on main street in magic kingdom than a gift shop in animal kingdom, etc. please try to stay as realistic as possible, and keep in mind that disney has their own set of rules as well.
when it comes to plots, we definitely plan on having tons! we are hoping to have at least one gpsl-wide plot going on per week (or at least per two weeks), though we certainly encourage members to plot individually and host their own events as well. we hope that these events will create interaction between our members and drive the community in its development. please remember: it often takes a village! if the majority aren't putting in the effort, we may change our rules in the future so that participation is mandatory since it isn't at the moment. additionally, we will try to incorporate holidays and seasons into our gpsl as much as possible as well! as previously mentioned, all we want is a friendly environment where people feel welcomed while being creative and having fun!
