Le Jardin Mystique

IC: In Character (Virtual mode -the character being played)
OOC: Out of Character (Real Life mode -the player behind the character)
RL: Real Life (Life outside the domain of the MUCK)

This policy is discussed in the Acceptable Use Policy, but is expanded here in order to clarify what is meant by ageplay and the limitations and allowances this policy affords.

By connecting to Le Jardin Mystique, you agree you will not represent yourself as under the legal age. This can sometimes be confusing, but what it means is even during a scene or RP session, your character may not be under the age of 18. You can appear to be younger, or can costume in whatever style of clothing or apparel you feel fit to wear, but you must always represent yourself as over the age of 18. For example, you may put in your character description, "appears to be 16 years old" or "looks 16 years of age," but you may not put in, "is 16 years of age" or "a 16 year old."

The distinction here is that you can appear to be a certain age, but are not that age. Likewise, shape shifting into an infant form is not against this policy so long as it appears you are and infant and in fact do not represent yourself as being an infant in age.

Failure to abide by this policy has serious ramifications as infractions of this policy can lead to legal trouble for the MUCK administrators and the players who break this policy. Thus, the following schedule of punishments applies:

  1. First offense: Verbal warning from a wiz and @newpasswording the character for not more than 30 days
  2. Second offense: @toading of the character

Furthermore, if law enforcement officials seek our cooperation, they are likely to receive it.
