I'm not really good at this roleplay thing, but I do have ground rules: 1) I never play with Caribou, Yaks, or especially robots. The caribou thing is for "personal reasons", but I'm perfectly okay with the rest of the genus, including but not limited to elk, moose, and even deer (I LOVE deer, just wanna be clear), but never caribou. As for Yaks, I simply refuse to accept their company; bison are okay, donkeys are fine, no Yaks. Finally, I never trust robots. 2) I also refuse to play second string antagonist/henceman; if I'm not at least a major arc villain leading up to a bigger bad, then it just won't work with me. 3) if I'm forced into playing a Snow White morality (as in, a pure good character with no shades of grey, except as a canon character), it's strictly out and I'll firmly refuse without a second thought.
These are my terms, and I will not back down from them. If you can meet these requests, we're cool.
