Vast Horizon Policies
Before we get started, staff wishes to give this disclaimer. Vast Horizon is a game with adult themes. We have no issues with those wishing to write out their sex scenes. However, there are a few things we expect from those wishing to write these scenes.
Sex is a normal part of life. In this game though, it is absolutely not to be forced on any person. Whether or not a person wishes to RP a full sex scene is entirely up to the individual behind the keyboard. Here are a few suggestions. If you are not into writing elaborate sex scenes, please do an oocsay to let somebody know the types of scenes you will and will not write out during the course of your RP fling or relationship. The person behind the other keyboard simply will not know what you are comfortable writing if you don't speak up. Finally, let somebody know if you are under the age of eighteen and simply cannot write this sort of scene. Adults be careful so that you aren't engaging in writing explicit scenes with an underage person.
This goes both ways, if you are one who wishes to write these scenes, make sure the person you are doing this with is comfortable before diving in and writing. Having a good RP understanding will make things go more smoothly for all involved.
What two people do in the privacy of their ship or place of dwelling is their business. However, unconcernedly sex will not be tolerated here. You never know who is behind the keyboard and what their triggers are. Therefore, a rape story line will never be approved by the staff. If you do this and we catch you, it will be an automatic ban from our server.
Basically, just be smart and do not try pushing somebody into writing scenes they don't wish to write. At the end of the day, this is just a game and there is no need to make others uncomfortable. Fade to black works nicely after a good cuddle scene if you are uncertain as to what the partner wants to write or their age.
If you need to send us a support ticket concerning possible sexual misconduct against your character, please give us date, possible time and location that it happened. We would attempt to prove this really happened before taking action. Staff wants everyone to be comfortable here and we will do our best to make sure rules are followed. But we are not going to just jump the gun and assume the worst happened either.
Please do not send in support tickets complaining that Fran and Simon are talking about sex or BDSM too much in front of you, and other such frivolous matters. This being a game with adult themes staff will not be policing idle conversations. The above is an example but we hope you get our meaning here. Alternatively, those who enjoy such discussions, be respectful of those who do not. Staff understands this could make for a good drama RP argument, handle it as you will. Just don't try to force others into discussions they OOCly do not want to be in.
Lastly, we are not giving you these tips to encourage or discourage you from writing your sex scenes. We just want to make sure that everybody can feel comfortable playing this game and giving you all possible alternatives is part of how we do that. We want those who enjoy writing more intimate scenes to feel comfortable as well as those who do not.
