Characters, Professions, Jobs & Tames

Allowed Characters

  1. Existing characters: Redstone RP operates in the same universe as other Wild West RP servers, meaning that if you have played a character in another GSRP style community, you may bring that character here so long as that character fits the following guidelines:
    1. Your character is still alive.
    2. Your character has become perma-dead in the past, but can make a reasonable case for stating that their death was either faked, mistaken or otherwise didn't happen.
    3. Your character did not become perma-dead in a public or documented manner such as documented execution by law enforcement, public death with witnesses or other perma-death that could have a serious provable case made for why it was definitely final.
  2. New Characters: You may roll into Redstone County as any new character you'd like, provided it passes the application process.

Character Rerolls

  1. Limit of 2 re-rolls per season.
  2. You may re-roll a character no sooner than 3 weeks from the time of character approval.
  3. Rerolling as the child/kin of your own Redstone RP character is forbidden.
  4. If your character becomes perma-dead during RP (meaning you didn't just drown them in the lake and call it perma-death), then you cannot be denied a new character based on the 2-re-rolls per season rule, however your character application will still be subject to approval by staff.

Mid-Season Profession Rerolls

  1. You may reroll your profession 1 time mid-season
  2. Mid-season profession re-rolls will not be accepted before the 4th week of the season.

    4. "Muffin Crafting"
      • Every good cook knows the ways to beat the system on custom cooking recipes. Please do not utilize the most convenient ingredients to create foods. Be realistic. Beasting out a chicken pot pie that magically only uses 50 cream to cook is not good RP and it is not what is best for the Redstone County in general.
