Okay, now that we've settled into what seems to be a manic fascination with hybrids, the rules are now going to be laid down on what you CAN and CAN NOT do with Vizards and Arrancar.

Vizards:
(More information on how to play Vizards properly for this RP will be made in the "True Vizard" Prestige Class thread via updates)

*With the exception of those that took the time to register their Vizards in the Hybrid Registration thread, ALL REGULAR PLAYERS are now restricted to having ONE recurring Vizard at a time in their plot. The Vizards are a very SMALL organization when compared to the Gotei, and as such their numbers have to be accurately reflected in the fiction you guys put out for continuity reasons.

*ALL Vizards HAVE to be part of the Army of Masks (Those with exceptions MUST speak to wind.) In this RP, Vizards are virtually unable to leave the Army of Masks without the permission of their troop leader. Trying to go against their will and ceding from the Army will cause Vizard characters to perish; NO EXCEPTIONS.

*Vizards SHOULD NEVER reveal their true names and their faces to anyone that is not a Vizard. The whole purpose of wearing masks and going by aliases is to maintain their undercover status wherever they've been assigned. If you're Vizard(s) have done this already, please, please, please, think twice about going back and touching up for this plot detail.

*Vizards, depending on their troop and specific orders, WILL NOT engage in violent attacks. This also blows their cover much like the last point. DO NOT have your Vizards "blow crap up" as it really wouldn't make all that much sense (unless maybe, you're in the living world) at this point in the plot.

*NOT ALL Vizards are sadistic killers. Please remind yourself from time to time that while all Vizards are fairly cunning and intellectually superior to the common Shinigami, not all lust for blood and guts and some even frown on direct combat.

NOTE: If someone gives away the identity of a Vizard to another player without the permission of the Vizard in question, they are automatically kicked out of the RPG permanently.

One does not have any right to let anyone know about a secret that should be easily kept and that serves to make the roleplay much more fun and intriguing than without. This policy goes into effect immediately.

*whistles*

As an addendum to the regulation posted above, I want to make sure you guys all understand the difference between "board scouting" and "point pulling."

When you board scout a player, you're essentially tailing someone solely using the boards or chat rooms as your main evidence for someone being a Vizard. If you use this as evidence in a case to court-martial a suspected Shinigami-Vizard double agent, it will immediately be thrown out.

However when you pull points from a person's fiction that just don't seem to add up, and this will become clearer when the Vizard PrC sheet is placed out for the public during SF, then that can be used as substantial grounds against someone in a court-martial.

I know it's easy to get carried away and immediately cap on a Vizard player, and there are a few people in here that I thought knew better (like Wind said), but went ahead and breached this fourth dimension. Fortunately this situation sort of played into the Vizard's hands (kinda) and can easily be remedied. Though... I'm not sure if future situations can be cleaned up very easily.

Please, not only for those in the Kidoushuu in the upcoming Sounding Field event, but for all players in general: exercise caution when you "board scout" and "point pull." I really would hate it if this flared up again.

Arrancar:

*Unlike Vizards, there is NO predetermined limit to how many you can have in your fiction. However, please use common sense and don't try to raise an army, there's already one in the RP's main canon plot.

*Yes, attempting to partner your Arrancar up with an existing army to invade Soul Society will end in either your Arrancar being brainwashed or eaten as dessert.

*Arrancar, like the Vizards, are MUCH MORE POWERFUL than their counterparts in the actual Bleach manga. Unless you are a seated officer at the very least, it's recommended that you don't even dabble with both types until you have an officer commission in your respective Division.

NPC Versions of Hybrids: Approach wind, and he'll see if it makes sense. If it does, he'll either generate and roleplay one with you, or just slap a name and stats together and let you do what you want with him. Same rule with the Vizards apply: ONLY ONE, and no more.

A correction/update to the Hybrid Rules concerning Vizard NPC Rules, since this thread seems to be outdated and because this topic was brought up recently regarding making a Vizard NPC.

*With the exception of those that took the time to register their Vizards in the Hybrid Registration thread, ALL REGULAR PLAYERS are now restricted to having ONE recurring Vizard at a time in their plot. The Vizards are a very SMALL organization when compared to the Gotei, and as such their numbers have to be accurately reflected in the fiction you guys put out for continuity reasons.
Because the Hybrid Registration thread has been locked for some time, any non-vizard players wishing to create Vizard NPC(s) MUST contact a vizard from the Army of Masks, either through private messages or IM and have it be approved. Otherwise, the said NPC vizard(s) will be hunted down and killed mercilessly without exception. That said, we will give you a basic guideline of roleplaying a vizard, as well as keep an eye on that vizard NPC(s) to make sure it does abide by the vizard code. This applies to all recurring and nonrecurring vizard NPCs.

Additionally, contact Vizard Sturmvogel or Vizard Fledermaus if you have any questions. Those two vizards will be our PRs.
