Welcome to RP World. If you continue to browse and use this website, you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use, which govern RP World’s relationship with you in relation to this website. If you disagree with any part of these terms and conditions, please do not use our website.
You represent that you are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms and Conditions and that you are 18 years of age or older.
The term ‘this website’ refers to rpworldgroup.org. The term 'RP World' refers to the owner of this website. The term 'you' refers to the user or viewer of this website.
The use of this website is subject to the following terms:
The content of the pages of this website is for your general reading only. The story line(s), bio(s), and character name(s) is owned by the individual author(s), of the story lines. The content of the pages are subject to change without notice.
Story lines (SL) created by more than one person will be considered jointly owned unless otherwise indicated in writing. People who enter an active or ongoing SL or an SL created by another person have no ownership rights in any part of that SL. No part of their contribution to said SL will be deleted upon leaving. The characters are owned by the creator, regardless of who writes the character, unless otherwise indicated in writing. All characters are part of the SL for purposes of said SL, but upon the author leaving, for purposes of continuing an ongoing SL, the character will be written out of the SL by the remaining character(s) so the integrity of the SL will not be affected. Once the character is effectively written out of the SL, no future reference will be made to that character's name.
All original SLs owned by the author character will be deleted from this website. RP World will not save it, so if you want your work, save it yourself. The exception to this is any work posted as part of a continuing SL that you do not own.
Jointly owned work will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If all parties agree to the continuation of the SL in writing, it will remain on this website. If one party disagrees, it will all be deleted.
