Role Play Guides - How to avoid Godmoding

In order to ensure good Role Playing, there are some basic Role Play rules that have to be followed. These guides give a good overview about Godmoding. (Click on the links to get to the guides)

Types of Godmoding
Read on for specifics about the different types of godmoding and why they make for bad roleplay.

Godmodding is godmoding specific to character creation, skills, and certain situations (e.g., combat).
Powerplaying is godmoding by controlling another roleplayer’s character without permission.
Metagaming is godmoding specific to the use of OOC knowledge in roleplayed actions, behaviors, thoughts.
Retconning is godmoding specific to erasure or alteration of past events.

Remember, these guides are only guides for casual Role Playing and not everything must apply to this Role Play, however, please ask before you do something that could be godmoding. Godmodding is against the Club rules and could lead to warnings and eventual banning.
