  • About Us
    World of Remnant is an AU, post-Volume 3 roleplay. Opened in February of 2016, World of Remnant diverges from the Volume 3 storyline around the Fall of Beacon, with storyline changes that drive our site in a different direction. We constantly update with new canons as they are revealed in the RWBY series, as well as lore updates as we learn more about Remnant's world. We boast an expanded lore and a dedicated administrative team that gives depth to Remnant for a roleplay perspective.

    With an 18+ community, World of Remnant boasts an atmosphere of 'quality over quantity' in our apps, posts, and plots; we have no word count, though it is expected that members will post healthy and thorough posts without being locked down by the dreaded 'word count' of their post. With a simplified combat system that uses no stats, World of Remnant remains a story-focused, alternate-universe timeline with RWBY canons and a plethora of original characters.

    Updates
    06.16.2018: We've added more than a few new things as of the past day or so! Make sure you check out the Advertising Contest, and while you're at it, take a look at our latest Site Newsletter. The newsletter has a lot of information that was added, so if you haven't checked it out, make sure you do so you're up to date on things!

    06.07.2018: After much long and arduous work, World of Remnant has finally revealed its newest skin, called Let's Just Live. The new skin is part of a fresher, more advanced layout compared to our old layout, while still retaining the readability and contrast our other layouts were well-known for. There are three more skins planned for the next series: This Life Is Mine, featuring Weiss Schnee, Like Morning Follows Night featuring Blake, and Armed And Ready featuring Yang. We do not have any tentative release dates for these upcoming skins, but stay tuned for them regardless!

    Current Time
    Remnant's current month is
    SEPTEMBER, YEAR 3
    The second term has begun at all academies, and after a short break between terms, students are gearing up to attend the 41st Vytal Festival. This year, it is hosted on the neutral island of Vytal, as opposed to being hosted in one of the four Kingdoms.

World of Remnant: Rules
01: Respect. It's expected that you're a respectful person if you choose to join World of Remnant. Everybody has their opinions, their likes and dislikes; don't diss them. Things like racism, sexism, or other forms of discrimination, regardless of whether they are in a joking manner or not, will not be tolerated. Everybody here has the right to a safe, accepting environment. Members found in violation of this will be subject to severe consequences. Be respectful. Be an adult.

02: Harassment. It's a simple thing -- don't harass people repeatedly for things. World of Remnant is not a rapid-fire site, and while we do have activity requirements, members and staff alike have lives. Don't harass people to post for you (within reason -- if it's been a month or longer, by all means, remind them, because that's not fair to you as a player). Don't harass the staff to review your stuff. We're a busy bunch, and it takes coordination. However, if it has been more than 3 days and you have not received a reply or a review for your application, you may PM Fireseeker or Aya to get it done. All feedback/review questions are to be kept in site PM. This allows us to have a record and in case another staff needs to take over the application process of your character. DO NOT DM or tag staff members on Discord about applications.

03: Drama. Drama doesn't belong in the OOC community, period. Don't argue with other members, don't be judgemental, and most of all, don't be cliquey! Again, we expect everyone to be mature adults. That being said, sometimes it's hard to approach someone who's been causing you issues. Regardless of whether this person is a member or a staff member, if this happens, please contact an administrator! We're here to help, and that's what we want to do. If someone's rude to you, or making you uncomfortable, tell us! We'll absolutely take your concerns into consideration, and if need be, we'll deal with it.

04: Character Limits. We don't have a character limit here, and we don't do character bans (you know, that thing where you have too many females, so you don't allow more females, or you have too many faunus, so you make people play humans). We encourage people to spread their characters around, of course, but if you only want to make female students at Haven Academy, then by all means, do it. However, remember that you do have to stay active with your characters. Don't stretch yourself too thin on plots and leave other people in the dust. It's not cool.

05: Applications. Our application format is separated into three parts, all of which are handled separately. First, you post your character application; this includes your character's basic details, appearance, personality, and history. You may have a maximum of one of these applications pending at any given time, unless given special staff permission. If you have 3 or more characters, you must wait a minimum of 1 day before posting a new application. If you have 5 or more characters, you must wait at least 3 days before posting a new one. This time frame applies from the day your application is accepted, not the day you posted it. Why? This is to help staff keep up with applications more smoothly, and allow newer members to get their applications through promptly without being slowed down by members who already have characters they can use on-site. Once your regular application is accepted, you are free to start roleplaying!

After you've completed your regular application, you can work on your Combat Application, which includes your weapon and semblance. Like before, you can only have one of these pending at any given time, and the same rules apply above with posting applications; if you have 3 or more accepted, you must wait 1 day before posting a new one, and if you have 5 or more, you must wait 3 days.

Once those are both accepted, you can work on your Combat Page, which covers your combat abilities and any upgrades you choose to buy using your Lien.

06: Account Registration. Register with your OOC account first. This is a requirement. If you don't, you will be asked to change it; you can change your name via the user CP. Your OOC account is used for everything -- this means your applications, your claims, PMs, and everything is posted with your OOC account, always. Do not post any of these things with your character account, ever. Use your OOC. Always.

After, and ONLY after, your character is accepted, you may register your character account. You can do this by going to your sub-account and registering a new account from there. If you register your character account before your character is accepted, your account will be immediately deleted without warning.

07: Names. Character names must follow the RWBY OC Rules given by Monty Oum. Please list the meaning(s) for your character's name(s) in the Notes section of your character application, to make it easy for staff. Team names must also follow this rule. To make it easier, either the first or last name must be closely related to a colour. For team letters, the first letter is always the leader, and in choosing your letter, you may use the first letter of either the first or last name.

08: Posting & Literacy. We are an intermediate roleplaying site. We expect our members to have decent basic grammar, spelling, and capitalization; this is regardless of whether English is your first, second, fifth, or tenth language. Your writing must be at least understandable. We're not going to grammar nazi you or act like the spell-check police, but we will notify you if we feel you're not up to the standards of our site. If you're not sure, check out some of the accepted applications -- that will give you a (general) idea of what we're looking for.

And most of all, we can't stress this more, especially in applications. Be concise. The simpler, the better sometimes! Remember, too much detail can be just as problematic, if not more so, than not having enough detail!

09: Activity. Life happens, and we get it. It happens to the best of people! That being said, we also understand that it's not fair to hold up plots or positions when other people might want them as well. Our activity requirements are simple. Characters must post, at a minimum, twice a month.

10: Absence Threads. In accordance with the above rule, whenever possible, absence threads are mandatory. If you know something's going to come up, or you've found you're pretty busy and not sure when it's going to slow down, let us know! We're not going to hold you responsible for having life flush you down the toilet. It happens to the best of us. Try to keep your thread updated every couple of weeks, if possible. If you're gone for more than a month on a single absence (and you haven't said you'd be gone that long), then we reserve the right to archive your stuff and open your positions up.

Characters that are archived, unless otherwise decided by the affected player(s), will be considered deceased IC. Player(s) who are involved with those characters reserve the right to open the position to another player, and re-adopt the plot(s) they had. This is to let players who are active still keep rolling with the plots they've got in the event someone drops. After your character is archived, you have one week to re-claim them, or they are considered reopened / deceased (depending on circumstance).

11:Team Assignments. Team assignments are conducted in two ways: you have the choice of making your own team, or joining an existing team. If you choose to make your own team, you must decide your character's team name in the application. (If you change your mind later, you're free to request it to be changed). Staff recommends joining existing teams for quicker plots. However, when joining an existing team, please make sure to contact the current member(s) of the team in case there is anything you need to know.

12: Advertising. Don't advertise other sites via PM, period. Other sites may not be talked about in the chatbox, with the exception of our sister sites. That being said, try to refrain from talking too much about other sites. Mentioning them by name is fine (including dead sites), but we're here to be part of World of Remnant, not other sites. If you're wanting to advertise, use the proper forums for it, period.

13: Lore. We use a mixture of custom and canon lore available on the site. Lore posted in our lore thread becomes site canon; in the event that some aspects are contradicted by future RWBY volumes or other mediums (such as podcasts, Twitter, or the RoosterTeeth website), the lore present on-site may be modified, or it may be left as site canon, depending on the severity. Changes like this will be communicated with site members when they are made.

14: Face Claims. Face claims are mandatory. They are limited to artwork or animation only. You may only use a claim from an existing medium, and you may not use custom fan-art unless it is of your own design or specifically commissioned by you. You must also claim your claims in the Face Claims thread; failure to do so means that if someone else reserves or claims your face, you will be asked to change yours. No two characters may have the same face (except in the event of twins, which is decided upon by players at creation). Mediums that have similar or 'alternate' versions (the Fate-verse is notorious for this) may result in claims that cover a number of characters considered 'too similar' to be different (i.e. Saber Arturia and Saber Nero).

15: Graphics & Images. The application size is 250 pixels by 450 pixels -- please make sure your images are the right size, or it makes the template look funky. The default avatar size is 250x450, and the same applies. Signatures are disabled for the site, and will not appear. Posted images may be no wider than 500 pixels, and no higher than 800 pixels. If you don't have a means to resize an image, contact a staff member or ask in the cbox; we're more than happy to help you with that! Posted GIFs may not be any larger than 400 x 200 pixels. Try to refrain from using too many. Gifs are not allowed as avatars, both on-site or in the cbox.

Secondly, do not use Imgur as your host. It is against Imgur's Terms of Service to hotlink (and, at times, Jcink sites have been blacklisted for it). Your account may be deleted by them. We recommend Postimage as an alternative; it's simple, reliable, and the like. For those of you whose Photobucket accounts have also been nerfed, we also recommend Postimage!

16: Rating. We are an 18+ only forum. This means that our members are above the age of 18. Members under that age are not allowed. If you are caught, you will be banned without question. At times, our content may not be suitable for viewers under the age of 18. Our content is rated 3-2-3, which is fairly flexible; however, in terms of sexual content, we ask that anything explicit either be glossed over, or fade-to-black if possible. Some description is allowed, but keep it classy. Explicit detail is prohibited.

World of Remnant: IC Box Rules
01: General. All general rules apply in the cbox. Misconduct on the part of members will be handled the same, and poor behaviour from players will not be tolerated.

02: IC Relation. While the IC box shouldn't ever, in any capacity, replace posting, it is up to players to determine whether an IC event affects the roleplay at all. Small interactions or developments between characters are fine, but large-scale developments should be limited to threads.

03: Characters. The IC box may only be used by characters whose profile has been accepted. Members who consistently abuse this may be subject to on-site consequences.

04: Posting. The IC cbox shall never, ever, under any circumstances, be a replacement for posting IC. Members seen frequenting the IC box without posting may be temporarily banned from using the IC box. Further misuse may result in permanent bans from the IC box. Consistent, repeated misuse by multiple members may result in the IC box being removed for all members.
