Can we RP in a different setting yet related to the topic (ex: in "Shinra News", roleplaying as the cameraman or a woman watching the news ; in "Wutai RP", rp as someone who lives in Corel but whose path will lead to Wutai?). Can the mods/DM delete or edit a post, so that it doesn't ruin the direction of the RP, so that it may perform a better conveyance?
This will be my first time roleplaying, so I'm completely clueless to the inherent rules.
From my experience the answers to your questions goes at follows: yes at first we all start with one character accept sometimes the DM, no unless the owner of the character or DM says you can stick to your own characters, that is usually allowed but as this is a small rp it os better to have all the characters at least start in the same area and lastly I guess they could but most of the time they will only step in and edit or delete a post of yours if you have been god modding. As rps can go anywhere (which is what I like about them) editing to change the rps direction isn't really done.
