Introduction
Welcome to Bleach Rebirth!
Hi, I'm Raven. I am the WebMaster / Owner of this glorious site. Anyway, let us get this Walk-Through over with, hm? Awesome..
Bleach Rebirth was initially opened up in 2011 but due to lack of muse and no time to be on, it was soon shut down. Throughout the years it became known as Bleach: Memories of the Future and then Bleach Reborn. My first Bleach RolePlay experience was on Second Life back in 2009 I believe. Good times. But that is the main influence on this community today!
Anyway, this guide is for the convenience of all our members to direct both new and old role-players to the mandatory reads and character application documents.

Role-Play Expectations
If you have already read the rules, I'm sure you can see that this is not a site for one liners. To those reading this that are one liners, I'm terribly sorry, but we do NOT like one liners. I actually feel that a story truly can't come from one or two sentences of information. We want details, length, something to go off of.

Now, we have aspects of the site that are the three F's... We of course offer a friendly community where we welcome you with open arms. We love inviting new members into our family. We make it quite easy to come in and be a part of everything.

Fairness is another aspect to this site that we would like to offer. We grade every character application equally. Meaning, staff won't be able to have completely Overpowered characters while members can not. You can start with any type of character you want with any level of strength.
The staff works in a way of 'The Knights of the Round Table' meaning Head Admins and Admins do not have more say over everything than Moderators. The titles are different simply based on tasks around the site.

Here at Bleach Rebirth, we like to have a bit of fun! We have a Skype chat where everyone is welcome. We may have games in the future via Skype featuring our characters.

Mandatory Reads
  • Be sure to thoroughly read our Rules for an understanding of how we run Bleach Rebirth.
  • Tiers and Masteries might be a good idea to read as well. They will cover how your characters will be graded and how to allocate your Masteries once you've been accepted.
Chat Box Rules
  • No Advertising. If you wish to advertise your site or affiliate with us, you can find the correct board to do so here.
  • No trolling or spamming.
  • No post/thread begging. If you want role-play threads, see our Connections board.

Character Creation
  • Our Race Guide section give an explanation of what characters types are allowed and how they're sorted as well as what they're capable of.
  • Alternatively, if you’re looking for some character ideas, check out the Connections to see if there are any Want Ads for a character you’d be interested in playing.
Members will not be able to play a 'main villain' of the site without talking with the staff first. Most villains will be NPCs that staff control and will be all plot related.

Also, please note that characters can die. For example, If you are an Arrancar and you're on a mission to take on the entire Gotei Squad alone, there is basically no way you would survive that entire battle. Don't put your characters into stupid situations and then God Mod so that they live. Sorry but it can't happen...
Furthermore, Earth is a neutral zone and as such is automatically death enabled.

Registration
Bleach Rebirth uses account per character utilizing Jcink’s sub-account feature;

Register your first account with an Out Of Character alias –updates and messages will be sent to this account. You may then register your character account, and link it to your OOC parent account like so:

  • Log out of your OOC Account and register a second account with your character’s first and last name (if they have one) with the proper capitalization (Example: John Doe).
  • Log back into your OOC Account, go to My Controls ➞ Edit Sub-Accounts, then fill in the username/password forms
  • Voila! You can now freely switch between accounts without logging in/out, using the “Switch Accounts” link within the User bar at the top of the forum.
Application
  • Look over our Profile Templates to find the application template to create your character.
    If you’ve never used a HTML application form before and you’re not sure what to do, don’t panic! Shoot the staff a message and we’ll be more than happy to assist with putting the form together.
  • Whether it’s a work-in-progress or ready to be reviewed, post your application in the Character Creation area.
  • Be sure to tag the app as a [WIP] if you’re still working on it. Once you’ve finished, post in the thread to bump the topic and remove the tag from the title/topic description!
  • Applications usually take 1 – 3 days to review, if there are any issues we will private message the OOC account you signed up with. If, for any reason, you’ve been waiting for more than 3 days for your application to be reviewed, feel free to PM a staff member and inquire into the status of the app.
Application grading is strict but you can create any kind of character you like. You're even able to pick your own rank. However, if the rest of your application doesn't live up to the expectations of that rank, you will be asked to make some changes or lower your rank a bit.
Two staff members must approve your application before you can allocate your masteries. After your masteries are approved, your abilities will be reviewed and you can begin role-playing.
Once Accepted
  • Congratulations! You can discuss ideas for plots in the Connections forum, post up a Thread Tracker to keep track of all your threads or look through the Role-play section to find Open Threads to join!

Getting Started
If you've never been on a role-play forum before, you should know that there is a posting order. Here is an example:

Character A makes a thread
Character B joins it.
Character A posts
Character B
Character A
Character C jumps in
Character B posts
Character A posts
Character C posts

If a role-player fails to post within two days, they can be skipped. If a week goes by without any activity on the thread, it will be at risk of being declared dead.
Arrancar and Humans can't post in Soul Society without a legitimate reason and means of getting there. Such as a mass attack on the Gotei or staff giving permission to co-exist with them.

Character Development
I know some of you may want the laid back aspect of the site where there is no combat or action, am I right? Regardless, every character needs some kind of development. I encourage you to plot with other members, build relationships with other characters and improve your masteries.
Developing a character doesn't have to be a tedious task. If you role-play casually, you can still earn enough money to buy new skills or upgrade your masteries. If you increase your masteries enough times, your tier will go up as well!
Alternatively, you could give your money to a friend or move them between your characters depending on which one you want to improve. If you choose, you can also just horde money and do nothing with them but that's boring!
Money
Money is used to upgrade your character in various ways. This means Bankai and Shikai abilities, Regular Attacks and Items or Accessories! Every character can upgrade!
INFORMATION:
  • You earn money for every RP post you make on BR! (This does not include the Mission Board).
  • Money can be transferred to different accounts that belong to you or you can send them to a friend in need.
  • Training is required for every new Ability you buy. This includes Shikai/Bankai, Kido andbasic Attacks. This means you must actually practice the new ability before you can actually use it correctly in battle. Training Sessions can be made on Earth, Soul Society or Hueco Mundo. It is advised to leave Training Sessions private. Send invites to some other members so you don't have people randomly jumping in to your training.
Training
So, you’re technique was approved, and now you’re looking to use it, right? Well, time to train then!
Training a technique is simple: post a thread demonstrating clear effort towards the technique. That being said, you can type as much or as little as you think is necessary. These training post can consist of any number of things: practice using the technique, honing specific skills required for the technique, attempting to use the technique in a sparring match and on occasion, mental training (like meditation) can work as well.
Once you’ve completed your posts, link the thread in the Tag Box or PM a staff member to take a look at it. Upon confirmation that the thread is completed and has been approved, the skill will be added to your character's application. Then you're all set and ready to use your new technique at any time!

Trials
As can be expected, not all the trials will have the same level of difficulty; some will be relatively easy while others will be insanely hard. This is not because the staff or the site favors certain races or people, but more because its an unfair world and if you wanted fairness, you shouldn't have attempted to interact with the rest of society.

In descending order of difficulty missions can range from:

  • One - These can barely even be called trials; there is very little chance of death and it is more about the Trial taker showing staff that they retain the ability to type up a quality Thread.
  • Two - This is where one will find a majority of trials listed. Here, one can expect death to occur, assuming they are not careful. These trials expect a certain degree for both combat and story-telling from the trial-taker, but assuming they are a skilled enough Rper, it is possible to complete them without ever having to fight.
  • Three - At this point, give up all hope of getting through this trial peacefully; this is about proving yourself top dog over whoever is conducting this trial. Either the individual conducing the trial or the trial-taker is stepping away from this confrontation alive. Try not to die.

Requirements
Each trial can involve different races, different settings, and different scenarios, so naturally, there are different requirements as to what each trial has for requirements. These will give you things like minimum rank, your opponent, and anything else you might need to be be or have.

Guidelines
Due to the sheer volumes of differences that exist between the races available, one can never expect the content of their trials to be the same. As such, it is only logical that just as the content of the trial must be different, so too must the guidelines and restrictions placed upon the trial's NPCs and event itself. It is worth noting that the higher the difficulty of the trial, the less restrictions one will find on the NPC conducting the trial.

If you have any questions that the documentation listed hasn’t answered, check out our FAQ beforehand.
