Help Topic: Fade-to-black

Category: Roleplay

Sometimes you may want a roleplay scene to 'Fade to Black' for
whatever reason.

Some possible reasons:
1. The scene contains characters being sexually intimate.
2. You need to quit, but your character wouldn't just leave,
and only one other person is involved in the roleplay.
3. The content of the story is uncomfortable to you and you
don't want to write it out.

If you want to FTB, please use the FTB command. This will open
some dialogue with guiding questions and a short back-and-forth
that will allow you to summarize IC events with the player behind
the other character. In the end, it will send this neat summary
to your log.

ftb <character>
ftb summary <write an emote>
ftb pregnancy < yes | no >
ftb wounds <integer of damage, 500-2000> of
< blunt | cutting > on <body part>
ftb submit

After fading a scene to black, you can continue playing about
something else or you can quit.

For a FTB, you can add possible mechanical outcomes to the
situation such as wounds or potential pregnancy.

The person instigating the FTB can put down initial values for
these outcomes, but the person accepting it will get to modify
those values. There are, however, some coded limits to those

If 'pregnancy' is an impossibility from the instigating side,
you cannot make it a possibility. You cannot add wounds that
were not originally stipulated, you can only nullify them.

ftb nullify < pregnancy | wounds >
ftb accept <write an emote>
