This is an alternate universe RP, meaning that events that happen in the anime and manga have not taken place. The Sennen Items do not exist, the concepts of "yami" and "omote" do not exist either. The Yuugiou cast is sorted between students and teachers; the characters that were linked in yami/omote relationships are instead linked now as brothers, to save confusion.
This RP chronicles the events that befall the Yuugiou cast as they make their way through the hellhole known as college. Putting up with various assignments, their room mates, balancing relationships with their schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and even trips to the asylum can be some of the many things that happen to the characters.
In short, just because it's school-related doesn't mean you can't have fun with it. ♥

As of right now, you may apply for... however many characters you so desire. Just don't take on more than you can handle. In the future you may apply for an original character, but only after all of the canon characters are already taken, or if you get prior approval from both of the moderators.
Feel free to ask about any character that is not listed here, but use a little common sense - if a character is school-age, don't apply for them with the intent of them being a teacher. Likewise, some of the younger characters (i.e. Shizuka and Mokuba) may not play a very large role in this RP, seeing as how it's centered around a university with dorms and whatnot.
And, if you're feeling brave, you may apply for GX characters. ;D

1. MECHANICS. This RP, as many others do, focuses around RP logs, either through using the livejournal as a forum or through AIM/MSN logging, and a character journal. First of all, you apply for your character at domino_ooc - upon being accepted, we will expect you to make your character's journal within a week. Which leads onto...
2. ACTIVITY. If you accept a character, we'd like to see you posting at least fairly regularly; whether in character journals or as RP logs. If you're not due to a situation of your own, we'd like to know - if you cannot post for one reason or another, leave a hiatus post up at domino_ooc.
3. ACCEPTANCE. This is a community which is yaoi/yuri friendly. If you can't tolerate it, then just don't join. Evidently, the yami/omote characters being brothers obstructs the popular yami/omote pairings; thus, if you so choose, incestual pairings are also allowed - again, if you can't accept that, don't join.
4. FAIRNESS. No godmodding, no metagaming. You do this once, you get a warning. The second time, you're out. Don't know what it is? Look it up on Google.
5. INTELLIGENCE. Well, we're not asking for SUPERBRAIN stuff, here - we ask that you use a spellchecker, and that you remain roughly in character. That's about it. We like proper spelling and grammar.
6. TOLERENCE. Be friendly, people! If someone's pissing you off, talk to one of the mods. There's no need to get pissy at each other, that just causes trouble for everyone. If there's an issue where you feel that someone is not following the rules, then talk to the mods, don't try to sort it out as such for yourself. It's easier that way.
7. CONSIDERATION. When posting a log or any other type of post that contains questionable content (i.e. graphic sex) - or when posting any log, really - please use an LJ-cut. Doing this will save loading time on peoples' friends pages. Also, when posting logs, please do your best to include warnings of some kind, in case someone gets squicky reading graphic smut or things of the sort.

You're not required to use this format when posting an RP log, but it is recommended. ^^
Characters: Character One character1, Character Two character2. If there are more than three or four characters in the log, you don't have to list them all - just put "multiple" and it should be fine. And it doesn't matter how you list the characters (for all I care, you could put it in a bulleted list), just as long as you list them with a link to their journals. ^^
Rating: Self-explanitory. Also, I suggest that you put any possible warnings here - i.e. language, graphic content, things of that nature. While I don't think anyone here will be offended by a few naughty words or yaoi smut *shifty eyes*, it's best that the log be labeled as such anyway, so that people will know not to read the log during school or work or around parents and such. ^_~
Summary: Give a short summation of what happens in the log. This doesn't have to be really long - a summary you would give on Fanfiction.Net or things of that nature will do nicely.
Tags: When you post an entry, tag it with the names of the characters who appear in it (i.e. seto, marik, bakura). If there are NPCs in the log, tag it "npcs"; pets such as Marik's snake or Seto's monkey count as NPCs. This is so that if somebody wants to see all of the logs with...say, Yuugi in them, all they have to do is find his name on the tags page, click it, and boom - all of the logs with Yuugi in them will be pulled up. ^^
