Site created by Silver. Skin coded by Echo. Mini-profile code created by Miss Texas. Banner image taken by greenleaf-stock. City brush by T7-Productions. Other things and codes credited to whoever else made the things and codes.
We are a relaxed, intermediate to advanced role-play! Our lovely city of Highcrest may look normal, but I assure you – it’s not. Founded by the Silvercrest family, Highcrest is home to both humans and those we call gifted or mutants.
Some of us have extraordinary abilities, and Highcrest gives us a home where we can be ourselves. Young and dumb? Check out Silas Academy. They’ll teach you how to control your power if you have one. Be careful, though. There’s a storm looming just over the horizon.
The current season is Spring. Average temperatures fall between 30°F and 55°F during the day. Expect chilly mornings and evenings with the occasional spring shower.

As some of you can probably see, we have a new skin! The most wonderful Echo herself coded this beautiful baby! Make sure you give her a super warm thank you for all her help. A couple of different colors will be available soon, too, so be on the look out for those. We've changed the mini profile as well so your avatars will need to be updated to fit the 250x400 size. Gifs work best if they are 125x125. Thank you for sticking with Emp, everyone! You've made this place so very special!

We're up and running! Welcome to emPOWERED to anyone who joins. We're also working on getting affiliates an advertisements in. Members please help with this as I cannot do it on me own. Remember to log into each of your accounts ever day, too.
First and foremost, you must obey Jcink Terms of Service which can be found HERE. You must be thirteen (13) to join this forum.
emPOWERED is a PG-13 forum meaning no detailed explicit content may be posted. Cussing is permitted. Keep it to a minimum. Sexual content should not be graphic and should “fade to black.”
We have a one account per character policy. For every character you create, you must also register a new account.
Your account name should be that of your character’s name i.e. my character’s name is Bob Cobb. My account name would read “Bob Cobb.”
Please make sure your account name is in proper capitalization when you register your account. If your character's name is Milo Thatch, please register it as Milo Thatch. Do not use all caps.
Each character is allowed only one power i.e. Blitz manipulates electricity and only electricity. Humans will not have a power.
Avatar dimensions are 250 width x 400 height, and GIF dimensions must be at least 125x125 px. Anything larger and it will be resized.
Signature dimensions are 500 width x 250 height. Anything larger and it will be resized.
You may not role-play your character until your biography has been moved to an Accepted board.
The character limit is at 10. However, there are in character posting requirements that must be met before you make a new character. Each time the post requirement increases, it is only the most recently made character that must meet the requirement:
To make character #2, you must have at least 5 in character posts with your first character.
To make characters #3-#5, you must have at least 10 in character posts with your most recently made character.
To make characters #6-#10, you must have at least 20 in character posts with your most recently made character.
Remember, these rules may change at any time. Any changes will be announced via the Announcement board.
In Character Information »
Spelling and grammar are very important. We understand mistakes happen. Try re-reading your posts to eliminate as many errors as possible.
While we do not have a word count, it is nice to have a good post to reply to. You may not post one-liners. That is impossible to reply to. I am talking about a good paragraph or so at the least.
You are to write in the third person past tense. i.e. he laughed, she cried, they sang. First person is not allowed i.e. I cried, I walked, I ran.
You may not use yourself or a random person off of Google as a play-by. Please find an actor, actress, or model to play your character. Anime characters are not accepted, only real people.
God-Moding is not tolerated. Power-Playing is only allowed with the consent of each character's owner.
We do allow liquid time; however, keep in mind your character’s timeline and only enter as many as you can handle.
Out of Character Manners »
Respect everyone on the site. This includes staff, members, and guests.
Keep arguments private and do not start drama in the cbox. If you are having a problem with another board member, PM that member and try to work it out. If a peaceful agreement cannot be reached, talk to one of the staff members.
Do not bump old threads whether they be IC or OOC. If it is a month old or more, chances are it is dead.
Remember: this board was created with the sole purpose of having fun. So… Have fun darn it all!
