The EcchiDreams Starters Pack
The all in one comprehensive guide for new dreamers
Firstly; thank you for registering to EcchiDreams and welcome to our humble community. We want to help you get started right away and so we've cobbled together a starting pack that should point you in the right direction. EcchiDreams is made up of all kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds. It is also more than just a roleplaying site, it's a community, which we encourage you to take part in. Please be aware, however, that the terms of service are enforced on this site. Please make sure you've read them.
We can all understand how EcchiDreams can be a little overwhelming at first, which is why I want to let you know that if you want any help, or have any questions on something you're stuck on, please don't hesitate in asking. The staff are extremely willing to help if you should need it (You can find us easily as we all have Purple names), although that said the community is full of epic dreamers who are more than happy to help out new people as well, which is part of what makes EcchiDreams as awesome as it is.
Roleplaying Quick Start
If you're looking at starting to roleplay right away, then there are a few things you can do to improve your chances of finding someone to roleplay with, and whilst I'm sure you'll be fine, I've got a quick start guide for you.
Complete your profile. Fill out a Roleplayer Preferences form; to let others know what your preferences are. If you're into private roleplaying (Not publicly on the forums, but on EcchiChat (The chat bar) or by EcchiTexts, then consider letting people know. You can also use that link to find roleplayers that you might want to roleplay with. If you're comfortable with public roleplaying, we have many roleplays created by the fellow Dreamers that you can access. Remember; if you post around on the forums, say play in forum games and what have you, consider putting a link to your preferences in your signature for maximum exposure. If you're stuck for what the roleplay options are, and/or how to get started take a look at our Roleplaying Guides. If you need advice on starting your roleplay, or you're looking for feedback on your current roleplay, or want to talk about public roleplaying in general, then this is the spot for you. Community Forums
We have several forums on the community for you to discuss a variety of topics, here is a good selection from our General forums area:
Our General Interests Lounge has areas for a variety of topics; if something interests you and doesn’t fit into any of the other forums then this is a good place to post it. Anime, Hentai and Manga. As you can imagine this is for all that and stuff like drawn comics. Either to discuss or to share with the community. The Creative Corner is for creative people to share their work with the community. This section is for posting your drawings and sketches, things you've done in photoshop or written fanfictions, sex stories or erotica’s, and whatnot. Debates and Politics could be our most controversial area, not sure if it’s for the faint-hearted. Assertions without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. Our Forum Games area is… Well, it’s our ‘post to play’ Forum Games. Stuff as simple as “Count to 1,000,000” or as complicated as finding a certain picture. Gadgets and Geeks is a good place to talk about what tech things you have or want, or maybe something sciency you want to share with the community. Personal Stories is an area where you can share stories of your day or even your life with the community. Think of it as a blog… But on a forum. Random Chit Chat, if you just want to start a random topic or conversation; try here. Sex and Relationships are for anything like openly talking about fetishes either in real life or fantasy or for discussing and getting advice on relationship issues. Video Games - Do you want to discuss the latest computer or console game to come out? Discuss or get help with your favourite game? Post here and git gud. Account Control
For account control please check out the following.
To be in control of your account, consider taking a look at our Account Control Guides. If you want to know more about your profile options there are also a few guides here. Hot Tips
Join our Discord Server! If you think you're going to be away for a short period, consider letting people know via Leave of Absence as opposed to leaving a status as these can be buried under all the likes and things that I'm sure you'll be getting, whereas a Leave of Absence features prominently on your profile. The club section has more than just roleplay clubs in it. They also have fan clubs, community-specific clubs and all sorts in there. EcchiCredits is a contribution-based currency only applicable here on EcchiDreams, and cannot be bought, sold or otherwise traded for real cash/tangible items. You earn them by contributing to EcchiDreams, such as making posts, threads and content that people react to, take part in, and such. Reporting bugs. And so on. They can then be traded for things on this site or used to buy things from the EcchiStore. You can also get premium membership which only accepts EcchiCredits, as we don't accept real money. Staying out of Trouble
We don't want to give out warnings, and one would hope that you don't want to get into trouble. Yet we repeatedly see the same rules being broken, and the number one excuse is: "I didn't know it was against the rules." Despite being indicated in the Terms of Service. This tells me that people don't read them and I get it. It's boring. I know. But I highly recommend reading them to stay out of trouble. Needless to say here are three commonly broken rules so that you can avoid breaking them. You can see the specific sections by clicking on the "Reveal hidden content" boxes.
We are quite lenient as to what you can post, for example, we try to stick to a non-censorious approach (See Section 15) but... As @Aura would say:
"What goes around comes around, so try to be friendly, patient and understanding. While some things may not be against the rules, you're still dealing with other people here. If you're acting rude, you're probably not going to get whatever it is you're looking for."
Section 9 of the Terms of Service (Duplicate Accounting)
There is a lot of potential abuse (That we have seen carried out in the past) that can be prevented by having a strict one account per person limit. Before my administration, we saw one person running several accounts which were used to swing poll votes to their favour, we also saw nasty harassment campaigns and people scamming/catfishing the more vulnerable Dreamers on the site. The previous administrator made this a rule that carried an instant ban to both accounts, without warning. I am a little bit fairer than that. I give people who, when caught, the fair chance to throw their hands up, admit fault, and receive a lesser punishment. But the secondary account always gets banned.
Even staff are beholden to this rule, with exception to diagnostic/test/illustrative accounts in which case the staff will clearly label this in the About Me section of the profile within 10 minutes of creating the account, and it will always be deleted (as with all of its posts, content and so on) after its use has expired.
Section 14 of the Terms of Service (Advertising, Spam and Disallowed Links)
You are not allowed to insert content such as posts, statuses, signatures and so on that advertise a commercial service or product. You're also not allowed to put up your email address, messenger invites, Skype addresses, Discord addresses and the like for private, commercial or personal services. Text and/or images that contain links and URL's to other sites are allowed providing that the link is in context to the conversation.
Section 18 of the Terms of Service
Perhaps the most broken rule on this site, because there is this common misconception that NSFW Lolicon/Shotacon content (Images that depicts or appears to depict a cartoon/drawn/sketch/pseudo-photograph of a minor (under 18) in sexual situations or nude" is legal. This isn't true, and it is in fact, illegal. We've discussed this before, and we've even posted up a handy flowchart to help you.
If you have any ideas on how we can improve our site we're very happy to hear them, drop us a suggestion.

As the name suggest, you can post any unrelated post in this club here. Either its announcement of LoA or even small chat. Don't be stranger, speak up!

I'll go foist!
Utopia inspired by Battle Royale, Deadman Wonderland and Poppy
I've wanted to create a story about a fucked up system for a really long time, but a primary concern of mine was that I felt like it could be taken as me trying to make a statement instead of just creating a work of fiction. With reflection, I've come to the conclusion that I might be making more of a statement than I realize. My B.
The idea is a world set in something of a post-post-apocalypse, meaning what was left of humanity came together, thrived and at this point are doing generally pretty fucking well for themselves, until the age-old enemies started to rear their heads again. Religion. Government. Systems created to control and maintain order, to shape humanity and behaviors in the image of those pulling the strings, until a new system is forced into place and such ancient concepts are all but abolished. People begin to live in a living dream world. Utopia.
But this isn't meant to be a "fight the man" story. This isn't an anti religion or government story, even though that is centric to the world and plot. This is a story that's meant to be about inevitability, about the universe always seeming to come full circle and about existential dread. About how our consciousness of self makes our mortality our greatest enemy as we can not comprehend oblivion after existence. About the fragility of the human mind. About how there is no inherent good or evil in the grand scheme of things and the moral inhibitions associated with each are fabrications of our own fears of the great unknown.
Many of the people in the world of Utopia have had such restraints removed, had their minds freed and as a result, can live in absolute bliss, but there are some who still believe in the old ways, who remember them, maybe. These people are treated as heretics and are punished in absolutely horrific ways, often for the amusement of the unwittingly obedient masses.
Serenity's reign must end.
The format to adhere to for creating your character is as follows:
Constitution: (How psychologically fragile are you?)
Mental Flaws: (Include fears, regrets, etc)
Page of Memory: (A summary of your character's life that lead them to this point. Were they born in Silent Hill? Are they in The Order? What did they do to end up in Silent Hill?)
(Insert image of character)
These are to be posted here individually. If any edits are necessary I will point them out. Don't take too many liberties, especially if you decide you want your character to have history with a Canon character.
