Rules and FAQ's

Some points for people new to Angel Falls:

Q: What is Angel Falls (AF) ?

A: Angel Falls is a fictional city that exists on DA as a common setting for our characters to meet and interact. It is Metropolis, Gotham City, Los Angeles, New York, and Shermer, Illinois all rolled into one. This group exists to create a common setting that is used for telling stories involving the characters that live there. The primary focus of this group is storytelling via visual art and text stories.


Q: Who can join Angel Falls (AF) ?

A: Any adult (18+) who wants to work with other people to share art and stories featuring a mix of characters.


Q: How do I join Angel Falls?

A: It is a 3-step process, more or less.
-First, join the group using the "Join This Group" button at the top right of the main group page.

-Second, Please Check the Three Roster Groups
HERO Angel Falls Superhero Roster by SLO by Shuma-Gorath
WILDCARD Angel Falls Wild Card Roster By SLO by Shuma-Gorath
VILLAIN Angel Falls Villain Roster By SLO by Shuma-Gorath
and leave a message in the appropriate Roster Group with your Character(s) names. Active characters will be added to the appropriate Roster Group by the Moderators.

-Third, start submitting and taking part in the group. Pictures, text, commissions, fan art, comments, ideas, anything that is related to the Angel Falls setting. For purposes of introducing new characters, we allow a maximum of three (3) generic character pictures. After that, all submissions must include some sort of content specifically relating to Angel Falls. This can be done visually in a picture or in the text description or story accompanying it. It is important that submissions be identified as Angel Falls related to ensure they are accepted into the gallery.

That's pretty much it, so join up and join the insanity that is Angel Falls.


Q: What kind of submissions does Angel Falls accept?

A: Pictures, stories, anything that DA allows and that conforms to their Terms of Service.


Q: How do I submit something to Angel Falls?

A: Submissions with Angel Falls [AF] content should be submitted to the AF gallery once you have joined the group. When you submit art or stories to your DA gallery, select the “Submit to My Groups” option and select Angel Falls. Moderators will review it for AF relevance then approve it.


Q: Where are the submissions to AF located?

A: In this groups’s featured gallery or fave folders. Complete story arcs are collected in subfolders for easier reading.


Q: How long does it take for my submissions to be approved?

A: The time varies, but usually no more than two days. Submissions have to be reviewed by moderators for Angel Falls content. Each submission must be approved by at least two moderators before it will appear in the AF gallery. You can speed the process by making sure it is clear your submission is Angel Falls related.


Q: What are the rules for Angel Falls?

A: Okay, not to get all Kim Jong-il here, but at present I only see one rule being necessary at present. That is: If you are going to feature another person’s character in your art or story, you must get permission to use said character and use them in the matter you intend. People’s right to control how their original characters are used and depicted will be respected. Violations will be removed from the group’s folder and the person will be blocked from this account, and may face further action by the character’s owner. Just because a character appears here once, do not assume that it means the owner has given blanket permission for that character to be used again. Simply put: Ask BEFORE you use anyone else’s original character. The character’s owner retains the right to approve text or pictures before you submit them. When in doubt, always ask the character’s owner before you use their character.


Q: Do I have to be part of some organized storyline to submit anything?

A: Absolutely not. Some people make want to work together on more developed storylines. While those take greater coordination, it can be done. But single scenes and smaller loose stories are just fine. The only limit is imagination.


Q: Do I have to make a character information sheet to use my character in the AF setting?

A: No, you don’t have to. But it might be helpful for other people who want to use or understand/appreciate your character. It is your choice. Any character sheets that are submitted will be gathered in a subfolder collection in the gallery for easier reading and organization.


Q: Can I submit submissions that contain adult/mature subject matter?

A: Yes, as long as they fall with DA’s guidelines and are marked mature.


Q: Can I make suggestions for things I would like to see in AF or for improvements or activities?

A: Heck yes!! Please do, this club should be about participation, this is not MY club, it is not HER club, it is not HIS club, this is OUR club! Your input isn’t just wanted, it is REQUIRED for this thing to be fun for everyone, ok?


Q: What limits are there for characters in Angel Falls.

A: Angel Falls characters are limited in physical strength to being able to lift 100 tons. Exceptions to this can occur, but must be justified and approved by the founder beforehand. People should realize that the more powerful a character is, the more limited his or her roles in storylines will be. See the example of the Golden Age Superman character for an explanation of this phenomenon. Characters who are undefeatable or who have no weaknesses or flaws are rarely interesting to other people over the long run.


Q: Who are the moderators and what do they do?

A: Moderators are volunteers who assist in screening stories to make sure they contain AF related content. They make sure the rules of the group are respected and help to decide questions that come up regarding policy or actions in Angel Falls. They do this as volunteers, receiving no pay for their service and efforts.


Q: Can members use the blog?

A: Yes, within certain limits. The AF blog is intended for announcements that affect the group as a whole. It is not for character introductions or questions. It may be used to suggest story lines or solicit participation in a storyline. Members are limited to one story line post each calendar month.

Q: What is the new Artist Showcase Folder used for?

A: To encourage artists to participate in Angel Falls without having to write stories, we have created the Artist Showcase Folder. It is used to display art done by various artists of characters that exist in Angel Falls. To have art placed in this folder, it must be an AF character who DOES NOT belong to the artist. The artist MUST HAVE PERMISSION from the character owner to submit the character to this folder. You cannot submit art of your own character(s) without the required Angel Falls related content to this folder.

If I were to open up another Mega Commission to remake all three of the Rosters would you be interested? The paid commission would include a New Solo Shot of your character that would be used to make the large roster image. I would start with the Heroes, 

10 deviants said Heck yeah, but funds are a little slim, can we pay $20.00 per character.
7 deviants said YES! Shut up and take my money!
4 deviants said If we can get 30 characters per roster or more, we'd be happy to pay $17.00 per character.
4 deviants said No. (Really, you're gonna say no?)
3 deviants said Yes! I would be happy to pay $30 for each character I want on the respective roster.
No deviants said Sure, they need to be updated. I'd pay $25 per character i want on the respective roster they belong on.
No deviants said I want all of my characters in the rosters they belong to, I will start a "go fund me" account to raise the loot!

The Freedom Underworld
Although the city government doesn't like to admit it, Angel Falls isn't perfect. The city has its bad side, poor neighborhoods, gangs, organized crime, smuggling, and other troubles, just like every other major city in the world. For the most part, Angel Falls is safer than most and crime rates are relatively low. There are still parts of the city where it's dangerous to be at night, and violent crime still happens. Smuggling is a major part of crime in the city, with ships moving goods illicitly to the docks in various parts of the city. That includes drugs, weapons, and other illegal goods.

      = Franklin D. Roosevelt High School – Roosevelt High is a public high school. It benefits from fairly new facilities but still has many of the same problems plaguing all American High Schools, such as drugs, violence, and legal issues.

   The Federal Bureau of Prisons created the following cataloging system, categorizing powered convicts and the necessary containment and power suppression protocols to minimize the threat posed by inmates.
    • Type I – Type I prisoners rely on an external energy sources or items for their powers. this includes sophisticated technology (Power armor and weaponry), unique skill sets (archery or swordplay) and magical talisman (Power Amulets, alchemical powders, animal compatriots, etc.) Stripped of these gimmicks, the prisoner is human, though potentially capable of up to Olympic-level proficiencies or attributes. Battlesuit and Gadgeteer-type criminals tend to fall into Type I classfication, though some ultra-geniuses and peak-trained physical combatants are considered Type II because they cannot be strip of their ability so readily.

Cellblocks sandwiched between Floor One and Floor Two are called “Gen-Pop” or General Population Units. They handle the bulk of Tartarus’s prisoners. All inmates here are male and incarcerated based on Power Level. The Prison requires that all convicts clothing bear the cellblock’s letter on the back for clear and quick identification.

Damnit! What's the problem with my art? They're on approval stage since January 27, if there's a problem, say it, I can see what I can do.

To quote Captain America, "Hey, language."

I think you may be getting a little too worked up for this to become an issue and if the images haven't been submitted there might be either issues involving:

a. The setting of the story not being isolated to the mainstream Angel Falls universe.
b. The description might not contain a disclaimer that this is a part of the mainstream Angel Falls Universe.
c. The approval team may or may not have gotten to the images.

Either way I think getting worked up isn't solving anything.

I got word from a good friend that I have been asked to join the Angel Falls group.

Honestly, I am flattered, and humbled. I really enjoy the Angel Falls characters. And the fact that two of my characters play what I consider a minor role in the AF community is something that I am proud of. 

It is something that I will have to seriously think about.
