|What is Canon Updating?|
|'Canon Updating' is when you change your characters Timeline, without restarting them, or give them knowledge from farther into their canon than the point in time they were originally taken. For example, you take your character from Episode 10. With a Canon Update, you can change that to say your character is now, technically, from Episode 30. Or you keep them from Episode 10, but then through something else called Dream Updating, you give them a dream of a scene from Episode 30, or a dream of an AU version of themselves from another canon.|
|Canon Updates can be given to a character as a means of updating what point in time they were originally taken from, without restarting them. This means that not only do they gain all knowledge and memories from their canon up to their new point in time, but they also retain all memories from Rivelata.|
When characters are being Canon Updated, they will be absent from Rivelata for One Week. This means the character will not be able to write in the journals, or participate in logs for the duration of the week that they are Canon Updating. The reason for this being that for the Canon Update they have returned to their canon. Once a week is up(no matter how much time has passed in canon, be it two days or a year), the Character will return to the island the same way they first arrived: on the boat
You may update your character with another Canon. For example, if your character originally came from an Anime timeline, but you want to canon update them for a Manga timeline, you may do so. However, the two series must be similar, and there must not be too many differences between the Anime and Manga up to the point you have originally taken them from.
Only ten characters at a time may be Canon Updating. This may change when the amount of characters in Rivelata increases. Only one character per mun may be updated in a Month. Once a character has been Canon Updated, they cannot be Canon Updated again for Two months.

|Dream Updates can be given to a character as a means of giving your character knowledge of a scene from their Canon, without actually changing the timeline that they were originally taken from. A character can only have a Dream Update once a month, and only three characters per mun in one month.|
Dream updates can be anywhere from one minute long to fifteen minutes long.
Dream Updates can be of any one of the following:
❶ A memory from further in their Canon than they were originally taken → This is a memory they would have experienced firsthand in their future Canon. The dream will be from their own Point of View.
