This is all quoted from Raven 2552 on the first journal. To make it easier to find, I put it here. Read carefully.
Ok Everybody, this is the most important news post you will read all year. These are the rules, and the other admins and myself will enforce these. You break my rules 3 times, and I will kill you. And this will not be a death you can come back from. You break the rules, I kick you out, and your character will die. Three strikes. That is what you get.
Rule #1: What the admins say is law! If you have a problem, you take it up with an admin in a PM, not in the threads where you disrupt the flow of play.
#2: Every post must be at least 3 well written sentences. No one word, or single small sentence reply. If you can't think of anything else to say, put in actions and movements to fill it out. An incredibly small or poorly written post is not worth our time.
#3: You are a human. An incredibly well trained human, but a human nonetheless. That means no superpowers. This means that you can be a good shot, but you can't hit a gnat at 1000 yards.
#4 I don't care if your character has prosthetics, but they are not invulnerable, they are not bulletproof, they do not give special abilities, they are just prosthetics.
#5: Remember, your character has been around for a while, so they all have a few demons. If you can't handle alcohol, cigarettes, or mentions of casual sex, in short, adult topics, you don't have to talk about them, but you're not allowed to bitch at us.
#6: No OOC in the RP thread! I am dead serious here! None of us can stand page upon page of just casual conversation in the middle of a battle. Keep it to the lounge!
#7: No conversation that desn'tt pertain to the mission at hand. This is during the battle of Reach, and the squad will be jumping almost all the time. There will be no time for hours of conversation back at HQ.
Other than that, you know how to play. We use tactics, group movement, cover, and you can take damage and even die. Communication is standard, and if you don't understand how to communicate, examples are below.
thoughts, ship names
Other than those simple rules, we have fun, and play hard. so lets get down to it.
