Sim Guidelines


1. Our rating is set at 16+, but we ask that all members be 18 years of age or older. This applies to both the sim website and within the Discord server. Specifics regarding the rating can be seen on the "Join" form.

2. Leaves of Absence (LOA's) will be granted upon request, but notice (even sudden notice) is expected and will be appreciated. See Golden Rules 1, 2, and 3.

3. There are no set posting requirements, but limited activity will be addressed on or around 21 days to discuss future interest and opportunities. See Golden Rules 2 and 3.

4. Public out-of-character (OOC) interactions, such as the Discord channel, are for friendly chatting and plotting. Personal conflicts ought to be kept private and worked out as adults. The CO and XO will arbitrate disputes fairly and respectfully as needed, but there is an expectation for respectful interaction at all times. See Golden Rule 2.

5. Character ranks apply solely to in-character (IC) interaction. They are not meant to reflect or reward a player's talent, and are only indicative of the character's place in the story. The IC Chain-of-Command (CoC) does not place players above or below one another with the exceptions of the CO and XO. See Golden Rules 1 and 2.

6. Department Head players will be consulted before a decision is made to add a new player to their department (and a private straw poll for new department heads), but the final decision is reserved for the CO. See Golden Rules 2 and 3.

7. In our strive for excellence, we want to exercise and maintain high standards of plausibility. This means careful consideration of fleet canon and source material, as well as the suspension of disbelief in our story development. It also follows that character decisions, plot twists, and all else may face polite questions and scrutiny by other players or the CO. Creative differences will be resolved amicably, but they will not be ignored. See Golden Rules 2 and 3.

8. Have fun! See Golden Rules 1, 2, and 3.
