There are a few rules that must be followed here at Fort Weyr, in order for everyone to be able to enjoy themselves. Please make sure you read and familiarize yourself with the rules as they will be enforced.

1. NO HARASSMENT of other players will be tolerated. This includes unwanted advances, making a nusiance of yourself, and trying to force someone to TS. We are here to have fun, not to make life miserable for each other.

2. ICA=ICC: In character actions=In character consequences. In a nutshell this means that if you do something ICly that is wrong or against IC rules, you can pretty much expect to be reprimanded and punished appropriately… so watch out and be prepared to accept the consequences for your actions. Read 'news rp4'-'news rp8' for more information regarding the difference of IC vs OOC.

3. Chain of Command: If you are having problems within the weyr, there is a chain of command to be followed. PLEASE try to work out the problem with the person you are having it with… if that can't be accomplished then bring the problem up to one of the weyr staff (see +fowhelp staff) and we'll try to deal with it. If we can not come to a satisfactory resolution then we will bring a wizard into the situation if necessary. We are not beasts and we do not bite off heads (contrary to popular belief), so don't hesitate to bring problems, or comments or suggestions to us. We are willing to discuss IC problems ICly or OOCly, but be aware that any OOC discussion will be to find an appropriate IC solution, then implement it ICly.

4. PUPPETS: Puppets (firelizards, dragons, etc) and objects (wagons, firelizard egg baskets, etc) are wonderful ways to assist in roleplaying. We do, however, request that you do not leave these items in public rooms while you are not there. You can add a small bit of code to yourself that calls the puppet home when you disconnect. If you do not, they may end up being cleaned up using the +tidy command, which sends them back to their 'home' (where they are linked to).

5. TRANSFERS: All we ask is that you inform us of a decision to leave prior to taking up residence at another area. We would also like an IC reason for your transfer, and feel free to RP it out. However, if you are leaving because of a problem, come to us, we may be able to assist in solving it.

6. ACTIVITY: Please see idle under the help files for Fort's activity rules.
