Membership within the House Dalakan RP community is a privilege, not a right.
That privilege is maintained by observing certain Out-Of-Character and In-Character expectations.
Be excellent to each other! Not only to members within the guild, but outside as well. Members are expected to maintain OOC civility at all times. Members should also be aware that some may have different sensibilities than they hold, and should be mindful of and try to respect those boundaries.
Participate! Members do not have to attend every single event, but are expected to somewhat regularly engage with their fellow guild members in RP. This is a community, and communities only thrive through interaction.
Be fair! This should go without saying, but we do not condone exploiting, botting, cheating, or any action that is a violation of the terms of service within Wildstar.
Roleplay requires consent! Remember that a player has the final say in what happens to their character. This is a fundamental requirement for freeform roleplaying in a safe and sane way.
Characters in House Dalakan have agreed to join a paramilitary organization. As such, they are expected to behave accordingly and, when on a mission, respond to orders. IC insubordination *may happen*, and IC consequences will result.
On Metagaming. Players should avoid having their characters have sudden awareness of information they have not acquired through in-character means.
On Godmoding. Characters get hurt. Players are expected to roll with this, whether as a result of our dice system used in events or even in freeform RP. Taking hits is much more interesting and can generate much better play than characters who are invulnerable.
On Powergaming. The inverse of godmoding -- it is expected that characters attempting some action to or against another character leaves room for the receiving character to react to it or otherwise alter the outcome of what happens.
Respect the scene theme and flow when you are joining one. For play already in progress, if it is an RP or event focused on something, be respectful to the others involved and do not try to drastically change the focus of that scene. When joining the scene, you should attempt to find ways to contribute to that scene rather than detract from it. When the scene finds a resolution, that is the appropriate time to explore something else. Obviously this does not apply to all RP; open social RP often has no particular focus. Players are expected to use their best judgement.
If you feel a member is violating any of the above, please report them to an officer. Log or take screenshots of the behavior so that it can be more objectively evaluated.
Offenses will be addressed by severity on a case-by-case basis. In almost all cases, a warning will be issued before any concrete disciplinary action is taken.
Repeat offenses may result in a temporary suspension from guild RP, or ejection from the guild community altogether.
