Game Rules and Regulations
Nobody likes rules but I've found over the past several months they need to be laid out. This thread will detail all rules and regulations that players need to follow.

Player Versus Player Combat
The biggest issue I find in sandbox games is the question of PvP combat.

I am ALLOWING PvP combat. The game I'm making is a realistic one, and people backstabbing you or trying to kill you is a real threat. Choose your friends wisely. And watch everyone. Closely.

When PvP combat is started, it will be treated like any other combat round.

Combat
Combat will be done as stated in the book. Initiative and all needs to rolled out by the player. Please post your initiative, AC, HP, and actions in a PM at the bottom of your post. I will do the same, so that you know if you succeeded or not. You can then detail your failure or success in your post.

Initiative wise we have two options I'm willing to consider.
A) Everyone makes their posts and whether they failed or not, and then I make a post detailing what happens when. This is the most realistic since it allows for people to attack the same target in one turn, even if that target is already defeated.
B) We work out in initiative system where players post as a first come first served oreder, and actions are resolved in post order(with npcs acting intermixed between the players according to how I see fit).

If in combat you haven't posted and its been at least 48 hours since you're last IC post, I will move the round forward, assuming you are on full defense.

Character Death
Ah yes. Character death.

It's a possibility. This game is realistic. I won't fudge die rolls. Oh..and uh...I'm not setting up encounters based in level. Yea. You could run into a level 10 bandit and be only level 2. Better run mate.

That said, I'm not a GM who looks to kill players. But don't ever feel safe. You aren't. Danger lurks everywhere. Find a buddy and keep him close. Or don't. Hide from everybody. Your choice.

Should your character die I will allow you to write up a new one. However, you restart at level one. And you don't get to keep your stuff. And somebody might loot your corpse. Oh well, survival of the fittest eh?

Posting
Posts are to be done in third person, past tense.

Do not metagame please, sometimes it's okay if it moves the plot forward or out if boring scene, but let's keep it to a minimum.

Do not post for others players, or state what happens in a scene(unless you injure/kill an enemy, then you can detail your attack, or if you succeed at a roll you can detail your success. Be reasonable).

There is no minimum length or requirements for each post other than what's already stated, however they need to be coherent, cohesive, easy to read(grammatically), and to the scene. If you have nothing to say, please make a post with a PM in it to me stating so so that I know I can continue.

If you are changing threads, please declare that in your post IC. For instance, if you are going to The Ship thread, just say..

"Fate finished looting the bodies then headed for The Ship."

Do NOT post OOC IC. Please post rolls and such in a private line at the bottom of your thread. You don't want others knowing what you're stats are.
