Rules

Horizon Colony Rules


 TO JOIN THIS SIM, YOU WILL HAVE TO AGREE TO ALL RULES AND COMPLETE ALL QUESTIONS IN THE APPLICATION.




Posting Requirements:
If you have not posted in a week yet have a productive and progressing saved log being created, these rules will be flexible at the discretion of the Commanding Officer. Sunday is considered the start of the week.

- Department Heads:
We ask that all Department Heads post at least one post per week. This may be a personal log. If a Department Head has an NPC that is involved in another JL, this will count towards their requirement unless the Department Head Character has not posted in over 14 days. Any department head failing to meet this requirement without informing a CO risk being removed from their position.

- Regular Players:
We ask that Regular Users generate at least one post every two weeks. It may be a personal log.




General Chat:
5th Fleet and Horizon uses both Nova and Discord to communicate OOC, whether this is through logs or message s on Discord. We ask that you remain respectful and avoid sensitive subjects.

Harassment of players
Don't do it, simple. Repeat offences will result in removal from Horizon and potentially 5th Fleet, at the discretion of Command Members and 5th Fleet Council.




Character Limits:
All players will be permitted to hold:
     - 1 Playable Character
     - 1 Non-Playing Character
     - No limit imposed on civilian characters or mission-specific NPC's




Character Creation:
We try to encourage the creativity and openness of our members however we must be fair amongst our members. You must ensure that your character is evenly skilled, well balanced and is not excessively over-skilled. We would recommend for every few strengths or merits given, a flaw or two is added.


We ask that you take extra precaution with certain abilities such as telepaths or empaths and ensure that they do not become an over-skilled or over-powerful character that has no limit. Please ensure you balance these typed characters out.

We ask that you ensure your writing style is considerate of other members and share the enjoyment of writing by including spots for other members to join in.

Consistent short posts, infrequent posts, severely explicit content and inappropriate posts will be considered for removal after fair warning.

In addition, in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not accept players under the age of 13. Any players found to be under the age of 13 will be immediately removed without question. By agreeing to these terms, you are also saying that you are above the age of 13.
