  1. I am here to report the disbandment of the recently DoE'd alliance Kingsglaive. Please carry on.
  2. Moving to gameplay discussions, Alliance Announcements is for in character inter alliance discourse. That said, I have mixed feelings when it comes to creating new servers. I think a major downside it presents is that it fractures the player base.

  4. In response to possible confusion over the revisions to the spam rule we'd like to provide some general clarifications to this and a few other rules. Spam: Spam in the general sense is a contentless post, a post which contributes nothing to an active conversation.

If we make it too murky well intentioned players may receive warns unpredictably as a consequence of confusion on the part of the acting mod or the forum poster. Basically we're not really cut out to be artistic c
  6. Reaction images will require some text posted with them, regardless of if there is text in the image or not. While there are cases where exception might be warranted, in general reaction images are basically spam and don't contribute much to a discussion.
  7. The staff will be relaxing the prohibitions on spam effective immediately. From here on out, the staff will no longer issue warns for one word posts expressing general approval to an announcement (e.g "Hail", "yay", "congrats" ect). Players should note that posts containing only emoticons or 'o/' will still be considered spam. Revisions in Bold:
  8. I'd like to take the opportunity to announce the additions of Xena of Amphipolis, Elend, Que Sera Sera, and Lucius Cornelius Sulla to the moderation team. Over the years they've demonstrated themselves to be solid players of commendable judgement and character. It is our belief they will excel in serving the community now as members of the staff. We're pleased to have them with us.
