    Please make sure to follow these rules and use the report button to highlight concerns with threads/posts in this section. We don't currently have a GM to police faction groups management right now, but this will change towards release.

    F&A is designed for building and managing factions. Not for disputing or organising targeted attacks.

    Thread Posting
    • Make sure if your establishing a faction/alliance, that you're using a unique group name/description. People can take role play here seriously, please respect that others may have a thread for a common group. Search the sub-forum before creating a thread for your group.
    • Faction threads should have a lot of good quality content in the starting original post.
    Posting Rules
    • Don't post PvP related jibes or insults. Targeted harassment is unwanted by many here, it derails entire threads. Don't do it. If you really want to PvP roleplay, use the PM system.
    • Disrespecting or flaming members in a faction or alliance's thread is not allowed, in-character roleplay or otherwise. Violating posts will be removed and offending users will be warned/banned at a Gamemasters discretion depending on the severity of the violation.
    • Read the thread's prefix to see if you have to post in character. If one isn't specified, treat the discussion as roleplay (unless defined).
    • Talking out of character in a roleplay thread must be denoted with double parentheses. Example:
      "I will slay you scum! ((I'm going to declare war on your faction, please come on Discord))"

      When posting, do not mix out of character and roleplay discussions. This is called metagaming, and can lead to sub-forum bans from F&A, or in some cases a sitewide ban.
    Common Rules
    • Please respect other users if you're talking out of character. It's OK to throw insults and jabs around in character, but we don't want you personally attacking another user, or posting personal information about them.
    • Respect that the original poster is the commander of the faction/alliance (unless stated otherwise on the thread).
    Cannon Factions
    • If you're looking to establish a cannon faction, you must first check via the F&A board that the faction is not already locked in.
    • Official cannon factions are locked in when the community shows overwhelming support for your organisation, and the potential leader(s) show promising leadership.
    Not all rules are established here and this acts as a guideline.
    This sub-section also follows the mandatory global rules.

    Thread updated in regards to recent PvP attacks and thread derailing.

    Thread updated to reflect new F&A roleplay rules:
    • Read the thread's prefix to see if you have to post in character. If one isn't specified, treat the discussion as roleplay (unless defined).
    • Talking out of character in a roleplay thread must be denoted with double parentheses. Example:
      "I will slay you scum! ((I'm going to declare war on your faction, please come on Discord))"

      When posting, do not mix out of character and roleplay discussions. This is called metagaming, and can lead to sub-forum bans from F&A, or in some cases a sitewide ban.
