Players are expected to:
Post speech in quotation marks and thoughts in italics. You may use bold, underline, or color (sparingly, please) for emphasis.
Have no more than three days separating any consecutive in-character posts. This minimum posting frequency will earn you at least 1 XP, sometimes 2, at the end of each Chapter (approximately every 2-3 weeks). Note: if the GM did not notice any typos, you'll definitely get 2 XP for a Chapter's posts.
Be respectful of the GM and the other players in all out-of-character communications.
Make in-character posts that are at least one paragraph in length. No one-sentence IC posts.
Give a week's notice when you will be unable to post for a period of time (vacation, surgery, etc.) This will enable the GM to write your PC to the sidelines in a fashion that doesn't destroy the story's verisimilitude. When an emergency prevents you from posting, for a time, at the required frequency, let the GM know what's going on ASAP.
Remain true to the Mission, Duty, and Craving you declared upon character creation. Ignoring or neglecting these during roleplay will result in fewer XP.
