Conflict Resolution:
There will be times when we do not agree on something and, that is perfectly fine. Keep in mind that all conflict resolution should start at the lowest possible place to resolve. In most cases another player may not even be aware that they’ve offended someone else and, will apologize and refrain from taking that action again. In rare instances the conflict has to be taken to the next possible level which is the Command Team and, we will assist in finding a resolution. Minor problems can be resolved quickly and efficiently with little more than words and a promise or agreement.

Larger problems may take a bit more finesse than simply words and an agreement between all parties involved. A full investigation will be conducted and, some sort of consequence will be presented to the offending party. The command team may decide to begin moderating posts and, in extreme cases may opt to remove the player entirely from the game.

Basic Rules:
- No god moding
- Read the post (especially the ones you are working on) before a response
- Request an eLOA or LOA when necessary they will be approved and try to post once every 14 days or at a minimum be working on a post
