New For 52 (NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE NEW 52 PLEASE DO NOT SUE US DC COMICS)

Happy New Year Everyone!

My oh my how we've grown! I remember logging on this time last year and seeing maybe, maaaaaybe four people online and now we push twenty during peak hours. I know that it's not the sixty people a day that we were used to way back in the late 90s when I started playing, or the alleged "hundred people daily" at another online cyberpunk game who we won't mention (I can't confirm this amount because I refuse to pay just to log on and count them all), but it is more than it was last year and hopefully it continues to increase.

Which brings me to the point I'm about to make.

As we have had a very small base of players in the past, we have let slide some of the rules that you have all agreed to by logging in to the game. Specifically the following:

==5B. Roleplaying in a group or gang==
WHICH READS IN PART:

We understand that people want to play with their friends, but players should vary their experiences, and not excessively rejoin the same players / groups across characters. Players found to be doing this inappropriately will be required to take a break from their friends / groups for a period of time (after their existing character naturally dies or vacations).

==5C. Different characters, different goals==

Players who use many successive characters in an attempt to beat a game challenge, a group / gang, or a specific player will not be tolerated. Players should avoid repeatedly creating the same type of character, joining the same gang / group, or pursuing the same type of game employment / role for their characters. Players who routinely dispose of their characters via simplistic suicides in order to escape the roleplaying consequences of their actions will not be tolerated, especially those using the Advanced / Tier3 character generation system.

You might be reading this and thinking, "Aaahahaha ooooh that Pennywise. He's such a kidder."

Unfortunately, I'm not. So much so that, unless I immediately see the players that this post refers to, voluntarily breaking up their cross character groups, I'm going to start doing it myself.

I apologize in advance, but we have given multiple warnings and a LOT of leeway when it comes to this issue, and it has now reached a point where it is a concern that needs to be addressed.

Thanks so much for bringing all of your activity into line with the rules that you agreed to when you were granted a player slot and we hope you look forward to a year full of cyberpunk mayhem with all the new people you'll meet by joining and playing with people that you haven't been!

Cheers!
