Charon's History

Stardate 242103.17 The Charon maiden voyage took her to the outer reaches of the Alpha Quadrent to do a survey mission in the Taybor system, to map the area after an unmanned probe. The mission seemed simple but became unbearable when the ship's computer develops an unexpected personality, interrupting the survey mission.

Ship's Manual

How Points Are Awarded

1.1 Monthly Points
1.1.1 Players are expected to post a minimum of twice weekly. Each post made by a player will accrue up to 50 (1-50) points towards their monthly total depending on length and content (up to a max total of 500 points).
1.1.2 Qualifying posts must be written with full paragraphs and contain detail. Posts that are less than four lines, or consistently formatted incorrectly, will not be counted towards the monthly total.
1.1.3 Additional points can be gained by receiving medals for outstanding post quality and expression of character, at the discretion of the CO and FO. As a guideline these medals are for posts which are consistently well written, move the story along, and interact well with others in an engaging and entertaining manner.
1.1.4 NPC posts can accrue a player points in the same way as PC posts, though points may NOT be awarded in such instances if an NPC post appears to have been given priority over a PC post where the latter seems more urgent in moving along the mission/providing other players with a response.

1.2 Department Head Points
1.2.1 Department Heads receive up to 100 positional points each month for performing the duties required of them in the Constitution. In order to earn those points, DHs must turn in points recommendations for their department along with an RPGer nomination by the end of the 18th of each month, site time.
1.2.2 If a DH has not submitted points by that deadline, they will be docked 50 points. They then have until the end of the 21st, site time, to submit them or risk losing all positional points for the month.
1.2.3 DHs who fail to turn in the required points and RPGer nomination by the end of the 21st will receive no positional points for the month.
1.2.4 Site time refers to the time shown on the main board.

Leaves of Absence

2.1 If a player is to be away from the site for more than 5 days, they are required to announce a Leave of Absence, either by posting on the ship or by sending an email to their superior officer.
2.2 Players whose LOA causes disruption of the game will have their characters hijacked at the CO's discretion to help move along the plotline.
2.3 Players who request LOA will have the twice weekly posting quota waved, but they must make a minimum of 8 posts during the month to receive the full 400 points.
