Syntax: backstab <victim>
Syntax: circle <victim>
Backstab is a bounty hunting skill that will start a fight with whoever
you backstab. To backstab someone, you must be wielding a piercing weapon
and have already approached your victim.
Circle is also a bounty hunting skill, not unlike backstab. The difference
being that you must already be fighting to circle someone. Again, you must
be wielding a piercing weapon and have already approached your victim.
Spyapp Basic Information
For clans to function, a certain degree of trust is required between its
members. To ensure this trust and provide continuity of the clan, every clan
member must adhere to the following set of spyapp rules:
1. You may not seek to harm (attacking, shooting, grenading, or stealing from)
members of your clan, as well as the clan itself.
2. You may not reveal classified information pertaining to your clan to those
who are unauthorized. This includes your clan's roster and secret projects.
3. If a player leaves a clan for any reason (including outcast), they may not
take hostile action against said clan. This includes sharing information about
the clan, clan members, or clan enemies. If the player's former clan decides to
pursue them, the player is free from spyapp restrictions. This does not apply
to players who violate basic laws like stealing from citizens, etc. It also
does not apply to players who attempt to subvert this rule by purposefully
concealing their identity and/or forcing "shoot me or else" situations.
4. You may not withdraw credits from your clan for personal gain. This includes
lining your pockets at the end of an era when the clan may be disbanded.
Prisoners of War
Without an approved spyapp, prisoners may reveal the following information to
warring clans if sufficient roleplay has been established:
1. Greets, dubs, and the rank information of members of the prisoner's clan.
2. The names, classes, and specifications of ships of the prisoner's clan.
Players in positions of authority in clans must closely follow all of these
rules. A clan is a community, and as such, its community leaders are expected
to act responsibly for the good of their clan and the game as a whole. However,
the Clan Leader is granted some leeway with regards to spyapp. This is because
they are the guardian of the clan's intention and goals. If there is valid
roleplay, a clan leader may perform such actions as outcasting members and
ordering their execution if they betray the clan's trust. However, clan leaders
are still bound by spyapp, and therefore cannot perform the following actions
via force or coercion, as they will bring harm to their clan:
1. Provide the clan's roster or inductlog.
2. Disband the clan.
3. Cede clan property, including developments, ships, credits, or planets.
Exception: As the terms of a ceasefire/truce, the clan leader may consult
with other clan officers/members and determine what is reasonable to
cede without irrevocably harming the clan.
Exceptions (Applying for a Spyapp)
Spyapp exceptions are submitted via our website applications, and must be
approved by staff. To receive approval, you must provide justification for the
spyapp in the form of roleplay logs, think logs, and character sheet. Be as
specific as possible with what your character will do with their spyapp: What
exactly do you want to reveal/do? Who are you going to reveal/do it to/or and
who/what is the target? Most importantly: Why?
Please do not ask the staff for instant-approval spyapps. We will not make a
clan-altering decision simply because you have a perfect opportunity to strike.
