Staff is pretty cool for allowing quick characters if you die.

Really, that's an awesome thing to do for players.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

It's a brand new day
And the sun is high
Hear the angels sing
Because you're gonna die
Child, child, if you come to this doomed house, what is to save you?

A voice whispers, "Read the tales upon the walls."

Winds cord the sands to woeful song
From my posted vantage atop the dune
Standards tower across camps, many soldiers strong
Warlords' gathered mass of doom.
The funny little foreign man

I often hear the jingle to -Riunite on ice- when I read the estate name Reynolte, eve though there ain't no ice in Zalanthas.

I've posted a version of this on a clan forum, but maybe this will help those of you that are new to HRPTs or even veterans.  Things to remember!

1. It is going to be hectic.  We've done what we can to try to make the hectic stuff much less of a fast-paced, break-neck spamfest of commands, but in the end, you will need to be vigilant and pay attention.  Some suggestions are to use brief combat and to also have color highlights already set up for things you really need to notice.
2.  You may or may not die, be maimed, etc.  We're not necessarily out to get you specifically, but this is an HRPT.  HRPTs mean shit hits the fan.  Shit may also hit you.  You may also hit the fan.  The fan may be a lie.
3.  Despite the above, you have the ability to affect what happens to you, to your people, and to other things in the world.  Your action or inaction may not necessarily affect you, your unit, those around you, your city-state, your region, or the world as a whole...but it also might.
Paint on a mustache and be a dude for a day. Stuff some melons down my shirt, cinch up a corset and pass as a girl.

With appropriate roleplay of course.

Nice. I guess this means there will be tons of corpses to loot :D

I meant that you're off by an hour.  It's 2 hours and 15 minutes away.
