Bottom line up front: Our ears and eyes are open, our mouths are not. We will nudge you ICly if we feel that it is needed, we will not tell you what's going on OOCly.
I'm trying to avoid as much OOC input about character developments as possible. There have been way too many issues in the past. "Well, when I talked to GM X, they said my character...", "GM Y said this event....", and so on and so on. Even in that thread, there was a specific mention along the lines of "OOC communication with the guru at the time led me to believe my standing with the guild was getting stronger." This needs to stop. We actually have a non-disclosure agreement. This is a fairly new thing within the past couple months, and it's actually kind of hard to stick to (Look at all these cool projects we have planned for you guys!), but we fully intend to stick to it, especially when it comes to personal player character issues and events. You should NOT be told by a GM, on an OOC level, and be openly discussing with the GMs, how a specific faction views your character.
We will NOT:Non-Disclosure:
-Do not discuss any aspect of your GM duties with players outside of official CLOK chats.
This includes, but is not limited to, current or upcoming projects, gameplay mechanics, deep lore, information regarding other PCs or GMs, events, or disciplinary actions.
-Maintain anonymity of yourself and others.
Counsel you about your character about the best course of action to take involving their IC actions and possible repercussions. / Tell your character that X action will have Y repercussions.
Tell you how NPCs or organizations view your characters or are going to react to things that have happened or that are speculated to happen.
Give you any sort of insight on personal events and situations such as, but not limited to, inner light or joining a restricted guild/group.
Reveal why certain in-character actions were taken for or against your or another character.
Listen and carefully consider any feedback about any of the above, if you just want to tell us how you feel about a situation, we will read it. We will not be able to respond OOCly with detailed information regarding it, however.
We will give and have given plenty of IC warning before something as drastic as being kicked out of a guild happens. That's what guild probation is for. Getting banned from a town is another issue, but I'd think it's fairly obvious. If you don't want to get kicked out of somewhere, don't break their rules, subvert them, or openly declare war on them. The game world is a wild and dangerous place. Stuff happens. Your characters don't live in some sheltered well-protected environment, they live in a wild rough and tumble quarantine zone where trust is extremely hard to earn. Especially when you have a reputation of being one of those crazy "undying" people.
