((The First Regiment, as a guild, wants to ensure that its members enjoy their time, in-character and out, playing this game. As law enforcement is often a highly contentious area of roleplaying, and even sometimes frustrating, any participation in law enforcement activities is absolutely voluntary. If you don’t feel comfortable participating in a law-enforcement scenario or any law-enforcement scenario, you may decline without fear of any negative consequences.
((Should you decide to take part in Law Enforcement roleplay, please take the opportunity to review the Guard Role Playing Guide set forth as part of the Stormwind Law Project. While this is not binding on you, a great deal of helpful guidance can be had from it.))
((When you engage in law-enforcement roleplay, make sure you speak OOC with any perpetrators or victims of the incident. Doing this will not only help you facilitate a conclusion to what could otherwise become a mess, but also help you separate the wheat (good roleplayers open to accepting IC consequences for their IC actions) from the chaff (godmoders, edgelords, and trolls). If you are having trouble arriving at an agreement with the perpetrators/victims, consult with a staff member or officer on how to proceed.))
((There are various methods that can be used to represent the use of force in RP. Though many prefer to engage in a free-form emote battle, a roll-based system is often considered most “fair” due to the impersonal RNG; however, use whatever method you can agree on, and hew to it regardless of the outcome. Keep in mind that you are not obligated to allow your character to be permanently maimed or killed. If you cannot arrive at an agreement with your opponent, you may “retcon” yourself out of the incident and move on.))
((Any report you generate can be posted to the guild’s forum, and that will satisfy the requirements for filing with the Regiment’s HQ. Filing it with anyone else is not necessary OOC; it will be assumed that you did IC.))
