  :: KAOS KNOWLEDGE ::
Posted by: Official - 05-11-2017, 10:01 AM - Forum: Updates - No Replies

Welcome to the first phase of the Kaos SWP!

Below I am going to compile a list of public knowledge about Kaos, and knowledge that you will have to gain IC. Because so much of what is happening surrounding Kaos has occurred in individual threads, I don't want anyone to feel left out. Feel free to activily seek out certain characters to gain valuable IC information!

PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE
This is knowledge you may assume that your character has if you want.

    1. Kaos is an amalgamation of the 4 Gods who were brought over from the Rift and killed.
    2. Kaos first appeared in Helovia posing as 'Kisamoa', which was an anagram for "I AM KAOS".
    3. Kaos has promised that although he has lied in the past, he will be honest going forward. He also says he's here to help.
    4. No one has seen Kaos' true form yet
    5. Bad things seem to be happening on patrols
    6. The Moon Goddess seems to be the only one to know something about Kaos (she helped him on the beach); Sunny sent Aithniel away to investiage the rift, Sparky offered no advice to Roskuld, and Earthy left the Falls.


NOT PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE
This is knowledge that only certain characters have. Feel free to try and discover this information from them IC!

    1. Kaos has been offering free healing, in exchange for future favours! So far, he has healed Oizys, and has spoken to Ru and Sacre.
    2. Yael has translated the words on the altar, since she speaks Hebrew! WELL DONE YAEL! They translate to, KAOS WILL SAVE, PEACE, POWER, and FOREVER
    3. Nice things seem to be happening in the marshes, near where Kaos' altar is.
    4. Kaos is giving out special necklaces to his followers! They are onyx stones with a glowing teal eye.

OTHER INFORMATION

    1. Currently you cannot use a VOTG pass or a VOTG chat to summon Kaos. However he does seem to show up for healing requests, and might interrupt a VOTG request too.

2. You cannot claim a slot if you received one the last time one appeared.
3. Please be courteous of others wanting the slots and give everyone a fair opportunity to have one.
4. These slots are only for characters brought into the site, not foals born on site.
5. You must fill out a rough character profile in order to be eligible for this slot. The rough character profile must be on the wishlist of one of your characters.

You must tentatively have the following filled out, one for each slot:

Species:
Coloration or design:
Personality:
History:
Magic: if applicable

- - -

6. Please define what species of companion, class and age, therefore skill level, you'd like it to have. Keep in mind certain species of companion can only bond to certain species of Helovian characters.

:: The species you choose is automatically granted, however it's class and skill must be agreed upon beforehand by admin. In the sake of preserving rarity and keeping a companion from being too powerful, admin may accept or decline your choices.

:: In the event of a decline, a die will be rolled to determine the class and skill of the companion. This gives an opportunity for you to receive what you asked for, but the chances are then determined by luck.

  :: Stolen items can be taken back from characters on extended absences ::
Posted by: Official - 05-02-2017, 10:56 AM - Forum: Updates - No Replies

A new rule is being added to the Guidebook regarding stolen items.

"If a character has a stolen item and goes on an extended absence, the original owner of the item may steal/challenge it back after the 4 month time limit, regardless if the player is marked absent or is in absent abyss. This rule only applies to extended absences or complete disappearances from the site where it has been 4 months or more, consecutively since their last IC post."

Thank you all for participating in the discussion of this new rule!

  :: Stealths are written by one person PSA ::
Posted by: Official - 04-29-2017, 11:14 AM - Forum: Updates - No Replies

Hello Helovia,

It's come to the attention of the admin team that one of the long-standing stealth rules is not entirely being followed. Per our Guidebook's stealing section:

Quote:2. A steal must be of your own writing, but can allude towards or briefly quote something written by someone else.

What this means is the single person/character creating the stealth is the only writer of that stealth. No one else should be reviewing, suggesting, or editing the stealth in any manner.

Thank you,
The Admin Team.

  :: DISPUTE PSA ::
Posted by: Odd - 03-20-2017, 01:55 PM - Forum: Updates - Replies (2)

Hello Helovia,

About 2 years ago I implemented a strict BE NICE OR LEAVE policy, because this community got so hostile that our beloved Tamme actually needed to leave because things got so terrible. Luckily we reconciled these issues, but now both the admin, our Jr A's, and some of our members are once again feeling negativity creep back in.

Because of this, I would like to remind the community of two things.

This is the contract that we hold all of our admins and jr a's to, and I think it is relevant and applicable to all.


1. If you have a problem, seek that person out in a calm way within a few days of the incident. Allow yourself time to cool down, but also make sure that your concerns are fresh in your mind. Do not let things fester. 

2. Be sure to ask clarifying questions. Not everyone speaks or thinks the same way, so before you pass a judgment, try and gain understanding of the reasons and background of the issue.

3. Listen and speak. A good resolution requires both. 

4. Even when you get frustrated, don't give up. Try to explain your side calmly, and do not be afraid to say "wait a minute so that I can explain" if you feel rushed. 

5. There are no absolutes. Make sure that you use "I" and "me" statements when you are in both agreement and disagreement. There is a very big difference between "I feel that this idea needs more thought" and "This is a bad idea". 

6. Have a strong opinion, but understand that most of the best ideas come from compromise and combined effort. Also, understand that other people will have strong opinions too. 

7. Always have a moderator present if you feel like things may get out of hand. The moderator's job is to look at the situation objectively and interject in areas that they think are right or wrong. The moderator is not out to get either side. 

8. Understand that in a team setting, everything is a give and take. Ideally, the ideas would come from a combined effort, but often, time does not allow the courtesy. 

9. When in doubt, ask if you have hurt someone's feelings or did something that bothered them. Be honest in your reply. Holding a grudge without letting the other person know is both unfair and problematic. 


In that light, admins and jr a's will no longer handle disputes over skype.

This is the protect both us and you. When we chat over skype, we can type without thinking, don't give ourselves time to breathe, and often say things we don't mean/regret. By asking that all disputes go through the Helovia PM system, we force both ourselves and you to think about what we want to say, and craft a response that we can be proud of and stand behind. We will of course still chat and answer questions, but if there is an issue, please PM our admin accounts or Official. We remind the community to be courteous and polite, even if a dispute arrises. Non-compliance will be given an official warning.

Helovia NEEDS to be a place where we can all relax and have fun.

Thank you,
The Admin Team.
