Activity is to be reported by the player within a five day time period spanning the last three days of the current month and first two days of the new month. In other words, generally between the 29th-2nd. Any late reports need to be discussed with the mods and will be handled on a case-by-case basis. In the event that players cannot post AC within the given time period, they may have a friend post it for them or contact the mods ahead of time.
All points over the 20 required for activity may be maintained to purchase activity rewards. Please note that at least 10 points of your activity must be from threads started in the month of the activity check. All other points, both to fill in the remaining 50% of activity and bonus points, may be gained from tags in threads began at any time. Threads from the test-drive meme and IC inboxes may be used for bonus activity.
Failing to report activity or not meeting the activity requirement will result in a strike. The strike will be removed upon completing AC requirements the following month. Please note that any player with a strike may not app an additional character until that strike has been removed. Additionally, any character which receives three strikes within a six month time period will be swept from the game.
New characters have a half AC requirement and will only need 10 points to satisfy their first round. All other characters require 20.
Activity requirement: 20 points
The point breakdown is as follows:
✗ Network/Log Post or Top Level OTA Or New CR (5 Points); max 15 points per AC round.
✗ Network /Inbox Tag (1 Point)
✗ Log Tag/TDM (2 Points)
This system is similar to what we use for powers. A minor regain would be something that has minimal impact--i.e., a familiar which is cosmetic but has no powers of their own or exceptional usefulness, an item which is sentimental but has no offensive capabilities, or an NPC interaction which does not impact the game plot in an especially meaningful way. (As such, assume that all NPC interactions which would involve the higher members of society like the Nine, the Company, and top RAC officials are automatically classified as "major".)
ABOUT MINOR VS. MAJOR
AWARDS ARE NOT AUTOMATICThis pertains more so to the NPC interactions and memory reset than the rest, but simply having the HP and applying for the item does not automatically grant you the regain. It is to mod discretion. If it does not make sense from an IC point of view, we will contact you and try to come to an accords or compromise in its place. (Why would your low level street rat with no connections suddenly have docking privileges on Qresh? It can happen, but we want a story out of it that fits into the overall fabric of the game, not handwaving magic.)
HP Starting BalanceAll character will start with a balance of 100 bonus HP. This balance can be used towards all AC bank purchases with the exception of the second character slot and may not be used for satisfying monthly AC requirements (i.e., you must accrue 20 additional HP points each month unless told otherwise by the moderators.)
