    Want to join? Simple::

    1. Wander aimlessly in.
    2. Avoid the random AMENites/HALOers who will attempt to kill you.
    3. Poke one of the current members until they hand you the paperwork.
    4. If the aforementioned current member you poke kills you rather than hands you the paperwork, then you didn't pay attention to step 2. Repeat steps 2 & 3.
    5. Sign the mountain of paperwork, preferably in your own blood, although anyone's blood will do.
    6. Prepare to have had your non-existent soul to have been sold to whoever gave you the legalese our leader-by-default, Lord Walrus the AMEN soul bank for the goodly disinclined some guy on E-bay. Lord Coplantor
    7. Congratulations! You're now an official AMENite! Do random stuff! Kill people! Make things asplode, explode, and resplode! and have a nice DEATH!

    3. Information that is gathered during Interorganizational Plots must not be treated as common knowledge in AMEN.
    (i.e. No "Hey so-and-so, that was really cool what Joe did, wasn't it.") (Thanks to Phase for this one)

    And if you're just visiting, then please do not leave muddy footprints in the base. Also, please try to avoid bleeding all over the furniture. All those who visit should be aware that AMEN take no responsibility whatsoever for any torture/evil practices/soul stealing/spontaneous combustion/death that may occur to the individual visiting. Srsly.

    Disclaimer:
    AMEN is in a different reality than The Town. It is not a part of The Town, does not cross over into it, and does not follow its rules.

    I was thinking about doing a set of AMEN wallpapers, if I had time. Each paper will feature one character and one slogan. I can do a non-OOTS style, or you can provide an OOTS style if you want one for your character.

    The font on that image is really hard to read.

    Also, perhaps we should do an update on that banner on the first post, I mean, half the people in it are no longer members. I would do it myself but I'm too busy. Ok I lied, I'm lazy OK, now go bug someone else

    EDIT: taking a second look, more than half of the people on the banner are members (technically they're all members since you can't quit AMEN I think) but still, there are at least 5 people in it who haven't posted in a long time.

    Non is fine, make sure my feet don't appear, I'm trying to stay ambiguous as to whether I even have legs, and I can't think of a quote at the moment. Something might come to me later.

    Magtok then smacks the fourth wall some more.

    YAY!

    Magtok grabs the wallpaper, and scurries off to...well, somewhere, most likely. Probably the innermost depths of the cyborg's Big Abode of Secret-ness and Evil, into the dark and mysterious parts of AMEN where even descriptive text rarely dares to tread.

    After a long period of non-kitchenness, the Base suddenly generates a large and tidy kitchen, with cliche saloon style doors. Already someone is singing cheerfully within, a boisterous blast of gibberish with a touch of fake Italian accent for good measure. A mushroom cloud of flour emerges from around those Ol' West doors as the singer adds to the mix.

    "Just roll with it!" Fullbladder shouts at the flaming Haruki, without exiting the kitchen. Somehow he manages to actually incorporate that sentence into his song, just before tossing dough into the air.

    There is a splash as he begins to work with the liquid ingredients.
