If you have a question, please read our FAQ first, it may already have been answered:
What's the point? Isn't there already a good aligned organization? Why didn't you just join HALO?
OOC, we have nothing against HALO. (IC may be a different story.) However, we wanted an organization that only allows good-aligned members and focuses on the redemption of evildoers. If the real world can have multiple organizations for the purpose of doing good, we don't see why the forum can't hold more than one as well.
No seriously. Aren't you just a HALO clone?
Not intentionally. We have our own purpose and our own mission, which overlaps somewhat with HALO's, but is not identical.
Why don't you let anyone post in the main thread without PMing first?
OOC answer: Honestly, we tried it, and it was too chaotic to read.
IC answer: You don't let strangers wander into your house at all hours, do you? We just want to know who is in our house.
Still, it seems awfully rude. You've offended a lot of people.
We're sorry. We didn't mean to.
What's the point of the visitor's centre?
We still want to play nicely with others! So we set up the visitor's centre thread to provide an IC access port.
Are you part of the Town? Or are you in an extra dimension?
We didn't really know at first, but when AMEN contacted us, it seemed clear that we inhabited some sort of reality with AMEN and HALO. Which means we aren't Town. I think. (Really, we're making this up as we go along!)
New answer: Everyone's a part of the town, but the rules are different here, Town laws do not apply. ACRONYM rules do. So respect the rules, and we will all get along just fine.
Will you be interacting with the other groups?
Yes, but we haven't worked out the mechanics yet. We're officially at war with AMEN, but we don't want random fighting going on in our headquarters. So we might be setting up a war thread or a plot thread or something, but we don't know yet.
As far as HALO goes, we have no formal ties with them, though there is some membership overlap, and we're currently in discussions. IC, some of us have formed a negative opinion of HALO. It doesn't mean we have a problem with you OOC. (Honestly, Turtle isn't the brightest crayon in the box, and she's very defensive about being a former evildoer.)
GLoG is a pretty silly name, isn't it?
Yes. Yes it is. One of our founding members used to belong to the Evil League of Evil (If you haven't heard of it, google 'Dr Horrible'), so when she turned good, it seemed reasonable to form the Good League of Good.
But anyone passing through it arrives outside the front door. If they've already been cleared (previously interacted with GLoG without hostilities), they can walk straight in without having to roleplay out knocking on the door and so on.
First time visitors, or people who have previously caused trouble have to wait for someone to undeadtime to decide whether they can pass or not.
I come back into GLoG, swipe my card or do an eye scan, or whatever it is that gets me in, with windswept hair, a sports bottle of water in my hand, and a bike in the other. Great weather for biking. ((IRL as well. ))
@V: ((I know of Ides of March, but it still doesn't make sense.))
"Ouch," Turtle says, wincing in sympathy. Of course, knowing her, she wouldn't have actually winced at all if she were in the middle of being eaten by a hair thing. "Have you met Randy before?" she asks.
Butler yawns and gets out of the guest bed. Even if Decker wouldn't take the main bed, he wouldn't feel right taking it either with guests. He'll check on baby Kaela, getting him food, dressed, and playing.
He'll then peer under the crib at now awake Decker. "You know ma'am, I offered you the main bed ma'am. I don't understand why you didn't take it ma'am."
"Ah, but it doesn't matter does it ma'am. Did you have a good night's sleep ma'am?"
After getting Randy off to a quiet corner, Turtle sits down with him. "I don't know if anyone told you about Czernov." She hesitates a moment, then decides the blunt approach is the best. "He was murdered."
