USS Galileo Rules and Regulations


Galileo and her Type-9, Virginia, in formation.





Section 1 - General Rules


  • All players must be in compliance with Obsidian Fleet's Rules and Regulations. A comprehensive list of these can be found here.

  • Our sim is rated PG-18 therefore all players must be at least 18 years old to participate.

  • All players must comply with Galileo's 18+ Rating Policy.

  • All players must comply with Galileo's Chat Room Policy.

  • All players must respect the ship's Command Staff at all times. We are here to provide the most enjoyable experience possible for all players, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

  • All players must respect their fellow players at all times. Please be polite and cordial when dealing with your fellow writers. Any player who does not comply will be put on moderation status, assessed a strike, and possibly removed from the sim.

  • All players must adhere to the posting and activity guidelines listed in the sections below.

  • All players must be active and HAVE FUN!




Section 2 - Posting Guidelines


  • All posts must contain proper English spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

  • All posts must follow the proper posting format, including the use of ON/OFF tags, timeline and location, and signatures of all characters involved.

  • All content must fall within the sim's 18+ rating. You may write scenes depicting graphic sex and violence, however no pornography, excessive gore, or foul language may be used. When in doubt, think of a PG-18 movie and err on the side of caution.

  • Joint post tags must be more than a single line of dialogue. Tags must be a combination of speech, action, and/or thoughts.

  • No player may overwrite another player, or change or edit their work without permission.

  • No player may seriously harm or injure another player's character without permission from that character's player.

  • No player may seriously damage or destroy any vessels (including Galileo) or technology without permission from the Command Staff.

  • All subplots must be approved by the Command Staff. We rarely say no, but it is still polite to ask.




Section 3 - Activity Guidelines


  • All players are considered active unless stated otherwise. Any player who is not able to respond to tags for more than four days is required to request a Leave of Absence (LOA). Players who will be away from the sim for longer than two weeks must request an Extended Leave of Absence (ELOA). All LOAs must indicate a return date.

  • No player may abuse the LOA system.

  • All players must post a minimum of two joints posts per month and one personal log per month. Solo posts are great, but do not count towards the posting requirements.

  • Players who are on LOA or ELOA are exempt from the posting requirements until they return to the sim.

  • All tags must be answered in a timely fashion, within 48 hours. If a player is unable to respond within that period, they are required to notify all co-authors of the post. Failure to tag on-time without notification will result in a strike.

  • Any active player who does not log into the website and participate for a period of three (3) consecutive weeks will be considered AWOL and removed from the sim.




Section 4 - Disputes


  • All players must respect each other at all times.

  • All players must attempt to settle any OOC disputes between themselves before contacting the Command Staff.

  • The Command Staff has the final word in any/all disputes. Please respect their decision and move forward.

  • Any player who feels unsatisfied with a dispute's resolution is encouraged to contact Obsidian Fleet's JAG Office and may do so without penalty from the Command Staff.




Section 5 - Strike Policy


  • If a player has received three strikes, they are removed from the sim.

  • Strikes clear at a rate of one per three months from the date of the last strike received.

  • A player's strike record is kept private and is not viewable by any other players on the sim, except members of the Command Staff.
