Punishments

All punishments are traditionally given to the Player privately and require a complete explanation to the Player when given. Players should be aware that Decatur TCW staff reserves the right to make their punishments publicly known should the Storytelling Staff deem the Player’s violation warrants it. Punishments may be increased or decreased in measure based upon the Player’s past record.

A Player may receive a Verbal or Written warning. Typically such punishments are reserved for lesser violations.
A Player may receive a Chronicle Strike, which requires a majority vote of the Storytelling Staff. If a Player receives three Strikes within one year’s time, the Player receives an automatic one-year Ban. Strikes dissolve after one year but can be extended by a majority vote of the Storytelling Staff.
A Player may have their Character permanently retired, which requires a majority vote of the Storytelling Staff. This punishment is usually accompanied by a Strike or Ban.
A Player may receive a Chronicle Ban, which requires a unanimous vote of the Storytelling Staff. Bans vary in length from one month to a permanent. A Ban may only be removed by the unanimous decision of the Storytelling Staff.
A Player may be brought up for an OWbN Strike or Ban, which require a unanimous vote of the Storytelling Staff. This requires the Storytelling Staff to bring forth the Player’s offense(s) to OWbN Council and is the harshest punishment(s) a Player can receive for her actions. It is usually accompanied by Chronicle Strike(s)/Ban and/or permanent Character retirement.

Penance

In order that a Strike be lifted, a player must be in good-standing and attendance for six months.
In order that a Ban be lifted, the player must not participate in the Chronicle or Organization for a set period determined by the Staff making the ruling. For Chronicles, this time period will be the discretion of the HST. For the Organization, it shall be the province of the OWbN Council and Executive Staff, in accordance with the OWbN By-Laws and Regulations.
