New H.E.R.C. Outcasts
Rules and Regulations
What I Expect
(1.)You must understand that we are a peaceful alliance. Do not forget this. You will remain friendly to the best of your extent.
This rule is very important to me, as well as to the old H.E.R.C. Outcasts.
(2.)You will respect other alliances as you would respect me.
Not only would you speak kindly to me, you surely would also treat me with respect. Do the same as you would with me to other alliances.
(3.) Not only shall you respect other alliances, you shall respect your fellow members.
Do NOT treat other members with hate and shame. If you do, I will banish you from the alliance. No matter what the conversation or topic, whether politics, religion, sports, current news, you SHALL NOT shame or hate via their own personal preference. Cyberbullying is NOT ALLOWED. Do this, and not only shall you be banished, but I will inform all other Treatied Alliances of your attacks online.
(3.a) Teasing and joking is okay, as long as I have an account of the one whom was being teased at was okay with it. No lies.
(4.)I want you to try to help out the lower leveled "Green as Grass" members.
Please do. As I don't want a bunch of level sevens shouting, "WAT DO I DO" please help them out by referring them to whatever they need/the location they're trying to find.
(5.) A decent, English speaking individual.
Don't worry, you don't have to be English/American, just as long as you have a grasp of what English is, and can type sentences.
Also, Grammar is a must. As long as I can understand what you are saying, we won't have a problem.
The Actual Rules
1. You shall not seek revenge. We are a forgiving alliance, and any sort of raiding is NOT permitted (Unless allowed by I)
2.You shall be friendly to all.
3. No Trolling, links to pornography/gore/illegal downloading sites, or SPAM is allowed on the forum, this page, or in chat. Not only is it wrong, but also unallowed by Con.
4. No Green/White/Blue/Rare/Unique Walls of death. Unless it is EXTREMELY Relevant to the topic we are discussing, it is not permitted.
5. Treat all higher-ups with respect.
6. Although I may be funny, witty, unpredictable, I can, and will, be serious when it comes to these rules. I will accept an explanation if you have one.
7.Remember to not spam roleplaying or be very annoying in chat. Keep that in PM.
*More Rules Can and Will be added later, eventually.*
Information About Raiding
Raiding is NOT Allowed unless during wartime/skirmishes. We are a PEACEFUL ALLIANCE. If any reports are taken in and reported to me that you are being hostile, then you will be booted from the alliance.
Peacetime Treaties and Codes
Peacetime Treaties and Codes are very important to me. Everyone who is in this treaty are NOT to be attacked, and are to be treated with respect. There are rules.
1. When an ally is in wartime, you DON'T have to participate. Not at all. Wars are a very bloody, brutal battle that will lead into hate, pain, and lots of injuries.
2. When WE ourselves are at war, I will encourage you to fight, but I shall not force you.
3. Our word is our bond. If we promise peace, we shall give you peace. I expect the same.
4. Failure to comply will result in either a strike, or an immediate kick if it persists.
5. Remember to stay friendly with our allies. Especially Frostedd. But he's a loser, so whatever. *joke*
Raids and Alliance Wars
Raids are unallowed by me. Failure to comply to this will result in an immediate kick. We are a FRIENDLY alliance, a PEACEFUL alliance, and more importantly, a HELPFUL alliance. Raids, well, they're just not like us. If you were here for that, then please understand that we are simply a non-raiding clan.
However, Alliance Wars are an all out "Skirmish" between whatever challenge it is we're facing. This does not mean you can attack friendly allies. Raids for banners on any allies will result in a kick. Plain and simple.
When we are doing an alliance war, please note --
1. Please try to help out!
2. Don't attack allies.
3. If we win, please do not be upset if you don't get any fuel.
4. If we lose, don't be upset.
5. If an ally wins, please congratulate them at the least.
6. Any hate sent to a clan for winning will earn you a strike.
7. PM me about anyone who breaks these rules in my alliance.
Strikes are my way of saying, "Hey, you messed up. Fix the problem."
Strikes are taken directly from Frostedd's idea (Yeah I know, original!) and they work about the same.
However I have an actual list, and it takes four strikes to get booted. (Unless directly booted by me)

...and more will probably be added later.
Our Ranking System is based on the HERC Promotion Ranks, and have been modified slightly.
Ranks will be added for being an overall good person, frequently being on, and helping during the Alliance Wars.
This person is a frequent player and loves helping out. The Highest Rank I am able to give,
The Commander rank is almost never given out.
Lieutenant General -
This person has helped out the General quite a lot -- and deserves recognition. This person
enjoys helping others, and frequently plays. He also deals with Applications to the alliance when Oak cannot get to them. This rank is exclusively for those who have served in the NHO for a very long time -- and has proven his/her worth.
Major General -
This specific person has helped out Oak on many occasions, and deserves the recognition for so. He/She frequently plays, scopes out what is happening, and reports to Oak when there is something wrong. Although they are Third In Command, they have a lot of power in their hands.
Brigadier General -
Fourth in command isn't usually something praised by, but it is to me. You've made it in the
higher ups -- be proud. This person has helped Oak out by scouting out problems and reporting to me,
helping out others, and frequently plays.
One step away from being a higher up. This person frequently gets on, helps players out, and is altogether a good person.
He/She has helped report problems, solve problems, and stopped fights.
Chief Warrant Officer -
This person has become a higher rank -- and deserves to be recognized as one. A middle class rank, this rank is given
to those who have helped out/reported problems. He has frequently warned and helped out new players, and has
given advice and polite tips to those who need them.
Warrant Officer -
You've began to make a name for yourself. You've stepped straight into the Middle Ranks, and deserve it. This person has followed the rules, helped others, frequently gets on, and reports/solves problems.
One step away from the Mid Ranks, you've done all you can to help others and followed the rules. You have the right to keep the lower ranks in line -- and have done so before. You must report/solve problems when you can, and be an overall good person.
Second Rank given out. Keep up the good work and follow the example of those high above you.
Green as grass, newer than a baby straight out of the womb. Follow the example of those above you, and you might make a name for yourself.
*Note* Some of these descriptions are different, but all of them apply to every rank. In order to get ranked up, you must:
Try to help others
Frequently Get on
Report Problems to me
Stop problems if possible
Try to have at least a sense of respect.
Give helpful tips to lower leveled new players
Scout out possible problems
The Four Higher-Ups report directly to me, and tell me if
a lower class has been doing good. If I find out that someone
has bribed a higher-class to tell me good things, Not only will
both get kicked, but you cannot re-join, and I will inform all allied ranks of
Policy for Leaving
The Policy for leaving is this:
You must give me two weeks notice. Please.
You are allowed to leave at any time.
But you must remember this -
One: You are not to give out sensitive information about the alliance, or the people in it.
Two: You cannot consider yourself as a waste of space, something meager and someone who is insignificant.
Three: Though our paths may have diverged, you must continue to live on your life with all of your might, and you must never forget about the friends who loved you.
I, however, will boot you from the alliance if you are gone for two weeks without an explanation. If you PM me why you were gone, I will gladly let you back in if it is understandable. Giving notice if you are going to be gone is something I shall allow.
