WiCoT Rules of Engagement:
RoE 1. We will always defend ourselves and those we fly with. Retreating is a valid defensive tactic, so is fighting back. It does not matter who is attacking, this rule always applies. If a conflict starts because our side has broken our RoE, try to disengage from the fight and let an Elder of the Tribe contact the other party through diplomatic channels.
RoE 2. No griefing. We do not randomly attack commanders.
RoE 3. No attacking of friends and allies, even if there is a bounty on their head. The exceptions to this rule are training fights with mutual consent and tournaments. If you are attacked by a member of a friendly or allied group: take a screenshot and report the incident to an Elder who will resolve the issue through diplomatic channels.
RoE 4. No attacking of neutrals.
RoE 5. Attacking of Empire officials, pirates, slave traders and griefers is encouraged.
RoE 6. As a tribe, we are no PvP bounty hunters. However, some of our members may chose to be a bounty hunter. Bounty hunting on pirates, slave traders, griefers, vipers with national flag (Old Earth flags are a bad omen and an insult to our ancestors) and NPCs is fine. We avoid attacking commanders who have a bounty for smugling, loitering or economic and minor crimes. We also avoid attacking commanders who only have a bounty issued by the Empire: we will need friends among the enemies of the Empire.
((OoC: RoE 7. Respect the players who are hostile to us. Taunt and kill their commanders. ))
The Council of Tribe Elders will judge on reported breaches of the above Rules of Engaments by members of the Winged Cobra Tribe.
The Council may appoint a specific Elder to deal with the matter.
