Soooo, it's come to the staff's attention that there has been a rather large amount of confusion regarding how violence and blood are to be dealt with in the ICbox. After having discussed this, we have come to agree on a few ground rules regarding such.
1. Blood is allowed on a situational basis
By situational basis, this means that small amounts of blood [say from a nosebleed, a papercut, small wounds and things like that] are quite fine, but things such as missing limbs, gunshot wounds, etc are not allowed. This ties in heavily with-
2. No overly-violent situations
Overly violent can be defined as over the top fighting, with or without the use of weapons. A character punching someone else in the face? Fine. A character pulling out a katana and slashing people up? Not.
3. Be realistic
This is a school, a high school, remember. Characters smuggling in pistols, swords, etc isn't quite realistic, and remember that these things would, in a real situation, get people expelled.
