Vast Horizon Policies
From time to time, staff may initiate an event or plotline that requires roleplay. Metagaming for such events is against policy. If you have event suggestions, feel free to use the suggest or support command and lay your idea out for us. Something just might come of it. Keep in mind, if this event is something that requires a conversation between you and us, send a support ticket. Alternatively, some NPC's can be mailed letters, but these letters can also be formatted in a support ticket.
These events could be a large exploration trip, small party, why you are going on that three-month vacation, or beginning of a plot. Your options are endless, and staff will be happy to help as time allows.
We will try to run a minor event once every couple of months. However, sometimes this will be more and sometimes less. We do have lives and have other work to maintain the game. Major events will be less frequent but will happen. The reasoning behind this is because of the length of time it may take to complete a major story arc type of event.
If you plan an exploration trip, keep in mind that we won't always be able to do a big production for you. Just send a support and talk with us about your plans. We will do our best to work with you.
If you are planning a small event such as a party, wedding, or other type setting, please give us at minimum of one week to get your event ready. The more complex your event is, the more time we may need to set it up. Most members of the VH staff are gainfully employed on some level or other and simply cannot always set up an event in less time than a week.
If you only need something as simple as a prop that does not require code or go ahead to begin roleplay for your event, that likely can be done quickly. For example, you need a birthday cake in two days but are taking care of everything else. We make no promises that we could do it but it would be more likely than having expectations of us decorating for the entire party.
Keep in mind, staff has the right to refuse an event for any reason we deem necessary and disclosure of this reason is not required. Example reasons could be that it deviates from our theme. It strays into an area we are not ready for the game to go. Staff or someone else has planned something similar.
Reminders that will display to the game can be OOC or IC. If you want a reminder set up for your event let us know. This may include but is not limited to a trip, party, or wedding.
