Lately the coronavirus has taken its hold on the world again, keeping most of us homeschooled or working from home, if at all possible. I sincerely hope you and your families are getting through it safely, and I keep my fingers crossed that it will be over soon. We will continue to be a sanctuary where you can seek refuge from the virus by seeing your friends online through roleplaying on our server, or by having a chat on our forums or discord. Please stay safe, everyone!
In terms of the staff update: We're hoping to open up tester applications come January, and we'll be bringing in a fresh batch of Tester-Admins through December, to make sure we've got our admin roster filled out.
On a side note, I hope you all enjoyed our halloween event!
A special thanks to Coconuty for the mapping of the area and the interior of the haunted house.
Without further ado, congratulations to:

X RING Official Announcement
X RING is a faction based in North Vinewood, but with ties all over the city. With the emphasize on the production of narcotics and the distribution of it on both small scale and large scale, X RING focuses on bringing realistic roleplay around drugs as a whole on the server. The Amsterdam roots of Sebastian Roelofs and the Chechen roots of Magomed Taymaskhanov make for a great mix between in-depth roleplay around drugs and detailed roleplay around weapons. The faction aims to provide a wide variety of roleplay opportunities to the server, including Saint Tropez in Vinewood which is just one of the many businesses with ties to the organization.

New Character Kill Rules for Factions
Rules of Engagement Revamp
The faction team has been working relentlessly to create a more fair and easier to work with character kill rule, and they continue to make a lot of 'behind the scenes' changes to the faction system. A lot of them are small quality of life updates, which have been needed for a long time. If you're a faction leader, or you're interested to know more, please read this post
for more information on the character kill rule change.
Legal Faction Rule Changes
The Rules of Engagement
are undergoing a major revamp, and will be released within the next few days. This is done because there are many loopholes and gray areas in the current set of rules, so we're looking to simplify them a bit, as well as keeping them clear and concice. Be sure to stay updated, and we'll also announce it on our discord when it's released officially.
