Under a Red Moon is dedicated to many things, but the first shall always be the enjoyment of our members. We are a Collective of Garou and Changing Breeds chronicles, not Vampires, not Mummies, not Changelings or Mages or Wraiths, strongly founded in the published World of Darkness® and founded on the idea that a Global Story is imperative in the function of a confederation such as ours. We represent the Dark and Failing perspective of the World of Darkness®, liberally laced with moments of heroism and victory. We are supportive of the needs of our individual Chronicles, even while maintaining the efficiency that can best be found in a Benevolent Dictatorship. And, finally, we are firmly on the side of creativity in story writing, character creation and in character interaction, but do not lose sight of the need for solid conintuity and maintenance of the Central Theme.
Article One: Local Plots
A) Each chronicle has the right to create and progress storylines that effect their own chronicles exclusively. If a plotline exceeds the boundaries described herein, they require the approval of the Continuity Coordinator. Exceeding the boundaries shall be defined as follows:
B) Chronicles have the right to expect timely response to such requests, but should expect a delay of at least 24 hours when making such requests.
C) Each chronicle has the right to maintain a set of House Rules. It is highly recommended that these local rulings be published to the chronicle's web site, if available.
Article Two: Storyteller Control
A) Chronicles have the right to demand whatever requirements of potential players in their games as is necessary to maintain theme, fairness of play, safety and legal integrity. Each game has the right to refuse to allow any person the privilege of playing in their game, whether that person intends to be a regular player in that game or is visiting from a "foreign" chronicle.
B) Upon any changeover of Storyteller in a chronicle, such changeover needs to be reported to the Administrative Coordinator within one week of it's effective date. At this time, passwords to the Storyteller Resources section will be issued and deleted to reflect this change.
Article Three: Continuity
A) The Global Story shall exist in its complete form in all chronicles. Storytellers of member chronicles are not permitted to disregard Global Plots. For example, if UaRM states that there is a red star in the sky, then that red star is in the sky of every game in the continuum.
B) Every sept and in-game region used in a chronicle, whether in a story or as a part of chronicle or character background, is to be reported to the Continuity Coordinator to be published on the web site. Each chronicle is required to use the published version of each sept or in-game region thereby published. Right to have your version as the "official" version of a sept or region is on a first come, first served basis, and subject to Coordinator adjustment.
C) The Universal Rules, published kept up to date at the UaRM web site, shall be in force in all member chronicles to better provide consistency of rules throughout the collective. Visiting players can expect these rules to be in effect when they visit "foreign" chronicles.
Article Four: Democratic Process
A) On the 31st day of October of each year, the Coordinator positions come up for a vote of the Collective (defined as all players with reported character sheets, storytellers registered as such with UaRM, and coordinators of UaRM).
B) No other UaRM-wide decisions are made by a vote of the Collective. Member chronicles acknowledge that all other decisions are made by the appropriate Coordinator.
C) The Coordinator Positions of UaRM are as follows:
Article Five: Monthly Reporting
A) Each chronicle is required to submit a monthly report of events occurring within their games. This may be a one-paragraph synopsis or a detailed report of all activities, at the discretion of the Storytellers of the chronicle.
B) Each chronicle is required to keep the Global Character Database up to date. Once per month this database must be updated to include new characters, changed status of characters and character advancement.
Article Six: Experience
A) No player may receive more than eight experience points per month, of which no more than six shall be for attendance.
B) Character Creation Points:
C) Storyteller Experience:
Article Seven: Theme
A) UaRM is intended for Garou characters and Garou stories. The great bulk of the characters shall be composed of Werewolves and Kinfolk.
