Re: [Manuel] 40 year old boomer admins: quit discriminating against modern lingo


You do know that most of the lingo terms being discussed here were present in lexicon of today's youth half a decade before Fortnite was even released, right?

Re: The Addition of A Communications Officer - New Command Role Proposal

The idea of a Captain's personal assistant/secretary has been floating around in my head for a long time. It would certainly free up the Captain to focus on command-oriented tasks, and would be a fun role to play imo.

Re: MRP: Remove murderbone pass from hijack traitors.

If the only fun you can have is mindlessly killing everyone in site until there are more dead than living players, you will find yourself very happily accomodated on anywhere but Manuel. But it isn't the only way to play the game and claiming anything but this is unfun is highly subjective. This st...

Re: Headmin Rulings from Discord

Keep in mind that this is a thread about Headmin Rulings made on Discord, not necessarily the 10-code ruling itself. However, I think that the active discussion highlights how confusion is created when rulings are made on Discord without a corresponding policy thread. Discussion gives context.

Manuel is drifting away from its original purpose. It's supposed to be the MRP server, not the hugbox server. Why did it launch with and still presently has a rule against murderbone? You're conflating purpose with purported means to an end. A 'no murderbone' rule is not a prerequisite for roleplay...
