c) Allows the player a strong measure of free will to choose what the character does
d) The actions chosen by the player shape and influence the story which unfolds during the game.
2) Under Geekdo classifications, this stands for a game which has a separate set of rules differing it from any other role-playing game, even those with similar names.
RPG Item – Geekdo defines this as any single item of role-playing game paraphernalia.
Rules – The explicit part of the system, specified in the text.

Status – See Effects. Usually referring to the condition a character is in due to effects.
Story Games – Are RPGs which focus more on the overall story than character building or rules enforcing.
Most RPGs can be made to be more story driven given the predisposition of the GM/Players, but clearly some RPGs are more tailored to this style of play.
Storyteller – See Game Master.
1) The big-picture of a game’s mechanical choices, including not just rules but also design philosophy etc.
Or from a story point of view: the method in a game by which new facts are added to the fictional setting.
2) Geekdo defines this as a set of base rules used by more than one RPG.
Third-Party – Publications for a game that are from someone other than a game’s current publisher. Often printed under license.
TPK – Total Party Kill. The event of an entire group of player characters in a game being wiped out by a threat or challenge.
Trait(s) – A distinguishing characteristic of a character. This could be the ability for a character to size up a fight
better than most or perhaps the person has exceptional leadership skills.
It doesn’t have to be positive – a bad trait could be a phobia or uncontrollable greed.
Some games give advantages/disadvantages for traits. Traits can be further defined by being assigned
a numeric or textual value to indicate the competency of the ability being described by the name of the Trait.
When numerical, this is normally called an Ability (Typically Strength, Agility, Dexterity, Intelligence) XP – Experience Points.

The Game

Swordsmen Rules : 
1. Do not attack members of the guild outside of sparring.
2. Do not reveal any classified guild information to anyone not cleared for that information.
3. Do not lie to leaders regarding anything relevant to the guild.
4. Any form of direct participation in other guilds or planning with other guilds without the consent of the SwordsMen leaders will be considered treason.
5. Do not initiate combat with those who are not our enemies.
6. Only attack the player that begins the fight without reason.
7. Hacking/cheating is prohibted.
8. Do not act in a manner that may promote self power over others, this applies to both speech and action.
9. Leaders will not heistate to drop members position if rules are violated.
10. Apply these rules to action and speech.

Players that join the guild who violate these rules will not be allowed to join again. Leaders shall be consulted for a determination prior to action. Penalties are strong even though they are not published with these rules. Penalty decisions shall be made only by High Wing Leaders.

Swordsmen Order of the Signet Version 1.0Purpose : To establish, for the better encouragement, information, and dignity of all SwordsMen, a standardized, officially ordained system of recognition for exceptional atitudes contributing to the glory and well-being of the guild.

Theory : The end of recognizing superior performance here delineated acts in a manner complimentary to, not in addition to, the point system. Whereas the point system is a systematic process of reward and penalty for specific actions respectively benefitting or harming the guild, the Signet is intended as a mark of distinction for a general aptitude or capacity. The awarding of it may be provoked by a specific act, but it symbolizes a broader significance.

Judges : Signets will be awarded at the sole discretion of the members of the two Command Wings of SwordsMen.

Criterion : To be recognized with a Signet, a guild member must consistently display remarkable or otherwise exceptional performance in an area, in a way which is somehow beneficial to the guild.

Process : When a member is determined by the Command Wings to be deserving of a Signet in an area after some period of evaluation and consideration, they will be notified promptly and a ceremony time will be scheduled, with the designee’s need and convenience taking the highest priority.

Restriction : A member may normally only receive one Signet in a given area. As a Signet is not linked to a specific act but a general aptitude, this is appropriate. In extremely exceptional cases, a Double Signet may be awarded. To ensure that the unparalelled standard of this honor is maintained, only one person may hold a Double Signet in any category at any time.

Presentation : A Signet will be formally presented to a guild member in a ceremony on a private server, unless the designee and the Command Wings members concur that a public ceremony is appropriate.

The Signet of War (red) – combat (all forms)
The Signet of HTML (yellow) – writing HTML
The Signet of Graal Designs (green) – level design, NPC scripting
The Signet of Diplomacy (blue) – inter-guild relations
The Signet of Leadership (purple) – intra-guild relations
The Signet of Art (white) – drawing, storywriting, etc.
The Signet of Sacrifice (gray) – dedication, hard work
Swordsmen Signet (blue, white, grey, black) – highest award given
