Elysium's Holiday Policy

Here on the Elysium, we recognize that the holiday season is an important time for all concerned regardless of race, religion and creed. Thus with this in mind, from the 12th of December, the posting regulations will be relaxed to allow for those who need to, to travel and to spend time with their families. During the period 12th of December until the 3rd of January, players are not required to post, but may do so, if they wish.

On the 4th of January the posting regulations will be back in force and a roll call will be issued. Players will be expected to reply to the roll call within a 7 day period and also expected to post 1 solo post within 7 days after the resumption of normal posting regulations.
