My team has worked throughout the week on a sword tournament that is to be on Friday. During this time, I've been working toward the people of the group to become aligned with what IC and OOC is, beings it was the class we ran this week for our newer players in the academy. During the week I've also spoken with the team, on being probably the very first group to allow female avatars to join a sword tournament, which this Friday will be OOC.
While they understand where I'm coming from, they have also came back with the conclusion that I should not specifically write in the rules that we will allow female avatars. Their reasoning are the following:
1. Not everyone truly understands the dept of how much OOC is OOC and will label we are GE, even if we do not allow females to run around with swords in IC.
2. Do I know the amount of chaos it would cause if one of the males lost to a female?
They say the solution to the whole thing is to do a dagger tournament for the females next time.
I'm just stuck in the mud again, trying to figure out when the right time will be where one can run a tournament that is co ed.
What do you all think?
I should have never cut her hair!
