In Withmore City, the Code of Militant Justice serves as a guideline for law enforcement but for some crime is a lifestyle. Whether a destitute panhandler, newly blooded ganger, illegal arms dealer, or self-styled urban terrorist; every day is a gambit evading the consequences of breaking the law. Criminal activity is a centerpiece of the thematic class war ever-present in Sindome. As a player, you will find it ubiquitous in coded features and player-influenced lore.
Getting away with it is just a part of the struggle, residents of Withmore City will often need to use every means necessary to get ahead legal or otherwise. In ones earliest forays into crime, consequences can seem overwhelming and brutal at times but the risk often equals the reward. It is important to remember that is not about succeeding or failing but rather telling a story. The web of intrigue woven around even the most innocuous illegal activity can often ripple in ways not perceived.

BOMBINGS ON GREEN AND BLUE
Bombing a place is a large action and we want to be prepared for the world to respond in a realistic way. This could mean ambient SIC messages, screams for help, WJF or Emergency Services responses, News Articles, etc. As such, if you're going to take this action on Green or Blue sector, we want a heads up. This heads up does not mean you won't get away with your crime. It does mean that there will be a response. This response helps make your effort meaningful and impactful. A response from the GMs is NOT a negative thing. We want to help your actions have the impact that you are intending, where possible.
"No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well maybe chalk it up to forced consciousness expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten." - Old Man Thompson
