    PGC AGENDA: December 2012


    News
Player's Guild Council Formed
The three separate councils of the Player's Guild have been combined to the Player's Guild Council. We look forward to working together on various topics and learning the nuances of economics, roleplay and science from our colleagues.

    New Regulations
Cybernetics Guidelines
A new guideline has been established regarding the creation of cyborgs based on the level of augmentation and power of canon cyborgs. We are finishing the vote and awaiting Whill approval.

Changes to Fleet Regulations
The former GSTC Councilors and HC Taung have hammered out some new Fleet regulations. We are currently awaiting approval from the Whills before they are unveiled to the site at large.

The Patent Office
The Galactic Patent Office is slowly being unveiled. Watch the council for more updates in the future.


    Council Membership
High Councilor Dav Man'sell has retired from service to the Player's Guild. We wish him the best of luck and thank him for his years of dedication to the former GRPC and the new Player's Guild.

High Councilor Atlantis Vyridian has rejoined the Player's Guild. Atlantis fills the position left open by Dav Man'sell. We welcome Atlantis back to the Player's Guild staff and look forward to working together.
