Axiom of Hell<p> 1. We are an oligarchy. Respect and follow the rule of all higher ranks and the Praetors.<br /> 2. Titles are given on special occasions and must stay up to date. The more you have, the more experienced you seem and the more more and respect you will gain.<br /> 3. New Felis are killed on sight.<br /> 4. Secrecy is a necessity. Traitors and spies are killed on sight.<br /> 5. No emotions, nor talking, is shown on the battlefield.<br /> 6. Respect and trust is earned, not a given right.<br /> 7. Felis is ranked to Tiro automatically at four moons without ceremony. Autopromotion is otherwise prohibited.<br /> 8. Exo is held for Tiro training, outside of camp.<br /> 9. No assigned mentors. Ask anyone to train.<br /> 10. No attacking any Clan in a large, organized fashion. Only the Praetors may organize these every once in awhile. Unless otherwise stated, single and pair raids on a Clan patrol is fine.<br /> 11. Your rank must be in every post. Otherwise you are immediately demoted to Tiro, no matter your original rank. Asking for a promotion or title (medicine rated titles excluded) will result in a similar punishment or removal of all titles.<br /> 12. Members of Pandemonium must have the will to do any task.</p> <p> OOC Reminders<br /> a. No powerplaying or godmodding (names excluded).<br /> b. No ooc fighting. Take it to a private result. Includes no spamming camp.<br /> c. One week irl equates to two moons in rp time (at most).<br /> d. The breaking of the Axiom results in death, demotion, or worse punishment as the Praetors see fit. Banning is not an option.<br /> e. All inactive rp's (without warning) will be demoted to Tiro. This is ignored if the rp'r warned someone Dux or higher.<br /> f. There are very few exceptions to the Axiom. Arguing will most likely make things worse.<br /> g. No shortening your rank!<br /> h. Try to have two sentences per post icly (less enforced) and very little ooc messages (highly enforced).<br /> i. We are a Pact Clan. For more information on this, refer to &quot;phryne fisher&quot; all results. We do not &quot;attend&quot; Gatherings or visit the Moonpool. We also do not associate with Clans other than AshClan, HorseClan, NorthClan, RainClan, the rogues, SandClan, and the Tribe. No exceptions.</p> <p> ~LB</p>

Heart stopping action, suspense, a complex and fascinating hero, magic that is woven into the fabric of the world instead of added on as an extra, beautiful prose! What more could you want?

I started out with Janny's book, "The Mistwraith" and have read all of the following books. I keep hoping we will see some advance and maybe conclusion of this series. Her plot is very detailed, and includes a full spectrum of characters. I check quite often to see if we have a new book avaiable. Keep up the good work.
