It doesn't mean ERP, if that helps. The angle we have on mature is this - The Trek stories being told within this fleet are violent and sometimes visceral, as is fitting the wartime setting. Characters might develop attachments IC to other characters - that's fine as we love to character development. What people choose to do behind closed doors isn't really subject matter we RP or put on screen, if that makes sense?

A good number of the players in the fleet are mature adults as well, therefore we're trying to set the tone for recruitment - Ideally Mature means people talk to each other openly, honestly to avoid the dreaded drama llama showing up. We totally good off on our OOC channels, don't get me wrong... even with a bunch of us in our 30's or 40's 'mature' doesn't always apply when fun is concerned. Mature, hopefully, also means that making other players' enjoyment is a priority to you, as much as your own.

Heavy RP - We RP in spatial all the time. We RP on our Fleet channel requesting docking instructions. We don't simulate the strictest military regulations, but we feel we simulate the ideals of Starfleet and the Federation. We do have regular uniform inspections. We do RP through STF's, Fleet events and other content in the vast majority of cases. We do use the Foundry to make story telling platforms that would be terrible for grinding dailies, but perfect for a GM to use to deliver an evenings worth of content.

In summary...

Mature means a) Hard hitting stories you might not have seen on TV in the 90's. b) experienced players who have a kind of professionalism and camaraderie that reduces ooc drama issues.

Heavy RP means - RPing darn near everywhere all the time. In-Character Actions have In-Character Consequences. (ICA=ICC)

Does that help?
