Keep yourself aware of accidental metagaming.
I've noticed since I joined a Seraph company (Condor represent) that people tend to accidentally metagame the fact that my characters are with the Seraph. Several people have emoted about their character avoiding the Seraph or being startled by Seraph presence when either of my characters have been around, despite the fact that there is no way to identify them as Seraph ICly.

Kai is auxiliary - she only does secretary work officially. She has no badge except the little paper badge she folded herself and slathered in glitter glue to make it shiny. There's literally no way to tell she's employed with the Seraph unless you know her and/or have heard her talking about it. A stranger finding Kai sitting on the curb should not think to avoid her because of their criminal history.

My more recent Seraph character has been out of uniform the whole time because she's not supposed to be on duty until she learns some tricks to compensate for being blind. She wears her own personal gear. Yes, she sometimes stands where a Seraph might stand, but so do a lot of people. Yet, someone has asked her about her 'uniform' (whether her personal gear was approved for use).

We have to make sure we're not accidentally metagaming the information above peoples' heads, guys. If your character has never met or heard of another person, be blind to what's on the screen. Ask them if there's some way to determine whatever group they may belong to, rather than assuming that your character would just know. Be careful about what information your character is learning and how.

Maybe a bit about how the whole Living Story, expansions and whatnot work in the RP world?

Unfortunately Beth, this thread is roughly a year and a bit old. While still having good information it, may not be updated anymore. And the above bump was purely because someone is deliciously salty.

Ah, well. Can't blame me for trying at least.
