Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

    Special Circumstances

    Special Circumstances

    Sentry and Royal Guard:
    • You should always show proper deference.
    • You should bow your head or salute crisply when on duty and encounter a member of the Royal family.
    • You should are exempt from bowing if you are in the middle of chasing a criminal.


    Royal Pages and other Servants:
    • You should always show proper deference.
    • You should bow crisply and make your presence known as unobtrusively as possible when summoned by anyone.


    If any are interested in the rules for Courtiers and above, they may certainly write requesting the lists. Any questions may be sent to myself and I will reply via missive, in person, through a formal meeting or even upon the boards.

    • You must show proper deference upon entering a room.
    • You must show proper deference upon leaving a room.
    • If you are passing through, a polite, but unobtrusive acknowledgment should be given.
    • You should not make a scene of an entrance or exit without due cause.
    • You should ask your betters for leave if you have been in the same room for a time.
    • You should not ask for leave if such would cause interruption to the better.
    • You should give your deference to the "companion*", if available, of the better if the better is occupied.
    • You should not interrupt a conversation unless invited to join or it is open for discussion.
    • If at a social, you should pay reverence to those of greater rank and then everyone else.
    • When leaving a social, you should take your leave of the host as well as your betters.


    * A companion may be any personal servant or designated escort.

    Dear Denizens,

    Below you will find a simplified list of how one should handle entering and leaving a room and acknowledgements per rank, up to Honored Guest.

    As with most societal rules, they are subject to change with the times, and any changes to protocol will be posted for general education.
