The 42nd Virginia is a relatively new unit to North and South, but we also play War of Rights and various other games with the organization of which we are a part. We are looking for mature members, though age is not too important as long as you are willing to listen and be respectful of your peers and officers. Being a new unit, there is a great deal of room for advancement for those who are interested and have what it takes.
In our community, it is important that all feel welcome, and that at the end of the day we all have a good time. With that in mind we have four core values that we adhere to. Respect:
It is the right of every member to be treated with respect no matter the circumstances. Equality:
Under our relatively few regulations, every member from the newest greenhorn to the saltiest veteran officer is considered to have the same rights and freedoms.Freedom:
We believe that our members should be free to do as they wish as long as they do not harm anyone else or infringe on their rights. While we do expect people to keep commitments, we understand that life happens and that it can be easy to get burned out under too much pressure. So have fun and relax with us while you're here.Diversity:
We do not judge people based on their personal lives. Whether you are the straightest, whitest manly-man or you identify as a pan-trans-attack-helicopter-unicorn from Venus named Geraldine, we welcome you so long as you don't hurt anyone.
The Four Rights of Members
Keeping in line with our values, the Four Rights of Members is our guideline for the community and how we should interact with one another. I.The right of every person to be respected and treated as an equal shall not be infringed.
Basically, don't be a jerk to people or intentionally provoke them. If you do so by accident, apologize. II. The right of every member to PRIVATELY receive correction (If Needed)shall not be infringed.
We've all been there. Your superior didn't like something you did and chewed you out in front of everyone. That won't happen here. If it is something like being out of line in drill, they'll just let you know to fix it, respectfully. But if you are accused of doing something serious like attacking or harassing someone, you'll be talked to in private. III. The right of every member to speak what they will (except topics that belittle others) without repercussion by admin shall not be infringed.
We believe in freedom of speech, but we must also ensure that we speak to each other respectfully. It's a balance. I won't say that we are very PC, but going out of your way to say something that is generally considered off sides isn't okay. IV. The right of FSG to deem any conversation inappropriate and ask the topic to change shall be recognized.
Sometimes conversations can get heated, especially in today's political climate. We have no problem with discussion of touchy or charged subjects, but if someone asks to change the subject, please respect their wishes.
NaS Historical Campaigners
Currently, one of our main projects is Historical Campaigners. HC is a persistent war between two factions (currently the Union and Confederacy) played out over a few months. Imagine old school Battlefront in galactic conquest with line battles. It's a whole lot of fun. I'll put a video from a recent battle at the bottom of this post for your enjoyment.
