I thought it was really weird that we recognized TEAPOT but neither the RMB RP community nor Urth, so here we go. This was signed off by the roleplay representatives and then I brought it to the affected communities, who seemed to be of the same mind. I’m looking to do some edits and touch-ups but I don’t expect many people, if anyone, to be against the concept as a whole. I must also note that Wiranath would like to kick your shins. This is unrelated to the topic at hand.
