Q: When will recruitment open?
A: We do not have a solid date on that yet. We are waiting on some final details from the server developers and we are working on finalizing a few internal faction affairs.
Q: Do I need any outside knowledge of medicine or anatomy?
A: Absolutely not! There is no required outside knowledge. We have detailed, yet accessible guides that will help guide your roleplay. We want you to learn by experience, to use the guides while you roleplay, and to mainly have fun. We strive for accessibility and fun, but try to maintain realistic roleplay.
