Final Note On Corruption
Corruption as a whole should be utilized in two main ways, to benefit law enforcement agendas as a whole or in a manner which is consistent with your well-developed character story. Mindless corruption is not allowed and gives the PD a bad name. Examples are as follows;
  • Your partner was killed by a gang, you now harbor ill-will towards said gang and are corrupt to catch the killer or shut them down.
  • You as a boy, grew up in a family which held unreasonably racist views which rubbed off on you. You now dislike a local Asian community.
  • While on patrol, your leg is broken and you become addicted to pain medication. Your addiction persists long after you heal.
These rules have been authorized by the OwlGaming Faction Management Team (FMT) since January 17th, 2015
