Dianne DeSha's ""WAR 101" or "So you wanna be in a FK War?"" was written as an addendum to Susan Garrett's "War Tutorial" in response to numerous questions that had not been addressed in the earlier essay.

It covers posting and player etiquette, with general advice about the commitment that anyone playing in a war is taking on.

Topics covered:

  • Post it right!
  • Have a big mailbox!
  • (Private) e-mail is your _friend_!
  • Collaborate with others.
  • Be flexible.
  • FK Wars are _not_ particularly gory.
  • Get permission!
  • No killing! (Or bringing over! ;-)
  • Respect "dibs."
  • Participate in the war as *yourself*--only better [g]
  • The point is really _not_ who wins.
