Founding members and adjutants post here. All those who wish to become a part of G.R.O.S.S. must swear fealty to the founding members

G.R.O.S.S. is not a team, we are a society.

We are easily the most prestigious group on the Vine. Though not the oldest, we have been the movers and shakers behind many of the happenings here.

We only get rid of Slimy girls. That's a very small number of individuals.

what is fealty?

#23 Posted by Cosmic Sentinel (3749 posts) - - Show Bio

This seems like one of those things I ignored when it was cool and underground, then jumped on the band wagon when it became popular and every n00b wants to join. Like Firefly (only waited 4 years). And Kevin Smith movies (my first one was Jay and Silent Bob).

Am I warm?

Cryo-Wolf says:

"what *is* fealty?"

fe·al·ty (fē'əl-tē)

n. pl. fe·al·ties

The fidelity owed by a vassal to his feudal lord.

The oath of such fidelity.

Faithfulness; allegiance.

G.R.O.S.S. is recruiting. You may petition to join by posting here.

  1. You must receive three (3) "yes" votes from the founding members in order to become a member.

  2. Once admitted to the society, you must swear fealty to the founders and to the society.

  3. You may continue to be a part of any team on the Vine you choose, with the understanding that your ultimate allegiance belongs to the society.

  4. You may not act in the name of the society in any RPG without the express approval of the founders.

  5. You become a member for life. The only honorable way out of G.R.O.S.S. is via ritual suicide. If you depart from the Vine without taking your own life, you are eternally marked as a traitor to the society.

  6. The founders may make up additional conditions at any time in the future.

We will outline the benefits of membership in a future posting.

To my fellow founders: Feel free to add to and otherwise embellish this list.

7) All members must participate in the Calvinball game held at the annual G.R.O.S.S. family picnic.

8) Stop snitchin'.

More rules to come.

Well we're the founders because we were the first. You can't really become a founder...unless of course you have some sort of time travel machine.

Rule 9. All time travel machines or devices in the possession of members of G.R.O.S.S. become the shared property of the society.

You're swearing fealty to the entire society, not just us.

I know I couldn't be a founder but as for swearing fealty to the founders, I was just going by the rules, as listed:

Prodigious Man says:

"2. Once admitted to the society, you must swear fealty to the founders and to the society."

Though that time machine idea is nice.

#50 Posted by Prodigal Son (3473 posts) - - Show Bio

I vote yes for Ms. Invisible.

Forever, are you petitioning for membership?

As for swearing fealty to the founders as well as the society, I will amend the rule thus:

"2. Once admitted to the society, you must swear fealty to the to the society, and demonstrate loyalty to its founders and your fellow members."
