Cheese or Cheesing is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as it isn't misused...
but building stupidly optimized characters and then using them to kill or dominate other
player characters is frowned upon.

is club policy to actively involve new players in plot, and avoid killing off new characters
until they've had a chance to get
used to the game. This is not an excuse to abuse the the system, though...|
