Dystopic: Prometheus Contracts

After two weeks in Miami, the characters were also given a choice of two contracts.  One was an Associate contract and was meant to be signed on ordinary paper.  Associates could pick and choose the amount of time they spent in service to Prometheus, kind of like contractors.  The other was the Member contract and needed to be signed on special paper with a special pen using a syllable of the signee's True Name.  I actually wrote up the two contracts and put the Associate contract on ordinary paper and the Member contract on special paper.  I then had them sign OOCly the contract of their choice.  A few of the players even chose to look up how to spell their character's names using the alphabet from their character's country of origin.

I thought I'd reproduce those contracts here for your information:


Membership Contract

I, the undersigned, accept the terms and conditions set out in this contract.  As a member, I understand that I will be assigned a budget line according to the needs of my project from which my salary is drawn.  I can apply to my handler for additional funding or to requisition temporary equipment.  I am also aware that I will be granted access to sensitive information and locations and will treat such things accordingly.  I acknowledge and accept my rights and responsibility and those of the other members and associates of the Prometheus Project. 

Rights

·         140 days of annual / personal leave.  This can be taken in batches of up to 60 days with no questions asked although four weeks notice must be given.
·         May request medical treatment from a skilled Asharu twice a year.
·         May expect sanctuary for myself and up to five other individuals who have a blue listing (civilian non-threat) or higher clearance.
·         To be reimbursed for previously agreed upon expenses.
·         To be reimbursed for unexpected expenses subject to handler’s approval.
·         To be able to select my mission from up to three options wherever possible, although I understand that in some instances a mission may be too urgent to be denied without approval from superior officers.
·         To be assigned missions appropriate to my skills and experience or that of my team.
·         To have my celestial name and personal information kept confidential.
·         To have access to my handler, or a delegated handler, within 24 hours of an attempted contact.
·         To have access to my handler’s celestial name.
·         To refuse to assault declared staunch allies and instead work with the Prometheus Project to determine an alternative.  Where no alternative can be found to be allowed to leave the mission.
·         I may seek a review or an appeal of a decision.
·         I may request access to approved information of my security clearance.

Responsibilities

·         Report any likely connections to Earthbound.
·         Do not work with Earthbound.
·         Avoid communicating with, or drawing the attention of, Earthbound.
·         Do not betray the organisation, its ideals, or membership.
·         Decline missions that you cannot bring yourself to follow, do not undermine them.
·         Do not reveal the names of other members, associates or friendlies.
·         Do not reveal classified information to those who lack clearances.  Some information may be disseminated to others according to your best judgement.  This is any information of a clearance level equal to or below your own that isn’t marked ‘Eyes Only’.  When in doubt, ask your handler.
·         Do not reveal the location of safe houses without prior authorisation.
·         Do not reveal information on rituals, technologies, or other such matters developed by the Prometheus Project without prior authorisation.
·         If you notice a health and safety risk in a safe house or other Prometheus Project site, please notify your handler or the site manager.
·         Respect assigned Masquerade ratings in your surrounding area.
·         If you notice a security risk, please notify your handler.  If the risk involves your handler, please contact your assigned den mother.

I agree to all of the above rights and responsibilities and hereby pledge myself to the Prometheus Project.
