Rapidfire/Chat Log Thread
Imperium does not have a word minimum, so your posts can be as short as you want them to be. That said, sometimes it's more fun to RP via a chat service, especially for conversation-heavy or silly threads. If you want these threads to be canon, they must be cleaned up and posted in the correct forum, at which point you can claim this.
