    1. Traditionally, when a writer is writing a story, the fate of the Plot is in their hands. They have a lot of power and should not shy away from writing stories that involve more than a couple characters. This is fundamental to good group writing. If we stick to our own characters and side stories, the Plot doesn't go much of anywhere.
    2. Respect each pilot's characters. They've put a lot of work into them, so if you're going to do something drastic with their character, ask them first (unless they don't care).
    3. Respect the style of our plotting. For example, having a Gungan Death Star attack RS would fall outside the realm of RS Plot believability.
    4. If you feel cramped, get stuck, or just don't know what to write about, do not hesitate to talk to another writer.
    5. Traditionally, our characters are like ourselves. Thus, the better you get to know your fellow RS writers, the more comfortable you'll be able to write about them. Being able to write about each other is fundamental to group story writing.
    6. If you feel intimidated by huge "epic" stories, don't. By no means are you encouraged to write that much. Those stories are just collections of ideas gathered over a long period of time and written as one story instead of many.
    7. Have fun! You're writing for your own enjoyment, the enjoyment of others, and the whole learning experience involved in being in a writing support group like RS ;-)

8. The RS Plot makes poor SW fan fiction. SW fan fic takes existing characters, stories, and a universe and builds off of them, doing a notable job of staying consistent with the SW canon. As we write the RS Plot we pick and choose what we like from the SW canon, ignoring the rest, and are inspired greatly by other outside sources. Thus, the SW characters of the RS Plot are much more like ourselves (in our superhero forms) and our adventerous lives (the ones we're currently living in an alternate universe).

It's not cliche SW fan fic. It's the Plot as we see fit to create it.
