To my Fellow Caledonians, especially those of the Red Team:
First, I offer my apologies, for my actions based on *ignorance*. When I joined the Blue team several days ago, I was under the impression I was an accepted member of the rp. There was a lack of communication between Miss Lapin and Colonel Scaggs, and they never added me to the third rp group of which both teams were members. So I never heard the announcement of a second attack launch time. When I enetered the Red Camp, I had done so with the understanding that the combat had already begun. As it was in the heat of battle, I was really paying no attention to the normal chat. I never saw requests for returning to my camp in normal chat, and was not aware there was a command to return to camp in the third encompassing rp chat. So I attacked.
Now I know *nothing* of orbitting, except at the very outset, when i accidently killed one of my own team members in the distance, thinking red team was invading our camp, and that team member then orbitted me. After that point, I was working my way on my own to your camp. The entire time I used Ordinal Malaprop's revolver. Everyone I shot, "died" according to the HUD, myself included. Not one person I shot was orbited. After I "died" the 5th time, I withdrew from the field of battle to the medics' tents, where I pretty much sat out most of the second half of the combat as a wounded soldier. While I lie in the tents as a wounded, I was attacked several times by red team members. I grumbled to the medical staff about it, and about why no one else would avail the uses of the Dr.'s and nurses in the field. But I didn't make a stink of it to anybody else.
As far as flags go...I tried *multiple* times to steal the flag you were carrying. Oddly, I wasn't able to take it from you. I automatically *assumed* it was a glitch. It never even crossed my mind that you made a false flag, or tinkered with the flag to make it unobtainable. As lag was incredibly high, I wrote it off as that.
After the combat was over, I was accused of cheating. That broke my heart. I LITERALLY (in RL) cried for three hours over that. Anybody who knows me should know that my behaviour in Caledon has almost 99.999999% consistently had been one of behaving *honourably*. Goddess, I would never risk loosing friends (and I would like to think I have friends on both teams), over a stupid, old silly "capture the flag game". I found out *after the fact* that I had upset people, but God and Goddess is my witness, I *never* intentionally tried to harm anybody, nor did I ever intend to cheat. I do apologize for my actions, but I hope with all my heart that you all recognize that what I have done was done out of *ignorance*. If I had known there was a third chat group, I would have asked to be made a member of it. If that would have been the case, I would have heard the command not to commence the attack yet, and I ***NEVER*** would have attacked red team till the signal was given. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me. I have been close to tears (RL), all day over this, anguishing over the potential loss of friends because of this fiasco. And to me, my friends in Caledon are dear to my heart, and I desire to lose none of them.
