BRTD does request loyalty from its members therefore any characters on VS and NC needs to be on alternative servers.
When you've been added as a recruit you are on a 'trial period' - that is a period of time for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know us. This is dependent on how active you are and so it is essential to be with us on Mumble. This will usually last around one month. During this time you will be asked to use our tags as 'Recruit' (in lower case) so it is easier to distinguish that you are new with us. We can rename on mumble to have the recruit tag.
We get together and have a meeting every Third Sunday at 10PM GMT and , it is at these meetings where you will be granted your full membership if you have been active and have the right attitude to be a member of Better Red Than Dead.
*Please note, some requirements are subject to discretion - if you have any queries regarding the application process, please message one of our Moderators or Recruitment officers.

We have our own server for our members and players to talk to each other on. You can download it here (download client). Once you have it downloaded and installed open it up at the top menu select Connections and Connect. Here you must enter the server address, port and a nickname for yourself. As per our rules please ensure that the nickname you use on Mumble is the same as the one you use on the website.
