IMPORTANT!! Fake badges and US ID's Alert!

Just to let ya'll know there have been several incidents around the US of fake Military ID's and other "Official Document's" being passed off as the real thing as of late. I know we as costumers we strive on realism, but please, please, please DO NOT try to pass off these doc's as the real thing! As a member of the law enforcement community for over twenty years I have seen these in real life and have put people on the pavement for it, I did'nt like it but that is part of my job. The fines are very stiff ($10,000-50,000) and jail time (5-10 years in prison). So take care not to make them too real, I hate for anyone to get into unwarrented trouble. Or at least watch out for the people who want to make things harder for the rest of us.

To the crew of the Iliad: If you are getting costuming IDs - while you want them to meet the 10 ft rule for costuming purposes, please make sure they look like costumers' IDs to any law enforcement personnel who might be checking. As SPECWAR pointed out - it's wiser to put them away when you're outside the location where you are doing the costuming activity. No sense in getting yourself in unnecessary trouble over a good quality costuming accessory.

I'm working with Nate to get some SG style namtags designed, once the format is verified, they be added to the Quartermaster Corp area and can be ordered by our members.

Like the Chief said, if you're outside the area where you're costuming, put all costume ID's away. Heck, I used to go so far as to take off the jacket with the patches if we were making a run to get fast food or something. Seems like common sense, but we all know people who can sometimes forget things when they get busy at a con or event!
