Appendix of Unwritten Rules (until Now)

  1. The GM is always right
  2. When the GM is wrong, Rule 1 applies
  3. The RA is always right except when Rule 1 applies and there shall be no defence.
  4. The RA checks on proper behaviour before, during and between runs. It is left to the RA's discretion as to whether he will ignore any transgression, give a private reprimand or make a charge. If a charge is made a penalty will automatically follow.
  5. The penalty for any transgression is one down-down, except when the charge is severe, when a penalty with shame shall apply. A penalty with shame is a down-down on ice if any is available.
  6. Beer is to be drunk when down-downing or poured over your own head. Excessive waste may result in a second down-down with shame.
  7. All standard Hash rules always apply!.
  8. With joyous heart, every Hasher will give Hash Cash Subs when they are due, or be called miserable bastards. New Hashers and guests have one free run.
  9. Anyone having knowledge of a transgression by a fellow Hasher may make a charge during the down-downs. A charge will always result in a penalty for the accused, the accuser, or both, at the discretion of the GM or RA. Charges from the pack can be defended, but poor defence will result in a penalty with shame (see Rule 5).
  10. Intelligence is neither required nor appreciated at Hash. Thinking on the run is a punishable offence.
  11. Short-cutting is allowed. Being caught short cutting is a serious offence (see Rule 10). A short-cutter will be known as an SCB (Short Cutting Bastard).
  12. At more or less regular intervals, every Hasher will be asked to set a run. Since being a Hare is a great honour, refusals are neither expected nor accepted. If the run is passably good, the Hares will be awarded a down-down. If the run or anything about the run is considered to be below standard for POMH3, the Hares may face the great honour of the Pisspot (see Rule 13).
  13. Extreme violators will be awarded the Pisspot, which is to be held until the next run. The offender must not lose the sacred vessel or he shall be fined a Keg and punished further at the pleasure of the GM and/or RA.
  14. Silent running is a punishable offence. (see Rule 17)
  15. After completing 100, 150, etc. runs, a Hasher will have the privilege of setting a run and even offer a t-shirt as a show of good faith, accompanied by a Down Down.
  16. Every Hasher will be given a Hash Name after approximately three runs. They will subsequently be known only by this Hash Name. Failure to observe this rule will result in a down down or fine. If you do not like the name you are given, stiff shit! Hashing isn't for you. (See 10 Commandments)
  17. The Hash has Internationally accepted forms of communication on the run: -
    1. When ON flour shout 'On-On'.
    2. When Checking shout 'Checking'.
    3. When calling someone back to the correct trail shout 'On Back'.
    4. All calling must be at an appropriately high decibel level. Failure to comply will result in a charge under Rule 14. Hashers caught shouting 'On-On' when not in sight of flour will be charged with misleading the Hash. (See Rule 23).
  18. All Hashers should be strongly committed to the Hash and attend gatherings whenever possible. Irregular attendance will be noticed and charged.
  19. The Hash is a non-competitive run through the local countryside, sewers, dumps and settlements in order to encourage a thirst for beer that should already exist. Aggressive running is totally banned and is a punishable offence. Aggressive runners will be called FRB's (Front Running Bastards). Persistent FRB's may be awarded a down-down prior to a run to curb their enthusiasm.
  20. No crop bashing will occur during the run. Down-down with shame to the offenders, and the possibility of paying compensation to some person who doesn't even own the land.
  21. Stationary checking or refusal to check when so required by the GM or RA will undoubtedly result in a charge.
  22. If the keg is sighted on the run, then the run is officially over and the Hash may proceed to the beer by the most direct route. Hares will automatically find themselves punished under Rules 12 and 13.
  23. Leading the Hash astray is easy. However, the perpetrator of this crime will surely be made to suffer.
  24. The rules are not comprehensive and therefore rule 25 applies.
  25. The GM can add, delete or change, any rule, at any time. No public announcement will be deemed necessary, however transgressions will still result in a charge.
  26. The Hash is democratic and fair but will obey the GM in all matters.
