REMOVING PEOPLE FROM THE SHELTER
© 2006 RogueTurtle.com

Under extreme conditions, people (individuals or groups) may be asked (or forced) to leave the shelter for the good of the group. This has to be a unanimous decision by the entire group, or the group will splinter into factions working against each other. Under extreme conditions, this could be the equivalent of a death sentence. If the person or group being asked to leave has money or property invested in the shelter, they can demand repayment or replacement for lost goods. This is not unreasonable and, if at all possible, should be done. Nobody can replace their time spent on the group...and if they are being forced out of the shelter, their time probably wasn't well spent anyway. There is no need to compensate them for their time. Nobody gets paid in a survival shelter.

Extreme reasons for removal would include: Murder, rape, any action/inaction that leads to injury or death of another member, use of drugs, theft, hoarding vital goods/food, or any other action the group agrees is just too much to live with. Just being a "pain in the ass" is not good enough for a death sentence, is it? You don't need a trial by jury. Just a unanimous decision from the group is good enough.

Depending on the size of the group being asked/forced to leave, manpower in the shelter is going to be affected. Jobs that the person/group used to do (however poorly) must now be reassigned to others. The disruption from the normal routine will shake up the group more than you realize. This presents the leader with a new challenge: Put it all back together again.
