Rules and info.

Official group on Steam steamcommunity.com/groups/OBFC Better to join the Steam group instead of giving out Steam addresses when you join the group. The join system is set to auto for the group, so we can't see them.

Help us upgrade to a super group. Cake and beer promised but not guaranteed orange-box-group.deviantart.co….

Tired of Chris trolling this section with Brony crap? Then make suggestions here anyways orange-box-group.deviantart.co…
