...we don't want to get overly detailed to a point where the canonical 'rules' of the system become oppressive to free storytelling. We want there to be enough room for people to have fun in this universe. And sometimes that means not parsing things out too finely. Next, a word on the nuts and bolts. This is an open universe. That means anyone is able to write in it, talk about it, create for it, without having to get prior permission. Stories do not have to be canon compliant; it's up to you, as creator, how close you want to stick to the 'rules' of the universe. On the other hand, that obviously means that not everything will be considered universe-canonical. It's up to you how much you want to incorporate other people's ideas and creations.
According to the AKB 'verse slaves are freeze branded. It isn't said what with. I feel it would be something small and universally acknowledged. Such as a particular design that has come to designate slave. I'm thinking an S that resembles a figure kneeling. This is what a freeze brand looks like on human skin.
