Game Rules

The following is list of violations of Game Rules. If the felonious player holds multiple accounts, all accounts may be subjected to the same punishment. (That is to say, the offender is a person behind any given number of accounts, not just a particular account). Game Staff reserves the right to interpret these laws in certain situations to maintain the spirit of the said laws.

Multiple Accounts
You are allowed only one game account per individual. Individuals who are found to have multiple accounts (also known as 'multis') will have all additional accounts deleted immediately and without warning. If you know of friends/relatives that also play on the same IP as you, please notify a member of staff for a note to be added to your account.

Do not deliberately access another person's account without their prior consent. This also includes giving any links or sites that cause people to do things within their account without their knowledge or consent. Logging into or using another person's account without express permission will result in deletion of any/all of the offender's accounts. To clarify the account sharing issue, you cannot share an account with another person. You may 'baby-sit' or 'take care of' someone's account, but you may not use another person's account as your own for a prolonged period of time. This rule is mainly in place to deal with situations where two people claim ownership over an account.

Under no circumstances are you allowed to pay users to suicide against you.

Bug Abuse
If you come across a bug, you are responsible for ensuring you do not tell other users about this bug, but contact a staff member or use the Contact Form to send details to the Game Owner directly.

Inappropriate Names
Should you be deemed to have an inappropriate name, your name will be changed by a Staff Member and a message sent asking for a replacement name which will then be edited again for you. Should you feel a user has an inappropriate name, please contact a member of staff for their opinion.

Do not impersonate other players and do not change names or how it appears to anything having to do with staff or imail players telling them you're staff. Victims of this should report any activity as such to a true Staff Member as found on the Staff List.

Mass One-way Transactions
Many people have access to two or more PCs, thus we cannot count on IPs to help us catch all players using more than one account to cheat on this game. So, anyone caught sending massive (multiple) amounts of gems, gold, and/or resources will be considered to be a multi, and will be treated as such. This includes using a clan or a middle man as a means of transferring these funds. Both accounts will be jailed, and all funds removed from the game. If you wish to explain your transactions, get in contact with a staff member. Remember... Everything is logged...

External Trading
Do not trade currency, items, or characters in this game for something out-of-game. You may not give your character to anybody. Doing so defeats the purpose of the game. If you are caught doing so, both parties involved may be punished.

Flooding Chat
Intentionally spamming or flooding the chat rooms or other communication venues such as a player's inboxes will result in a punishment. Spamming of inboxes includes any form of producing a mass amount of messages i.e. sending small amounts of any item repeatedly, abusing mass clan messages, or the same or similar message repeatedly.

Player Harassment
Game Staff determine when communication crosses the line and becomes abusive. This is not to say everyone must play nice; this is a combat/competitive game after all. The harassment law only applies to continued and targeted harassment of a particular person, not sporadic insults. The following language assumes a staff member has deemed the interaction as continued harassment. Public harassment of fellow players will result in punishment for the offender. In general, private communications are just that, private, and not subject to decency or harassment laws. Players are encouraged to use the provided privacy tools to stop harassment (e.g. Message Blacklist). With that said, persons who attempt to undermine the privacy tools will also get punished. Degratory comments regarding other countries/races will not be allowed, nor will comments regarding stereotypes about those countries/races.

Staff Harassment
Any complaints against staff will be offered in a clear, courteous manner, free of profanity and overflowing in wit and charm. Slanderous/personal attacks/profane communications against staff members will not be tolerated, and will result in the offending remarks being removed and punishment applied. Should you have an issue with any member of staff, contact the Game Owner.

The account owner is responsible for their account at all times. This means if your friends/family/pet dog logged into your account and causes trouble, you will be held responsible. Keep your username and password secure as you would for any other site or the pin number for your home alarm system or credit card.

Player-Staff Interaction
Both players and staff are expected to co-exist in a polite and respectful environment. This applies to professional interaction only as there are instances when the staff member is acting in the capacity of a player and not a member of staff. This is not to say a staff member may become abusive and claim they were acting in a player capacity, but it does mean a staff member need not be stoic at all times. They are volunteers and players too, and need/have the right to relax/get into arguments, too. This should never be the case in professional settings, though (i.e. Staff Help requests).

Wrongful Accusations
If you feel you have been wrongfully accused, please use the Contact Form to contact the Game Owner

Do not try and use/exploit loopholes in the rules. Doing so will result in you receiving punishment greater than the rule you attempted to use a loophole with. Repeated attempts of trying to use loopholes to get around rules will result in an extended punishment as according to the rules.
