Terms of Service

Do not be abusive or otherwise harass others. You may not divulge personal information about others without their permission. This includes telephone numbers, addresses, etc. All personal out-of-game issues should be left OUT of game. Do not involve our Staff in your personal disputes unless in-game abuse has occurred. This does not include characters as you have the choice to hide or reveal who you are in game. However, you cannot impersonate another player without permission of that specific player. If you feel you are being harassased in game please /ignore the character that is harassing you, and if they bypass the ignore function please save a copy of the game log and email admin@ember-online.com.


The security of your account, characters, and their possessions is YOUR responsibility. If any person other than you knows what your password is, your characters are NOT secure. Sharing accounts is PROHIBITED , even with people you live with. Likewise, because of the nature of our banning system your decisions may affect any other players that live with you. You should be ready to accept the consequences if they violate the rules and get banned from the game. We will do all we can to assist if your character or account is the victim of abuse, however we will not replace missing items, gold, etc.


You are only allowed to have one character on at a time, any attempts to bypass this limit will result in a ban.

YOU or YOUR GUILD are allowed to kill someone 2 times an hour. Guild kills are announced in game and in your guild discord, so there is no reason to not be informed. This is a general rule and we retain the right to handle each occurrence on a case by case basis. (For example, attempting to be sly and disband guild/going incognito just so you can kill a player several more times.)


This does NOT include if the player or party commits a hostile action on you first (attacking, stealing gold, drop stealing, etc) after they have died twice in a row.

If you advertise buying or selling anything for non-game items you will be banned and the items or characters could potentially be confiscated and destroyed. If you do purchase something for non-game items our staff is NOT responsible; after all you're not buying anything from us. Regardless if you buy or sell, if you are caught, a heavy or permanent ban will be imposed.


Premium Items: You can gift any single premium purchase (Purchases that aren't packs) once every 3 months. This purchase is not to be traded or sold in any shape or form and MUST BE A GIFT ONLY! Doing so in excess of this allowance will earn you and the buyer a permanent ban and any items in question will be removed.


Cheating of any kind will NOT be tolerated, especially by our own staff. If you see any evidence of cheating you should immediately send an email of the incident to admin@ember-online.com with all of the details that you can provide. Cheating includes but is not limited to any activity that gives you an unfair or unintended advantage over other players. Please be aware all actions taken on staff characters are fully logged and reviewed regularly by the game's administrator. Please remember that our staff is volunteering their time to make this game a better place for you, any accusations of cheating should be directed to the administrator and not aired like dirty laundry in a public forum or global chat.


You CAN be banned in game for inappropriate activity on the message boards and the wiki. Racism, personal attacks, and false staff corruption claims that occur in game, public discord channels, or on the forums will also result in a ban using the below hierarchy. These platforms are all part of the community that makes up our game world and your actions in one area will impact how you are treated in the others.
If you find yourself banned, your ONLY option is to send an email to admin@ember-online.com. If these matters are taken to the message boards or any other public platform instead, you will lose the right to appeal your ban. Banning does happen by mistake on occasion, and sending us an email will allow us to investigate the matter and get you back online as quickly as possible if that is determined to be the appropriate action.

Accounts


Each player is allowed one game account. Under no circumstances should a player access a secondary account, whether it is owned by them or anyone else, for any reason. Any player found logging in to multiple accounts may be subject to disciplinary actions ranging from a warning to a ban (depending on the number of infractions). Should the account belong to another player, that player will also be subject to the same consequences depending on their history with account sharing. These infractions, if they result in lost or stolen accounts/items or any other grievances, will not be subject to support from Staff or be influenced in any way on our end. There is no legitimate reason for logging in to someone else's account, or for having a second account, with no exceptions.

3rd offense) 6 month ban and deletion of all accounts

Character trading or having someone level your character is at your own risk. The owner of the character is the current account the character is on. As soon as the character is transferred to another account, it is NO LONGER YOUR CHARACTER and staff will not intervene in any situation afterwards. There are no exceptions or grounds for appeal on this.
