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.
You are limited to killing a single player three times in about a single hour period., if you are part of a party attacking the player you are considered to have been player killing the person for the purpose of this rule, if the player doing the killing logs off and onto another character to bypass this rule, you are still breaking this rule. If the player being killed logs of their character and onto another character they are free game to be player killed again. After the three kill limit you are not permitted to attack the player again for the remainder of this single hour time period. If you are a thief that has been robbing someone constantly, you are not protected by this rule. If you are a paladin/guardian who protects someone this rule does not apply to you. For One-A-Days and areas where you obtain keys for the One-A-Days the limit is null and void. THIS MEANS LEVELING AREAS ONLY. If you suspect this is an issue or has been broken please use the save log feature in your client and let a staff member know. If you do not provide a log file we will be unable to do anything about this potential rule violation. Please ensure that you are running the logger, and have your time stamps turned on so we can fully check any rule break.
The security of your account, characters and their possessions is YOUR responsibility. If any person other than you knows what your password is then your characters are NOT secure. We strongly discourage sharing your account login information with ANYONE, and can make no guarantees if you do not maintain your own security. Likewise, because of the nature of our banning system you may be affected by the actions of people you share accounts with, or the people you live with who also play the game. 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. If you have a shared IP address and have multiple people playing at a time please email email@example.com with the accounts that will be connected so we are aware of any issues that may come up.
1st offense) Ban for 48 hours.
2nd offense) Week ban plus XP/Gold loss.
3rd offense) Month ban plus heavy XP/Gold loss.
4th offense) Permanent Ban
Using an external program to control your character and its movements, actions, or speech is not allowed.
1st offense) Ban for 48 hours and removal of gold/experience
2nd offense) Ban for a month, total gold removal, and heavy experience loss on your main character.
3rd offense) Permanent ban.
Buying or selling of any in-game item, character, or services for non-game items (cash, items from other games, etc.) is strictly prohibited. If you advertise buying or selling anything for non-game items you will be banned and the items or characters could be confiscated and destroyed. If you do purchase something for non-game items our staff is NOT responsible; after all your not buying anything from us. Regardless if you buy or sell, if you are caught, a heavy or permanent ban will be imposed.
Cheating of any kind will NOT be tolerated, especially by our own staff. If you see any evidence of cheating you should immediately send email of the incident to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
You CAN be banned in game for inappropriate activity on the message boards and the wiki. They 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, then your ONLY option is to send an email to email@example.com. If these matters are taken to the message boards you will not be unbanned. 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 your ban was accidental.
Other general bans issued may include:
1st offense) 24 hour ban
2nd offense) 72 hour ban
3rd offense) 1 week ban
