Follow these rules when playing on the server, they are set to help you enjoy the server to its max.

NO Item Scamming

NO Luring in to the wilderness

NO Fcing (This is okay during PVP):

Fcing, or Fring stands for Far casting/ Far ranging and is when a player uses magic or range to attack a NPC without the NPC being able to retaliate. This is a very serious offence and will often lead to a permanent ban.

NO Flaming: Flaming is a serious offence and can lead to a mute. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all

NO prejudice comments or sexual harrasment

NO Kill stealing

NO Racism

NO Macros (Ex. Auto Buyer, Auto Typer, Auto Clicker.)

NO Starter Giving (Making a new acc and giving the starter items to another acc): Disobeying this rule can lead to an account wipe of all items for one or all accounts using the offenders IP address.

ABSOLUTELY NO DUPING: Any duping or attempt at duping will lead to a Instant IP Ban in game as well as on forums and a wipe of all items from that users IP address, Staff will then investigate every player on the offenders trade logs.

No PJing (Player jumping): To keep this from becoming a problem, please wait 5-7 seconds after a player has FINISHED a PVP fight before attacking.

Bug Abuse
Exploiting any sort of bug for whatever reason is not tolerated and will be dealt with in a harsh manner. If you have discovered a bug within the game or forum please post a bug report HERE.

Bug abuse If you find some way to exploit some part of the game for your own personal gain, and it's pretty obvious that the game is not supposed to function that way you've found a bug/glitch. If you decide it's a good idea to exploit said glitch then you are more than likely going to be banned for it, even if you are not the cause of said glitch and are merely taking part you are still going to get banned for exploiting a bug and gaining an unfair advantage over other players. Common bugs that people seem to abuse regardless of them obviously being bugs: 'Luring' npcs and catching them in scenery so they don't move/fight back. (Yes, 'luring' the Godwars Dungeon monsters is abusing a bug in the combat/npc/clipping system.) Disclaimer: The staff reserves the right to take whatever action is deemed appropriate in any given situation, regardless of whether there is a specific rule covering that situation or not.

Forum Rules
Please respect all rules. The rules are here to keep the forum a nice, safe and happy place to be.

1.1. Offensive/Inappropriate Language: Any use of offensive or inappropriate language is inexcusable and not tolerated. You are old enough to settle things accordingly and handle things with care. You are not allowed to use any sort of offensive language towards another person, anywhere.
1.2. Swearing: Swearing is allowed to a certain extent. You are allowed to swear as long as it is not directed at anyone but yourself.
1.3. Censor Evasion: Evading the censor will not be tolerated for any reason. You are not allowed to censor evade to swear even. Example: ?F**k you, or S**t?.
1.4. Flaming: The use of slanderous, defamatory, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, violent, abusive, insulting, threatening and harassing comments towards other users are not tolerated.

2. Spamming
It is simple; do not make any unnecessary posts, topics, and replies. Creating topics ANYWHERE, excluding the Spam Section, with a single word, with an emoticon, or a strand of random numbers is completely against the rules. Creating replies with single words or a smiley face is only tolerated in sections where your post count does not increase. Gravedigging is also considered spamming. Gravedigging is when you reply to an old topic which has not had any replies in while. Check the dates before replying.

This does include referral links. You are not allowed to place any sort of referral link ANYWHERE.
