The Codex of Wisdom
This will be updated as we see fit.
PVP: PVP is only allowed in PVP Arenas and in Felucca. Please keep in mind that this is an enter at your own risk situation. You can be killed and looted by other players in Felucca. Staff will not be responsible for replacing items lost.
Character Names: Character names are subject to censorship as staff sees fit. No duplicate names are allowed, and no explicit or inappropriate names will be tolerated. Also, no strings of letters or numbers, please only use pronouncable names.
Afk Macroing: Afk macroing is absolutely allowed as long as it is not to gain wealth or resources. We will manually check/monitor players as we see necessary. If you are say, leveling a weapon and we pop up on you and think you are not there and you do not respond, this is a direct violation and you will be jailed. Skill macroing afk is acceptable.
Harassment: If we receive a complaint from a player, it will be investigated. We can, if need be, recall anything said in game. Anything said outside of game is outside our control.
Other Inappropriate Behavior: Something needing to be mentioned is the fact that our server is 18+ and we have tolerance for a small amount of cussing does not mean that you can speak inappropriately or say perverse offensive things to people. Please keep in mind that just because you CAN does not mean you SHOULD. If someone is offended by your behavior, we will consider it a harassment violation. Know who you are talking to, not everyone takes things the same way. Please refrain from obnoxious behavior/language in world chat. We don't mind if you occasionally cuss, but again we request restraint and please do not go overboard. If we feel this is an issue, it is something we will take out completely, so please be respectful and appreciate we are granting this liberty.
Accounts: We allow only one account per person. We allow more than this per IP for people who's spouse or family members want to join. Each account on the shard must only be used by its owner. If we find out you are using accounts that aren't yours, you will be banned.
Inactive Accounts: We will delete inactive accounts after a period of inactivity of 3 months unless we are contacted prior, or during, the period of inactivity with a valid reason we deem fit to keep the account. Permanently banned accounts will be deleted immediately.
Housing: There is a housing limit of 2 houses per account. Additional house slots can be purchased in the Legends of Sosaria store. Housing decay is currently around 3 months. Houses blocking off pathways or in obtrusive areas can and WILL be deleted by staff. Please do not block pathways or relevant areas with your houses. There is TONS of free space on the server that you can utilize that does not intrude or block relevant areas. Please be courteous. Do not use the name of your house as an advertisement. Naming your house things like '120 Archery Scroll for sale, PM me' is not acceptable. We have a Marketplace channel on discord for such things, and a global chat. Inappropriately named houses may be deleted at your expense.
Languages: We welcome players from everywhere! That being said, we would appreciate it if in public chat and around the server in general if you could stick to speaking english only. You're welcome to private message with a friend or speak to them privately in a private place such a house or guildhouse in whatever language you wish. However, in a public setting please keep it to english only.
Spreading rumors about staff or staff player characters: All of our staff are welcome to have player accounts. Please keep in mind if, for any reason, you find out the identity of a staffer on their player toon, it is an offense to share that knowledge. We will consider banning you for if you are intentionally spreading our identities around the server. Best to avoid gathering such information. Basically, let us enjoy the game too.
Inappropriate language/behavior directed at staff: This one should be a given, but if you are harassing staff members you will be jailed for this. It is left up to our staff to decide whether someone or not deserves to be jailed. However, banning is only done by Kos or Lilith. If you are repeatedly causing an issue, we will decide whether or not you need to be banned.
Spam rules: We understand that World Chat is a convenient place to advertise things you wish to sell, or call out that there is a champ. Our chat menu remembers 200 messages of history that can be viewed at any time by anyone using it so we ask that you use discretion. If your message is still visible there is no need to send it again. Regarding calling champs, we ask that it is announced only once. If someone else has already done so, there is no need for it to be done again.
Exploiting: This is particularly important since our server is very new. If you find a bug, an error, or something does not seem right to you, REPORT IT. If we find that you are taking advantage of a bug or error, we may temporarily or permanently ban you. The act of duping items on our server is strictly forbidden so if you suspect you have inadvertently duped something report it immediately. Failure to do this will get you banned.
Heavy violations on account: As stated above, Lilith and Kos will decide whether or not we should temporarily or permanently ban you depending on the situation. Ultimately, the decision is up to the two of us as it is our server. If one of the two of us thinks you should be banned, you will be banned. That being said, we are dedicated to running the server fairly.
