Comments and banter between players must still comply with previously rules regarding statements in game. "Baiting" insulting statements may also be considered harassment. Players can use the in-game ignore features to ignore comments in game and are encouraged to at least attempt to settle disputes respectfully in game. Video/Screenshot evidence may be considered if harrassment is considered to be excessive an beyond private messaging.
What is deemed "Power Abuse" may be at the gamemasters discretion. Collective examples may need to be examined to determine what constitutes power abuse and if the examples provided can be shown to be excessive without reasonable justification and/or be considered intentional greifing.
Violating or attempting to violate the Rules may lead to a temporary suspension of characters and accounts. In severe cases the removal or modification of character skills, attributes and belongings, as well as the permanent removal of characters and accounts without any compensation may be considered. The sanction is based on the seriousness of the rule violation and the previous record of the player. It is determined at the sole discretion of Nostalther and can be imposed without any previous warning.
These rules may be changed at any time. All changes will be announced on the official website.
