The Three Rules of Underlight
The Three Rules of Underlight
The First Rule
"Be Honest with the Software"
Cheating or hacking of any kind is prohibited. Because the client software is a terminal to our servers, using an altered version of the client software is an attempt to hack our servers. This is a federal offense, and we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. The use of any program that alters data transferred between our server and the client will also be considered an attempt to gain unauthorized access to our servers and will also be prosecuted. Using any game mechanics to gain a technical advantage is considered cheating and is subject to disciplinary action.
The Second Rule
a) Keep your behavior appropriate at all times. If your language or behavior repeatedly annoys or offends others, you will be banned from playing. We place no limits on the use of language. Consenting adults are free to engage in any language or behavior they mutually agree to, however, much of the player-base are young role-players, and should not be subject to some adult language. Inappropriate behavior includes attacking other players without a valid in game reason, using unnecessarily offensive language, annoying others with out of character chat, excessive begging, etc.
b) Distasteful language whether it in-character to in-character, out-of-character to out-of-character, out-of-character to in-character, or in-character to out-of-character will not be tolerated on official KoiWare servers or channels. The game staff retains the right to determine what behavior is deemed inappropriate and will go through a thorough and specific procedure to implement penalties. Penalties may include a verbal warning, temporary suspension, or in severe cases, termination/banning.
The Third Rule
"Stay in Character"
Underlight is a true Roleplaying game. Upon entering the realm of the City, you have to always remember you are pretending to be your character and leave the outside life of the real world behind. Your character would have no way of knowing sports scores or the latest in music or fashion. So, to protect the environment that all role players are striving for, leave the real world chat outside please. If you must communicate of real world things, please do so in whispers and put the information in double quotes. For example: John Doe whispers: ((hey how do I bind a key to my art?)). This way you can be sure to not offend anyone and protect the active role playing that is going on around your character.
These rules are a very simple guideline to your behavior when playing Underlight. Use your best judgement and behave as if you were in a room full of random people of all ages. The game staff retains the right to determine what behavior is deemed inappropriate and will go through a thorough and specific procedure to implement penalties. Penalties may include a verbal warning, temporary suspension, or in severe cases, termination/banning.
