Respect Others

Treat your fellow roleplayers with respect, both in and out of character. Be considerate of their boundaries, ideas, and preferences. Avoid any form of harassment, discrimination, or offensive behavior.

Win-Only Mentalities Are Prohibited

In roleplay, it is crucial for players to maintain an open-minded and accepting attitude, being willing to accept and experience losses or setbacks as part of the storytelling process. This mindset is essential for fostering successful roleplay and ensuring a fair and enjoyable experience for all participants.

In the event of a disagreement or conflict, it is important for players to communicate and address the issue in a civil and respectful manner. Disagreements are a natural part of any community, but it is crucial to handle them with maturity and understanding.
