General Ingame Rules Conduct As a felucca server without trammel most everything goes in the game world with some specific examples. Racial, Homophobic and other derogatory slurs are discouraged in the game world. Note: Occasional outbursts will result in a warning, while patterns of behavior can warrant more specific punishment. Discouraging Gameplay Just because this is a felucca world does not give players the permission to harass and discourage other players in ways that exceed the boundaries of common sense. If your conduct is judged to be primarily focused on activities that will result in players no longer enjoying playing on Renaissance this conduct will be addressed. Examples of understood felucca game play: Killing a player in a dungeon, looting their items Stealing from players Looting other players houses. Examples of discouraging game play: Telling them to get good or gtfo off the server Excessive verbal harassment Trapping players in locations that force them to use the help stuck system to escape Using ghost scouts to track players locations in dungeons and at champion spawns Excessive attempts to scam other players. Spreading false narratives regarding the development and direction of the server. (aka fear mongering) Note: When in doubt, if you think a certain behavior is discouraging to other players, then do not do it. It is not our job to provide an environment where players can prey on other players outside the expected world mechanics. If the staff notices a pattern of behavior that indicate to us that a player does not appreciate their access to the Renaissance server and exist here only to torture others for their own amusement you will be removed from the community.
