Rules of conduct

Our Game provides a fun and safe environment for player interaction through various chats (world, private, group, and technical support channels). We encourage player cooperation and competitions within the Game, but crossing the line into abuse is never acceptable. If you see a player violating any of the rules below, please let us know at [email protected].

1. Text chat

The Skylore Text Chat includes the World Chat, Group Chat, Private Messages, and the Technical Support Communication Channel. Note that the account owner is entirely responsible for the content of their messages in the Text Chat, regardless of the actual author of the offending communication.

The following are prohibited in the Text Chat:

  • links to any website on the Internet in any written language;
  • meaningless, repetitive, or non-semantic messages (flooding);
  • obscene or abusive language, words, and consonant with them in any written language, including transliteration;
