- Treat fellow players with respect in all circumstances, including when speaking about PvP players on either side.
- Racism, sexism, homophobia, as well as discrimination based on religion or age are prohibited. Why? See Rule #1.*
- a) Refrain from foul, disrespectful, or derogatory language (etc). Our kinship includes players from many cultures, ages, and beliefs. Recognize that not all of them are adults and/or are comfortable with that type of language.
b) Be considerate of other kinnies’ time and personal objectives. While every kinny is willing to help another kinny in difficulty, constant demands for common tasks (e.g. power-leveling, frequent demands for crafting new equipment) can become a form of harassment.
- The use of items in kinship chests is restricted to leveling craftsmen or for improving the weapons, armour, and statistics of Eagles members. Take what you need and leave the rest for our fellow Eagles. Please do not stockpile crafting materials or sell items from our kinship chests to benefit your character economically.*
- Do not sell goods in kinship chat or offer goods and services in kinship chat for which you will want reimbursement.*
