- Our word is final
This is a privately owned board so please be aware that membership is not a right but a privilege. We strive to maintain a pleasant, impartial and open place to discuss the game.
All forum staff are over the age of 30.
All moderator's and Admin's words are final.
- Admin & Forum Staff
Baiting, trolling, insulting, being confrontational with Forum Staff and arguing with moderators will result in action being taken.
This includes stealth-trolling or clever use of semantics for gainsaying.
- Personal Attacks
Personal Attacks on other members of this forum will not be tolerated.
Please do not thread crap. If you have a problem with the basic content or opinions expressed in a discussion, ignore it.
Thread crapping occurs when a person comes into a thread and posts something contrary to the spirit/intent of the thread, often derailing the discussion or turning it into an argument.
Coming into a thread titled "I love my new Apple Macintosh!", and posting "PCs are better and cheaper" is thread crapping.
This is a private adult forum and everyday forms of good-natured conversational profanity are acceptable within context. Hostile uses are not. Use discretion as you see fit, as there may be minors viewing. Certain words are pre-censored and may appear altered in posts.
- Threats or abuse
Abusive comments that refer to religion, race and lifestyle will be looked upon with Zero Tolerance by forum staff and action may be taken.
- Politics & Religion
No posts about politics or religion.
- Inappropriate Content
Please do not post inappropriate material or public links to torrents, obscene, or illegal materials. Links to video clips and material on public sites like Youtube etc. are acceptable. Complaints against Youtube content must be specifically directed against Youtube.
Posting parts of official game materials is not allowed if the purpose is to publicly share game material with persons that do not possess that particular game content.
Incomplete small portions of game content quoted strictly for the purposes of topical discussion is permitted, including screenshots.
Exclusions to this rule are limited to custom-made blank character sheets, Gadget Cards and the like.
Posts with content that hints at owning pirated materials will be deleted without notice.
- Sock Puppets
Sock Puppets will not be tolerated if used for deception and to cause offence, confusion or trolling. Certain exceptions are made for those profiles which may used by staff for entertainment purposes only or to have an 'off-duty' forum membership.
"A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception within an online community.
A sockpuppet is a false identity through which a member of an Internet community speaks with or about himself or herself, pretending to be a different person."
- Misleading Posts
Posts deliberately made with misleading information with the intention to cause deception or that may harm or cause offence to other members will result in action being taken.
- Full Disclosure

Members who wish to make posts with the intention to sell a personal product or service, promote a personal service or product or acquire personal funding must first seek the permission of the Forum Admin before posting and a decision will be made at the Admin’s discretion.
Third-party spamming for commercial services and products is not permitted. Members will have their posts deleted and they will be banned.
