Game rules

Each player agrees to the Terms and Conditions and the ingame rules of Tanoth with his registration. Every violation of the rules can cause a temporary ban or an exclusion from the game. Depending on the rule violation, an exclusion from the game can be extended by a game administrator to all offers connected to Tanoth. The team is obligated to handle all cases of rule violation in all conscience.

I. Account:
Every player is allowed to control one account per server. The account will be assigned to the holder of the entered email address.

II. Account sharing:
Each account is entitled to be played by a single player at a time, account sitting being the only exception.

III. Account sitting:
A Game Operator of the respective server must be informed at least one day before the sitting takes place. The sitting has to conform to the following requirements:

1) An account may only be sat for a maximum period of 14 continuous days. (Game Operators permission needs to be obtained in cases where a time extension is needed)
2) Only one account per person and server can be sitted at the same time. Sitter and sitted account can play on the same server.
3) A sitter may not sit an account that was sat within the previous 7 days . Exceptions can be made by the judgement of the responsible Game Operator.
4) A sitter is not allowed to change/delete any player related data like profile for example.
5) Changes in a guild via a sitted account or a resignation from a guild is not permitted.
6) Using the merchant is permitted. In case of a mistaken investment or loss of items during a sitting, the owner of the account has no claim for refund.

IV. Multiusing:
According to the rules a player will be excluded from the game if he controls more then one single account per server. Multi-accounts will be banned without warning. If two or more accounts are usually, occasionally, or permanently being played from the same network, (university networks, schools,...) a Game Operator must be notified, without exception.

V. Bugusing
Exploitation and utilization of bugs and/or programming errors is prohibited. If a user detects a bug, he is obliged to inform the responsible Game Operator immediately. The exploitation of a bug may cause an immediate ban by the Game team. Bugusing in terms of error replication may just happen with admission of a Game Operator.

VI. Scripting
Using a program as interface between the player and his game is prohibited. Any other form of automatically generated information generated for a group of players advantage with malicious intentions is forbidden as well. Tools can be tolerated by the administration.

VII. Real Life Threats
To express the intention to harm a person (user, team member or representatives of Gameforge) is strictly forbidden within the game, the board and all official IRC channels.

VIII. Content
Content in profiles, names, news, guild names, guild profiles or messages, which violates the human dignity of a person, or violates a law, and the call to violate human dignity or laws, can be censored respectively users will be locked or deleted.
It is not allowed to use names of team members, to simulate being part of the team, or to threat an other user with sanctions of the team.

IX. Language:
English is the official language on all servers of Tanoth.xx . Using other languages in profiles or other parts of the game, will be censored and may cause a permanent ban or a deletion.

X. Forwarding of confidential messages:
To forward personal messages (IRC/PM/..) and mails to a third person without the agreement of the author is not permitted. To forward messages to a member of the gameteam is excluded. A violation of this rule can lead to a ban from the game or board.

XI. Abuse of the rules and their additions:
Any form, way and any attempt to get personal profit unfairly by abusing ingame rules or the decisions of a team member is forbidden.

XII. Terms and Conditions:
The terms and conditions will be supplemented by these rules and must be observed.

XIII. Final Clause:
Remaining parts of the document will be unaffected in their content and validity, if sections or individual formulations of this text are not correct, invalid or incomplete.

Especially pay attention to:

- Screenshots won't be accepted as an evidence to proof or disproof a rule violation.

- The responsible Gameoperator of the respective server should be messaged via e-mail or a secured ticket-system only, with the entered email address, to make sure that the data of the account owner will be handled confidential.

- Sanctions of an Operator towards a user, won't be lifted by an other Operator without consulting the responsible GO.

- Avoiding a decision of a Game Operator by contacting another member the team, may lead to a ban. Complaints are excluded.
