New Runes of Magic Game Rules

With the registration of an account on Runes of Magic you accept the terms and conditions for the game as well as the following rules:

§ 1 Name Entry

• Player, Shop and Guild names that contain abusive, racist, extreme right-wing, vulgar and/or sexual wordings as well as other phrases which may come across as rude are forbidden.
• Names with unnecessary or random letter, number and special character combinations may be changed on a case basis by the RoM team.
• Players that enter or use a name belonging to a Runes of Magic team member will have their name changed without warning or in extreme cases, will be banned.

§ 2 Behavior


• The threatening and extorting of other players is forbidden. If you feel that another player is not following the rules, report this using the ticket system. A perceived insult is not always an insult, as they can be interpreted differently by different players. Mentors will only pursue an insult that could be punished as improper behavior. Threats and extortion must be reported with supporting screenshots or similar evidence, in case there is no Mentor available at the time of reporting.
• Asking other players to do something against their will is against the rules and can result in a banned account.

§ 3 Chat in Game


• Runes of Magic is offered in the following localized versions: English / German / French / Spanish / Polish / Italian. This corresponds to the official boards, Game Support and IRC chat rooms.
• The language used in the in-game trade chat, map chat and normal chat should correspond to the common language of the server for better communication between players, but the use of other languages is permitted.
• Any content that contains vulgar or offensive language, regardless of the used language, is not permitted and can lead to a lock out from the game depending on the severity of the offence.
• Use of abbreviations for vulgar language, e.g. leet speak, is not permitted. This also applies to the chat filters.
• Each individual chat is to be used only for its specific function (e.g. trading in war chat is not permitted).
• The Runes of Magic Teams reserve the right to silence, kick or in extreme cases ban players without warning should these rules be broken.[

§ 3a Spam


• Please do not spam the chats. Spamming is defined as the repeated sending of a message in short time frames in trade, normal, war or map chats.
• Publishing links or information that have nothing to do with Runes of Magic as well as other games is not permitted.
• It is not permitted to ask about cheats or to ask other players to name such programs or to post advertisement for these cheats.

§ 3b Real Life Threats

Users who threaten to find out information (addresses etc.) and then cause harm to Gameforge employees or any other person is strictly prohibited. Threats of this type will result in a system-wide ban including a house (website)-ban.

§ 3c Letter System Rules


The in-game mail system should not be misused by the following actions:
- Defamation, racism, drug related themes, extremist paroles and themes, pornographies
- Spam with no meaning
- The team reserves the right to ban players temporarily or permanently depending on the breach

§ 3d Chat/Trade Macros


With immediate effect, if needed, macro users can be kicked or banned for a period of time.
Trade macros are allowed provided they do not spam the chat. Macros with other content are not permitted and will be deleted in order to minimize macro spamming.
Trade macros are only permitted in the trade chat provided for such activity.

Rule breaking can be punished with a chat mute or a lock out from the game for a certain period of time. The severity of these punishments will be calculated by the game team.

§ 4 Bugs


Should you find a bug, use it and then profit by doing so, you risk facing a lock out from the game for a period of time. Bugs should be reported on the forum, to a Mentor or to support.

§ 5 Cheating


● manipulating the client is forbidden.
● the use of illegal software that has been created for Runes of Magic but has not been released or endorsed by Gameforge4D is not permitted and results in a ban. Players are not permitted to decrypt, hack or manipulate data coming from or going to the Runes of Magic servers.
● the usage of third party programs or macros for the purpose of altering or automatizing the game flow are prohibited and will lead to a ban.

§ 5a Banning of Main and Secondary Accounts


Users whose account(s) are blocked as a result of cheating or hacks will face a ban across ALL of their accounts (main and secondary’s) on all Runes of Magic UK servers.

§ 5b Third Party Programs


The use of third-party programs completely forbidden. If someone is caught using such programs and is banned for this reason, their account will remain banned indefinitely!

§ 6 Account Data


The user is obliged to keep log-in data and all identification and passwords strictly confidential. The user may enter log-in data only on Gameforge operated Internet pages.

• The Runes of Magic team will you never ask you for account information or password of your account.
• The questions from players to their account data are not permitted.
• Any concerns regarding any of the account to any other type of consideration is not permitted.
• The user is obliged to protect all log-in data, identifications and passwords from unauthorized access of third parties.
• The user is under no circumstances entitled to use the log-in data of another user, unless the rules of the game provide specific exceptions.

§ 6a Sale of accounts/items with real money


It is strictly forbidden and against the T&Cs to sell, procures or offer accounts or items.

We have previously warned that those that initiate and receive such trades will be banned. Unfortunately we need to be more stern with the matter, and effective immediately the procurement and purchasing of such things will be punished (with a Permaban). With that, we include not only Runes of Magic Accounts but also the trade of accounts that have nothing to do with RoM.

You may:
Exchange item for item free of charge.
Exchange item for GOLD (the 'normal' trade).
The equal trade of game items is allowed.


You may not:
Exchange accounts for real money / PSC (PaysafeCards )
Exchange accounts for Dias (which is effectively real money).
Exchange accounts for GOLD.
Exchange accounts for items.
Exchange items for real money.
Exchange items for Dias (such as "I offer you my Equip for 1000 Dias" or similar).

§ 6b Account Exchanging, Gifting and Sharing


Effective immediately, the passing on of account data is not permitted. When this comes to a misuse or exchange of an account where a problem occurs, then all those involved will face a ban.

§ 7 Events


• During an event the instructions of a Mentor / Supporter or GA are to be followed. Should these instructions not be followed, there is a chance you will be removed from the event.
• Every player should keep the area around the jump gate/warp portal clear so that other players may enter the map/event.
• It is not permitted to harass Mentors/ Supporter / GAs during an event. They will have their hands full at that point in time, with the administration and management of the event. Please send your questions afterwards via PMs in the forum, IRC or via email.
• After the event it is not permitted to solicit for prizes. Users have no entitlement to a prize.

§ 8 Mentor / Supporter Help


• Mentors / Supporter are not allowed to hand out any items, Dias or other such things without a Go. They will not maintain anything for you, nor help with leveling or spawn any monsters. Exceptions: in instances of bugs or an event.
• Mentors / Supporter will not trade with you nor open a trading window
• You should not ask Mentors / Supporter about such requests. Constant requests for items, Dias, gold, formations and friends will result in a mute and/or a possible kick from the server.

§ 9 Mentor / Supporter Team


The instructions and decisions of the Runes of Magic team are to be obeyed.

If a player attempts to circumvent a decision already made by a Mentor / Supporter, for example, by going to another Mentor with the same problem, they will face a lock out from the game (exception being issues that involve Mentors / Supporter and their actions - which should always be reported to the GA / BA or support).

The Mentor / Supporter Team is there to help you and to make the game as enjoyable as possible.
Offences against the rules will be primarily handled by the Mentors / Supporter. Mentors / Supporter are authorized to temporarily kick as well as take other necessary measures, for example the notification of infringements against these rules, so that players and their accounts are banned or to do said actions themselves.

§ 9a Mentor / Supporter PMs


Players assume all responsibility for reacting to private in-game messages from the Mentor / Supporter team.
If no answer should appear within a fairly long period of time, yet the player continues to operate within the game, the Mentor / Supporter team will then assume that the player is not using the approved software to reproduce the gameplay in its automated form.

§ 10 Combo Ban Rules


A combo ban rule is affected when a significant rule is broken in the forum. This then applies to the game account in-game.

Rule infringements which will in future lead to in-game punishment are as follows:

- Multi-accounts in the forum
- Offensive posts/links
- Serious/severe insults or attacks
- Bating of members, team members or GF
- Racist comments
- Pornographic content

The duration of the punishment will vary according to the severity of the infringement.

§ 11 Measures


According to the severity of the offence, the following measures will be taken:

- Friendly warning to observe the rules
- Warning
- Muting of player
- Locking of the account

Punishment for misconduct towards the Runes of Magic team (insults, name-calling or assumption of authority) will always be an lengthy lock out of your account.

We reserve the right to adjust this rules (where applicable) at any time.
Further rules of behavior can be found in the T&Cs. These rules do not replace the T&Cs, rather they expand on them.

The new rules are effective from 01.09.2013. Warnings and bans based on the old rules won't be removed or modified due to this change."

The Runes of Magic team reserves the right to turn off access to the online game service and/or other services associated with it for a limited or lengthy period of time in instances of infringement of the above-mentioned behavior and game rules.

The Runes of Magic team will decide whether an action is an infringement of the behavior and game rules.

You can read up about more rules of conduct in the T&Cs. The basic principles do not replace the T&Cs, but supplement them in the framework set by them.
