First and foremost, welcome to the Fame War discussion boards! We're providing these boards as a way for you, as the players of Fame War, to communicate with each other as well as the team during your stay on our services. It's a way for you to give friendly advice, gameplay tips and tricks, friendly battle/dungeon advice, and general overall communication with each other. These services are a privilege and not a guarantee, so please do not treat them in any sort of an abusive manner or with any ill or malicious intent. We ask you to hold yourself in a gracious manner while using these forums, and conduct yourselves with a civilized and non-disruptive manner, and that is truly all we ask.

The guidelines and rules listed below are specifically explain what behavior is explicitly asked of you here, and also what you can expect from the members around you. They may not address all offensive behaviors, and as such, we expect you to understand that human's should have their own personal code of conduct that they hold themselves to, and hope you have a good moral compass. Also, suspension or banishment from the game will not always result in the same punishment on the forums, although in some severe cases, it will. Krona reserves the right to suspend your account at virtually any time, with or without reason; regardless of the time you've spent with us or the contribution you've put towards our future.

Please note that we reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case to case basis and the action we take may be more lenient or more severe depending on our personal judgement over the case. As a final note, everyone is expected to have a good time and enjoy every service we provide, the discussion boards are not an exception to this case!
