  • Code of Conduct (Updated: 9/12/2017)

    As with all things, your use of our services is governed by certain rules. These rules are maintained and enforced exclusively by our administration, and must be adhered to by all players. It is your responsibility to know, understand and abide by this Code of Conduct. The following rules are not meant to be exhaustive, and we reserve the right to determine which conduct is considered to be outside the spirit of our community and to take such disciplinary measures as we see fit up to and including blocked access to our server and termination of your Pandora MU account.
    If you come across a player violating the rules below, you should report them.

    Code of Conduct
    1. Transmitting or communicating any content which, in the sole and exclusive discretion of Pandora MU, is deemed offensive, including language that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, or racially, ethically, or otherwise objectionable;
    2. Purposeful violation of server rules or guidelines.
    3. Blocking another player's way so they cannot move to or from a particular area, or access an in-game resource (such as a non-player character).
    4. Using any unauthorized third-party programs, including mods, hacks, cheats, scripts, bots, trainers and automation programs that interact with the game in any way, for any purpose, including any unauthorized third-party programs that intercept, emulate, or redirect any communication between the game client and server, and any unauthorized third-party programs that collect information about the server by reading areas of memory used by the game client to store information;
    5. Accessing or attempting to access areas of the game, website or server that have not been made available to the public;
    6. Impersonating any person, business or entity, including a member of the Pandora MU administration, or communicating in any way that makes it appear that the communication originates from Pandora MU;
    7. Posting identifying information about yourself or other users to the Website or within the Game;
    8. Harassing, stalking or threatening other users in-game;
    9. Kill stealing, denying another player the pleasure or gain of killing a target that should have been theirs.
    10. Spamming chat, whether for personal or commercial purposes, by disrupting the flow of conversation with repeated postings;
    11. Participating in any action which, in the sole and exclusive judgment of our administration, defrauds any other user of the game, including by scamming or social engineering;
    12. Selecting a player name that is falsely indicative of an association with Pandora MU or its administration, contains personally identifying information, or that is offensive, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable. You may not use a misspelling or an alternative spelling to circumvent this restriction on player name choices.

    Punishments generally follow a basic escalation path:

    First Offense: 12 hours of Game Chat Restriction and/or Character Suspension
    Second Offense: 24 hours of Game Chat Restriction and/or Character Suspension
    Third Offense: Two weeks of Character or Account Suspension
    Fourth Offense: Permanent Account Suspension, up to and including Hardware Suspension

    However, it is possible to skip to a Two Week or Permanent suspension based on the severity of the behavior in the game. Excessive negative behavior can result in a Two Week or Permanent suspension at any time without having a previous offense on record.

    Exempt Scenarios
    We regard the following as common sense only. Not loopholes, and definitely not means to an end for mischievous smart-arses.

    If you're unsure if your actions violate this code of conduct, reconsider them. We reserve the right to restrict offending accounts as much as necessary to keep our game server a fun experience for all players.

    We reserve the right to modify this Code of Conduct and/or to suspend, terminate, modify, or delete any Pandora MU account at any time for any reason or for no reason, with or without notice to you. For purposes of explanation and not limitation, most account suspensions, terminations and/or deletions are the result of violations of this Code of Conduct.
