|Currently all the rules are still
in the process of being perfected for the chatting area‘s. All rules currently apply for all rooms for the Ophidian Realm. Shortly I will be advancing the rules for certain rooms, but until then these are the rules for every room. Obey the rules or suffer the consequences. All rules are subject to change.
Rule #1 : Age RequirementYou must be 18 years or older to join this chat. This site will not be held responsible for underage chatters. Anyone underage found in the chat that doesn't have the expressed permission of the ruler will be banned immediately.
Rule #2 : BehaviorCursing is not forbidden, but is also not welcome. So please, keep it to a minimum and be respectful. Use of an offensive Handle is not allowed. Discussing obscene topics or harassing others in a public room is prohibited. Abuse of HTML or any malicious hacking that makes it difficult to read the screen, is prohibited. If you are being rude to other chatters, you may find yourself kicked out of the room or banned from the site completely. We have the ability to ban entire networks or service providers, don't spoil it for yourself or others.
Rule #3 : HarrassmentHarassment will not be tolerated. Respect must be given to each person in the chat, regardless of rank or title, includes impersonation of other users will not be tolerated.
Rule #4 : FightingThis is a system of free forum fighting. Each room has rules to it as to whether or not battles can be held in it.
Rule #5 : MarriageBefore consideration of marriage, courtship must take place for 2 months RT, must be taken to the High Priestess, and then to complete a quest to prove the willingness of bonding.
Rule #6 : PregnancyPregnancy can only be considered after 2 RT months of approved marriage. Even then, it too must be taken in front of the High Priestess and Council. Once approved, the pregnancy will last 4 RT months. When it is time, the Oracle will over see the pregnancy. Sorry it takes so long but we don't want a pregnant one day and then baby the next.
Rule #7 : Images

All pornographic pictures are PROHIBITED. Posting adult or pornographic pictures in a public room is strictly prohibited.
Rule #8 : Soliciting Advertisement of products, pornographic material or any unauthorized sites is prohibited.
Rule #9 : OtherThis is mostly a fantasy RP area, werewolves, vampire, elves, pixies, etc. And mostly medieval, but the Ophids is not with out technology, there are guns bombs, etc, but they are almost never seen or used, but will be allowed in moderation. So you can have a gun, but please don't pull up to a castle in a star destroyer... Thank you. Enjoy yourself here, but respect the rights of others.
