Rules

Introduction

Players breaking any of the rules or assisting other players in breaking the rules may be temporarily or permanently banned from Datblock. Please report rule breakers and world map grief to staff by making a ticket at Discord.

If you are unsure whether you are going against the spirit of the game, please contact a staff member to avoid potential punishment.
