Rule 2

Please always respect the fact that
PW Rebellion has no age limit for our
players we hope to create a good family
atmosphere so moderate your language
and show respect for other players

Rule 3

discretion of GMs

Rule 6

Loot stealing is an issue however there is in place a moment in the game when an item dropped is yours to pick up, if you do not pick it up during that time the system makes it available for others to pick up. Do not complain if you do not pick up your own drops.

Rule 7

Abusive /racist comments in world chat/ all
chat will result in an immediate chat ban
for the perpetrator also Gms may take it further at their discretion

Rule 8

PK – Update to Rule 8 of Game rules.

As the server now has a BLUE NAME option, if you do not want to participate in PVP/PK then please go blue name. If you are White name then it means you are open for PK/PVP, GMS will not step in if you are PKd while white named.
PK is allowed every where that it is possible to PK, EXCEPT WHEN GMS SAY OTHER WISE for instance during PUBLIC EVENTS like Celestial Tigers or Archosaur invasion.

Rule 9

Pack farming is NOT ALLOWED, if you are found to have mearly created characters to exploit the free packs system your character will be banned for 1 second to remove it from game and interupt the time. Your character name and IP will be recorded and if you repeatedly offend GMs may take further action. Deletion of packs farmed or deletion of character entirely ( at Hermods discretion).

Rule 10

TW - ALL GUILDS wishing to enter onto the Territory War map MUST apply in the Territory War Applications section of this forum. Your guild should have a MINIMUM of Leader, Director and Marchals (all 4) positions filled by NON ALT CHARACTERS ( MAINS ). You must await GM approval BEFORE you enter on to the map. If you fail to do this then GMs have the freedom to enter the map and destroy players with GM powers.

Rule 11

"Kill Steal" or KS,
Hermods definition of KS
"when you hit a monster / boss and take LESS than 50% of its HP, then someone else hits the same monster / boss and takes the remainder of its HP or a majority (50% or more) thus they get the kill i.e. the Exp Sp and drops. It is impossible therefor to KS a 1 hit monster / boss"
Rule - KS is not allowed UNLESS both parties are WHITE NAME and then wish to either defend themselves or show they are open for the monster to be defended.
Spot stealing - dropping into a spot where someone is already killing 1 hit mobs, this also is not allowed again UNLESS both parties are WHITE NAME and then wish to either defend themselves or show they are open for the monster to be defended.
If you are in the spot 1st then you need not be white name.
If someone is BLUE name farming then they are showing they wish to "be alone" DO NOT try to take thier spot, you will be seen as an agressor by GMs and either moved or banned for a short while. (At GMs discression).

Rule 12

Secret Letters

When you hand in a Secret letter at either DWP or 1K you get 100 Reputation and an invasion will begin in that location. DO NOT SPAM these letters at the NPC just to get the rep. If you are found doing it then ALL Secret letters in your inventory and bank will be DELETED. You may also be banned for a short period at GMs discretion.

Rule 17

Provocation
If you provoke an argument in world chat or public open chat then you are as guilty as anyone who replies in an agressive way or uses foul language in a reply. You may be muted or banned as much as the person you provoke. Think before you speak!!







Please understand that the Rules of Conduct,
can and will be updated and/or altered
periodically. It is your individual responsibility
to check this thread often for updates and
changes to our current Forums policies.

We will start by saying Welcome to our
forums and please start by reading our
Rules of Conduct before making your
first set of posts. Feel free to message
GMTEAM@PERFECTWORLDREBELLION.COM
should you have any further
questions related to conduct on our
Message Boards.

General Rules of Conduct

Please remember at all times when posting
on PW Rebellion forums that we do not
have an age limit so bear in mind under
18s may also be reading these forums

A Note about Respect

We're here to have fun and to share
information with each other. With so
many different personalities gathered
in one place, clashes are bound to happen
now and then. But how one conducts
oneself during these situations makes
all the difference. Don't get us wrong,
opinions are valued on the forums, yours
and everybody else's. But please remember
to respect each other and have discussions
and not arguments. If you find yourself
disagreeing with another member, think
first and then calmly compose your words.
Don't be insulting if you happen to disagree
with someone, just understand that their
views are different from yours. Just really
treat each other how you would like to be
treated.
