Reign Of Blood Terms Of ServiceThe Reign Of Blood Terms of Service, as outlined on this page, is subject to change at any time. You must agree to these terms before being able to login and play the game. These terms were last updated in May 2018.
If you are found to have violated these Terms Of Service, or any of its addendums, Reign Of Blood staff may temporarily ban you from accessing parts of the game. Your account may also be completely banned, or "jailed", for an amount of time deemed necessary. Subsequent violations of the Terms of Service will carry increased penalties and restrictions.
1. YOUR REIGN OF BLOOD ACCOUNT
By creating an account, you agree that you are 16 years of age or older. We will remove highly offensive or illegal content, but some content may not be appropriate for minors (under 16 years of age). Stating you are 16 or over when you are not in-game (or vice versa) will result in immediate permajailing.
1.2 Multiple Accounts (Multis)
You are only permitted one Reign Of Blood account. If you are found with more than one account, all accounts will be jailed.
1.3 Illegal Transfers
Illegal Transfers (ITs) are transactions in which virtual currencies are traded between accounts on the same IP or network, accounts that are on Permissions, to or from a Multi, or any of these done via a third party. Any illegally gained funds/equipment will be removed from the game, and further actions, such as stat loss may occur, as deemed necessary. ITs do not include currencies bought directly from the game store (e.g. Plasma, Potion Credits, RED). You may purchase packs from the game store for any other account, even those sharing your network. For requesting Permissions to share a network or to report use of public networks, see the ADMIN-Rules forum.
1.4 Account Sharing & Transfers
Accounts may only be used and accessed by the user who originally signed up for the account. Violation may result in jailing. Accounts found to have been transferred or sold to another person will be permanently jailed. Do not give your login credentials and passwords to anyone.
1.5 Disruption and Trolling
Any player who engages in acts to disrupt an area of the game (such as profiles, chats, forums, etc) or to deliberately reduce other players' enjoyment of the game (including harassment, bullying, slander, or abuse) can be banned or jailed for an indeterminate time and may be deleted without warning. This includes discouraging anyone from financially supporting the game or threatening the physical safety of players or Staff.
1.6 Encouraging Cheating
Encouraging or willfully assisting another player to break any of these Terms will be considered and treated as if you broke the rule(s) yourself.
1.7 Your Link
You are not permitted to spam your link on any website. If the owner of a website complains of spam via your link, you will be jailed. You are not permitted to use proxies to gain link clicks; note that every link click is logged. You are also not permitted to advertise or post your link in game around Reign Of Blood. Violation may result in jailing and removal of referral rewards.
Users have the right to report players who they think could be violating these Terms. Users found deliberately making false accusations of cheating by another player will be jailed from the game. Altering "evidence" against a player, such as editing chat logs, will be considered as making a deliberate false accusation.
2.1 Bug Abuse
Any users found to abuse a bug or glitch within the site will be jailed and advantages gained from the bug removed. If you come across a bug, please report it on the Bug Forum or by help ticket.

Any illegally gained advantages will be removed from the accounts involved, and further actions, such as stat loss may occur if deemed necessary.
2.3 Suspicious Activity
At the discretion of executive staff, you account may be jailed if you are suspected of violating any of these Terms or for engaging in unfair game play. If a final investigation determines your innocence, you will be reimbursed any loss of VIP. Any time served will count against a final sentence.

Joining a House (a group of players banded together for social or roleplay interaction) is also not required. Please be advised that internal interactions within Covens and Houses are only moderated for safety of minors and may include mature content.
A Coven and all the items and currencies within belong solely to the Coven Owner. Players may be given special privileges to help manage the coven. Abuse of these privileges, including stealing Coven resources without Owner permission, is prohibited and all involved may be jailed without warning. Transacting with the coven is the same as transacting with the Owner. Use of the Coven as a third party to commit Illegal Transfers is prohibited.

All accounts are free and the game is free to play. However there is an optional VIP upgrade, which gives you some in-game extras. Most packs are one-time payments only; there are 'recurring subscriptions', and they are clearly marked. Packs are not refundable, but it is possible for you to buy packs for another account. VIP packs cannot be transferred or removed once added to an account.
Purchasing any of the packs from our in-game store does not put you into any agreement with us. Please see our in-game payment terms.
Refunds are not offered on any Reign Of Blood packs. If a pack was purchased in error, we can give you in-game credit (RED) to purchase something else. Please see our in-game payment terms..
Users agree if any payment transaction tied to their account is charged back or refunded (e.g. due to using a stolen credit card), your account will be jailed until the full amount of money is returned.
We are grateful to who players who help support the game financially. However, buying any of our packs does not make you immune to these Terms of Service.
Reign Of Blood does not guarantee connectivity, though we do our best to keep the servers online 24/7.
