PlayerAgreement / PlayerAgreement

Overview

Trans Sidera is designed to be a “strict” Role Play environment. As such, being properly In Character while in In Character areas of the server is enforced. This is to ensure that not only others, but yourself as well, have an environment that is conducive to Role Play. Trans Sidera’s Role Play standards are a part of the user agreement, and thus those standards that must be adhered to. New Players should not be intimidated by this, Admins and Players alike will work with you and cut you plenty of slack as you learn the ropes.

This is a Player Agreement. By Role Playing on this server or accessing it in any way, you agree to abide by this agreement. This agreement may change from time to time, with or without notice. By continuing to Role Play on this server, you agree to any changes made. If you do not agree to abide by this agreement and any changes made, then you must stop accessing the server. Attempts will be made to announce when changes have been made, but it is ultimately up to the Player to review this agreement on a regular basis.

Trans Sidera's content depends largely on the Players. It may contain mature themes, violent or sexual content, and other content which may be inappropriate for minors. As such, no Player under the age of 18 is permitted on Trans Sidera. This also ensures that all Players may Role Play their characters in a manner consistent with their character without the need to alter their characters to keep them appropriate for younger audiences. By accessing Trans Sidera servers, you verify that you are over the age of 18.
