Rules of the Realm

Be Respectful

Don’t be a jerk. The Dwarves Keep is a community built and enhanced by all questing the realm. Respect each other. Do not harass, defame, or threaten others. Avoid making unwelcome comments (e.g. angry name-calling or outbursts of profanity). Racism, sexism, and other hate speech will not be tolerated. Any content that incites real-world violence will not be tolerated.

No Porn, No Exceptions

There are many other sites for smut. Leave your fellow adventurers alone and go there if you must.

Pornographic images and references to pornographic sites are strictly prohibited in the Dwarves Keep. Not sure what constitutes pornography? Avoid any content containing nudity or sexual references and avoid sharing links to sites that contain this content. When in doubt about the suitability of content, assume it’s in poor taste.

Do Not Spam or Solicit

Seriously, no one wants your stuff. This is not a venue to promote your site, services, enterprises, etc. Advertisements and solicitations of any kind are prohibited. Adventurers are here because they enjoy gaming, not peddling. If you have other motivations, find another realm to pester.

Crimes of High Treason

Want to get banished? These actions will likely result in blocking your current and future content in the realm:

  • Posting, offering, or asking for login information of any kind for any site/service.
  • Posting another person’s private information (job, gender, living situation, location, etc.) or contact information (address, email, phone number, etc.).
  • Posting spam or affiliate links, content that could be offensive, or posts without content.
  • Posting copyright-infringing material.
  • Posting requests for money or currency of any kind.
  • Harassing, defaming, or threatening others on the site. This includes threats of lawsuits or other legal action.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive. Every post is judged on its own merits. You’re at the mercy of the GM of the Realm, naturally.

Don’t Use All Caps

Don’t post in all caps unless you’re yelling. And really, why are you yelling? Tranquil posts, please. Simmer down.

Avoid Linking in Posts if Possible

Everything changes, including
URLUniform Resource Locator
s like links and websites. This could mean that an adventurer looking at your content in the future clicks a link to something different than expected and is exposed to insecure content or lands in the ever-present 404 Plane of the Abyss. Try to post content in full, rather than using links. However, remember not to infringe on copyrighted material. Should a link be required, use a secure link, i.e.
httpsHypertext Transfer Protocol Secure
, not
httpHypertext Transfer Protocol

Quandaries or Woes?
