Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct here describes what we would expect from members and staff alike when it comes to community interaction. That is, any interaction you have with other members on the site, be it the forums, chat box, your public den page, any shop or trade description, or private messages.

We require that all players read and understand this Code of Conduct, and by continuing to use Lioden you are agreeing to abide by these rules and guidelines. Additionally, please make sure to read our Terms of Service. Please be aware that breaking any of these rules, even if you are unaware of them, may result in your account losing privileges with regards to the chat box, forums, or even your entire account - so please make sure you are fully aware of what is and isn't allowed.

Profanity

We are a 16+ site so we do allow profanity, however it must not be used in a harmful way towards other members or groups of people. Discriminatory words, including racist and sexist remarks, are prohibited even if presented in a joking manner.

Religion & Politics

We do not allow topics or discussions to be created with the sole purpose of discussing religion or politics. Lioden is a game, and games are supposed to be an escape from the real world. We understand that religion and politics can come up in regular discussions and we will monitor those independently, but any topic or chat posts created to discuss either of these topics will be removed without warning.

Do not scam players.

  • While we do not moderate private transactions between players, we do not allow scamming. We strongly encourage any player who feels they have been scammed to report the user's behaviour to us as soon as possible. In some situations we may be able to return lost currency, items or lions to you. If you leave it too long, the user may have passed any assets you have lost on to another member or into the game system and they will be irretrievable.

Do not post content or link to content with leaked game information.

Please read our full Terms of Service for additional information on what we disallow in user-submitted content.

By continuing to play, you agree that Lioden may take whatever steps it must to support a positive environment at its sole discretion and without prior notice.
