Recommended Posts

The following rules are the Imperial Gaming Forums rules, they are being updated as of the 9th of September, 2021 to fit closer to our current playerbase style, as well as to iron out any misconceptions people may have about the rules on the forums and/or to just generally update them to keep housekeeping in check.

A friendly reminder that any attempt to circumvent these rules, and/or exploit gray areas will be met with punishments that the forums team sees fit.
