The Rules


These are the rules of Dark Mists, which includes the mud, website, and forum. These rules are designed to make Dark Mists a fun experience for the entire community. Disobeying any of these rules is grounds for denial or possibly a ban - we take these rules seriously and so should you. If you do not find a rule that applies to a given situation, we ask that you use common sense. This list contains short versions of the rules. You are responsible for adhering to these rules of fair gameplay and good etiquette towards others in the Dark Mists community. See HELP RULEDETAILS for a full description of these rules. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to seek out the guidance of an immortal (see HELP PRAY).
