Public discussion channels
The category of public chats is those created by Bruma Studios that can be read by all the players connected. Game Masters will be especially vigilant and quick to react regarding all activities prohibited in the list above. When a Game Master will be called upon to intervene, they will do so according to the method mentioned below, in order to provide a gaming experience enjoyable for the whole community of players.
Local conversations are the ones shared between players, which are considered as dialogues. They are subject to the same rules as those of the other communication tools given by BRUMA, although the GM can be less strict in the application of forbidden elements according to the more private aspect of the exchanges.
Private conversations are either those exchanged between two players or discussion channels created by the users. The GM will only intervene when the gravity of the comments is considered as requiring an immediate action. At any time, the player can use the '' Ignore List '' option (…) to block on his screen the comments held by another player.
Black Moon Chronicles-Winds of War is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), which implies a struggle between the forces of good and evil. There is no need to contact us when your character is killed by a member of the opposing faction. We advise you to use your vigilance, to travel in groups when you go into hostile territory and to choose the best time to visit an area controlled by an individual or group of individuals.
The team of Bruma Studios makes every effort to provide an atmosphere of fun in the game. To this end, it is sometimes necessary to use sanctions to control certain attitudes that threaten the quality of play of the entire community of players. Sanctions are usually preceded by a warning, although it is sometimes necessary to apply a more immediate punishment ranging from suspension to the closing of the account. When a Game Master intervenes, it does so privately. You lose the ability to communicate on our communication tools until a decision is taken.
The warnings are used by our Game Masters to inform our customers that they violate one or more rules on the charter. Most of the time, it is a transgression that can be avoided through a better understanding of the charter. The GM will inform the player of the rule to promote understanding of the player warned. When a player ignores repeated warnings, the GM will make a temporary suspension of the account.
Account suspension occurs either when a player violates the rules so that he or she disrupts the atmosphere of the game, or when he multiplies warnings. Most of the time, the player has been warned beforehand, if the violation of the charter requires more ability to react from the Game Masters, they can suspend an account without previous warning. The player will be informed that his account is suspended when he or she is in-game or through an e-mail. The duration of an account suspension varies according to the gravity of the infraction and the number of penalties already applied to the account. The player cannot accede to his or her account for a period of three hours, twenty-four hours, or of 48 hours.
Bruma Studios reserves the right to close an account if you break the present contract. Bruma Studios reserves the right to modify this charter at any moment; the changes that are made will be announced in the ''Announcements'' section of the forum as well as on the site.
Bruma Studios cannot be forced to reimburse a customer because of a loss of enjoyment or a technical problem.
Although the staff of Bruma Studios does everything in its power to offer a continual service and a stable product, free of errors or from dangerous constituents, we cannot be considered responsible for a loss of enjoyment.
