Section 1: Have Fun
When joining The First Age you agree to one thing – to have fun. We play games for fun, and a kinship is nothing but an extension of this. The First Age is basically a bunch of guys who enjoy getting together for a pub game or raid’s.
So before we get into any of the other stuff – remember to have fun, and also remember – ITS JUST A GAME.

Section 2: Behavior
Having read the above, behavior of The First Age members is a natural extension of this.
Swearing / Abuse –
We know it happens and let’s face it – everybody does it. While it’s acceptable to let a bit of language go in Ventrilo while having a game (while either having a joke with other members or the natural frustration that everyone suffers at some point), we expect all members to behave in a civil manner in when it comes to other Kinship’s and individuals they play against – that means keeping public chat clean of any abuse / language. While on this subject, any excessive attacks by any member of The First Age against either another member or an outside player will not be tolerated. Members who go about abusing other members of the gaming community reflect badly on the Kinship as a whole and can ruin the online gaming experience for everyone. Any member who is found to be abusing other players (members or not) will be dealt with severely.
Rank & Identification –
The First Age uses a ranking structure so that the Kinship can have a working chain of command. The ranking structure also allows new recruits to identify key members in regards to Moderator’s. Low ranking members are to be respectful of those with higher rank, as higher ranking members are The First Age veterans and have earned their rank with hard work and commitment to the kinship. The First Age members will rarely give orders, but when they are issued, members are to follow the orders of their Modertor to the best of their ability. If you feel that there are issues that need to be raised with the higher ranking members (Mainly the Moderator’s), then send a personal message to an High Officer/Officer who will raise the issue with Moderator. All issues raised with be handled confidetialy and will be investigated and treated seriously.
Comms (Ventrilo) Usage –
The First Age supplies a Ventrilo Comms server for free use by its members – the server is a privilege and should not be abused and / or taken for granted.
When using the comms server members:
• will conduct themselves in a manner that reflects well on the kinship as a whole.
• will not “spam” the Vent channels unless they’re in the Open or another appropriate room. The game channels are not for random noises or unrelated conversation – they’re for use by members playing the designated game.
We provide this server so that members can have fun gaming together, not annoy the hell out of a group of guys trying to have a game. If you are asked to leave a channel because you are not playing, either join in the game or respect their request. In summary – know when to shut-up.
Ventrilo and Forum Access –
Ventrilo access passwords are for The First Age MEMBERS ONLY, unless specified by Moderator. Any members giving out passwords to private channels will be dealt with harshly. Forum access is granted only to new recruits once they are accepted into the kinship. The code of conduct applies to the forums in the same way it does to in game and comms server behavior – respect the other members of The First Age.

Section 3: Cheating & Bot’s
Cheating is not tolerated in The First Age. End of story. ANY use of cheats or BOT’S, unfair exploits or hacks by The First Age members is punishable by removal from the Kinship after a review of the facts by Moderator’s. The First Age members take a zero tolerance position towards cheaters and hackers. If a member of The First Age suspects another member of cheating, they are to refer their suspicions (with any relevant proof), they report to a Moderator. They should NOT confront the cheater in any way. The issue will be dealt with seriously. By Higher Authority!

Section 4: General Overview
• EVERYONE GETS A SHOT IN RAID – regardless of skill level. We’re here to have fun.
• There is no “rating” or open “judging” of members skill levels. e.g. members of The First Age are not to openly rank their division members based on skill. A member’s level of skill is placed second to their personality.
• The First Age members will not discriminate against other members based on gender, race, religious beliefs, nationality and so on. Discrimination within The First Age is not accepted and will be seriously dealt with by Moderator.

Yeah i agree. It looks pretty good right now but things might come up later that will have to be addressed. I say at those times we will need to revise our code but right now it looks awsome. Good job Spanky Smile

I agree that if anything comes up that's not covered here it can always be discussed and then added in to the curent CoC. Great job BTW Spanky. Well thought out and it covers pretty much everything that comes up. Like you said it's just a game and it's meant to be fun. A little common sense can go a long way. Smile
