The golden rule of Thain is respect. Respect your fellow players, the module, the setting, the staff, and the fun everyone is having!
The 'Rules' FAQ simply provides examples of situations that are very likely to be interpreted as varying degrees of disrespect, but each DM has authority to judge as they see fit--this FAQ is here as a guideline to help players understand how the DMs currently interpret the one golden rule of "Respect," but the DMs always have final say.
If you have an issue with a DM, please send them a Private Message (PM) to work it out; do not argue in-game. If that fails to resolve your issue you may send a PM to Falkala to act as an intermediary with you and the staff. There should be very few cases that get this far as most things are just a simple misunderstanding and can be resolved through communication.
In this FAQ you will find in depth information about our rules, as well as information on characters.
