Greetings, fair people of BG! This is just a small announcement regarding two particular server rules that have come up recently in a lot of our correspondence between our players and the DM Team. Please review the following, and please consider reviewing the server rules in full if you've become rusty on them or if you are a newer player. Thank you all for every effort to make BG:TSCC a friendly community!

Be Respectful
Players may play a character, but they are not the character. Remember not to take in-character grievances to personal, out-of-character attacks, nor to use out-of-character motivations and agendas to fuel in-character behavior. Even when your characters are bitter enemies, remember to be respectful towards the players and that the goal of your interactions with them should be to have fun.

If you don't like someone, don't get involved with them. There are enough players in the server to go around that you should not be obligated to RP with someone who you don't like, and RPing under a hostile OOC environment only breeds poor IC and OOC behavior, drama, and frustration especially if staff gets involved.
Metagaming
Any information your character has should be gained from IC sources that are not your alternate characters. Out-of-character information can be helpful to gain context as a player, but by no means should it be used to dictate any aspect of in-character behavior.

Merry gaming!
