GENERAL SERVER RULES updated 1/18/2017 on staying in character while in the game world under "Roleplay". New section quoted in bold below:
– Roleplay
– This is a Role-play Server set in the Forgotten Realms campaign world. Please respect the setting and stay in-character (IC). You can go out-of-character (OOC) if there is need for clarifications, or if you wouldn't be disturbing role-play around you by doing so (please mark your OOC speech by placing either (( , // or ooc: before or behind it). Do not talk OOC in Party Chat mode, unless a DM has approved such. Party Chat is a tool reserved for DM Events, not to be used to communicate "secretly" between groups, where in-character your PC would otherwise have to talk out loud, or could not communicate over distances.

Unless there is a mechanical OOC distraction such as a server crash, a bug, mistakenly spawning into the wrong location in game, being otherwise AFK, or another OOC rules exception, your character is to always be considered IC while in the game world outside of the Nexus unless a DM says otherwise.

Added this bit back under the PG-13 section, as it was mistakenly left out during the revision.
Pregnancies are strictly forbidden unless directly supervised by the DM team and approved in advance. Any pregnancies are a form of "retiring" a PC for the duration, and resulting children are NOT to be roleplayed or represented in game.

The minimum age for any PC is 18 years old or racial equivalent.

Added this rule despite thinking we'd never have to:
Real Money Trading
Real Money Trading of any kind using BGTSCC as a platform is expressly forbidden. This includes (but is not limited to) the transfer of accounts, characters, items, currency, or in-game services for real life money as opposed to game currency. This also includes offering to pay developers or DMs directly for items, events, or work on the module. Any players found to have participated in this activity will have any items or accounts removed as a result, and likely will have their character vault wiped clean. Character art commissions are an exception to this rule.
EDIT: Made a small edit to clarify that art commissions are still fine.

Updated Godmodding rule to include these clauses:
Minor instances of NPC interactions may however be used, such as and for example: "The merchant said they would spread the rumor I was seeking a special item," or "the bartender takes my order and brings me my drink," or "The local guards gave me directions or information about the laws."

It is also safe to assume obedience of reasonable orders given to subordinate NPCs (for instance, NPC assets controlled by your guild), but not the success of those orders. If you would like to speak directly in these subordinate NPCs' voices, please seek permission from the DM team first and this will be reviewed on a per-case basis. An exception to this is roleplaying your summoned creatures, and this may be done at will with the expectation that the actions roleplayed are appropriate for that type of creature.
