The online chat system is a privilege and one we would like to see you keep, so please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with Mythmoor chat rules.
The following rules apply to PUBLIC chat channels and are not exhaustive:
1) You may not purposely disrupt chat by excessive trolling.
Trolling – Is defined as a user posting inflammatory remarks or annoying behavior to intentionally provoke other users.
Do not post with the sole intent of upsetting other players.
Do not post with the intent of causing unrest.
Do not post to offend, insult, taunt or aggravate other users and staff.
Do not post excessive shouting (caps) or Ascii art.
Do not post to defame or discredit Mythmoor staff.
2) You may not harass (sexually or otherwise), verbally abuse, threaten, berate, flame or cause unwanted distress to anyone.
3) You may not use excessively sexually explicit language; try to keep it PG 16 most of the time. Furthermore, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive language won’t be tolerated. This includes workarounds, symbols, links, misspelling and text within images.
4) You may not discuss, post items or links relating to exploit abuse and other forms of cheating, religion, pornography, illegal drugs or the abuse of such drugs, ‘warez’, copyright infringement and ‘pirated’ materials (including illegal torrents) or any other illegal activity. While we encourage open minded discussion, if someone is getting offended please change the subject. Comparing in game godhood to actual world religions in the real world is not something ok to do. The gods in game are a fantasy world with no value in real life and no such comparisons should be made.
5) Mythmoor staff would prefer English to be used when speaking in public chats and when making support calls. If you cannot use English, a translator may be a good option. Mocking or insulting someone trying their best is not acceptable and may result in an official warning or worse.

6) You may never impersonate another user on our server, and you may certainly not impersonate any member of Mythmoor staff, or falsely suggest that you are staff.
7) You may not use the Mythmoor Wurm chat system to sell or advertise the sale of products which are not relevant to Wurm or Mythmoor, period. You may not sell or advertise the sale of products which are illegal.
8) Send a private message or /tell to the moderator in question if you have a question about a moderation action or wish to appeal a moderation action. If a satisfactory solution cannot be achieved then send your concerns to a Lead Game Master (usually via a forum pm).
9) You may not advertise another server on the Mythmoor forums, or using chat, this means private messages, kingdom chats or global chats.
The ignore feature should be used at any time you do not wish to receive messages from another player and is your primary personal control of your own private messages. You will not receive text posted by someone on your personal ignore list. Example: ‘/ignore <playername>’
Players on premium accounts may snipe other players ‘/snipe <playername>’ which will mute the player if enough people issue it roughly at the same time. You can only have one snipe per time period. The command ‘/ignore <playername>’ has automatic snipe functionality.
Moderation Actions (CM/GM)
Moderators may issue directives as deemed necessary to enforce these rules.
Warning – Moderators may warn any user for breaches of the chat rules.
Muting – Moderators may mute any user for breaches of the chat rules.
Temporary Ban – Moderators may issue temporary bans for breaches of the chat rules.
Permanent Ban – Moderators may permanently ban any user who offends on a regular basis, or whose offense is severe. All permanent bans are subject to review.
1) Posting guidelines are provided at the top of the trade chat tab. The text in purple, trade chat is for trade it should not be cluttered with other things. You may use PC for a price check, you may use WTS to list what you have to sell, you may use WTB to list what you want to buy, you may use @name to reply to a players posting, beyond that you should take your deal making/bartering/chatting to pm, global or some other chat format, this keeps trade clean so people can tab over and quickly see what people are buying and selling. You are not allowed to use a prefix just to be able to say what you want in trade. You shouldn’t go PC im drinking some coffee… You should not go PC I will beat their price on anything. Instead go WTS with a list of your offerings and prices, if they are cheaper the players can figure that out. Not using the proper prefixes and using prefixes to get around the fact it wont let you post without them just to chat will start resulting in 1 hour mutes for first offenses and longer for repeated. Continuous abuse will be forwarded to the GM staff by the CM staff for possible action to force you to take a break from the game.
Supplemental Friendly Neighbors Policies
This server is focused on community. Yes enjoy the game, build your things, do everything the game has to offer, but we want to have an environment of friendly people that are enjoying a game, to relax, have fun, and get away from real life. If your consideration of fun is ruining the day of another player, then this is not the place for you. You are not required to socialize, but if you do enter the open chats or pm another, you need to always be respectful of others (this does not mean you can’t pick at them as long as nobody is getting mad) and generally socially acceptable. This supplemental rules section is being designed to clarify some things that seem to be unclear, in an effort to make sure we keep our community a positive environment. It may be updated regularly, it will be updated as needed.
1) This is a fantasy world not real life. Some people may come here and become friends and discuss their real life. However if they are not open to discussing it you may not try to bully them into it. You also may not disrupt their fantasy. It does not matter if a man is playing a female character, and wants to pretend to be an actual female while they are here, or vice versa. That is their choice, and calling them out on it borderlines the rule against sexual orientation harassment. Regardless of if it is true or not, if you like it or not, the solid rule is it is their business. If a person comes on here and says they are a woman, go with it, even if you believe in your whole heart they are a man, or vice versa, it does not matter. There will be absolutely no tolerance for anything even bordering on race, sexual orientation, transgender, creed, nationality, or anything in these categories. We may issue a warning the first offense for benefit of doubt you haven’t read the rules, after that we will be forced to give you a 7 day break, and a subsequent offense permanent ban. This is out of my hands as the server is hosted in Canada and they have strict laws about these things there. Now note we won’t just come at you if you are doing back and forth with a friend like sometimes the Americans and the Brits will pick on each other in good fun, but we aren’t really insulting a nationality that is ribbing between friends, know the difference or don’t bother.
2) If it is not deeded it is fair game. This is a bit vague and needs to be clarified a bit to avoid confusion. What this means is that if you intend to use a space and want to deed there, it is fine, even if your new neighbors don’t like it. It is preferred you discuss with your new neighbors first and come to friendly living arrangement terms, in case they have intents of expansion, but not required. However if you deed just to block someone, or to take over their work to try and sell them their work space back, simply put deeding just to be a (insert foul descriptor here) that is not acceptable and we will remove your deed.
3) Negativity rubs off and disrupts the enjoyment of others. This includes complaints that are not constructive in nature. Just ranting about something does not help anything. If you have a complaint, grievance, or do not like how we have done something. Please take a moment to sit back, gather all of your thoughts about it, construct a well thought out detailed opinion, then report it either to suggestions on our discord, via a /support ticket or directly to Xype on steam. Ranting will get ignored, properly done serious complaints will be considered and listened to. We would like to keep most of that out of the public chats, due to if someone else disagrees, it starts causing a disruption in chat and makes people upset. Lets try to keep chat positive!
4) What happens in PVP stays in PVP. This is true, and GM’s will not take any involvement in PVP issues other than stuck or some other serious form of game disruption. However this ONLY applies inside the PVP zone. You may not take your PVP fueds into the PVE area no matter how close to the PVP zone that area may be. Also keep in mind that Global and Freedom chats are not PVP chats, keep your trash talk in local.
Anyone caught using the ESP mod may now have negative action taken against there account. This is a decision based on reaction of the majority of the community. ESP mod will no longer be allowed, anyone caught using it will have to deal with GM punishment.
Vanity Mount Subsection
Vanity mounts belong exclusively to the player who purchased them. If you find a vanity mount in the wild or on an abandoned deed, please open a ticket with its location and you will be rewarded with 3 silver and the mount will be retrieved and cared for by a GM. If you are caught with someone else's vanity mount you may be subject to punishment based on the GM codex.
