Server Rules

Do not perform or be involved with any of the following:

  1. Multiple Accounts

Only 1 ingame account per person is allowed. Depending on the situation you may not be punished if a second account is being used for auto-vending only as long as it is not being abused for any of the things listed below.

  • Abusing any system using multiple accounts to gain a personal benefit is strictly forbidden. This includes and is not limited to, Battlegrounds, WoE, Game Master- and automated-Events or Login Rewards.
  • Hiding multiple accounts behind different IP addresses or proxies is strictly forbidden.
  • We do not hesitate to permanently ban all accounts related/being involved into such cases.
  1. Bug/Glitch Abuse & Cheating

Knowingly or unknowingly abusing a bug, glitch or cheating to one's advantage.

  • All bugs and glitches must be reported immediately or you're considered a bug abuser / cheater. If you're not certain if it's an actual bug or glitch, report it anyways!
  • Bug reports must either be reported public for anyone to see via our Discord;
  • Or in case it's a more sensitive case, please report it directly to a GM.
  • Players who observe another player engaged in bug abuse or cheating must report that player immediately to us.
  • Players who do not report players mentioned above are considered an accomplice and will be punished alike.
  • We do not hesitate to permanently ban all accounts related/being involved into such cases.
  1. Cheating

Using third party programs or any programs not supported for use by ObsidianRO for personal gain or malicious intent.

  • Botting, Macros, manipulating files associated to ObsidianRO and Packet Manipulation is considered cheating.
  • Causing malicious harm to the server or any player/staff member's account(s) or anything on one's account is considered cheating.
  • 3rd party tools or any modifications which can affect the gameplay are also against the rules.
  • Using more than one character at any given time is considered cheating.
  • Abusing any system such as AFK farming during Battlegrounds, War of Emperium or other similar features is strictly forbidden.
  • We do not hesitate to permanently ban all accounts related/being involved into such cases.
  1. Scamming

Purposefully misleading players into deals or situations in which one will benefit from the victimized player.

  • This includes impersonating any member of the GM team or any other person, such as someone's friend.
  • Asking for account names/passwords/personal information is considered scamming.
  • Purposefully selling lower-grade items that mimic higher-grade items. (i.e.; selling the common item "Battered Kettle" at a price that the similar-looking item, "Magic Kettle", would be sold.)
  • Blackmailing; extorting items, zeny or any related thing from a player by the use of threats, intimidation or revelation of scandalous or personal/defamatory circumstances.

4.1. Borrowing Items

Borrowing an item and not returning it to it's rightful owner doesn't have to be treated as scamming.

A Game Master however, may still punish if it's proved.

It is really important that you understand: We're only offering a TRADING SYSTEM. Never borrow any items, if you're wanting to get it back afterwards. All reports on borrowing an item will be rejected from the GM Team.

4.2. Unrightfully obtained Items

If an item was unrightfully obtained in any way will be treated the same as borrowing items.
If the GM team or the game forcibly drops an item of any player unintentionally, it will be rectified.

  1. Real Money Trading/Intraserver Trading

Trading items, zeny, accounts, or any virtual ObsidianRO aspects for real money is forbidden, this includes trading with Cash Shop Points.

  • ObsidianRO and everything associated with it is not to be used for personal profit.
  • It's not in our interest to protect both, the buyers and the sellers. As there's no system available to lead you through the process, there's also no guarantee that either the buyer nor the seller will get their respective item/account or money.
  • If you have been scammed in such a case, do not report it, as we're not going to take any action.
  1. Verbal Abuse

Directing insults, demeaning names, slander, racism, profanity or uncivilized attitude toward players, the staff, the server, or any aspect of the server.

  • Acts of verbal abuse are not tolerated in private chat, towns, out of towns, in channels, through megaphone usage or in WoE.
  • Swearing in PvP gets tolerated to some degree since it is part of the competitive game play. This however doesn't mean that you can't be punished for severe profanity and/or verbal abuse.
  • Since your participation in guild/party chat is "at will", we take a very lenient stance on this issue.
  • Only the most severe harassment will be considered.
  • The Game Masters will be the judge of this, and not any other player -- whether they be a victim, the convicted, witness, or any other status.
  • Repeated acts of verbal abuse, whether consecutively or not, will be treated with a harsher punishment.
  • Refer to this article regarding words that may be treated as verbal abuse.
  • Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior will not be tolerated.

We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis and take action as necessary.

  1. Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment regards the unwelcome use of sexually suggestive comments in a social environment.

  • This holds true irrespective of whether the comment itself is derogatory or simply crude.
  • If you mean to joke, it is your responsibility to ensure that your jokes and humour will not be considered offensive to the person you interact with before you make them.
  • If they are offended, 'I was just joking' will not be considered to be a valid defense.
  1. Spamming

Repeatedly emitting the same line(s) of text whether it's consistent or not (chatting or buying/selling/trading), and/or skill consecutively.

  • Spamming is not allowed anywhere, and is zero-tolerance in town areas and public channels.
  1. Illegal Chatting/Vending

Chat Rooms and Vending Shops have to be placed within their designated areas.

  • Chat rooms shouldn't block the view of surrounding NPCs and have to be created off the sidewalks.
  • No more than 1 Vendor of the same player in the Vending Area, players caught will be punished.
  1. Advertisement

Advertising another Ragnarok Online (or any other MMORPG) server or mentioning the name of another server to lure players to the said location. Advertising “for-profit” personal websites/youtube channels/twitch streams/etc that do not in any way relate to ObsidianRO.

  • Server advertisement or mentioning another server in any way is prohibited.
  • Do not name characters after servers or with "RO"/"Ro" at the end of the name. All lowercase is fine unless we see it as an obvious advertisement.
