Zulu Hotel Forgotten Realms is a game server created to provide entertainment to its members, both players and staffs in general. As such, we implement and uphold rules so that through the course of gameplay no harm can come to yourself or other players. Rules have been created and must be followed by all players, including Staff members. The lack of understanding or ignorance of the rules is no reason to violate them. If in doubt, consult any member of the Staff or send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Players who become aware of rule breakers should contact server administration through the same email.
