Terms of Service

 

The following sets of rules are in conjunction to the General Terms and Conditions of goodtravian. You should familiarize yourself with the General Terms and Conditions to verify what is allowed and what is prohibited, especially in case of an account that has been banned for a rule violation.

Inciting, manipulating, encouraging, assisting or conspiring with others to violate any of goodtravian Rules is impermissible. These rules apply for players that will delete their accounts or are currently deleting their accounts without exception.

 1Password, Registration & ownership§

Each player may only own and play one account per server.

 1.1Registration§

The e-mail address used for the registration of an account must be under the personal and exclusive control of the person who registered the account. The person owning the e-mail address currently registered for an account is considered the owner of the account, regardless of any other personal or alliance agreements. The owner of an account is fully responsible for all actions taken by the account.

1.2Password§

The owner of an account may not transfer the password of an account to any person playing on the same game world (server). Additionally, knowingly choosing the same password on the same game world as another person is illegal; any of these actions is considered multiaccounting, as defined in these rules.

However, it is permissible to transfer the password of an account to a person or persons playing on a different game world (or not playing at all) in order to play a single account together.

There is no compensation for damages done by someone knowing the password of an account. The person receiving the password is subjected to the rules of goodtravian as well as the General Terms and Conditions.

Afterwards, both parties must request the password for their new account via the password retrieval function.

2Sitting & same pc usage§

  2.1Sitting§

Every player has the right to name two sitters who may play the account during the owner's absence. Sitters must play the account they are sitting to the account’s full benefit. Abuse of this function is punishable.

There is no compensation for damages done by a sitter. Account owners are fully responsible for the actions done by the chosen sitters of their account. In the event that sitters of an account do not follow these rules and the General Terms and Conditions of goodtravian, both the account owner and the sitter may be held responsible and punished.
