15.11 LANGUAGE RULES
(See also HELP LANGUAGE for the various languages of Achaea.) (See also HELP OOC and HELP INSANITY for in and out of character.) The rules for using language in Achaea are simple. Do not inflict overly obscene language on people who you do not _know_ are willing to hear it, and do not use discriminatory language (racist, homophobic, sexist, etc) AT ALL, in any circumstance. Aside from the blanket ban on discriminatory language, we don't care what you talk about - in tells with friends (not just anyone: friends only), or - says (if with only friends present), - private clan channels. but we do not want to see awful or offensive language on any public channels (market, shout, yell, newbie), any city channels, House, Order, or organizationally-related clan channels. Our language rules fit within the general context of HELP OOC (or HELP ROLEPLAYING, or HELP INSANITY). WHERE DO THESE RULES APPLY -------------------------- In short: LANGUAGE RULES apply everywhere except tells to friends, says in the presence of friends only, and in clans (where the clan guidelines rule). They apply to warcries, mottoes, titles, and EVERYWHERE else beyond the exceptions noted. The exception is discriminatory language - that's banned anywhere in Achaea, regardless of how private you think the conversation is. (See also HELP LANGUAGE for the various languages of Achaea.)
