UNDERAGE PLAYERS - Achaea Online Help
15.2 UNDERAGE PLAYERS
Does Age Matter? ----------------- You must be at least age 13 to play Achaea. However, the vast majority of our playerbase is at least 18 years old, and our environment is oriented towards mature adventurers. That does not mean you are not welcome here if you are younger, but we expect you to conduct yourself with as much maturity as any other player. Immaturity is not a direct function of age; however, it is a sad fact that 95% of our 'problem adventurers' (generally those who do not have the emotional maturity necessary to follow the rules and act like a member of a community) are teenagers, particularly ones under 16 years of age. If you happen to be a younger teenage adventurer, don't worry. You will not be discriminated against based on your age. In fact, many young adventurers have conducted themselves with admirable aplomb and have risen to prominent positions within Achaea. No special treatment will be given to you if you cause problems. This is a role-playing world, and real-life excuses for behaviour are irrelevant to us. You will be deleted and will not be put back if you cross what we view as a very easy line to avoid (given that 99% of adventurers never cross that line, it's obviously easy to avoid doing it). Internet Safety and Minors -------------------------- Aside from the age requirement to play, there is another situation in which age definitely matters: sexual solicitation of minors. Sex and violence are facets of Achaea's mature roleplaying environment, but knowingly soliciting a minor for sexual activity of any kind is not permitted. If you are a minor and someone who knows your age is soliciting you sexually, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate.
