    Intro
    In this post, we will be laying out the fundamental server rules and guidelines. By no means is this list comprehensive and you will not find every last scenario listed. Please use your best judgement and common sense when playing on the server. Just because a specific action is not covered below does not mean we do not reserve the right to punish depending on the violation.
