Salutations players and members,
First and foremost, welcome to Eclipse!
The guidelines and rules listed below are specifically explain what behavior is explicitly asked of you here, and also what you can expect from the members around you. They may not address all offensive behaviors, and as such, we expect you to understand that humans should have their own personal code of conduct that they hold themselves to, and hope you have a good moral compass. Also, suspension or banishment from the game will not always result in the same punishment on Discord, although in some severe cases, it will. Eclipse reserves the right to suspend your account at virtually any time, with or without reason; regardless of the time you've spent with us or the contribution you've put towards our future.
Please note that we reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case to case basis and the action we take may be more lenient or more severe depending on our personal judgement over the case. As a final note, everyone is expected to have a good time and enjoy every service we provide, the Official Discord is not an exception to this case!
