Galatium Terms of Service
Each individual person is allowed one account. Individuals who are found to have more than one account will receive a severe penalty. Multiple people may have accounts in one household, however they are not allowed to exchange any commodities between their accounts. Individuals may not log into another person's account, there are no exceptions! In this vein, babysitting(where someone logs into another person's account while they are away or on vacation) is most definitely not allowed. Please do not share your account e-mail and password with anyone. The internet provider, AOL, often times shows users as using the same IP address. We strongly encourage you not to play this game while using AOL to gain internet access. AOL users will find themselves being investigated routinely to see if they are part of a multiple account scenario.
Galatium will strive to be online at all times, and with a server that does not cause your experience in the game to be slow and aggravating. There is however no guarantee. It is a goal of the game owner to maintain a server that allows fast access to Galatium as often as possible.
While Galatium is not a censored environment, players can be penalized for being extremely inappropriate in game chat, message boards, player profiles, player avatars, and game mails. This is a game intended to be fun for all, and in this vein, the few who enjoy ruining this environment consistently will be dealt with swiftly. While it is important to have verbal exchanges at times when in disagreement, this can be done in an appropriate manner. Since this game is open to the public, and there are many avenues of communication within the game that anyone can experience, penalties will be issued as needed to enforce this portion of the Terms of Service. Galatium Staff have the rights to remove or edit anything that is posted in the game by a player that breaks this tenet of the Terms of Service.
All players of Galatium agree to follow the established Game Rules. These rules are posted in easy to find locations. Players breaking the Game Rules will be warned and/or penalized. Any game rules posted within the game are not a replacement of the Galatium Terms of Service, but an amendment and addition to them. Please make sure to familiarize yourself with the game rules, as warnings may be few, and ignorance is not an acceptable reason to be excused from penalties.
