These rules are subject to change at any given time by certain members of the Board of Directors. It is YOUR responsibility to keep up with changes made to this page.

Real Money & GenesisServers
We do not condone the purchase of in-game items outside of our Server Store, asking for money for in-game items or selling in-game items for real-life money is seen as "scamming" as there is no way to prove that it is a legitimate transaction that is safe for the person(s) involved.
If caught doing this, you'll likely receive a permanent ban from the server.
GenesisServers are not liable for any transactions made between players outside of our Store with real-life money, you'll be held solely accountable for your actions, as will the person offering money/taking the money. You have been warned.
