We want the DKG Forums to be a fun and safe environment for all players. Our games belong in the category of Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games, with the key words being "Massively Multiplayer". In playing our games and posting in the respective game forums, you will encounter thousands of other players who share the same passion, hailing from vastly different backgrounds and cultures. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. We've done everything we can to make this a great forum but now it's up to you, the players, to breathe life into the world.
