    Server Rules
    The server rules are in place to make sure Shadowblockz is a safe place where all players of all ages, and all backgrounds, can play peacefully. It's common sense to what is and what isn't allowed on Shadowblockz, however we have outlined the specific rules that you will be punished for if you break them. Please make sure to read the rules through each time we update them, as the changes may affect you.

    All users are to read and follow the rules to avoid being punished. If for any reason a rule needs to be changed or modified, a staff member has the right to do so. All rules apply to ALL users.
