These Terms of Service, along with any and all posted policies for Legendary Deeds, extend to the entire chat environment. In choosing to participate in the chat environment in any way (participating in the chat, submission of characters and/or character backgrounds/histories, submission of storylines or other ideas, posting to the forums or on the java chat platform, etc) you agree that you have read and understood these policies, and that your presence here is contingent upon abiding by them.
Any and all policies of Legendary Deeds may be changed at any time without warning or notice. You agree that the most current version of all chat policies are the ones by which you are bound. We will announce when changes are made, but it is not our responsibility to ensure that you are kept up-to-date with these policies; rather, it is your responsibility to check our policies on a periodic basis to ensure that you are aware of any changes.



Copyright Notices

Legendary Deeds is based on the creations of White Wolf; we claim no ownership of any of White Wolf’s copywritten materials and make use of them in strict accordance with the guidelines presented under the Fair Use Act (http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#107).



Artistic License

Legendary Deeds may stray from the White Wolf rules and settings as written in the telling of our stories. This is to allow for individuality, innovation, and creativity in our venues. We are not in any way committed to using anything and everything published for their properties.
The games on Legendary Deeds are set in several cities. We claim no authenticity in our representation of existing locations, and have often take liberal and artistic license with various landmarks, legends and histories in order to create the fictional setting we use for the chat environment. Any resemblance to actual people is coincidental.



Mature Themes and Content

Legendary Deeds is a chat in which mature scenes and storylines may be run, including adult themes such as violence and sexuality. If you are under the age of 18, you are not permitted to play at Legendary Deeds. If you are not comfortable with adult content, inform an ST before a scene begins, but be aware that the ST has no obligation to change the content they've prepared; they will simply warn you if the scene will contain something to which you object. If you object to a scene with other players, or a player-run scene, you may ask that the scene be toned down, but if an agreement cannot be reached, it is your responsibility to leave a scene that makes you uncomfortable. If you are acting in good faith, there will be no repercussions for doing so.



Use of Submitted Material

By submitting any material to Legendary Deeds, you agree that we have the right to electronically store, copy, retrieve, alter, manipulate and use in any way necessary to maintain the storylines, plot continuity and operation of Legendary Deeds. If you choose to leave Legendary Deeds abruptly (for whatever reason) or are banned, we reserve the right to use your characters in any way we deem necessary to bring any storylines they are involved in to a close, including the death of said characters.



Deletion of Submitted Material

Material you submit to Legendary Deeds may be removed or deleted from Legendary Deed's chat environment at any time if it is deemed offensive. Deciding what is or is not offensive is at the discretion of the Administrators what may be acceptable IC may not be acceptable OOC.

  • Hate language, including racial, religious, sexual or gender slurs or epithets
