Forum & Game Rules

Welcome to the iRosePh Message Boards! We hope you enjoy your time here discussing the game and getting to know your fellow gamers.

The primary function of this message board is to provide an area for player interaction and to submit feedback to the development and publishing teams behind iRoseph.

We have created the following list of message board rules and guidelines to keep this an enjoyable environment for us all. Violations of these guidelines may result in your removal from this message board and/or potential suspension (or permanent closure), of your iRosePh account.

Forum moderators will not be able to personally discover each and every infraction. We encourage our users to actively use the "Report" button at the bottom of each post. These posts are reviewed several times a day, and represents the bulk of posts that receive disciplinary attention.

This may be long, but you need to read this in order to keep you out of trouble here at the iRosePH Boards.
