Rules & Guidelines
Last Updated: 01/18/2017



As with all communities, they are always at their best when all members treat one another with respect and use the utmost courtesy. We ask that when using Flight Rising, you conduct yourself in a civilized, respectful manner.

We have created a number of guidelines below to describe what behavior is expected from all players of Flight Rising. Please note that these guidelines are not entirely exhaustive, and may not encompass or address all manner of offensive behavior - in this regard, the administration and moderator teams will have full discretion to take care of behavior that they feel is inappropriate. These guidelines apply to usernames, dragon names, clan profiles, clan profile comments, dragon biographies, and all other areas in which players may enter text.
  • Our policy on Dragon Naming can be found here.
  • Player behavior in the forums is covered in our Forum Code of Conduct found here.

Please remember that access to the site is a privilege and not a right. Stormlight Workshop does reserve the right to suspend access to Flight Rising for the reasons outlined in our Terms of Service, or reasons that include, or not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines. Please also note that we reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case-by-base basis.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to moderate activities or posts that happen off of the Flight Rising website; please remember that linking to rule breaking content is treated the same as if that content is posted directly to the Flight Rising website and will be actioned and removed.

If you choose not to do business or interact with someone, do so politely, or exercise the block feature. Please do not post on your clan profile your intentions to completely shut out a group of players due to their chosen element (see Public Blacklisting above). There are many great players out there who would probably love to be your friend, regardless of element.
