Re: returning players

one aditton. i have no idea how difficult it is tho create a system msg. can a gm do it or is it a day of programming for creator?

Re: returning players

sigh 2
the punishment changed from no punishment to instant removal from valuable account.

Re: returning players

@arashiko so WHY ARE WE GETTING THIS SYSYEM MESSAGE ABOUT THE PRIVACY POLICY CONSTANTLY?
