We generally don’t like legalese but like any other specialized tool in the world, there’s a place for it.
The Game is Free and Provided As-Is
Nirvana does not solicit payment for one-time or reoccurring costs. At no point will the administration demand payment for connection services rendered. Nirvana is also not held liable under a service level agreement, since there is not any furnished.
Mature Content Warning
As Nirvana is purely a text based game, there is no pornographic material accessible within. By connecting to this game, you acknowledge that you are at least 13 years of age, and are authorized to use a computer by parental or guardian consent.
On an informal level, think of the type of conversational chatter within Nirvana to be akin to that of a reputable sports bar type of establishment. The ages of players run the gamut from young adults, and old retired folk. The content of the game itself ranges from general audience level (typically newbie realms), to PG (Parental Guidance recommended), to an occasional R-rated content- mostly in the aspects of fictional action and violence.
