Because you chop other players up with the might of your sword.

I don't think the enviornment (in general not just one aspect) is suitable for people younger than 13. And I don't think the other players would like these younger players on. At least i knwo i was pretty annoying when I played Graal at ages 10-12.

Sort of.

COPPA requires that children/adults must be at least 13 without parental permission to play. If you're under 13, you need to have permission (written consent) from your parents.

Why is this?
Well, any filter in gaming can be avoided, and the US law (I believe also Canada and all of Europe) finds all forms of talking to other people "risky." Perhaps some 7 year old just gave out his/her address to someone he/she didn't know. Most people 13 or older would know how to behave, but these Graal Forums prove me wrong.

I'm 15. :(

Besides, the law isn't owned by Linux Cyberjoueurs. It's owned by [email protected]# ;)

Content = bad for children
1.) Violence
2.) Cursing
3.) Sex (Hey, remember when people had graal sex?)
4.) Possibility of corruption of one's mind (people influence people)

People still have Graal sex, sadly.
Corruption of minds... ! SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES!
