A. Opening & Maintaining Account

While some TF Services may be generally accessed by the public, certain aspects of the Website (e.g. posting in the forums) and the use of certain TF Services requires you to create an account (the “Account”). If you have questions about registration for an Account, please contact us at libby@twistofthefates.com .

Only “natural persons,” as opposed to any kinds of legal entities (e.g., corporations, limited liability companies, and/or partnerships), shall have the privilege of establishing an Account. By entering into this Agreement and creating an Account, you represent that you are an adult and have the legal capacity to enter into a contract in the jurisdiction where you reside. You agree to comply with this Agreement on behalf of yourself and, at your discretion, any minor children for whom you are the parent or legal guardian and whom you have authorized to play the Game using your Account and/or authorized to use the Website. You further agree that you are entirely liable for all activities conducted through your Account, and are responsible for ensuring that you and/or your child is aware of, understands, and complies with the terms of this Agreement and any and all other Overall Terms.

Please note that in utilizing certain areas of the Website (e.g. purchasing certain merchandise), you will be requested to provide additional information such as your name, full address and in some cases, payment information. You must be eligible to use the TF Service for which you are registering. Some TF Services require the creation of a “username” or a “persona.” Usernames and personas are tied to your Account. You may not use a username or persona that is used by someone else, is vulgar or offensive, or otherwise violates the Terms of Use. TF reserves the right to block or remove any username or persona, if the use thereof violates the Terms of Use, any Overall Terms, laws or regulations, including, without limitation, personality rights, or trademarks.

TF will not ask you to reveal your password, or initiate contact with you asking for answers to your password security questions.

We follow generally accepted rules in the rpg tabletop game industry, as well as applicable regulations to help safeguard and prevent unauthorized access, use, alteration, modification and/or disclosure of your personal information. We strive to use appropriate organizational and technical means to safeguard the security of your personal information, however, no security measures are 100% effective. In the event you become aware of or reasonably suspect any breach of security, including without limitation any loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your personal information , you must immediately notify TF by emailing libby@twistofthefates.com. In addition, submissions made via e-mail are not protected by encryption and are vulnerable to interception during transmission.

B.  Specific Terms for a Single Account

TF may, at its discretion, allow you to open one single account (“Single Account”) which may be connected across different platforms including without limitation Steam, Nintendo Switch and Stadia (the “Platform(s)”) which shall enable cross-progression within a Game across said Platforms. Once one Platform is connected to a Single Account, you may only be able to add or remove a unique account from such Platform to the Single Account. Should you wish to modify the Platform account linked to the Single Account, you may do so only at the frequency detailed on the Website applicable to the Game.

If you make a purchase of a limited license to use a Virtual Good on a Platform, you will be able to access it from all Platforms connected to your Single Account, except for certain Virtual Goods which are subject to licensing restrictions, and except for Game Currency. The Game Currency is non-transferable from one Platform to another.

Further, in the event you choose to disconnect one of your Platforms from the Single Account (“Platform Disconnection”), you acknowledge and agree that (i) you may lose the progression within the Game that happened while such Platform was linked to the Single Account, and that (ii) the Virtual Goods acquired and/or purchased on such Platform while it was linked to the Single Account may be lost after such Platform Disconnection. For purposes of clarity, Virtual Goods only remain valid in the Platform account associated with such purchase.

If your Account is terminated pursuant to the Terms of Use or any other Overall Terms, or if you are banned from the Game and/or the Website for any reason and for any period of time, the ban or termination shall be valid on all Platforms on which the Account or Single Account is connected and/or the equipment linked to such Account or Single Account.

C.  Virtual Goods

You agree that TF reserves the right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate, game elements, including but not limited to Virtual Goods.

For the purposes herein, “Virtual Goods” refers to virtual items (including without limitation, characters, accessories, items such as “character customization”, power-ups, “skins”), points, credits, tokens and in-game currency (“Game Currency”) for use in the Game.

All Virtual Goods remain the property of TF. You acknowledge that TF may, in its sole discretion, in any general or specific case, modify features, functions or abilities of any element of its Games or any Virtual Goods (which may, among other things, make the Virtual Goods substantially more valuable, effective or functional, or less valuable, effective or functional, more common or less common, or eliminated entirely). You acknowledge and agree that all Virtual Goods represent a limited license right governed by the Overall Terms, and are not redeemable for any sum of money or monetary value from TF at any time.

TF may offer you the ability to acquire licenses to use Virtual Goods, such as by: (a) creating an Account or Single Account and “earning” a limited license to use Virtual Goods or (b) purchasing a limited license to use Virtual Goods for a fee or (c) participating in a contest or in in-game events and earning a limited license to use Virtual Goods.

All purchase or grant of Virtual Goods, whether made with “real money” or virtual currencies, are final and cannot be transferred, refunded, returned, replaced or exchanged for any sum of money, monetary value or virtual currency from TF at any time. The Virtual Goods are not redeemable for “real money” or monetary value from TF or any other person. TF does not have an obligation to exchange the Game Currency for anything of value, including but not limited to, real currency.  TF, in its sole discretion, has the absolute right to modify, replace, suspend, cancel or eliminate Virtual Goods, without notice.

The Game Currency is non-transferable from one Platform to another.

Note that depending on the country in which you are located, the validity period of purchased Virtual Goods may be limited to a certain period under applicable laws of certain jurisdictions. Further, TF and/or its licensors have the absolute right to regulate, discontinue, update, modify or eliminate any Virtual Goods at any time in its sole discretion, including their availability on Platforms and/or in the Account or Single Account. TF and its licensors shall have no liability to you or anyone else for these actions.

D. Subscriptions

TF may offer subscription plans (the “Subscription(s)”) for certain Games which will enable you the benefits detailed on the Game and/or Game’s Website, including but not limited to, the ability to “earn” various Products.

Except for a limited period where the Subscription may be offered for free, a Subscription fee will be charged on the specific billing date indicated on your Account page and/or in the Game.  You must provide a valid payment method to register for a Subscription, and TF may ask you to update your payment method at any time if it becomes invalid.

By agreeing to these Terms of Use and purchasing a recurring Subscription, you will have agreed to permit TF and/or its partners to automatically renew your Subscription to a TF Service by charging a valid credit card number which you have provided to TF and/or its partners.

Should your subscription renew automatically, recurring renewal payments will be taken from the payment method you selected at sign-up, unless and until you change your payment method and/or it becomes invalid, or until you cancel your Subscription according to the details provided on your Account page and/or in the Game. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration of the payment method, insufficient funds, or otherwise, TF may suspend your access to the Game until having successfully charged a valid payment method. Unless required by applicable law, the Subscription is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Subject to applicable law, and unless specifically stated in the Subscription at the moment of purchase or registration, if you subscribe to a renewable Subscription, you agree that at the end of the initial Subscription period and each renewal period thereafter, your Subscription fee will AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR THE APPLICABLE PERIOD (e.g. MONTHLY, WEEKLY, ETC.) at the then-current Subscription price (plus applicable taxes) on each renewal date without any additional action by you UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.

TF will provide you with notice of any changes to the fees or billing methods at least fifteen (15) business days in advance by posting such changes on the Website and/or in the Game. If any change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your Subscription at any time in accordance with the cancellation procedures applicable to each Platform and detailed on your Account page and/or in the Game, but TF will not refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before cancellation of your Subscription, and it will not prorate fees for any subscription, except in accordance with the rules of the applicable Platform. If your use of TF Services is subject to use or sales tax, then TF may also charge you for any such taxes, in addition to the Subscription fee or other fees. You must cancel your Subscription in advance prior to the renewal date, and at least by the amount of time detailed on your Account page and/or in the Game, in order to avoid renewal charges.

For some TF Services, TF may offer a free trial Subscription. If you accept a free trial Subscription, TF will begin to bill your Account for that TF Service when the free trial Subscription expires, unless you cancel your Subscription before that time, as detailed in the Game and/or in the Website. You are always responsible for any Internet service provider, telephone, wireless and other connection fees that you may incur when using TF Services, even when TF offers a free trial Subscription. Trial subscriptions are not transferable.

You may not combine, transfer or exchange your Subscription with or to other users or accounts for any reason, failure of which may result in suspension or termination of your Subscription and/or Account.

TF reserves its rights to cancel, suspend or terminate your access to the Subscription if it suspects activity that is contrary to the Terms of Use and any code of conduct applicable to the Game and/or any applicable law or regulation. If your Subscription is cancelled or otherwise terminated by TF, you may immediately lose access to the Games.

TF reserves the right to change such payment providers at any time without notice.

E.  Creative Submissions for Personal Use

TF may decide to grant you permission to use some parts of and publish “Fan Content”, defined as gameplay footage and/or artwork from our Games (excluding third party content, voices and music), to your website, YouTube or similar digital services only  if the following conditions are respected:

  • The use of the Fan Content is for non-commercial activities.

  • You must respect the ESRB rating of the Game when posting the Fan Content.

  • If the Fan Content is not owned by TF, you must obtain and respect third party licences.

  • You respect the Terms of Use.

TF grants you a free of charge, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use Fan Content without modification or modify the Fan Content for the purposes allowed in this section without territorial and temporal restrictions as long as all of the conditions set in this section and in the Terms of Use are respected. Even if TF grants you such permission, if music or other third-party content is included in your Fan Content, you will need to secure the content owner’s permission independently.

The use of the Fan Content for commercial activities is prohibited. As such, you are not allowed to charge a fee of any kind to grant the access to the Fan Content. If you intend to charge a subscription or access fee to generate revenue from the Fan Content, you are only allowed to do so if you execute a license agreement with us. The limited permission granted herein with respect to fan use of certain Fan Content does not cover such circumstances. However, you may generally monetize the Fan Content by using advertisements so long as the advertisements comply with the applicable laws and regulations.

In exchange for TF enabling your use of Fan Content, when you create Fan Content, you expressly grant to TF a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide, complete and irrevocable right to quote, re-post, use, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, syndicate, license, print, sublicense, distribute, transmit, broadcast, and otherwise communicate, and publicly display and perform the Fan Content, or any portion thereof, in any manner or form and in any medium or forum, whether now known or hereafter devised, without notice, payment or attribution of any kind to you or any third party. You grant TF all licenses, consents and clearances to enable TF to use such Fan Content for such purposes. You waive and agree not to assert any droit moral or similar rights you may have in such Fan Content.

If the TF Service on which you contribute Fan Content permits other users to access and use that Fan Content as part of the TF Service, than you also grant all other users of the relevant TF Service the right to use, copy, modify, display, perform, create derivative works from, and otherwise communicate and distribute your Fan Content on or through the relevant TF Service without further notice, attribution or compensation to you. This includes the right to promote the Fan Content, e.g. by sharing or reposting it on our official channels or in marketing assets or include them in the Games.  TF is entitled, but not obliged to use your name or nickname as means of attribution.

The Fan Content is not a joint, collective or collaborative work under any applicable laws. You agree to include TF’s trademark, copyright or other proprietary rights notices, as provided on the Website and/or Game, when displaying Fan Content, and agree to comply with usage guidelines that may be provided by TF from time to time. You shall not remove or alter any identifying information or copyright management information conveyed in connection with copies of Fan Content or Content, including in digital form; nor challenge TF’s or its licensors’ ownership of the Content, nor use or adopt any trademarks that might be confusingly similar to such Content.

TF reserves all rights, title and interest in and to the Fan Content which are not expressly granted herein. You shall not rent, lease, reproduce, modify, translate or create derivative works of the Fan Content except as expressly permitted herein, nor create any derivative works (including without limitation fiction or visual art) from, or in any way exploit, any of the heroes, weapons, other Content contained in the Game or on the Website, without the express written permission of TF. TF does not consent to the protection under the copyright laws of any unauthorized derivative work. The creation and sale of merchandise based on the Game, the Website, or upon Fan Content or TF Marks is expressly prohibited.

Under no circumstances will TF be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages, including lost profit or lost revenues, of any kind in connection with this permission. TF reserves the right in its sole discretion to expressly refuse this permission to any particular content, or to revoke this permission at any time.

These terms can be changed at any time without notice and TF reserves its rights to refuse your use of the Fan Content or request the takedown of your Fan Content for any reason.

If you do submit your Unsolicited Ideas to TF or to any of its employees and/or contractors despite this policy and regardless of what your letter says, then you hereby acknowledge and agree that, from the time of transmission or dispatch, you grant TF, and its designees a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicenseable, transferable, assignable, non-exclusive and royalty-free right and license to use, reproduce, distribute, adapt, modify, translate, create derivative works of, publicly perform, publicly display, digitally perform, make, have made, sell, offer for sale and import your Unsolicited Ideas, including, without limitation, all copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, industrial rights and all other intellectual and proprietary rights related thereto, in any media now known or hereafter developed, for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, including, without limitation, giving the Unsolicited Ideas to others, without any compensation to you.  You also give up any claim that any use by TF and/or its licensees of your Unsolicited Ideas violates any of your rights, including but not limited to moral rights, privacy rights, rights to publicity, proprietary or other rights, and/or rights to credit for the material or ideas set for therein.

In its sole discretion, TF may contact you to review and evaluate the Games, aspects or modules of the Games, or online features as part of, or prior to a wider Alpha test, Beta test, or commercial release thereof (hereafter “Pre-Release Games”) for the purposes identified with you prior to testing the Pre-Release Games. You will be asked to provide to TF certain feedback and suggestions regarding your experiences while reviewing and evaluating the Pre-Release Games and/or any other Content or Games. This process is referred to herein as a “Play Test”. If it is a closed Play Test, TF may ask you to enter into a confidentiality agreement (“Confidentiality Agreement”) for each specific Play Test BEFORE you are allowed to be a tester (“Tester”) and BEFORE any software is provided or made accessible to you. In such case, your participation as a Tester is subject to the Confidentiality Agreement, in addition to the following terms and conditions which apply to all Pre-Release Tests and/or to Play Test terms which you must accept prior to participating in such a test. Furthermore, as a participant, you have to comply with all the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and all rules applicable to Play Tests.

In connection with the Play Test, TF may provide you, on a temporary basis, Pre-Release Games, as well as any other Games, Content, and/or confidential and proprietary information (collectively, “Pre-Release Materials”).

You agree as a condition of participating in a Play Test to (i) not copy or reproduce the Pre-Release Materials, (ii) safeguard the Pre-Release Materials and prevent unauthorized access to, reproduction of, disclosure of and/or unauthorized use of, the Pre-Release Materials, and (iii) if applicable, fully comply with the terms and conditions of the Confidentiality Agreement.

You will carry out the testing personally and not provide access to Pre-Release Materials to any other person. You agree that breach of the above obligations will cause irreparable harm to TF, and TF is entitled to (in addition to any other remedies available to it) ex parte injunctive relief without bond to prevent the breach or threatened breach of your obligations. Your obligation to keep the Pre-Release Materials confidential will continue until TF publicly distributes, or has otherwise disclosed to the public through no fault of yours, the Pre-Release Materials and the Content that you are testing.

Upon request, you agree to immediately delete all copies of the Pre-Release Material which TF provided to you.

Nothing in these Terms of Use or any other Overall Terms shall be construed as granting you any rights or privileges of any kind with respect to the Pre-Release Materials or other Content. The Pre-Release Games are provided for testing on an “as is” and “as available” basis and TF makes no warranty to you of any kind, express or implied.

By participating in a Play Test, you agree that: (I) playing Pre-Release Games is at your own risk and you know that the Pre-Release Games may include known or unknown bugs, (ii) any value or status indicators that you achieve through game play may be erased at any time, (iii) TF has no obligation to make these Pre-Release Games available for play with or without charge for any period of time, nor to make them available at all, (iv) TF’s Terms of Use, Play Test specific terms and Privacy Policy apply to your use of the Pre-Release Games during the testing phase, and (v) if it is a closed Play Test, you will keep all information about the Pre-Release Materials confidential as stated above and not disclose such information to any other person.
