    Each player may only own and play one account per server.
    • §1.1 Registration
      The e-mail address used for the registration of an account must be under the personal and exclusive control of the person who registered the account.

The owner of an account is fully responsible for all actions taken with the account.
    • §1.2 Password
      The owner of an account may not transfer the password of an account to any person playing on the same game world (server). Additionally, knowingly choosing the same password on the same game world as another person is illegal; any of these actions is considered multiaccounting, as defined in these rules.

      However, it is permissible to transfer the password of an account to a person or persons playing on different game world (or not playing at all) in order to play a single account together.

      There is no compensation for damages done by someone knowing the password for an account. The person receiving the password is subject to the rules of Travian as well as the General Terms and Conditions.
    • §1.3 Email changes / account transfers
      In order to change the email address of your account or to transfer your account to another player NOT playing on the same server, go into your account profile (/spieler.php?s=3) and fill out the new email information.
    • §1.4 Switching accounts
      In order to switch an account with a person on the same game world, both persons must send an e-mail message to from the e-mail address currently registered for the account. The e-mail must contain the following information:
      1. The game world on which the account resides
      2. The nickname of the account
      3. The e-mail address of the new owner.
      Afterwards both persons must request the password for their new account via the password retrieval function.
  • §2 Sitting & same pc usage
    • §2.1 Sitting
      Every player has the right to name two sitters who may play the account during an owner's absence. Sitters must play the account they are sitting to the account�s full benefit. Abuse of this function is punishable.
      The sitter of an account must sit the account using the account sitting function in game. The sitter of an account may not tend to an account by logging on with the password of the account they are sitting (see §1.2).
      There is no compensation for damages done by a sitter. Owners of an account are fully responsible for the actions of any sitters for their account. In the event that sitters of an account do not follow these rules and the General Terms and Conditions of Travian, both the account owner and the sitter may be punished.
    • §2.2 Same pc usage
