TO BE FOLLOWED SO EVERYONE ENJOYS PLAYING THE GAME

**Please note that sharing your characters is ill advised. If you share a character with someone you share their IP history, and there for you must share in any punishment they are to ever recieve. Sharing your character is a fast way to get it and all your possessions stolen and admin wont help you because you where warned. Selling a character for ingame or real life money or items is not permitted under any circumstances and admin will act accordingly if this is suspected**

1. WHAT IS ACCEPTED BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS OTHERS
Acceptable behavior is defined as being friendly and helpful. Constructive criticisms, comments, actions and gestures are allowed. Please be careful what you say when using the public chat feature, what you might think of as a joke or satirical humor, may not be taken so by others. Be nice, friendly and likeable to your fellow players and the admin team. Do not play this game to annoy, to make trouble, or harass other players. If your behavior is deemed as being unacceptable, you will be warned and then punished accordingly if you persist.


2. WHAT IS NOT ACCEPTED BEHAVIOUR TOWARDS OTHERS
The use of derogative, ethnic, religious or social comments to ANY player or member of staff will not be tolerated. Aranock has a friendly and helpful community to which we intend on keeping. Players who openly insult or offend players and/or admin will quickly find them selves in trouble.

Please note that abuse towards our staff is a bannable offence, you won't be warned.


3. BEHAVE NICELY TO OTHERS

Some players will choose to role play as 'bad guys' and can do so within the law. However staff will step in when role play becomes obstructive to other players progress, or when it becomes offensive or turns into real life harassment. There for:

Do not use offensive language in public or private channels such as /shout or /ctells.

Cussing in /tells must stop if other person objects. Vulgar, foul, abusive and rude language will not be accepted within our community, neither will sexual innuendos, regardless of who it is directed at or by what means its delivered by (i.e. #shouts, #tells or normal talk).

Harassment of known minors will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form. These players are already vulnerable and we wish to provide them a safe environment to enjoy. Anyone caught bullying or harassing a minor will find themselves severely punished and/or banned. Anyone found making sexually inappropriate remarks to a minor will have their IP sent to their states police force with a transcript of the conversation.

The pentagram quest has a certain etiquette attached to it that you would be advised to follow. Your presence in the quest means that if you don’t pull your weight, others will have to work twice as hard. With this in mind please try to avoid going away from keyboard when in the pentagram quest. We all have times when we have to answer the door or get a phone call and this is fine, but if you know you’re going to be away for long then please recall to the temple. Staff will consider punishing a player for harassment when:
1) Anyone purposefully sits idle in the pentagram quest as a means of annoying other players.
2) Anyone purposefully blocking the route of another player be it in the pentagram quest, the labyrinth or in town quest areas, regardless of method used to do so.
3) Anyone who uses auto walk or goes away from keyboard in areas populated by monsters as a means of fighting and gaining exp without being physically present.

Players can use imaginative ways to harass others that are not covered in this rule, Staff there for retain the right to punish under this rule for violations not covered here as long as Staff can demonstrate that harassment was the sole intention at the time.


4. MISUSE OF COMMUNICATION COMMANDS
Misusing a command such as but not limited to "#shout" to impersonate or trick admin or players is forbidden. Fake shouting/fake shouts as its known will earn you punishment

5. DO NOT MULTI-LOG
Multi-logging to power train an alternative character is forbidden (We do know when a proxy IP is being used). However, the only exception to this rule is to transfer items from one character to your alternative character. This must be done in town or clan halls. The transferring of quest items from one character to any other character is not allowed and is a bannable offence. If caught multi-logging in any quest areas such as pents or random dungeons but not limited to, you will be punished.

Spelling your own character by the use of multi-logging, regardless of where either of the alts are found is still illegal.


6. DO NOT LAG OUT OF DEATHS OR COMBAT
Do not lag out of death, pvp and clan fights or intentionally cause lag. Lagging out of an area to get spelled up is illegal, as is lagging out of any of the labs. We can tell when a player has lagged out from a connection failure and when they have purposely caused the game to crash to avoid a death in the game. Lagging out of the game under any circumstances is illegal. There is no reason to risk being punished for it. The excuse "I couldn't be bothered to walk to the tavern" is not acceptable, there are recall scrolls and a recall spell. Use them! Use of game lag to avoid being hit by NPCs or players is also misuse of the /lag command and may lead to this command being removed from the player.

Closing the game to avoid a death is also considered to be illegal.


7. QUEST HELPING
Skill quests are to be soloed or done with help by group range characters only. If you can’t group a player then you can’t go questing together.

Quest Items
Quest items are not to be traded, sold, given or blatantly dropped on the floor so that another player can take them.

Riddle answers
The riddle quests/labs are there to give players a small challenge unlike the other challenges in the game, therefore it is illegal to reveal the answers to any and all of the riddle quests/labs.


8. LEADING
Leading players outside of the 3 rank grouping range through town quests or the pentagram quest is illegal. Both the leader and the follower will be punished.
Lagging out to bypass group portals whether intentional or not, is illegal.

Leading NPCs away from an area with any kind of intent, whether it be to avoid them or allow others to avoid them, or interfere with others, is deemed as an unacceptable conduct of game play (in pents for example).


9. DO NOT BUG ABUSE
It's simple really, Don't!

Don't keep it to yourself, report it to a member of staff or email the admin team, and don't go trying to exploit it. If you're caught abusing a bug you will be stripped of whatever you gained and/or kicked from the game, or something worse, depending on the nature and severity. The sooner you report it the better, if you find a bug and fail to report it until months later you will likely be punished for bug abuse, so its very important that you report it straight away. You can do so by either #tell'ing a member of staff in the game or you can email the admin team.

Note: To tell who's a staff member and who's not, type "/who" or "#who" within the game, this will give you a list of players currently online. Players listed in Green are members of staff, players listed in gold are normal players.


10. DO NOT USE MACROS!


11. DO NOT SPAM
This includes but is not limited to fake messaging such as #tells and #shouts. Excessive use of capitals and spell cast spamming is not allowed.


12. RESPECTING OUR STAFF AND THEIR DECISIONS
If a member of staff tells you to stop something, or informs you that you are breaking a rule. You must follow their instruction. Do not argue with our staff. If you disagree with what a member of staff has said or told you to do, then please follow their instructions and then email the admin team.

Arguing with our staff will get you into even more trouble. So please don't.


13. UNIQUE WEAPONS
In order to ensure the game is fair, and all players have a chance at getting a unique item. We have restricted the number of uniques a player can own. The current limit is 2 per person not per character.

Storing uniques in clan halls or on the ground elsewhere is strictly forbidden. All uniques found in these areas will be re-distributed into the game without any warning.


14. MOST IMPORTANT ENJOY THE GAME
Please remember this is a free game, provided by the gods for your enjoyment and pleasure.
