    Some of the new players to the RealMUD server have asked for the rules that are in place on the RM server. Here is a list of them, as I cannot find another spot with them on the site at the moment.

    The Rules of RealMUD T4C Server General

    First of all, it is important to remember that all game accounts and their contents (characters, items…) remain sole property of Dialsoft Inc. The players only have the right to access the accounts ; this right can be removed at any time for any reason or for no reason by a member of the Realmud staff. By creating an account, or buying the access rights to an account, or acquiring these rights in any other way, and logging on to the Realmud server, you agree to these terms, as well as the rest of the rules herein.

    The General rules of the Realmud T4C server are as follows :

    These rules are to be interpreted by the staff of Realmud as they see fit, and are subject to change at very short notice.

    Any decision a staff member takes is final.

    If you disagree with rules 1 and/or 2, feel free to contact either Alastor HGM or Freyia HGM in game, but be sure of your claim. They don’t like having their time wasted.

    All account information must be filled in and valid. This is to help retrieve stolen accounts.

    The 4th Coming is to be played using common sense. We are a community; keep that in mind, as there are others here to play as well as you, and each and every person is to be considered.

    Account sharing is allowed, but not supported. Any and all actions performed on a character are deemed character responsible, not by the person behind the screen, and so the character shall be punished, whether it was you behind the screen or not.

    Bashing staff is not good for your health or your account.

    Punishments a staff member gives, such as removing shouts/pages/overheads or jailing, is to be given back ONLY by that staff member. If you do not know which staff member punished you, contact a HGM. If you get teleported to jail you need to stay online until the countdown timer ends THEN you are to contact a HGM to request release DO NOT just recall.

    Bug abuse is, of course, illegal and shall lead to rather severe reprimands, as are Third Party Programs (TPPs).

    Do not advertise other servers or games in public CC's.

    Impersonating another player for causing trouble is also frowned upon, as are making names with offensive words, especially if you pretend to be that player.

    Reseraphing is possible : 100k*lvl for 1x and 2x, and 200k*lvl for 3x and 4x. Minimum level to reseraph is level 50 (do not ask for free reseraphs as a smack in the mouth usually offends)

    At the moment, VIPs are open 24/7, limited to 2 hour inside vip followed by a 1 hour in-game exhaustion. That is subject to change at any time.

    VIP Keys are obtainable by paying for more than 31 days and asking a HGM in game for keys.

    GM's identities are to remain private. If by “chance” you know the name, you are not permitted to share or divulge that information in game or on any other place.

    Name changes are 2k*lvl gold, There are to be no numbers or dashes in names / tags, except for ones which were made before this rule came into effect. Guilds are now created through a quest.

    All High Leaders and Leaders of guilds must be level 50+ IF a character is level 50+ then seraphs it is deemed acceptable for them to keep their HL or L status. Chat

    Verbal harassment of any type, including but not limited to language of a racial, sexual, explicit, swearing or offensive nature in any language or slang is not tolerated. The punishments shall range from a short reprieve of the player’s shouts to a month or more, based on gravity, history of infringements by the player, and the staff member’s discretion. Masking, as in the use of symbols to replace letters, is also frowned upon. Shouting (all caps) and spamming (constantly typing in a channel so as to block it) are not very well viewed either, and will be punished. Using a different character / account to circumvent the loss of shouts will only make matters worse. Asking people to shout for you only gets them in trouble as well.

    Instigation and/or provocation of rule breaking is frowned upon, and the Game Masters can punish this as they see fit.

    Private CC's are not moderated but if a creator of a CC asks a HGM people can and will be removed from said CC. (If there is question to the ownership of the CC then final decision will rest with the HGM)

    The CC Main is used for game related chat. The CC Chatter is the one used for mindless speeches, who’s-your-favorite-band debates, and things of this sort. CC 4Sale is used for selling/buying/trading of things. This is to enable people that aren’t interested in the debates to turn you off. Please use the English language in all public CC’s except non English speaking CC's, where the appropriate languages are to be spoken.

    Logs will be checked to reinforce these rules as needed.

    If there is debate as to what is game related, the staff will decide. Please see rules 1 and 2 of the General rules. PvP

    The back door of SH temple is no PK. The Oracle room (only the room where the NPC lives) is also no PK.

    Various events and / or raids are non-PK / rob. This is announced at the beginning and during the event, and breaking this rule leads to serious punishment.

    Excessive PKing is not allowed anywhere except in the front of the Stone Crest temple. The staff decides what excessive is, see rules 1 and 2 of the General rules. (no temple trapping at SilverSky Temple and WindHowl Temple)

    Attacking NPCs so as to make them unusable for others is not allowed.

    Dragging/Moving monster bosses such as Dark Wanderer of SH, Evil Commander(s) of VIP Islands or other bosses to other areas in order to XPK players is not permitted. Trading

    We have a secure trade system in game, use it. Trades and self mulings on the ground are not supported.

    Scamming is definitely not allowed ; and when you auction an item, the winner of the auction has to pay what he bid (with the exception of ridiculous bids, based on what the staff finds ridiculous) and he has to get the item.

    Be careful where you trade. If you trade at RST, don’t feel bad if you lose your item to a rob.

    With rule 3 in mind - Robbing someone you have called for a trade is considered a scam and will lead to punishment.

    Buying / Selling / Trading accounts is a risky business, please take utmost care when doing so, we can’t always recover lost items/characters/accounts.

    The following items cannot be robbed, taken from a death pile or dropped from the accounts or characters on which they were created. They can be traded with the character via payment. Wizard’s Bane, Cloak of the Midnight Mists, Mantle of Infinite Blessings, Cloak of the Ages, Soul of Flare. They are only obtainable through winning a “major”, or HGM event. These events are usually announced in advance. Punishments

    The punishments for breaking these rules can vary depending on the staff member and the offense.

    They range from loss of shouts/pages/overheads, jail time, exp loss, PVP rights loss, reseraphing, suspension and deletion of accounts and their content. The deletion or permanent suspension are, by nature, irreversible.

    If another punishment is deemed necessary, it shall be performed.

    If you have problems with a punishment, contact a HGM in game, but make sure it’s a valid point. Questions

    Any questions regarding these rules can be answered by a HGM in game.

    Please note that these rules are regularly updated with no notice, and it is up to you, the player, to make sure that you are aware of them.
