Help: Player killing
--== Player Killing and PvP rules of BatMUD ==--
Last edited: Sun March 30 2008 by Gore
These rules apply to Player versus Player (PvP) interaction
in general, and is not limited only to cases where either of
the player characters dies. Examples of cases where these
rules apply are: killing another player, destructing gear
from another player, casting harmful/annoying spells on
another player, attacking another players ship etc.
Player killing (PK):
You are allowed to kill another player if there is a true
reason behind it. A stupid reason, like someone is wearing
a hat you don't like, is not a true reason. Whether a reason
is good or not is decided in the end by an archwizard. Use
your common sense. For example: It is not a valid reason to
kill an other player just because he is ignoring you. Another
example: Sometimes, you may need a certain location "clear" of
any other players; you are required to show some sensibility
by asking the others to leave first, before using excessive
force in their removal. (There's enough examples, figure them
out don't be ignorant.)
Mass murdering, random kills and repeated kills will result
in your removal or banishment. The basic guideline is that
you are not allowed to ruin someone's mud life; sure there
are times of war, but there is a fine line when it becomes
just plain mean harassment.
All ships are by default potential and legitimate targets
of PvP actions. Repetedly attacking the same player's ship
over and over might constitute harrassment (depending on
the justification for the action), which is not allowed.
Getting killed / harassed:
If you are getting killed multiple times or being threatened
by someone (or a group of players) without the opposing party
having a clear reason for it, report it to your nearest
archwizard. You may also send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org about
your situation, if needed. We do listen to cases in which
the player's gaming experience is getting ruined and deal
with the matter at hand. Be clear and send a proper explanation
of the situation to us about what is happening (and why).
If a wizard (of levels 20 to 199) zaps you or gets you killed,
inform an archwizard and the case will be dealt with harsh
justice (usually removal). Wizards are generally not allowed
to meddle with mortals; if a wizard constantly pesters you with
such as stuns, changes your character info or abuses
controllable events against you, report it to an archwizard
(you may use e-mail) and it will be dealt with.
But remember, sometimes a honest kill may teach you the spirit
of the mud, to respect your superiors and to bow humbly before
their wisdom of beating the bad-seeds out of you!
Good to know:
Do NOT demand justice or whine UNLESS you have a clear case of
"one-way" abusement to present. Because; in case you have
already retaliated (and possibly sent out threats of your own)
or had your friends kill your killer - you're mainly on your
own in a warfare situation. We will not babysit you, be ready
to face the consequences of your own actions.
