discretion of GMs
If you copy somoene elses name in a way that it appears to be them. Whom so ever had the name 1st has rights to it and you MUST change the name you created OR it may be deleted. If you use this name to impersonate the original player in a deflamitory way the entire account may be banned.

Rule 6

Loot stealing is an issue however there is in place a moment in the game when an item dropped is yours to pick up, if you do not pick it up during that time the system makes it available for others to pick up. Do not complain if you do not pick up your own drops.

Rule 7

Abusive /racist comments in world chat/ all
chat will result in an immediate chat ban
for the perpetrator also Gms may take it further at their discretion

Rule 8

PK – Update to Rule 8 of Game rules.

As the server now has a BLUE NAME option, if you do not want to participate in PVP/PK then please go blue name. If you are White name then it means you are open for PK/PVP, GMS will not step in if you are PKd while white named.
PK is allowed every where that it is possible to PK, EXCEPT WHEN GMS SAY OTHER WISE for instance during PUBLIC EVENTS like Celestial Tigers or Archosaur invasion.

Rule 9

Pack farming is NOT ALLOWED, if you are found to have mearly created characters to exploit the free packs system your character will be banned for 1 second to remove it from game and interupt the time. Your character name and IP will be recorded and if you repeatedly offend GMs may take further action. Deletion of packs farmed or deletion of character entirely ( at Hermods discretion).

Rule 10

TW - ALL GUILDS wishing to enter onto the Territory War map MUST apply in the Territory War Applications section of this forum. Your guild should have a MINIMUM of Leader, Director and Marchals (all 4) positions filled by NON ALT CHARACTERS ( MAINS ). You must await GM approval BEFORE you enter on to the map. If you fail to do this then GMs have the freedom to enter the map and destroy players with GM powers.

Rule 11

"Kill Steal" or KS,
Hermods definition of KS
"when you hit a monster / boss and take LESS than 50% of its HP, then someone else hits the same monster / boss and takes the remainder of its HP or a majority (50% or more) thus they get the kill i.e. the Exp Sp and drops. It is impossible therefor to KS a 1 hit monster / boss"
Rule - KS on bosses is not allowed UNLESS the attacking party is WHITE NAMED to allow the defender to counter you.
Spot stealing - dropping into a spot where someone is already killing 1 hit mobs, this also is not allowed again UNLESS both parties are WHITE NAME and then wish to either defend themselves or show they are open for the monster to be defended.
If you are in the spot 1st then you need not be white name.
If someone is BLUE name farming then they are showing they wish to "be alone" DO NOT try to take thier spot, you will be seen as an agressor by GMs and either moved or banned for a short while. (At GMs discression).

Rule 12

Secret Letters

When you hand in a Secret letter at either DWP or 1K you get 100 Reputation and an invasion will begin in that location. DO NOT SPAM these letters at the NPC just to get the rep. If you are found doing it then ALL Secret letters in your inventory and bank will be DELETED. You may also be banned for a short period at GMs discretion.

Rule 13

we dont do 13's

Rule 14

PWR Blessings remain BANNED FROM TW & NW UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, if you are found inside TW or NW with a PWR Blessing equipt or in your inventory then IT WILL BE DELETED and you may also be banned for a period at GMs discretion.

Rule 15

TW and NW Alts
TW - You may NOT have an active TW alt in an OFFICER position in more than ONE guild.
NW - Do not enter as a team of more than 3 people, once inside you may add more to your team.

Rule 17

Provocation
If you provoke an argument in world chat or public open chat then you are as guilty as anyone who replies in an agressive way or uses foul language in a reply. You may be muted or banned as much as the person you provoke. Think before you speak!!

Rule 18

Any attempt to cheat the Vote for cubi system will be found and when we find you your characters/ account may be perma banned or deleted at Hermods discression. DO NOT TRY IT.

Playing PWR can seriously effect your mental health, running it certainly does.

Ruke 11 update

When GRinding in an invasion at either 1k OR DWP, if you go AFK restrict your Auto-culti to no more area than 20. If you range into other people YOU WILL BE MOVED.
When grinding at 1k :- the invasion on the North side and the one on the South side are BOTH 2 person spots.

1k and DWP I find it innapropriate that people over level 100 STILL use 1k or DWP, I EXPECT you to move on to other higher level areas and leave the world map invasions for lower levels. Presently this is a REQUEST - don't make me make it a rule.
If ANYONE abuses this the invasion will be dissabled.

Rule 8 Update
If you are in a squad in ANY INSTANCE where if you leave squad you can then PK blue named peoeple who were in squad with you then you will recieve a minimum of a 1 hour bann, increased at GM discretion.

The request for ppl over lvl 100 to avoid 1k or DWP is now relaxed HOWEVER I ask you all, BE NICE and SHARE. There is more than enough room now, PWI only have normal size 1k and DWP invasion but have thousands more players on each server then us and THEY SEEM TO COPE!!

I would like to point out that rule 5 needs some serious clarification.

Rule 5

Any pms/private chats or personal
information,between players
unless agreed with all parties involved that
are shown in public chats without the
agreement of all parties involved will be in
breach of privacy and liable to subject you
to a ban i.e. a chat ban for a duration at the
discretion of GMs

This is basically giving a person grounds to sue someone for libel by your rules for SSing what they say even if it was to report them to a GM. Not that it would happen but still.

Another problem I am having is with the rule about language. You may want to be more specific. I agree that language should be kept decent, however there is a slight problem when trying to enforce this rule when people are using language that is not censored by the game. If you want people to further watch their language I would suggest adding more censors. While there may be younger people playing this game, it is rather offensive for people to be told to watch their language when they not only didn't try to get around the censor but used words that were in no way censored.

I am wondering how these rules are going to be enforced...seems that chat muting people is a go to, but given how often and how continuous drama is on World Chat as of lately I am questioning if this is enough. I wonder why repeat offenders aren't given increasingly stronger punishment. The drama is basically being allowed and constantly escalating. A GM being online to just say "enough" but not actually doing anything expect muting the same people that always cause the problems is hardly enforcing the rules.

Firstly under UK law where the server is based ie Manchester N England, libel is a civil offence not a criminal 1. It would be hard to pursue a case to sue a virtual character, with no IP address, or real life information, which the server would have no enforced obligation to provide said info, under the data protection act, which is rigidly enforced here in the UK. Unlike in the USA where an attorney can subpoena a witness, in the Uk its called a witness summons, and the party seeking the Witness Summons should pay or offer to pay a reasonable sum to cover the witness’ travel to and from the Court together with a sum representing compensation for the witness’ loss of time suffered as a result of him having to attend the Court. This of course would be in the court where the complaint was filed. So if in say the USA, Hermod could enjoy his free holiday. Any case to sue for libel, would be dead in the water before it even started, purely because the UK's data protection law would prevent any other country forcing disclosure of identity of any player. So good luck to anyone who tries lol. Players need to remember its where the server is based that a law is applicable, contrary to what the FBI seems to think.... Plus this is a game so treat it as such.
