Point Release 9 - December 5th 2019[edit | edit source]

What’s New[edit | edit source]

Ruleset Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Removed guarded zones outside of towns.
  • New criminal system replaces karma system:
    • Engaging in a negative action will result in a player being issued with the criminal flag, represented by a grey name.
    • Players who murder or assist in the murder of an innocent player are issued a murder count.
    • Players with a murder count of >= 5 will become Murderers, represented by a red name.
    • Individual murder counts require 24 hours of game time in order to decay.
    • Criminal timer is refreshed when conflict is advanced against a criminal by a player.
    • Players will turn red immediately when they hit 5 murders instead of waiting for the criminal timer.
    • After receiving a murder count, players will have an effect called “On the Run” prohibiting any fast travel for 10 minutes, applies to any criminal action.
  • Skill loss:
    • On death, players with a positive number of murder counts, a criminal, or murderer flag will experience skill loss.
    • Criminals and blues with murder counts will experience skill loss of between 0.1 to 0.5 skill points from a single skill.
    • Murderers experience stat loss of between 2.5 to 5.0 skill points from a number of skills determined by their murder counts:
      • 0 to 9 = 1 Skill
      • 10 to 19 = 2 Skills
      • 20 to 29 = 3 Skills
      • 30 to 39 = 4 Skills
      • 40+ = 5 Skills
    • Skill loss does not affect the skill’s Maximum Level Attained, this means that retrained skills will gain from the Retrain Skill Bonus (Multiplier of 3).
    • Skill loss is reverted when the afflicted players corpse is resurrected or upon returning to their own corpse.
    • The corpses of murderers and criminals can have their heads removed by other players, forcing the deceased player to release into a ghost.

    • Severed heads may be consumed by their original owner, returning the associated stat loss skills.
    • Severed heads will rot after 10 hours if not turned in or consumed. A rotten head is strictly ornamental and has no further use.
