Players are allowed ONE account and ONE character ONLY. Creating a second
account without permission can result in all acount being deleted. Do not give
your account information to anyone to use. You are the only person authorized to
use your account. Someone using or playing another persons account will result
in Both accounts being banned. Seeing one family member logoff and the other
logon for a few minutes then off and the first family member signing back on is
a sure indication of one person using both accounts. "I just logged on with the
other account because I needed something in their house." "I just logged on to
water their plants." Excuses such as this are not acceptable. If someone is
going to be away for an extended period of time, let Haazen know so the account
will not go inactive and be deleted. There is NO acceptable reason for someone
logging on to another players account.
If more than one account is needed for a single IP / household, you must contact
Admin to create the additional account.
You may place housing here with the housing tool provided in your bankbox.
Either custom or old style housing is available. Housing placement is permitted
where ever you are able to place it. No houses will be connected to another
house by any means. Houses may be close but the houses must be completly
seperate. You can not use the Yard Wand to bridge houses into one. Players must
be able to walk between houses. Any houses that are presently linked together
will have to be separated IMMEDIATLY.
Player killing / PVP
Nonconsensual PVP is not allowed on this shard. Two players deciding to duel may
do so outside of towns. A player deciding to look for another player out in the
world to kill is not an acceptable idea. Violaters of this rule will be punished.
Guild Player Killing
You may do this as much as you wish... as long as it is not in a town where
other players may be enjoying their playing experience. Disregard for this rule
will find your guild stone removed.
When out playing, it is requested that you do NOT loot other players corpses
unless asked to do so. Failure to comply with this courtesy will result in
action taken against you.
Littering / Unwanted items
No littering! Littering causes lag & can delete things on the shard. Trash
barrels are provided for you to toss your unwanted items in.
Cursing, Complaining, & Uncalled for behavior
This ones pretty simple.... cursing and whining isn't tolerated. If you wish you
may sit in your house until you're blue in the face cursing the fates that
lagged you to death, etc. You may be rude to the McDonalds girl that didn't add
cheese to your burger. On Paradise Found you will not be permitted to fill a
journal with chat messages that are found uncalled for. If you feel the need to
spew filth use the private messaging or party systems.
Paging system/ Problems on shard
Players that find problems or needing help from staff are asked to send PM on
chat system or place a page into the help system. If no staff is on at the time
that you need help you may be able to use the " help stuck " option if other
players can't help you. Do NOT page for staff over global chat message.
Shard is NOT hiring staff members. Players that choose to ask to be staff will
tend to wind up in jail. Just a warning. Badmouthing or degarding staff will not
be tolerated to any extent. This will result in you finding a new place to play.
Your account will be deleted with no discussion.
Decoration / Yards
Decoration is for sale on the castle roof. Certains items need to be placed by
staff, prices are listed in books near the items. Yard tools are available for
sale on the vendor stone near the bank. These allow you to place in and around
your home many different items for decoration. Yard items will not block a
players movement. A player should not have to find your gate and enter your yard
to get to a place in the world. Example: If your house is close to a water
front, access to the water front must be open to other players without them
having to enter your yard through your gate. If players ability to walk along
the shore is hindered because of yard items blocking the way, the items will be
removed. Any yard items more than 10 tiles from house will be removed. Don't ask
staff to place your yard items in places that are farther than 10 tiles from
your foundation. Do not ask staff to hue your yard items. The yard tool is
intended for yard deco. It is not intended for increasing your house size and
living space. Creating out buildings and other such structures will not be
You may place a vendor in your house or your player vendors can be placed by
staff in the Brit Castle. Rules and information are posted in the room for you
Events are run on the shard for players to participate in. Champion spawns,
Harrowers, Scavenger hunts, monster bashes, and many more ideas being worked on.
Events are held at different times and days throughout the week so that all
players may participate in them. Don't ask for events, they will be run when the
staff has time to be there for them when other shard issues won't interrupt them.
Pets / Released Animals
Players are asked to shrink their pets when in town. They are big creatures that
may be blocking recall spots or items needed for use by other players. There is
not a problem with recalling to town, accessing your bank and then recalling
back out in a short time. But be considerate to others. Pick a recall spot that
is out of the general busy spot in front of the bank. The intent of this rule is
to not fill the screen with large pets nor block highly used spots from other
players. Abandoned pets will be removed.
Healing monsters that your pet is fighting in order to gain stats and KP for
your pet will not be tolerated. When caught, your pet stats or KP will be
decreased to a value of staff discretion. Just don't do it.
* Pets tamed and released are to be killed. When an animal is tamed it ques the
spawner to create a new one. This makes more mobiles on the shard which can
cause more lag.* Repeat offenders of these rules will be dealt with.
Names with alternating caps will be changed when sighted. Players or Pets with
offensive names will be changed, Ie- racial, sexually suggestive.
Snooping, Stealing, Offensive behaviors
Snooping, stealing, and other offensive actions to other players within the
realm of Paradise Found is not permitted. If you are asked to stop and do not
you will be dealt with accordingly.
This is an acceptable behavior on Paradise Found for skill gains only, however
it is asked that you do not run macros near areas where you may interrupt other
players. If you are found to be macroing in a spot where it disrupts others game
play you will find your character moved. AFK Macroing for gold farming is not
acceptable at any time. AFK Macro Gold Farming may land you in jail or being
placed where your macro will not work. If it appears you are running a macro for
gold gain, and staff talks to you and there is no answer, action will be taken.
Gold farming is not fair to other players who work for there gold. A player
gaining millions in gold and not even at the keyboard is detriment to the shard
****It has come to the staff's attention that some players are AFK macroing in
areas to gain their dragons killpoints. This is NOT an acceptable behavior.
Anyone found to be doing this will be moved from where they were found. If this
is a repeat offense the result may be more severe than just being moved.****
Ideas / Information
On the Brit bank roof is a stone for the forums. New changes and adjustments may
be placed here for players to be informed of. Players are recommended to join
the forums and read them daily. Any ideas or information required may be sought
there by posting. This will be enforced more in coming days as it is rather
difficult to keep working on things needed when answering the same question to
multiple players over the course of the day.
If you find an exploit, bring it to staff attention immediatly. Don't use the
exploit for your benefit. What is an exploit? Anything that gives you gain
(gold, skill or stat) that is contrary to the intent of the game. Example:
Placing many items on your vendor priced at 100,000,000 causes the daily wages
of the vendor to be a negative number. Therefore you don't have to pay the
vendor. If you do this, your vendor will be deleted and you will not be allowed
another. Finding an NPC or other items selling something at a gross under cost.
So you can buy the items and sell them back at a profit. If you find something
that does not seem right that you can gain from is probably an exploit. If it is
something you keep a secret for your own gain is probable an exploit. An excuse
of "I thought it was supposed to be like that" is the mentality of a child.
Meaning you should find a place for children to play. Not here.
Jokes are things that are funny to all players involved. Something you find
funny and not found as amusing to others is not a joke. Example: There have been
a few players taking MonsterTrapBoxes from events so they can drop monsters in
the vendor mall, the newbie dungeon or in another players house. This is not a
joke. Some players are taming monsters like drakes or dragons and releasing them
in the vendor mall, newbie dungeon or another players house. It is known who is
doing this. Do these types of things and you will be toast.
When staff tells you to do something, do it. When staff tells you NOT to do
something, don't do it. By looking at recent rules, you can see that it is
impossible to write down every little thing that can be done or not. There is no
way to anticipate what players will dream up. So if staff tells you not to do
something, that makes it a rule, written or not. If you do not like what staff
tell you, trying to make the subject a public debate or trying to get more
players on your side of the issue will seal your fate here. Haazen has very
little patients for arguing policy or rules, written or common curtousy. Haazen
will not engage in debate over the right or wrong of a staff directive. If you
disagree with something staff has said or told you to do, you have the option to
PM Haazen on the forum to give your side of the issue. Haazen is not obligated
to answer or debate the issue with you. If there is something that needs to be
changed in Haazens eyes, it will change. If not, then not, whether or not he
answers your PM.
There will be no tolerance to the statement "But the rules don't say that"
Making that statment may well be your demise.
Many written rules are required for the people that are trying to get around
something. Most people just need a few guidlines like "Houses placed in Fel or
Tokuno only". The hard, fast rules like 18 and 19 are for the few that try to
get something for nothing or find humor in someone elses misfortune. Both cases,
it is a very juvenile mentality.
** Just A Note**
Haazen runs this shard to give people a place to have fun & play. The shard is
still evolving and new ideas are constantly being bandied about to improve your
playing experience here. We are here by his generousity of opening his PC to us,
show him the respect he deserves for the time he puts into this shard. Take the
time to appreciate all that he does and ALWAYS keep an eye out here... you never
know what you may find.
