Players may make as many characters as they like, but they may connect onl
y one at any givern time. The rule against multiplaying is
designed to put players on, as much as possible, an equal footing:
to ensure that every item or advantage gained by a character was really
gained by him or her or as a result of grouping with other players.
Where you have any doubt whether or not a paticular activity constitutes
multiplaying, ask yourself if the benifit your character is about
to enjoy could have been gained if he or she were the first
character you ever had on LegendMUD.
In it's most obvious form, 'no multiplaying' means you may not connect
two characters at once, whether those characters are grouped or not
grouped, yours or not yours, or for any other purpose. But 'no
multiplaying' also means you may not use one of your characters
for the advantage of another of your characters: you may not
get equipment with one of your characters to be given to another
of your characters (either directly, by leaving it for the other
to pick up, by giving it to another player to deliver, or by any other
means) Multiplaying also includes dropping link, not completely
renting out a character before logging in another character. If
you wish to give one away, it must be nopkenabled, and you are NOT
allowed to use that character again.
In the spirit of the rule against multiplaying, LegendMUD also asks
that no more than one person plays any given character. You may give
away a non-clanned character, but please do not permit anyone to
play one of your characters. Sharing your character password is
always a bad idea. If your character was used to cheat and deleted,
its your responsibility. Noexceptions to the rules will be granted
because a player claims that someone else was playing his or her

since Zandy and Kaige can't seem to -find- the rules, I'll post

Way I see it, you are misinterpreting the rules.
Getting a piece of equipment with your level 50 to give to your level
10 alt - whether it be directly from you, by dropping it in a room few
visit for your alt to pick up, or by handing it to a friend to give your
lowbie... That is using one alt to benefit another.
Killing a mob that is aggressive to your alt so your alt doesn't have to
deal with them... That is using one alt to benefit another.
Logging in your alt to kill someone else's alt because they pissed you
off... Doesn't benefit your first alt in any way. Your first alt isn't
getting any in-game benefit from that action. Your ego would just be
getting a good stroke for such an act of revenge. It is a benefit for the
player, not the character.

yet, if you know your alt is going to pay for another alts
actions, you'll refrain from attacking the person in question,
thus benifiting the original char.

It could very well benefit the first alt, if the second alt is better
equipped to pkill the other person.

most mobs don't bother staying aggressive after you rent out.
most people don't bother resetting their aggressiveness towards you
after you alt out :p

And why must you let the immortals handle this petty situation??
They have better things to do like plant seedlings
for the next harvest of ---SKILLTREES!---
Wastes a lot of immortal processing time when they could be
Examining the code and stuff stuff stuff
I don't see what's so hard about getting your retribution, or
forgiving and forgetting

Skilltrees...hehe...that's funny. Can I use that at my next party?

Pk Rage! kill all the mf'in non-pkillers!

I think char wipes would be a good thing, but dont wipe ALL chars
wipe the ones that get logged on enough to keep them alive, and
the ones that have been in archive for the past i dont know how long
and perhaps a limit to it, like all chars over level 40? dont get wiped
but i do understand where he is coming from, i mean ive been trying to get
a clan going for practally ever, as soon as i get enough peps to make it
i find all the clan spots are taken...
well thats what i think anyway

Just for a definition of terms...
Logging in an alt to kill another player's alt
because they upset you is called OOC.
I do believe destructive OOC stuffs is against
the rules somewhere.
