Hello everyone, and welcome to this month's edition of the Alora newspaper!

 

Hope you are all having a great day, enjoy reading.

 

 

1HFy851.png

 

Rule 9 and Rule 13 have received some minor changes, please acknowledge them: 

 

 

Date & time of updated rule: 16th November, 2018

 

Updated section: Rule #13.c - Ragging

 

Time of date that the update rule(s) will be put into effect: Immediately

 

Part(s) added, changed, or removed: Highlighted in YELLOW

 

Previously: 

 

• c. Ragging is prohibited in the wilderness or ::edgepvp on Alora in its entirety as it negatively affects our PvP community as a whole and debases the dignity of PvP. Alora's definition of a ragger is one who consistently goes out of their way to disrupt someone's experience in the wilderness or ::edgepvp by attacking them repeatedly (staff discretion will be used when infracting someone for ragging). All ragging reports must be reported with sufficient video proof. First offenders will serve 5 hours in jail, followed by a 24-hour ban, with an ending result of a permanent ban.

 

Updated: 

 

• c. Attacking a player with only 1 item or essentially no valuable risk with the intent to negatively effect another player's experience in the wilderness is against the rules and will not be tolerated. (ex. Using a ZGS and constantly returning to a specific area or person and harassing the player.) This rule is applied to the entirety of PvP across Alora.

 
However, certain areas of PvP will follow specific rules.  While in Edgeville and ::edgepvp, the act of griefing fights will not be allowed. (ex. Walking over players constantly or placing items such as cannons down.)
 
Pjing/Rushing is allowed; But if reported with sufficient evidence of being an on-going issue and considered harassment, it will be dealt with by staff discretion.
 

First offenders will receive a 5-hour jail followed by a 24-hour ban, increasing to a 7-day ban, and finally, a permanent ban. 

 

 

 

Date & time of updated rule: 19th November, 2018

Updated section: Rule #13.b - Scouting

Time or date that the updated rule(s) will be put into effect: Immediately

Part(s) added, changed or removed: Highlighted in YELLOW

 

Previously:

  • • b. Multi-logging in the wilderness is allowed if you have no interaction between any of your accounts. If you have one account skilling in the resource area, and another account killing people in the Revenant Caves this is OK. It is not OK, for example, to skill in the resource area and kill other players there on your alternate account. It is also not allowed to use a second account to protect your accounts in the wilderness.

Updated:

  • • b. Multi-logging in the wilderness is allowed if you have no interaction between any of your accounts. If you have one account skilling in the resource area, and another account killing people in the Revenant Caves this is OK. It is not OK, for example, to skill in the resource area and kill other players there on your alternate account. It is also not allowed to use a second account to protect your accounts in the wilderness. Scouts are also allowed to an extent, as long as they do not allow an unfair advantage over other players in the Wilderness. Firstly, scouts must be Level 3 combat and have ABSOLUTELY NO ITEMS equipped or in their inventory. Secondly, for example, if you bring a scout to the Chaos Elemental to see who is there before teleporting there, this is okay. It is not okay, however, to plant a scout outside of the Rev Caves entrance while you kill Revs so that you can see when PKers are coming.

I have decided to interview our newest Server Support Sassafras, and our most beloved member Trailer Park! I hope you enjoy hearing what they had to say.  ^_^ 

 

 

Greetings, @Sassafras.

 

 

Dante : How are you liking being a Server Support for Alora?

 

Sassafras: It's chill, it's nice to be helping solve problems behind the veil. I'm getting more exposure to how streamlined the process is, and I can't wait to gain more experience at it.

 

Dante: What is one down-side you've come across being staff on Alora?

 

Sassafras: I'll admit I'm struggling a bit with the no-AFK staff rule, but it's just something I'll adapt to. Playing two accounts while staffing is also harder than I thought!

 

Dante: What is something very simple that you find most people get wrong?

 

Sassafras: Brushing their teeth. You shouldn't be trying to saw off your teeth with the brush, just vibrate it in one small spot and repeat that throughout your whole mouth.

 

Dante: If you could live in any era before the one we're in now, when would it be and why?

 

Sassafras: Probably the late 1400's, I think the age of exploration would have been incredible to witness first-hand . Of course that's only if I wasn't one of the unlucky to die from disease/poor nutrition.

 

Dante: What is your greatest achievement?

 

Sassafras: I think my best achievement was finishing college in 4 years. I went through a rough period and almost dropped out of school my sophomore year. I had to take a full load of credits every semester until graduation to make up for it, but I finished on-time when I didn't really believe I could do it.

 

Dante: What is your closest close-call?

 

Sassafras: I was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident a couple years ago. Was riding on the back of a friend's bike with no protection (stupid), and it started wobbling like crazy at high speeds.

 

 

Dante: What is the worst purchase you've ever made?

 

Sassafras: An airsoft rifle: Spent $200 of hard-saved allowance, used it once, and moved onto other things.

 

Dante: What is your favorite pass-time (besides Alora)?

 

Sassafras: Getting really drunk and watching terrible movies. If you ever want to almost die laughing, watch some of Neil Breen's movies or "The Room". The stupider the better.

 

Dante: What is the most irritating thing someone can do?

 

Sassafras: Litter. Just don't do it, it's infuriatingly lazy. Take the extra 30 seconds and throw it away in a garbage/recycling bin. So many beautiful places around me are ruined by trash, and it could be easily avoided.

 

Dante: What is the worst thing to have a phobia of?

 

Sassafras: Snakes, they're such amazing and curious animals.

 

____________________________________

 

 

Next on our list is Trailer Park!

 

 

Greetings, @Trailer Park.

 

 

DanteHow does it feel to be the most beloved person on Alora (to me)?

 

Trailer Park: It feels neat as heck it rustles my jimmies when you shoot kissy emojis at me.

 

 

Dante: What is your favorite thing to do outside of PKing on Alora?

 

Trailer Park: When I'm not PKing you can find me helping the special needs kids of Alora.

 

Dante: What is your most memorable moment that you are willing to share?

 

Trailer Park: My most memorable moment is when me and Horror made friendship bracelets together.

 

Dante: Do you play any other games outside of Alora?

 

Trailer Park: The only other game I play is farm simulator because I was meant to plow.

 

Dante: What is the most interesting fact you have about yourself?

 

Trailer Park: I'm the most interesting person I know because of my uncontrollable drinking problem.

 

Dante: If you could meet one person IRL from Alora who would it be?

 

Trailer Park: I'd want to meet Jonttu and give him English lessons.

 

Dante: What is your dream job?

 

Trailer Park: My dream job is yelling at people for money.

 

Dante: Which movie do you wish you were living in?

 

Trailer ParkSchindler's list.

 

Dante: Which person on Alora would be the worst leader of a Country?

 

Trailer Park: Lowkey would be a terrible leader he'll set the country back like his hairline.

 

Dante: What is the highest pressure situation you've been in and how did it go?

 

Trailer Park: I had to poop once on a lift 50 storeys up with the wind shaking us I never made it and pooped myself then cried.

 

Thank you for answering these questions, Trailer Park !

 

 

Disclaimer:

Don't hesitate to send me or Dante a private message via forums/discord and I'll include them in next edition along with the answers from that staff member!
