Hello everyone, and welcome to this month's edition of the Alora newspaper!
Hope you are all having a great day, enjoy reading.
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
• 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.
• 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.
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
- • 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.

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.
