[ rules ]
DUMII is not really a computer game - it is a social game. The rules are
here so that you compare yourself with others in a fair way. This means
that cheating will not just be a quick way to gain points, money or
other material things, it will also make you a liar every time someone
admires your achievements.
As always, ignorance of the rules is not an excuse so you better
read and remember them.
1 The most important rule of all is:
Remember that there is a real human being behind every character! It
is important to consider other people's feelings when you are interacting
with them. Do not let your own real life emotions cause you to act
foolishly or irresponsibly within the game.
2 You are 100% responsible for your characters. If someone gets hold of
your password and does nasty things, YOU will be held responsible.
Put an effort in coming up with good passwords that are hard to figure
out and change them often to avoid your characters getting hacked.
3 You are NOT allowed to play with a character that does not belong to
you. That includes trying to figure out someone's password, even if you
do not intend to play with the character.
4 You are NOT allowed to cooperate with your own characters in any way.
You cannot do anything with one character that will benefit one of your
other characters. You are also not allowed to be logged on with more
than one character at a time.
5 It is forbidden to use macros and triggers that benefit your character
in relation to other players. Do NOT use triggers that give your
character an unfair advantage in fighting or threatening situations.
6 Do NOT use other characters to revenge something that was done to
another character of yours. Keep your characters separate in every aspect.
7 Do NOT kill others for real life reasons. Keep DUMII and real life
8 Although player killing is allowed, if it is excessive or without
good reason, it can lead to punishment of your player-killing
character. Do not kill other players without good reason, and do
not repeatedly kill the same player or annihilate someone who is of
a much lower level than you. Duels or fights that are stemmed in
roleplaying are not discouraged, but senseless or repeated player
killings will be appropriately punished, because they lead only to a
negative atmosphere within the game.
9 Quests are sacred. You are not allowed to cooperate with another player
when solving quests. Quests are in all cases to be done alone. This
applies in real life as well. Do not have other players peeking over
your shoulder when you quest.
10 Consider quests the national secrets of DUMII.
You may NOT share any information about a quest with another player.
The only hint you are allowed to give is the general direction from
Centre of World, e.g. North, West or North-east. Further hints can
only be obtained from Wizards.
11 You are obligated to do your very best to avoid receiving knowledge
about quests in an illegal manner. If you meet a person who wants to
give you information about a quest, say 'NO'.
12 You are not allowed to gather points for other players. You are however
allowed to help a player get equipment that he/she can personalise
and you can go out and explore the world together (but not the
level quests, spell quests or other important mini-quests, of course).
13 Collecting goins with one of your characters to give to another is not
allowed. You can, however, help other players collect goins, and can loan
them goins as well. These loans are expected to be paid back at a later
date. Note that these rules also apply to transfers at the bank.
14 Guest is for the use of new players wanting to have a look around.
It is strongly encouraged that you create a real character as soon as
possible, so that other new players get a chance to use Guest. If you
have other characters, you are not allowed to use Guest under any
circumstances (unless it is, for some reason, impossible to log in with
all your real characters).
15 You are obligated to report any cheating you encounter to the admins.
16 Certain rules also exist concerning the language in DUMII; read them.
17 You are obligated to report any bugs that you find without trying
to exploit them.
18 Sexual harassment is frowned upon, and can lead to punishment,
depending on the severity of the case in question.
19 Roleplaying is to be adhered to at all times in public. Only in private
conversations, away from public places, may you have real life
discussions, if it is really necessary. If another player should enter
the room you are in, thus making that room 'public', you are obliged to
begin roleplaying for that player's benefit. Remember that DUMII is not
a chat. There are other means of communication besides a fantasy RPG.
Breaking any of the above rules will lead to a proper punishment of the
Severe cheating, for example giving another player a step-by-step guide
on how to solve a quest, will probably lead to banning.
Rumour has it that known cheaters carry a ball and chain around their
It is not a right to play DUMII; it is a privilege.
