+ Rumors spread that a man has died under strange circumstances at the Natri'Evar hospital. Found frozen in his bed, the staff report no explanation for or disturbances leading to his death other than a lingering duskiness in the room.​

wait can I have one of my ic's hire the other one for this thing, or is that metagaming?
I believe that is meta, but don't pin me on it.
If you want your character to go and he's somewhat known to be a hired sword, if you RP with my char Khorug, he has been interested in sending someone in his name but so far has only been asking Dwarves. Not sure if making this arrangement to RP with you is meta as well xD

You can arrange RP, yes, but you cannot hire your own character, as that falls into alt abuse. Your alt cannot benefit your main and vice versa.

Rules for Using Your Alt Account
{ Using Your Alt Account }

It's fun to have an alt account, on a slow day you can hang out with people that your main or other accounts cannot or have them interact with each other (As many staff do on a regular basis-).

While having alt characters can be fun, it can veer into the realm of metagaming if a player isn't careful. Below are some guidelines for alt characters and rules for interactions. It is important to read this section in its entirety if you frequently use alt accounts.

You are free to Roleplay with others with your alts and main of course, however, if your alts communicate in a manner that is unusual for both of them, as explained below, it is completely unreasonable for a good Main to speak to your Alt if they are evil, or do things against your Main accounts beliefs. Does your main frequently talk or hang out with people like your alt? No? Then stop it.

Metagaming is knowing something in RP that you have learned about in an OOC manner. If your Alt knows something that you want your main to know, it might seem convenient to just use your alt to bring that information to your main... but this is metagaming. Using your alt to get something like information about someone, a location, events, is in the end, metagaming.

If your alt was someone else, think about it, the chances of you knowing is very low.

So yes, starting today this will become a rule in the King's Law. You can use your Alt to give yourself something to do, have fun, but you cannot use them to gain special items or things your main cannot access. (Vice versa applies, Main's cannot gain things for Alts, and for people who needs specifics: Alts cannot get things for Alts.)

Especially if one is evil and the other is good. Come on.

You cannot use your Alts to:


  • Get revenge on someone for killing your character.
  • Attack someone for being an enemy to your Alt. It's your main that has the enemy, not your alt (or vice versa)
  • Stealing an item that your main knows is important. Your alt would have no idea.
  • Using your Alt to make your main more powerful by gathering them weapons/enemies or learning skills/things they are unable to. (If your main needs an archer/hunter/spy, you can't create one to serve that purpose.)
  • Using an alt to heal a main or vice versa is equally considered to be abuse of our multiple characters policy.
Anyway, above is an example list of Meta-gaming. This can apply in many terms but please think before you do something with an Alt. Are you just doing it to benefit yourself? What would your Alt character really think/decide to do.
The official rules might help to shed light
