19.12 Rules for using a test server

From time to time, we set up a mirror image of the game on an experimental
server. This is to isolate and test major features to some of the underlying
framework that runs Achaea. Basically, we copy the entire game to a test server
and invite people to try and break things there. Once the test session is
complete, all data is wiped and you return to normal life in Achaea. They are
completely isolated and things that happen on the test server remain there (and
are summarily wiped at the end of the test). So, if a test is announced, feel
free to partake, generally it's a free for all there are little to no rules,
but cooperation with the test is expected.

Outline of the rules:

  1) The data/adventurer files/etc is a copy and may be slightly out of date.
Don't
     complain about this please.

  2) There are no admins watching, so please, behave. Anything that happens
     during the test is NOT a valid reason to take retribution back in Achaea
     proper.

  3) Any changes that take place during the test will be erased when the copy
     is discarded. Nothing will transfer back to Achaea.

  4) No, we won't make you a House Leader or give you uber-skills "just to
     test". Anyone asking will likely be zapped and banned from further tests.

  5) The test server is generally a much slower machine, do not complain of
     lag and things like that.
