AFK - Aetolia Online Help
There is no strict rule when it comes to players being AFK. AFK stands for Away From Keyboard. This does not preclude the strict rules outlined in HELP TRIGGERS. Furthermore, under no circumstances should any automation while you are AFK assist yourself or others in any fashion. This includes giving information or aide, lending items, or performing activities that require or benefit from repetition, unless you are actively present the entire time. It is generally considered in your best interest to be active at your keyboard while you are playing in Aetolia, as you leave yourself open to theft, death, starvation, and various other nasty side-effects.
