Honor - Midkemia Online Online Help

15.5 Honor

Some actions destroy or weaken the powerful sense of being in an alternate
world. These are NOT honorable, and not looked upon kindly.

Examples of these actions are:
- taking advantage of bugs or loopholes,
- playing multiple characters at the same time,
- playing multiple characters that assisting each other in any way,
- quitting, entering the newsroom or the editor to avoid attack or theft.


A word of explanation is in order for what we refer to as "QQing", which is
quitting or going to the newsroom to avoid combat. This action is insane (or
out-of-role) and even if you are being killed by a much larger adventurer for
no reason, do not do this.

There is simply no acceptable excuse for it. You will gain a reputation as a
poor adventurer in the eyes of your peers and, perhaps even more importantly,
the Gods themselves. If you make a habit of this, you will even be punished, as
it is highly detrimental to the game's atmosphere. It is basically using an
insane/OOC method to escape an IC situation.

Of course, we do not expect you to stay logged on for long periods of time just
to prove you are not QQing from a combat situation. If you must leave, and can
evade attack or attempted attack for longer than 1 minute during a combat
situation, QQing then would not be dishonorable. HOWEVER, if you take advantage
of this to QQ constantly whenever you are attacked after evading for a minute,
this would again be dishonorable. We understand you must leave, sometimes, but
QQing repeatedly to escape combat is not honorable.
