15.8 Triggers and Automation

(See also HELP AFK, HELP TIMEOUT, and HELP IC)

Client Triggers
---------------
If you are looking for help creating MUD Client triggers (or aliases, etc.), see HELP CLIENTS.


Triggers
--------
Triggers and automation are allowed in most cases as long as they are not used 
for gaining gold or experience. Discussing triggers is another matter worthy of attention.


Triggers and Roleplay
---------------------
Triggers, although obviously a real element for players, are not a real element 
for ADVENTURERS in Midkemia. Sure, you may have to find ways to talk about them, 
and it is possible, if done discreetly. Keep such talk private whenever 
possible, rather than on public channels. If you must use public channels, refer 
to the general idea of reflexes and then please move quickly to private 
discussion. Then you will help us maintain an IC (in character: see HELP IC) 
atmosphere.


What is not allowed?
--------------------
Auto questing, auto bashing, (and auto pretty much everything else). This is any 
activity:
  1) that you automate via triggers, and
  2) that you use to gain gold or experience.

Basically, if you can walk away from your computer and your character will still 
play without you, there's a problem.

Auto anything is a very serious violation of our rules punishable by permanent 
destruction or permanent shrubbing of the relevant adventurer.

Just don't do it! Auto bash, auto ANYTHING and you can kiss your adventurer 
goodbye forever.
