Combat Rules:

In PK Areas:

  • A Rivan does not attack Allies or friends, unknown players, or innocents.
  • Rivans honor and respect allies by not attacking their PVP partners, regardless of the partner's status.
  • A Rivan MAY attack enemies of Riva, whether guild, individual, or personal, in any PK situation, as long as above rules are not violated.

For enemies of Riva have lost the respect of Riva, and therefore are NOT entitled to ANY rights or respects outside those granted by official game rules.

Alternate Character Rules

  • Rivans must declare any alternate characters to the guild leadership, along with the purpose of the character, and any future plans, if applicable.
  • Alternate characters in other guilds are forbidden, unless special permission is given by leadership.
  • Rivans should not allow any other people, even family, to control their characters. Special cases should be taken to leadership first. Rivans that have other family or friends playing from the same IP should declare this as well.
  • Any rivan caught using an undeclared alternate character can be booted from the guild with no furthur consideration.

Important

These rules are enforceable. In most cases you will be warned the first time you break a rule. Some rules are grounds for instant expulsion from the guild. These include bag stealing and breaking the Combat rules.
