Shard, Gameplay & Community Rules: 

 

  1. Each player is allowed 3 accounts with 5 characters per account, per IP/household, and 1 player house per account. Please contact an administrator if you have special circumstances (such as a family playing together, or roommates.) Proof will be required. See: http://forums.uooutlands.com/index.php?threads/multiple-account-households.694/
    Account sharing is not permitted. One player may only use 3 accounts total. If you are found to be linked to more than 3 accounts, all accounts are subject to be removal.
    Multi-client use is allowed, but not for PvP. This means you can have more than one account logged into Outlands at a time, but you may not seek out PvP encounters using multiple clients. Using more than one account in a PvP scenario will result in action being taken against all of your accounts.
  2. Unattended macroing is allowed, however AFK resource gathering is not allowed. 
    We have a CAPTCHA in place for resource gathering which will result in automatic jail time if failed repeatedly. Please do not macro in public areas, especially using skills with annoying sounds (music etc).
  3. You may only use our version of Orion, Razor (regular) or Steam gameplay assistants. Other permitted tools include UOAM and Ultima Mapper.
    Sallos, Veritas, speedhacks, UO Extreme, EasyUO, Gear, AssistUO, Adrenaline, RazorEnhanced, vanilla Orion or any other client than our custom release are not tolerated. Any program which allows you to gain unfair advantage over other players or the system are illegal. Players found to be using unsupported clients or other means of gameplay will be banned.
  4. Character names are unique and on a first-come/first-served basis. Please choose unoffensive, non-sexual and non-obscene character names. If you fail to do so, you will be asked to change your name, or have your name changed for you. If possible, please capitalize the first letter of your name. See NAMING GUIDELINES below.
  5. The use of unlawful, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, racially, ethnically or sexually derogatory language toward any other player or staff, including real life threats or personal accusations is not permitted. As a community with a diverse range of players, kindly speak and post without the use of vulgarity. Users who abuse our language policy ingame will receive one warning, and then will be banned, with particular emphasis placed on the use of racial and homophobic slurs.
    With particular note to the harassment or verbal assault of any staff members, we have a zero tolerance rule. There is no reason for any player to ever verbally abuse a staff member, and it is expected that you will speak to them with respect.
    Action may be taken against players who consistently create a negative atmosphere. Keep trashtalk in the correct channels: the Trash Talk forum and #trash-unmoderated in Discord. Players who continue to abuse this policy will be banned from general chat.
  6. You may not organize any guilds or groups based on any racist, sexist, anti-religious, anti-ethnic, anti-gay or any other hate-mongering philosophy. You may not partake in idolatry of any kind.
  7. Griefing & Doxxing: You will not do anything that interferes with the ability of other Outlands players to enjoy playing the game in accordance with its rules. You may not post or communicate any player’s real world personal information on any Outlands related communication channels, including 3rd party chat servers, guild discussion forums and channels, etc. It is strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: excessive verbal harassment, constant negativity, extreme/uncalled for vulgarity, intentionally trapping players in locations that force them to use the Help Stuck system to escape, using ghost scouts to monitor dungeons and specific spawns, repeated/systemic attempts to scam other players, doxxing and choosing obscene character names or guild titles.
    Doxxing is one of the most heinous acts you can commit against a fellow community member. Doxxing is defined as searching for and publishing private or identifying information about a particular individual on the Internet, typically with malicious intent. Anyone found to be doxxing players or staff of Outlands will be immediately banned from the shard.
  8. You may not impersonate any Outlands staff representative ingame, in the community, or the internet at large. Doing so will result in an immediate and irreversible ban.
  9. You may not market, promote, advertise or make any other form of solicitation on the Outlands shard or through Outlands’ various forms of communication. This includes promotion of other shards/servers/games. You are welcome to play wherever you like, but please limit your conversation regarding other shards or games to a minimum, or to the appropriate channels. Advertising other shards ingame is not allowed.
  10. You may not modify any part of the Outlands files that you are not specifically authorized to modify. You may not use the server’s files for any other purpose other than playing Outlands. If you are interested in using any of the ingame art assets (including map, art, hues, etc) please contact Owyn directly. Much of the art is not available for re-use as only Outlands has been given express permission by the authors.
  11. You will not exploit any bug you find on Outlands to gain unfair advantage in the game, and if found, will not communicate the existence of any such bug to another player. All bugs must be shared immediately with the Administrator or Developer. Failure to do so will result in an immediate and irreversible ban of all associated accounts.
  12. Selling or trading ingame houses, items, accounts, skills, labor/time or gold for real world or crypto currency is NOT ALLOWED. All associated accounts found to be trading in real life currencies will be banned from Outlands.
  13. You may not use any part of the Outlands files, map or artwork for any other use than playing on Outlands. 
    By downloading the game files you agree that they are for your personal use only on the Outlands gaming service. If you are interested in using any of the ingame art assets (including map, art, hues, etc) please contact Owyn directly.
  14. You will not attempt to interfere with, hack into, or decipher any messages to or from the server running Outlands. All access to the servers is logged. All hack attempts will be investigated and reported to the authorities. This will lead to your instant and permanent removal from the Outlands shard.
  15. You may not violate any local, state, national or international law or regulation. Outlands will not be held liable for its player’s actions, and will cooperate fully with any investigation by any law enforcement agency.

 

Discord & Forum Rules:

  1. All shard rules apply to all forms of communication.
  2. Political conversation of any type is not allowed outside of #trash-unmoderated channel, including current political events and activities.
  3. Discussion regarding other (active) shards is not allowed.

 

Outlands Character & Pet Naming Guidelines:

This policy applies to characters, pets, items and other in-game naming methods.

Please capitalize the first letter of your name.

 

You are encouraged to choose a name that represents your character in the way you want to be seen. However, we also ask that good discretion be used when choosing names for characters, guilds, titles, houses, pets, or any other item or entity in game which can be custom-named. Examples of inappropriate names include, but are not limited to:

 

  1. Any name that violates the Rules of Outlands. This includes names that are racially motivated, sexually graphic, anatomical and excretory references, hateful, defamatory, ethnically derogatory, in reference to hate groups, or any other names that would be offensive in nature including homonyms. Simply, if your name defames any demographic or is in poor taste you are likely to be disciplined.
  2. Any name that is defamatory or attempts to defame the reputation of another account holder, or a staff member of Outlands. The use of derogatory, defamatory or offensive content in conjunction with names of famous or important historical, political or religious figures. Names of modern era serial killers or anyone, or group who have committed crimes against humanity in the past 100 years, or any name that is closely connected with these acts.
  3. Any name involving a combination of words that produces an offensive result. Masked profanity or slang which denotes offensive terms. Misspellings, phonetic spellings, word combinations, or alternative spellings of any names that violate the above rules in an attempt to circumvent them.
  4. Any name that is an unintelligible combination of letters. Garbled names such as “asfkjhlafkh” and naming multiple characters with variations of a word such as “OMGgggGggGgGgg” and “OMGggGgGGg” which seek to only to gain an advantage in PvP by scrambling voice communication/targeting.  

 

An inappropriate name may subject you to disciplinary action, most likely resulting in a request to rename yourself, up to and including termination of your Outlands account for repeat offenders.

 

Overall, we encourage you to be creative and mindful of your naming ingame. This helps to foster a creative and enjoyable gaming environment. Understandably in the UO community this may be an upstream battle, but we implore you to try your best to be a mature member of our gaming community.
