Rules

PernWorld Mush is here for the enjoyment of the players and to provide a Dragonriders of Pern style theme for the players to come and enjoy themselves in the spirit of DragonRiders of Pern. Any player found intentionally making it less than enjoyable for another (ie. harassing, stalking, or debasing) will be removed from the system. The wizards of PernWorld Mush will be the final say.

PernWorld Mush is provided as a place where users may gather for the purposes of Role Playing and exploring Virtual Reality. By using your character login, you agree to the following Acceptable Use Policy:

Access to PernWorld Mush, and the computing resources required to operate PernWorld Mush, is granted on a revocable basis, and at no time is this access guaranteed.

PernWorld Mush services may be used only for lawful purposes.
Transmission or solicitation for reception of material which violates US Federal or California State Law, any Policy of the site where the MUSH operates, or state or local law of the area in which you reside is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material that is threatening, legally obscene, libelous, harassing, or violates trade-secret, patent, or copyright protections. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless PernWorld Mush, its Administrators (aka. Wizards), the owners/operators of the computing resources, Furrystuff.com, and all other parties connected with the administration of PernWorld Mush from all claims which are a result of your usage, without limitation. You agree that any traffic which originates from your character or connection is your legal responsibility.

Notwithstanding the above, you agree that should we be found liable in a court of law for any action or lack of action related to your use of PernWorld Mush our liability is limited to $0.00.

ECPA NOTICE: We reserve the right to monitor any and all communications through or with PernWorld Mush computing facilities. You agree that PernWorld Mush facilities are NOT to be considered a secure communications medium for the purposes of the ECPA, and that no expectation of privacy is afforded. Be aware that all commands and communications on this mush can be logged by the system itself and in a case of system tampering or player harrassment the system log may be accessed in order to determine fault and further action.
Access to PernWorld Mush may be denied for any reason deemed appropriate by the Administrators (aka. Wizards), including but not limited to: Using the system to transmit Real Life threats of harm to another player; harassment of another player or character; attempting to crash or corrupt the database or computing resources of the MUSH.

Violation of any of the terms and conditions of service may result in any or all of the following:

  • Suspension of access to the Mush and its computing resources for a time to be determined by the administrators.
  • Removal of your character and termination of access to the MUSH and its computing resources without prior notice.
  • Notification of your site and/or system administrators.
  • Notification of civil and/or law enforcement authorities.
  1. Don't OOCly harrass other players. This also means don't drag fights to this Mush from other MUDs, Mushes, Mucks, etc. Don't drag politics here either.
  2. Don't complain to a wizard about the content of another player's role-playing. IC is IC and not a wizard problem. If you are offended by the RP in the room, then leave the room..If others you were with are also offended, they can certainly go somewhere else to RP with you to. Like a television, you have the right to change the channel, but not to bomb the studio. :) If the situation is OOC and the person is just doing it to spam people, then it becomes a wizard problem.
  3. You may NOT kill any character, puppet or NPC without permission of the owner of said character. This would be 'moving' or 'rping' someone else's character and is not allowed without the permission of the one who 'owns' the character.. Please remember this when playing villians. (news renegade)
  4. You may not have more then one character at a time that is a WeyrLeader/WeyrWoman (see +help metallic) - please note this includes the position of WeyrLord/Lady, CraftMaster of a Major Craft or Lord/Lady Holder of a Major Hold. If you do end up in a situation with more than 1 of each position, you may give one of the characters to another player OR assign the position to someone else. It is possible to have one of each; ie. One Lord or Lady Holder, one CM, and one leader of either Weyr or Weyrhold. It is also possible to have one Gold and one Bronzerider (or 2 bronzeriders and NO golds). However, this is NOT advised unless you have enough time to be active in more then one 'area' at once. You may not run both leaders in a single area and rider may not have both a more than one of WL, WW, or Weyrlord at the same time. Someone with more then one gold rider character MUST retire one of them or give it to another player.

Anne McCaffrey's Rules for fanish Pern activities.

  1. NEVER use any of Anne's characters from her books in your *stories or as characters on roleplaying internet games and Muds, except in passing remarks. They can't appear on stage nor can their opinions, unless already stated in the novels, be used.
  2. Likewise, NEVER use Benden Weyr for anything other than 'in passing' remarks Anne has declared that off-limits to all fans, even for just visiting.
  3. Don't use/abuse other peoples persona or characters without permission. That means no involving unwilling people in tinyplots to. Players have the right to walk away from any roleplay they are not comfortable with. Harassment of players is not tolerated.
  4. Dragons are considered to be restrained by their golds to avoid time jumping. If a dragon times it in your stories, then be prepared for your Weyrwoman to deal out punishment.
  5. Dragons and firelizards are only allowed in the following colors: Gold, bronze, brown, blue and green. No other colors are permitted. Golds and greens are female and bronzes, browns and blues are males. No female character may be the rider of a bronze dragon and no male character may be the rider of a gold dragon. Firelizards on the other hand don't care what gender your character is.
  6. Content of *stories or tinyplots should be acceptable for readers under 18. This applies to all public areas on a Mud, but doesn't apply to what people do in private. The Mush and its admin will not be responsible for the content of roleplay in private areas.

*No Pern stories may be published on any electronic forum. Songs and poem are okay however.
