Who needs 'em anyway?

YOU do.

Laid out in this section are rules and general policies of HOTL that have been made for various reasons. The all-important thing to remember when MUDding is that you're playing a game, and all games have rules. Show us a game without rules and we'll show you a light-footed ogre.

Some rules may seem to impose a limit on your personal freedom. It's a never-ending battle for us to balance individual wants and group needs. But hey, don't you wish there were rules to protect yourself when you feel you've been wronged? Rules set out the prescribed method of dealing with a particular problem and help establish some kind of order.

Granted, there are times when we need to question the rules. Such freak situations should be few and far between (we hope). So, we may consider these things on a case-by-case basis: genuine human errors (eg. typos, miscommunication), counter evidence, and other special circumstances.

Of course, you should have amassed all available evidence when you try to accuse someone of doing something. And never, never fail to get your facts correct before bringing it up, unless you want to appear a fool.

It is your duty as a player to read and abide by the rules of the game. Ignorance is no longer an excuse.
