*BEWARE* the Rules in Essex have Changed! Although stealing is now allowed, the act of stealing may flag you as a criminal, allowing anyone to legally attack & loot you. Stealing from any player who has not reached the level of Elder is ILLEGAL!! And will result in that player being JAILED!! Repeat offenders will be BANNED!! If you enter Essex after recently committing a criminal act and are flagged as Gray, you are vulnerable to attack and can be LEGALLY LOOTED!! If you attack another Blue player, you will get guardwhacked!! Red players can be attacked at all times with no chance of being flagged as a criminal or getting guardwhacked. PKing in champs or certain dungeons remains ILLEGAL!!
Congratulations to KING TRAMUS!! May his reign be a long one. The king is looking for leaders to govern the 6 major cities of Akara. Elections are being held to select the people most eager and well qualified to govern. These leaders will have the Title of Duke or Duchess of the particular city and receive a Special Cloak to designate their city and status. After the Dukes have been chosen, more info on special events will be given. An election will be held each week. GOOD LUCK to EVERYONE!!
