With 'thy shall have no alts' rule gone, one question is bothering me. Is there anything that prohibits using multiple auxiliary chars at strategic spots: storages, next to daily quest sites etc. The main char will supply and restock alts, then advertise like "Selling food in any storage", "selling all daily armor in TG sto", "ask for any engineering daily help and it will be delivered on spot" etc. Now if anybody is interested in buying leather helmets, instead of appearing personally, the main char just logs in as TG storage alt, sells the helms and logs out. If somebody forgot what King Gondric wanted to place around the table -- no worries, an alt will log in sitting next to the king and sells you poisoned caltrops.

While this type of alts are not bots, strictly speaking, they are very close -- doing nothing, appearing only if a trade is agreed on between main char and a buyer or when the main char wants to restock alt's supplies. Nothing in the game rules seem to prohibit this. Now the question: will this be OK or frowned upon?

The joke came up in mod chat that having 120 alts in all the joker spawns might be char spamming, but it was a joke.  You can make however many char you want and use them how you want, BUT!  You cannot violate capped invasion rules, invance rules or bot rules.  That is the rules as I see them now.  Radu can chage them at his good pleasure.

I don't see any problem. This is only theoretical and wont happen. Hell, even if it does, i wouldn't see any problem - it just means someone is dedicated enough to selling their stock so that they are willing to not only leave big amounts of gc on their alts, but also spend the time preparing alts.


I'm more worried that the prices might crash if someone decides to mass harvest 1 harvestable with 20 alts.

Shhh, you're giving away my idea for bringing down the price of tree shrooms.
