Box Office Event Guidelines
Please don't spoil the event for others. Box Office events are often run
several times to allow as many people as possible to enjoy it, and giving away
information about the event can decrease their enjoyment of the event when their
turn comes around. Also, please do not broadcast puzzle solutions or other spoilers
over general means of communication, such as an in-game communication network
(the amunet, gwethnet, PBRs), or the public Forums. Be courteous. Don't reveal
Event participants who are being disruptive may be removed from the event.
Examples of disruptive behavior are: Being extremely out-of-character;
making disparaging comments about the event or the people involved, or actively
thwarting the progress of other participants. Disruptive behavior can also be
caused by players who have participated in an event before, and therefore already
know the puzzle solutions, or by players who have received the solutions from
other participants, and thereby lessen the enjoyment of other players who wish
to discover the solutions for themselves. Determination of what is and is not
disruptive behavior, and/or removal of an event participant, is entirely at
the discretion of the GameMaster running the event.
Some events can be inherently dangerous! The dangers in some events
are usually over and above the normal dangers to your character while playing
GemStone IV. This could mean the death of your character, the loss of
inventory, the threat of kidnapping or capture, and many other possibilities.
You do have the option of leaving an event, by using REPORT from the event area
to ask the GameMasters to remove you. However, events which have been paid for
in advance will not be refunded in this event.
Awards are not guaranteed. Awards are frequently given out at the end
of events. There is no guarantee, however, that a player's participation in
an event will guarantee an award. Even though a player may have contributed
to the solution of a puzzle, or roleplayed well, his or her actions at those
times may not be monitored. Simutronics is not required to monitor the behavior
of all event participants.
