CHAPTER 1
STANDARDS

This constitution is publicized under the permission of the Realm Lord William DeWinter, being the maximum Law in the great Realm of Avalon, the role players and the visitors are forced to respect this law. Failure to comply by any citizen will result in punishment.


PRINCIPAL LAWS

The citizens of Avalon recognize the Realm Lord and SIM-Owner William DeWinter.

  • All citizens of Avalon are forced to be kind to other citizens, no matter kind of race, color, avatar or origin. No citizen may cause harm to any other, including but not limited to verbal abuse, demeaning or derogatory behavior, and rudeness. Harm does not include being "killed" on the Avalon HUD by traps, quests, or any other mechanic for the intent of role playing, as this mechanic is simply for role play and not to cause lasting harm.

  • Do not change or delete objects without the explicit permission of the Lord.

  • Removing scripts from quest items, especially weapons or shields and using them into other weapons, shields or other items, is a serious act against the constitution and will result, without warning, in immediate exile* from Avalon and a ban from the group. In rare, exceptional cases, the Lord may give a custom quest item, weapon or a shield as a present to a chosen resident.

  • The citizens of Avalon are expected to follow the instructions of the Realm Lord or a designated official.
  • The Lord may choose Knights to help him to enforce the law on Avalon.
  • This law recognizes the citizens of Avalon as every role player who belongs to the group "Order of Avalon". The role player can use every kind of medieval character, like knights, elves, dragons, nekos, vampires, werewolves, wizards, fairies, angels, dwarves; but not one can use any kind of power without the permission of the honorable Lord.
  • This law recognizes the visitors of Avalon as every person who comes to the land without being part of the group; every citizen is forced to respect them because they are possible citizens of Avalon. Visitors are expected to respect the principal rules of Avalon and its other residents.

 

CHAPTER 2
CITIZENS AND VISITORS

Abuse and Rudeness
  • The harmony of Avalon is the most important. One cannot be rude to or abuse other citizens, or visitors, drama is forbidden in Avalon. Drama will be strictly persecuted, which may result in exile* from Avalon (see chapter 5 - Punishment).

  • In case of a conflict, abuse or rudeness between visitors or residents

    1. they are obliged to resolve the conflict personally, without involving the public or causing drama.
    2. If the conflict cannot be resolved personally, the resident or visitor may file a report to LindenLabs, to have them resolve the case.
    3. If the conflict cannot be resolved by LindenLabs, the last option remaining is to avoid the other resident or visitor, or to stay away from the sim.
    4. Causing public drama will result in exile*, possibly for each of the involved residents or visitors.

 

  • The Lord of Avalon does NOT DEAL PERSONALLY with conflicts between residents or visitors, nor will he respond to such notes or messages.
  • Spam is forbidden in Avalon, including but not limited to group invitations, spam in group or local chat. Spammers will be exiled* from Avalon and banned from the group.
  • Usage of the Avalon HUD is required to complete quests on the realm. Failure to use the HUD can and will result in ejection without the ability to return to certain areas of Avalon. Usage of other combat systems must first be approved by the Lord.

  • Avalon is a medieval SIM; gun shots, light swords, bombs, cages or vehicles don't exist. Usage of any modern or non-medieval items is prohibited. People may wield for their own enjoyment medieval weapons only. This does not apply for the dragon encounter.
  • Residents are forbidden from wearing tags/titles from other groups that impersonate, attempt to impersonate, or otherwise could be construed to be official Realm of Avalon tags/titles while in the Realm. An exception may be granted by the Lord to selected residents for the duration of special events.

  • Questers and first time slayers are to be given priority entrance into the Dragon's Lair by any and all Dragonslayers present. The needs of a quester, or a first time slayer, outweigh the needs of any Dragonslayer of Avalon. All Dragonslayers present are obliged to remind others of this, and all Dragonslayers are forced to comply with this ruling.

 

Dress Code
  • Medieval clothing suitable for this realm is required by all citizens, of any race, gender, and other such distinguishable features. More information about the dress code can be found on boards at the Catacombs and Keep bridge. Failure to comply with the dress code will result in ejection from Avalon. Repeated failures can result in exile* from Avalon.

  • Any kind of nudity is forbidden in Avalon, the use of sex animation, sex balls animators or any kind of sex HUD is forbidden too; failure to comply with this law will result in exile* from Avalon.

  • Full avatars do not have to wear clothes, such as dragons, where applicable, not allowing the exposure of genitalia.

  • Dress code requirements do not apply only in the market of Avalon, because foreign people come to Avalon just with the purpose of shopping.

  • The Lord may teleport a user home for excessive script usage. All citizens are obliged to reduce their script usage during their visits on Avalon to ensure a low lag experience for all.

 

CHAPTER 3
GOVERNMENT AND AUTHORITY

Discretionary Power

  • The authority is owned by the Lord alone.

  • In necessary case only the honorable Lord can break the law.

  • A Shieldmaiden may be chosen and named by the honorable Lord of Avalon. She is a personal assistant and adviser to the Lord. Her competences are determined by the Lord himself and are not to be questioned by anyone.

  • The Lord may designate Knights, to enforce the law on Avalon. As each rank, the Knight rank is not guaranteed and may be removed by the Lord without notification or explanation.

  • The honorable Lord can designate citizens to help in the government administration.

  • Any status or title within the Avalon groups is not a permanent guaranteed position. If it is so decided by the Lord that one person should lose his or her position, the title will be renounced.

  • Shieldmaidens or Knights may change the tags of other citizens according to the quest results, or type of citizen. For example, the title "Fae of Avalon" may be designated to a Fae within the realm, and "Avalon Dragonslayer" may be designated to a player whom has beaten the Catacombs and slain the dragon.

 

CHAPTER 4
QUESTS

The quests of Avalon have their own rules, but is important that every citizen is forced to respect this constitution so the principal rules in every quest are:

  • The rights of another citizen named in this law are the most important.

  • No flying.

  • The use of artifacts, tools or special HUD to make the quests easier are forbidden and will result in exile* from the realm.

  • It's forbidden to help another citizen get the items of the quests by rushing them ahead using your own items; that is considered "cheating" under the laws of this constitution, however, citizens can complete quests together in small groups.

  • In case of confusion of the rules of every quest, this law will prevail on all the quest rules.

EVENTS

Hosting events on Avalon require the permission of the Honorable Lord, regardless if the event is hosted by a staff member, a resident or a visitor.

 

CHAPTER 5
PUNISHMENT

The citizen who breaks the law of Avalon could be sanctioned or punished, according to the gravity of the act that could be:

  • An official warning and ejecting; this sanction is only in case of infringement of the law the first time.

  • Exile* for 2 weeks, this punishment can be used after a warning or in a more severe law infringement as decided at the discretion of the Lord of Avalon.

  • Eternal exile* of Avalon, consequently of the gravity of the act. Permanent exile is only used by the Lord of Avalon.

  • For a citizen, who has been exiled for two weeks there will be no second warning necessary before a permanent exile will occur.

  • Eternal Exile may be granted without the required warning or temporary exile for serious offenders by the Lord.

The Lord of Avalon has the authority to exonerate the citizen of any kind of sanction or punishment, and sanction with exile*.

The Lord may designate officials, to enforce the punishment.

 

CHAPTER 6
EXCEPTIONS

The citizen can fly only in case of use a special dragon mount earned in Avalon; it is understandable that sometimes on arrival to Avalon a citizen flies for a moment, so the citizen is forced to land immediately.
