Law System

An entire law system is built into Valhalla. All players and all monsters belonging to any major cities, castles and villages are protected by the law. You are not allowed to kill or steal from people which are protected, unless they are caught in the act of stealing or killing PROTECTED characters.

If you witness a crime you can accuse the person which committed the crime at the city guard Captain. The Captain is usually located at the city guard headquarters. If a protected NPC witness a crime it will walk to the captain and accuse the offender.

If you have committed a certain number of crimes the guards may attempt to arrest you. Once they handcuff you it is possible to attempt an escape by typing 'break' to attempt breaking the handcuffs.

If you have committed several crimes after having been declared 'wanted' you will be 'wanted dead or alive'. This means that you are no longer protected by the law system. At this point there will be a reward on your head, offering both money and experience for your death. All guards attack on sight. Players are allowed to kill you.

Once in jail you have to wait for some pretty strong friends to free you or for a long time to pass.

Your misdeeds are forgotten if you get killed or when you have served your jail sentence. But beware *any* crime reported after being cleared will make you a criminal instantly.
