We hope you enjoined the period of special offers and most likely something similar will be offered when Avalon celebrates its TWENTY-FIFTH year in 2014 through 2015.
Type CHARGES to review current subscription and procurement fees. In the meantime, for lesson purchasing see HELP PROCURE for information on rapid lesson purchase, HELP CREDITS and HELP SUBSCRIPTIONS and HELP PAYING for an overview of subscription and credit purchase, and HELP STORE for details of the Avalon store where you can purchase guiebooks and other Avalon-related literature.
Special offers are occasionally permitted e..g. for a historical player returning after a particularly long hiatus. The normal price for procurement is 10 dollars for 50 lessons so a rate of 5 lessons to the dollar. There are deals discounting this rate for package/bulk buying. The bulk buy deals are:
=- 550 lessons for $100 USD [5.5 lessons per dollar]
=- 865 lessons for $150 USD [5.75 lessons per dollar]
=- 1500 lessons for $250 USD [6 lessons per dollar]
=- 3000 lessons for $450 USD [6.66 lessons per dollar]
=- 5250 lessons for $750 USD [7 lessons per dollar]
=- 7500 lessons for $1000 USD [7.5 lessons per dollar]
See HELP PAYMENTS for info on making one-time payments. You can pick up a special by typing PAYMENT followed by the dollar value and then entering the number in words by way of confirmation. The offer's lesson benefits will be obtained shortly after. Payments can be also made in CROWNS as Avalon's hard currency (see HELP CURRENCY and HELP CROWNS).
Syntax: LESSONS <number> or LESSONS DOUBLE/TRIBLE/QUADRUPLE/NORMAL.
This command is only available following a special-offer or procurement of lessons above the standard rate of character gain. It allows you to choose your procured lessons either as an instant boost or for a certain length of time, your character can gain lessons at twice, three-times or four-times the regular lesson accumulation rate.
The 2x 3x or 4x gain ends when you have - in effect - acquired all of the lessons procured/purchased by the procurement. Why do this? Because taking your lessons as accelerated lesson-gain rather than all-at-once ensures your character does not gain too much too soon. It makes sure your Avalon knowledge and character standing and size grows more naturally and absorbs new abilities and evolving repertoire one by one. This has been proven a thousand times to be the best way.
For many Avalon players - typically those beyond a certain age - the option exists to take up a LIFETIME subscription combined with a special offer: you can reduce the lifetime subscription standard cost of $250 by a dollar for every 10 dollars spent on a package deal or there is a special package deal of lifetime subscription plus 1500 lessons plus direct to Ultimate or crowned if Ultimate on Defence and Constitution - for historical players only - at $400 single purchase. This is the LIFETIME PLUS package.
Both LIFETIME and LIFETIME PLUS are available on special request or to historical players only and stay valid only for the 24 HOURS following any other special offer or deal purchase.
