I spoke to Phaid on the matter sometime ago. I pointed out the section
on HELP GODS and he said he'd read it and we discussed it at length. I talked
to Xanthe and I got her side of the story. Phaid is in the wrong, no matter how
it started, he disagrees with what is in the help section because this is a pay
game. Of course, Avalon cannot operate with integrity if that ever becomes an
issue between the gods and the players (especially as the gods pay to play as well).
You are also wrong though. You post in public that someone is multiplaying characters.
This should never be done, ever. And in this case you are wrong anyway, even in as
far as Phaid having started up an old character to post. He hasn't, he started a new one.
I'm not really sure why, but he obviously has something to get off his chest and
we don't generally censor people in Avalon - unless they are posting personal
details or making accusations (usually wrongly) about second characters.
There are no rules in Avalon, the gods make them up as they go along and they are
often seemingly unfair, especially to the mortal who tends to have a blinkered view
of the world. However, this is also the essence of Avalon and as we pass into our
12th year I would like to think that not only has it stood the test of time but
it can stand some criticism from disgruntled players without you having to respond
to each post.
