The use of triggers, scripts, and client commands to play on Haven has
become widespread and very difficult to police. Over the past several
years we have attempted to eliminate the use of "botting" (having the
game run for you by your triggers). While sometimes successful, this
policy often led to altercations with players and with players claiming
frequently to have fallen asleep at their keyboards. Usually as the
result of NyQuil.

This being said. "Botting" will now be considered "slightly legal". If
it is ABUSED, meaning that the character has little interaction in the
roleplay of Haven, the character is subject to deletion at the whim of
the Administration. However, well roleplayed characters that occassionally
bot during off-periods will no longer be deleted instantly.

HOWEVER... Any character caught botting IS and WILL BE subject to "free"
player killing, should another player choose to take the opportunity to
steal from or kill them. The Administration will take no arguments on this
and will NOT reimburse or heal characters killed while botting. Should you
choose to use this method to advance your characters' skills, be aware that
consequences will happen. Be aware that you are subject to the whim of the
Immortals, and should they choose to have an invasion of demons wander into
the room with your character... well, it's your fault for not being present
at the keyboard and able to run.

BOTTING ON HAVEN IS SUBJECT TO AGREEMENT WITH THESE RULES. DISCUSSION
OR ARGUMENT WITH THIS POLICY IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN, AND SHOULD ANY PLAYER
CHOOSE TO ARGUE THIS POLICY THE CHARACTER IN QUESTION WILL BE DELETED WITHOUT
QUESTION AND WITHOUT REMORSE.
