Rules:


Deadman mode is hosted with a philosophy that Deadmen must be self sufficient, gather their own resources and always risk their own hard work. For that reason this season we will be implementing strict rules and will be monitoring deadmen related logs for any suspicious activity. This is also involved alternative character.;

- Trading items is disabled and not allowed;
- Selling items in auction house at low prices to make a trade is not allowed;
- Using mules to hold or transfer items is not allowed;
- Swapping items between regular game mode and DMM is not allowed, game moderators can only transfer you subscription cards;
- Trying to gain any wealth in a way that obviously show an attempt to transfer items between chars will be taken as a bannable offense as well. If there are any questionable situations, staff reserves the right to discuss the situation internally and take appropriate action against offenders.

If you find that being self sufficient is not your cup of tea, please do not complain or play DMM trying to break the rules, just skip this particular activity and enjoy the regular game mode. There will be other DMM seasons in the future and the rules may be different, but for this event, these are the rules. Breaking of any DMM rules will result in a ban of all parties involved, ban will count as a ban on regular game mode and may move you towards a list ban if you've been banned in the past.

Final day of the Deadman Mode has started, death of Deadman mode characters is now permanent, if you die, the season will be over for you. Deadman season will end when the counter posted below ends at midnight PST. Prize and best performers will be announced sometime on monday, since just being the number one in statistics won't be enough, we will be checking for any form of rule breaking first.

few questions

no trading means i couldnt say, fish on one acc and trade them over to another acc? and if so, would selling them 1gp each in ah and rebuy them on my other acc get me banned for trading?

is there a maximum account limit?

looking forward to this

No account trading is a +1 from me, gives android players such as myself a fair chance of competing.
Won't people just bypass this though by killing their alts?

forced to quest for rune long, or get 99 smithing on 2x xp in under 2 weeks mining all ores alone, impossible unless u play 20 hrs a day ?? I thought some npcs were being added outside wild for this.  all skillers just keep there rune/best gear in safe deposit while they skill and lose 0 stats? 5 stats and 10 spots is to much, make it 3 stats and 5 deposit spots lol . . ..

so i think this is gonna be a failure at this point aka a skiller event

things that need to be done :

make npcs that drop r2h and rune shit outside of wild/make the smithing lvl for max gear like 80
keep less shit on death or else whats the point? dying isnt a big risk at this point

true esp. since smithers have to mine their own coal. i don't think they should lower anything, since whoever gets to 99 smithing is going to make bank but no1 will really bother if those winnings arent transferred over at the end of the event. i think if they make the prizes good and transfers possible enough people will be tempted to race and pk which will make the whole event interesting otherwise its going to be pretty stale. just my 2c

Yeah, kind of have to agree. Xp rate/questing too slow for me. Good job team tho.
