Regulations on Exploiting
We are adopting a new set of policies in regards to exploits and how we handle them, please read about it here:

Since Mortal Online is a sandbox game, a multitude of features emerge that were not originally intended, however not all of those things are considered exploits, nor are we able to lay down a general rule-set that would allow us to adequately enforce the rules on the server. Therefore we will follow a policy where exploits are explicitly stated, and any further occurrence will be actively punished.
Exploits will be removed from the list once they have been resolved by the developers, and placed in a history list, so that if it is suddenly again possible to do, all players still have reference to what was considered an exploit in the past. It will be up to the players to know and keep themselves up to date as to what is considered an exploit, and a lack of knowledge doesn't alleviate one from punishment. Therefore if you are not sure about a new mechanic, petition a GM to be sure.
I believe this is the first game to ever publish an official list of exploits which are punishable. Once again, breaking the mold of what has come before!
The current list is small:
Resurrecting through a palisade wall
Climbing a palisade wall

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
