HARDCORE A hardcore player must start at level 1 with only the initial free 2000 exp. By definition a HARDCORE player is pk on. A hardcore player forgoes any god, idle, and linkdeath protection. When a hardcore player dies, his soul is forever trapped in the realms, and as such can not be resurrected. The only option is reincarnation, or existance as an impotent shade. The hardcore player gains exp at twice the normal rate! Additionally, a hardcore player gains +5 to all skills including base skills like magic. Only hardcore players may compete with each other, regular PK ON players can not attack hardcore players, and hardcore players may not attack regular PK ON people, these are separate systems. Hardcore PKing functions like regular PKing, 3 level absolute window. There is also a hardcore chat channel for hardcore characters only. The command to join is "hc /on". Just use hc to talk on the line. Hardcore players must always remain visible on the who list.
