These rules may differ from the server you come from or if you play on OSI where you pay for a subscription and they do not enforce their own rules. These may appear strict because we dislike actioning people.
Therefore the rules are here to make sure there are no gray areas.
These rules ensure a fair and equal gameplay experience for everyone on UOLiTRPG. They also ensure there is a balanced and fair economy as well as equal risk vs reward.
UOLiTRPG prides itself on a balanced economy and gameplay experience for everyone. These rules are a catalyst.
Thank you for taking the time to read them.
Multi-Boxing or Multi-Clienting
Playing multiple accounts simultaneously—more commonly known as multi-clienting or multi-boxing—is not permitted on UOLiTRPG.
You must always be controlling your active Account.*
No Scripts, No Assistants, No Dual Boxing(keystrokes being used to control multiple Accounts at once from one keyboard or account), and no automated tasks can be used to «cause damage» to the monsters Account A is fighting from Account B or C.
The above also applies to beneficial spells, virtue buffs, or general buffs, such as healing pets, players, or friends, casting cures, or using virtues to gain more scrolls.
The ONLY exception is upon death. Second and third accounts can be utilized to rez or gate or help the first character in case of death or NON combat, progressing, gathering actions or roles, as long as they are swapped to and controlled by the account holder at the time, not done via macros or scripts.
Example: Account A(and Pet) is fighting a champion spawn, Account B and C cannot be at the same champion spawn to assist Player A(and Pet) in any capacity via a script or macro other than if Account A(and Pet) DIES and is removed from Combat. They can be resurrected, gated, or healed to full to get back to fighting order. Then return to battle without Account B or C assisting in any way.
*It doesn’t matter how many monitors you have and if you can see multiple windows. The window “in focus” and being “used” is the Account you are controlling.
(YOU CAN and ARE ALLOWED to put macro skills AFK as long as it is not categorized as RESOURCE GATHERING.)
Anything else is considered AFK resource gathering. REFER BELOW to AFK RESOURCE GATHERING RULES:
It is against the rules to gather resources with an automated process while you are away from your computer or playing another character.
It is not against the rules to gather resources with an automated process while you are controlling your character and not playing any other Account.
Resources are defined as trees, cotton, ingots, gatherables, fishing, gold, rares, or any other spawned item be it from a “gathering node” or “monster’s corpse”.
Failure to respond to a staff member within 2-3 minutes while carrying out these functions will result in punishment.
BOD collecting AFK is considered AFK resource gathering.
Being at an IDOC and having a macro lift items into your pack is considered AFK resource gathering.
Fishing AFK is considered AFK resource gathering. (due to the complicated nature of skill gain and afk resource gathering, AFK skill gain of fishing is NOT allowed and is considered AFK resource gathering)
Killing any NPC, Monster, or Creature over and over AFK is considered AFK resource gathering.
If you are gaining items in-game, but are AFK, this is AFK resource gathering.
If the game is not fun to you without macros for these things, we ask you to please move on to a different server or game so not to interrupt the fun of others here.
Example: Account A is resource gathering via scripts, Account B or C is at a champion spawn and being controlled by the player. Account A is no longer being controlled by the player and is considered to be afk resource gathering. It doesn’t matter how many monitors you have and if you can see multiple windows. The window “in focus” and being “used” is the Account you are controlling.
Consequences for any of the above:
Your first infraction will result in a 72 hour ban, all items being removed that are considered a resource from your account(ingots, gold, etc), and possible permanent suspension. This will depend on the severity of the offense and will be decided by the admins in a Discord ticket with all members involved. The ban begins after this conversation has concluded even if you are already temporarily banned. If you do not reply within 24 hours of the original in-game “jailing” or temporary suspension, your accounts will be permanently banned. We are not here to waste anyone’s time.
Your second infraction will result in a PERMANENT BAN of all accounts linked to your IP account. We are no longer giving leniency for this. Obviously you can submit a ticket with an appeal but we record all of these Bans for reference so there is no confusion about «I was just peeing for the entire night».
AFK resource macroing ruins servers, economies and player fun. Not only that it wastes the time of the admins and other players who are affected by it.
Accounts are limited to 3 accounts per IP with 7 characters per account (House Hold) unless specifically requested.
1 House per account, total three houses.
Players creating additional accounts without authorization will have their accounts deleted at to reduce the amount of accounts.
Accounts are the player’s responsibility: Be sure to register your account. You are responsible for the actions on your account.
It is not allowed to share your account with anyone else. This can result in a ban. We realize this may seem different than some games, but UO is older and account sharing can lead to exploitation.
Do not share your account login information or passwords with anyone. This not only breaks our 3 accounts per household rule, but it can put your account at risk.
Staff will NEVER ask for your password. Do not share it with anyone.
Your character name should not be offensive, impersonation of staff, political, meant to incite hate, or random letters, capitalized crazy, or symbols. It should be a name to keep immersion.
Accounts over 365 Days of Inactivity are automatically deleted to maintain a fast and efficient server. That means, if you have not logged in to any character on an account 366 days it will be removed. We decided to favor those playing and a smooth experience rather than those who «might» return.
Spouse, family, sign other accounts:
Open a HELP TICKET on discord to apply for accounts for others of the same household if the accounts will exceed 3. We will happily make an exception and tag your accounts as such.
You will need to provide proof you live with multiple people playing and pass a few in game tests to have your petition accepted for more than 3 accounts.
Doing this on your own without opening a ticket can result in temporarily being banned as we keep a log of accounts being shared.
If we find you exploiting this we will ban all accounts.
Vendor Markets not inside a home
There are vendor markets all over the world in Britain, Zento, Magincia and the like.
1 World Vendor PER Account: Each player will be allowed to have 1 World Vendor per account(enforced automatically in the code). With the ability to have up to 3 accounts on UOLiTRPG, this means you can potentially have up to 3 World Vendors in total. This is raised from the previous 2.
If you need more than 3 vendors you are free to place as many as you wish in the confines of your own player homes without restrictions 🙂
Do not page or ask staff to give handouts or hold events.
Under no circumstances will staff return lost items. Game play is at your own risk. This includes (but is not limited to) duel pits, vendors and trade.
Do not page to swear, insult or argue with staff.
Do not page staff in game to complain about Mechanics that you dislike. There is a suggestions and feedback section on the forums.
3rd Party Programs
Client modifications and cosmetic changes (eg. Treehack) are allowed as long as they do not change the way the client interfaces with the server.
It is against the rules to distribute client modification, accepting modifications, programs or hacks could put your account at risk to hackers.
UOSteam, Razor, Razor Enhanced, Orion, and Classic Assist are permitted.
Exploitation of Bugs
Exploiting any bug is against the rules. This includes bugs that are beneficial or not beneficial.
Accepting or possession of bugged items is against the rules.
Unattended macroing is within the rules for skill gain(see below). This DOES NOT include gathering of resources or purchasing of items of any kind: see «Resources» above.
You may macro SKILL GAIN within Dungeons, boats, the world, and houses at your own risk.
There should be no macros for farming monsters automatically, any automated killing, event running, fishing, and “resource gathering”. If you are gaining resources it is Resource Gathering. If you are using pre gathered resources it is not.
You are not allowed to macro in a blessed area or exploit the fact that there is no damage in these areas to raise skills on yourself or a pet. This is a quality of life addition for those areas, and you are on the honor system. Those found doing so will have their skills wiped. This includes pets.
Blocking and Traps
Blocking during combat, with either your character, or another object is considered griefing, unless done by accident, or by a not player mobile. This includes boxing people in with objects.
It is against the rules to contain a players ghost in such a way that they cannot escape.
Stamina trapping using your character is not allowed.
Trapping other players pets in houses or on boats is against the rules as this just causes grief.
It is illegal to:
Use a macro or script to complete any part of the house placement procedure. It must be done entirely by hand.
Trap an NPC in your house. If the NPC can get in, exits must be available for it to leave.
It is legal to: Trap players within a house. (Use the Leave House Function)
Houses do decay, but it takes MUCH longer. A range of 50-70 Days for a house to fully decay if you do not refresh it by opening a door or dbl clicking the house sign within the 50-70 days. Click for more info!
It is legal to:
To board another’s boat
To break into a boat hull. Boat Hulls are not secure. Store items here at your own risk.
Consistent actions like this however will be considered griefing. Please just do the right thing and let others know if their ships are left unsecure.
Boats do not decay as fast as OSI to give people more fun on the sea! We do not disclose the amount of days a boat can stay at sea, you will need to keep an eye on your boat for decay status. (not everything can be handed to you! hehe)
It is illegal to: False advertise on vendors
It is Legal to: Host a lottery vendor
It is ILLEGAL to host a lottery vendor with ZERO prizes. There has to be at least ONE prize greater or equal to the price of the highest lottery box price.
Staff will not return gold from Lottery Vendors.
Scams are NOT ALLOWED. Scamming using Discord or the Forums will result in a warning and items returned to the scammed player. Multiple offenses will result in a ban.
False gating will be deemed illegal when the destination results in trapped, or stuck player ghosts.
Events and Handouts
Events are held at the discretion of the staff. No event guarantees a prize nor are staff members required to give one.
Do not page for events.
Server handouts are given by senior staff at their discretion. Events, holidays and other occasions do not guarantee a server handout.
Server handouts can be removed by shard administrators at any time. Buy, sell and trade these items at your own risk. Do not page regarding handouts.

Guild Names cannot be racist (Within the Staff discretion).
Due to the large player-base, language and profanity is not monitored. Please use the ignore feature if a player is bothering you. However racism and overly excessive harassment in game are actionable.
Racist material, wording (other than speech) or symbols used in game will be removed.
It is illegal to: Exploit the Server in any way, including Denial of Service, mechanic exploits, unauthorized access to accounts not belonging to you, etc.
It is against the rules to: Imitate any Staff Members.
It is against the rules to : Advertise other shards, both in game, on the Forums, and discord, except where permitted. You are welcome to talk about other servers in discord in passing just don’t post advertisements, links, and recruitment. Also, please don’t talk down about other servers. Choice is actually a good thing!
Exception to the rules above for Servers:
By participating in UOLiTRPG, you agree to not recruit for, or participate in any servers that mimic, imitate, or steal from UOLiTRPG. Any violation of this non-compete clause will result in immediate ban from the game. Please note that this clause does not prohibit playing on other servers, only those that are clearly intended to harm or maliciously smear UOLiTRPG.
To ensure transparency, we want to clarify the server rules regarding player removal. If we detect any issue that violates our rules, we will speak with the player first before taking any action. Unless a violation is illegal, breaks our internal NDA or Policy(which fall under common business practices), intentional acts of malice toward the server, or violates our safe space rules with the intention of harming others, no player will be removed from the server without prior warning. We understand that misunderstandings can happen, so we want to emphasize that players are always given a chance to tell their side of the story, an internal discussion is then had, and if and only if a major infraction has occurred will action be taken.
Playing the game positively and being a good influence will never result in removal. Every decision to remove a player is based on our transparent and concise rules, which are there to avoid ever having to remove anyone, when possible.
Cross Server Recruitment
Recruiting members to join your server will result in an instant ban and all characters being deleted.
Bashing UOLiTRPG in a public forum will result in a 24 hour ban and if it continues will result in loss of your accounts.
