Players may choose to spend Tael at the Constabulary to issue a Bounty on their enemy. Once captured, the length of imprisonment varies depending on the amount of Tael spent.
- 1. Players must spend a minimum of 10 Liang Tael to issue a Bounty.
- 2. Players free of Novice Protection may spend 5 Liang Tael to become a Constable.
- 3. Constables can accept Bounties and receive rewards by capturing criminals.
- 4. Criminals will be sent to prison after they are killed.
Constable Playing Method
Each server has a maximum of 1000 constables. Constables can attack Criminals freely. Once the Criminal is captured, the Constable will receive a reward from the person who issued the Bounty. Constables lose their status if they kill too many people, they may not apply to be a constable again until they have returned to Normal Status.
Infamy and Prison Time
Each time a player kills others, they gain Infamy. When Infamy increases the color of a player’s name changes. When the player’s name turns red they will become a wanted Criminal for all Constables. Players must lower their Infamy to under 2000 to remove themselves from Bounties.
Character Infamy and Justifiable Defense
When a normal player kills a red named player (Wanted Criminal), their Infamy only increases a little. However, if players defend themselves from an attacking player, Infamy will not increase.
Infamy ranges from 1 to 10000, character name colors change according to where the player is on the scale: Orange, Red, and Purple.
Infamy and Constables
When a player’s Infamy reaches 2000 a Bounty will be issued by the Government, and that player may be attacked by Constables (NPCs and Players) at any time.
