In Rule 1.2, replace “Admins may de-Idle a Adventurer at his request” with:-
Admins may de-Idle an Adventurer at his request (unless that Adventurer asked to become idle within the previous 4 days)
Cutting down on the scope for “tactical idling”, of being able to remove yourself from the game for a few seconds or hours as a cheap cloaking device. (Per this discussion at the end of the last dynasty, which Wakukee won by idling and unidling himself and another player purely to trigger some gamestate changes.)
Players should only go idle if they genuinely aren’t going to be around for a few days. Players who time out aren’t affected, and can wake back up immediately.
