General Information[edit]

Other-Life is a deviant of Eternal Lands developed by Learner, who has and still does, a lot of the coding for EL. The entire game is community driven and focused on trying to make it what we think EL could have been. The community is extremely friendly and has a very varied skill set and opinions, leading to some interesting conversations and debates. In short it's a fun loving server building itself.

Other-Life is Free To Play and is heavily under beta development, with player's voting in all major updates. This ranges from deciding some of the rules, updates such as magic, range, etc., what gets removed and even the statuses of some players (such as Invasion Masters, or IMs).


  1. Use your common sense, until the community decides be conservative about what will or wont be allowed.
  2. Keep the channels 'clean' and when possible, on topic. As the community decides and grows this will change as needed.
  3. If you have discussions in channel about game improvements or changes, try to get the ideas into the forums so more people can provide feedback and they doesn't get lost.
  4. What we have is just what we're starting with, things WILL be changing.
  5. Due to spammers, hackers, etc, use of a proxy known to be used for illegal or abusive purposes will not be permitted. Using private proxy systems that have not been abusing the Internet is permitted.
  6. Characters or Alts shall not interact in any way with other characters run by the same player in any way. It is best if you don't even have an Alt at all. This is not limited by IP or who is running the character at the time of the offence. Other players should not assist by being middle men or help or they may be included in punishment. Punishment can include losing all items or all characters!
  7. No gc Sales for RL $'s etc / aka no black market gc sales.

The Most Important are rules 6 & 7, and it's recommended to remember rule 4 all the time. Rules can be changed by the community and are likely to change with the game.

A lot of differences are left to the players to find out. Some are quite blatant, other's far more subtle. Please also notice that a lot of things have been nerfed (like harm) because they are carrying across broken/unbalanced systems. I advice players trying out Other-Life to remember it's in early Beta stage, that things are changing, and it might be worthwhile to have a look every few months ingame, or check the forums for updates. I also advice players not to rely too much on EL knowledge, because this has lead to people getting in unfavourable situations and caused some very weird and unpleasant arguments --JoeButler 15:40, 1 May 2014 (CEST)
