Graal Server: Era
Last updated: August 3, 2010
Welcome to Era, the intention of this guide is to help you understand how Era works, so
you can quickly become a big player on Era. In NO way do I claim that I created this information
nor do I take any credit for this guide. I simply compiled a number of useful guides created by
Sizzle and others so that all the important information can be in one place. Please take some time
and visit the sources here! If any questions are not answered here please PM a PR (Player
Relations). Their job is make sure all your questions are answered, to protect you from scams,
and to enforce the rules.

Standard Graal Functions
I. Era‟s Rules
Ensure that you are entirely familiar with these rules. Failure to adhere to the rules will result in
punishment from the server staff team.
Era basically follows the same standards set in the Graal Online Rule of
Please note that bans apply to you as a person, not your account directly. If you are found to be
using another account while banned, we will not hesitate to ban your new account without
1. Cheating of any kind will not be tolerated.
Bugs. Bugs in game should be reported immediately to staff members.
Exploits; graphics editing, modem tapping, etc
Third party program(s); „artmoney‟, trainers, macros, etc.
Note: Accounts found to be doing any of the above will be banned without warning. [Reference
2. Good behavior is expected from the staff and playe rs alike. The following is
not allowed, and will be enforced with jailing or a ban.
Extreme Profanity (Extreme cases will not be allowed. Keep it PG-13)
Avoidance of the swear filters functions
Targeting players (EG: Constantly killing them, harassing them, etc)
Ignoring a staff member‟s reasonable requests
Failure to report bugs, players disobeying these rules, and exploits
Massing out inappropriate images or websites (eg: Pornographic images)
Joining events in order to escape from fights or to heal.
We expect decent behavior on all channels of Graal communication that relate to Era. This
includes (but is not limited to) the main game, cross-server communication (e.g. global PMs),
and posts on the GraalOnline forum (both the Era section and private forum messages).
Note: Don't bug staff members to give you things you did not earn any way another player could.
Scamming is now Illegal on Era. However, this does not mean you now have full protection over
your items. There are certain rules and guidelines which I am about to explain.
All GP‟s are now allowed to watch any sort of trade at the request of a player. The GP will be
there to make sure the Items/Money are transferred safely to the respective player involved in the
trade agreement. It is the player‟s responsibility to make sure all the specifics of the trade are
made clear to the GP before it takes place. If either one of the players involved disobeys the pre-
arranged trade agreement and attempts to “scam” the other player he/she will be punished
accordingly, and the GP will take control of the Item trade himself.
It is VERY important that if you are involved in a drop trade, and you are unsure of the other
person, you PM a GP to come watch. Otherwise if you give someone your gun, we have no way
to prove he scammed you and that you didn‟t simply give it to him and suddenly regret it. It is
their word against yours. However, if we can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the scam
DID occur, your items will more than likely be restored.
If you follow these guidelines, then there is a very low possibility of you being scammed
anytime soon under normal circumstances. If a GP is not online at the time of a trade, please be
patient and wait for one to log on. If you get scammed because you were in to much of a hurry to
get a GP to come supervise, then that is your own fault. There is no guarantee that your items
will be restored. All GP‟s reserve the right to refuse a case based on their own discretion.
Along with these new scamming rules, comes new rules regarding Cross Server Trading. It is
once again Illegal to Cross Server Trade on Era. Any player caught advertising it in mass
messages or on client will be punished.
Any PR showing favoritism or allows a scam to take place should be reported to the PR Admin
4. Account sharing.
Graal accounts are not supposed to be shared between players. Each account is reserved for the
original creator of the account. Accounts found to be shared will be banned from the server
without noticed. The IP and PC ID will be logged and given to the Accounts Administration
Team to be dealt with. Advertising the selling, trading, or giving away of accounts is also not

In certain circumstances, such as extremely abusive behavior, a user may be locked out without
warning or notice of any kind. […]
Note: Era does not fully follow the policy of e-mailing banned accounts or the amount of time
for each punishment presented here. Each violation is punished according to the management‟s

II. Standard Graal Funct.
If you are new to Graal, not just Era, you will want to know how to send a personal message,
mass message, add a buddy, etc. So let‟s take this step by step.
In order to see who is online, press F7. This brings up a list of players who are currently playing
Era. As you will notice there are five sections. Staff, Buddies, Guild, Normal, and Ignored.
Those under staff work for the server and the people you should PM for assistance. The person
under staff with the end of their name looking like “(Server)” is not a real person and cannot
respond to your questions.
To add someone as a friend, right click a person‟s name and click “Buddy.” To add someone to
your ignore list (means they can‟t contact you) click Ignore.
To send a mass message, which means everyone on the server receives the message, click the
highest name possible. Then hold shift and use your mouse to scroll down the buddy list all the
way to the bottom. Then click the last name on the list while still holding shift. Finally, right
click any name and click Message. On top the blue box it should say “ Send message to selected”

III. Newbie Guide
When you first log on to Era you will be in the central zone, also known as unstuck me. As you
will notice, you are unable to get hurt while sitting in this safe zone. This is because this area is a
no-pk zone. Most buildings are also no-pk zones. If you are stuck, lost, or simply do not feel like
walking, you can say “unstick me” at any time to be warped back here. However you have to
stand still for 30 seconds before it will warp you.
Warning: A new feature allows you take damage in no-pk zones if you have been hit or hit
someone else with a bullet. You must stand still for at least 5 seconds in order for the area to
return to a no-pk zone again.
The controls of Era are very similar to those of other servers, nonetheless there may be some

Your remaining armor, it's only full if you buy armor from a weapon store.
Your current amount of money is next, just to let you know you don't want to carry alot
of money in a Pk-zone unless you feel like losing it if your killed so remember to deposit
your money in the Bank but we'll get to that later.
Your current ping, the higher the number the more you lag. Anywhere below 150 ms is
