A 'peaceful' character is one who has chosen to follow the path of the mob killer. This choice is usually made when first entering the Realms, though you may also become deadly by requesting a level 57+ Immortal to set you as pkill. A peaceful turned deadly (pkill) may never return to the peaceful way of life.
Peaceful players may legally ONLY attack other players within an arena. While in the arena setting the player behavior is that of a pkiller in relation to equipment damage, pkill timer.
Multi-playing up to 8 characters online at a time is permitted, see LAWS MULTIPLAYING.

- Based on general requirements on boss monster fights (usually referred to as "runs"), hence biased towards ability to kill monsters. "Running" is an important part of the game, so it's important your first character is able to go on runs.
- Clerics are good for buffing other characters, but they barely do any damage so they are barely taken into battle on runs. Most players will eventually have one, but is not recommended as a first character.
- Nephandis are very good for debilitating specific monsters and are used only before battle. They are superseded on most classes on other monsters once the fight begins.
