Description and Requirements
The King's Stockade is a "location" (see below) where players who have violated the terms of the game are placed. Once in the King's Stockade, a hunter receives hunts from friends if they were online before being banned (i.e. if banned when active, you stay online for an hour, and can still receive hunts-by-friends, but you may not go back online after your time is up), and you continue to receive trap checks for the 24 hours after you are banned. These hunts all take place with your normal stats, as if you were hunting normally in the same location you were in before you were banned.
Quoted from Giorgio Sintichakis on the MouseHunt Tavern discussion boards:
- It's not a "real" place. It only appears for those who are banned. Just a little way to reassure those involved that the culprit has been dealt with, such as in cases of scams, hacking, trouble-making, etc. The parties involved and victimized can see their "location" and be at rest that the devs have stepped in and dealt with things.
You cannot travel to the King's Stockade and it does not exist as an actual environment in the game. It's merely placeholder text that is automatically shown when a user has been banned. However, the location of the player seen from the hunting group is the location that the player was hunting before he/she was banned.
