24.1.3 Iron Elite Memberships

Iron Realms Entertainment is committed to providing you with many options to improve your characters. Elite Memberships are an extremely good, cost-effective way for you to improve multiple characters. The value far exceeds our normal credit and lesson packages, especially when coupled with those packages.

COMMANDS
--------
CREDIT REPORT
- See information about your Iron Elite status (if you are Elite). 

CREDITS MEMBERSHIP TRANSFER <amount>
- Transfer credits from your registration account to your character.

CHARACTERS
- See your registration information and all of the characters associated with that registration.
 

WHAT DO YOU GET?
----------------

DAILY LESSONS
Every character registered to your email address will earn 5 lessons every day, upon login. You will earn these lessons the instant you login. This will net you 150 lessons per month which are about 25 credits. If you have 10 characters, that is the equivalent of 250 credits per month in lessons.

BOUND CREDITS
Your account will earn 100 bound credits every month. These credits can be distributed across your characters with the command CREDITS MEMBERSHIP TRANSFER <amount>. In addition, you will accumulate 5 more credits every month you are on the membership. For example, after 5 months you will get 125 bound credits added to your account. This will top out at an additional 50 bound credits per month after 10 months, totaling 150 bound credits membership per month. Mentors and city/guild leaders will receive a percentage of these credits as if you'd made an actual purchase for 100-150 credits.

PERMANENT CREDIT BONUS
You will have a permanent 10% bonus to all credit purchases while on the membership. In other words, members will have a permanent sale running. This bonus will stack with any other sale we run, so if we're offering a 25% Holiday sale, Iron Elite members will gain a total 35% credit bonus.

EXPERIENCE BONUS
We expect most elite members will be established players that have already enjoyed leveling their characters. As such, we are offering an experience bonus to all members. This is a monthly, 5% cumulative bonus (up to 25%). For example, for the first month, you will enjoy a 5% XP bonus. For the second month, you will have a 10% XP bonus. In month five you will have a 25% bonus. Of course, this bonus will stack with any other bonuses you enjoy.

TOKENS OF THE CREATOR
The character that you sign up for an Iron Elite membership with will receive two Tokens of the Creator every month that the membership is renewed. These tokens can be used to purchase unique and special items that can be viewed with TOKEN WARES. Read HELP TOKENS for more information about using your Tokens of the Creator.

IMMORTAL PHYLACTERY
The character that you sign up for an Iron Elite membership with will also receive one Immortal Phylactery every month that the membership is renewed. When opened, these small boxes contain valuable and rare treasures, ranging from credits and artifacts to pages of ancient knowledge and sentient pets. Read HELP PHYLACTERIES for more information about the phylacteries.


MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS
------------------
Players may choose from 1, 3, 6, and 12-month membership options. 

The primary benefit of these longer options membership options is that your characters will receive all rewards upfront. The rewards which are instantly advanced are the XP bonus, phylacteries, tokens, and membership credits. Daily lessons are unchanged.

For example, if you purchase the 6 month membership you will immerdately move to the 25% xp bonus, receive 6 phylacteries, 12 tokens, and have 675 membership credits applied to your account (100, 105, 110, 115, 120, 125 credits).

If your account already had a membership running, it will pick up the rewards from your current threshold, and it will NOT start all over from the beginning.

Note: All memberships are recurring, and will automatically renew at the end of the 1, 3, 6, or 12 month period.


IMPORTANT
---------
Elite Memberships have a recurring payment. In order to sign up for the program, you will have to agree to recurring payments via PayPal or your credit card. This will happen monthly, quarterly, twice a year, or annually, depending on the membership you purchase (see above). Remember that you can cancel at any time and you will keep the benefits through the remaining time on the membership.

You can do so by visiting:

HOW TO CANCEL
-------------
CREDIT CARD: If you pay with your credit card, please visit:
  http://www.imperian.com/credits?page=cancel

PAYPAL: If you pay through PayPal, please log into your PayPal account and cancel the recurring payment.

If you have any difficulty at all with canceling your membership payment, please contact us at jeremy@imperian.com and we will attempt to resolve your issue as soon as possible.


Seconds Abuse
-------------
Remember that we track characters if they are logged in at the same time from the same registration. So if you plan on switching all your friends to the same email addy, you will effectively be limiting them to never being able to play at the same time. Additionally, you will never be able to move them off the same registrations, which will give them the ability to change the registration info and effectively steal all your characters.

In short, do not try to abuse this, we will find out pretty quickly.
