Voluntary Access Fee, or VAF, is the way that 3 Kingdoms keeps running. The game is free, but those lovely people who run the mud ask that you consider making a contribution to the costs of running the mud.

As a reward for your generosity, there are a large number of bonuses you can gain through spending VAF points.

For more information, type help vaf.

                               Topic: Vaf                              

We humbly request Voluntary Access Fees (VAFs) from any of our players willing to pay them, with each $1 getting you 1 VAF credit. You are not required to pay a VAF to play 3Kingdoms (hence the 'voluntary' part), but without them to take care of operating costs, 3K can't exist to be played, so you can do the math. We rely on the generosity of the player community, players like you, to keep 3Kingdoms running for the good of everyone. It's kind of like PBS, but with monsters. As a bonus for VAFs given, you are afforded a number of choice rewards that are listed at the bottom. Once you are credited with your VAFs, you can then spend the credits in the Vault of Ancient Fables, which you can reach by 'kneel'ing at the Center of Town. There, the Guardian Atriel will assist you in your selections. If you have multiple characters, any VAFs given will be applied to the group, meaning that any of your characters will then be able to draw from your shared VAF pool. Basically, your VAFs are tied to the person controlling the characters, rather than a specific character. Once you spend a VAF on an enhancement, however, that enhancement is tied to that character alone (with some noted exceptions). VAFs are not transferrable between players (humans), and if all characters are wiped for whatever reason, all VAFs attributed to that character/set of characters are wiped also.

To pay online, use the below link. Your credits will appear within 24 hours, but usually much sooner than that. For any issues, "mail VAFS" for support.

Goto and then click the Gold 3K VAF icon

Be sure to include '3K' and your character's name in the notes. (e.g. '3K Barnaby'). Only VAF in whole dollars, as rogue cents will be truncated. You can check your VAF status at any time by using the 'vaf' command. You can also learn more details about the individual enhancements below by typing 'vaf <enhancement>'
