; Mythgraveyard : truce




a decision made between 2 or more players to not attack each other. When this is done by everyone in game for an agreed upon reason/time (ex. declaring a One-Minute-Truce at the start of a game with long range artillery to allow players to move their units away from their starting location) a truce is a neutral thing. When a truce is made by two or more FFA players who decide beforehand not to attack each other in order to assure themselves a better placement (usually in games of Hill, Bacon, etc) this is a very bad thing and is a tactic used by scoundrels, beggars and point chasers.
