I used to play with my brother in the same house. Not banned yet....
I have also heard of various husband/wife and parent/child combinations playing illyriad without problem. I think the devs look at more than just IP address when sorting out multi-accounting

I remember some years ago a GM mentioned that they use an advanced behaviour filtering mechanism to find out if two accounts were run by the same person or even by a robot script. Going solely by IP address is not viable since many users will be logging in from a place where there is one or a few public IP addresses shared by a large community. Even some ISPs do this in countries where IP v.4 addresses are very scarce.

Thanks for all the help everyone.

It seems I was worried about nothing.

I now have no excuse for banning my son from the game.

I can't have anything without someone wanting to muscle in.
