A hydra is an account that is controlled by multiple players. "Hydra" can also be a verb, equivalent to "doubleheading" or "multiheading" although those terms are now obselete. It is customary to reveal to other players that you are a hydra if asked; the mod and List Mod are required to be informed who is in the hydra upon request. Some moderators also disallow hydra, or allow other players to place limits on hydra in the game (either in number, or whether any at all may enter the game).

Hydra are not allowed in Newbie Games for any reason. They are also currently banned from normal games.
