[Sticky] RP and character Rules
ALL Characters must be at least 18 years old
Pick a logical character name
- Using names of famous people is not allowed.
- No joke names, your name has to be realistic.
- If you want to hide your identity in RP, you can use /name to change your chat name
Always remain in character
- Text OOC (Out Of Character) is allowed only if necessary.
- You can type OOC, with /looc
((This is ooc text. It is for emergencies only.))
Military and police characters are limited
- Military and Police characters may be rejected if there are already too many of that rank from their area.
- Your character can develop into being any kind of law enforcement in the server organically.
- When you're overpowered, or in a significant disadvantage to another player, roleplay your fear.
- You're not rambo, when someone has a shotgun in your face and all you have is a broom, you will most likely not win.
- Being robbed or raided is part of the game.
-Value your life.
- If your character has been killed by another player, he's permadeath and you'll have to start a new character.
- If your character dies from zombies, you can start over in your safehouse or respawn. Your skills will be reset.
- If you die by a glitch, contact an admin. That does not count.
Restrictions on groups, communities and factions
- We encourage players to grow their groups organically.
- You can create your own community at a certain location, where you can create your own rules, laws, etc.
- Groups bigger than 5 people need to request faction status to be able to have more members.
- We discourage users from using external discord servers to organize their factions. You can use the faction channels instead.
- Having pre existing groups to form factions is discouraged. Please try to group up organically and in RP
Use a realistic base size
- Solo players can't take over big buildings such as malls, schools, to build a base.
- However, they can be used by anyone to stay overnight or for a short while.
- Use common sense for your base.
Unrealistic bases are prohibited
- Don't build skybases or across rivers.
- Don't build unfair traps or extremely thick and unclimbable walls. People breaking in will do so with RP anyway. A "PvP" wall won't help you.
- Unrealistic bases will get destroyed
No explicit or vulgar roleplay allowed.
- Racist RP is not allowed.
- Rape RP is not allowed.
- Gore RP is not allowed.
- Homophobic RP is not allowed.
- Romantic RP is allowed, as long as it is consensual for everyone involved.
Powergaming and Metagaming is not allowed.
- The use of information not obtained through your character's actions is prohibited.
- You can not use another player's stream or screenshots to locate or otherwise gain information to use on them in RP.
- Do not roleplay something that is wildly impossible outside of gameplay mechanics.
Give other players a chance to react. Don't force your actions onto them.
