We're all here to have a good time. Act like an adult and be considerate of others' enjoyment.
Being a jerk in-character is fine to a point, but doing the same out of character is not OK.
Do not post inflammatory content with the goal of getting a rise from others (trolling).
No harassment, slander or bullying.
No slurs or insults based on religion, race, gender, sexuality, etc.
No political discussions.
Some swearing is permitted.
Respect others' boundaries with regard to the level of swearing, gore or sexual themes.
If you regularly come close to breaking the rules while evading player complaints (i.e. "toeing the line") you will be banned.
This is an RP server, and roleplaying is a prerequisite for playing.
Talk like a normal person. Don't use smileys, netspeak, etc. in RP speech.
Pick a character name that make sense, and preferably a surname.
Stay in character at all times. There is no such thing as being somewhere "OOCly".
Be realistic and stay within current lore.
The only acceptable races are Humans and Droids.
If you die in RP, your character is permanently dead. Dying in Minecraft does not count as an RP death.
There are currently no application required for villainous characters or the ability to murder.
You must have a valid RP reason to murder another character. You cannot be a homicidal sociopath for no reason.
In character creation, powergaming is known as creating unrealistic backstories and characters, breaking lore or making your character overpowered by giving them magical powers or too many skills.
In game mechanics, powergaming is known as taking advantages of glitches and functions of the game to do things that your character would not be able to do. This includes block jumping, duplication of items, and aggressive farming/grinding.
As a roleplaying style, powergaming is known as emoting unrealistic actions that your character cannot perform or forcing your actions to be successful. This includes dodging attacks continuously, and refusing to be defeated when you have clearly been thwarted, or performing feats of strength that would be impossible. In some cases it is actions that simply do not fit in with your character: farmers hunting monstrous beasts in their free time, and peasant girls pulling out a diamond sword and kicking butt whenever they feel threatened.
Metagaming is the act of using information in roleplay that your character should not know. This includes the use of co-ordinates, acting on any information provided in any OOC chat, using the Minecraft nameplate to locate a player, and knowing a character’s name without learning it in RP.
The borderline of metagaming may be pushed in some cases to smooth out the storyline, but this must not be confused with metagaming for one’s own personal gain.
In addition, one should not encourage other players to metagame by providing them with information OOCly. Use common sense and resist tempting others.
We don't talk about ender-aliens or Jules' sister.
PvP is disabled unless two players wish to duel each other or for special events.
Both participants should agree on the terms and consequences of combat before they begin.
When a player is defeated they are knocked out in RP, or unable to continue fighting depending on the terms of combat.
Violent themes are permitted on the server.
If a player is uncomfortable with the level of violence they are experiencing, you must respect their wishes to stop or change where the situation is going.
Erotic Roleplay is not permitted on the server. Once it gets to a potentially "lewd" scene, you must 'fade to black,' which cuts out any sexual activity from the server. Keep it on an external platform like Skype, Discord, or Enjin PMs... if at all.
Spontaneous or erratic aging of characters is not permitted.
If you are renowned for causing trouble on other servers you may be denied from joining the server.
