Introduction

This page is the central rules list for the entirety of our roleplay community. You are expected to know and be familiar with all the rules on this page before playing on our server, this includes checking back frequently for any updated rules.

We want to foster great roleplay and experiences while you play on our roleplay servers. As such these rules are strictly enforced and are punishable by a kick or ban from our servers or community with no warning.

It is your responsibility to follow and keep up to date with our rules, nobody will be grandfathered in or is exempt to the rules. If you encounter a player breaking any of our rules do not break RP to call them out. Gather evidence, then visit our player reporting section and follow the instructions there.

All rules are subject to admin discretion.

If you are unsure about any rules please ask a support member or higher.

If you witness someone breaking a rule, this does not give you the right to break rules too, stay calm and in-character, obtain video-evidence and then report said, individual.


General

You must be 18 years or older to play here (exceptions may be made)
This is an English language community. Roleplay must be conducted in English
Player names must be an appropriate first name (famous names may not be used and all names are subject to admin review)

You are not aloud to kill a players tame or touch it. The reason behind this is sometimes it takes a long time to tame something.

You are not aloud to engage in PVP in or around the Main Market created by the server admin. This doesn't include players market areas.

At all times you must value your life and the lives of others. This includes, but is not limited to:

You cannot kill someone without first having interaction or announcement of your presence by yourself or your group.
We have ZERO tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, abuse, or harassment
We do not allow extremism, terrorism, torture, rape.



Fail RP

Dropping or dumping any items while handcuffed is not permitted


Using any means to transfer money from one of your own characters to another of your characters is not permitted.

Your alternate characters may know each other but cannot share information or knowledge without gaining it through RP.

You are expected to roleplay out your injuries realistically and any consequences that your injuries involve.

Jumping from elevated areas to get away from anyone and getting yourself incapacitated is considered Fail RP.

Power gaming is not allowed. You may not use items, actions, or emotes that are not in-game to excessively change the roleplay scenario.

Trolling and any unbecoming roleplaying attitude is not allowed. This includes but is not limited to:

Forcing unwanted involvement in RP situations
Excessive swearing
You are not allowed to combat log. Combat logging is defined as disconnecting while in an active RP scenario. This includes but is not limited to:
Disconnecting whilst you're being followed;
Disconnecting whilst you're being held hostage;
If you become disconnected while in an RP scenario you must immediately try to reconnect and contact those involved that you are attempting to reconnect.


Ingame chat is not for conversations. RP it out in chat.
Voice changers are not allowed unless they are used as the character's "natural voice" in roleplay.
You cannot threaten or force someone to transfer their property (housing, gear, items, etc.).

Metagaming

You cannot use anything that your character would not know to your advantages. This includes but is not limited to streams, forums, text (chat), etc.

You are not allowed to mention other people's names if you have not acquired that information from someone.

If you are found to be metagaming via information your character would not know or by watching someone’s stream the minimum ban time will be one week and will be determined by admin discretion.

Hostages must be genuine and not be willing participant with the hostage takers. Both parties will be found at fault if hostages are not genuine.

New Life Rule

The following New Life Rules apply to everyone except in any case where an admin+ rules otherwise. These rules are strictly enforced and if you’re found not abiding by the following New Life Rules you will be punished.

You may remember all events up to being knocked out but may not remember anything while on the ground.


Cheating, Exploiting, & Hacking

You are not allowed to use any scripts, hacks or any mods. This will result in an immediate permanent ban.

You are not allowed to use any exploit in order to get an advantage, breaching this rule will result in a ban at admin discretion (up to a permanent ban). If you discover an exploit please report it immediately to an Admin or in the Issues tab with evidence.

Exploiting can be defined as, but not limited to:
Duplicating items;
Duplicating money;
Abusing any bug that might be present in-game in order to obtain an advantage;
Screen altering effects, crops, or anything similar giving a player an advantage is strictly prohibited.

These are merely examples. This, therefore, means that there are other ways that you could be exploited, just have a bit of common sense and don't take chances if you think that what you are doing could be violating this rule.

If you have been banned on one account, you are not allowed to use another account in order to evade the original ban. If you are caught ban evading or helping someone ban evade you will be punished accordingly.

Teamspeak (Coming Soon)

Advertising on the TS server (another server, service, or product) other than TheSlipyShow is a bannable offense. Also applies to forums and In game.

You must always have a working mic when playing on the server unless you have a prior agreement with staff.

Don't abuse your TS permissions (mass move, etc.).

Trolling and Harassment rules apply in-game and TS.
