Note: Rulebook will not cover everything. If you're doing an action that's not in the rulebook and we find grounds for punishment, do not be surprised if you are punished. Ask a staff member if you're not sure. Any rule or policy listed here may change based on the verdict of a staff member.

Administration has the final say in matters, no matter what. Arguing against a made verdict may result in a ban. If you have a problem, make a complaint.

General Rules

ALL BAN ARE CROSS-SERVER!

Permanent Bans
  • Item transferring or any attempts to. (A complete character wipe will happen if you appeal).
    • This includes transferring items to off-duty MPF from your on-duty.
  • Mass Random Deathmatch (killing multiple people without proper roleplay).
  • The use of cheats, hacks, bugs and exploits, usually an unappeasable ban. This includes /charfallover glitching or otherwise exploiting.
  • Making alternate accounts to bypass bans.
  • Whitelist abuse will result in a loss of factions, items, tokens, etc along with your ban.
  • Attempting to force a player into erotic roleplay.
  • Staff impersonation.

Temporary Bans (These may escalate into a permanent ban)
  • Erotic and vulgar roleplay is not tolerated.
  • Random Deathmatch (killing someone without proper roleplay).
  • Player impersonation.
  • Changing your description to avoid a roleplay situation.
  • Powergaming (purposely forcing actions onto others) is forbidden.
  • Disconnecting to avoid roleplay or admin-sit.
  • Metagaming.


Warnings (These may escalate into a temporary or permanent ban)
  • Disrespect, harassment and provocative behavior that clearly shows Out of Character motive.
  • Spamming chat in any form.

General
  • A situation may only be voided if a staff member says so or if the entirety of both parties agree.
  • To an extent, no physical descriptions that have direct references towards sexual or suggestive content.
  • Creating a famous, celebrity or otherwise recognized character is forbidden. (Brad Pitt, Gordon Freeman, Trump.)
  • Players may not create a character under the age of 18.
  • All characters must be between the heights of 5'0 and 6'6.
  • Players are always in-character. Stating that you are out of character requires validation from a staff member.
  • When looting anyone (must be tied), you can only take up to 250 tokens.
  • Cameras must be physical props or entities.
  • Hiding bases or weapons (boxed or unboxed) outside the map will result in said items or base being removed, you will not be refunded your items.
  • The concept of "Timescale" is only valid if confirmed by a member of staff. Yelling TS will not be valid unless staff state that timescale is active and for how long.
  • Players who fail to use /ar to inform admins that they are going AFK outside of the designated area (in D1) may be afforded up 5 minutes at the discretion of the mediating admin. If the player does not return within that time, events will continue to move forward regardless of AFK status.
  • You may not have any IC items unless approved by an admin or approved through a forum authorization.
  • Items that are secured in a player's inventory may only be removed during a mugging or after being zip-tied and searched.
  • OOC chat is not permitted to be used IC'ly. This includes things such as teamspeak, discord. Abusing voice chat or OOC means of communication to be interpreted IC will result in a similar punishment to metagame. Utilizing anything beyond the official SCG means of voice communication may be liable to similar punishment as it's an attempt to circumvent the rules.
  • ERP should only be under private channels (/pm). You will be given a warning if you undergo it in a public channel. If you continue in a public channel after a warning, you can be banned for 1 Week.

  • You can only have one alter-ego.

Combat and Engagement rules

  • During any RP'd death or S2K you may not put any items in your inventory to avoid losing them.
  • Use of animations that affect hitboxes or visibility is not allowed.

Forum Rules:

- The rules are flexible, just because it isn't listed here doesn't mean that it is allowed, use your brain.
- No posting content or links relating to gross stuff, pornography, alcohol, drugs, etc.
- No spamming, flaming, or repetitive bumping.
- No creating multiple accounts. Forum accounts are intended for one person, don't share.
- No threatening or excessive insulting. This includes racism and sexism. Be sure to respect everyone.
- No fake/illegitimate posts/evidence/etc.
- No piracy, advertisement, or auctions.
- Putting +Support and -Support as your post with no reason is considered spam.
- The Fast Threads are made for threads that are forgotten and dealt with quickly. Feel free to put quick posts there. Avoid posting non-serious threads in the General Discussion forums.
- Using buzzwords to attempt to close a thread or de-rail it is a warnable offense.
- Disputation threads are formal, therefore maintain a reasonable, calm, unbias, and non-aggressive demeanor. Otherwise bans, closes, and dismissals will occur.
- Any attempt to demote the opposing side's posts, even under retaliation, will be dismissed from the chat immediately.
- All appeals and formats in the disputation forums may be closed and denied (once warned) if the sender/complaining player is in an emotional state. This may include cursing, accusing, mocking, and anger that renders the complaining party incapable of able debate.
- Do not use emojis in serious threads / boards.
- Do not post multiple threads of the same topic.
- Do not make multiple posts unless you've exceeded the word limit.
- It is still shitposting even if you're being ironic.
- Using alternate accounts is not allowed. Only one account per person. Speak to the moderators regarding special cases.
- Conversations and threads in the disputes may allow you two initial replies to prevent derailment and hyperactivity. Administrators will authorize more replies if necessary.

The uh.. ERP Rule has been altered.
  • ERP is not considered tolerated on the the server. You will be warned by Staff to stop, and will be punished if you continue after warning.
This was what we previously used to do on CRP and made this 'official' a few meetings ago without actually doing an actual announcement. We haven't made a official announcement since.. YEAH. Either way, the rule has been changed and may be changed further in the future. Kill me, please.

After a discussion, we've finally gone back to the old ruleset.

  • ERP should only be under private channels (/med or /pm). You will be given a warning if you undergo it in a public channel. If you continue in a public channel after a warning, you can be banned for 1 Week+

Ya'll already know you'll be banned if we're aware you're doing this on the server and are under 18.
