    · 16.02: Any information you obtain through external sources such as but is not limited to Twitch, YouTube, Discord, and so forth cannot be used within character as these aspects of communication or flow of information are not considered valid in roleplay as they are not integrated into the city itself, meaning its information obtained outside of character.

    (03) - Failure to use the /me feature to notify someone of something that would be considered noticeable, such as but is not limited to the usage of body cams within character, in that scenario it is only valid if you: /me turns on bodycam, phone cam, whatsoever.

    (04) - Refrain from going outside the boundaries of your physical character, if your character is an old individual, then stay true to that, keep physical limitations based on age and otherwise in mind to provide some additional realism into interactions and scenarios.

    (05) - Robbing other individuals without giving them the opportunity to interact or speak, this provides a one-sided roleplay scenario, which should be avoided as we are all here to have a fun and enjoyable time, allow other individuals to speak and defend themselves rather than forcing them to shut up instantly.

    (06) - Placing individuals into a situation or scenario where there is zero chance for escape or counterplay, such as but is not limited to placing them inside areas through the escort feature while dead or alive in areas where the emergency medical service or other agencies are unable to retrieve them.

    · 21.01: Upon the announcement of a server restart aka tsunami as it is called within character, you are to conclude your interactions and scenarios as quickly as possible, however to the standards and expectations of the roleplay on the server, make sure to conclude it in an enjoyable and fun way for both parties involved.

    · 22.01: Refrain from assaulting and / or killing other individuals without appropriate reasoning or initiation of roleplay, the same goes for attempting to do so, an accident is not a reason to take a life, violence is to be used as a last resort, the reasoning has to be within the proximity of self-defense, and / or justified criminal actions.

Refrain from asking wizards for money and items, even as a joke, you are giving them attention, they may end up giving you whatever you are asking for, which makes you accountable for it. Purposefully receiving items and currency from cheaters will result in a permanent removal from the server and community, this is not negotiable.




    · 24.01: Impersonation of law enforcement, and / or emergency service personnel is prohibited, and will not be tolerated under any circumstance. If you wish to roleplay as any of these, then you may head over to the specified forum for the agency, and submit your application to join it.

    25. WEAPONRY:


    · 25.01: Avoid guns and / or highly illegal weaponry to injure someone for petty things. Firearms are high risk weapons, and are not to be flashed around as if they are toys, use simpler things such as fists, knives and / or other smaller weapons for lower priority situations.

    · 28.01: Upon the creation of a character, you are not just putting a name on a model within a game, you are always to consider attributes and traits for the personality of that specific character, and over time, it is your responsibility to take initiative to evolve and build that personality further than that of when it was first created.

    · 28.02: When you create your characters, make sure that you give them a few strengths, but at the same time, make sure they have weaknesses as well. Then think about how your character would react to the specifics of those strengths and weaknesses when it comes to the different interactions, scenarios and events he or she is presented with.

    · 28.03: What is the background of your characters? Where does your characters come from? This does not necessarily have to be overly detailed, but putting some thought and effort into this aspect will make it easier to roleplay with your characters, it will allow you to build and evolve a story based of the backgrounds of the characters you create.

    · 28.04: Remember that you are to stick to the specific personality traits of your characters, you are playing the life of these characters, so the experiences that these characters are presented with should allow for evolution. Allow the different actions, interactions, and consequences to evolve and build your characters over time.

    · 28.05: Your character cannot be involved in everything, if there are other avenues of roleplay that you would like to try, then create a new character for the specific avenue that you wish to pursue. One character should not be a lawyer, a judge and then some gang member, that is overkill and unreasonable, therefore it is unrealistic.

    · 28.06: Please be mindful of how you enter on-going interactions, scenarios, events, as well as storylines. You can interact with people to see if any opportunity arises, however refrain from showing up out of nowhere to make an impact, or to steer an on-going storyline if your story has not led into the specific event or storyline.

    · 28.07: Upon one of your characters reaching a specific destination its storyline, whether it be failing its intended purpose, or actually accomplishing it, perhaps it is time to consider concluding the storyline of that specific character, and consider new characters you wish to play, and new avenues of roleplay that you wish to explore.
