Dark Ages Western Roleplay: The Good, The Bad and The Naked Server Rules

 

  1. Engagement
  • If during Role-Play (RP) you start “beef” with someone or a group of people you may shoot them. (For example; when gambling and someone cheats) Though, you will be required to roleplay instead of just randomly gunning someone down.
  • We strongly encourage RP! We do not allow randomly shooting people (KoS) in general unless a circumstance where it is deemed absolutely necessary to do so.
  • We recommend those new to RP ask the other community members for tips as well as to find a social group. This server, like most RP servers is the most fun with a group of friends!
  • If you are being followed, you must warn them before shooting them. A warning shot must be fired either upward or a reasonable distance from the “target”. We would also like players to to give a verbal notice such as “stop” or quit “following me/us”.
  • Robbery; the shortest response would be something like “Give me all of your stuff or we will kill you” then, give them a chance to to comply/reply(MINIMUM! 20 seconds). Ensure you are within audible range before attacking, and if running give, them a few seconds to respond/stop. You may not rob the same player within 24 hours.

PLEASE NOTE – You will be required to have a microphone to rob people. This is a roleplay server where VoIP interaction is required!

  • Mugging; you will be required to declare your intentions of mugging the player/s. Once you have declared yourself and your intentions (Must declare you are mugging the victim/s), you may attack the victim/s one time to steal 10% of their current GBN cash.
  • You may NOT kill the player/s in a mugging without valid reason like the victim initiating combat or running. Once again ensure you are within audible range and have declared your intent!
  • You may not intentionally mug the same person within 24 hours unless in a defense or raid scenario.
  • Robbery/Mugging; You have 20 seconds to comply with the robbers or mugger/s demands or face death. If you feel the desire to try and defend yourself, you may in turn attack your robber/s.
  • Mugging (hitting a player one time to steal GBN cash) is considered the same as robbery and must be roleplayed the same way. Muggers may take 10% of your current GBN cash (for NPC towns) via attacking once from any direction. There will be 1 hour cooldown on mugging (All mugging. Once you mug one person you may not mug another for 1 hour). To keep your GBN cash safe you may purchase and sell research paper on the /shop or at the NPC towns. The victim/s are allowed, at any point to defend themselves if they choose.
  • You CAN’T just say “Robbery” and murder them unless they refuse, attack you, or try to run, then they are open season!
  • If you or you witness any form of aggression, i.e.; Raiding or Banditry, then you may engage the aggressor(s) at will, at the risk of being brought in their involvements.
  • If you are a bounty hunter make sure you have the right man before attempting to take them in. Prefered not to kill them unless they try to defend themselves or run.
  • You may not use bounty hunting as a way to kill everyone/anyone!
  • If you are an outlaw fleeing from a bounty hunter and he catches you, please roleplay.
  • You are the deciding factor if a shoot out must ensue, but we encourage you to roleplay if possible and get taken in.
  • Going AFK and being unable to respond to RP (robbery or otherwise) IS NOT considered KOS.
  • Remember that -your- honor is on the line and should be considered very -very- vital as it was during the time period.”,
  • You may not door camp other players. Players need to either raid a base or leave it as there is no reason to cause grief and harass other players. If you are caught breaking this rule you will be banned.
  • Personal Protection: If someone approaches you and you say “Don’t come any closer or I will shoot you” you must attempt to get away. If they continue to follow you, you may engage them. (MINIMUM! 20 seconds).
  • In response to above; If you are raiding it doesn’t give you permission to shoot every passer-by that is wandering through the area.
  • You may force on-lookers to leave (see personal protection above).
  • Shooting at players without interaction will be considered KoS and will be a bannable offense! This may be a ‘Wild West’ server but that does not give anyone the right to kill whomever they please without interaction. Please ROLEPLAY!.”

 

  1. NPC and Player Towns
  • NPC Towns will be NO-RDM zones, meaning you cannot kill people there randomly / at all.
  • Do not camp NPC towns in order to rob, mug or kill other players. This will be considered RDM.
  • NPC and Player Towns may house executions.
  • Player Towns may not be entitled to the same protections as an NPC town.
  • It is prefered to refrain from building massive structures, i.e. castles. This is not only to help the overall theme of the server but it also helps immensely with the overall performance of the server.
  • We would prefer to try and keep all buildings and structures in ‘theme’ as much as possible. This will not be something we ban over just a suggested guideline to keep the overall theme true.

 

  1. Global Chat/Offensive Material/Language and Role-Playing

Chat:

  • Any offensive language (racial, sexual, or vulgar) is STRICTLY PROHIBITED (Including images on signs) and may result in a permanent ban/mute depending on the severity of the issue.

  • When not talking ‘In Charactor or IC’ (or Out of Charachter-OOC) please try to include “(()), () or []” before and/or after the conclusion of your sentences to keep the theme rolling.
  • Advertising for other servers or games is not permitted and may be met with a ban!
  • Please respect the Admins and their decisions. Badmouthing them in chat over their ruling will not solve the situation. If you feel you were treated unfairly or just have general issues please create a /ticket or make a post on our Steam-Group or Forums. Airing grievances in global only causes rumors and takes away from the overall enjoyment of the server.
  • Having IC (In Character) Rivals is great for the RP environment and makes for interesting gameplay but please remember to respect the other community members. Refrain from taking actions out of character and causing drama. It is only a game. Excessive harassment will be met with a ban.
