Server Rules

This is a privately owned and operated ROLE-PLAY server.  Upon entering our server you will agree to follow our rules and failure to do so may result in a permanent ban without notice!  If you fail to read these rules you will be punished for any rules broken no matter the excuse!

We highly suggest running a service like Shadowplay or others in the background. While we spend a good amount of time policing, we do so on a purely volunteer basis and cannot be everywhere at once. Video proof is very helpful to prove matters like KOS (or to prove innocence), for instance.

 

1. Rules of Engagement:

 

  • Saying “You are going to die” is not RP and will be considered KOS
  • Robbery; the shortest response would be something like “Give me all of your stuff or I/we will kill you.” You must give them a chance to comply/reply (MINIMUM 20 seconds). If they are running you must declare a robbery (telling them to stop or saying “I want to speak with you” is not enough) and you must give them enough time to stop or respond. Ensure you are within audible range before attacking.
  • You CAN’T just say “Robbery” and murder them. They must either 1) refuse, 2) attack you, or 3) try to run. Then they are open season.
  • If they do give you stuff, (within reason) and you attempt to kill them after, then that is KOS.
  • When robbing someone and you feel that your victim hasn’t been honest, you MAY “Down Check” them, but don’t kill them (we suggest attacking the player’s arms or legs until they are wounded). You MUST pick them back up. If you kill them, you face KOS charges.
  • New: You may not “rob” someone of their “flesh” to bypass KOS rules. You cannot force a player to do harm upon themselves in order to bypass the KOS Rules. For example: Forcing them to eat raw meat, telling them go jump off a cliff, forcing them to drink salt water, or forcing them to stand on campfires or forcing them to duel. (If players choose to voluntarily become apart of your scenario such as a sacrifices etc, it has be on your property and there should be signs indicated.) **This does not apply to RP towns where you are a resident and you’ve been sold as a town rule breaker**
  • Personal Protection: If you approach someone or their base and they say “Don’t come any closer, or I will shoot you” you must attempt to get away. If you continue to follow them or do not leave their base, they are free to engage you. (MINIMUM 20 seconds).
  • If you or you witness any form of aggression, i.e.; Raiding or Banditry, then you are free to engage the aggressor(s) at will.
  • In response to above; If you are raiding it doesn’t give you permission to shoot passer-by’s wandering through the area. You may force on-lookers to leave (see personal protection). Are they coming directly towards the base you’re raiding with weapons drawn? If yes- you can engage. Are they running by the base you’re raiding and not directly towards it? If yes- you cannot engage. If they are hanging around the area but not coming close to you, you must warn them to leave before you shoot.
  • On-lookers be warned if you run into a raid/war zone. This is not permission to be killed, but be warned if you get too close during a fight you may get shot.  If you do not want to be killed, stay out of active raid zones.
  • Self Defense: If you are being robbed you may defend yourself and kill your aggressor after the 20 seconds or within the 20 seconds if you verbally react to the robbery. Also applies to being raided.
  • New:  Due to rampant abuse, the revenge timer has been removed. YOU MUST NOW EITHER RAID OR ROB YOUR ATTACKER FOR REVENGE.
  • You may not rob the same person within a 30 minute window. This is to prevent corpse camping. It does not apply to raiding (you may raid someone after robbing them/may attack them during a raid).
  • Going AFK and being unable to respond to role-play (robbery or otherwise) IS NOT considered KOS.

 

2. KOS / RDM:

 

  • NEW: KOS is Kill on Sight or RDM which is Random Death-Match. This is not allowed unless in a permitted predefined area. ALL MONUMENTS, RADTOWNS, AND CAVES ARE KOS EVEN IF THE ZONE IS MISSING THE MESSAGE. THIS INCLUDES CAVE BASES. BE AWARE IF YOU MAKE ONE YOUR HOME.
  • Initiating PvP without roleplay is KoS, No exceptions.
  • You must first initiate a robbery, then give the 20 second for players to make a response.  Not doing so will result in KOS charges.
  • If you are outside someone’s base and you see them outside you still have to initiate conversation and tell them your intentions (to rob or raid) before attacking them. Failure to initiate RP before killing them is still KOS even if your intentions are to raid.
  • If you “Down Check” someone and kill them, it is KOS.
  • Killing any and all sleepers is permitted.
  • KOS is a PERMA-BANNABLE offense.
  • Base Camping is considered the same as KOS as well as griefing.
  • If you are KOSed, please submit a /ticket

 

3. KOS Zones:

 

  • KOS is permitted INSIDE zones around the rad/monument areas and in caves.
  • You will be alerted when you enter the zone, so there shouldn’t be any misunderstanding. Failure for the zone to alert you does not mean it is not a KOS zone. We do this for your convenience.
  • Do not block off Rad Towns / KOS Zones with walls of any sort. Caves can be walled off if you own every plot within the cave.  If we find one blocked off, the user will face repercussions.
  • If your base is in or on the KOS Zone and you do get KOS’d, the admins will not assist. We recommend giving all KOS zones a wide birth if you do not wish to participate.
  • You may NOT shoot into a KOS from outside of it.
  • If you’re in a KOS Zone and you run OUT you can still be attacked.

 

4. Global Chat / Offensive Material/Language and Role-playing:

 

     4-a. Communications:

  • Any offensive language is STRICTLY PROHIBITED and may result in a permanent ban.
  • Racial/homophobic language will result in a swift ban. Racial/homophobic clan tags will be deleted and will result in a swift ban.
  • Please do not be vulgar in Global Chat. Global Chat should be used for community outreach and general talk. We have private messages and clan chat for a reason!
  • If you have a problem with a ban/kick, post on the Steam Group discussions or on the Forums. Putting it in Global Chat will get you muted or banned. No exceptions.
  • Please Respect the Admin’s Decisions. Badmouthing or arguing with them over their ruling will not get the situation fixed and will result in a kick, ban, or mute.
  • Badmouthing the server and/or admins will result in a mute, kick, or ban. Respectful, constructive criticism is appreciated and welcomed instead when posted on the forums or Steam Community Group.
  • Mic Spam will not be permitted (screaming through the mic or making obnoxious noises through mic). Playing music while traveling with a group is not mic spam unless you are doing it to grief another player.
  • Excessive smack-talk in global will be squelched if it is dominating chat. We do not tolerate excessive trolling!
  • Advertising for other servers or games is not permitted.

 

     4-b. Role-play:

  • Roleplay is encouraged! It makes all encounters more interesting and enhances the morale of the server. Good Role-players will be rewarded!
  • Any type of Erotic Roleplay is not allowed on the server and will NOT be tolerated!
  • You may NOT Role-play as anything in order to bypass the KOS rule! Donald Trump, a murderer, a bounty hunter, an assassin, cannibal or any other politician in order to bypass the KOS rule! Some examples are: Donald Trump, a murderer, a bounty hunter, an assassin, cannibal or any other politician, military, religious, fictitious, or government figure. Just because it’s not listed here, doesn’t make it ok.

 

    4-c. Names and Clan Tags

  • We do not allow offensive names or clan tags. If you have to ask, you probably can’t have it.
  • This includes names of politicians/religious figures
  • If at any time an admin asks you to change your name/clan tag you must comply or face a possible ban. For some names, WE WILL NOT ASK, WE WILL CHANGE IT.

 

6. Raiding:

 

     6-a. Home/Base Owner:

  • If you are away from your base you may engage anyone who is attacking a base, even if it’s not your own.
  • During a raid, the homeowner of the home may fix and/or add walls and doors.
  • During a raid, the homeowner may NOT block loot/themselves with walls/floors /lockers/vending machines/boxes/any deployables to hide with the intentions of /removing later! RUGS ARE ALLOWED TO BLOCK DOORS.
  • During a raid, the homeowner may NOT despawn loot!  Anyone caught doing so may be banned without notice.
  • During a raid, the homeowner may NOT use /bgrade to replace anything!  If caught doing so you may have your /bgrade permissions revoked and face a possible ban.
  • /remove is for fixing base mistakes only. This cannot be used during a raid (ex- to remove walls to exit your base).
  • You cannot use metal embrasures for doors. Your base must have an actual door.

 

     6-b. Raiding Party:

  • Attempting to breakdown, build into, sneak into, or force open door IS initializing a raid.
  •       Using /remove to take away walls from a clan, community or other person’s base you were apart of in order to raid or get back in is considered griefing.
  • If you are raiding someone and break down walls, you may NOT replace or build any walls.
  •         Drawbridges are allowed for raiding.
  • The raiding party may not block in things with walls, like cupboards, sleeping bags, chests or players, including the raiders themselves.
  • You can’t take over a house or castle after it has been recently raided, although if it remains vacant for at least 24 hours then you may claim it as your own.  The best way to tell if it is vacant is to check if it is looted and if the majority of the foundations are below 50% health.
  • When raiding a Compound adding cupboards that are walled in is Griefing. You may place a cupboard inside your raid base.
  • Clearing another bases TC is allowed but, you may NOT block it back off in any form including doors and walls.
  • Walling off TCs within raid towers is not permitted.
  • You may NOT raid or ATTEMPT to raid the same base within a 36 HOUR period. If you break this rule, you may be permanently banned without notice.
  • Clarifying upon the 36 hour raid rule above, you may not raid the same base or compound. This includes walls built around a base you raided for a full 36 hours whether the wall is built before or after the raid. If you knowingly start hitting/shooting a previously raided base/compound within 36 hours for any reason, it will be considered initiating a raid and you will be banned.
  • This will not take effect until after the raid has ENDED. Disconnections, Resupplying, and re-spawning is considered, and there is a 10-minute window of inactivity before a raid is considered concluded unless manually declared by the raiding party.
  • This server is a Role-playing server.  Raiding should not be a means to wipe out other clans/players or meant to be used to make someone quit the server!

 

      6-c. Types of Raiding:

  • Vacant Raiding, offline raiding, and online raiding are is permitted.
  • Offline Raiding, while permitted, is looked down upon! This is a Roleplay server!
    Counter Raiding: If you come across another raiding party, you may engage them mid-raid.
  • War may be announced between or multiple clans 
  • War has the same rules as a Raid; except for the following:
  • A War must be sanctioned by an Admin
  • The clans/groups partaking in the war must be known (in the sense the homeowners must know who they are at war with)
  • A War is an hour.  
  • Participants in the war may KOS/RDM each other (this is no excuse to KOS onlookers: see raiding rules)
  • Once a clan wishes to withdraw from a war, their opponents have a 5-minute window to stop KOS activities. (No ending a War to try and get opponents banned for KOS immediately)
  • If a war is “over” and a raid is still in progress, it may continue. Normal raiding rules will then apply.
  • Please Note: Anyone caught lag raiding of any sort will be banned.
  • Initiating or causing any lag of any sort will cause perma-ban.

 

7. Building / Griefing:

 

      7-a. Building:

  • You may not have any buildings past stone! This includes sheet metal and armored bases. (You cannot upgrade if you tried anyways).
  • Metal doors are not permitted (can’t craft or find).
  • Metal EMBRASURES are allowed, although metal window bars are NOT (can’t craft or find). You cannot make a room where the only entry is through a metal embrasure. All bases and rooms must have some kind of door.
  • During a raid, the base owner(s) is/are allowed to add and fix walls. It is their base. (Except if it is to wall off doors for later removal with the Removal tool)
  • Prison Cells/Gates and floors are allowed.
  • You may not place “KOS” signs or other signs about your base as an excuse/reason to kill people near your base. Only entering a walled off base would be considered as trespassing/raiding, and eligible for KOS. (You may force people to leave the area around your base, similar to “Personal Protection” above).
  • You may place Tool Cupboards to reserve land where you wish to build. However, if a base is not built in their area within 12 hours, it is subject to the same rules as taking over an abandoned base. (Abuse of this to claim territory will result in TCs being destroyed)

 

      7-b. Griefing:

  • Destroying Work In Progress buildings that are twig.
  • No trapping / boxing people in. This can be in any form of blocking the homeowner(s) and their sleeping bags and loot.
  • A raiding party cannot block in things like; cupboards, sleeping bags, or chests.
  • Editing or destroying pictures/signs in another base.
  • Blocking off a base-owners cleared TC is considered griefing. You may clear the TC but may not block it back off.
  • Placing signs in another base.
  • Barricading or ‘trapping’ raided buildings
  • Despawning loot/destroying boxes (boxes protecting rooms/other boxes/TCs may be destroyed)
  • Placing bear traps around the map that are not for base defense is considered griefing (especially in the main NPC town).
  • Destroying foundations without need. If the only way to access your loot is destroying a base, be prepared to lose your base.

 

      7-c. /Remove Tool:

  • You may NOT block off loot or yourself when you go offline.
  • If you are being raided and put up a wall to block a door to later be removed with this tool you will be BANNED!
  • The /remove feature is ONLY for base editing for mistakes and should not be abused.
  •          /remove to take away walls from a clan, community or other person’s base         you were apart of in order to raid or get back in is considered griefing.

 

7-d. /Bgrade Tool:

  • You may only use /bgrade 1 (Wood) or /bgrade 2 (Stone).
  • You may not use the /bgrade feature during a raid!  Anyone caught doing so may have their /bgrade permissions revoked and face a possible ban!
