WARNINGS will be given for first offences, but the listed punishment will be given for the second offence to allow players to adapt to the rule system and improve their roleplay skills.
    1. Be a storyteller, not a fighter - 2 day ban
      1. You should strive to start storylines from every scenario.
      2. There should be at minimum two to three days of ‘hostile’ interactions between characters before the situation is escalated to violence. Hostile scenarios that require self-defense are excluded from this rule
      3. Killing someone ends the roleplay, try something else instead. (Kidnap them, rob them, injure them) Do something to create an interesting story for both players to enjoy.
    2. Random Deathmatch (RDM) - 3 day ban
      1. You CANNOT kill or injure someone without prior interaction, there must be a reason(motive) behind your interactions that is story driven.
      2. This INCLUDES revenge RDM. If you are killed in an RP scenario you cannot respawn and “witch-hunt”/revenge kill the player or group that killed you.
      3. Sniper rules:A sniper is an individual who holds an elevated or hidden position before AND during the combat scenario. If the player moves their position after the gunfight begins, they are not considered a dedicated sniper. For scenarios where you have a sniper positioned, you MUST make that known to the other party to use the advantage of having a sniper. If the sniper kills someone without making their presence known, it will be considered RDM.
        1. Snipers must be announced verbally, “warning shots” are not an announcement.
        2. If the sniper cannot be announced for any reason, they may leave their post and join the fight as a regular gunman.
