DarkRP Rules - Casey - 07-23-2018

We are sorry for the excessive amount of rules, most of them are fairly basic but they still need to be stated to make the server enjoyable and playable, thank you. -Casey

Common Sense
1. Common sense is expected to be followed by all players.
2. Common sense is defined as whether or not the class/job you are playing would be able to do that real life and/or within the rules set for that class/job. This includes loopholes in the rules.
3. An exception to the common sense is when other rules describe otherwise.
4. Should there be a disagreement on common sense Moderators or the highest/most senior ranking staff member on at the time has the last say in regards to Common sense.

Common Sense Examples
1. If you were to get kidnapped, mugged, etc. in real life you would want to live. This applies to RP also, you must have a strong will to live (example: not pulling a gun on your kidnapper. you can't chance your life in this situation, you must do what your kidnapper/mugger says.).
2. In real life it is not physically possible to prop surf, so of course you may also not do that on this server.
3. In real life, you would have the choice to help a stranger, this applies here also. If someone was getting mugged/kidnapped, you would be given a decision on whether to help or not.
3 cont. You can not counter raids, Only mugs, kidnaps, rape, etc.
4. If someone threatens you, tell them to stop. Use 2 /advert warnings (at least 5 seconds apart from each other) and then you can kill them. You are able to kill them anywhere after you warn them twice.
5. A Civil Protection can also arrest the person who is threatening you.

Spawn/Casino Guidelines
1. Spawn and Casino are safe zones from all mugging, kidnapping, killing, etc., if you go AFK anywhere else you are not protected from anything.
2. Do not abuse safe zone to prevent someone from legitimately arresting, killing, and/or kidnaping you.
