Offenses and Punishments:
"Abuseing the Jail System"
Abuseing the System. Avoiding a Jail in anyway: 1. Joining mob arena 2. Logging out
This will result in the tempbaning of 10min, If it continues you WILL be Exiled
"Swords and Bows are KILL ON SIGHT"
If a player with a sword/bow is seen in a PvP Zone, you must automatically kill them, NO questions asked. If they give their sword/bow in PvP, you Must leave them alone. If a player is seen with a sword/bow in a NON-PvP Zone, you must ask for it, and if they refuse, jail for 3 minutes. (+2 minutes each additional time.) If they run back into Non-PvP with the sword/bow, still jail them for the allotted time.
"Armor is KILL ON SIGHT"
If they have ANY
piece of armor on, no matter the type (leather, iron, gold, diamond, chainmail) kill them on SIGHT
! If they are in Non-PvP, ask for armor. If they refuse, jail them for 3 minutes. (+2 minutes each additional time.) Armor is ONLY allowed in events, mines, a player's house plot, and the outside world.
"Hit and Run"
If you see 2 people fighting, immediately stop the fight by killing them both. If only 1 person is attacking, kill the attacker. If they run into Non-PvP and neither dies, give a warning to both. If they are seen fighting again, and run into Non-PvP, jail for 3 minutes. (+2 minutes each additional time.)
Secondly, if a player hits a guard and runs away twice, they will be jailed. Also, if the player runs from the guard and said guard cannot reach them for over a minute, but they are still in PvP, the guard may issue the first Hit and Run warning to this player. First time, warning, second time jail!
"Kill and Run"
If a player kills another player they are to be killed by a guard. If they run into Non-PvP and a guard is unable to kill the player, it is treated the same as a Hit and Run (warning first time, jail second)
but have a more severe timeframe for jail. 3 minutes. (+2 minutes each additional time.)
"Non-PVP attacking is PROHIBITED"
If you see a player attacking from a Non-PvP zone, JAIL IMMEDIATELY
for 5 minutes. (+5 minutes each additional time.)
If they STILL continue after three jails, gather evidence (through use of video capture or a screenshot.) and post on forums. Anyone doing this excessively will be Exiled.
"Camping is for cheaters"
If you see someone camping, i.e. waiting for others to leave an area in order to ambush and kill them; or crouched outside a door, immediately jail them without warning for 5 minutes (+5 minutes each additional time.)
If they continue after three times, gather evidence and post it on forums to be Exiled.
area (especially breaking saplings in the tree farm) is an IMMEDIATE
jail for 10 MINUTES
. If you continue to grief, you will be jailed for 10 minutes
each time until an Emperor has the chance to EXILE
Any player spamming multiple (3+) chat sentences, words, or phrases in a short timeframe will be muted by an Imperial or Emperor. If one is not available, they may be jailed for 10 minutes each time until an Imperial or Emperor has the chance to mute them.
This includes using faction description to speak when you have been muted. Anyone doing this excessively will be Exiled.
"@help, -Help -Irc"
Don't say it
or ask other people to do the same. Just don't. If you do bad things will surely happen. It has become a nuisance and quite frankly, all of the Emperors have tired of it. The Emperors have anti-cheat tools to ensure that the player experience is fair for everyone. If someone cheats, we will know.
Any players wishing to join guards, as well as any guards quitting their position will now need to forfeit all of their armor
before doing so. This is to prevent guards from stockpiling armor, swords, potions, and food and then leaving the faction. Before joining or leaving, an Emperor will check you house, bank, and chests to make sure you have surrendered all of your armor.
"Leaving a fight"
Any Guard leaving during combat will be demoted. You may NOT run into a Non-PvP Zone for ANY reason, including re-kitting, putting away items, etc. If you are hit, but DO NOT exchange a hit back, you may run into Non-PvP, but as soon as possible, must return to the fight.
Any Guard caught stacking kits; (i.e. keeping more than one set of armor at a time) will be demoted. However, Guards may "re-kit" by burning all spare items, (excluding food), and replace their broken armor with new, thus burning the old. Guards may keep a MAXIMUM
spare kit, wherever they feel is the best location. Guards are NOT
allowed to leave a fight in order to put new gear on. If you have to die, die. Have your fellow Guards continue the fight for you in your absence after death.
"Being a Role Model"
All Guards must always be on their best behavior. Any Guards NOT
being a good role model will be demoted. Guards may not
swear, rage, start chat-fights, troll, flame, or brag repeatedly. If someone offers criticism, accept it and work on being better next time rather than yelling at them and getting angry. If you are confused as to the scope of the rules or the time you should jail someone, ask a fellow guard. Use the advice you receive in order to progress.
All Guards MUST
be as active as possible! Any Guard gone longer than 2 weeks without submitting some kind of valid excuse as to why will be demoted! Guards must ALSO
be active in Mumble, being in as often as they can. Guards must be respectful to all in Mumble, not repeatedly being rude or disrespectful towards others. Using other speaking tools (such as Skype) is NOT
allowed, as long as the Guard remains active in Mumble.
Accepting bribes from players is in no way acceptable and doing so will result in demotion from Guards. You are not allowed to give away items or accept items from players, however, you are allowed to SELL items you have received from mining, etc. Any guard found selling armor, swords, food, or anything else in the Guard kit or anything gotten from killing a player will be demoted. A guard must destroy all of the loot from their kills.
"Witnessing the crime"
A guard must physically see the offense in order to punish the offender. Any guard found to be killing or jailing without having seen the offense is subject to a warning or possibly demotion.
A guard may NOT
Charge for a Escort, That said you should try and do as many as you can. But you are not Forced to Escort a player.
