Rules and Guidelines

SERVER RULES

 

Be aware that ignorance or misunderstanding of the community and server rules is not a defense. All players are responsible for maintaining up-to-date knowledge and seeking clarification in advance of error. 
 

1) Roleplay before bloodshed (no random deathmatch/ vehicle deathmatch).

2) Must be 18 years or older (both players and their characters). 

3) Value all life (Yes. Expect the same RP consequences for harming NPCs as PCs).

4) No OOC (out of character) communication on server.

5) No glitching/power gaming/super characters. (see guidelines)

6) No stream sniping/meta gaming. (see guidelines)

8) Must know basic player controls (see Getting Started)

9) No RP that violates Twitch Terms of Service

10) No use of 3rd party mods or apps while on server, excluding the PRC TeamSpeak server while in game.

11) Group size limited to six collaborating players in a given scenario.

12) Losing Consciousness:  If you are knocked unconscious, you are free to remember the events

     leading up to that moment. However, you can't remember anything that happens while you're

     in the unconscious state. Players are expected to take the circumstances of their character's

     injuries into account and re-engage with ongoing roleplay (or choose to remain unconscious)

     accordingly. Permanent death isn't required for any reason and is the sole decision of the

     character's player. SEE ALSO: Getting Started

Guidelines and lore

Lore Friendly: This refers to character conduct and server aesthetic. The server follows the lore set in place in the game Red Dead Redemption 2. If it exists within RDR2, it's fair-game to roleplay or reference. (Exception: See "Super Characters" below)

While we expect RP that is realistic, we also embrace that occasionally game-lore, server rules, and historical accuracy may be at odds. For example, while the historical setting might realistically support overt racism/sexism, this community tolerates neither.

 

Power Gaming: (Including but not limited to) abusing game mechanics, using mechanics not supported in-game to gain an advantage, sheriff baiting, excessive trolling, forcing unwanted RP (see GUIDE: Consent and Safety), combat logging. 

Super Characters: 
Characters who identify directly with existing RDR2 lore (e.g. Lemoyne Raiders, Murfree Brood, Skinners, Braithewaites, etc), or who have the potential to toe the line that defines power gaming (e.g. serial killers, ghosts, etc) must open an #anon-feedback ticket and request admin approval in advance. You will collaborate with admin on a set of rules you agree to abide by, and the community will vote to approve.

Stream Sniping/Meta Gaming: 

  • #RDR-Town-Bulletin-Board channel in Discord is considered "in-character" and posts there can be utilized as in-character knowledge.

  • Your presence in another player's Twitch chat during any RP interaction, especially in situations where you have some kind of advantage, will be considered by admin as evidence of stream sniping. 


Quality of Roleplay: Our expectation is that at all times, players are mindful of server and community rules, the lore and setting in which their character exists, and their impact on the RP happening around them.

To this end, if you encounter RP which you believe fails to meet the community standard, or degredates your RP experience, please utilize the #anon-feedback channel in Discord immediately. In most cases, admin response will be to encourage and support the player's improvement. However, repeat offenders will face temporary and/or permanent bans at admin discretion. 


 

Rule Violations: If a player violates a rule or community guideline while roleplaying with you on the server, you are expected to report them via #anon-feedback in Discord. Do your best to disengage with the interaction without breaking character. You may reach out privately to resolve the issue if you are comfortable doing so, however do not address the issue in the Discord community chats. Do no DM or @ admin or Devs unless asked to do so. 

 

Player reports will be reviewed by the Admin team. Decisions are made collaboratively by the Admin team on a case by case basis. All available information, including previous rule or community guideline violations will be taken into account in determining a course of action. If it's determined that server or community rules/guidelines weren't upheld, the following procedure will occur:

     Rule Violation Procedure (Rules/Guidelines, Community Rules)

  • 1st Violation

    • Warning

    • Whitelist and Discord perms may be temporarily removed while admin investigate.

  • 2nd Violation

    • 3 day removal of whitelist and Discord Perms

    • removal of any Discord  perms/ whitelist roles held in addition to RDR2 Civilian or GTA Civ (can reapply in 30 days)

  • 3rd Violation

    • Permanent removal of server whitelist and Discord perms​

    • After 30 days of receiving a permaban, you may submit a new whitelist application (this will constitute a review of your ban).

     Permanent bans are issued after unanimous agreement between admin and server owner.
