Rules/ Motd
#1
First and foremost, respect all staff members.  They are here to make your stay at this server enjoyable.


What is RDM?
The definition of RDM is Random Death Match.  This means killing or attacking another player without an RP reason.

What is NLR?
The definition of NLR is New Life Rule.  This implies:
-You cannot return to where you died for 5 minutes.
-Cannot return to the same RP situation until it is over(ie. raid)
-Cannot Revenge RDM(Kill the person who killed you last for no rp reason)

What is RDA?
The definition of RDA is Random Arrest.  This means arresting or warranting another player without an RP reason.

What is AoS?
The definition of AoS is Arrest on Sight.  This means arresting someone on sight, which within RP rules, can be allowed.

What is KoS?
The definition of KoS is Kill on Sight.  This means killing someone on sight, which within RP rules, can be allowed.

  What is self-supply?
The definition of self-supply is using a class that can spawn weapons and using that weapon for personal use, or otherwise obtaining a weapon through unruleful means for personal use.

            What is a sit?
A sit is a situation where a member of staff needs to pull a player out of an RP situation to talk to them for any reason ranging from immediate corrective action, or just talking to the player to understand the situation.

    What is FailRP?
The definition of FailRP is acting out of character in roleplay situations, and not following general roleplay rules. This is a broad spectrum, and can come in many different forms.

            What is OOC?
The definition of OOC is Out of Character.  This means that your words and actions are considered to be outside of your current RP situation, and this must be discussed in OOC chat, or in some cases, within local voice chat, so long as everyone understands that what you are saying holds no bearing on the current RP situation.
