General Rules

This section applies to all players.

This section will include topics such as:

  • Chat
  • Greifing and stealing
  • Traps and Trespassing
  • Player vs. Player (PVP)
  • Other rules

Chat Rules

  • English only in the chat

This server is intended for english speaking players, and is hosted in New York. As such, english only for the public chats. Town chats, PMs, and other non public forms of messaging are allowed to be non-english.

  • No Begging

This is pretty easy to understand. Don't beg. Period. Not for money, items, ranks, towns, etc. It's okay to ask your town members and friends for items and help, but don't ask an admin or mod. They won't give you anything other then rule enforcement.

  • Respect Others

This includes name-calling and swearing. We won't censor general swearing but using it to demean or harm another player it's not okay.

  • Keep out real world politics

We don't care to hear about your politics and we aren't going to let you talk about it. In-game politics are allowed.

  • Don't Spam

It's annoying. It ruins other's experience. It results in muting. Don't get muted, it is not fun. FYI spamming includes excessively using capitals. Word emphasis = OKAY. SENTENCE EMPHASIS = NOT OKAY

  • Don't Advertise

If you have something to sell on the server, that's fine! Sell sell sell! If you want someone to leave the server or are talking about another one, that's not okay.

Punishments

  1. Warning from staff
  2. Mute, 5 minutes
  3. Mute, until appeal

Greifing and Stealing

We don't want to break this down like we would for a child, so here it goes. If it isn't yours and you don't have permission, do not touch it.

  • Before building or destroying in the wild, check for any towns nearby.
  • Before taking from a chest, ask yourself “Am I supposed to take from here.”
  • Before destroying someones place, say to yourself “How would that person feel?”

  2. Jail, time at staff discretion
  3. Kick
  4. Temporary Ban, time at staff discretion

Traps and Trespassing

  • Traps may not be used or activated during peace time.

Traps are defined as follows:

  • Any redstone device that, once activated, is designed to harm a player
  • A town spawn that does not allow for safe entry and exiting
  • Large holes placed to cause players to fall
  • Anything else that staff determines is a trap.
  • Trespassing is prohibited. In order to be found as trespassing the property must be within town borders, or marked as Private Property with a username below on a sign. Properties marked as private within a town does not restrict mayor or agents of the mayor from entering.
  • To be considered in violation of this rule, the offending player must have been asked by the owner 2 times to leave, and the owner must have given a fair chance to the offender to do so.

Player vs. Player (PVP)

Player vs Player is herein to be called PVP.

  • Unprovoked attacks in wilderness are allowed.
  • Unprovoked repeated attacks are not allowed.
  • Attacks in towns are not allowed, and town-wide PVP is not allowed.
  • Fighting in PVP areas in a town is okay, but all PVP areas within a town must be clearly marked at all entrances.
  • If a PVP space is open (no walls/doors or other organized means of entrance) it must have a sign marking the area on each side, with at least one sign every 10 (ten) blocks.

In general, if you kill someone unprovoked one times, fine good job you got them. If you are targeting a certain player that is not okay.

  • Arenas may be created in towns, the rules for such are decided by the town and will not be enforced by staff.

Note: War changes rules. See War page for details
