Golden Rules



 

TWPRP has a ZERO TOLERANCE policy towards toxicity/toxic behavior on all its platforms. 


 

  • Respecting Other People 

    • Everybody RPs differently. Don’t dictate how someone else should roleplay just because you would do something or handle a situation differently than they would.

    • Remember to be open minded with other people’s characters and roleplay. Some of the best characters come from people playing off the uniqueness of other people’s roleplay.

    • If for whatever reason you are not comfortable or feel an RP situation is not for you, you always have the option to walk away. 

      • If it is obvious a person or people do not want to roleplay with you, do not force your RP onto them. There will always be someone else in the city that you can find that will roleplay with you.

    • Remember that people are playing a character. Some people are nothing like their characters. Don’t assume a character’s negative qualities are applicable to the person behind the character.
       

  • Metagaming – Using information acquired through illegitimate means to benefit your character. You CAN NOT use the information that you obtained outside of the city via a stream, discord, or any other means to your characters advantage at any time. 

    • This includes information about other characters, locations of hidden items, events that have taken place, and more.

    • Using third party communication during an interaction to spread information such as discord calls

    • Using information learned by one of your characters to benefit another character you play who didn’t learn it themselves

    • You may not use the /do to gain info of the other players name if you never heard/knew the name in game prior.

      • This also applies to passing someone an item and using the name as a form of identifying an individual.

    • You can NOT identify someone who is wearing Mask by their voice alone.

      • Do NOT assume someone is who you think they are because of their voice alone.

  • Powergaming – Roleplaying in ways that are unrealistic to your character as well as abusing game mechanics to gain an advantage for your character.

    • Not roleplaying injuries and character limitations. (an old man shouldn’t move like a super athlete – nor should someone who just got shot or helped up)

    • Not using /me for things others around you should notice. (injuries, blood stains, etc)

    • Ignoring the /do actions of others.

    • Dropping evidence such as drugs while cuffed.

    • Passing drugs or Weapons to someone when your “Knocked-out / Downed”.

    • Using crosshairs

    • Using healing mechanics mid combat

      • Taking Weed
         

  • Vehicle Deathmatch (VDM) – Attacking/Downing another player using a vehicle without any prior roleplay/story building up to it. You can use a Vehicle to defend yourself.
     

  • Random Deathmatch (RDM) – Attacking/Downing another player without any prior roleplay/story building up to it 

    • If the story and build up have already taken place at an earlier time, no initiation is required at the time of the attack (be smart – weak reasons will not be tolerated). See “Shoot on Sight” Rules below.
       

  • No Value of Life (NVL) - Not realistically fearing for your character’s life when you are threatened with weapons or severe physical harm

    • If you fail to value your life, you will be expected to put your character on Bed Rest for a period of time

  • Combat Logging – Quitting the game to avoid an interaction or losing your items.
     

  • Breaking Character – Going out of character verbally or through in game chat at any time is prohibited.

      • Do not refer to rules while in the city.

      • Do not actively call out “Fail RP” while in a situation. Finish the RP to the best of your ability and use the proper avenues to report it.

      • Avoid phrases such as “in my head” instead say “I gotta think about something”

      • If you must express something to those around you in an out of character manner, please use /ooc in the global chat.

    • Please finish the RP situation and bring anything regarding FAIL-RP to a Support Ticket. Remember, sometimes situations don’t always go as planned, please try your best to RP out any situation even if there is a game glitch or others around you break character.

      • Typing /ooc about you problem is not an effective way of addressing the situation.

      • If you require a Staff Member start a Support Ticket by DM’ing the @SupportBot on Discord.
         

  • Fail RP

    • Continuing to play on a character you chose to perma is fail rp

    • Suicide RP is FAIL-RP.

      • If you kill yourself through suicide you will be KICKED and given a written warning.

      • Same goes if you ATTEMPT Suicide.

      • If you want to stop playing that character SEND HIM ON A TRIP.

      • IF you want to kill him involve as many people as possible and make it a big thing to stream and RP for lots of people.
         

  • EXPLOITING

    • Use of any mod menu or exploit will result in a ban without warning.

 

While in the city you are expected to actively RP. If seen by staff sitting around doing nothing for an extended period, you may be kicked to open a slot of the next person in queue. Avoid standing around at public garages and things of that nature.

Discord

Rules 

  • DO NOT @Mention or DM the Staff.

    • We love the community but we have a lot to maintain, We also like to RP as well.

    • Remember, our staff is made up of volunteers, which means they have lives outside of the city. Please remember to be patient when waiting for staff to respond to your concerns or questions.

  • Use the @SupportBot for Issues or Questions.

  • Do NOT ask about your whitelist application, city worker application or ban appeals. All information explaining the application process is located on the application form.

  • We all like to joke around, but there needs to be a line.

  • No Sexist or Racist comments (the server must be twitch.tv friendly).

  • No one likes to act surprised, so let’s leave the In-Game conversations In-Game, getting someones genuine reaction is far better.
