STALKER Server Rules1.0b
This is a Serious Roleplay server and we have strick rules on your vocabulary.
Understable people aren't fluent in English, but we do suggest you try your best. We do
not wish to see the use of any Internet Text, such as WTF, LOL etc.
The use of the Toolgun / Physics Gun is mainly for construction purpose. If you wish to use the Toolgun for any other than construction for roleplay purpose, you must gain admin approval (From SAs).
The use of the Physics Gun for other than construction or using objects you need to move (I.E Constructed Base Door that you have authorization to open).
If you abuse either of these Tools you could have them removed and/or have a kick/ban.
The use of Out Of Character should be kept to a minimal (during peak time). Using Out Of Character consistantly can be a burden to roleplay, which will result in a Out Of Character delay increase.
Once the Out of Character delay is raised, you should not use other forms of communication (I.E. Broadcast, Advertising) to speak Out of Character. If you NEED to use the Out of Character fuction, please send an /ar request to the admins to post it.
You will be punished with a kick/ban if you break this rule.
Using Out of Character for any In Character purpose is a serious offense, which is known as Metagaming.
This offense is punishable with a time ban.
This Community is built on respect and we follow this as a serious rule. In the server, you must respect EVERYONE, admins and players alike.
All players have the same right as you and admins will treat everyone with respect, you should do the same.
Failure to follow this rule is punishable with a kick/ban.
Items belong to people, and are not just for you to take. You must either buy or make sure that no one is using/wants the item.
Items can be transfered during roleplay such as bandit robberies, but only weapons and money can be transfered.
Stealing items without consent/roleplay is a serious offence in this game and will be swiftly punished.
You will be subject to a ban for a set period.
PK, and PI Rules
Permanently killing off another player's character requires authorization.
The act of permanently killing off another players character is not to be performed lightly.
Valid PK RP must be performed, PK's may not be performed during STK fights.
During the RP of a PK the PK'er is also at risk of permanent death.
Required Auths for PK
2 SA auths
Screen shots to be taken of SF conversations and forum PM's
An admin must also be present (Admin cannot participate in the PK and must have no stake in the PK.)
PK's may only be voided due to a legitimate complaint with the motivation and execution of the RP involved, For example if you believe the PK was performed with OOC motivations either to settle a personal grudge or to make a power grab within a faction you may request an investigation.
THE PK INVESTIGATION MUST INCLUDE ALL ADMINS WHO AUTHED IT
Only they may void the PK by majority vote amongst themselves
Required Auths Permanently Injuring

This system removes the application system and thus keeps the procces more private.
All fights are considered to be Shoot to Kill. Before a fight both parties must consent to the fight.
Gear return must be declared before a STK fight otherwise by default it is not gear return.
If you kill someone without having consent or roleplayed actions before, it will be considered as Deathmatching.
You will be subject to a kick/ban.
Do not abuse medkits during an STK fight, it is considered unfair, and ban worthy.
The only exception to this are mutants, which are STM and must be roleplayed unless agreed upon otherwise, though they can be STK'ed if they are in a Major Faction Base, or easily visible from it.
The administration team are the only ones who is allowed to perform judgement upon players.
Any non-admin players should just leave any problems within the server to the administration team, and not try to influence their decision.
Trying to do the above mentioned, is called "Back seat admining" this is not cool and is really annoying. You will probably be kicked for doing this.
Role Playing is creating a story with characters, and playing one of the characters within the story. Role Playing can be anything, anytime, anywhere, with any props at hand. Role Playing does not require a script, models, textures, or even a graphical interface to be done, and if done properly, can lead to amazing, in-depth stories with shockingly realistic characters.
