* Generally, metagaming is using out-of-character information as in-character that you would not otherwise know. An example of this is using /g to get people to role-play with you at a specific location, or using your trainer to set a GPS waypoint to another player. This also includes using a player’s livestream and giving people information about a situation for them to use in-character after you’ve died.

* Power-gaming is when you force a role-play to go in the direction that you’d prefer it to go, setting aside factors such as another person’s interference. An example of this would be stating that you took a police officer’s service weapon when, realistically, the cop would be able to counter such an act if feasible.

* Deathmatching is when a player attacks another player for no specific role-play reason, or without any prior role-play with said other player to initiate the fact that there may be an altercation, thus giving fair warning of possible role-play to come. An example of this is when you get into a car accident. Road-rage indicates that violence is okay to occur. However, seeing a person standing on the street and attacking them with no prior RP contact because you “felt like it” is what deathmatch is.

* Cop-baiting is when a player goes out of their way to make the cops interact with or chase them, typically the latter.  Doing so is a violation of our rules, unless you are creating an entire RP scene out of it. An example is calling the police as someone who is not your character. There are quite a few exceptions to this rule. If you need further clarification, please consult an administrator or staff member.

* Trolling is acting in a way that common sense dictates would bother, or irritate another person, usually done as a joke but is often malicious in nature. You are encouraged to stay within your character at all times. Failure to do so may result in reprimand.

* Revenge killing is returning to a scene after death in order to enact your revenge, or just generally searching for the person that killed you in order to return the favor. Such an act is against the rules. Those who violate it will face reprimand. All players are to follow the "new life rule," where as you forget the thirty minutes, or entire incident, leading up to your death. This is otherwise known as a semi-character kill.

* Erotic role-play is prohibited simply due to member vote. A group of members came forward and stated that it made them generally uncomfortable. There was also the fact that some people engaging in it was below the age of 18, which is simply unnerving. Any player caught engaging in any form of erotic role-play may face banishment from the server permanently with the chance to appeal after a week.

* Terrorism is simply not permitted without prior administration approval. This includes mass shootings, purposefully crashing planes and any and all use of explosive devices. Any role-play that can be deemed as overall terroristic in nature is hereby restricted without prior administrator approval.

* The reason for the maximum of two characters is that players often get into altercations with other players, then change their role shortly after. Once the other player finds them, they usually try to interact with them, thinking that they are still the same character. Not to mention the fact that too many characters is just extremely hard to keep up with. You also have the option to kill one character off, thus eliminating one of the characters out of two, and create a new one, thus giving you the opportunity to continue rotating new characters in and out. Please note, this is per role-play zone and does not include those who play as emergency services. You can, in those roles, essentially have three characters total. Primary RP zones are Los Santos County and Blaine County. Thus, you have a maximum of two characters per county.

* While players are not required to role-play pulling out small arms, the use of any weapons requiring two hands to hold requires role-play of both picking up and putting down the weapon. Also, there must me a location nearby that you can pull it from. For instance, the inside of a house or beneath a counter. As of now, players exiting a vehicle in the heat of role-play can pull large weapons, though it is strongly encourage there is some sort of role-play there as well, even if it is short. Police Officers have weapon racks inside of their vehicles, so it makes sense where they are pulling it from while in patrol vehicles. Players should still role-play pulling guns from beneath seats, trunks, etc..

* Acting in a way that you would not see in reality is not only frowned upon, but is against our server rules. We encourage all players to act as they would in real life in a variety of situations.

* As of now, since players have the ability to create characters based on the area set as the role-play zone, we strictly enforce that whatever role you are playing is realistic to the role-play zone. A poor example of this is role-playing a billionaire while driving around Sandy Shores in expensive vehicles. Considering that Sandy Shores is a desert town occupied mostly by run-down structures and mobile homes, it is unrealistic to portray such a role and players are encouraged to play the role of a local.

* Here at HighSpeed-Gaming, you can truly become whosoever you would like to be, within reason. However, playing roles that facilitate deathmatching is not only frowned upon, but against our server rules. Roles such as Military, Private Military, Hitman, Serial Killer, etc. must be approved by an administrator before-hand. Otherwise, the player may face punishment.

* It is necessary for all players to somewhat role-play valuing their life. An instant of this is a player being robbed by two other players at gun point. A majority of the time, a person would comply with the gunman's orders in order to try and get out of the situation alive. While this varies on a case-by-case basis, players are encouraged to use common sense and act as they would in reality if they were to have weapons aimed at them, or if they were put into a situation where they may lose their life. Also, players are to look for a way out of the situation, when feasible, such as the attacker turning their back or not paying direct attention. Failure to do so may result in reprimand. Police Officers, due to their training, may be exempt from this rule, given that there is sufficient role-play.

* Seeping has multiple definitions based on various situations. To generalize it, involvement with any community that has stolen HighSpeed-Gaming Assets in the past and has not reconciled such actions or any community that is actively stealing and using stolen HighSpeed-Gaming Assets could lead to a permanent banishment with little or no chance of appeal.

* An example of abusing the job system is, for instance, role-playing a mob doctor, but being on duty as EMS without explicit permission from an administrator. Another relevant example of this would be acting as a bounty hunter while on duty as a police officer. Failure to abide by this will result in reprimand.

* With this being a role-play server, you are expected to role-play things that can sometimes be very tedious, especially when behind the wheel. An example of this is role-play a vehicle accident. It is against the server rules to be involved in a car accident that would total a car or cause injury in realty and not role-play it. You are expected to role-play any crashes that fit said description. Failure to do so will result in reprimand.

* In order to gain administrative permission to fly an aircraft, you must first have a valid RP reason to do so. Wanting to just “fly around and enjoy the sights” may not be considered an entirely valid role-play. You are expected to fly planes realistic to the role-play zone and at realistic altitudes, or face reprimand. Please note, players with the server rank of Member III (M3) and above are exempt from this rule and can fly whenever they see fit, but could be grounded by an administrator at a moments notice. Players with the aviation tag may also fly when permitted by supervisors, or based on set guidelines. All players are not permitted to role-play any sort of plane accident or crash without explicit administrative permissions.

* An example of using a voice client to metagame while in the server is if you and a friend are in a Discord chat together. Your friend is getting arrested and he tells you exactly where he is and directs you to come save him. You do so, without any in-character knowledge of both their location and the fact that they’re being arrested, which is against the rules, categorized under metagaming. It is required that you, in the least, role-play using a radio or texting on your phone before portraying said information. Failure to do so may result in reprimand.

 

Please note that there are no set punishments for any of these violations. This lies with the administrator who witnessed the rule being violated or the administrator who is handling the report overall. If you feel you are wrongly punished for any of the reprimands received as a result of violating any of these rules, simply report the administrator via the forums and the next highest administrator will help to facilitate and sort the issue. Please, be prepared to provide proof.
